AvP is a mud that gets updated and improved often.
I first logged onto AvP 4 years ago. Lots of people warn about the
steep learning curve at AvP - that is true. AvP describes itself as
'newbie friendly' on its listing here, but that is absolutely
untrue. What makes gameplay at this mud a steep learning curve is
their lack of sufficient helpfiles and newbie-friendliness.
Upon creating a character, I moved around the mud trying to figure
things out on my own as all my questions were ignored by both staff
and players. I gave up and stopped playing after a week.
Two years later I decided to try the mud again. Many things had
changed except for the attitudes of the staff and players. I've been
logging onto AvP now and then to see what has been going on - constant
updates make it an interesting place to play at.
One update months ago outdated a container I was carrying and
switched it to 'an official AvP 'temporary container''. I'm not
able to drop it or sell it or trade it in. Everytime I log onto the
mud (about twice a month) to ask how to get rid of it, I'm ignored.
In fact, I'm online right now with 5 staff members and 15 players
and they are killing other players and chatting. But all of them
ignored me when I asked what to do about the container.
All in all, full enjoyment of AvP and introduction of fresh blood are
greatly hindered by lack of helpfiles and friendly players. If
you're a player that doesn't care for player interaction and
tutorials on how to play on muds, this mud might be for you.
