Why did I hate this game so bad? I never gave it a try. I had friends and friends try and get me to sub and I would try it but hate it. I had a coworker finally convince me to give it a real shot and I did and my daughter (she's 8) and I love the game. There are so many dynamics to the game. When I first tried the Gnome, I laughed and almost quit immediately but then I realized that it is sort of out there away from normal fantasy games but coming from CIty of Heroes, it is right on target. I just wanted to share. We love this game and as soon as I get my taxes back I will create a second account and get the $59.99 version!!!!
