Which MMORPG will be the game to play?

I''ll take OTHER for 500 Alex

Jumpgate is not a game; it IS a way of life...

How many other games can you play where you have....In no certain order

Manlove, Furry references, ""Charlie Murphy"", Actual online radio stations devoted to it, no less than 5 websites made specifically for it, International friendships made, the best GM intervention ever found in a game, and of course last but not least its a game.

That is why Teamspeak is sooooooooo important in any game.

Wow. We didn''t just hijack this thread, we drove it to Mexico, sold it to a chop shop, and spent the money on tequila at a grimy all-night booze joint!

I''d just like to emphasize that because Jumpgate is a sim, there''s no need to get to the highest level just to stay competitive. Any ship with any equipment can be combat-capable as long as the pilot has enough skill to use it. In fact, we used to have one person who became famous for using one of the newbie ships in PvP, and became quite good at it. So good, in fact, that when two Octavian fighter pilots found his lone shuttle, the Octavians RAN. I don''t know too many games where you can scare off people who are using gear that''s 20 levels above yours

I voted Other, which does NOT mean Jumpgate but instead means...

Guild Wars!

Why?

1. Ex-Blizzard team responsible for Diablo, Warcraft, Starcraft.

2. No Monthly Fee. Ever.

3. No Monthly Fee. Ever.

4. Great looking graphics, interesting sounding play innovations/refinements.

5. No Monthly Fee. Ever.

NOOO HOW WILL I SURVIVE!?!?!??!?? oops used them up even more .. does this take hit points? or health away?

oops used more... DAMN! now what?

AHHH DAMN IT AGAIN!!!

The reason why they charge monthly fees for massivly online multiplayer servers is because of the server costs, hardware costs, and an ever expanding content.

If a massivly online multiplayer was to go free, than it wouldent last too long.. Even with donation would be a financial suicide along with the banners.

I voted other: EVE Online or Anarchy Online. Have to give both a thorough try after my diploma. I might as well try WoW, but I''d rather play an SF game. Anyone know if Neocron is any good?

You know that feeling when you''ve walked into the woman''s bathroom by accident, and then realize what you have done?

Unfortunately, yes. What usually tips me off is they took all the urinals out of the women''s bathroom.

They did?! So thats why they keep arresting me.

I just read up a bit about Guild wars. Sounds really interesting, I will surely check out the E3 demo they will provide.

Necron is pretty good, its like a point and click Bladerunner if that makes any sence to you! Less point and click than SWG tho.
I never really played much, didnt like it a whole lot. but my boyfriend and a bunch of his buds played a while back (until they found JumpGate). and loved it but cant play it now.. to slow paced i guess.
I cant stand EVE or SWG b/c its all point and click... i like to do everything manually. Necron is a really cool game tho. you should check it out, you might like it if you like EVE.

but if you ever get sick of point and click.. and want a game with no ""attack"" button. try JumpGate. You have to fly the ship and attack all by yourself, so it might be a little difficult at first, just like i cant play point and click any more.. to slow for me. But its a blast and gets easier!

Took the words right outta my mouth. BTW not only does Veloxi have minions like myself, but he also has a full army of Conflux jellyfish ready to tear you limb from limb for staying planetside and not joining TRI to fight the Conflux menace or defend Octavius from the scrouge that the pirates represent or.....um sorry forgot my meds.

*takes pill*
*takes shot*
*takes inhaler*
*takes another shot*
*takes another pill*

Ok where did I leave off...oh yes! Or hunt down travel through the terror of Conflux space narrowly missing death may mere seconds....(continues until he passes out in seizures)

BTW, did I ever mention that I love you guys?!

I have nothing but respect for Anarchy Online, it''s a brilliant and complex game with tons of interesting sci-fi content. But...the complexity can put off players at first. My wife became frustrated with it, and since we game together I eventually stopped playing it as well.

(And now, back to the Jumpgate fans...)

So whats so good about jumpgate now?

I beta''d it for at least 3 months.. thought it was good. Didnt have the money for the subscription when it was released but 2 months later it did I join.

Got my @ss kicked by all the UBER pilots and hated it because of that. Played for a couple weeks and just couldnt compete. And of course that was that one AHole who loved to kill all newbies. Thats all he did, I remember wars on the forums about him. It was his mission to kill every person he saw because he could.

Of course this was back in 2002 and I havent been back since.

PAR
<-- good lord, how many posts do I have to do to get out of columbia?

Well, Par, a lot has been done to improve upon the game since 2002. A new conflux galaxy, player owned stations, and so on, are some of the big changes, as well as dozens of minor improvements and fixes.

In terms of PVP, you probably will still get your ass kicked by uber pilots, because they''ve got the most experience in the cockpit. There''s no /win command here.

Jumpgate is the closest thing to realistic flight in any genre in any game bar none.

I''ve played Eve and yeah it looks very nice. The system almost does everything for you. doing a mission takes Five clicks and I can leave my computer for a half hour while I do it...or sit there and watch. I''m a spectator in Eve. I almost have no emotional attachment to my character. Watching my ship get the living hell get beat out of it almost has the feeling of watching a football game.

The difference between jumpgate and other MMOs is the difference between watching the game and playing in it.

Why is there so much Female Doggoing and whining?

Becuase this game get''s you emotionally involved. You are in the cockpit staring down your opponant, and he''s looking back at you. You''re actually running your craft to get cargo and you get the actual feel of a heavy load. You feel the pride of that perfect landing when you''re carrying 500 units of uranium. In other games you see your ship acting sluggish...no big deal...in jumpgate you feel your ship being sluggish.

Yeah sure you can step away for a little bit while mining....but there''s always that risk of a flux dump or somebody deciding to pull up on you and leach your cargo.

Maybe this is over the top but I actually broke a flight stick during a furball becuase it''s that intense to me. I can''t do that anywhere else.

In Jumpgate my character isn''t made by ""rolls of the Dice"" My true charisma, combat acumen (or lack there of) determin whether I''m loved, hated, feared or heralded. My skill points are in my head and hands and that''s what matters.

Jumpgate is also a TRUE RTS. No point and click...You command fleets made of real people on voice chat or text, in real time. Your faith in your minions has nothing to do with artificial numbers, but true grit and skill and your true ability to lead.

Jumpgate is a true simulator, becuase it takes you mind, body and soul into the action. It relies on your expertise and the learning curve is forever being altered by the rest of the community.

This is not only the Best game no one plays...this is the best game ever and none will compare. Maybe someday someone will recognize it as a true pioneer in gaming.

Jumpgate is a true simulator, becuase it takes you mind, body and soul into the action.

High praise indeed.

Jumpgate is a true simulator, becuase it takes you mind, body and soul into the action.

And it''s only $9.99 a month! Who needs pricey escort services?

Is Wayne Brady gonna have to choke a Female Doggo? - Wayne Brady, Chappelle''s Show

I LOVE that show...oh and Jumpgate is more than a game, it''s a lifestyle that doesn''t get you in prision.

other cause JumpGate is the best game i''ve ever played. you get hooked and can''t stop playing. The player base is close nit and we have lots of fun while making the story line grow. tTo anyone who hasn''t tried it you need to!!!! Once you have experenced the world of Jump Gate you will never want to leave. Like we in the Jump Gate world say its Jump Crack, its not just a game its a way of life. Most of all like the web site says( www.josh.com) ""Welcome to your next life!""

c-ya Veloxi

I voted for WoW because....well..because I have faith in Blizzard.

I had faith until 3 of my friends blizzard games exploded. The CD''s literally explode. One in my CD player and the other 2 cracked and chipped apart. Crazy stuff. But other than that Blizzard has a remarkable record for quality.

Put an old cd into a 56x drive an they will explode.

I think that''s what happened. Was about 4 years ago. Brand new CD drive and an OLD copy of Diablo. Freaked me out.
