How to choose a new MMO?

Picking a new MMO to try solo or with friends can be difficult. It's actually how MMO Populations was born!

Fortunately, you're at the right place. There are 3 metrics we recommend when looking at a new MMO:

  1. Total player base
  2. Activity percentage
  3. Growth

Total Player Base

When looking for a new MMO considering how many people are playing it is important. It might close down, or more likely, just be empty and boring. MMOs simply are more fun with others.

The MMO Population List is great for this. It will give you an estimate of the number of active players each MMO has. You can go into a given MMO to see the total subscriber base estimation as well.

Activity Percentage

Activity Percentage is a GREAT metric for gauging an MMOs popularity and quality. It estimates what percentage of the games players are active in the game. This shows excitement, interest and more!

Have a look at our MMO Activity List.


Possibly the biggest factor in eliminating an MMO from your list, growth speaks to if the community is growing at a healthy pace.

Every MMO on the site has a growth rating once you go in, but you can also look at the MMO Growth List.
