The problem with free MMORPGs is that most of them use anti-hack/anti-cheat programs (such as X-Trap, Hackshield, etc.) that prevent them from running on virtual machines and GNU/Linux distributions (the latter is likely not intended, but a by-product of the way they work). If a game doesn't work according to WineHQ, PoL can't do much more since it's just a tool to help use Wine.

It might not be something you're expecting to read on a "PlayOnLinux" forum, but if you want to play MMORPGs (and several other games in general), your best option is probably to keep a dual boot with Windows for your games - that's what I do. Rebooting before and after a gaming session ain't too much trouble after all.
