Stratics is an Internet network of web sites and message boards focusing on massively multiplayer games. It is the oldest continuously running MMORPG news site on the internet.

The main site within the Stratics network has been its original site, Ultima Online Strategy and Statistics. The content of UOSS became the model upon which the overall network is designed.

The Stratics Network host "Houses of Commons" discussions with game developers via Internet Relay Chat. Originally called "Open Houses," the first House of Commons (HoCs) was held on February 12, 1998 and featured a variety of Ultima Online developers talking about the game with attendees, answering their questions live.

Houses of Commons included developers of other MMO titles, including EverQuest, Asheron's Call, and later Star Wars Galaxies and more modern massively multiplayer titles.
