    So, I've played WoW, EQ1 and 2, Vanguard and most importantly, UO. While I never got totally into EQ's, or Vanguard, WoW held my attention pretty well until about lvl 60. I don't care THAT much for PvE, and it's not why I play MMO's, I play for PvP. I like PvE'ing now and then as a source for items and money and such, but I really prefer player interaction.

    The things I loved about UO:

    -Everyone was capped and balanced fairly well
    -Crafting was awesome
    -the PvP set-up was probably the best I've ever seen in my opinion.

    I loved being able to log on whenever I wanted, run around alone or with friends and fight who or whatever I wanted when I wanted when I could find them.

    I don't mind penalties, and the ones in UO were perfect, lootable corpses and such.

    So, what's coming up that should hold my attention. For now it's all TF2 baby.

    Give Guild Wars serious consideration. Great PvP, easy to get into and has four amazing PvE story lines. The only downside is that it's not an open world if you're used to playing in one.

    For PvP I'd recommend Eve but they are fucking it up next expansion.

    Guild Wars 2 won't even be in beta until a year from now. You have plenty of time to hop on GW now and enjoy it.

    Has any one played the new UO (http://www.uoherald.com/kingdomreborn/)? After looking at a lot of the newer MMOs not many seem as fun/appealing(?) as UO was back in the day.. I wonder how big the user base is these days..

    UO still went gay though. It really needs to go back to just before pre-Trammel, or make for Felucca facets. Either way I'd totally play UO again on a good freeshard,e specially if they support this new UO, first time I've seen it looks way better then the abomination that was UO:3D. To many of the free shards went weird. Just want a UO replica shard around the time of UO:R. Right before they brought in Trammel

    I want something that looks better than WoW, has a WoW like interface, with pretrammel UO crafting/PvP/looting death.

    The Realm Online (www.realmserver.com)

    The first MMORPG ever and still running. It's not as fancy as WoW, but the basic game mechanics work. (Except pvp, lol)

    Free trial though

    HAHAH. That looks like a runescape except with better graphics.

    I like runescape though besides the shittiness of the looks, but yeah I think I'll give it a try.

    Everything you described can be done in Rappelz, and that shit is free too.

    http://rappelz.gpotato.com/

    Play on pantera server, it's the only one with pvp.

    There's no crafting in rappelz, but you can upgrade, overupgrade your items though.

    You can log off anytime you want too, lol.
