Lists, especially ranked lists, are always good for some attention.
In that vein, Ten Ton Hammer decided to stir the pot a bit by ranking what they consider to be the Top Ten PvP MMOs.
I’ll spoil the surprise and give you their list ranked top to bottom. You’ll have to go read the article to get the justifications.
- Dark Age of Camelot
- Eve Online
- Warhammer Online
- Lineage 2
- Guild Wars
- Age of Conan
- Lord of the Rings Online
They used the phrase “out there” to describe their selections, by which I assume they mean they are measuring the PvP-ness you can get today from these games, as opposed to when they were at their peak. So no Shadowbane.
That also might explain the lack of Ultima Online on the list.
But if you’re going to exclude UO for its current state of affairs, how do you justify keeping Planetside on the list?
