Two hundred years ago, the Betrayer, Shiro Tagachi, transformed the lush continent of Cantha into a devastated landscape of stone forests and crystalline seas. Now, in a land torn asunder by war, who you fight is as important as who you serve. While Kurzicks and Luxons battle for ever-decreasing resources, a horrible plague threatens the very existence of an empire still reeling from the betrayal that nearly destroyed it two centuries earlier.

Join with players from around the world to battle for the future of Cantha—a complex empire dominated by bureaucracy and strife, living under the shadow of an ancient evil.

Every day you come home from work or school, tired, bored, stressed, and what a better way to relax than a few hours spent in the world of your favorite MMORPG? You like your mighty paladin/mage/rogue/etc., doing some quests, hunting, maybe an instance or two. Everything is great until you suddenly crash into those annoying things that exist in very game: bugs, annoying people you know, that stuff that makes you throw the PC out the window.Official vs Private MMORPG servers - Ever since computer games rocked our world there were certain individuals out there who were not willing to pay for it. The industry tried by any means to stop them. They ranged from simple methods of CD check or unique serial numbers to more complicated methods like DRMs or items needed to finish the game which came along with the original game box. The more they tried, the less results they got. Games were and always will be pirated, unless of course, the perfect security system is invented. But when all seemed to be lost a hero came forth... the MMORPG!Real Life VS MMORPGs - Are MMORPG Games your life or do you prefer the real thing?Grinding: Love it or Hate it - Is grinding your favorite hobby in MMORPGs?Permanent death in MMORPGs - Is this a feature we should see more often?Canceled MMORPGs that would have rocked! - Some were canceled during the MMORPG beta stage, others didn't even get there
