About Us

  • History

    Founded in 1997, Stratics is the world's oldest, continually-operating MMO fansite. We began as a community of players supporting Ultima Online, publishing news, strategy guides, and statistics for the title. Over the years, we have extended similar support to a variety of titles, partnering with numerous game publishers, including BioWare, Blizzard, CCP Games, Funcom, Mythic, Nexon, Origin, Portalarium, and ZeniMax. Stratics is an anagram for strategy and statistics.

    Mission

    We are a diverse community of gamers united by a shared passion to serve the players, assist the developers, and promote the games that we support by: publishing news, strategy, and statistics; strengthening player communities; and creating positive communication between players and developers.

    Vision

    Our vision is to become a mainstay of support for the games that we represent by creating valuable resources, developing strong communities, inspiring professionalized team members, and amplifying the voices of players and developers.
