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.
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.
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.
