[=NCsoft=] is an MMORPG publisher, best known (for certain definitions of "best") in America for publishing (and ultimately cancelling) ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' and ''VideoGame/TabulaRasa''; however, before that, [=NCSoft=] developed and ran the two biggest worldwide [=MMOs=] before ''World of Warcraft'': ''Lineage'' and ''Lineage 2''. WikiMagic, please. They also pioneered, to an extent, the "pay once and play forever" model of [=MMOs=], backing up Arena Net as their publisher for ''VideoGame/GuildWars''.
