All the free MMORPGs I have found
« on: April 04, 2005, 02:43:49 pm »
I have found 2 good free MMOs on the internet they are

1. Runescape.com-- Can give you many hours of lvling a ton of skills. But after you reach lvl 60-70 you wont have much to do without becomeing a member ($5 a month) All skills go up too lvl 99 A very large community

2. http://www.conqueronline.com/index.html-- A much less known game that has a lot of fun activities. Including giuld wars. It can be challenging to find a good download. ( I found one that took 15 min but some could have taken 34 hours)  Once you get past that hurtle it is alot of fun. You can play up too lvl 130, but at lvl 115 you have the option too become "reborn" in witch you can start at lvl 1 with new more powerful skills


Im not playing runescape anymore but you can find me on the triumph server in conqueronline. My name on both accounts is bwl2

Want to try a crazy free MMORPG? Have you ever tried The Kingdom of Loathing? It looks really simple, but keep at it, the game is a lot deeper than it looks.

Well, depending on who you ask, it could have two meaning:
Multi
User
Domain

or
Multi
User
Dungeon

Basically, its a text-based MMORPG, that vary wildly in the way the game is played and can be anywhere from a roleplaying ST game to a level, class, ability based DnD game! anything is possible with hundreds of different games to choose from, some with an average of 10 or less on at a time, some with hundreds on at any given moment.
The Sky's the limit. ;D

Achaea is a fun (and deep!) MUD.  Look at the Features page for more information.

As Steve said, KoL is pretty involving as well.  It's a funny RPG, which is quite refreshing.

Anarchy Online has a free version you can download and play. I didn't really care for it all that much, though.

Kingdom of Loathing was very good for a while, but I got a little tired of it. The humor is very good, and it's very much like my own style.

Planeshift is a free MMORPG, it sounds pretty promising.

Sadly my old Comp has probs running it.

Yeah, the pacing of the game could be better. It seems to take just a little bit too long for new areas and monsters to open up to you. If it went a bit faster I think it would make the game a better experience.

But I usually play it for a few days, get bored, stop playing, and then play again a few weeks later. It plays well like that. It's at least worth a try.

Thats what I do. But thats also the reason I avoid paying monthly fees if I can get a game thats almost as good.

By the way, is playing a private server of a pay to play game ilegle? Becuase I have been playing one for Lineage II, and I hope Im not breaking any laws...

The other reason I play free 2 play is becuase Lineage II has a horible lvl grind and the free server makes it literaly 10x easyer to gain exp. (which needly to say still makes the grind bad at higher lvls)

Umm I'm not sure Kingdom of Loathing counts as an MMORPG, since I don't think you actually ever PLAY with other people. But I didn't last 5 minutes so maybe I'm missing something. Pretty funny though. I might spend more time on it if I was stuck at a job where the internet was my only form of entertainment. I remember playing something a lot like it when I did tech support in call center. It does seem to have quite a bit of variation and little things like that to keep it interesting.

There's also Shattered Galaxy. It's been free for a while now (since 2003) and provides free online fun if you can download the 170 mb client. They have free accounts and monthly pay account with a few perks. I think it's worth a look at sgalaxy.com.

I tried FoM but it was too overwhelming having to deal with MINING to get money, I couldn't figure it out and there was NO ONE around. Too time consuming for me, I'll stick to Battlefield 1942 thank you. All action no downtime. Although it did seem to have potential, I liked the MOST WANTED list, that would be cool to just murder everyone.

Playing FoM- it's an awesome game, but only for a pretty specific audience. Most of the players online are very mature, and helpful.
Give it some time until you figure out what's going on. Talk in Faction Chat and ask for help to do this the fastest.

If you see "pinstar" on an online game, 99% of the time it is me. I also use this exact name and avatar in other gaming forums.

There's also Shattered Galaxy. It's been free for a while now (since 2003) and provides free online fun if you can download the 170 mb client. They have free accounts and monthly pay account with a few perks. I think it's worth a look at sgalaxy.com.

I was one of the beta testers for it. I kinda stopped when it stopped being truly free, but it was fun while it lasted. I always hated how one of the factions always owned the crater due to the fact that it took them the shortest time to walk from their capital to the battlefield at the crater...allowing them to reinforce faster.

Ahh well.

I'm in the LED: My name is Michal Roffmen.

  I also downloaded FoM. Pretty good game although I do have a few issues with it.
   First and foremost, the start of the game is by no means user friendly. By this I mean you start with very limited cash, and once you complete a mission, rather than being awarded money right away, you wait up to 5-7 days to get paid. In the meantime, you're getting killed left and right by, in many cases, the same faction you're in. So finaly you get paid and you start by armor. Once again you get ganked and all your armor is gone.
  Secondly, say I join a mission. Many of these are about an hour long, more or less. So lets say you're guarding the prison. The entire time you will be standing around a beam of light which teleports people in. Now I played for about 7 days for about 5 hours a day. The entire time I played, the prison was raided twice. Maybe I've been spoiled by games that dive right into the action, that let me start shooting the bad guys right away. But for 35 hours of game time, I saw two pieces of heavy action, which, being, poorly-equiped, I was killed in.
  There are a few other menial issues I have with the game, not game stopping, but all that could break the camel's back. As with most MMOs, newbs are rampant, consistently bothersome. Deleting a character or dying permanently leads means you can't create another for 24 hours. Also, although many may enjoy RPing, its just not my bag, so this game is definatly not for power gamers like myself.
