Classless MMORPG

Screen from Classless MMORPG for Category

Most of the modern MMORPG projects follow the safest path, providing their players with a limited amount of roles and classes. However, some of them tend to add some variability to the gameplay. Classless MMORPG doesn't have the class system at all; instead of that, these video games offer an opportunity to form a unique build out of the set of different skills, which can create entirely new roles with unusual gameplay, which is suitable personally for players needs.

More About Classless MMORPG

In most cases, classless MMORPG videogames experiment with the system of character development instead of removing it at all. Even though those games have no classes, the roles in gameplay and their archetypes are still used; you can see completely new mechanics very rare, but they're still in. Many of classless role-playing projects use a flexible system of skills. It has two ways of character development. The first one requires you to use the skill to improve your abilities in it — the more often you perform the action, the higher it's level. It works only for one ability so that you can't use earned skill points to learn another one. In other projects, you can level up your hero with usual EXP and earn skill points, which can be spent on the development. The third way is the rarest one: you have a limited amount of skill points which can be apportioned at the very beginning, and you can't change them during the gameplay.

Classes MMORPG provides players with an opportunity to create a unique build for their hero. For example, many players would like to play as a hybrid is healer and warrior, but this class is scarce for videogames with the class system. The games with a flexible system of skills have no restrictions for their players: you can make the most ergonomic build, create a character with the gameplay role of your dream, or just study all of the possible skills to make a jack-of-all-trades. Remember that the path of the overpowered hero is often quite dull and full of grind, so it's much more interesting to experiment and create something on your taste.
