I think "free to play" also involves the initial cost in an MMO context.

Yes, you buy it and that is it.

If you want Free 2 play completely, without an initial purchase...be prepared for content locks, cash shops that offer most of the game content for real money, and severe grinding as to only make you buy the OP cash shop items.

My point was that "F2P" usually implies that everything is free. You don't call a game like, say, MW2, "F2P", it's wrong in that context, because you paid for the game (in order to play it).

LoTRo is F2P.

But you have to pay to unlock quests, content, ect, stuff like that.

Very rare to find a F2P game, with no cash shop, no locked content ,no incenstive to buy. Enemy Territory is the only one I know of, maybe Alien Arena...not many.

Enemy Territory rocks! I used to be a community leader there, then I played ET:TCE and left afterwards. I'm currently working on an exiting project which involves ET, not your regular mods like these 'enhancement mods' but a new form of ET. Do you still play it MKilbride?

Anyway, got some DC Universe Online(Free to play) screenies

Waiting for the server to shut down.



Enjoying some selfchoking.



I like DCUO because it involves some mouse action(attacking), giving me the illusion it's a sort of action MMORPG. If I think about action games, I think of Devil May Cry, and while that's not really achievable in MMORPGs, I think DCUO has done a fair job in developing this action system.

No, it's been years.

and yes, Devil May Cry Combat is available in a MMORPG. Vindictus.

Vindictus is nowhere near Devil May Cry in terms of combat. However, the attacks have more "Umph" in them than they do in DCUO. It also uses an older version of the source engine, a lot weaker than what you can see in Left 4 Dead or Portal 2 in terms of physics, AI and probably network code.
Also, Tera beats the shit out of the two by sheer size and quality (with, maybe, the exception of the character models which are Korean "bleh").

Older Source?

Dude, it is the Source Engine, but they customize it, quite alot of what it does is not native to the engine, they replace whole parts of it, and it's as close to DMC as any MMORPG game has gotten, more so than Dynasty Warriors Online.

Yes, Older Source, as in an older version of the engine. You can't compare the version they used on Half Life 2 with the one they used for Left 4 Dead 2.
They added lots of stuff in that makes updating a game to a newer engine version risky. That's because an update would require software engineers dedicated solely to the engine update, which in turn requires more money and time.
Lets not forget that Half Life 2 and Left 4 Dead 2 have different system requirements. Meaning that by updating the engine, they would lose those players who won't be able to run the game.

Every sword and even most of the knives look like greatswords if you're playing as Bellato or Cora xD For comparison, Bellato is twice smaller than my Accretian character in the pictures above, imagine how would a Bell look holding that spear (or this sword) xD But to answer the question, no, there are only Swords, Spears, Axes, Maces and Knives, as far as melee weapons go.

You don't pet in RF. You kill other people, ruin their exp parties and make them quit the game. If you expect a decent PVE experience, you'll be disappoint.
