    Everything about an unrelease game is always beautiful.

    It is not a lobby game.  It seems to be a mix of open-world persistent zones and instances.  The travel system is like GW2's waypoints, which i think confused people into thinking it's a lobby game.  Here's a video on it.  http://youtu.be/1h2kzU4DqMk?t=4m13s

    Some misconceptions flying around.1 - Skyforge is not instance based. It has both instances and large open world zones. It is a full fledged MMORPG.2 - The classes are not all available at once. You start with 3 classes and you can switch freely between them. You unlock more character classes and skills for the initial classes by progressing through the game. You can switch to other classes only outside of combat and the different classes have different weapon gear.3 - The combos are not "you cast this skill to cast this other skill" but actual mouse click combinations that execute different maneuvers similarly to PSO2. L -> L- > R executes a different move than L -> L -> L or just L -> R (L - left mouse button, R - right mouse button).  

     

    Umm the divine observatory is your lobby. From there you click on whatever instance, dungeon or area you want to do - and the you are teleported there.

    Where is your world - when your starting point is a lobby?

    So what is Divine Observatory if not a lobby?

    I edited my post, but i wouldn't consider the Divine Observatory a lobby.  There isn't any instance with other people where you can interact with them (from what i've seen in that video anyway).  He even explains there isn't any chat rooms.  The Divine Observatory seems to be just an interface, such as a World Map that many MMOs have.  If i could compare it to anything, i would say it's like Swtor's map system on their ships.  I have no idea where the avatar is though when the Divine Observatory is up.

    The Divine Observatory is a mix between a waypoint system and a dungeon finder.

    I signed up for the beta. There's only one way to find out if something works and that's to play it.

    I'm curious if it's open world pvp. I don't really like that much anymore. It's not usually done well in mmos. It essentially equates to murder anyone weaker than you. Lineage is one of the only mmos I've played where the open pvp and community worked for me.

    Please explain as I am unfamiliar. 

    If you check on Allods there game you see how much of it is cash shop only, in many ways it's pay to win. like buying runes can end up costing you 20 to 30K just to keep up the fully with the game, as well there combat mount about every 5 months they add even faster mount and better for combat then befor as the mount can end up costing you way over $200 each time from a lockbox,  and some other items need to pay. But if you want to see how the allods team is download there game and see how far you get with out needed to pay for something.

    I prefer this game play over static dungeons.  Dungeons nowadays are nothing more than fast paced, rush to the boss, damn the torpedoes, endeavors anyway.  Completing dungeons are no longer a social experience.  One can barely blink or they will be left behind by the min-maxing mentality of gamers and dungeons nowadays.

    That's gPotato / Mail.ru, right? Allods was a total milking cow which never delivered on its promised features. It did look great but damn, it required you to spend just to finish quests!

    Mail.ru owns Allods now and they are doing well at repairing the damage gPotato did. gPotato was owned by Gala Inc at the time of their owning Allods Online.

    Please explain because the pay model in Allods is still the exact same model that everyone disliked.

    My initial thoughts are that it'll be just like every other friggin' F2P MMO out there.  Which isn't really a good thing.

     

    ....that said, it does get brownie points for making its Cryomancers surf on ice when they dash.  And that snowball move.

     

    So I guess it'll be like every other F2P but at least be rather stylin'.

    I have played when it was under gpotato then under webzen then now under mail.ru when I quit short after that as seeing allods team was pulling all the lines even people thinking it was gpotato doing not saying they didn't do anything wrong they as bad as allod team, but as for the allods team is not repairing the game push for more cash shop then game play, but just any pay to win game they just adding more item for cash shop then making the game more grindy then befor just to use the cash shop more to keep up with forced pvp or any type raiding.

     

    Really does suck with my $20 a month I was putting in the game after close 3 years end up with level 8 runes a few items not all the time from cash shop, and still when try to get gear to upgrade so you have some gear for pvp or get a item to upgrade faster if your not in a big guild making the top 5 ranks the just run you over all the time and if your not a big spender they will just murder you in pvp, even in pve no fair blance.

    Just come down to it, seeing how they doing with allods mind you this as there not changing how they look at people other then big wallets, they doing do the same with skyforge they just suck people in first what they did with allods then drop in all the pay to win items try to hook you to keep on spending.

     

    But I don't mind a mmo making money free2play or sub, I don't mind people spending alot money to get things but when it's make your overpowered and there's no way to catch up in a time frame befor a gear reset or and a power upgrade, you can play 24/7 but never can catch up to the players the spend more.

    Perhaps I'm being overeager by comparing this one to Guild Wars 1 (the best game ever made), but yeah.... I've got some high hopes for Skyforge.

    As Skyforge has not yet been released, you can't download it just yet, however the closed beta will start this year in Q4, so make sure you sign up over at Skyforge.com!

    While at first glance it might more look like an action game due to the combat system, Skyforge definitely is an MMORPG. While we took our unique spin at the MMO-Genre, there are still many core mechanics that MMO enthusiasts hold dear, such as large explorable zones,  developing your character, grouping up for dungeons, PvP and many others! For more information on Skyforge, feel free to visit Skyforge.com and sign up for your chance at getting into this years closed beta in Q4!

    It's an auto targeting crap of a game. I can't remember what videos I saw but go do some Google research and explore their forums. This game is nothing to write home about.
