Thumbs up Welcome!

Welcome to the Free to Play (F2P) forum, covering a growing number of games which are free to download, and do not charge a monthly subscription fee. There are literally hundreds of titles available. The quality and depth of some games have resulted in an enthusiastic following of TOG members.

Some great examples include Runes of Magic, Allods (in Beta), Rohan: Blood Feud, Dungeons & Dragons, Perfect World and a personal favorite Trackmania

I'm so happy that there is a part of the forum now where we can review and discuss free to play games !

When I became a member of tog I was surprised that this wasn't the case. A lot of the friends I made here didn't even know what free to play games are all about. And if they had heard of them they often assumed that they are all of very poor quality. These games have improved a lot over the last years, and I think both F2P and subscription based mmo's have a lot to offer.

Free mmo's can be a great alternative when you don't want to spend a lot of money or when you don't have enough time to spend on an mmo. If you download one of these games it doesn't matter if you 'll be able to log in a few times a month or every day because they won't cost you anything unless you spend money in the item shop.

You can combine both off course, when I subscribe to an MMO I always have a F2P MMO on my pc aswell. I play the second one when there is maintenance on my main MMO, and also from time to time when I'm fed up with grinding on my main game.

Henrideacon and me are testing a few of these free mmo's together with some other toggers. We would like to invite you join us in game, to give us your opinion on these games, or to post a review of the free to play mmo's that you play.

You can also come and have a chat with us on the MMO- Free to play channel on Teamspeak. Pm Henri or me if you're interested and we will send you the log in details.

Thanks a lot Father, Ashlann and all others for giving us this forum !!

Thumbs up

Nice to see the inclusion of such a message board topic. Probably now due to the archiving of a few defunct message boards within the community.

I'll add the only F2P MMO I'm dabbling with on a partial basis.

Free Realms: (SOE)

Free Realms - Welcome To Free Realms

I hope some of the F2P Mmo threads from the general "Mmorpg: The Realms" message board are moved into this one.

Including this older thread on "Free Realms" started by brohawk. Link. Thanks.

I tested Free Realms, it's fun and the great thing about is that you don't even have to download it, it's a browser based game.

I'm about to fly in the face of the whole purpose of an Older Gamer community with this next post.

If you've not tried it yet, go and download .

I went to check it out one day just so I could have a simple MMO to play with my sons (9 and 6). Now I'm hooked completely. Fire, Ice, Myth, Balance... Life, Storm, even Death. Pick your wizard's primary school and have a blast right out of the gate.

Wizard 101 is the unsung hero of free MMOs in this gamer's opinion. I've played several others as well as tons of pay-to-plays (WoW CoH/V, AC, DAoC, WAR..etc etc)

This one's free to play forever, but you can only access high level content and do things like ranked duels if you're a subscriber.

It's probably free for only one reason: so you'll play it and then eventually become a subscriber... and you probably will. This game is amazing. Even subscriptions are cheap ($60 for a year)

I cannot speak highly enough of this game.

If you are burned out on the time consuming MMORPGs, want something you can jump into and have a blast whether for 30 minutes or 8 hours then this is worth checking out.

It's very kid friendly but anyone of any age would enjoy playing it and there's actually a large population of adult players. In order to keep it kid friendly it runs into one of it's limiting factors: open chat. It's difficult to communicate in game.

Ventrillo helps us in the TOG world, but it still has a very good commo point/click system for kids so they can still interact and enjoy playing with others.

Whatever TOG'rs out there play this game, please PM me here. My main is a 36 Life Wizard.

I'm happy to team up with anyone that's questing. I'm also looking for arena dueling partners in 2v2, 3v3 and 4v4 for the near future.

Thanks for creating this thread! And give it a shot. You won't believe that a "kids" game could be more enjoyable than the WoWs out there.

Cheers,
~ Zav

I've read good things about Wizard 101 when it released, Zavulon. I'll definitely keep my eye on this one and maybe try out it with my kids if I get through the list of f2p mmo's I'm testing at the moment.
