All hail Dungeons and Dragons Online, which is now being inducted into the MMO 10 Years Club! To celebrate a decade of the game’s operation, Turbine is turning on the spigot for several bonuses over the next week.

Through Sunday, players can enjoy 30% additional guild renown, increased, +1 loot, and extra mysterious remnants. Additionally, the studio is activating several of its past events, including the Risa Ice Games and Treasure of Crystal Cove. Those bonus events will last until March 3rd.

If that’s not all, DDO is planning on rolling out Update 30 on Leap Day with the Gnome race, a gift for anyone who logs in, and a special 10th anniversary event.

I always wanted to like this game more than I did. I never, ever hated it … it just never seemed to keep me playing, for some inexplicable reason.

I must be the exception, though, because 10 years later, it’s still chugging along. Gratz to its fans!

Styopa Which is weird because MMOs had been f2p before it, and b2p too. DDO started the avalanche, though.

I think it’s worth mentioning too that it’s not “just” ten years old.

This is THE GAME that – singlehandedly, really – made free-to-play a viable economic model.  That success probably kept some games alive that likely would have otherwise died; I’m thinking TSW for sure, likely AoC, and perhaps even LotRO as some examples.

You can say it is a good or bad thing, but that’s an ASTONISHINGLY big deal, a seismic shift in how every MMO approached the economics of the game that had heretofore really only been monthly-sub based.

Cordovan just said servers are back on.  So glad they put Crystal Cove up, so need those Swashbuckling items and eternal rum flasks. Also DDO begins by cleaning house for best online fantasy game. due to the most awesome community. http://www.mmogames.com/topmmos/best-online-fantasy-game/
