MythicWorld is a Massively Multiplayer Online Living Roleplaying Game (MMOLRPG). "Living" games are those designed to kill a player irl should they experience in-game death. The game is played in 5 countries – The US, UK, China, Japan, and New Korea. While the game is played on a shared server over many countries, all players are able to understand each other when speaking their native tongue thanks to built in translators.
Each country that hosts players in MW is only permitted 2,000 participants. Those who wish to take part must undergo a strict application process and physical evaluation. In the US alone over 6 million people apply annually. Participants of previous MW seasons must also have attained a prestige ranking in at least the top twentieth percentile to be considered for future seasons.
