Full disclosure, I've played this MUD a very long time and am still a very active player.
I wanted to take the time to say that I thoroughly enjoy this MUD to the fullest and recommend it to anybody.
I noticed a lot of people were complaining about the owner and non-helpful players, but I have to strongly disagree. The mud has a very active forum for suggestions and even during play, the social channels have always been considered for suggestions and feedback. And a 'Newbie' channel has even been implemented for the veteran players to help out new players.
The mud is constantly growing, updates seem to come in by the week. The player base is the most consistent and active I've seen on any DBZ mud, and most MUDs in general. I think a MUD that sees more than 25 or 30 players stick around for nearly 10 years each is saying something in itself. That being said, new players should not get the idea that these veteran players will curve the MUD in a way that you will not be relevant. DBE recently implemented a 'Casual' playing type for new players to learn the MUD and obtain a 'relevant' character quickly, which allows you to participate in A LOT of great end-game content such as boss runs, quests, new areas of the MUD, and obtaining some of the rare equipment. The 'Casual' system is great for learning and getting used to the MUD before venturing in to the traditional playing style that will really allow for a competitive, more challenging experience.
I like to point out that DBE is DBZ THEMED, not a DBZ strict world. It is an EVOLUTION based on the ideas of the DBZ world, allowing us to create our own world and enjoy the true MMO feel of the game. DBZ gives us a foundation for the world and characters, and if you decide to participate in role-playing, the 'evolution' allows you to make a path of your own, not having to abide by the story of DBZ.
The fighting system is very fun, and at lower levels you may find yourself 1-hitting a NPC or two, but at the higher levels, you find yourself in large, strategic battles against common mobs, boss mobs, and even other players. The PK system is great and offers a lot of rewards and entertainment for participation, and even allows for entire group fights or clan battles if the situation arises.
Again, all of these thoughts are coming from an avid player that has had a lot of fun and enjoyment from the game, but I think this is a very short list of the perks found in DBE. Definitely give us a shot if you're looking for a MUD, and if you decide to create a character make sure you let me know (my character is Nail), I'll be glad to welcome you to the game.
See you around, Nail
