While some MMOs only offer you a single standard beginning zone from which to launch your legend, there are plenty that give players a choice. After all, you want to hook players in those first few hours, so why not present a buffet of starting areas to meet all personality types?
With those MMOs that do offer starting zone choice, it’s not uncommon for us to settle on favorites — and begin to avoid the alternatives like the plague. In RIFT, for example, I would always roll Guardian to venture around Silverwood because I disliked the blah-ness of the Defiants’ Freemarch so much.
What about you? Are there MMO starting zones that you always avoid on principle?
