So yeah, title says it all. I'm super bored and want to try a free MMO or at least a persistent game. I thought about DOFUS for an RPG, and Gunz as an alternative. I know Dofus is pretty active, but don't really know about Gunz. Anyway yeah, recommend a persistent game which is free and has got an active community until All Points Bulletin comes out because I can't wait for that game and it seems like it's never coming out.

i recently downloaded the Allods Online open beta, and im enjoying it. Its a huge WOW clone, which made it easy to get into.

Runescape imho
I don't play it myself but I hear it's the one if you're looking for a good FTP MMO, my brother used to play it when he had the time says it was fun.

How does it compare to the previous titles like Allods 1, 2 and Evil Islands (aka Allods 3D)?

I've heard some very good things about Dungeons & Dragons Online lately ( Massively.com).  Since it started as a subscription model game it has a lot of content and polish.  Check it out here.  LINK  Of course, being a free-to-play game there is microtransaction store and I think there may even be a premium/VIP-member subscription available for those who really get into it.   Since you are just looking to kill time, you might want to take a closer look at this game.  DOWNLOAD CLIENT

I think it's gonna be this one. Reminds me of Planetside which I never actually played because I heard it wasn't very good but I liked the concept.

Wait for the Torchlight MMO from Cryptic Games, play Battlefield Heroes, or Quake Live.
 
Edit: I meant Runic Games.

SilkRoad Online is free, it's alright, but it's hard as hell to log in to and its extremely grindy.  There's a ton of free MMOs at aeriagames.com.  Personally though, I would say Runescape if you want a free MMO.  You can also play Warhammer Online up to level 10 for as long as you want for free now.

I've been playing tons of Allods. Excellent game, much worth the price ($0).

Quake LIVE

#21 Posted by ZookieWookie (39 posts) -

Theres also League of Legends for a dota styled game

#22 Posted by BraveToaster (12588 posts) -

I heard Runes of Magic is good... I tried to download it but it took way too long, and I downloaded Aion (which requires more space) pretty fast.

#23 Posted by stephengotlost (703 posts) -

 League of Legends
Battlefield Heroes
A.V.A. 
Combat Arms
 
In that order.

I'd say this, but the UI is so god-damn archaic (see: Everquest's inane original menu system) and te movement is so slow, that it gets real boring, real fast.  
 
Though, it's got that MegaTen style to it that made it hard to put down...until I realised the ass-ness of the game.  
 
Oh, and D&D Online is pretty good, and the combat is at least somewhat more enjoyable for an MMORPG.
#25 Posted by Vager (1654 posts) -

I'd say Wurm Online, but thats a niche MMO.

#26 Posted by Laharl (350 posts) -

Its been awhile since i touched it but i always recommend Dungeon fighter online. Its free and a decent waste of time, as an mmo kinda meh but a decent distraction till swtor(for me anyway)

#27 Edited by DevWil (842 posts) -

that game took a ton of my time in high school.  very funny game.
