Myth War Online is a 2D free-to-play fantasy-themed MMORPG published by IGG. It is set in a fictional universe inhabited by mythological creatures. Combat occurs similar to old RPG games such as Final Fantasy where a player forms a party (mainly consisting of pets) and each side take turn attacking each other.[1] This style of gameplay is created to appeal to a nostalgic classic RPG players.[2][3] Events and content addons occur every 2 months to meet with player demand.[3][4] As of May 2009, Myth War Online I has had all of its servers shut down permanently due to the sequel of the MMO Myth War Online II. As of June 2013, the game is considered "dead" with only a few dozen players with multiple accounts still clinging on to the game. The chinese servers have also closed, making the english servers the next target.[5]

Gameplay[edit]

Character Races[edit]

There are four different races a player can choose from. Each is unique in its own way.

Humans[edit]

In the game, humans are a fallen tribe. The lives of humans are not affluent and stable. As a result, they have no choice but to do whatever they can even if it means doing something immoral or illegal. Humans are described as smart, reckless, wicked and go-getting.[3]

Centaurs[edit]

Similar to humans, centaurs have a long history and civilization. However, in contrast to the other races, centaurs have a social system whereby the female possesses a higher status than a male. They are prized to be noble and beautiful. Despite their warlike appearance, they love peace and like to live in a quiet environment. Centaurs are born with great agility and have a high intelligence level and low vit.[3]

Mages[edit]

Mages are normally a combination of humans and Centaurs. The race was cursed ever since it existed and was cursed again after they sold their souls to the dark lord. Although many have a deep hatred towards other races, some are intelligent enough to forgive and progress positively.[3][6]

Borgs[edit]

Borgs are half robot-half human. Their vast knowledge of technology is their main form of power.
