    Well, the music on the server select screen is pretty epic.

    Ah not sure yet, think the games still waiting for servers to pop.

    New server message : Live at 5:30 ET, so 15 minutes away.

    There wasn't even a Beta test or trial, just.....U BUY NOW U PLAY WHEN WE SAY! I'm not into survival games, but I hate feeling like I'm missing out on the new cool, but I'm also not stupid enough to throw money at something I've only seen a few screenshots or videos on.

    This is MMO launch day, we already know it goes like this there's no point on being whiny.

    After the initial peak it's when servers are more capable in the face of load, MMO's usually fall into the same old rabbit old of doing a ton of servers at launch that after the peak get empty and then they need to merge all.

    Atlas could use is of a proper login queue into a freeport the server would only take in what it can handle instead of being overwhelmed with queries.

    yeah ive been downloading for 3hrs (just over) and only just hit 50% done. Steam servers seam to be getting hammered. As soon as i hit 800kb's to 1mb download it crash's, stops and then takes 5 mins before it starts going again.

    Anyways game has issue's since there are limited spawn points, you cannot build on them but only so many are allowed at each spawn point, one has to wait for peeps to vacate before one can log in

    yup peeps aint happy but hey i hope it fitters out by the time this downloads and then installs (next year most likely) thx steam LOL

    I wonder if the same old excuse will be used.... we didnt know or expect the popularity to exceed this much excuse...

    Coming in reviews are mixed which is not bad for the first hours of a launch, could be better but, not bad.

    I dont mind buying it now even if I cant get in as it is only $25 til January 2nd and even if it is just ark reskinned I like this skin better. I had hoped the Blackwake devs would have done an open world with their game but they expressly stated that that was not their goal and had no intention to go that route.

    I am going to check reviews in the AM. . and maybe try tomorrow night.  The reviews will let me know if people are still staring at a login screen :)

    I am in the exact same position.  If it was a pirate DLC for ARK I would have happily paid $25 US.  I know at some point I will get that much out of it.

    No one has played except streamers.  The only positive that didn't seem to be making fun was a Streamer who "received the game for free" although it seems honest enough.  I will wait until people can actually play to read reviews :)

    The launch woes were expected.  The blatant asset recycling (apparently including asset folders still named "ScorchedEarth" and "Aberration") screams lazy flip on what amounts to a conversion ARK mod.  That bothers me much more than any launch issues.

    Hopefully as folks progress into the game it sets itself apart more.  Keeping an eye on it, but the apparent lazy reusing of asset data keeps me from wanting to buy right now.

    I don't see the bother. It has more of its own game by using the same engine as Ark than different battle royale games that are literal copy/pastes.

    The scale of the world, the different focused gameplay theme abd the MMO network setup are worth of its own merits.

    The copy many assets is just logical to me, re-creating things just for the sake of make them less resembling of Ark on the engine of Ark would be rather pointless. The actual lazy bit is having re-used things that were not good points from Ark, such as its UI.

    So, hows the game?
    I played before the launch as the servers broke, and I quite like it.

    It's the expectable wonky but it's quite a bunch of content and cool situations such a crewing a ship as it is fighting enemy ships in high sea, it gathers quite a bunch of points there, so I think they have hit a really good gameplay design that will easily make this title mainstream with continuous improvement over the early access period.

    Having played Ark I say more fun than Ark. This is more friendly of grouping up and go into some adventure together.

    Laziness in general is bad.  No need to reinvent the wheel, but it definitely brings the "quality" factor down if many assets are obvious hand-me-downs.

    In the end, what will draw me will be the mechanics, which is why I'm keeping an eye on it.  If the mechanics stand out as novel, I'll give it a go.
