My first MMO was WoW, but I got bored of it quickly, only played till level 25 or so. Then I tired many more MMO's and got bored, mainly because they were tap target games and I hated them right away.

The first MMO that I got max level on (still the only one) is DC Universe, I found it a lot of fun, but after max level I didn't really see a reason to play. A friend of mine went in and played recently for a while and then exited it. We were lost on a few things.

I'm now playing Neverwinter and I'm enjoying it a lot, I like the different quests and the fighting on it. I also like Path of Exile and Warframe, both are fun games. I also played the beta for Defiance which was a lot of fun. I can't at the moment afford to buy and sub the game so I'll wait a bit...the show is really good too. It would be nice if they went F2P. I'm looking forward to Elder Scrolls Online. I'm hearing good things about it, and also some people worries, we'll see what happens.

Sup? Haven't been here in a while. Things seem...different now. Anyway, the one thing that brought me back is the ridiculous debate of what a MOBA is. You got to admit, the acronym is a little broad. So I propose a new term: Tower Defense Battle Arena (TDBA, for short). Because basically that's what it is...wreck another dude's house on the other side of an enclosed area. But gamers are creatures of habit and I think my suggestion wouldn't fly. Just my two cents.

Also, welcome Jason :)

My first mmo was Ragnarok Online, not RO2(that things crap). It is by far the best mmo I have ever played in my life and since then I've played hundreds of mmo and nothing is even close to RO. I think I'm gonna get back to playing it again maybe.

Thanks Spunkify, I wasn't expecting for you to read what I have said. Its go to know that you care about the gaming community.

For the QOTW I have to say Dust 514 actually. I have played it in a beta and it wasn't easy to play, I mean with that : No tutorials, No backstory and such but the most was when I played it. the only thing I did was dying only snipers and such also high recoil and the tanks were just something that you could own and win the game with.
Now it is small maps (no snipers), really fun, and the recoil has been reduced to the BF3 or COD style so not that much. And no tanks! The only problem is when I try to revive someone they respawn... GODDAMN SPAWN TIMES!!!! xD

Also again glad to be back in this community since like forever!

whichever comes out first and is ftp (and obviously not pants) between camelot unchained and elder scrolls is gonna pinch most of the GW2 WvW community, every patch messes up something else, they very rarely fix instead nerf or add stuff to try cover over the underlining problems

regards the show - better to try have atleast 2 guests each time to give a better spread of thoughts / feelings

I probably have been away for like 40 episodes of these! I am so glad I am back! Also I have missed the entrance of the blonde girl of the MMOWeekly and the departure of Magicman! The only thing I remember was when Spunkify came to MMOBomb!

But that aside as I said I am back! So for the question my first MMO was... Tibia I think or was it Runescape? I don't know but the one that did take hours of my life it was Tibia.

Well I think that was it...

My first MMORPG was World of Warcraft. I was at my best friend's house, and he was playing the 7-day free trial they used to have. So, I played it, and I fell in love with it and MMORPGs instantly. For a short time, it was the best game I have ever played! I ended up getting like 10 7-day free trials under different emails just so I could play more, lol. I'm so glad that it introduced me to the MMORPG genre, and it will always have a special place in my heart.

Jason isn't very informative and doesn't sound too excited about anything. Give him a 5-Hour next time. He just seemed like a Debbie-Downer.

Great show Free 2 Play Cast, even though its very late coming. My first mmo was a weird one. It was Phantasy Star Universe on the Xbox 360. My friend Supamidget117 and I played the beta and decided to get it. We were hooked. We moved on to computer mmos. We have played almost every mmo out there in the past 6 years. My current one is NeverWinter and I'm loving it.

First MMO ? guess that would be Guild Wars 2 and RF online , played both at the same time but i did played RF on a Private server on wich i stayed untill a few weeks ago for like 5-6 years , untill Gamecampus came around and forced the owners to close the server since the server clearly had better ideas and stuff than there own server , they now use that Cooked Pistol update wich isn't RF anymore , its something else now but not RF online .

Anyways Have a nice day guys !
