Default What is your Favorite iOS MMO?

Hi i'm new to to these forums and also kinda new to the iOS game scene.I'm interested in any opinion or preference on a MMORPG without an overbearing monetization in place.

Thanks for your recommendation!

Cheers!

Welcome to the forum! If you're interested in a more traditional MMORPG, I'd highly recommend Order & Chaos Online just as illmerica posted. It's basically a WOW clone. They used to even charge monthly for a subscription which is no longer there.

The only other MMORPG that is an actual MMORPG would be The World of Magic. It's a bit more simple as far as graphics, but it's very similar to an old school MMO's with the grinding and all.

EDIT: I've heard good things about Celtic Heroes which seems to be more a traditional MMORPG.

There are some others that are fun to play on the mobile platform, but they are a bit different than a traditional MMO. One developer that specializes in MMO's is Spacetime Studios. You should check out Arcane Legends and/or Dark Legends if you check them out.

As far as I know, none of the above games are too intrusive with IAP or don't require them.

Hands down Order & Chaos. If you got the device to run it, go get it. Luckily, I go it free through IGN's free app of the month promo code, but after playing it I wouldn't mind paying a $1 for it right now.

If you have any other device. You should check out IMO: The World Of Magic, Graal online or Arcane Legend. I tried all of them, but The World Of Magic was to my only taste. I don't play The World Of Magic anymore, but from time to time when my iPad runs out of battery, I would bust out my iPod Touch 2G and play it.

I used to play graal before GT was released, it only kept me entertained for maybe 2-3 months..it doesn't change much..not many updates and the graphics are a bit amateur..
Growtopia gets updates bi-weekly ..everything is obtainable for free,great community, great devs, I couldn't praise it more.
Played for almost a year now and still going strong.. The Updates keep it exciting..

At one stage i was playing Order & Chaos soooooo much i just had to stop ! Very addictive ! I was simply not playing any of my other apps!

Tons of quests, they keep adding content, you dont have to buy any IAP's, just a massive massive world to explore. An amazing game

No doubt gt is a great game, i played it for a long time when it was released but im just talking about the social aspect.Anyone who has played both can see the diffrence,and of course the graphics look amateur on graal haha. You do realize that the gfx teams consists of players in there early teens. As for the updates, i can only talk about graal classic, becuase each graal is run diffrently.As a ex-administrator for classic, i can tell you the updates for it are slow becuase theres a single person making them, and the updates are in a far greater size than gt has ever had.
