Champions of Regnum
Champions of Regnum is a free to play 3D fantasy MMORPG similar to the subscription-based MMORPG, Dark Age of Camelot (DAoC). Both games have realm versus realm action (RvR), 3 realms to choose from, and similar graphics. Regnum is an uniquely balanced game that allows for both intensely competitive PvP (Player vs Player) gaming as well as deeply engaging PvE (Player vs Environment) gaming.
The first choice a player must face is selecting one of the three realms or nations: Alsius, icy home of the empire of dwarves, Nordos and Utghars; Ignis the desert homeland of the necromancer dark elves, humans and moloks; or Syrtis, the forested peaceful lands where elves, half-elves and Alturians live. Once a nation is chosen, the player may create a character (up to 3 per account) and customize it by choosing its race, gender, hair style and color, stature, etc.
After choosing a realm and race, players go on quests and gain levels in the first two areas. After they have gained sufficient levels, they go to the third area which is called the War Zone, though a specific level is not required. In the War Zone, players can work together in clans or parties to take over enemy forts and castles or to simply hunt down their enemies.
The control of the game is closely related to the western standards of movement scheme that is W, A, S, D. clicks are only used either to target something or initiate the fight and of course starting the menu. Auto run feature is a blessing of for players, by pressing Q they are relieve from extensive walking.
It doesn’t have the prettiest graphics, but the gameplay and combat options are just superb.

Specifications may change during development
Sadly this is not due to a lack of original thought but due to the negligence of the developers. It would appear they have made their money and no longer look to please their audience - the players.
Now, the game is all but dead. Logging in to any given realm on a server that isn't Ra results in the sound of a snapping twig echoing across an empty realm.
It was; quite frankly, one of the best of it's day - the original invasion system and pre-Warmaster updates were much better than current..
"Fashiondum" as some now refer to it has lost it's zeal - no effort is put into developing/improving game mechanics or combat. The linux client has the same bugs that it did 10 years ago.
Rest in Peace Regnum..
As a note - if a company were to buy this out and update the tech, it would be an incredible game today. Sadly it's quit unlikely..
In the beginning Regnum Online was the best PVP game I have ever found, all gear was more or less equal, meaning even if you got magical (green) or epic (blue) the stats gained were minimal so it didn't unbalance the game. There have been 2 great exoduses of players from the game, first in late 2009 and again with the launch of the "Champions of Regnum" expansion. Sadly the game no longer has any semblance of balance, the new head dev has added many instances and an ever growing parade of gear that completely unbalances the PVP in the game as well as taking people from what is supposed to be the focus of RVR PVP, resulting in a massive loss of players.
Right now the only way to play the game if you wanted to for some reason is to play on the South American server Ra. It's a designated Spanish server but there are some English speakers there, the North American server is completely dead and you'd be lucky to find 10 people on at any given time.
-Realm Vs Realm Based Game
-Lots of Cool Skills
-Great Looking Mounts
-Allright Classes (That being Barb,Hunter,Mage And a few more that i dont remember)
-If your a Hunter you Can pretty much Tame Any animal in the game and Send it to attack other player factions
-If you every wanted to take over another Factions Fort? And you like Sending a Huge @ss Dragon at the Wall gates of other Factions? This is the game for You!
-Pay to win(Atleast now it is to my opinion)
-Graphics are not to great
-Not a Very Diverse bunch of Players You will Repetitively see the same players for the rest of your life in this game. And that to me is Kinda boring
-Community Just SUCKS There so unhelpful its insane......
-If you wanna Level up? You gotta be a Right Click Samurai Cus the Grinding in this game Is just Horrid.(Took me about 1k Kills to come from level 60 to level 61 *My God*)
-The Missions Are All Travel here! Now Go across The map here! Now Come all the way back here Boom Mission complete 148 exp gained -_-
-Kinda unfair Since Ignis ALWAYS Summons the Golden Dragon at gets to make the Wish(Im sure im speaking for Sytris and Alsyius when i say that)
Great game 10/100 Would never play again
I think the game will be popular to people who've already found an investment in it - they'll always find something to like about it. New players, who've teethed on the current offerings in the market, will find it hard to believe that this game hopes to stand alongside Lord of the Rings or Rift and the like and be taken seriously.
If it hadn't started the second time around, I would've deleted it straight away. Now I'm giving it a chance.
It is at least an 850meg download and the filesize on computer after installation is at least 3+ gig.
RO is currently my favourite mmo game because i only play mmos for pvp noawadays. Oh and for music by roleplaying a minstrel also (i play lotro). Hm ok RO: Simple graphics, but great and fluid pvp and RvR wars. Combat is straightforward, powers taken from DnD, there is little hacking, class abilities are pretty much balanced and the cash shop doesnt really let you buy OPness. Hm. also regular big 15+vs15+ wars. So its basically everything i could want in a F2P mmo. Maybe when GW2 comes out i could try it but it would be P2P and also GW2 will have balance issues for years. Everything in RO is solved and they are brining out new content too. I would much prefer spending my grind time levellig up a character in a smooth game like RO than a rough game like GW2.
Take this, is the Warmaster's Expansion Video.
