And it SUCKS!!
I've played alot of mmo's. Most of them in fact. 7 year eve player, Darkfall, SWG, WOW, WAR, LOTRO, AOC, Muds, beta's and indy games. I'm used to sandbox and pvp. I LOVE sandbox games. I usually would quietly have deleted my account and forgotten this mess of a game, on account of an indy developer, but it offends me so that I simply have to voice my opinion.
The thought of a truly open world and sandbox (as well as open pvp) enticed me to go ahead and install this. I'll allways appreciate the fact I did so... it set a new low standard for unplayable, buggy crap. It has also made every other MMO I've ever played THAT much better.
This game is one of the most advanced graphically. Loved the vista's and eviroment. Unfortunately it's also encumbered by the most backwards ass unintuitive system of control I've ever experienced in a game. If making a game hardcore requires such clunky controls to make it "hardcore" (anyone try to /tame following an animal?) why not just make all commands in swahili and force you to play in a mirror?
There ARE no tutorials. The five or so blocks of text you get (after you figure out you must hold down the goddamn z key the WHOLE time to read or dismiss the tabs) describe none of the very basics you require with this game. The few that are on the website are all player generated, and most are vague at best. Nothing in the tutorial even tells you how to bring up the chat pane! (btw you must hit ENTER then a slash key to perform an action... took someone else asking to figure that one out)
No, I didn't get WTF PWND by any elite PK'ers. It's a simple matter of what the f**k were they thinking when they designed this? Hell, give me a wall of text on the most basic of game mechanics and I would have been satiated and spent a few weeks running around noob central naked trying to figure out why people can call guards on me for standing there.
I appreciate what they were trying to do, and I wish I could have been part of it. My issue is that the interface / UI / mechanics / bugs are worse than shit. They're insulting.
To those of you who've obviously played since beta and stayed on, congrats. You obviously have to have a real tight knit community to pay for that. I wish all of you luck, and I hope this game does well for you.
I"m simply amazed how this game isn't a beta. How can people pay for this?
