Unblogged Wisdom Checks: Rerank MOPs List of Healthiest MMOs in 2018

Let’s do something silly this week in our poll format, shall we? So last week Massively Overpowered dished out their list of “Healthiest MMOs in 2018” that included Neverwinter at rank 6. We’d like to rerank all listed MMOs this week and see whether our audience agrees with the editors at MOP (probably not). Since we don’t expect anyone to have deep knowledge of all the games, you can just choose up to three favorite ones in the poll below. As a small help, we’ve attached MOPs method of compiling the list. Let’s roll!

As is stated every year, this is a list compiled and put together using a variety of sources, including a glance at obvious metrics of the game’s community, population estimates, overall news, and so forth. It is not an objective or infallible measurement of health, but rather an evaluation of which games look like they’re in the best state based on several factors; it is eminently possible for us to be proven wrong as 2019 rolls on, but here’s the list for 2018.

What was the Healthiest MMO in 2018?

  • Neverwinter (34%, 244 Votes)
  • World of Warcraft (16%, 114 Votes)
  • Warframe (12%, 84 Votes)
  • The Elder Scrolls Online (11%, 81 Votes)
  • Final Fantasy XIV (9%, 62 Votes)
  • Path of Exile (8%, 59 Votes)
  • Guild Wars 2 (4%, 31 Votes)
  • Black Desert Online (4%, 29 Votes)
  • RuneScape (2%, 17 Votes)
  • EVE Online (1%, 7 Votes)

    What is most hilarious about this ranking is that Path of Exile is not even an MMO. In fact, the developers went as far as to outright publish an article on it stating they are not.


    So I would make a new ranking, that actually has 10 candidates which are actually MMOs. For example:

    – Tera.
    – WoW.
    – Neverwinter.
    – Eve Online.
    – ESO.
    – FFXIV.
    – BDO.
    – GW2.
    – Runescape.
    Some other game, I don’t count warframe as an MMO either.
