    I haven't read any good reader input on this one but maybe the next beta will change things. I'm hopeful anyway!

    I doubt, the game is generic like the others 9126473 games launched before, not even the pet system used is new, aura kingdom and aika are the very examples of this, there are others but these are the most easy to find I belive
    FOR HONOR, FOR FREEDOM.... and for some money.

    I saw some of the first beta play. Is that annoying little girl part of your main story because I couldn't stand her. Do you have to rescue her?

    I don’t understand the hate on the game. I like the Astells quite a bit. The story and gameplay is generic, so it’s not the savior of the mmorpg genre, but it’s a fun distraction from the pain and misery that is this life.

    Why does they still have to make it Buy2Play launch after seeing whatever happened to Bless Online, and Warlords Awakening?

    Of course, so that they can get your money FIRST then run away when things goes to sh!t!

    Hoping to get a key to have my wife join me for this beta. I did enjoy the first, regardless of its generic nature. In fact, it was probably that familiarity which allowed me to sit back and casually hop in and out for the duration of the beta. Like everyone has said, it does nothing new, even the pet system is just a generic mercenary gimmick which has been done a thousand times before. But honestly with all these developers jumping on every new bandwagon (*cough* battle royale *cough*), its kinda fun to just go back to the good old tab targetting hotbar system. Add in the mercs (pets/astells) and its an easy game to play solo/duo with a loved one. I wont lie, I have no plans to put any money into it, but I am happy to enjoy the beta phase and maybe make it a better game for those who come after me.

    I played this trash for 10 minutes then uninstalled, whoever buys this is an idiot. It's gonna be Bless Online all over again - B2P + Pledges for $200 or more, then launch comes, people realize the game is trash and also unoptimized (I can run it maxed out and it still stutters). Then people will start leaving and writing negative reviews. After a while the population will drop below 500 people and they will announce F2P, that still won't fix the situation, the game will run like this for a few more months then they will announce shut down and that will be it.


    And the stupid people that fall for the same scams over and over will become even more stupid and fall for the next one as well.

    LOL calm down. People are not falling for a scam. Everyone knows exactly what Astellia is some like it some don't. Gamers are looking to play something new and hope it succeeds for awhile. Shit dude flip the coin and your most successful MMORPG in the west is a 15 year old product. Whats up? Every MMORPG being developed in the West is delayed or development is taking way too long, only the east has been pushing out MMORPG's so what do you want the playerbase to do? Steer your anger towards Western developers because they dropped the ball, diving headfirst into the Mobile and BR scene.

    Calling ppl stupid though, for wanting something new? Come on man.

    The game is a hot garbage.

    Because there are literally 100s of other better games to play than this.

    It's like picking Battlefield Earth out of all the sci-fi movies to be the one you watch....

    If by the next "big one" you are referring to failure - yep.

    The game is live in other regions - it won't change. What you'e played is what it is.

    Like on what basis do you think it's even remotely possible for a finished game to have a drastic change in a matter of weeks with another beta?

    It's just not going to happen.

    I agree with what both of you said here.

    To add on to what @Deyirn was saying, do you think buying every game, because it's new or slightly different, sends the right message to studios when we reward them with our money?

    I assume that we all agree that there needs to be some real change in the genre. The studios are not going to take the initiative to do this themselves.

    So how can we as gamers force their hand if we're just going to buy anything they put out anyways? Why would studios bother with innovation, quality, and a reasonable pay model?

    Taking these questions into consideration, even when I agree with what you said, do you think we as gamers are going to have to make some changes? Studios know what they need to turn a profit. They have all the data in the world. We are predictable. We are pie charts in board rooms. We'll blindly buy anything new. It's time to display some willpower and restraint.

    At least graphics is good and gameplay looks smooth. I'll buy but shiz I really hope they listen to feedback from CBT-1 because even here in Asia we didn't have a positive reaction the game.

    Graphics good? Umm passable but not something I would call good.

    Gameplay smooth? - I disagree here

    They can listen to feedback but don't have the resources or time to actually change major things in game.

    So it wont matter - the game will flop here like it did everywhere
