Albrecht and Katz personally are known for their experiences with iconic MMO titles such as Star Wars Galaxies and Ultima Online. “We both have played MMORPGs for years — and suffered all the frustrations associated with trying to find and communicate with our gamer friends – especially after we had shifted to a new game,” explains social network co-creator Alex Albrecht. "Our goal is to create a social network that targets the specific needs of MMORPG players, like us." http://b-ten.com/2014/11/11/zergid-social-network-mmorpg-gamers/
After years of playing MMORPGS and running into the same frustrations, we discussed this concept over coffee one day, of creating a website and accompanying app that would allow users to connect with their gaming friends without having to give them personal information. http://nerdragenews.com/zergid-a-social-network-for-gamers/
Which MMORPG is showing the most popularity so far? If the answer is World of Warcraft, what's the next most popular after WoW? What about MOBAs and other online-but-not-massive games?
As far as MMORPG's go, WoW is, of course the largest, especially with the renewed interest due to the successful release of Warlords of Draenor. The second most popular is a tie between Guild Wars 2 and ArcheAge. We have also seen a large interest in MOBA games, such as League of Legends. Not so surprisingly, Hearthstone is also highly represented with numbers similar to Guild Wars 2 and ArcheAge. http://www.engadget.com/2014/12/07/wow-guild-wars-2-and-archeage-are-zergid-users-top-games/
