Over the last few days I've been reading up on World of warcraft drama. Different guilds which fell apart (often due to succubi) and how various guilds fell from grace and disbanded. It reminded me of a time when guilds were a thing and people made friends with randoms in game and adventured together. It's made me wonder if any games exist today which still have a social aspect at all. Has discord destroyed in game communities and text chat to the point where it's possible?

I think people just stick to their discord groups now, I never had a single person talk to me in world of warcraft, actually most people straight ignore me, but in like runescape you can definitely find people to talk to randomly since it’s more of a social game and people still play it

holy shit this is so true.

I played WoW just because of that, and couldn't interact with anyone once. actually was treated with contempt on their discord when I tried to ask why people were like that.

I never played multiplayer games and until reading your post I thought this was the only real attraction mmo games have? It's really weird to me that people don't interact in those types of games anymore. What even is the point then?

Why are people still playing it? If you're going to play solo, at least play a single player game where you get to be the main protagonist.

The fact OP is having a hard time finding social interaction on mmo games is so odd to me. Wth people are doing in those games nowadays?

is almost as if people treated it as work.

they grind day and night for the shinny bidoff, and the glinting horse.

Games like that are complete cancer. Video games should be just like real games, with a clear start and end. Either with a story if singleplayer or a match if multiplayer. A never-ending grind to build up points cannot be called a game. And imagine how many people have wasted their youth on such bullshit. It's a crime against humanity.

These games still exist in the form of private servers. The problem is most of these games didn't age well so if you have no nostalgia for them you might not get into them as easily. Ill name a few.

bro I played tauri WoW, and honestly it was all about grinding for items.

how is this server different if you don't mind telling me?

it's a different expansion which is focused more on group play and content, tauri is MoP which is when WoW was already a single player game

Almost every game with a large community seems to be toxic. Ironically teams bring out the worst in gamers when we're supposed to be on the same side.

1v1 even though you're enemies, are generally respectful end with a GG. If he wants to own you, he has to do it with his skill in beating you not his words.

OSRS still had some of that last time I played, but it wasn't quite like it was over a decade ago I think.

I second >>52667 idea that people just stick to discord now. It's kind of perplexing to me. I mean, how do these people even find each other anymore? I remember back in the day you'd just play with a bunch of people, eventually you'd get sorta familiar with your corner of the game and if you were particularly good some clannie would notice you and invite you to try out or something.

I have no idea why no one interacts in MMOs anymore. What the fuck is the point of playing a MMO when you don't bother talking to anyone? T he game that revives the MMO genre is the game that gets people talking to each other in game.

You gotta join a discord or some shit man. Everyone's cliquing it up beforehand these days rather than making impromptu clans with randoms like in the good old days.
In my opinion it's not even worth it to put the effort in just for a boring mmorpg though.

I like soloing in MMOs.

I like the gameplay, progression, and exploring the world. I don't play them because I want a shitty chat room or to socialize.

The only time I was "social" in a MMO consistently was when I got into the market and trade side of things in one MMO and was in a guild with like minded merchants.
But again it was less socializing and more trading market information and the like.

If I do group content I just group up with randoms or use the inbuilt match making to aid in finding a party.

If I wanted to do the whole social thing then I would play a purely social game like VR chat or to a lesser extent second life.

I played OSRS from 07 - 11, there still were lots of bots, but people would actually chat.
Last time I tried OSRS it was just quiet, probably a mix of bots, and people just not talking anymore, just watching Netflix or something

It is sad to think there will never be the same community experience in any game again except maybe VR in the future.
A big part of RS used to be just playing and meeting others and sure now you can find people to talk to but it is not the same at all and the only reason OSRS is probably like that is that a lot of loser types play it and do not use discord.

I have been told that WoW classic is better. But they talk on Discord. There are people that have been playing for 10+ years and take the guilds quite seriously

The grand exchange definitely changed things as well.
