    Champions of Regnum boasts some big and enticing features. With Realm vs Realm being its main source of player retention, it aims to bring a huge dynamic player-driven battlefield to the MMO market. With these big goals set in place Regnum strives to achieve a large player base. Unfortunately it doesn’t. Its overall lackluster gameplay, unbalanced systems and chore-like grind make for a mundane and slow-plodding experience. If you’re looking for a Realm vs Realm MMO to play there are plenty of others out there. You’d be much better off playing the older and yet less archaic Dark Age of Camelot.

    Played this game for half a dozen years. The game is pretty old with multiple names in its course. (Regnum Online, Realms Online, Champions ofPlayed this game for half a dozen years. The game is pretty old with multiple names in its course. (Regnum Online, Realms Online, Champions of Regnum) The game was released before 2007 if you played beta. For all these people who haven't really explored the game before should atleast show the decency to search up a wiki page before even commenting. (like this:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regnum_Online)
    However, I will say that most of the comment has some truth to it. Regnum Online is a game that is purely RVR and PVP concentrated. It is a game developed with good idea in mind, from a few people with limited resources. It lacks PVE content to the extent which you cannot even imagine. Thats Right. It means grinding will be long and tedious. Default controls are horrible. (CHANGE IT... LOOK AT THE OPTIONS THE GAME PROVIDES YOU WITH. ESPECIALLY CAMERA AND CONTROLS. DISABLE THAT POINT TO CLICK, LEARN TO USE YOUR MOUSE TO ASSIST YOU IN MORE FLUID MOVEMENT; hold down either of the mouse button to control camera angle or precise character movement) User Interface is not intuitive at all for new players and will take of bit of getting accustomed to. Graphics is nothing close to the modern mmo games out there. And things can get boring when the 'Warzone' is quiet. (ie. bedtime zZzZ) So, why would anyone including myself play this game? (for like... 6-7 years???) Well... this is a game like no other. Once you hit max level (60 atm+Endgame rank called Warmaster for bonus stats and skills), that is when the game really gets fun. Community is friendly and fun once you get to know them a little better (I have become to know many in real life) and diverse. With these people, you get player generated content the game exists for: Realm vs Realm. The game is challenging and will test your mechanical skills as well as your intelligence. The more experience and thought you put in to this game, the more fun it will be for you (once you are higher up in levels). I understand that this is not a game for everyone. But if it is, you will find it more than enjoyable just like myself and many other veteran players you pout over the game yet still cant manage to move away from it. Long live the... game? xD

Be prepared for a long hard grind unless you buy some level up boosters. You should also buy a mount (EUR 5). However, once you become comfortable with the games interfaces and learn how to grind while participating in RvR wars, then the game becomes pretty brilliant. There isn't any other pvp mmo out there like it. The fights are satisfying because you really have to know your skills. The combat balance is good because low level players can still kill high levels. And it isn't buy to win because no matter how much you spend, if u cant fight u will lose. Expand

    CoR is a MMO that is focused around RvR combat. It's is F2P, but it is a rare case, being that it is NOT pay to win. Music is so-so, PvE andCoR is a MMO that is focused around RvR combat. It's is F2P, but it is a rare case, being that it is NOT pay to win. Music is so-so, PvE and "the grind" is pretty boring, and there is no crafting or anything like that. That's fine, if you don't care about that. Where this game shines is in RvR combat. You will see literal armies of people from each faction battling it out to take control of towers, gems, etc. I would suggest just seeing this game for what it is, which is a narrowly-focused RvR game, instead of comparing it to games like WoW. If you want a bit of everything, then play something else.. But if you're looking for massive battles with an emphasis on strategy and teamwork, then you can't beat this game. It's free, so try it out for yourself. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I played this game since beta where it was extremely fun to play, however the company got greedy and started focusing more on making money and improving graphics than improving the game-play and balance.

    The time you have to spend in this game to get to the end level is enormous, specially for new players who don't know the game which will just make it even harder, besides that the game is extremely unbalanced at the moment because ngd rarely touches this part of the game, to them, money is more important then the player experience.

    The first thing you do in this game is grind until you are high enough level to enter the war zone which is an open area accessible through a wall that makes it impossible for the other realms to enter (unless they invade.) When you are high level the grinding doesn't stop though, you still have to grind for money so that you can pay for armor/weapon repairs (and arrows if you're an archer.)

    Even though NGD made a promise that paying players would not have an advantage over non paying players in pvp, this is untrue, paying players has an easier time because they can buy boxes which gives them the items you have to grind for and the chances of getting something good is high, if you can't use it you can sell it to another player for more gold than you can earn by grinding.

    The game focuses on rvr combat though where you have to capture all forts and castles of another faction to be able to invade another realm to steal their crystals, when all crystals have been stolen you can enter the door and talk to a dragon which will grant you a wish, all the people in the cave will vote on which wish they want and democracy will decide in the end.
    One would think that you'd have to use strategy, coordination and skill to invade, but the reality is that the faction with most players online gets to invade another realm.

    TL;DR
    the idea of fighting a big war is pretty fun but will get dull pretty quickly and is not worth the enormous amount of time you have to spend on getting a character to level 60 not to mention the balance is horrible and you have to pay if you don't want to grind once you get level 60.

Options missing. After editing the game.cfg i could change the stuff i want to change. No direct shown methods to change the Resoultion or Keybinding.

    First Quest Kill X of Y started griding the normal way. Graphic is horrible outdated.

    For F2P no go to less options, to less guadiance at the first steps.

    Champions of Regnum is one of THE WORST games I have ever played. In all my life i have never experienced a game as unplayable as this. TheyChampions of Regnum is one of THE WORST games I have ever played. In all my life i have never experienced a game as unplayable as this. They might have mad patches since, but i can safley say this is terrible. The first mission (I was the guys that wear black BTW) you had to kill some roaches that were coming out of a hole and i would swing my sword and it would just miss the enemy. t literally took me 10 mins to kill five of them. I played this for a very short time before realizing this is horrendous. On top of all that the game has a HUGE amount of bugs. Expand

Besides it feeling generations behind, there is a complete lack of humility with everything about this game. From the fake reviews here to try and get the score up, to the claim on their site that this is the best MMO, to the wonky design decisions to change a large quantity of what people are familiar with in MMOs. If you want a better score, make the game for the players. BAD: Graphics, controls (pvp with no targeting? really?), bugs, unfinished. Expand
