I knew I would be taking a chance - and I'm not blaming anyone but myself.
But, boy, this game is beyond terrible. The story and presentation is among the worst I've seen - and the UI/layout is so busy it literally hurts my eyes.
It's like a parody of a bad asian slot-machine dressed up as an MMO - and I'm honestly disgusted with how bad it is. The engine - at max settings - has the most massive amount of asset pop-ins I've ever seen. We're talking your screen is saturated in textures and meshes appearing and disappearing constantly with zero effort to hide it. This includes players and shadows.
It didn't exactly help discovering that the classes are gender-locked and that the only one I'm interested in is female-only (ranger).
That said, I could have done more research and not been so impulsive.
So, I kinda deserve it.
Anyway, back to being bored with the genre.
