The MMO Bookclub devotes March to Tibia, Destiny 2, and Apex Legends

If you haven’t been hanging out with the folks at MMO Bookclub lately, you may have missed a shift in the format that’s expanded the club’s monthly scope. Instead of only visiting a community-voted MMO selection for that month, now the club divides its attention to three titles: an MMO, a PvP game, and a co-op title.

With the start of March tomorrow, the MMO Bookclub is going to be visiting the rather obscure and somewhat hardcore world of Tibia — but don’t fear, as volunteers have been working to pave the way to ease players into this game. And if you’re looking for a not-so-massively experience with the group, the co-op title for the month is Destiny 2 and the PvP game is Apex Legends. You can hook up with any of these crews by following these instructions.

After the break, we’ve got the full list of the MMO Bookclub’s monthly play cycles over the past two years.

  • Cycle 1, May/June 2017 – Lord of the Rings Online
  • Cycle 2, June/July 2017 – WildStar
  • Cycle 3, August 2017 – Elder Scrolls Online
  • Cycle 4, September 2017 – TERA

Hey Justin, thanks for giving us another shout out man. We always appreciate getting a nod in our direction, since it always inspires more good folks to check us out.

As Eboni mentioned, we have been expanding our scope over the last 4-5 months now. Officially, we rebranded ourselves as the Gaming Gnomads at the start of the year, but the community through a little bit of a riot and went back to the Bookclub moniker as The Gaming Bookclub at the start of February, and are no longer focused on solely MMOs but all multi-player games in general. As an example, we took the recent Deep Rock Galactic free weekend by storm.

We now have a surprisingly active table top community as a side interest group, usually with 2-4 games of various systems running at a time with weekly sessions. I am personally working on getting a DnD 5e campaign going soon, with new players preferred so any one looking to get their toes wet should look forward to that one.

Thanks again, Justin – and the rest of the MOP staff too! It’s always great to see our little group get some attention.

I joined the bookclub after MOP first covered them, but I just became pretty active recently. They have an actual book of the month discussion and several DnD/roleplaying games running now. I have a super short attention span when it comes to games, so it is great to always have someone to play with.

Tibia. Hey, may be fun.

Yes, I used to dislike Tibia before they protected their servers with battleye as like most old games bots were almost equal to the amount of legit players. After battleye I have yet to encounter a bot there and my visits to it were a lot more fun

I find Tibia to be an interesting game, if a grindy one.

Yes in its core its a loot-based one, but with a lot of depth. By the way, technically they had removed the level cap years ago too, which is unusual

Yeah, it feels like a old korean grinder, but with actual depth and a decent community, and a good manager behind it.

Yes in a way but artwork gives a nicer feel to me as well despite its age – artwork is a bit snes-like but with more medieval theme . Thinking that it got out like 1997 i cant help but wonder if the devs original goal was to make a mmo in diablo 1 but they didnt have the tech at that point. You can think it as mmoish diablo loot game without attack animations – sort of at least, with a bit imagination

One MMO out of three games, ouch lol.

They play a lot of other MMOs on the side, for example EVE, EQ2 and some continue playing FFXIV. It’s not a requirement to play the most voted game ;-)

MMO BookClub are pretty good bunch of people and fun to play with. I’d definitely recommend joining their community. Even if you don’t play their currently selected games – there are many people who play various games at all times.

Ohh, Kraken is promoting Book Club again! ;-)

Seriously, though, they’re a good bunch of people and everybody should check them out to play games together.

For such an old game, Tibia is a simple and fun game. Also it always surprised that I never found any bug on it which suggests that bug squashing is important to them. The game is basically using a freemium model where you can basically play as free but lose on extra spells, areas of map and promotion, however the subscription is below 10 euros so I had always found it fair

Yes, Tibia is a fun game.
