Active Time Battle System Preview - Myth War 2 - MMORPG.com

IGG has published an overview at the ATB, or Active Time Battle, turn based combat system in Myth War II.

As is known to all, the battle system is one of most important elements in a turn based online game. However the battle systems in traditional turn based online games is kind of boring because you always need to wait for your turn to take an action. Today the Myth War (http://mw2.igg.com/) team is going to introduce the world’s first unique ATB turn based battle system to you.

The full name of ATB is “ACTIVE TIME BATTLE”. There is actually an ATB bar on your game interface during a battle.

When a battle is triggered, the ATB bar starts to accumulate energy. You can’t take any actions until the ATB bar is full. Neither can your enemies (monsters and players). This is totally different from the traditional turn based battle system. The ATB system requires you to make quick and wise decisions in a battle, which makes the battle more exciting and extreme.
