Today I became a citizen!

   Posted by: Tycho

More than 2 years of playing for free and today I belong to Westland City! The game was just a game a few years back…kill or be killed…steal or be stolen!

Today I became a citizen of Westland to belong to a city where you prove your worth and contribution.I remember that era when all DW players have to fight for Westland against Trolls and that time when we all do our part to revive Wizard Afrix! Today I become a citizen to be useful as a citizen of a city.

Nothing more worth than to be part of a community in a game. I started enjoying this game to be able to do something for a city. Today I am a citizen!

Testimonial and Review by – Fury_RedMoon

   Posted by: Tycho

I’m a 36 years old lady that likes painting, reading, going out with friends, working out and dancing. I’m a travel agent and I live in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

I started playing Dark Warriors when I was going throw a very difficult personal and economical crisis in my life, and I suddenly went from having a lot of time out of the house to stay at home a bunch of hours.

Dark Warriors was the first Online Text Based Game that I joined. Until that moment, I wasn’t even a big internet fan. But one day, I clicked by chance on an advertisement on Facebook that took me to Dark Warriors, and I discovered a whole new world.

My first idea was that the game could help me to improve my english, because my original language is spanish, and my english was completely out of practice. So I first stayed at the game for that reason, but at the beginning I was too shy to go to chats or post at public forums. I felt that people could laugh about my terrible english.

Luckily I joined a very friendly clan, The Saints Empire, which helped me to make very good friends and to learn a little more about the game, and I got hooked by it. Later I felt confident enough to start talking to people at chats, and I became Game Helper. From there, it was a one way route that took me to the Admin position at most of OGN Games, and Head Admin at one of them.

I keep thinking that the best fact about Text RPG Games, is that they give you the opportunity to use your own imagination, that is one of the best and extraordinary tools that we have.

The other amazing thing about this Text MMORPG, is the Game Community, that is formed by people from all over the world, with different ages and economical and social levels. That big mix would be a big mess at real life… but somehow, there is a balance and a positive coexistence between people inside the game. I keep finding that inspiring and it makes me think that the world can be better.

What makes a good browser game

   Posted by: Tycho Tags: ,

You can analyze browser games by thousands of different factors to determine the good browser games from the bad. However there are some important things to consider before signing up for the latest and greatest browser game that everyone is playing. I am going to list some of the topics that I would rate a good browser game at and let you be the judge.

A good browser game has – Community
Don’t just go for the biggest game you can find, and don’t play a super popular game if you don’t like competition. The larger the community the harder it will be to get to the top. Apart from mass amounts of players is the quality of the players. Do you want to be around players your own age or do you prefer younger players? These are all very important things to consider.

A good browser game has – Staff/Developers
If you decide to be a paying player you will want to be able to contact a developer sooner then later to have your issue resolved. Even for reporting bugs and errors you want to make sure that there is enough staff to handle your issues. Among various other things if you are seeking a well moderated community, check into the rules and guides for what ‘goes’ and what doesn’t.

A good browser game has – Server and Programming Quality
Does the game run on quality servers? This is usually a good indication as to the knowledge and resources that a good browser game may have. If you are frustrated to the point where it takes a few seconds to load a page then you should consider moving on or talking to a developer about it. No game is fun to play if you have to wait 10 seconds between page loads!

A good browser game has – Gameplay
You can have a great game but without the above items in check even the best game play wouldn’t be any fun. A good browser game has a great mix of game playing styles that will appeal to everyone and not just the PVP players or the economy kings. You want to find a good browser game that has created a fun environment for all types of players and not just one aspect.

I think the cool thing about playing a text based RPG game is that there are people from all over the world coming together and interacting. It is truly a global community.

There are people of all ages, I mean how often do teenagers hang out with people in their 40′s in real life, but here they do. Similar to real life where people have different personalities and lifstyles, in this text based RPG game Dark Warriors people have different activities they like more than others, some go hunting in the dark forest a lot while some play mostly PVP. You can even play chat quiz or hop into in local chat, some are on the water fishing and attacking in their ships. For myself I like building my outpost and mining. There is so much to do and so many people to meet.

Text RPG Game review – Serbitar

   Posted by: Tycho

I have been playing Dark Warriors a text rpg game for almost two years now, I am not the richest or the strongest. Despite this I find myself drawn back to my computer every night I walk in from work, even getting out of bed earlier to log in which makes me miss my morning coffee. Which anyone can tell you is as serious for me as losing a limb.

So If I dont think of myself as the strongest or the richest in this text rpg game, what is it I keep returning for? The simple answer is the players, Staff and Developers of this game are by far the greatest group of people I have met on an online game. Other players are always around to enjoy a joke with, or even there to continue a good rivalry. Whether its Combat in Upper Ven, the battle ground of Dark Warriors, or having my Outpost invaded by the same guy every revive, my day would not be complete without it.

Uniquely this text rpg game offers a direct link to Staff and Developers through forums and chat, giving you a feeling that you are shaping the world around you, so join me in the local chat and we can have drink.

Text MMORPG Review – Duke_Graywind

   Posted by: Tycho

I have been playing this Text MMORPG called dark warriors for less than 1 year now. I know thats not long. There have been a lot of changes throughout the days since I began my journey. Most of the updates are good and if I am not happy with them I just say ‘ Just get on with it’.

The thing I really like about this text mmorpg is the NEW westland. As this game becomes more fun and better it makes the combat even more exciting.

The part which annoy me is when players can spend alot of money on this game (I spend a little)…lol. Looking at the bright side of things, I have made many friends on this text mmorpg which have helped me on my way.

To make things even better. I don’t know of any other game that lets you talk, play and learn from staff and the owners. Its good that they come into chat and are very active. Also I would like to thank the helpers,staff, game moderators,game developers and any others I have missed for creating a great text mmorpg which all ages can love and play together.

Here, we learn to help each other either mentoring or by sharing resources like gold.

This text mmorpg dark warriors is always changing and improving. I will stay here for a long while then leave when I get old.

I have been playing this free text based game for more than 2 years now. There have been a lot of changes through out those years. Most of them are good and I am happy with it.

The thing I really like about the game is the combat. After working hard for the day, I like to log in and kill some players. It releases my stress and some what make me feel a bit powerful. Then I will look at my gold and feel good about it. Where else I can have millions of gold? Surely not in real life.

The part which can really annoy me is getting killed…lol. I know, its a PVP free text based game so it will happen eventually. Looking at the bright side of things, this aspect of game play pushes me to better the way I do things in the game and improve my game strategy.

Furthermore, who can deny the fact that we can meet players from almost all part of the world and with different age group as well. Making friendships with those remarkable players will constantly motivate me to play the game.

Here in Dark Warriors a free text based game, we can learn to help each other. Its the thing that I learned in real ife called ‘Esprit De Corps’. (referring to the morale of a group.)

The ever changing secrets which the game holds always rekindle my interest. It challenges me to further my experience within the game.

Unlike the boring updates you might get on another Online Text Based Game we have written a report of some of the latest updates we have made recently.

Online Text Based Game Update – Equipment Damage:
Some of your inventory items now take damage, Only items with a power higher than 10 can take damage. You can repair your items from your ‘Overview’ window. Damaged weapons will lose power in combat.

Online Text Based Game Update – New Westland:
After many years of the same Westland city page, we have released a whole new slew of updates with this one. The new Wesland Cup challenge can earn you some extra goodies for defending your city from attacking marauders.  You also can request your clan to purchase the title of land from each city, these titles will always change and offer every clan member benefits they normally would miss out on.

Online Text Based Game Update – Serf Costs:
Serf costings have been updated so they better reflect the economy.

Online Text Based Game Update – Demon Eggs:
This new update is pretty impressive. As you wander around westland you will find Demon Eggs, you are able to incubate and hatch these eggs. As a Demon follows you through your journey it will gain experience and boost your ability points. You are able to swap demons out for different boosts depending on your strategy you wish to play.

I know sometimes change can be difficult for some regarding an online text based game. And for those who would rather not have these updates I ask you to hang on and wait because we are always updating Dark Warriors! You never know what will happen next! We have found out that about 95% of our community loves and thrives on these changes and we are pleased to bring them to you.

Thanks for playing Dark Warriors,
Tycho

There are quite a few advantages of playing an Online Text Based Game that you may not be aware of. When we were all young if we are human, we have played ‘pretend’ with inanimate objects. Sometimes the best toys were the ones that didn’t do anything. Often I find my son playing with the box that a toy came in instead of the toy itself.

Does that seem odd? We as humans have a great mind to enjoy things and to be creative with our imagination. This imagination can allow us to paint realistic images that are often better then something we have seen on a wall or in person. This ability to imagine is one of the keys of playing an online text based game. No, we don’t have the best graphics and we are not using the latest directx but better then all of that is your imagination.

When you are surrounded in an intense graphical 3D game it is easy to become swept away into the game if it is built well. However you can never go beyond the boundaries of that game that it was programmed with. When you play an online text based game you can cross boundaries and create new ways to play. This takes skill, imagination and hard work. All things that you will gain in life.

You can Role play unlike any other game when you play an online text based game. Since the world is endless you can let your imagination run your character. As long as you are not cheating you can play these games anyway you want. You can create a persona of a mighty warrior or a humble financial wizard.

There is pretty much an online text based game for everything you could imagine. If you are into space exploration you can try Starwake the Free Space Game. If Space isn’t your thing and you like jungle adventures you can try Jurassic Jungle. If you like Dragons and Swords check out Wardor. Of course if you like just plain medieval combat and an ever expanding world the you have to play our best Text Based Game – Dark Warriors!

With a little searching you can find exactly the online text based game you want to play.

Stop shooting endless zombies and start using your brain!
