This is a common beginner question, and the answer is unfortunately discouraging.

Forget about making an MMORPG, these games take years to build if a team of experts is working on them, a beginner has no chance whatsoever. Start learning plain C++, move to simple games and keep working your way up. By the time you are skilled enough to make an MMORPG, you will know. But that is years away if ever.

There is no such thing as a "not soo big" MMORPG, they are the most complex elements of pretty much every other genre put together (and then some).

If you want general games, the stickies on this forum will help you. If you still insist on an MMORPG, I can't help you.

Edit: To be more helpful, I need more information. What is your background in math? How much C++ do you know? This stuff will dictate where you start.

Ummmm i know all the language basics (vars,arrays,loops,classes,unions,structs,unums etc..) and i work with C++ to create Windows APP (connecting with DB) like chat, forum applications etc... (i hope that could help ^^")

Edit:

A team can be both a blessing and a curse. While a team is nice for joint development, individual skills must also be emphasized.

Games are the hardest types of programs to make, general purpose programs will be of immense help because they boost your general programming skills before you make games. I think it is an excellent idea to make general applications.

For general applications, use the win32 library (I learned form http://www.winprog.org/tutorial/ ). I was stunned with how many elements of .net I saw in these libraries, except I was working with them behind the scenes (I work as a .net programmer).
