Well, Anime planet, or AP as it is known to most of the players was
probably the third mud I ever played. I remember the days of 9th
grade, where I would skip classes and sit in the computer lab just to
play muds. Anime planet is one of the reasons I did those things so
willingly. At the start, I was a complete and utter newbie, I didnít
even know how to ooc or anything, this went on for a few weeks, and I
eventually grew tired of it, as no matter what I did, I couldnít get
any higher level.
I played a few other muds, some good some bad, some just plain dumb.
Eventually I came back to Anime planet. On almost all of the muds Iíve
played, there has been some sort of rule breaking done by an immortal
that either worked against me, everyone else on the mud, or caused
problems in some other fashion. Ap is the exception. Although there
have been instances of immortals cheating, I haven't seen one in
years, and all those were quickly dealt with. Iíve quit more than one
mud due to unfairness on the part of the immortals, and Iím glad to
say Iíve never had that problem with anime planet.
The evolution system is more developed than any other mud Iíve
played, having almost countless race and class combinations. Of course
some races are weaker than others, but it all works out in the end,
because the very best races require the most work. However, it does
take a while to fully understand the concepts behind the system, as
there are a massive amount of little things you have to remember. You
have to get mob kills of a certain type to reach your evolutions, and
this is the part I hate about the mud, but I respect its necessity.
Some people can get through whatever amount of kills they need in a
few days, whereas some take months to finish their goals. But, in the
end, when your done going through the grind, it really pays off. Iím
one who believes that the harder the work the greater the reward will
feel, and no other mud gives me the feeling of complete satisfaction
that I get when I get the evolution I shoot for.
The questing system was originally very basic, using the stock
questing system. After years of work, it has been molded by the imm
staff into something truly unique. Iíve played many muds with similar
questing systems, but they either donít give you enough rewards, or
too many rewards. The amount on Anime planet seems to be just right.
The quest equipment is very worth getting, and you will find it very
difficult to level without at least one quest weapon.
Its a very great game, and a excellent time waster, but there are
One of the biggest problems, and a nearly unsolvable one at that is
the PK system. Its simple, and not hard to use, but there are players
with very little to do other than get more powerful on the mud. There
tends to be 2-3 characters that rule the pk system completely, and
everyone else just gets murderized. Its a good challenge to live up to
if you have ALOT of time on your hands, but the pk on this mud seems
like it was made solely for the hardcore player. There are countless
sets of eq, all adding resistances and effects that are good against
one weapon/person, despite the fact that they may be useless against
another. Some people like to go for the highest hp and damage, some
people like to get resistances to everything they can, there are
countless combinations, and none of them is completely superior to the
Another problem Iíve had with this mud from the very start is the
sheer amount of money the old players seem to accumulate. Its madness
when you see someone with a million times more wealth than you, and it
makes you wonder how anyone could have the time to do such things. Its
all legit however, and there are very few get rich quick schemes left
after all the years it has been up.
This mud is a great place to spend your free time, the people on it
are great, there are rules against being a thief and a scammer (That
are enforced extremely well), and its got a great atmosphere. This is
a mud for those of you just looking for a quick gaming fix, and those
who can devote a large section of their lives to something they truly
enjoy. It has it problems, but almost all of them are problems every
mud has, or has had sometime in its run. The fun never really stops
here, and thatís why I love it.
Hit me up if this review is the reason you joined, I might give you
some free stuff and help you learn the mud some.
