    Default Hopping between MMO's

    Do you do it?
    I do it all the time and I don't know why.
    At first I was
    going to try out Neverwinter with a group of ONRPGERs, then I've changed to playing Fiesta Online and even made a huge love thread here about it.. PFFFFFFT.
    It's like.. "Oh my gosh, I'm so inlove with Fiesta" and now it's "Screw Fiesta, it's drama in the couple of academies I've been and was sucking the life out my pocket taking money"
    Yes, I said I don't know why I hop a lot, but maybe there is one reason why.. I'm really impatiently waiting on FFXIV: A Realm Reborn and just really want to play it cause I'm an FF Fan and know it will be my dream MMO.
    Another reason could be, my mind is telling me to just stay away when I get near drama showing up. (Definitely Fiesta Online, a drama game)

    Now, as you see on my signature.. I'm playing 3 games now. Those 3 are holding my interest at the moment.. especially TERA. I see a future with TERA (Hopefully I don't hop this one). I can sorta see staying in this Flyff game for awhile because of the bustling community that they have here and all the welcomes I've got and even a new friend. And DCUO is there because playing a superhero is pretty cool. We'll see if I stick to these 3 games or not.

    Am I the only one who's hopped around a bunch of MMORPGs within months?
    I might have even played the same ones a couple of times sparking an interest before moving along in a couple days!

    I just really cannot wait until FFXIV:ARR is out.

    I'm also thinking about playing more MMO's that are coming out soon as well.

    You will 100% hop tera, prepare for something else.
    Or read a good book.
    Or watch animes.
    Or lay lazy on the ground.

    How will I 100% hop TERA?
    Do you dislike the game that much?
    People have different tastes and standards, maybe you really hated the game yet I'm really interested in it now.

    99% of the people on this site hop games. That's why we're here, to see what the next best thing to hop to is.

    I usually hop and try out new MMOs.. it's totally normal.. we have PC and Internet..
    in my case.. that's RO2 for now

    but I'm always keeping 2 games with me.. they weren't hyped but these two games know my ticklish side:
    Dragon Saga & Grand Chase

    The bashing* part is what I hate on any mmo community (forum sites)
    if GAME X isn't for them, they feel the need that it should be also be the 'perspective' of other players about that game,..
    and keeps on whining like little girls..

    I'm sticking to Entropia and League of Legends.

    Maybe I am getting old... But if you want to be a progamer you have to choose a mainstream MMO.

    Resolute discussion is different from whining, I've never seen you 'post whine'.. well.. about games..

    and now I am whining about whiners ;__;

    I am the 1%

    started playing Entropia Universe 5yrs ago and still playing it 5+hrs a day, never saw the point in trying another when I enjoy this one so much.

    most players of mmos hop these days because they have not thought about what they really want out of their time in an mmo. any player who says they want new content and gfx will hop after 2 years.

    back when WoW, neverwinter nights and SWG came out, everyone knew what they wanted: a highly detailed immersive world, full of adventure, where you determined your own future. Not a single mmo released since then has met their criteria. (i cant think of any). so now, most players don't know what they want.

    once u figure out what you want, you will recognise it when you find it.
    Be warned - I am a major player of Regnum Online the mmo. I've been playing it for about 2 years and rarely go without logging in at least once a day. You can also look at good alternatives to Regnum such ase Aion online and Aika Online.

    im an extreme mmo hopper i guess.... iv pretty much tried every mm on the market (except muds) til about 2007 when i hit the computer capabilty wall and had to settle for a more constrained share of the market(which iv caught up with by now since i sport an i7 with GTX660Ti now)
    the reason why i mostly hop is that many new mmos appear and i want to try them out.... the reason why i abandon games i actually like is the grind/solo wall - meaning you come to a point where a single level takes days to acquire or in some games where you cant proceed since you do not have the gear and you will have to grind below your level to get the neccessary gear to take on stuff on your own level (mostly since the crap aint sold or is non tradeable as it is the case with AO)

    i do also hop between mmo just like now i am currently playing
    Rohan blood feud for almost a year and then months ago i started
    playing RO2 and then when a friend gave me Tera i also tried it and
    then someone introduced Dragon Nest and I tried it too i think it's just
    normal since even though we are already enjoying a game there are
    still times that we get bored and wanted something new

    The only time I dont hop MMOs is if I find someone to stick to a game with me. But that's like.. mission impossible.
    Relax and enjoy life

    I used to hop between all of the genres until I found a genre I sucked-at and stuck with it!
    I started with text-based strategy > 2D shooter > 2D RPG > 3D RPG > 2D strategy > text-based RPG > cardgame > MOBA > Action RPG > MOBA > Action RPG > MOBA > Action RPG > MOBA
    ... Can you guess where this is going..? Each of those represents a 6-month period of only playing games in that genre.

    well, Tera community is dwindling. Flyff and RO2 on the other hand has lots of players. i've been juggling between playing Ragnarok Online 2 and Flyff for the past week. i am having fun on both games are fun i can't decide which one i should stick to.

    I will forever be hopping games until a Lineage 3 releases.
    I'd still be playing Lineage 2 if it didn't get way too old after more than 5 years of playing it.
