I’m a partisan on this one: I have never been in an MMORPG with a better community than Lord of the Rings Online’s.
A couple of the rogue servers I play, like City of Heroes Homecoming and SWG Legends, come pretty damn close, so I suspect there’s something to the theory that older games tend to collect more community-minded players, or rather, that the folks who weren’t that invested in homesteading long since moved on. But among live MMOs, LOTRO’s is still the most comfy by far.
But of course, I suspect a lot of you are going to suggest the crown might belong to another MMORPG, and I want to hear about these places where I could be spending my time! Which MMO has the best player community as of 2021?
