    lol. I'm enjoying the game so far. They are in open beta and will be fixing the text and improving the game over the next two weeks.

    It's a lot better than it was in the previous build.  So far, at least in the early areas, I haven't encountered any of the localization problems from the previous build.  I haven't gotten very far though, so we'll see, but like you said the game is still in beta mode.

    They are not using the EQ2 engine.  Runewaker is using their own engine.  The SoE published version of the game uses the SoE launcher though.

    Hope it doesn't suck. I bet it's in maintenance *checks* yep. Ok I'll try later.

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

    Your joking right?  Please tell me your joking and you don't buy into that "open beta" crap.  Even the editors of this site have admitted if there are no wipes and the cash shop is open for real money the game should be reviewed as live.

    It started with MechWarrior Online for me where they took what was promising to be a great game and released it in a broken state assuring it will never be more than a niche.  Than it was Neverwinter which was not horrible on the whole except for the exploits (if anyone believed the beta crap they spewed how they handled that should have been proof beyond a doubt how much of a lie that was), and now it's Dragon Prophet where we are expected to play and pay for a game that doesn't even have all it's text in game and many broken systems.  This open beta crap has to end or in a year or two it will be common practice to just release a beta state at best game to milk as much money as possible before the game community catches on.  Not that most F2P titles are that different from that now.

    Translation issues: surprisingly yes.

    Animations? Well if you thought it was sluggish then not much has changed. The combat is pretty smooth though.

     

    Got to level 20 and haven't encountered  a text bug or anything yet, I am actually pretty surprised at how they got it patched up in less than a week.

    That is my experience too. After last checking on CB two weeks ago, I was expecting a massive fail with this game. Got to level 20 and no issues so far. Pretty much a miracle patch haha.

    The persuadertron still telling you what to buy, what to think, and what to believe?

     

    The beta is a control program inside your head telling you not to doubt what's in front of you.

    They took the servers down at 11pm Pacific last night to address some localization and "other" issues.  The voiceovers are second rate, but at least match the text now.

    Character creation is pretty good.

    The game is definitely a newer build.  It contains the third new starting area.

    The fire still looks weird like it got plucked from the uncanny valley and dropped into the game.

    I don't know too first hand much beyond that.  There is a discussion on the forums about housing availability and pricing.  Housing lots go for astronomical prices.  The 300x plot is 40M gold.  the 500x plot is like 111M gold.  That doesn't include taxes (because guilds can set taxes on your property), registration fees, or the daily rent which was 1776G per day for the 300 or 500x unit.

    I seriously hope they sell plots for Station Cash so I don't have to deal with that.

    This sounds like a good reason SOE took this game.I bet SOE has this exact same idea in store for EQ:Next and want to use this game to test the market.

    There is a good side to crazy costs  and that is it keeps it rare,so players don't have 50 plots each by the first week.The bad side is of course possible ties to cash shop or huge RMT interference.

    If you install it from the official site unclick the install bing bar option and click cancel if it asks you to install DX because it caused me problems with all of my browsers.

    The games alright too waste a bit of spare time on but that's just it , The ceiling cap so your dragon can basically fly about 40 ft off the ground is kind of annoying ... the combat has been done better , i even prefer Tera's combat including the static skills, but that's just me.

    Still its worth a bash but i won't be spending a single penny on this game unless it really opens up and surprises me.

    I think you mean you fail.  If you can't get with the times don't play on pc.

    XP still has almost %40 market share and only last year got overthrown by Win 7 while 8 is a joke. Get a clue.

    XP might cover 40% of the market share but that doesn't mean 40% of gamers.

    It was pretty messed up in closed beta, I'll have to try it again.

    Thank you for the person that said it doesn't run on winXP saved me a download.  I dont change my OS for mediocre games that I was just going to give a 'try'.  Why do developers limit their audience in these kinds of ways?

    Times change, games change. Developers are not limiting anything. They are utilizing what would be best to handle the aspects of games that people play nowadays.

    Seems your OS is mediocre in todays standards, NOT the games that are being made.

    WinXP is mediocre compared to Win7 and I don't even use Win8 because Win7(64) is just really solid. (To me). :)

    No... he really does need to get with the times. XP will lose all support from Microsoft next year. There will be no more security patches. Windows 7 is great. Windows 8 is also good aside from the UI. With the 8.1 update coming this summer, it will fix those issues and it will be great.
