Endless Online is a MMORPG. There is no cost to play or sign up. MMORPG is an abbreviation for massive multiplayer online role-playing game.
I have been playing Endless Online for about three months. The Endless Online world is big, but not unlimited. There is plenty of area to explore, and sometimes those areas can be hard to find.
On Endless Online I have been helped, and helped others. I made friends, and met hundreds of people online. I have also been scammed and lied to.
Endless Online has a lot of area to explore. There are lots of secret areas and warps through out Endless Online. There are not to many secrets that it takes you hours to go through them in one area. To me the secrets are perfectly balanced in number.
At first when you do combat in Endless Online, you will get the impression that there is no tactics or strategy. There are many tactics that can be performed while fighting. Endless Online has a fun combat system, even though the artificial intelligence is primitive.
Endless Online suffered from kill steals many years ago. That is when someone takes the last hit on your enemy and claims the prize. Endless Online now has a system that locks the fight to you. If you are the first one to hit the enemy, then the fight is yours. And the prizes are reserved for you when you have the last hit. The prizes stay reserved for about five minutes.
Playing against others.
Unless you go to special areas you can not fight each other. This make Endless Online player friendly. Even though someone hits at your character no damage is done.
You can fight each other in a killing field. These are areas made for fighting each other. The one I will refer to is in the Aeven jail. I walked in there ounce, and got killed at the entrance by another player.
Another place of competition is the Arena inside the castle. There are two main arenas, the red arena, and the blue arena. The Arena is a competition of players to see who stays last. It only takes one hit from your competition to put you out. If you are the last player standing, then you won the match.
Making Money and Items.
There is a crafting engine inside of Endless Online. You gather all the parts needed, and then craft the item. Some items are easy and quick to make. While others can take you days to get the parts.
You can make money by either trading with other players, or selling parts. You get the parts from killing monsters all over Endless Online. These parts are either used for crafting, or selling. You can even trade parts for cash with other players. Take the ant legs for an example. The street value is one thousand gold. If you sold it at the creepy house or Marbles, then you would get about 25 gold for it. It is hard to get because of the competition, and how often the ants drop them.
Socializing on Endless Online.
There are always at least 500 players logged on at ounce. The highest I have personally seen was almost 1000 players. When you walk around Endless Online you will see conversations happening every where. Endless Online is a huge socializing MMORPG.
I have met other adults logged on. There is even a guild for adults called, Older Warriors of Endless Online (OWE). Their first requirement for joining is to be at least 18 years old.
You can create guilds and have large parties. A party is a group of people helping each other. You are grouped by joining or inviting. When grouped you share experience that is made, and can help each other kill monsters.
As with many other online services, I highly recommend your child be supervised while playing this game. I have seen some nasty words and actions being performed on Endless Online. From sexual actions to sexual and very bad words.
Watch out for Scams.
I have been scammed more times, and out of more things then I can count. There are many ways of scamming someone on Endless Online. You will loose your gold or items. Take duplicating for example. I was scammed on this, buy handing over my items to get another in return. The scammer laughed as he walked away.
I was selling items and got scammed. The scammer filled his trade bar all the way up. Because I was scrolling down looking at all the items, he changed the first value. The first value was the gold I needed for the item. It went from 1000 gold, to 1 gold. It was unnoticed as I pushed the accept button.
Because I was scammed so many times playing Endless Online. I gained some wisdom and knowledge on avoiding them in life from playing Endless Online. I am not invincible, but can dodge some nasty deals.
The Bad of Endless Online.
When playing Endless Online you will see and hear about them. They are called speeders. Speeding is a hack that allows you to move faster then you are supposed to. It is cheating and will get you banned. Lots of Endless Online players are annoyed by them.
Speeders can either be good or evil. When I say evil I mean that will do things like block you in, and cause you to get killed. They will steal your kills and do other hurtful things. When I say good I am talking about being helped by them. Speeders have saved my character from getting killed a large number of times.
One last hurtful thing about speeders. I talked with an admin on Endless Online one day. She told me that speeders hurt their server. I think it is the way Endless Online keeps it’s data recorded. For every action I take the server records it on disk. So if I was speeding and moving ten times the normal speed, then the server has to record my movements ten times the normal rate. That goes with the attacks and healing.
The Client Program.
I have had a problem running it in full screen on my machine. My machine is a Pentium D, 2.6ghz, with Windows XP. It has a MSI radeonX300 pci-e graphics card, with 256MB hyper memory. My graphics controller will get reset which sometimes crashes the system. When running the client in windowed mode I do not have the same problems. The client will crash ounce in a while in windowed mode, but no like it does when in full screen.
Endless Online is a very fun game to play. There is no charge to play or sign up with Endless Online. The staff claim it will always be free to play. The only cost you should have is your internet provider. There are plenty of areas to explore, and it is fun to start a new player at level 0.
With this bad economy a free MMORPG is really nice to have.
