[...]There is no any another MMO-roguelike game[...]
You seem to forget that TomeNET is based on PernMAngband--multiplayer PernAngband--itself basd on MAngband, which has other forks the last few years besides TomeNET (PWMAngband?)

There are/were also three multiplayer NetHacks: InterHack (discontinued, but code is still out there,) and two named HackNet, one of which may not work on current-day computers (without running 32-bit programs,) and the other that just keeps asking you to enter character name.  But, InterHack worked, just didn't have many people running servers.

Currently there are 3 truly online roguelike games:

1) TomeNET (http://tomenet.eu)
2) mAngband ( http://mangband.org )
3) PWMAngband ( http://powerwyrm.monsite-orange.fr ).

Details:
- PernMAngband it was actually TomeNET, which was renamed cause copyright Pern issues.
- TomeNET is the most popular online roguelike; but also there are two more online roguelike games - MAngband (was 1st online roguelike ever) and PWMAngband (got some pretty revolutionary stuff). I like this games, but it's hard to call them 'MMO-roguelike', as I call TomeNET. They are more 'multiplayer roguelikes'... TomeNET got ~1.5k accounts, pretty big population which come and go, so it's surely could be called MMO game.
- There are a lot of old rumours about NetHack Online (InterHack, HackNet).. I tried hard to be able to play Nethack online, but didn't get success; it seems all devs abandoned their work long time ago, clients doesn't work.

Also some online games with strong roguelike elements:
1) Tibia
2) Mystera Legacy
3) RPG MO
4) RotMG (not too roguelikish, but interesting)

List @ my tavern - would be updated.
