I have to say, that I'm really surprised at the fact that nobody has shown an interest in joining us on Anarchy Online! My wife and I have been playing MMORPGs for about 6 years now, and in that time have tried many, many releases including titles such as Star Wars Galaxies, Star Trek Online, Fallen Earth, Global Agenda, Final Fantasy, Thang, Supreme Destiny, City of Heroes, Champions Online, Imagine Online, Eudemons, Entropia Universe ... the list goes on and on.... and every time we end up back on Anarchy Online.
Released in 2001, AO was one of the first ever MMOPRGs... THE first Sci-Fi MMORPG, and perhaps the longest running MMORPG in existence... and it is still going strong! That has to say something does it not? There is SO much depth to this game. There is always something to do, or something new to try, new friends to be made, and new adventures. Due to it's complexity it attracts a more mature community (mostly), and it definitely has one of the friendliest and interactive player-bases around. In other games we have played, nobody ever wants to talk to each other.. you may as well play a single-player game if that's what you want.
If you join us we will be able to give you a great start in the game, giving you advantages that other players dont have when they first start. We will help you with in-game money (credits), armor, weapons etc. We also have a player city which gives new players the opportunity to experience the 'Alien Invasion' expansion from day one. We are more than happy to explain all the finer points of the game, and give you tours of the many many playfields in the game. We have characters in every profession/race, covering a very wide range of levels, so there is always someone to team with if you don't like playing alone. We are even happy to just have a chat about whatever.. it's a very social game like that. And lastly, to hopefully seal the deal, we are allied (and very close friends) with one of the largest neutral guilds in the game, which we can call upon for extra team-mates, and all kinds of other help. So basically, there's nothing we can't help you with if you decide to give it a try!
AO is free-to-play as a 'froob', which gives you access to most of the game. Or you can purchase one or all of the expansions, which opens up a massive new world of playfields, content, advantages and items. So it suits the casual player or even the most hardcore like us.
As mentioned in previous posts, we have our own guild/organisation called 'Elders of Rubi-ka', which is an over-25s group, which we would love to rename 'Elders of Rubi-ka [TOG]' .. or something simlar, given we get enough of you guys interested.
So why not give AO a try and come and join us for some fun today! If you are interested, please post here or send me a PM and I will tell you how to hook up with us in-game.
