This is a comprehensive index of massively multiplayer online strategy video games, sorted chronologically. Turn-based games include tick-based games that reset the number of allowed actions after a certain time period. Real-time games feature fast-paced interaction between units that occurs in real time, much as in other real-time strategy games. Information regarding date of release, developer, platform, setting and notability is provided when available. The table can be sorted by clicking on the small boxes next to the column headings.
