When I was 12-14, I used to play Warhammer 40k at my local Games Workshop, which happened to be at the popular outside mall in Baltimore, Maryland. On weekends, this Mall was also the hang-out for the "cool kids" who would shop or "hang out" or whatever else it was they were doing - basically just loitering around the mall.


Anyway, I was nerding it up, playing my Chaos Space Marines on a Friday night.. and in walks the hottest girl from my school. Her name was Lisa. She recognizes me from school, and I'm already embarassed - but she is really cool and acts like she's interested. I show her my stuff, walk her around the GW store, and explain what it's all about. I'm confident, passionate, and try to be funny and act cool about it all. I explain that I'm really into the painting aspect, and that I like to convert models, and do sketches in my art book - which I also showed her. Mostly sketches of borderline naked Dark Elf (Fantasy), Dark Eldar (40K), and some Chaos/Daemon stuff (super tense, scary moment when she took the book and started flipping through it.. I contemplated taking it back but figured "Oh well, roll the dice......."). You know, the stuff most teen boy wanna-be artists draw, I imagine. Turns out, she loves art and sketches stuff herself. Lots of high fantasy related stuff, Elves, unicorns, and the lot. You know, chick stuff.

This one meeting, this one time she took a chance and walked into a GW populated with a bunch of sweaty neck-beards playing with minature figures.. created a friendship that lasted for a long, long time. We ended up going to prom together, and going to the same college. We ended up breaking up after freshman year of college.

Anyway, in a strange twist of fate. I met my first love through Games Workshop. Not really a "40k experience" in the sense that you're looking for, but I thought it was an experience worth sharing.



The chaos gods smiled on me that night. To this day, I am dedicated to Slaanesh, and in Eternal Crusade, will be slaughtering in his glorious name.



This absolutely 100% should have launched with the original Diablo 3 game. It was present in Diablo 1 and Diablo 2 for crying out loud. (This seems a bit better than Diablo 2's B.Net chat rooms/clans though, but not much...)


I think Diablo 3 is dead. I'll be enjoying TESO.. sad, because I waited so many years for Diablo 3, and still enjoy D2 to this day. Oh well, cycle of life.

Bump. We're looking for new blood to join our ranks before the game launches.


Come check us out.

This article hit the nail on the head. Perfectly said.. Now, whether or not this translates into a successful MMORPG remains to be seen, but it definitely is a slower paced, more methodical experience (akin to Everquest or Dark Age of Camelot). I feel if people give it a chance, they will thoroughly enjoy it. Also, the opening analogy to a several course meal is brilliant.

I have been playing this game since release and have never had that happen.  Nor have I ever heard of this happening.  So either you're lying and looking for an excuse to bash the game or you are telling the truth and someone was hacking.  Do you have any video proof of these 20 occurrences?



I'm sorry, but are you seriously implying hacking isn't and has never been rampant in Darkfall?


I'm not even bashing the game - but it's pretty common knowledge the game is a nest of cheaters.

Outsider, you ask about the Orcs of Orsinium? Let it be known.
Orcs of Orsinium is an all Orsimer guild of the Daggerfall Covenant. We are a PvP focused moderate RP guild. Our goal is to become a top of the line competitor in Cyrodiil, representing Orcs of the Daggerfall Covenant. That said, we intend to be an all encompassing guild and are accepting of our Orcish brethren from all persuasions, whether heavy roleplayers, PvP fanatics, or casual players. 

Our reverence to the Code of Malacath

  • Never steal for it is beneath the Code, or you may pay the blood price
  • Never insult your fellow Blood-Kin, or you may pay the blood price
  • Always obey your superiors, or you may pay the blood price
  • Never kill without purpose for it is beneath the Code, or you may pay the blood price
  • Always fight for what you want for if it is not worth fighting for then it is not worth having


I'm curious how these "All one race" guilds will work.  Undoubtedly people will be creating alts of different races, and those alts will automatically be added to the how would you enforce that?  Would you state that all a person's eight character slots are required to be made up of one race?

Just curious is I've seen talks of "all Imperial" guilds as well...

Generally, if you want to be part of a single-race guild, you will have the common decency to respect that and not let pink-skins into out clan.


Furthermore, we will hopefully have control over our guild-settings to manage if alts are automatically placed into the guild.

No one can really know for sure unless they watch video of what happened to your friends, but the best guess is hackers.


Darkfall has a long history of being plagued by cheaters. Wouldn't surprise me at all if people were abusing teleport cheats to board vessels and kill people.. probably not even stealing the boats, just doing it to grief people.

I suggested more quest rewards, tailored to your class, or at least a choice in what rewards you get.


I was playing a Sorc and repeatedly got shields, axes, heavy armor, etc.


Also the "level restrictions" on many of the quest rewards were annoying.. Seeing as how I solo'd a quest at level 10, why is my reward restricted to level 13+ players? 

NEED a good MMO.

Did you just say the "Story" of Everquest was done well?


Everquest had no real story until maybe Legacy of Ykesha. Even then, it was thin.


And what exactly is wrong with WoW's story? I'd argue it's had the best story-telling of any MMO to date.



As for your topic.. there are no good games currently out. If you don't like WoW, or the older games like DAoC/WoW, you're out of luck. Darkfall is gutter trash, and Guild Wars 2 is boring.


Wildstar is pretty good, but I personally enjoyed TESO the most, and will be buying/subscribing to that.

8 years on the site = new.

Been on the MMO scene for a very long time, and I've seen companies like and other review sites suck the **** of games that have been terrible, just because they have big names.


Age of Conan, Warhammer and Guild Wars 2 being the most notable. Anyone who was an MMO veteran when these games were releasing probably remembers thinking these games would be the next WoW, or the next Jesus Christ, etc. That's what the review companies were spouting.


And then you actually got to play the games... and yeah, we know the history.


My point is, why is it all of a sudden a game like ESO, which I thoroughly enjoy and think is so much better than anything that has released in years, is getting such terrible reviews, while games which almost no one enjoyed - received such AWESOME reviews?


What's going on? Did Zenimax not pay someone? Is this an organized plot by a competitor? I hate to be the conspiracy theory guy, but I don't understand. Or, is this just some sort of meme which has spread across the internet like wildfire, or doge? "ESO sucks, not worth $15, armor painted on, blah blah blah" (Anyone else notice the reviews all use the exact same terminology? I had never heard anyone say "armor painted on" before ESO, yet I've heard it in EVERY-SINGLE-REVIEW!)


I'm a skeptic, and I think some BS is going on..

Kickstarter has a few safety nets to prevent people from scamming, and to ensure people actually begin work on their project and meet deadlines. You can't just put out a kick-starter, get money, and not do anything.

But you don't have to guarantee to actually release a product. And what if people do nothing, KS is going to sue them?



Yes, Kickstarter will sue them on your behalf. The "legal-ese" fine-print is massive, and they have a precedent of doing exactly that.

OP, I think you misunderstand the nature of what a Kickstarter really is. It's a DONATION not an investment and not a purchase of goods. It's essentialy the same thing as handing a kid a few bucks so that he can buy paints and a brush to paint a mural on the wall of a building in your neighborhood or tossing a few coins in a street muisican's case before he starts playing. It goes back to the old fashioned concept of PATRONAGE of artists.

You are giving away a few dollars to someone who you think is worthy of producing creative works so they MIGHT produce those works. There is absolutely no assurance of what might result from that. It's based entirely on faith....and there is no quid qo pro. If you give, you should do so only if you are comfortable with getting nothing back in return. You may be given a "thank you" reward in return....but you shouldn't really count on the value of that. If you don't have faith in the people you are DONATING to then you probably shouldn't be donating. That's it.




This isn't entirely correct.


Kickstarter has a few safety nets to prevent people from scamming, and to ensure people actually begin work on their project and meet deadlines. You can't just put out a kick-starter, get money, and not do anything.

"Finally, any game I see involved in a "kickstarter" is just a bad publicity in my eyes and I would stay away from it. If people don't have the funds to make something that means they are unworthy to develop the project. "



This is where you lost me.


The difference between Kickstarter and traditionally funded games is that in a traditional funders are multi-million dollar publishers or glorified loan-sharks. Basically rich people. Kickstarter games are funded by "little people", lots of common people donating money to get a project going.


Neither means of funding a game qualifies it as particularly worthy of being developed.. Both can lead to crap games, both could hypothetically lead to great games.

Not much when it comes to action based MMO's.


Wildstar is probably the best out there, but it's still in beta.


Guild Wars 2 and Darkfall, in my opinion are really bad.




Oh,  and FIREFALL is in open beta, and it's a lot of fun, but they have disabled PvP so I haven't tried it yet, but it seems like it could be just the thing you're looking for.

MMO's are shit anymore. Seriously. Guild Wars 2 had a chance to be the big game changer but the lack of subscription I felt left too much community out of it. Elder Scrolls online might be good and Wildstar. But as for now and pvp I would suggest Mortal Online, or Dark Fall Unholy wars. Both indie Sandbox games. Mortal is clunky and buggy, and Darkfall had a community that hates the game they play.

Haven't played Mortal, but I was a big fanboy of Darkfall for a few years.. until it launched and I actually got to play.


Horrid, and one of the biggest scams in MMO history.


Avoid it - although their "relaunch" as "Unholy Wars" may be slightly better.

Trust me man, there isn't much out there.


I started with MMO's when Everquest released, but moved to WoW when it launched. That was pretty much the pinnacle of MMO gaming. Almost everything out there is trash.. Here are a few I will suggest that are playable, and even compare to what WoW had in it's glory days.


-Dark Age of Camelot: This game predates WoW by a few years, but graphics wise lags behind by a few decades. If you can get past that, this is actually a very enjoyable experience with some of the best PvP around. Granted, it's a little slower than WoW. You can't cast while moving (in most cases), melee attacks are more.. tactical, for lack of a better word, and there are very few quests in the game. You grind (or pvp like most) to level cap.

It's not free to play, but has a trial last I saw.

I play Midgard, not current installed though. I have a RR8~ Savage named Dulu.


-League of Legends: This really isn't an MMO at all, but it's listed as one on this site. It's addictive, and you do level from 1-30, but it's all matchmade games, it's not an open world or anything. It's the biggest competitive game in the history of online games. If you want PvP, this is where it's at.. currently.

My ID is Dulu MZ



Diablo 2: TWO, not THREE. Once again, not really an MMO, but a great online-RPG that WoW got a lot of ideas from.



If you need anyone to play with for any of these, just post your name once you make an account and I'll download em with you, I'm so bored of this genre.

entirely hypothetical indeed. Blizzard have pretty much pushed the engine as far as it can. Any change would be a full enhine overhaul and that is very costly and very labour intensive. They would have to spend pretty much ine entire expansion just to do that. And it would drive away a lot of old players with no sure way of getting new ones in.


As for it going F2P... I do not see that happen before they loose another 5-6 mil players.


Blizzard have a lot more to loose then gain by going F2P right now.



Dark Age of Camelot has to be down to like 20,000 players, if that, and it's still $15/month.

Yeah not sure what that guy's on about...


WoW's cash shop is strictly vanity.


As for returning.. Probably not unless they release a classic or BC server, or even a progression server.
