I've looked over the forums, and I see a lot of "It's good, it's not good, depends on what you mean by good."
But nothing that really describes the game, beyond a great PvP RvR system.
I know the shortest answer is "Download it and try it" but I'm at work, and looking for some mmo fix.
So, to make people hurt:
1. What current gen game would be comparible?
2. How quickly can you get involved with a guild/nation? How hardcore are they? Are we looking at the equivalent of DKP all over, and miss a realm meeting means booting? Or are there more relaxed, but still good, guilds?
3. Is the game casual-friendly? By casual I mean more time invested and grinding, not skill - I enjoy my PvP a lot, but I don't want to have to invest 14 hours farming rep to get the weapons to use. I don't mind hardcore skill being required, in fact, I'd prefer it....
4. Player housing - EQ 2 style apartments, or SWG style towns and decorations?
Who am I?
