On the MOP podcast a few weeks back, Justin and I chatted briefly about playing MMOs all wrong, and not really caring what anyone thinks about it. These are the kinds of players who go into a themepark combat-centric leveling MMORPG and spend all their time in town roleplaying. These are the people in PvP gankboxes who focus on cosmetic outfits. These are the folks in games with terrible crafting systems who nevertheless stand in front of the auction hall panel all day long. These are gamers who spend more time modding their UIs than actually playing the game, the people who roll pure Fishermen in raiding games, the dearhearts who stay homeless in a game all about housing.
I love these people, for the record. I love the idea that we can carve out our own fun in any MMO, regardless of what the devs design.
What MMOs do you play “wrong,” or more accurately, in a way that most other players would find really weird?
