I played Salem this weekend, gave it a good 12 hours of gameplay time. I found that it is really lacking in some areas that need to be fixed before release.
The server lag on occassions was bad, but thats to be expected with debugging software running.
The issues I ran into was the lack of a decent tutorial. It took almost 2 hours to figure out how to craft something without going to the SALEMWIKI. And even thats not exactly correct.
The combat system is clunky and omg rough.
Then the random homestead port into the wilderness without anyway to mark where you live on your minimap so you can sort of have an idea where you call home is rediculous. I moved away from my homestead and was completely lost in a matter of minutes. All the landmarks look the same, the minimap cant be scaled and there is no in game map, and again the SALEMWIKI map is well difficult to understand.
Its not a bad game its just rough, REAL rough. All these people worried about open PvP, well that requires a PvPer to get the talent that lets him do it, you cant just attack people right now.
So much crap, so little quality.
