@jetah said in What sets Fractired apart from other MMORPG’s?:
i do like the minecraft system where you start with nothing and have to punch stuff to get materials then craft a tool to get more materials... etc.
Oh, yes, that was one of the things I really liked about Tibia.
Even if you had everything in your bank and item storage taken away, and were stripped naked, you still could go into sewers, punch some rats to death, buy the most basic weapon, and climb the equipment ladder with no problems at all.
(Not that you ever had any reason to do that, or the
"halp i was hacked all my items were stolen give gold gib itens pomuuuusz pls pls pls"
crowd cared, mind you.)
Compare that to, say, Maple Story or Guild Wars 2 where you can't even attack if you have no weapon, forcing you into some sort of technical pacifism and possibly awkward combat-by-abilities-only. Good luck with mana regeneration and/or cooldowns on that one, though.
(Not that you would ever loose your weapons in these games, mind you.)
