The fact that we’re getting closer to the end of 2018 means that in the coming weeks more and more sites will dish out plenty of toplists ranking and rating the MMOs on the market. As it turns out Massively Overpowered decided to start the party early with their “List of Healthiest MMOs of 2018“. And guess what, you favorite game came in at number six! Here’s what the editors over there had to say about our title:
[su_quote]It has not been a great year for Neverwinter, but it hasn’t been a bad year either. It’s just been a year. In many ways it feels like a year in which the game has managed to keep on keeping on, not making any community missteps big enough to merit incoherent screaming while not really expanding beyond its base or its usual pace of updates. Of course, sometimes that in and of itself is indicative of health, when you can just roll out a reasonable stream of content and avoid faltering in the process. It hasn’t been a good enough year for the game to bump it up at all, but it hasn’t fallen off the list. We’ll count that as “doing all right.”[/su_quote]
Those reviews from general MMO sites normally tend to be superficial. This one certainly is as well, but it’s still refreshingly accurate. Neverwinter continued it’s path slow and steady, and it was successful enough to constantly bring new players in and keep some of the veterans interested. That might sound underwhelming, but in a year that WildStar got shut down we might as well be a little more appreciative that we’re still around.
Neverwinter Didn’t Make a Major Splash
As MOP rightfully mentioned however, Neverwinter didn’t really make any major strides either. We believe the game is generally moving into the right direction, but first and foremost lacks resources to really expand. So 2018 also was another year in which Cryptic hasn’t been able to take the game to the “next level”, neither in terms of features or player base. We surely will talk about that a lot more in our own reviews, but for now we tend to agree with the “doing all right” label. Neverwinter by the way made various MOP toplists before, and we certainly hope this won’t be the last time.
Here are all titles on the list:
- FF XVI
