I don't know why I didn't investigate this game sooner. Most likely because I was tired of seeing all the same MMOs and didn't even bother looking into this one. Must have figured without a subscription fee it couldn't be any good. Anyway basically I am somewhat of a casual gamer these days and basically the idea of just building my character isn't really appealing to me anymore...its just a huge time sink. What appeals to me about this game is the possibility of actually having a story to play through. I also like the idea of the mulitple skill combos you can create to hopefully not have a cookie cutter class...however...I wonder if there are most effective builds that lead people to having a cookie cutter class...but that remains to be seen. Anyway a few questions.
1. Does this game really have a story worth playing....(I know it won't be good as say a single player RPG like say "The Witcher" (sweet game btw checkit out). But I would like to see something similiar to LOTR...Tired of going to go grind fest crap for no reason...and even with a story that can suck...but it helps.
2. Is the game still popular enough for a brand new player to enjoy?
3. Does the story go in order with the different expansions, and if so, if I bought all the expansions, just for the ability to play the added classes, can you use say the Assassin class from Factions in the original campain?
4. Does this game really succeed in bringing the best aspects of both RPG and MMO? How many people really play it, suprised its not as big as say WoW with those concepts. Seems that this is the only real current game that actually brought something different to the table...if you believe the advertisements, which I don't typically do anymore...but I still try to have faith.
P.S. I hope this is a successful game in trying something new, because we defiantly need it. My only hopes other than this are say Darkfall (for being completely something new), Conan (for possibly a new way to do combat), and The Elder Scrolls MMO (possibly a Darkfall type game that will come out cause they got the cash lol).
Thanks for the help!
