Playing MMO games without spending money!

MMO

The trend I keep seeing and hearing about from my friends is that a lot of people are playing the Free to Play MMO’s without spending a dime.

Just don’t have the money to pay!

With economy and the way it is I know a lot of people just don’t have the “kicking around cash” that they used to. So maybe there are some people who fall into this category, just not being able to pay for their MMO gaming.

I would have been this gamer in college, but sadly there wasn’t many free to play games back then.

Don’t think the MMO game is worth paying for!

I know there are a lot of people who say these MMO games just are not worth paying for anymore. With the free to play onslaught we have a lot more casual playing going on and an all-out lack of community in some of these games. That seems to lead a lot of people to say these are not worth paying for anymore.

Like a challenge!

Then there are people like me who remember the older games and how they were harder to finish. So playing a free to play game with spending money surly makes the game harder, how much harder is up to the developers.

Don’t like a challenge or paying a MMO sub!

As some us like our MMO games hard, there will be a group that like their game easier. So there will always be people paying for the perks and the easier route in-game. Not that this is bad, we need to support the thing we like or nothing new will come out.

There are still a few subscription based games out there and I know there are some dedicated people playing these games and I no problem with these games if they are supported properly by the development teams. Currently I don’t play any of these, just because I can’t find one that interests me.

 

So today I ask you, do you play MMO’s without spending any money!

    I will play a FTP MMO, generally to try it out. If I know that I am gonna play it for a while, or just fall in love with it, I will spend money in the item shop to help support the devs.

    Same here Billy, but right now I’m finding very few MMO’s that can hold my attention. Although I play a lot of GW2.

    I’ve played both Atlantica and a Star Trek one. Atlantica was pretty good/addicting.

    I just don’t find many MMOs worth paying for. If one is that good, I will pay for it though. For example, Borderlands 2 is awesome, although not your typical MMO.

    I hear ya Kenny, there are a few I play but its more of a casual gameplay mode for me. GW2 is the only thing I really serious about because I have a lot of friends playing

    Back when I played MMOs they all had subscriptions. I don’t mind paying a fee if the game is good. Heck with Dark Age of Camelot I would pay for two accounts as having a buffbot was mandatory if you wanted to do well in PVP.

    I’ve got no problem paying for stuff in a F2P MMO (or any F2P game) if I like it, but I absolutely refuse to ever pay a subscription to play a game. It’s just not happening.

    Generally though, I’ll play MMO’s without spending any money, but that’s more or less because I haven’t really found one that has held my attention for more than a couple of weeks.

    Its been hard to have an MMO that has kept my attention for more than a couple weeks also.
