     That would be up to you... feel free to follow my Journey into Mortal Online which I document in another thread on these forums.  It should be an interesting few days!

    Starvault's reponse to criticism related to having a handful of players as the official "test" team for a supposed MMO: "We've just have another 10ish folk kind enough to voulenteer added tot the test team" (SIC) This explains much about the state of the game :-)

    No. If you hate the trolls on MMORPG.com, imagine them all in one game.

    Welcome to Mortal Online.

    (Unless you like running around naked punching people. Then this is the perfect game!)

    Im personally very excited about this. Several times ive thought about just dishing out the money because it sounds great but then i just cant do it because some of the feedback its gotten.

    Now ill definitely check it out, just not quite yet. Im waiting on Bulletstorm to arrive so i can play that all day. :)

    Of course, this is the beauty of a free trial, Ray - you don't have to rely on the veracity of forum posters to get an accurate view of the game, especially given the fact that each person has unique preferences.

    It's impossible to say whether or not you'll like it, but the only sure way to know is to try it yourself.

    Heck, to me, trying new games is fun in and of itself, whether or not I end up liking it long term.  There are few games that have given me no enjoyment at all.

    I was in the beta about a year ago and was somewhat taken aback by the size of the world and dismayed at the amount of bugs that existed.

     

    Am downloading now to see if it has improved but the patches are taking forever (6 hours so far and only half way through second patch).

     

    Tempted to give up.  Will at least give up for today and if the patch doesnt carry on tomorrow from where it left off I will abort the entire thing.

    I used to visit this site a lot however in recent years it has become the home of negative forum posts, illogical opinions and tantrums so I visit less often.

    Played or Beta'd: UO / DAOC / Horizons / EQ2 / DDO / EVE / Archlord / PirateKingsOnline / Tabula Rasa / LOTRO / AOC / Champions / Darkfall / Mortal Online / DCUO / Rift / STO / SWTOR / TSW

    Well I would say MO is a 1 month game, meaning you'll have explored every aspect of the game in just 1 month, so a 1 month trial is just what you need.

    My only suggestion would be to play as much as you can in the 14 days.  I say this for two reasons that might seem to contradict each other.

    The Pro:  The game can be hard to get into.  You might decide in the first hour or two that it is garbage. . this could be for many reason. ( the UI, Your character will move slowly and seem to attack slowly until you build skills in these areas- You could get ganked early)  It takes a few hours to really get a feel for the game.  Try to get out exploring and see the world.  It will grow on you!

     

    The Con:  After the world grows on you and you start exploring and gaining some skills you might get really into the game.  Try to see as much as you can.  The world will see "vast" at the beginning and the world very immersive.  The reason that this is a CON for me is that quite a few people after a month or so start to wonder what they should do next etc or just don't feel like logging in.  You won't see that in the first 14 days.  Try to imagine. . . "okay once I have explored and got my skills up what would I do?"  If you have some answers for that great. 

     

    I suppose the way they are running it you could always start a second 14 day trial and play for 28 days.  Consider the first 14 a chance to figure the game out maybe?

    Also spend time chatting with people.  The game almost requires you to be social.  I think that is a good thing.  It seems to happen naturally in the game.  Also consider starting in one of the towns that has a newb friendly guild.  I can never spell the name of that place. . but there are several.  

     

    I am glad they have this trial so some of the debate can die down.  Now people can see for themselves.

    Bak-ti is where the Forsaken guys hang out - they are very new player friendly.  Their tag is [FOR].

    Moh-ki was always good for Wessex guys.

    Ah thanks.  I was around Moh-ki but it was Bak-ti I was thinking of :)
