Personally I think it was a good move and they are going about it in a good way.  I'm thinking of subscribing again even :P.

    Yeah, but you gotta take notice, did they fix or attempt to fix the reason it was failing in the first place?

    The game is basicly the same as every other game out there with a alterard targeting system other than that it offer nothing new and it seems to me people are desperatly looking for somthing new than the same game reskinned, so no it doesnt surprise me it didnt get more popular when it went F2P.

    Is this the game where you get rooted to the ground by animations when using skills?

    Not sure what you're talking about. Didn't they just release some player numbers last week? And those were really positive?

    yes, which is a sin in a action based game in my opion.

    honestly im not suprised in the least F2P games tend to focus on more money makers in the cash shop over actual bug fixing and core game play.

    It's a pretty good game until you hit max level. It has the worst end game gearing system I have ever seen.

    Game is nothing special... when a nothing special game goes f2p no one takes notice because its still nothing special..

     

    Not saying its a crap game or anything im sure people enjoy it but the reason people stopped playing or didnt start was not because it had a sub..

    agree.

    i also played it as f2p. nice game but thats all. in EU, gameforge sucks big time. no fixes, no events, no balances, not anything.

    at least it has a real f2p model, but 1 month for me was more than enough.

    I'm not surprised it didn't become more popular here. MMORPG.com ppl only look at new game that aren't out yet because they're going to fix everything and first gen games because that was how  games should be made. Everything that is actually launched in the last 8 or so years ppl just complain about.

    This.  I found that I liked it better than when I first played, but with so many other, better games out, I haven't logged back in in weeks.

    i do beleave i have stated this in another thread but ill say it here to.

    only game no my radar is World of darkness, other wise i have no intrest in anyy MMOs comeing out in the future other then a the ones my frineds are playing, i will still give most a try, but not expecting much.

    right now the games im playing are all a few years old.

    endgame is just too boring. it needs some rading and more pvp option. the alliance pvp, which is goin to be implented soon is a good move but they still need more stuff to do for the pve'ers. nexus is just not enough.

    Agree with both.I gave the game a 2nd chance a month or so ago and the game just fizzled out for me as far as interest.

    There's just so many ftp game's now,that i'm jumping around a lot anymore.The only game's I play somewhat consistently are Lotro,EQ2 and PoE.It is good to have so many choice's though.

    Some day I'm going to put a sword through your eye and out the back of your skull!

    I couldn't stand how this game felt, control wise, but I could see why others might like it.

    Yeah, I got to 50 after F2P launch and honestly the combat is nothing special. I found GW2 and Neverwinter combat, and even traditional combat in games like Vanguard, EQ2 and Aion, far more interesting.

    The graphics are pretty, and the races are nice, but I don't really have anything else nice to say about the game.

    This game has so many flaws,i'm amazed that someone actually considering to pay to play it.Barely got to lvl 40,had stop,because it's just too repetitive and boring.
  • KareliaKarelia HeraklionPosts: 668Member

    mediocre game, great f2p model. thats it for me. managed to reach 40 lvl and stopped.

    btw maybe it has the worst AI of mobs i have ever seen in mmo's.

  • SorninSornin Richmond, BCPosts: 1,133Member
    I was happy to try it out recently and was very impressed with its graphics; the combat, however, was not for me. That does not mean it was bad, I just did not enjoy it very much. It could be the class I tried, the Lancer, was just too slow, which makes sense as he is a bulky tank, but combat felt a bit clunky. It was pretty nice to be able to hit multiple enemies at once, though.
