Free to Play Online games

Recently I have been playing a decent amount of F2P(Free to play) games since World of Warcraft has hit a slow period for me. I do this often so that I can take a break from WoW and be able to see what the rest MMO world has to offer.

The first game I tried was Allods Online which was deemed by most a WoW clone. Starting off the game is kinda fun but in order to level it is strictly based off of quests and grinding is not recommended since it is very hard to aoe in the game because the mobs hit too hard. Also recently they added a patch that made leveling unbearable unless you bought some items from the cash shop. This made a good chunk of the community leave and thinking back on when they added the patch I'm not sure if I even want to play the game again due to lack of confidence in the staff.

Moving on, I am currently playing Free Style Street Basketball which is another ok game but there is a particularly high learning curve that new players have to face. Early on you play games to level up and acquire points which are used on skills, clothes and free styles which are variations of other skills. This game also keeps track of your win/loss record which is good at the later levels to weed out the nubs but at the lower levels most players will kick you from the team if your ratio is too low making it even harder to level or even play. Overall the game is pretty good if you have some interest in basketball and don't mind the scarceness of matches and players at random times during the day.
