BDO has a good OTG presence as well. Guilds are limited to 100 members and OTG has 4 guilds in BDO with 2 nearly full most of the time. I spend most my gaming time there and just started FFXIV. My focus will shift to WoW Classic when it launches.
One word of warning about BDO. It’s very cash shop heavy and gambling heavy. So if you or your wife have issues with that, don’t play it. You don’t need to spend any money, but at pretty much every corner of the game you’re tempted to, so it requires a certain amount of self control.
Otherwise it’s a very immersive and sometimes crazy game, well worth a try.
I’m noodling around in WoW (retail) mostly because there is nothing else out right now that I am super interested in. Plan to dabble in Classic, but IDK if I’ll stick - been there, done that, not sure I want to go back to walking a mile in the snow, both ways.
I keep saying I’m going to give FFXIV another shot, or poke my head back into ESO or GW2, but I’ve just been too busy this summer to spread my game time around.
As far as OTG getting into upcoming games, you can count on there to be OTG people in any new game. We are legion, so we’re everywhere.
I have been playing around in Black Desert some and WOW retail. Waiting on WOW classic but also thinking about getting in to FFXIV. Just not sure yet. Black Desert does have a lot of Cash shop offerings and wanting you to buy out of it but you do not have to.
BDO is the one we are looking at, we can each dump $20.00-$30.00 into it now and then if it grabs us but neither one of us have ever used a “cash shop” in game before. We have of course paid a monthly fee to play most MMORPGs that we have enjoyed.
