    you can move and shoot with no problem (as long as lag don't f' ya up) but most of the passive weapon skill bonuses come from being in a stand still

    First login tonight went like this:

    1. Quick download of client

    2. Installed

    3. No patches, fired right up

    4. Created a toon, was put off a bit by texture loading methods (solid orange screen > gray model > odd colored models > skinned/texture models)

    5. Hopped in to a typical quicky tutorial, controls were a bit wonky but I think within an hour it would be usable.

    6. Ran into a training room with only a couple of bots spawning to be killed on a long spawn timer with about 5 other people, spent a lot of time waiting.

    7. Finished up killing the little bots, went to turn in couldn't leave combat mode to talk to NPC.

    8. Relogged to fix it.

    9.  Can't log back in, zone not available or some such.

    Overall a bad first impression, but I'm still curious enough to try again tomorrow.

    The bad part about that is that your character is totally shwacked now and you have to reroll and do it all over again.

    No, I'm not joking. It's an issue the devs have been trying to fix for the last two builds and have yet to find a successful solution to.

    Good thing you don't need to. Also, you can switch to normal WASD movment thorugh a / command.

    If you've played DFO, MO, or FE, you'll have no problem adapting to these controls. Its the type of control setting thats required for FPS MMORPGs.

     lol  "will check again in a few months."   nuff said   ;-)

     

    I'm not sure if I'm going to buy it anymore... It's not that I expect a supremely polished game on launch (because we all know it's against the law for MMO developers to release finished work, even though consoles have been doing it right for 20 years) I just can't stand the rubberbanding.   It truely kills gameplay for me.      

    When Aion launched it had the same rubberbanding issue and even though I loved other aspects of the game, the travel lag and rubberbanding ultimately cancelled my account.  

     

    I hope Earthrise takes care of that part asap.

    "(because we all know it's against the law for MMO developers to release finished work, even though consoles have been doing it right for 20 years)"

    Until consoles were able to go online...now every single game release with bugs. A lot of the huge bugs. We'll patch it later. Ship it NOW.

    Where the heck do I use my beta key? Created an account, logged in but cannot find where to use it... 

    Better to be crazy, provided you know what sane is...

    First Impressions-

     

    The Good:

     

    The game is absolutely beautiful.  Masthead should have released batches of beta tester screenshots, because the official screenies I've seen don't do it justice.

     

    The UI actually makes sense and works well for me.  I don't get what people are complaining about.  I'm a champion 'did not read the directions' type, and I still figured the essentials out...eventually, anyway.  So just read the directions, for crying out loud.  They're the first thing you see on your screen after you create your character and enter the game world.

     

    Weapons:  I want a shotty and an assault rifle, and a sniper rifle, and some wicked slashy things on my hands, and ooo know what would be cool?  A flamethrower!  Well, congrats, you can have all of the above.  And you can use it all, too. Although admittedly, not all at once.  But it's easy enough to swap weapons when you get bored and need a change in the middle of a fight.

     

     

    The Bad: 

     

    A bit laggy, and one strange bug temporarily turned my character's hair from the color I chose to an eye assaulting shade of neon yellow, plus there was a bug that forced me to relog once to see handy structures like teleporters and gear dispensers.  But the game is still in Beta, so I'm not really worried about it.

     

     

    The Ugly:

     

    Character creation leaves much to be desired.  Eye color choice seemed to be limited to brown or brown with encroaching cataracts.  Hair color choice was limited to brown or something that looks like it came out of a bottle labeled 'Halloween 80s Punk, almost guaranteed to wash out before Christmas'.   But can I at least make a character with long flowy hair ala the Earthrise *smirk* 'my butt cheeks are hanging out' poster girl?  Erm, no, sorry.  You can have a ponytail, or slicked down short hair, or spiky short hair that looks like it could put someone's eye out, or really short cornrows.  Pretty much everyone looks like everyone else, even before they go from their underwear to their armor.  But hey, everyone is young and fit.  Not a wrinkle or a hint of unsightly belly fat anywhere!  Seriously, some variety in character appearance would be nice.

    I am convinced there is only one way to eliminate these grave evils, namely through the establishment of a socialist economy, accompanied by an educational system which would be oriented toward social goals.
