Changes and updates
Starting from now, every Saturday will be free of tournaments. However, on Sunday the following, you will receive 2x Tournament points (for participation, kills, and victories).
The Frozen effect has also been changed and now has 3 levels:
- Level 1 - the character is frozen and will skip one turn, the effect level is increased to level 2 (the rules of applying the effect are still the same - 3 successful hits on the character)
- Level 2 - the character will miss every second hit (random), and in 50% of the case the effect will be increased to level 3.
- Level 3 - lasts 10 seconds. Immune to being Frozen.
Change in scrolls to make catalysts and grindstones
All bosses will now drop 30 scrolls to make Grindstones or Catalysts. These recipes are now for one-time use only, but the items that are made using these scrolls will still stack properly. The server will process up to 10 scrolls simultaneously.
Tomorrow, 11 April, we will be performing server maintenance, starting from 05:00GMT until 06:00 GMT. During this time, both the game and the website may become unavailable.
What is an MMORPG?
An MMORPG, otherwise known as a Massive Multi-Player Online Role Playing game, in other words - Online RPG,
is a genre of online computer role playing games (CRPG) where considerable amounts of players cooperate with each other
in a virtual world (basically, in a fantasy setting). Like the majority of RPG's,
the role of an invented hero is given a possibility to operate its actions by the player who created it. MMORPG's
differ from one user and small network role playing games set by players in the virtual realm, which continues
to exist whether you are logged on or not. The virtual world is supported by the publisher of game.
In the virtual world, players can carry out various actions that interact with one another.
There are also characters in the game that are operated by the server called Non Player Characters (NPC's),
that include hostile or aggressive monsters. These are called mobs. When a player is engaged in combat with the
world's inhabitants and successfully destroys them, they are then rewarded with compensation and experience points.
The player then can use their received experience points to perfect the skills and abilities of the hero by using the gold coins
(the game currency and/or valuable items) that makes up the basis of the economy between the participants of the game.
In many MMORPG's, players have the ability to form alliances in game with other members that have a
variety of associations, such as guilds and/or clans which allow players to adhere to a certain policy in regards to other
players' orginazations. With some games a player can either decide to remain neutral or choose the more chaotic and destructive path
upon creating their characters and have the option to choose either or with their arrival into the realm - depending on a game's
plot or by the players choice. There are other MMORPG's that require players to pay a fee to their publishers in order to get
a users subscription and to obtain a copy of their game. Darkswords is a completely free MMORPG (Massive Multy-Player Online RPG)
that can be downloaded and played without having to pay any hidden fees or subscriptions.
Players who like MUD (Multi-User Dimension) like DarkSwords too, because we are close to their favorite games.
