The Types in MMORPG

 

124a808b6535706ba9919938b246f135

I have been thinking of this since long time ago. Wondering how we can identify the type of MMORPG  (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Play Game) players based on their class and the way they interact with others.

ISFJ: The Cleric

It might sound stereotypical but ISFJs are good at taking care of others and taking part as the supports who heal and cast spells that strengthen the other players. Their dominant Si also help them in thinking about how to carefully keep everyone safe. They won’t let you die twice, though.

ISTJ: The Sniper

Si and Te respectively with Fi as the tertiary function make ISTJs extremely meticulous and logical strategists as well as sharpshooters. They are very potential in deciding who and where to shoot by observing the weakness of the enemies. Relying on what can they learn from the external logic and the past, they won’t let a single arrow miss the target.

ENTJ: The Summoner

ENTJs are natural commander and strategic leader. Their dominant Te makes them an adept observant on what’s surrounds them. Thus, ENTJs are great in deciding which monstrous creatures to be deployed in a battle field and controlling them to defeat the enemy, or even taking control over the enemy as well.

ENFJ: The Paladin

They won’t let people they care about hurt or die miserably. Protecting and healing their comrades and sticking on the justice are what ENFJs would gladly do and they are dying to do so. It obviously suits the role of a fearless Paladin who is both a healer and a tanker at the same time.

ENTP: The Rogue

Tricky, agile, can be so quiet and loud as they please, always seek for possibilities in any situation, and full of crazy unpredictable ideas. ENTPs are surely an unpredictable and cunning ‘blade in a crowd’. They do not like orders and rules. They can hide anywhere you’ve never imagined. You didn’t see  them coming until the dagger is slitting your neck.

ENFP: The Hunter

Ne dominants value freedom. Hence, ENFP, as ENTP is, is a soloist who tend to go on hunting and killing others individually or in a small group with no compulsion of following rules or orders. ENFPs gladly learn new things and tend to observe their surrounding to connect it with their inner values. Making them incredibly innovative and capable in using any kind of weapons, traps, even poisons.

INTJ: The Witch Doctor

Genius, very genius and vicious. You do not ask for mercy to INTJs during a PvP. You will die before you know it. INTJ will kill you without making any unnecessary movement because they have gone ten steps ahead when you launch your first attack. Good luck in negating the dark magic.

INFJ: The Priest

Along with the ISFJ on the back-line, INFJ are they who heal not only phisycal wound but also depressed morale. Their charisma boosts the confidence of their comrades as well as intimidates the foes.

ISTP: The Craftsman

Turning any scraps into valuable and useful equipment is what ISTP naturally expert at. Instead of hunting monsters to level-up, ISTPs tend to hunt for what they can find and what they can make out of their loots.Thus, sometimes mining and digging soil is interesting to find materials.

ESTP: The Mercenary

Two-handed sword, twin swords, a sword and an axe, war-hammer or even a scythe are some possibilities of ESTPs’ weapon of choices. They do not like something mainstream and they are good at taking advantage on their talent. Exciting quests and epic battles are what they always seek as they have no fear.

ESTJ: The Knight

ESTJs are they who fight side by side with the ENFJs on the front line. If their paladin comrades tend to defend the line behind wide shield and battle flail while making sure no one gets horribly hurt, the knights are they who thrust and push the enemy by slaying them with their sword or spear while at the same time trying to take control over the brutallity of ENTP, ENFP and ESTP. Their interest is on organizing the mess and sticking to moral values.

ESFP: The Jester

Cheerful and very provocative during the game. Using handy and practical tools as their weapon is what ESFPs more likely to do. Their uncontrollable happiness might sometimes annoy other classes especially the knights, the witch doctors and the summoners.

ESFJ: The Guardian

ESFJs plays to protect and bear others’ burdens on their shoulders. You might say no, ESFJs, but you cannot ignore a lower level player who is chased by a monster. They stand on the same line as the paladins and the knights to protect both of them.

INTP: The Alchemist

The very curious nature of INTPs makes them very potential in creating such lethal formula to perish their enemy or even powerful elixir to support their fellows. INTP and ISTP work together may produce super rare and deadly weapon.

ISFP: The Blade Dancer

The strong extroverted sensing collaborating with the dominant introverted feeling make ISFP a curious player who is always excited to try new things. Combining swordsmanship and the elegance of dance is what ISFPs more likely to be interested in for they have a very strong desire and passion on arts.

INFP: The Druid

INFPs seek for harmony and value. More than that, they are surprisingly energetic and also very creative. Their extroverted intuition also help them in observing and expanding different possibilities. Thus, using the power of nature and some elemental spells to create strong variations of chaining attack and build impenetrable defense might suit them well.

After all, those are seen from the perspective of ENTP. Cheers.

With or Without ‘Video’, Gaming is Gaming

maxresdefault

I have been 123 days surviving in this Incredible Land. During that more or less four months, I only played shitty mobile games, which I have uninstalled, accidentally played truth or dare in the middle of the night, and sadly playing cards against humanity without any real cards. I played it online, with strangers, though. Apart from the desperate efforts to kill my boredom, I am recently interested in another form of game which has been known and played far before the term ‘video game’ was popular.

I am thinking of having some board games once I come back home. The excitement was so great that I have started watching some review videos since two months ago and now I have the list that I will share to you.

Game of Thrones

 got-board-game.jpg

Based on a very popular series written by George R.R. Martin, this  game takes place in the massive lands of Westeros. The players will take roles of the houses of the Seven Kingdoms, trying to seize the Iron Throne and ruling the Westeros by arranging effective strategies via diplomacy or battle. It is highly possible that some players build an alliance to defeat other players. Game of Throne: The Board Game is rated 7.8 in Boardgamegeek.com Should you need further details, kindly check the video below.

Blood Rage

Rated 8.2 in Boardgamegeek.com, Blood Rage is a thematic strategy board game with the setting of ancient Norse when Ragnarok has come and the end is near. The players will take control over different Viking’s clans in the apocalyptic battle to secure their places in Valhalla. Blood Rage comes up with exquisite figure arts and wide possibilities for characters and clans upgrades. A link to an unboxing video and a review video are attached below.

Scythe

Scythe takes place in an alternate historical timeline of 1920s in Eastern Europa. The game focuses on a city-state called The Factory which produces deadly massive war machines that the players try to claim by conquering territories, enlisting recruits, farming, building structures and activating mechs. Scythe is rated 8.4 in  Boardgamegeek.com and the idea of monstrous mechanical weapon is very intriguing. Check out the unboxing and review video below.

Conan

The other three are focused on strategic aspect on developing clans, kingdoms, cities, conquering territories and winning wars which make the players will more likely to play roles as a leader. Meanwhile, in Conan, you are given options to take control of one out of several heroes including Conan himself or as an evil overlord to hinder Conan and his comrades reaching their goals. There are lots of  maps that open lots of scenarios in this board game. Personally, I badly want to have this. Deadly badly want to have after watching the unboxing, rules and review videos. 8.4 in Boardgamegeek.com, 9.0 in my mind.

Mythic Battles: Pantheon

Mythic-Battles-Pantheon-Box.jpg

9.4 is the rating of this game in Boardgamegeek.com. Imagine how epic would it be. The game sets up in the ancient Greek mythology where Gods and Titans were fighting. The players choose their mythological Gods to play along with mythical creatures and also legendary warlord and demi-gods. I haven’t got much information about this game, but I think Mythic Battles: Pantheon is super exciting. However, I got the video of the game rules and a short video of its component looks.

Anyway, I personally think that playing board game will bring you different sensation of multiplayer compared to the one in video games. Though it is tough to understand the rules and mechanism at the beginning and it is even tougher to tidy the mess up after playing, but board games are surely worth to play. Well, I think I need to start saving money. Cheers.

ENTP in Video Games: We Don’t Heal, We Destroy Things and Kill People

It has been around four months for me struggling in this country. Soon I will face my first semester exam which means I am a quarter way done (sighing deeply). Anyway, I suddenly got hit by the fact that I have not played any video game for about four months and it brought good-old-days-memory storm to my mind. I used to play lots of video games especially RPG and MMORPG back then. I played MOBA too, though! Thus, questions came up: What is ENTPs’ most favorite class type in video games? Does our type influence our choices? I started to open the old files in my brain and found some dusty memories of video games that I have played and classes I chose. One thing, as long as I remembered, I’ve never played as priest or any supportive classes. Anyway, here they are!

Ragnarok Online (2003-2005)-Assassin

Character_Assassin.jpg

Stealthy, deadly, undetected and highly agile were the most features that I sought when I played Ragnarok Online in late 2003. For those reasons, I chose to play as thief which was later evolved into rogue then assassin. I think until now, the idea of killing people without being detected and the use of blades and katar are still very interesting to me. Even Assassin’s Creed is still one of my favorite franchise.

Rising Force (2005-2008)-Armor Rider

20070329200635461.jpg

When the game was released, as usual, I looked for any stealthy class with dagger, hidden blades or anything related to assassin. Unfortunately, there was no such things in RF online. The stealthy assassins were replaced by rangers with rifles and I was not interested for the reasons I did not know. Thus, following my next obsession of Gundam, I chose Armor Rider from The Bellato Union. Evolved from Specialist which was similar to Craftsman or Smiths in other RPG, Armor Rider use two types of Massive Armor Units, Goliath the melee gorilla and Catapult the one with canon and heavy machine guns.  I turned from a silent undetected killer into a notorious pilot with his giant robots who kills other races.

Defense of The Ancient (2004-2011)-Moghul Khan (Orc- Berserker)

mogul_khan_axe_dota_2_art_94778_1920x1200.jpg

I do not know how it was started but I turned into savage when I played DoTA several years ago. Instead of Riki or Mortred who are obviously stealthy and agile, my favorite was Axe, a tanker. That was the first time I enjoyed playing video game as a tank. Probably because Axe is a unique tanker with counter helix that deals damages as he gets hit by the enemies. A tank with auto-counter attack. He is untouchable.

The Elder Scroll V-Skyrim (2012-Now)-Stealth Archer

663346-1376566445.jpg

I turn my back into stealthy killing machine again, but now it comes with ranged weapon which makes me more difficult to be detected. Playing as archer in Skyrim is so much fun. You will enjoy killing various kinds of creatures in the universe from bandits to giants from distance. Watching them figuring out where the hell the arrows come from and finally die miserably. Further, you will be able to kill enemy with single shot which is good and bad. It is efficient but you don’t get lots of chances to develop your light armor ability. Overall, archer is lots of fun.

I tried to remember if I ever played as any kind of supportive class such as Cleric, Priest or any kind of healer but I have no memories about being someone who heals and gives lots of buff. Thus, I guess ENTPs are not interested in playing as support. We either stealth, go berserk, or deals an instant kill attack. I thought I have also played as Wizard for short period of time. How about you guys? What’s your class preference in video game?
