For me it would have to be Vanguard.
It is visually stunning, and once you start to get past some of the wonky animations, it is a joy to play.

I believe Planetside deserves a sequel!

I have to agree I really wish Vanguard had a better release I have been watching the changes to the game and I think it might be time to give it a shot.

Either Vanguard or LOTRO ... both seemed to be underappreciated and are running "relatively smoothly" now...

Ok, favorite underappreciated MMO would have to be AO. The game never had any huge numbers, but there was no mistaking it's complexity and fun factor. Of course now it's very outdated, but will always hold that place in my heart

My favorite underdog MMO was definitely AutoAssault. Obviously it shut down a while back but it had good things going for it. The story was great and the combat was maliciously fun. Unfortunately it just didn't have enough polish or people interested in it to keep it going.

RIP AA!

EQ2 is a vastly underestimated MMO even though popular, it's a huge world and the addition of PvP made this so much fun!

I'm no way saying Vanguard as I'm sure many will in order to secure entry into the prize draw.

I'd have to say Auto Assault as well. I never played it, but the concept always appealed to me. I'm kind of sad I never got around to trying it out.

I have to throw out Hellgate London too, even though it wasn't really an MMO in the standard sense. I always thought a first-person Diablo game would be a great idea. I still do to be honest.

My favorite underdog MMO is DDO, as I'm quite vocal about. I do really like the hardcore though, so I really hope to be lucky here!

DDO for the win.

I still miss AutoAssault. If only they'd managed to get the teaming right, instead of focusing on the PVP. Imagine hooking up and trying to protect a caravan of trucks going down the interstate... even manning different parts of a truck.

I'd say LotRO... although that's rather successful. If I had to get something lower, I'd go with DDO. Great game, lots of good ideas and I like thati t's more action based.

It is diffidently Vanguard SoH. Even with (3) GTX 280 FTW’s running in 3-Way SLI it still is taxing on my system. It has gotten better over the years, but once the newness of a game wears off and on top of that gets unfavorable remarks because of performance it’s hard to turn a game around. Luckily those who have been working through it make it a very enjoyable community, those who do give it a whirl tend to enjoy it, and word of mouth is everything.

For me it's Vanguard. When I first played it reminded me so much of why I loved MMOs and brought back the feeling I had when I first played Everquest. It's such a great game!

My favorite unappriciated MMO is Tabula Rasa. It might be because it's a Sci-Fi MMO and the genre has more people into the fantasy ones, but the game is really good for it's PvE content. Bane invasions at the control bases are the best ever as several ships fly in to drop off an army of the enemy knocking on the door. Also, the way the enemies spawned by being teleported in is better then the the randomly spawning like in other games.

The only problem is the game was a late bloomer and lacks several things that were initially said being developed in the Beta over a year ago (such as PAUs, guild owned bases, ect). Now, I've heard a few of these things have gone in, yet others are still not there. Also, the PvP is very empty and is missing something (cannot quite put my finger on it, but it's something).

I think of the ones I've played, Eve is one of the big ones that's least appreciated.

I'd have to say Vanguard as well. I haven't played a whole lot of it, but I have enjoyed it so far.
