Quite enjoying this game so far, and yes it does have WASD movement :)

Hey guys. I am not going to go into a huge amount of detail on this game as I have only played it for a few hours so far, after winning one of the keys from here the other day. What I will say though is that it is fun! And there seems to be a hell of a lot of things to do if you give it the time. It was a tad overwhelming at first, but in a classic MMORPG style that we have moved so far away from as of late. I don't think this is a bad thing, but it will certainly put a number of people off. That said there is a pretty good beginner guide posted here by ShadowBG  http://forum.playwildterra.com/topic/1250/guide-for-beginners-v01 Definitely worth following to get you started.

One of the big questions asked in the main thread in this forum is about WASD controls, a question that never seemed to get an answer (possible I just missed it in the extensive notes) but I can confirm that it does have WASD support even when played using the web browser which is pretty nifty. The movement and actions at the moment in time are somewhat clunky, but hopefully they will get a little polish in the future. 

I am looking forward to seeing how this game develops, it seems to have quite a committed and active dev team working on it which can only be a good thing. I would suggest to the devs to open up a free trial for people though. This is an old school looking game and I feel people will want to try before they buy due to that. Even I put off buying it due to uncertainty, despite being a huge fan of this style of game. This type/style of game works its charm once you are actually playing it, not when you watch videos or look at pictures that is for sure, and so a trial would be a logical step in my opinion. Without a trial or being fortunate enough to have won a key (as I did) I would probably have put off trying this for quite a lot longer.

I will hopefully have more to add once I get into it a little more, but right now I am just enjoying the old school feel of it all.

    They must have added the WASD movements; it's possible that they didn't have it before. From what I've read, Wild Terra didn't have a PvE server before, but it was later added.

    I started playing but got a bit confused. It felt like more of a survival game and less of an MMORPG. It felt like Don't Starve, or even that one isometric zombie survival game (can't really remember the name). Does it get more MMO elements as it goes on? In the beginning so far all I did was chop a few logs, make a fire, and unsuccessfully try to kill animals.

    I guess they must have, I just noticed it was one of the most asked things and thought I would clear it up, since it is a nightmare having to read through 100's of patch notes just to find something like that out  :)

    I know what you mean, I can't really tell which of the two it wants to be at the moment. Certainly starting out it feels more like a survival game just on a massive server (I think it had about 1500 players on the pve eu server the other night). I don't think there are any of the newer style features like raids etc but the game feels like an old school mmo. That said with it not having any NPC's that could mean it will have no quests. Maybe the whole point of it is simply to survive, build and then dominate areas. Sadly the PVE servers (the most popular) undo the threat of danger that I think the devs initially wanted to be a constant theme. If they want the game to do well it does need more direction towards PVE content and organised PVP that actually has a point, otherwise it will just be a survival grind, with little or no point.

    My biggest gripe at the moment is the lack of interaction with others, despite there being over a thousand people on the same server. Again I have not played that much but so far the world feels a little dead to me and somewhat copy/pasted for miles and miles, that mixed with travel being so slow initially is a real pain in the behind. They could do with adding some excitement to the start of the game, not that I know for sure just yet that it gets more exciting later on, but whatever the case the beginner experience definitely needs spark added to it  :D.

    I will hopefully play more and get a better idea of what's what and update this thread. In the meantime if one of the dev team see's this and would like to let us know the overall 'point' of the game and the direction they are hoping to take it, that would be great  :)
