Real-Time (RT) and Turn-Based (TB) are the two different combat modes available in FOnline: Aftertimes. Real-Time combat is set as default in cities and all preset map locations. As for random encounters you can choose in options which combat mode you prefer. If someone encounters you, he is forced to fight in combat mode with which you started the encounter.
