The Daily Grind: What MMO had the best player community in 2017?


It’s common wisdom among MMORPG players that player communities thrive in smaller games with lots of history, developer input, and social interaction. Games like Lord of the Rings Online always float to the top of discussions about where the best community truly is, especially when we’re turning off open chat and romanticizing specific social events.

But as we have repeatedly observed, games traditionally thought of as toxic also produce players capable of great generosity and exceptional kindness.

As we did last year, we’re going to try to get the measure of the different games’ communities right now. Forget about a year ago, five years ago, fifteen years ago; let’s talk about today, this year: Which MMORPG had the best community in 2017 – and why?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
