MU (pronounced, "moo") is a combat-based Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG) that allows players to create their own characters, join clans or groups, and battle for prestige and treasure. Although not as widely played in the U.S. as other MMORPGs, millions of Asian and European gamers log onto MU servers every day. With more and more gamers joining MU servers, many players opt to create their own private servers. Private servers give game administrators the ability to choose who gets to play. Creating your own MU server is not for an absolute beginner; nevertheless, MU players with basic and computer knowledge can accomplish the task in a few hours.
