    "Although I'm not not the biggest WoW player around, it is easily the best MMORPG out there. It has created such an immense universe to play in, it is a world unto itself."

    "In the past couple of years, I have become obsessed with MMORPGs. This had led me to trying out as many MMORPGs as possible in search of the finding the best game ever. After reading a review on League of Legends and then trying it out, I would have to say it’s the best MMORPG I have played yet. "

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that a World of Warcraft server reached a login queue of almost 10,000 players? 25 years after the World of Warcraft's launch, Blizzard Entertainment released a classic version of what is regarded as one of the best MMORPGs. First announced at BlizzCon 2017, the new server option will recreate the game even before its first expansion - Burning Crusade. Fast forward to over one week before the server's launching. Blizzard started to open the game for in-game name reservations. Since then, things start to get a little too exciting for fans.

Are 10,000 players too much for a WoW server? Unfortunately, yes. Kaivax, the game's community manager has released an overcrowded realm update on August 17, 2019. It says that the Herod realm of the World of Warcraft Classic server is looking to be "massively overpopulated". Kaivax also said in the statement that Blizzard eyes login queues exceeding 10,000 players if players won't consider to the Stalagg realm. Being one of the first successful MMOs in the world, WoW has become the inspiration of some of the online multiplayer games. There had also been private servers of the game that has different features than the original WoW servers. Contrary to what has become the argument of critics and players, MMORPG games are not dead yet. The genre is continuously growing and looks forward to more games from developers.

    "I've always loved Final Fantasy and this game is no different. I've put 100+ hours into FFXIV and plan on playing many more. However, it really frustrates me that the game could be sooo much better. A few minor tweaks to the character system, better quests, and some fixes to glaring bugs/glitches would make this a truly perfect game. "

    "I like how you can play "solo" or with other players. It lists the release date as 9-25-08, what updates have been made since them? There are no subscription fees once you buy the game which is good. From what I understand this games combines Guild Wars, Fractions, and Nightfall into one game. The graphics look real good, also the similar games that they sell look like they are worth looking into. "

    "I tried to like T4C, but even disregarding it calling me a punk, it rubbed me wrong. I think the biggest flaw for me is the graphics; they're almost Diablo I era looking. An equivalent game from the time, M59, looks better, even though it beat T4C to the mmorpg market by a couple of years. There's just nothing to really draw me in, especially given WoW and the like exist."

As I progress through the lands, trying to defeat each of the seven existing other rulers, I go through great graphics and terrains, bursting my enemies into flames and move forward with my minions to ultimately gain control of the entire territory.

    "Monster MMORPG is a great concept and it runs fine, but I didn't enjoy it that much. It plays much like Pokemon, but it just doesn't feel right having to memorize and work with all the different "monsters" since the MMO aspect isn't really anything special. It feels like a cheap clone. I would just stick to Pokemon and have online battles through the 3DS."

    "This was an awesome game when it came out years ago. But times have changed and it's showing its age. The graphics could really use a tune-up, and they distract from the fun. Also, fewer and fewer people are using it, which can be tedious. And there is a big difference between the free and paid versions. Still, there are lots of different worlds and adventures available, and it is not boring at all. "
