Instead of raving and ranting about how correct I am, I just wanna say thanks man, for taking the time out of your day to write this article for us.

 

Methinks people need to get off their holier-than-thou condescending "I'm right and your wrong and I'll argue until the end of next week because thats all I have to do" chair and have a big glass of STFU. 

 

People take things for granted sooo much, and hell... even FREE. My god people, you're like little children sometimes.

I just want to add a game to list ..... even though it may not be a true mmo it does share some elements and is in the spirit of DotA (warcraft 3). Its called League of Legends ( pvp.net ) Check it out its free and a bunch of fun

Archlord is an awesome free MMO. Its got great graphics, gameplay, and a ton of players. Theres also perfect World which is really cool and free. And they're both better than Drift City....

LotRO is not free yet, it will be this fall, and it's not truly going to be free, but will be freemium.  Also, why isn't Allods Online mentioned, it's better than the last 3 you picked?

I'm aware of that.  Hence this line:

"LOTR is testing out its free functionality in a beta test right now, which means that you can't actually download a client and just jump right in as of this article's writing."

Freemium is still free, as far as I'm concerned.

Oh lord.  Semantics fight!  Semantics fight!  I posted this to the DDO writeup, and a similar situation likely applies with LOTRO:

"The catch is that the "free" version of DDO is a wee limited versus its paid-for counterpart. You won't get fancy classes like the Monk or races like the Drow or Warforged, and can only have two free character slots. But these changes, and others, are a small price to pay for a full-fledged game that costs you nothing to play."

Still, free game.  Not a trial.  Play as long as you want.  Sure, some elements might be limited, but the core of the game is nevertheless there in its entirety.

It's obvioius you didn't follow what I posted before:

Because if you did follow it, then you'd know it's a copy of that chart!

Ain't no chart on the front page there, holmes.

It's obvious you have no idea how to use a web forum, as that link I posted links directly to the post I made on the OnRPG forum!

From their announcement page:

Free means Free – Players will download LOTRO and join with millions of other adventurers as they explore the most complete and authentic recreation of Middle-earth ever created and participate in LOTRO’s award-winning epic story up to level 50 for free.

How is that NOT completely free-to-play? Or do you consider getting to level 50 (the maximum) some kind of extended demo?

Apparently it has to be the full game, all the expansions, and a giant 8' by 8' map of Middle Earth sent directly to your house before some people accept a game as being truly "free."

Even then they'd still pirate it out of spite.
