What are MMORPGs?
A Massive(ly) Multiplayer Online Role-playing Game or MMORPG is a multiplayer computer role-playing game that enables thousands of players to play in an evolving virtual world at the same time over the Internet. These games only work with an internet connection and are completely played online
How does it work?Players run a client (game files installed on their pc) an d connect to Game server (A3). This allows the users to log into a virtual world. The virtual world continues regardless of who is logged in or not. When a player logs in, they are represented in the game world by a graphical representation of the character they play. The players are allowed to shape their own experience by providing multiple (or customizable) characters that the player can use.
Once a player enters the world, they can engage in a variety of activities with other players who are accessing the game the same way from all over the world.
Most MMORPGs run several identical copies of the virtual world, called "shards", "sub-worlds", "continents", "servers" or "realms", that the player can choose from. In the case of A3 we presently have only one server - Redyan
