Before we get started, I want to give special thanks to the following people/groups for significantly helping MMOPulse during our site's first three days.

Notes

Oddly enough, a common question we’ve received is “why does the site not have any ads? How are you making any revenue?” Simply put, we don’t need them at the moment to keep everything running smoothly, so we don’t have them. I know how annoying ads can be, so MMOPulse will likely stay that way for a while unless our audience rate demands a better hosting service. I do hope that our site gains enough traction that we will eventually need ads to support costs of improving hosting plans, premium plugins and security. However, when we do bring ads to the site, they will always be minimal and never intrusive.

There have been concerns regarding little difference between MMO sections and MMORPG section. There will be clear differences when more games have been added.

Here is a list of MMORPGs from the current decade with impressive PvP.

We are listing these games based on release dates in descending order. This is an on-going list that will be updated every time a new impressive PvP centric MMORPG reveals itself.
