Realm of the Mad God is a browser based game and should run smoothly on practically any PC with a updated web-browser.
If you have old hardware or software, you may still be able to play Realm of the Mad God, but your game experience may suffer. For the best gameplay experience, we recommend the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, or Microsoft Edge.
And if you think getting to level 20 and being a 6/8 is good think of instantly dying at oryx ( hes the Final boss but to get him you have to kill as many quest mobs as fast as you can He can to 250 damage so look out)
This is my commentary as an 8/8 white star (my class is wizard) oh yeah my name isnt registered so you cant search me if you try
I consider myself at least decently knowledgeable about the game (having had a 6/8 character and tops and being in a top guild [ 6/8 = 6 stats maxed out of 8 and tops = best equipment]) will address some more serious problems.
Since Kabam has bought the game, there have only been horrid updates (in my opinion) and the game has become much more P2W (such as buying tops in the nexus, and pets). You can get pets normally, but to do so requires much work and feeding compared to people who simply pay money to buy pet food.
I could deal with this, but recently I have been experiencing huge lag spikes which often force me to nexus, and sometimes even kill me. There was even a glitch at one point where invisible bullets could immediatly kill maxed characters.
As for permadeath, it is an essential part of the game, and once you have unlocked all characters it only means that you have just started. Leveling is quite easy as long as you take your time, but people often rush into areas to high level for them and get themselves killed. Leveling with a friend always makes it easier and more fun as experience is shared.
The game is co-op as though you complain about people "leeching of the dungeon" and such, there is always the option to solo a dungeon or rush it yourself (however the fore-mentioned people who wrote the complaint probably wont have the skills to do either and therefore are the real leeches ;) )
Has a "social" element
big variety of things to do
Steep learning curve
Permadeath discourages new players
+ Very fun and addictive
+ Very fast paced
+ A big map and many monsters to fight
+ A good amount of weapons that depend on tiers
+ Fun to play in big groups
- It is pay 2 win ( It doesnt really matter because there is no pvp)
- Its hard to find your friends in game
I know there are more pros than cons but for me its hard to find many cons.
1) no daily chance as in daily spin,daily bonus,etc; even some currency drop from the one of many monsters that can kill you from full hp almost instantly. point is some way to get currency without paying or those stupid give information deals.
2) deadly cc for example a lowly god (slime god) hits you with slow and ur spd is reduce by like 80% instantly try dodging like that in godlands or even worse the confused that switches movement buttons. the problem is that the majority of players (70%+?) dont know how to control it during that state.
3)they refuse to add a way to prevent people from teleporting to you just because they said the game was meant to be cooperating with everyone yet its the complete opposite. plus its more of a way to increase your chance of dying.
4)No quest changing option, like it gives you a lame phoenix quest yet you're probably more interested in a cube god or lost lord but it gives a quest for the closest mid-level god even though you are high level. Even if a prefered event,god,etc is closer than that mid-level god for some it ignores it (probably cause ur farming alone and they dont want that)
- more to be added -
When you get some skill, it becomes a bit too repetitive on the godlands and many dungeons and too hard to solo (and many players are uncooperative and rush through the dungeon only to get the loot).
There is a currency system based on stat-potions which you also get on godlands and in dungeons.
The drop is not random (each monster has a list of items it drops) and you must qualify for the loot by the amount of damage done.
The gamestyle doesn't enforce enough cooperativity.
The graphics is really great. And no matter how skilled you are, you will die at some point and the deaths can be really frustrating and stupid. (YAST or YAAD)*
* Nethack terminology (Yet another stupid death, Yet another annoying death).
So if your looking for a simple retro style mmorpg try it out its definitely worth playing
i give it a 7.5 out of 10
Plz don't reply
It would have been even MORE epic if it was 3D.
I give it a 9/10
