Tibia Micro Edition (also called TibiaME or Tibia: Land of Heroes) is an early "massively multiplayer online role-playing game" for mobile phones.

Contents

Tibia Micro Edition was inspired by the online role-playing game Tibia. It was first marketed by CipSoft GmbH only to T-Mobile customers using Nokia 3650 and Nokia 7650 cell-phones. A Java version was released in 2006. Around 50,000 players were registered on the 30 central CipSoft servers which are all located in Germany.

TibiaME is generally free of charge for all mobile users. Players who like to dive into further parts of the TibiaME world can buy a premium account for a fee. TibiaME is especially popular in Eastern Europe and the Far East. In addition to English, TibiaME can be played in German, Portuguese and Malay.

Vocations

In TibiaME there are two different vocations to choose from.

Warriors
Warriors rely on their strength and dexterity which is why they are not very good when using magical weapons. However, they are fearsome in combat and their battle skill increases considerably with every level they gain.

Wizards
Wizards prefer to fight with magical weapons which, whilemore effective than normal weapons, consume mana with every successful hit. A wizard’s battle skill increases only slightly when gaining a level. However, this is counterbalanced by their magical power which far exceeds the limited abilities of the warrior class.

Players

Cipsoft reported having more than 10,000 paid subscribers on August 27, 2009, with over 40,000 active players. [1] In January 2011, 50,000 players were registered on the 30 central CipSoft servers.
