    Pretty sure it is going to get dumbed down a lot before NA release! That is what I am worried about since NA games have to be easy mode to make money.

    Lol, I feel for the OP. I would really like to try this game too. It looks great and its features sound very interesting.

    I am not so sure  it will be dumbed down. Hopefully it will be left intact since it seems to be combining sandbox and theme elements into one game.

     

    If it has a little bit for every type of gamer then leave it alone!

    It depends upon the publisher.  Just hope that someone decent picks it up.  I think we need to go on a campaign to plead with publishers.  Cause I'm tired of this waiting too.  Every time I see a new screenshot, I die a little more inside.

    You got me I was expecting another asian crap with big weapons and thong warriors. Why would the game need a publisher? All they need to do is translate everything to english and release.

    The best thing that can happen for a NA release is no NA release for 2-3 years.  NA audience simply do not have the patience, understanding or attention span to play an unfinished sandbox hybrid.  The best thing that can happen is the game releases in the East where it is played by more mature players for a couple of years while the American fanboys cry and drool.  Once the game has a couple of years and content and polish it will be in much btter to shape to survive the ADHD American audience. As long as AA can survive and recieve most of its income from Eastern subs it gives hope the game will not be ruined or dumbed down to appease the American playerbase.

    I do hope they give the option for a skimpy armor, running around looking like some variation of a lobster (or a beggar in the case of LOTRO) is not really appealing.

    Yes there are a ton of Americans waiting to play the game and they will love it.  All for about 2 months until they run out of things to do or find the game unfinished.  It is much better for the games long term future that the game's econmoic model is based on the more stable subs of Eastern players.  NA American players are great for box sales but not long term subs. But clean the game up, add content, polish and it make shine over a couple of yearsof development and it stands a chance of keeping a substantial NA playerbase.  This is why the release in the East then the West model is much superior. One of the biggest reasons a games like FF11 and L2 did so well in the West was thier staggered releases.  For a sandbox type game where its much harder to release a polished game with full quality content it becomes even more important to stagger a release and keep the game away from Americans for as long as possible.

    "In the month of September 2010, a new contract was announced between XL Games and Tencent to publish the game in China. This generated much attention as it was worth from $50 to $60 million USD; making it the second largest deal recorded in Korean gaming exports, behind NCSoft's deal with Shanda for Aion."

    It's not that western publishers aren't interested it's that they're too stingy (or broke) to meet XLgames' demands...imo.

    Yeah I see what you are saying.. But look at how bad of shape the other sandboxes were at release.. From what I've seen, this game is far beyond what MO and Darkfall is even right now. I'm just trying to have a little faith;)
