is a computer game using a permanent Internet connection.
Online games are divided into several types.
Really online games are divided into browser and client. They differ in the consumed traffic, the method of connection and many others.
Browser games are completely uninteresting, not dynamic, and not at all relevant.
This erroneous view has survived as the first impression of those simple 10-20 page games that were really too elementary and quickly bored. But progress does not stand still and browser-based online games are no exception. Modern technologies, such as Flash, allow you to turn a browser game from a picture into a full game. At the same time, browser games have one of the main trump cards – low consumption of traffic.
Browser games are morally obsolete.
This is more a false opinion, because in full growth such games began to develop only recently and have not yet managed to fully reveal themselves. At the moment there are many popular portals and most likely the very definition of “browser game” will be slightly adjusted for the better. Despite the fact that in the modern world almost all households have access to unlimited Internet traffic, many people need a wireless type of connection which at the moment, in most cases, is paid for by traffic. Therefore, online games do not threaten death in the near future.
There are only a few genres of browser games.
Browser games managed to implement absolutely all genres of PC games, from shooters to gambling. Moreover – in browser games most often the game is not made between a person and a computer, but between two or more people.
In browser games you can make money.
Yes it is possible, because online casinos can also be attributed to browser games. There is a separate category of genre games in which real money can be obtained, but such games often require payment for use, you pay money access to the game world, or other capital investments. As for the benefit of the owner of the genre game – most often he leads the paid game services – Donate, you donate a certain amount to the server, and in gratitude you get a game value or advantage that is difficult to access or impossible to get by the game way.
In order to play a client game you need to download a special client program.
In most cases this is the case, since client games most often are full-fledged, complex programs with their own game world and many features. But in the simpler ones, you can often play through auxiliary tools, for example, the Internet messenger ICQ includes several client games. The client program is usually free.
MMORPG – the main branch of client games.
Yes, it is true, it is she who is the most developed. MMORPG is often a huge virtual world in which the player acts with the help of the chosen hero. MMORPG differs from RPG so that in addition to computer characters in the game there are real ones. The majority of the game is built on the player’s interaction with each other and personal development (the RPG element). The plot line is most often present as a choice opportunity, otherwise the player is completely free. From RPG are also quests (Quest) – tasks from non-game characters, for which the player will receive a monetary reward or other things necessary for advancement on the story line. In addition to players in the game there are no game characters – NPC. NPCs give quests, sell things, and so on.
There are official servers from the developers MMORPG games.
Yes, it is. Game servers are divided into official and not official, the latter is commonly called shards. Official servers have a fixed fee for access and are divided by region. Not official are free, but have more paid services than official ones.In addition, official servers have an advantage because they use official development, and on shards, most often Java copies. As a consequence, on official servers there are always more work items of quests, etc. they are more stable and with updates, they do everything at once, they do not try to copy the official ones for a long time, or write like the official one. In addition, the official server has a minimum of paid services, because it is held at the expense of a fixed subscription fee, not the official ones are kept at the expense of paid services or things that are difficult or impossible to obtain by the game way. Very often this leads to a game imbalance.
MMORPG games are divided into types.
Yes, they are divided according to principle – a player against the world, a player versus a player, a group of players against another group or the world. But most often contain several of the above types.
Online games are a good way to kill time.
This is one of the main distinguishing features of this genre. Games are designed so that the person during the whole storyline had something to do, it increases the interest in the game and the time spent on it.
Online client games consume a lot of traffic.
Unfortunately, this is true, they consume more traffic than browser-based ones, but are more developed. Although in many there is a mode for saving traffic.
The client program weighs a lot.
The program size ranges from 800 megabytes to 3 gigabytes. This is explained by the fact that these programs have good graphics and they contain a lot of information that is necessary for connection and full work.
Online client games exist only for Windows.
This is not so much of the software available in Linux versions.
Online client games only work on the PC.
This is so because the game consoles either do not have access to the Internet, or are not distributed on a massive scale.
In MMORPG it is impossible to create a universal character that will be able to do everything.
This is true, because the genre MMORPG itself assumes a team game during the whole RPG of the plot. Therefore, the character can learn a specific profession and will specialize in it, for example, no one can treat it like a doctor and at the same time no one can sustain, as much damage as a tank. Most often, there are several professions – Tank (withstands a lot of damage, but can not do it himself), Healer (can heal, sometimes increase the character’s parameters by imposing “buff” but is powerless in any type of combat), dealing damage (deals a lot of damage, but has weak protection). Most often, the last profession has 2 options – a magician and a warrior, they differ in the way they conduct combat and force. Also there may be additional professions.
To play well and grow fast, you need to be a friend of the GM (server administrator).
The issue of the reliability of the server is already discussed here, firstly, if the server has its own reputation and the person who created it really seriously treats it, then this statement is false. Since the above GMU is not beneficial to help friends, this will lead to loss of people on the server. But if the server is one-day or just for personal toys, then such cases will take place. Most large servers hire people to work for GMs, for many reasons, for example, one needs to maintain order, and the opportunity to be in the game all the time – no, let’s say there are matters of the highest importance. In this case, when catching GM on such things it is enough to write to the chief administrator, (the server’s organizer). His e-mail or other contact details are most often indicated on the “Contacts” page. But remember one thing – on one serious and solid server GM will not help friends. If this happens, it says only the irresponsibility or frivolity of the server organizer.
Money from “donations” goes to the chief administrator in his pocket.
This is not entirely true, of course – the part goes exactly to the specified address, but only a part, since it is necessary to pay for the server placement, for the dedicated address, domain. In addition, you should not be so confident in the inaction of the administration, because the elementary logic suggests that the better and more stable the server, the more people on it, and more of those “donations” part of which goes to the administration in your pocket. Therefore, in the improvement of the server are interested in everything and to say for sure that 100% goes into your pocket – you can not.
Um is the coolest person on the server, so everyone is eager to become one.
On most respectable and responsible servers, this is not the case, the problem of helping GMs to friends has already been discussed above, and the answer was that it is forbidden. Many people are attracted to this post by a certain status and power, but as mentioned above, on solid and serious servers, GM has no right to interfere with the game except circumstances that are not foreseen by the game process. Another thing, often GM receives a certain fee, for which he works. In other words, to be GM does not mean to be worn on the server with the best things, etc. etc. This is a responsible and serious work on tuning and debugging the server, finalizing the nth. The only time when the GM intervenes in the game process (Except unforeseen circumstances) is the holding of “events” (contests, or any other events specially planned and organized by the administration).
There are errors in servers that everyone uses and gets the best things.
In any server there is a flaw, but you do not need to forget the line between the gameplay and the error, often there are quite profitable places in the game that can generate a lot of revenue, but that does not mean that they are game mistakes. Errors is an unforeseen action that is impossible by definition. For example, an increase in the chance of improving weapons without the stipulated reasons for this is a mistake. But buying special things that increase this chance is a game process. In addition, such actions are monitored and punished as they are found on almost all game servers.
Everyone who has a desire and not a large starting capital can organize his game server.
Quite right, it can organize, release on the Internet, too, since this will require minimum costs, but larger amounts will be needed to make the server more visited and stable. In addition, do not forget about the competition. Creating your server requires not so much money investment as much free time and a strong desire to go forward, fall, get up and go ahead again, no matter what. Because it is not so easy to struggle with already known competitors and you need to be prepared for everything, even to the fact that efforts and funds will be wasted.
You can select a server to play on a site with a rating.
Quite a good way, although on some servers and give special incentives for voting, which leads to a more intensive vote, but this method is still pretty good and productive. Still, there is written basic information about the server, such as the platform, chronicles, reductions and so on.
