    I'm just plain curious if their sequel will actually be any good or a train-wreck as the 1st so notoriously was

    I doubt they can get this "record" also I doubt they can get the most bugged game in beta ever, we have bethesda and ubisoft working hard all these years to keep they record on this

    I stopped reading after 'Mortal Online 2 is Aiming to Break.' Excellent article, I think they are well underway.

    40,000 keys... I think the goal is 5,000 concurrent 1 server.  Is my math off here?  

    Either they have more servers, or queues are going to be a bitch.

    I'm going to try.

    btw, Lineage 2 has had that record for years, and not even WoW has ever reached it, just youtube it, lineage 2 official castle siege, it has all the players from the same server all fighting in the same castle siege, dont remember the numbers, just look it up
    keywords incluse: Castle Siege, Zaken raid, Antharas raid

    Edit:  been on, not a problem.  Actually, not a ton of players.  Been bouncing around the zones you can start in (most people stay put, as there are no mobs to fight outside the zones)... encountered max 25 on screen.

    Got a key for the test and will be checking it out tonight. For all the fun I make about the series I really like the idea, its just the execution that has failed before. Lets see what they are up to.

    They only run beta from 27 to 29th, it's 60 G download. feel like a waste of bandwidth for 2 days gameplay.

    I'll be honest the first game was the biggest brokenest piece of trash I've ever tried. it was truly a bug ridden horrendous clusterfuck of a game. HOWEVER this game, if you enjoy pvp is shaping up to be something special. Its extremely well made and runs and plays better in beta than most launch games nowadays. I wrote this off completely due to the experience of the first one. My buddy said screw it and tried it. I laughed at him. Turns out he was right, they've done a 180 based on everything I've seen and tried based on the first one. Is it a game for everyone? Absolutely not. Its a game for the original UO people, the Shadowbane people. Its full loot and always on pvp so it is more of a niche game. Loot isn't important however and relatively easy to replace. The graphics and some of the tech they've implemented are astounding for a game that handles battles this size. I played Shadowbane back in the day and loved it. I've mostly checked out of PVP centric games since then but this based on what I've played will bring me back.

    I guess they needed a marketing gimmick to attract some attention. 

    Because normally beta tests are about making the game better through feedback, etc...

    Not trying to set some meaningless record

    What makes it well made?  From what I read, there aren’t even any creatures or AI in game.  What size battles?  Do those include siege engines and destruction of assets?

    What size battles.  The poster above said that even during this “record breaking” test he only saw 25 people at a time.  Are there videos showing massive battles?

    HAhahahahah, is that like that stupid battle royale they claimed would have 1000s in it, ended up with like 5 people. There isnt even enough people that want to play this to break any records. Not to mention mortal online was and still so baddly optimized it wouldnt be breaking any records other than the most bugs, and people falling though the ground.

    I logged in for about 2mins, had flashing textures and horrible frame rates. I set everything to min made 0 difference. I then checked recommend settings which set alot of stuff to high and i got around 30fps. I walked down a road and was like meh and shut it down. Just didn't seem very exciting to me

    See my thread on my first impressions.  It's not a beta really.  Just more of basic combat and crafting in the cities... you can explore outside the cities... but there aren't really any mobs( a very few deer) or players.  

    Someone posted a useful link on the combat mechanics in my thread.

    Just set your expectations low... I'd call this an alpha stress test.

    Yeah, there's no content outside the cities... they should have called it a alpha combat.

    With 2 minutes of content they would have to give away 1 million keys to get around 600 people playing at the same time.

    I'm curious how a low end studio is going to do something even giant AAA companies can't accomplish. Perhaps the fact there is no AI in the game might have something to do with it. Anyhow, Good Luck!

    When you log in it says "alpha combat" at the bottom.

    This should't have been called beta test. Not sure where the confusion was.

    logged in for 15 minutes or so. It has a cool art direction, graphics look nice. Runs well on my 580. Nothing to do other than log in and be there. Jump around, loot some stuff, fight people in town, get shot in the head by peeps on the roof.

    I doubt they will beat Eve Online. I actually doubt they will beat anything except in their minds. Their game is just another gank fest like the first one.

    It’s alpha, nowhere near beta, and they’re testing the server tech.
