Ok, the first thing I have to say about this mud is that it is NOT a DBT clone. Not in any way, EXCEPT, it's made by the man himself, Iovan.
Now that that is out of the way... DBAT is beyond indepth. You literally control the battle by each punch, kick, or ki blast. Every round is at your fingertips, because there is no auto attack of any kind. You want to punch? Punch. You want to thwack some Saiyan thug with a club? Go right ahead. How about decapitating someone with a well placed Kienzan? That one is my personal favorites, because I can pick up the head afterwards and throw it at things... >_> or train my ki by meditating with it. Seriously, I haven't really played any other DBZ mud that gives you the level control DBAT does.
If the mood comes across you, which it has me plenty of times, and you just feel like destroying something, do it. EVERYTHING is destructible. Park benches, statues, armor, even ROOMS. You can literally turn an area into nothing more than a pile of rubble, and who doesn't enjoy that?
One of the coolest things I've seen is when this mob deflected my ki attack, and sent it careening into the corpse of his friend I had killed moments earlier. Let's just say, all that was left was a smoldering pile of goo after that. Not to mention, nothing is more satisfying then grabbing a mob and slamming him into the ground to create a massive crater, which DOES show up on the room desc. for all to see.
Training your stats on DBAT is pretty unique as well. Many things factor into it. Gravity being the foremost. You can actually buy a private ship and install your very own gravity generator to spar/train to your heart's content. When you're done training, you can hop into the pilot's seat and blast off into space to explore. Space is massive and free roaming. You can visit other planets, or explore wormholes. You can even exit your ship and fly around.
The skill system is pretty in depth, with Sensei's that you choose instead of a cookie cutter race/class combination. There's several different teachers to choose from, with most being accessible by any Race. There's also several more trainers that anyone can learn from, depending on alignment. If you've ever played Feudal Realms when it was up, then you'd instantly recognize the PS/skill advancement system.
Every planet I've been to has been in depth and fun to explore, with reputation systems in place for quests, as well as free roaming quests. You better have a keen eye though, because not everything is pointed out or handed to you on a silver platter, which draws you in even more as you search for an item.. or person.
Overall, if you want a unique mudding experience with a few goody but oldy things tossed in... then this is the perfect mud for you. RP all the time, friendly players, and a fair staff make DBAT #1 in my book.
