Well I tried to give this game what was probably the third or fourth try, being optimistic everytime...
But heres the thing, the game has gotten better, but the company and the community has not.
The devs are obviously not very great. Rubberbanding, lag back again (something randomly broke, some are saying it's fixed, but haven't tried it since)
Then just look at how they are tightening up forum moderation prior to a xpac release, it kind of shows how confident they are in the stability of an expansion. People complaining still about the rubberbanding/desync that was present in beta! Now, it is obvisouyl a completely different type of monster, but the fact that it still exist in some form is just ridiculous from a consumer stand point. And their is also a lot of other broken things in-game that i'd rahter not bother to go into because...
Get past all of the bugs, and technical shortcomings of the devs, and the game is horridly unbalanced. The combat, certain materials, certain weapons, ect. just unbalanced into irrelevance. The game becomes very limited because of it.
Then, to make it worse, the community in this game is kind of horrible. Like worse than wow horrible. Because at least in wow, all the d-bag immature griefers didn't have the tools to really just ruin everyones experience and then have the man-sac to call it roleplaying.
Everyone in the game is evil, whether they roleplay or just call themselves pvpers, that is the role they are playing relative to what the laws of a realistic midevil world would be(which is what the game aims to be but lacks the ability to portray). But heres the problem, there is no good guys in the game. If you try to be, your basically outnumbered entire server to one. If you try to be good, and end up crossing one guy who was doing something bad so to speak, they will basically run to their guild, tell on you, and now your an enemy of the area (it happened to me multiple times, a friend, and a trial member who just quit the game instead of relocating)
In all my time playing, I was the only person I saw ever helping trial members, providing them jobs, armour, protection, ect. What was everyone else doing? Killing them at pig spawns, stealing their stuff, tricking them to go grey, thunderlashing them thro newbie protection if they had it... ect, and their excuse? The game is suppose to be a realistic midevil fantasy world, and real worlds are dangerous. Well, real worlds aren't that dangerous because people are also suppose to be protecting, not destroying all the time.
The community has basically devolved into darkfalls community which is really a shame. After having multiple bad expereince in this game and darkfall, it turned me against full loot ffa, because it really does attract so many d-bags that can't handle the responsibility of a rpg "living world". It seems like it just attracts sociopathic behavior like a magnetic, and people can't handle the freedom.
