View Full Version : What, out of the two MMOs, should I play?

09-02-2012, 08:24 PM
This question is to the infinite RPS Hivemind. I have access to two MMO products, Eve Online (http://www.eveonline.com) and Star Wars: The Old Republic (http://www.swtor.com/), and I've spent 1 gameplay day in Star Wars and I have about a two year old toon in Eve Online. I enjoy both games thoroughly but I've come to a problem. I cannot afford more than one subcription and nor do I have the time to play both.

So I have come to the Hivemind's infinite wisdom and ask this: Which one should I go for?

I have no idea what playstyle you prefer, as those two are wildly different.

Spend more time with Star Wars at first, see if it keeps grabbing you, if the early romance disappears cancel the sub and move back to EVE?

So, you've played both of them, but don't remember which one you liked more?

What's going on here? Are those two your only options? Does it have to be a scifi MMO? Try Tera Online when open beta comes. The battle system is nice in Tera. Then there is Guild Wars 2 coming too and Secret World and... Too many mmos. I'm le very tired so I wont bother going into details about them. Do as Flint said and play more SWTOR and if it doesnt click you then play EVE.

These two are really my only options. I've also enjoyed both of them equally, and that's the problem. The thing is I only get the chance to play games during the weekend, and I feel the skill system in Eve Online fits my current playtime as I don't have the time to play Star Wars during the week to progress, as it were.

Star Trek Online

Have and played when it came out. Kinda glad I dropped it, and even as a F2P game I'd rather play something else.

It has supposedly been improved a lot, and it being F2P wouldn't hurt. I am considering trying it myself, but I still have games from the 2010 December sale that I haven't played.

I would give Star Trek a 2nd try.

Why are you confined to those 2 choices?

Also if EVE is your thing, give Perpetuum Online the 2 week trial.

I'll do that, 'cause Eve is my thing. I like the progression through real time because I don't have the time during the week to play games :P

I played star wars, but the endgame is shallow, easy, small and repetitive. If that scares you off, go play Eve.

i vote for stay the hell away from MMOs

Play SW:TOR first, from what I read/seen you'll end up getting fed up with it quicker, and then switch to Eve.

Thank you for the suggestion guys. I'll stick to Star Wars for another month or so and then go back to Eve. Much appreciated!
