PoE is not an MMO, but I agree that it is the best F2P by far for those of us who dislike MOBAs.
Originally posted by MMOVet74

Haven't bought WOD yet, waiting for queues to settle down. I play on high pop servers. But I saw this posted in the forums. Seems like there is a shitload to do if you ask me. 

garrisons:
  • obtain buildings, plans to build more, work on your progress.
  • obtain mats from garrisons, sell them if you want to play AH, level professions if you don't.
  • obtain followers for your garrisons; you can level them, gear them, and alter their quality by doing experience missions which will also benefit the level 100 missions for your legendary/gear/etc.
  • certain buildings like the tavern/inn let you recruit additional followers once a week; if you find that you get addicted to these, like most of us did, you may be interested in that.
dailies:
  • fishing
  • apexis crystals (which will take you a long time without a group)
  • pet battle masters
  • pet battle garrison
pvp:
  • 1) ashran quests to explore; try to find items that give you unfair pvp buff that lets you annihilate all of the people on the other faction, which is what pvp is anyway, and then gloat about how great you are.
  • 2) you can find novelty items with limited duration that let you do cool things in ashran. ie: i'm a priest so i can fly in ashran kek
  • 3) get honor to buy honor gear to queue for heroics if you wanted to do those but are unable to.
  • 4) skirmishes, bgs, etc.
"i'm too good for wod content":
  • 1) queue proving grounds, tear your hair out at that.
pet battles?!?!?!:

there's a LOT of pet battle achievements in draenor; 

  • to battle all of the tamers each day which lets you obtain pet charms is its own achievement.
  • to capture 600 unique pets rewards stormwing.
  • to win 500 battles in draenor lets you obtain the level 3 of pet menagerie.
  • to battle 2000 lets you obtain the pet battle statue monument.
  • there's pets to get in each zone which are found in hidden objects (and must be hatched, for example), dropped from rares, or just found in the wilderness as both primary and secondary pets.
all in all,

doing ALL of the above listed content actually results in easily 5+ hours spent. this is assuming that you play excessively. there's a lot of content to do, you just don't want to do it. LFR releases in a few weeks, and MC comes out soon. if you complain to complain, sorry, no one can help you.
 

ALSO FORGOT TO MENTION:

there's reputations to grind via killing special rares who then drop account-bound rep tokens which will let you buy novelty items such as toys, mounts, etc.

SUPER RARE FUN-TIME MOBS: their spawn rates are assumed to be similar to TLPD, but they drop mounts for EVERY PLAYER who tags the kill (minus the wolf rare who only drops one which is personal loot so no one can ninja it if it's PL*) so you can camp these if you are that bored

Thank you for this. I was getting temped to get back into WoW but reading this reminded me how addicting and social life destroying this game can be. I'll stick to games that don't take over my life, thank you very much.

Now you realize that we are just not the target audience any more.

Barely alive? The last official numbers had FFXIV at 1.5 million subs and climbing.

 

While the MMORPG graveyard is filled with failed themeparks, it also has lots of successes. WoW and FFXIV, obviously but Rift seems to be doing well and while LotRO is on the decline, it's also been running for almost ten years at this point. There's also lesser known  games like Wizard101 and Pirate101 that are both themeparks and both doing well (though catering to a different demographic).

 

Saying themeparks were never alive is borderline trolling.

The ratio of successful to failed themeparks is very close to 0. If anyone in this thread is trolling it's the people claiming ESO, Rift, Aion, TERA etc. are successful games.

A better question would be: Was the themepark ever alive? WIth one success (WoW), one barely alive (FFXIV) and hundreds of failures I would say no.
Nope but I would play an old school MMO (DAoC) if it ditched its subscription and went F2P.

Neither. Over 90% of negative user reviews are from people who didn't even install the game which makes them completely worthless.

Critic reviews are not to be trusted either. Take for example this very site: They usually release a review while there are huge ads of that particular game plastered all over the website. Do you really think the amount of money (and the potential future ad money) don't sway their scores? They are human after all. Even if it's only subconsciously it will definitely affect them.

 

The best way to see if you'll like a game is to go to twitch and watch others stream it. You can trust your own eyes.

$50 on path of exile because it rocks and it's F2P and the devs deserve it.

Around $120 on steam sales.

$0 on MMOs. It seems that after being the victim of hype so many times in the past I have finally learned my lesson. My friends are still crying for the money they wasted on ESO and WIldstar.

Just report him guys. The mods will take care of him.
Wanna bet that at least 90% of it is from the first 1-2 months?
Please stop comparing this game to DAoC. They did that with GW2 too. Besides RvR, they have absolutely nothing in common. And even the RvR is different. It's more like WoW's wintergrasp with a 3rd faction than "DAOC RvR"

Yeah, I was expecting an answer like that. The only "relevant" sources are those which seem to be in your favor. Fact is, the "just released" AA is far behind much older (and supposedly dying) games.

The google trends for AA are pretty amusing by the way. Keyword: Russia. Big success indeed... =P

WoW hours played per day on raptr: 180.000

WoW hours played per day on xfire: 6.568

 

AA hours played per day on raptr: 86.000

AA hours played per day on xfire: 450 (70 users lol)

 

 

And raptr is nowhere near as big as google trends / reddit / twitch. Can you now see how irrelevant xfire is?

If you want to use that kind of worthless "stats", you have to accept them all... let's relativize:

 http://fr.xfire.com/games/archa/ArcheAge/

Ooops...

The ranks...

WoW #4

GW2 #10

SW:TOR #14

EVE #19

FFXIV #24

and then only AA #25

Yeah, fantastic for a new game indeed... it just get crushed by most of the games the "experts" here say to be dead or dying. You know, like GW2 or SW:TOR, supposed to be almost dead... yet they still have way more players than AA.

Xfire has not been relevant for like 2-3 years now.

They know that the more good F2P MMOs exist, the harder it  is for B2P/P2P MMOs to survive.

Are all those facts?

No I think just his opinion.

Some people sound so sure of themselves around here they could be telling facts. Hard to make a difference sometimes.

Some people clearly know when someone posts an opinion, but go ahead and points out for some reason that they aren't facts, as if we the rest of us didn't know.

 

Some yes.

However the guy i quoted, not so long ago used redddit, raptr and twitch as some kind of factual statistics to prove AA is the number two MMO just behind WOW.

So yeah i had to make sure. Like i said with some people you never know. 

I agree, it needs to be clarified. I don't think that poster meant it to be an opinion. It certainly was presented as factual. What about "it's more popular than any other MMO besides WoW" sounds like it's an opinion?

I dunno, I'll put SWTOR, FFXIV, GW2 up against it to see how they fare.

I don't know, his statements are so 'out there' that i can't help but feel that its just an elaborate form of sarcasm, it would after all make far more sense that way

I recall the thread that poster made recently, he's quoting from Redit activity. So, because there was a lot of activity surrounding AA on Redit, it became the 2nd most popular MMO next to WoW. Mind you, this was based on  process of elimination, given that there was really no other data on the subject. So I guess that justifies making huge leaps to conclusions.

I did some edits to that thread. It's not only reddit. It's google trends, raptr and others. The evidence is overwhelming. Also just use logic, man. AA is new, it's normal to be more popular than older MMOs. We will see if it stays that way in a couple of months. I believe it will.

If you like PvP, AA.

If you like PvE, WoW.

FF isn't even a choice.  WoW offers much more, and is better in all aspects.

 Ive spent about 8 hours total farming here and have something like 50 tokens.  Its insane and its boring.

 

You obviously did it wrong. Did you try to solo it? I got 3 50s and all got 150 tokens within 5-6 hours. You need to find a group where everyone need rolls for one of the tokens and a spot that you don't have to share with others.

It's hilarious that people consider this a "grind". I guess they have short memories or are new to MMOs.

The hate comes from:

1) People who prematurely bought packs for over $50-100 and expected to automatically "win" the game (guaranteed house spot, P2W cash shop etc.)

2) MMO newbies who were never part of a MMO release before and expected it to be flawless

3) Fanboys of other games that are scared shitless that a F2P MMO is better and more popular than their P2P/B2P MMO

4) a combination of the above

Nice one!

Let's wait one more little month for the release of Draenor... and we'll really see who kills who

WoD will mostly affect PvE MMOs like FFXIV and GW2. I don't think AA's PvP crowd can be enticed by WoW's overall weak PvP.

Since 2005, every MMO that was released as P2P was a catastrophic failure (except FFXIV's 2nd launch). The most recent examples are ESO and Wildstar which are already completely deserted.

Yet some people still defend the P2P model. Why? Are those people MMO fans or MMO haters?

F2P works. The most recent example being ArcheAge. Probably the most hated MMO of the last few years. Everywhere you look on the internet you see bad publicity. Bots, spammers, hackers etc. Yet, population-wise it is doing incredibly well. Many other MMOs were saved by going F2P (SWTOR, Rift etc.) 

Like it or not, F2P/B2P are the only viable business models for new MMOs right now and in the future.
