[MMORPG] A3india!!

Been subscribed to A3india since June 2006. That's about the biggest MMORPG in India with a registered gaming population of about 150,000 gamers.

I took a 9 month hiatus from the game and only played sporadically in between. Today, I broke the level 60 barrier and well.... Now, I'm dying to hit level 73.

I remember when I first started playing, It was hell just trying to survive without dying in seconds. Of course, I had no help from friends since no one I knew played the game. Today, I can hold off an entire Mob of creeps for hours and still live to tell the story. Of course, there's a helluva long way to go. I guess level 160 is the limit, but one can't really say..

My first target was to hatch my Shue (That's a little birdie that endows the owner with a boost on his skills and stuff.). Soon enough, I realized my Shue was absolutely worthless since it had no properties whatsoever. So I bought a new one which had some options. Unfortunately, my tastes change often and I've run through eight Shues so far. The earlier ones were pathetic. But let's see what the future has in store for me. :)

Just last week, I happened upon the wonders of a part of the game that I have so far been avoiding. Monster Races! :o) You can bet on these doggies see.... They run around a track and you can bet on which one will win. You can earn tons of Woonz (or Wz. That's cash, or in-game money.) this way if you bet intelligently. And well, Wz is mighty important! You can buy armour, weapons, Shues, Rings, Necklaces, and what not....

Anyhow, the entire game is like a complete ecosystem of sorts. As you climb the rungs of your profession, you become more and more powerful. You gain Magical Powers, Strength, Dexterity, Skills, and Lore. How you manage all the attributes is completely up to you, and that's where the beauty of it all is so evident. :o) The formulae that manage the balance of the entire gaming world is almost beyond comprehension. At the end, it all boils down to coolness. :o)

You guys might wanna check out the game sometime. Playing is absolutely free till you're level 30, so you have ample opportunity to fumble your way around and stuff. :o)
Need help with the game or having a tough time levelling up, I'm always willing to lend a helping hand. :o)

Why does the name 'Samangel' sound familiar to me? Obviously something related to what you said or wrote or something.. wait, what was the woman's name in that dream of your's (the one on guywise)? It was Samantha, right?

Gosh!! :) You're terribly slow..

But faster than the rest of the crowd I notice. Yup, you got it right gurl!

It's a blend of Sam(antha) + Angel. Bet you did'nt notice the Angel.. ;o)

What are the graphics requirements...? Will a laptop do?
Also how much do you have to pay after level 30?

Absoultely! I use a factory-equipped Acer TravelMate 2410 with only 256MB of DDR2 RAM.

I run it off a WiFI connection. (Linksys 54G Router, and inbuilt Broadcomm PCI Card)
1.5 GHz Celeron-M processor with 1MB L2 Cache

And it runs just fine. :)

I'm upgrading my DDR2 from 256 to 2GB this week so I can multi-task while I play the game. Currently, I can't multi-task without the game taking a hit.

The stuff quoted by the website:

Min: CPU P-III 600MHz / RAM 256M
Recommended: CPU P-III 1GHz / RAM 512M or higher
Graphic Cards Supported:
Nvidia Series
Geforce Series or
Riva TNT Series orhigher
ATI Series
Radeon 7000 Series or higher
3dfx Series Voodoo 4 or higher
Even a 56Kbps net connection will be playable, but it might lag a bit.

As for the rates (beyond level 30):

Have fun! And if you have any queries, feel free to shoot me a message! :)

Oh, and btw, they are launching new reduced rates for account renewal this month. so you might get luckier than I was. :)

I usually take the Rs. 999/- package. It figures way cheaper.
