We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

i havent played it and wont play it but ill say this. If its just a coop thing then its not an mmo. If its a massively multiplayer game in a persistent world then its an mmo. As far as i know its an action rpg like diablo with multiplayer loby like vindictus. If that is the case then it is not an mmo.

That is exactly what it is.  Its a Diablo, Torchlight, Path of Exile clone.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

This.  Therefore the game is an MMO.

An mmo is a multiplayer video game which is capable of supporting large numbers of players simultaneously.

Some games that are online with only 4 players at the same still call themselves mmos. . Technically it has to be a persistent world with many players, but as you know many games just billed themselves as mmos and many just call starting all online multiplayer games and the like as mmos.

 

Online Action Role Playing Games might be the correct term, but really the most important thing is whether the game is worth playing or not. History has shown us that it will probably not be that great, but at least average to above average vs the thousands of other F2P games out there.

We are still at this?

Does it matter? If it is fun, great. If not, skip. Whether it is a mmo, or a online ARPG is pretty much irrelevant.

Get used to it, homie. The is a website called M M O R P G .com. You may not give two shits about genres, but clearly some of us do as this site known as M M O R P G .com is quite popular. If it bothers you to such a degree, find another website that covers a broader spectrum of video games. Yeah they do a bit here and there on out of genre titles that may interest those who us who are into M M O R P Gs, but ultimately this is a site that deals with M M O R P Gs.

Really? I saw D3, LoL, WoT and quite a few non-MMO supported here with their own forums.

Plus, you think everyone here just play "true" MMORPGs?

A massively multiplayer online game (also called MMO and MMOG) is a multiplayer video game which is capable of supporting large numbers of players simultaneously. By necessity, they are played on the Internet. Many games have at least one persistent world, however others just have large numbers of players competing at once in one form or another without any lasting effect to the world at all.

And i care about a definition, instead of whether a game is fun, because?

well...homie...

The game is a mmoArpg. Now you may have a total narrow view of what belongs on the site but the people who actually decide things here don't seem to share it.

It is Massively Multiplayer and it is an aRPG - its a blend of both - and a very good one at that.

I gave up long ago trying to figure out the logic behind why MMORPG.com will or will not put a game on this site.  The best I can gather the games that people ask to be added get added.

There is a long list of games that probably don't meet the traditional MMO description including some that are marketed as such.  At least Marvel Heroes isn't pretending to be a MMO, at least I have never heard someone at the company call it that.
