so many good suggestion, now i'm just worry that some of the games might fry my laptop.
SWTOR and Tera are the only mmorpgs worth playing beside GW2.
is Tera f2p?
You might wanna check out RaiderZ which is like Tera light (and Tera is already pretty light so I guess ultra light is more like it). It's simplistic in a lot of ways but it features the more "action" type combat (no tab targetting, more like FPS style with a tarteting reticule and needing to connect attacks, more dodging than in GW2). The best thing about Tera is the combat and RaiderZ has almost the exact same combat in a F2P, and it's a Perfect World game so the F2P angle isn't too idiotic. If you do try this the first 10 levels or so are tutorialesque and very simple, so don't let that throw you too much.
The tab target stand and whack combat of classic MMORPGs feels really weak once you try the action style, IMO. GW2 is somewhere in between - tab target with some action elements - it's kind of a hybrid between the two styles and itself is a lot better than the classic style.
I think Forge just came out - it's touted as MMORPG PvP without the PvE (interesting idea IMO since I think there are a lot of players that want that). I'm not that much of a PvPer so I haven't checked it out but the graphics for it look pretty nice and it sounds well designed.
PlanetSide2 is also recently released, F2P, online FPS, with some crazy looking depth and scale (2000 person per server PvP on huge maps with epic sized battles). I've DLed it and watched some tutorials but again, I'm not much of a PvPers. Steam's black friday sale lead to numerous game purchases so I'm overloaded right now.
I'm most interested in Neverwinter for upcoming MMORPGs (action combat with more somewhat more typical class roles, Perfect World, D&D themed) and even though I can't stand most Bethesda games I'm keeping an eye on Elder Scrolls online (lots of potential) but both of those games won't be out for quite a while. Seems to be a common theme in MMORPGs - the next big thing is always an eternity away.
I looked at Raiderz and i might try that out! I searched for Forge but somehow i can't find the link to the official website. :S
Sounds like Planetside 2 is the game for you, my friend. The mass PVP is a billion times better with more depth and more action than GW2's.
Can you give me a bit more information on that? like PVP game mode, learning curve...I must say I've never really play a fps game...at least in a hardcore way
Fun browser FPS, easy to get in.
Don't let the browser part fool you.
You might just find me a game that i can play in class LOL other than omgpop
LoL is very fun game, as a beginner I advice turning all chat off though.
It's very polished, the free champion rotate so you always have a different choice, after a few matches you'll be able to buy your own first champion.
I would certainly recommend it!
Downloaded and tried it yesterday night
, still trying to get a hang of it
