Leaderboard: What was the best new MMO of 2015?

    
106

Yesterday, we announced our award for MMO of the Year — it went to Final Fantasy XIV. But we deliberately expanded the category to include MMOs that launched before 2015, primarily in the hopes of avoiding a repeat of our 2014 “nothing” vote, which was depressing.

So what about just the new games of 2015? Which one is the best if we whittle it down to only those MMOs that actually launched — either fully or into a paid early access or endless open beta version — in 2015?

You can help us answer that question in today’s Leaderboard poll below.

Hmm… Star Wars Galaxies Emu… 

I thought Everquest next might deliver but idk anymore. 

They should just remake SWG with everything the same as at release with just way better graphics. It would crush every game out there. Its sad to think after the SWG peak and WoW’s early Vanilla & TBC period MMORPG’s have decayed so much.

deekay_zero Robert80  Yeah, but then I would HAVE to vote for one of the other two.  I’m willing to sin a little to avoid that!  :P

I would’ve voted for Nothing. I was really hoping for something new and awesome this year since nothing’s really pushing my buttons at the moment. Here’s hoping for next year.

I’ll go with World of Warships, because it’s a lot of fun, deep and getting deeper, and Wargaming pulled off something that was considered to be somewhat impossible, i.e., a really compelling and fun warships game.   They did a great job, and I play it several times a week.   The sinking animations alone make the game worth playing, they are just amazing to watch.

CloakingDonkey  “a decent year for already released ones.” Critically, I would agree. Financially, this seems like the worst year for MMOs, ever. Lost 3.5-4.5 million sub equivalents.   WoW will be down at least 4.5 million subs.  My guess is the non-WoW MMOs were pretty flat.  Saying all the non-WoW MMOs grew a million would seem to be very optimistic.  So net loss of 3.5 to 4.5 m players. I don’t think a year prior to ’15 had that kind of drop. Ergo …

32 players is not massive. Seriously super disspaointed in this site. You guys seem to be losing more and more grip on what you claim to cover.

Wow…didn’t realize how weak of a year it was for new MMOs until seeing the choices.
