    Honestly, if done properly like FFXIV it can't hurt. But, constantly going back to your class-world-hub, that sounds really lame.

    Skipping this one.

    On the plus side, this will help educate people on why Gameforge is so bad, just like Dark and Light showed people why Snail was such a backwards company. Experience is the best teacher.

    Gameforge still has the one b2p game that was 'hyped up' and forgotten about within months of being announced. Kingdom something?

    I might have given it a try if it was F2P, but I won't spend money on this game, I have a felling it's not good enough to cost money and it will not do well on the long run, it might even go F2P in the future.

    Is it worth a buy?

    They said they don't publish it for South East Asia region, but I check on my Steam they are taking my Rp. currency. After checking at SteamDB it seems they only block Singapore,Malaysia,Vietnam while allowing the rest of ASEAN, what gives?

    Ahhh man. I, for some reason, had this confused with Justice Online. I was hoping for that to release in the west so I could check out how DLSS works in an MMO.

    Is this tab target or aim? Anyone know?

    It's weird - it's tab target, but will also auto-target the nearest enemy to you if you don't have one selected. But you don't aim, I've not seen a ranged skill miss. Melee skills? Sure, if they aren't in range. We'll have more throughout the week as we continue playing the alpha.

    some of the areas look like Revelation Online ...

    Was the acronym "SOLO" intended? /s

    The western version is using the old Havok engine. But in China, the developers re-did the whole game in UE4. Which will have DLSS. Who knows if this game will last long enough to get the upgrade here in the west.

    Honestly, i doubt there is anything innovative in this game at all. Nothing new, just a shitty reskin of a tired genre.

    DLSS is currently in the Alpha, so I would expect to see it in the final version as well. We shall definitely see.

    I did bring this up literally 20 mins ago in the Sword of Legends Online discord. And from what I understand from what the moderators told me, is the zones are instanced but huge. The best I can described it as like GW2. Where the zones are separated by a instance portal.
    And with speaking with the mod, it seems like main quests, class quests will be in the main hub, but there will be other random quests you will run while out in the world.

    The three packages tells you a lot about this Gameforge.Pay about 50 or so more for a mount ..LMAO.
    Also the prices have been jacked up since only a month ago,from 39.99 to now standard is 59.99 that is why you NEVER hype games,they feel they can rip everyone off.
    So we went from 39/59/99 to now 53..79 and 139.
    So we know Steam takes about 25-30% well it seems it was nice of Steam or Gameforge to jack THEIR take on to the consumer.


    First of all they sent out copies with NDA's so restrictive reviews and imo BIASED reviews.When yo ugive out a copy to a YouTuber or MEdia site to review but then have to sign and NDA that is just a very scummy move right from the get go.

    You know who else did the exact same thing>>Cyberpunk,they wanted to silence the critics and just let the biased marketing get off the sales first.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this article on this site had to be ok'd by Gameforge first.
    Lastly i am not a fan of SILLY ideas like running across water or flying or the crouching tiger hidden dragon idea.It's nice to watch in a movie but i don't want that stuff in my game.

    I also feel that this game like so many is a shallow game with the real focus being end game pvp and well their real intention is likely to run a cash shop.


    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    Should be interesting to hear the voice overs and how well they are done.

    Not sure where you got that, but its still 39/59/99. Unless I misunderstood what you are trying to get at.

    Why are some of my Chinese and SEA friends telling me this game is no where near as popular in China as these articles are making it out to be?

    The popular Chinese game in China is still Justice online & Fantasy Westward Journey, while the top game in china is Dungeon Fighter Online.

    SOLO doesn't even make it in the top 20 list's on the Chinese game rating boards, and if you do a google search for top Chinese mmorpg's, a lot of the time World of Warcraft or Justice Online is mentioned mostly.

    So what's going on with the conflicting and false information surrounding this game?
    EDIT: Currently Gu Jian Qi Tan Online (SOLO) is ranked 43 right now among popular games. And for some context, Guildwars 2 is ranked 14, Final Fantasy XIV (china) is ranked 26, with Dungeon Fighter Online being 1 and League of Legends being 2

    This checks with what I had heard and why I had this confused with justice online.
