    Good read!  But if this paragraph is true I guess I've already decomposed.  Sigh.  

    If the game flops maybe you can successfully petition them to add playable Elins.  At least they just look, uh, middle-aged, I guess?

    Failed attempt, but at least you tried.  I am curious though.   Why give a review 2-3 days into an MMO releasing?  Most have barely broken the surface of this game by that time?

     

    Also, this is definitely a smooth launch compared to other games, ESPECIALLY, considering how many things are different from most MMO's.  Whenever you introduce something new to anything, the percentage for failure raises exponentially.

    3 bugged quests is 3 more than should be acceptable at release.

    We are in Egypt and have had 7 bug so far.  One fixed itself after 2 days.  We heard another is fixed too.  4 of them are investigation missions that wasted 2-3 hours of our life before we broke down and checked the forums that the missions are simply bugged.  Generally the investigation missions do not reset properly after another player either fails or succeeds or both (varies) the mission which could be easily fixed by making them reset properly after a certain period of time.  These should have been tested further.  Game shouldn't have released with any bugged quests.  Maybe 1 or 2 acceptable throughout the entire game at release, but having 7 bugged quests ~35% into the game is simply unacceptable.

    Here's a short list of bugged quests so far for those doing them:

    Something Wicked 4/5 - The ravens being stacked in each position will indicate this quest is bugged.  Clicking ravens in the right order does not cause them to fly away as they should.  Can't complete due to this.

    Men in Black 4/4 - Initiating the proper sequence will not cause the device to shutdown.  A single person doing the wrong sequence will cause this to bug till instance resets.  (This may have been fixed in the last patch)

    The Black House Tier 3 - Ashes do not spawn if another player completed this quest recently, so the quest cannot be completed.  The respawn timer is over 3 hours.

    Taking the Purple Tier 2 - Ambushers do not spawn if someone completed the quest recently.  The respawn timer is over 3 hours.

    League of Monster Slayers Tier 3 - The Shadowrunner sometimes won't spawn and even after waiting over an hour.

    Scavengers Tier 5 - The infected MOB stands outside the mission area and never becomes targetable.

    The Big Terrible Picture Tier 3 - If someone has completed this quest recently the crystals cannot be rotated and thus the quest cannot be completed.

    I love that everyone forgets the days of WoW when everything was bugged....when you knew on patch day not to log in because you'd crash a million times anyway.  

    Wasted 2-3 hours?  Isn't that what you do when you play a video game anyway?

    If it's such a bother for you, stop playing.  I myself will enjoy it, bugs and all
