I am terrible at logging onto various forums and social media that aren't Twitter, I'm so sorryyy. T___T As you've probably noticed, I'm taking a break from ESO. FFXIV (and smaller single-player games) are taking up all my time lately. >w< BUT I MISS YOU GUYS.

Oh and ALSO! discordapp.com is this fancy new text/voice chat program (with Windows and OSX clients, Android and iOS apps, and a web client!) where people can set up "servers" with various chat rooms -- have you guys thought about setting one up? 100% free!

Heya @starspun good to have some news! Hope to see you back in any game you would fancy VERY soon!

Slowly working my way up to my first 30 Triple Triad cards (currently at 19). I almost want to yell at the NPCs I defeat several times in a row when they don't give me the card I want. ;(

How is FF:XIV doing these days? I haven't played in just under a year.

Pretty great, as far as I can tell! If you're interested in taking a look, they're having a free login campaign until the 9th :D

I'd have to reinstall, its tempting. Thanks for letting me know of the free log-in. =)

Just cancelled my WoW sub again. :( As much as I've had a blast while playing (despite having been leveling rather than actually getting to play with you guys!), I'm finding myself having a hard time juggling three MMOs and still having time to play some other games that I want to spend time with, so something had to go. I'm sorry! ;__; Oh, and @Cornilius, if you want the gold you gave me for heirlooms back, let me know! I have about 10 hours left before the account is closed. :P

So sad to see you leaving the wow guild for now, but you were a blast around, and dont worry about the heirloom money, i see it well spent and seeing u happy with them is great enough, hope u enjoy other mmos, and come back again! We still have u here so not going that far ;)

Dislike! I hope you'll be back some day and when you do, you'll be welcome as always :D

Really happy to see ESO's community band together and vote the game to first place in MMORPG.com's MMO face-off! I think all of the winners (the other two being Lord of the Rings Online and The Secret World) deserve this, as it speaks VOLUMES about their overall communities and how much they each care for their MMO of choice.

 

All three games I think are generally seen as "minor" or "failed" MMOs, but really, what makes an MMO great IS the general community, and I really believe these three have some of the best ones out there. That's not to say there's not great communities within other, bigger MMOs, but they're more self-contained than within the winning games, and are typically only guild-wide rather than game-wide.

I agree with you! It's not the number that make the success of a game. To see a dedicated, loyal, devoted community flourish is a sure sign than the game has succeeded to be a source of joy for their own fanbase.

I think it's also just that ESO has improved a lot and been focusing on change for the better as well as adding a lot of new content

I'm surprised to see Lord of the Rings Online on the list.

Not really been feeling the MMO genre the past week or so, so I just cancelled my ESO and WoW subscriptions. ;__; I have 4 and 6 days left of each respectively, and will at least try to pop on ESO for an hour or so in the evenings until it runs out on Sunday! D:

I fall into these slumps once in a while, but usually it's more because I want to play another MMO than what I'm currently playing. Not wanting to play an MMO at all is a really weird feeling and I hope it stops soon! Best of luck to those of you in the same predicament. ;)

This happens to me every spring/summer, I just don't feel like MMO's for a while. Usually after a month or two I'm back again though. ^^ Sometimes it's good to just relax with a single player game and/or do other things for a while.
