What Makes an MMO Community?

When it comes to gaming communities, few are quite as interesting or unique as those belonging to the Massive Multiplayer Online (MMO) genre. While the details of human interactions alter depending upon which game you are playing, the fundamental feelings remain. Although difficult to describe, we’ve always found this to be a mixture of cautious altruism, sociable anonymity and kind wariness, all within the bubble of an invested and yet care-free air. Here, we’ll be taking a look at why this is and what makes the MMO community so unique.

Summer Festivities

Rift has Summerfest going in fulls wing, it crept up on me this year. I didn't know when it was heading to us and then it was here. Also there is another event running, Grim Remembrance. Lots to do with these two events. Tons of neat stuff for my decorating obsession, pics in the next post. Lots and lots of cool stuff to collect this year. I've been playing Rift and LoTRO doing events and collecting stuff. Summertime is fluff heaven for me this year.

Celebrations & Festivals

Lots of events going on as summer heats up. Last week EQ2 had another new celebration release, which was the Scorched Sky Celebration. LoTRO is having the Summer Festival return and then come back in a few weeks for an encore. Neverwinter has the Summer Festival event going as well, I haven't had a chance to try that again this year but I saw a new snail mount that looked pretty sweet. I haven't really noticed much else that has caught my eye, Wildstar is having some double xp currently as well as the upcoming residential renovation

Traveling through Hyboria

Some shots from AoC, traveling through the lands on my Necromancer who is now in her 30's. I've been gone long enough that it is a learning experience all over again in many ways. The game is still modern enough to jump in and get back into things without feeling overwhelmed.

Not As Planned

Things did not pan out in DAoC. If you read my last post, you'll remember that I was quite enjoying the game, the questing, the interesting classes. I did try to sub to continue playing, I had gotten into my 30's with a Bonedancer, but I couldn't get the game to take my card. So, that's that. I may try again down the road. Dire decided he wanted to play something too, and while it did not end up being Dark Age of Camelot, he was considering going back to Age of Conan. He didn't actually play AoC, but I ended up going back. Who knows maybe he will too.
