OP  5/14/13 5:46:34 PM#1

Hello Everyone,

I finally have time to start playing an MMO seriously and was considering the following :

The Secret World

Star Wars The Old Republic

Neverwinter

Guild Wars 2

Star Trek Online

EVE Online

Tera

I care about the game's player base a lot; meaning i want a game which has crowded servers(EU) and is easy to find other players to play with and i really like to pvp instead of pve at later levels. It having a subscription or not isn't really important. Also the in game store shouldn't be Pay to Win. Can anyone give me a quick overview of those games i listed and possibly compare and make a suggestion. Much appreciated.

I chose TSW, but it's not going to feel crowded. There are definitely people there, but each zone is split into instances, so while there may be a bunch of people in chat, you'll only see a few of them. There are always people around and in chat, it's just not crowded.

I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

I have tried EvE and The Secret World. Out of the two I really enjoy TSW. Star Wars and Star Trek for some reason I cannot get to display. GW2 I left because I think the community, other than a handful of people, utterly sucks. And I never had any interest in Tera.

That Guild Wars 2 login screen knocked up my wife. Must be the second coming!

I am with lizardbones here. TSW all the way. Great story, OK PvP (will be tweaked and expanded upon in the future).

Here is a little fan made trailer:

lol ok pvp, really?

the OP wants to PVP at endgame, TSW isn't that sort of game.  Its a pve most of the time, and just hop in pvp "for fun" type game - as is swtor, sto, neverwinter, and to a lesser degree tera.

 

EVE is obviously the most PVP game on the list, but its going to take a couple of months and lots of contacts to get PVP ready

GW2 would be more PVP than all the others on the list.

of course there are others he could look at.

DFUW because its new, so less catching up, and does FFA PVP like eve.

PS2, because ALL you do is pvp, its all "pvp endgame"

WOW because it does much the same thing as most of those games on the list  PVP wise, but its been around longer and got more stuff

If I'm not mistaking, half of that list is some kind of F2P, meaning that you can try it out for free.

That should narrow down your options.

As for which games are crowded. I currently only log on GW2 and WoW from time to time, and both games are well crowded. However you won't notice it that much in GW2 for some reason, players are more spread out I think. But if for example you enter WvW you'll find many people to pvp with.

PvP at later levels you're going to want Eve or GW2. Both will have a good population. GW2 is going to be a faster paced game, while Eve is going to have more depth. GW2 will be based more on action, Eve will be based more on planning.

There are much bigger differences, but that's the ten thousand foot overview.

That is very strange. I checked which server I'm on and population is set to medium, while yours is set to high.

I had to wait around 30-45 minutes in queue this weekend to join WvW. Today I had close to instant join, but the map was well filled and there were a lot of battles.

I would highly recommend Eve Online. My time playing that game was really fun, but unfortunately due to my terribly low IQ. I struggled to grasp the complex mechanics and systems of that game. But the community here treated me very well. I have fond memories of strip mining belts in my hulk with my hauler alt. But the game is deep so deep. But if you have the brains and patience to learn the game properly. I would say Eve Online.

Tera was a huge let down for me. And I won';t even get started on how terrible the community is there. I can't really speak for the other games, as I have not tried them.

Good luck in your search

You might want to add Rift to your list with it going f2p in June -- should be crowded then as well.  I love TSW and like GW2 as well, but the big crowds will be in Agartha for dungeons in TSW, and in PvP for GW2.

If your looking for PvP then I would say either GW2 or EVE.

Depends on your style and really you gonna need to give details about what game play you want.  EVE I would say is by far the most in depth and complex PvP sandbox games out there but its a tactical game.  As the saying goes, excel spreadsheet in space.  GW2 has a good PvP assortment and populated and has updates with events n whatnot pretty darn frequent.

If you don't want an intrusive cash shop then I would avoid Neverwinter at all cost, even more so if your a 3.5e fan or enjoyed DDO.  It's very arcadish but hardly D&D.

The games I would suggest are TSW, Guild Wars 2, and EVE Online. I would not suggest SW:TOR, Neverwinter, Star Trek Online or TERA unless you want to find yourself bored pretty quickly (just my opinion). Plus SW:TOR is just... Massive amounts of fail is the only way I can think to describe it.

Thank you for your answers everyone. I'll check out EVE, GW2,TSW and Swtor. Does anyone play Neverwinter btw ? I know it's in beta atm so might give it a go as well.

Neverwinter is a lot of fun, its free for you to check out, so you probably should give it a go. The foundry makes for a nice diversion from the rather linear leveling, and the PvP is a lot of fun. I will warn you that if you play a Great Weapon Fighter, expect to be weak until about level 30. But they do exactly what they are supposed to do at level 60.

Don't listen to the anti-F2P crowd on here either. I have nearly fully geared up my main character without spending a cent of real life cash (except for the founder pack, which got me a mount - saving about 1-2 days worth of Astral Diamond grinding). Without using real money, you can gear your character within 1-2 months. You can get runes up to nearly max level very easily, so you will be only missing out on about 2-3% effectiveness while your grind the final rank.  Hardly unreasonable for a MMO.

Out of the games you listed I can only comment about GW2, EVE and SWTOR.

I suggest EVE, because I liked the community in that game and ppl really want to group up in that game. I have nothing negative to say about GW2's community, but then I never really experienced a community in that game. On our server, you mostly see LFG for dungeons and barely any other chat. Maybe it is different in the starting areas though.

I recommend GW2, it is rather crowded and have loads of content. Some players tire after about 2 months but even if you do it is still worth it. This game is a lot more polished than any of the other on your list.

Tera is pretty fun if you want something that is free. A lot less crowded than GW2 but as F2P games go it is one of the best.
