Only 7 and a half hours left until we can play one of the most anticipated MMO's of recent times! (well it is for me anyway!)

 

I just got onto the login screen, looks pretty awesome and the music is amazing! I cannot express how excited I am for this game! At last something original!

 

Gamespot is still giving away free beta keys for today, so go get one!

 

Wooooooooo :D

    Calm yourself.

     

    NDA allows me to tell you that I've been in the beta for a month now. NDA does NOT allow me to tell you much else OTHER THAN you should lower your expectations quite a bit than they are now. 

     

    Again, NDA doesn't allow me to tell you much, but what I AM allowed to tell you is the following:

    -If you're really into the "Storyline" of an MMO then you'll love the game.

    -If you're more a "gameplay & combat" kind of player you'll be disappointed. 

     

    Just saying...

    I know this is based on the engine used in AOC but holy crap the login screen (if you pres esc for options) feels like an EXACT copy of AOC minus a skin change.  Hard to say if this bodes well (given the years they have had to work out the issues) or not (recent patches have still suffered major bugs).

    Woot! I am curious to see it for myself now. :D

    Storyline should be an integral part of all MMO's, if what you're saying is true then this MMO should be great?

     

    Also, I've seen videos of the gameplay/combat, it looks pretty standard with a unique twist, how can that be bad?

     

    Also, I love exploring, puzzles and deep character customization, three things this game has!

     

    3 hours to go! Wooooooooooooooooooooooo :D

    Not many people agree with you, a big chunk of the mmorpg community is looking for different gameplay since some of them got dissapointed by having a full storyline game like Swtor not satisfy them longterm since at some point the storyline ends and you are left with doing the same youve been doing for 7 years.

    That you want a mmorpg that concentrates on the story is great! but not innovating with combat mechanics is also one of the reasons people bash swtor to death. Might be why a lot are looking at Guild Wars 2 and Tera with Hopefull eyes.

    The crazy skill system is what I'm looking for to.  Story is nice as well.  I don't need FPS combat, not sure why there is such a massive push by some people to have FPS combat in every game lately.  Go self root yourself in TERA.

    It usually bodes well, as using an existing engine has a lot of advantages


    • - knowledge of the limitations

    • - better understanding of the existing codebase

    • - less time developing a new engine and more time building on it

    • - more team members with a solid knowledge of the engine and able to switch between projects more smoothly

    A perfect example of this is LOTRO which was built using the AC2 engine.

    My concern is that once you have done the 'story' it becomes a simple grind to unlock skills to allow you to build more decks. Of course the lack of info with launch so close is a bit of a worry too. Chanes are it will be quite novel I wonder how long it will be before it is also 'good' based on FCs past performance.

    Guess we'll get some clues in a few hours.
