    So if it turns out to be any good, I'd expect the Chinese gamers to flock to this in a huge way and drop wushu in a heartbeat.

    Still the game is in Alpha and no matter how amazing it may do in China, it still may not do well in western markets even with proper localization.

     

    You still don't get it do you? You can't look at some pretty toons riding on a horse and some guys doing kung fu and say Wushu.

     

    That's like seeing some awesome spaceships and a stargate then saying EVE. 

     

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wuxia And why not?

    "Wuxia, which literally means "martial hero", is a broad genre of Chinese fiction concerning the adventures of martial artists."

     

    You misunderstand my point. That's my fault. 

     

    You know how there are different classes of the same car? Like the Dodge charger touring, and the Dodge Charger R/T (racing and touring). The cars look the same, but what drives them is very different. The touring may only have 4 cylinder engine, while the R/T has a 8 cylinder Hemi engine. They look the same, but the performance/bells and whistles aint even close. 

     

    A better example would be Blade and Soul compared to Age of Wushu. They both have martial arts, but one is a quest to level cap mmorpg, while the other is do what you want to level cap, then find out the cap really isn't a cap at all. 

     

    I hope I explained better.

    Well, the similarity is partly due to having a common genre and geography settings.

    TYMYD use phasing extensively - there's no traditional instances or loading screens like in AoW. 

    A little of the professions and crafting  has been revealed (not released for this alpha test) and appeared quite deep but different to AoW's system.

    In TYMYD, players can pick only one "Jianghu role" out of 10. Each role has its unique tech tree of useful skills and crafting.

    For example, a trader start with the "setup stall" skill which allowing him to sell things. The next skill he can learn is  "Construct Market Stall"  beginning with a cheap mat and progress to better stalls as his level increases.

    Non-trader players need to get a ready-made stall from a trader before they can start selling things - but probably not as effective as a trader, because as a trader improved his "Setup stall" skill, his transaction tax is reduced.

    A trader can research the "financial planning" passive skill and reduce the upkeeping cost of his clan, the "Prosperity" skill to improve the monetary rewards from mobs for himself and his group dropped after battle. If he research the "Trading Partner" skill he can take other players with him to trading missions. A higher level trader can eventually purchased a private shop in the trading districts after acquiring the "Merchant Shop" skill.

    Finally, TYMYD appeared to be better optimized than AoW graphically and supported higher-end resolutions including ultra wide resolutions (5760 X 1080, 21:9) and surround monitors: 

    (above is downscaled from 5760 X 1080)

    Well I hope you continue to enjoy your game and myself personally hope this new game is nothing like AoW apart from the setting and martial arts theme as I didnt really care for anything about AoW.

    And as far as Blade & Soul goes I am looking forward to that game far more than both of these and especially more so than Aow.
