Hey All,  

 

Just picked up a copy this weekend, and enjoying the beta so far.  I just plan to play this super casual since I'm neck deep in guild wars 2 (and loving it,) but wanted to see if any Drow were planning on picking this up. Seems like a benefit to have a guild in this game too.

I thought about it, but my understanding was its a bit heavy in the korean style MMO direction for my taste (ie: extremely grind heavy)

Giving this a shot as something casual to play on the side.

If I like it, I won't refund it but we'll see.

 

I'll post what server I'm on when I get in.

It doesn't take much to get you WoW boys psyched up about fishing does it?

So I gave this game a shot.

If blows so much fucking dick, I couldn't take more than an hour.

 

If you like BnS, you'll love this game I'm sure. I fucking hated BnS, and I fucking hate this game.

Extremely pissed that I wasted $30 on it.

I was actually gonna take bets about how long you would last there lol. I gave up on BnS too btw. No way I can grind for hours at a time and get nowhere.

How anyone enjoys a game where mouselook is the default, is beyond me....

 

Also, you take a 3D world and overlay a 2D UI on it, and then use that 2D UI to aim at 3D objects in the world?
Horrible, horrible design. I hate games like that.

I have had a hard time getting into this game too. I made it to level 26 and just hit that wall of grind, and this is from a guy that loves GW2 :P  I will probably slowly level it on the side until I get my $30 worth.

I've been playing it for a bit here and there and it's definitely different. Perhaps a lot of the issues I have with it are purely because there's much less direction than most MMO's out there now. I've actually really grown to like it honestly. Feels kind of good being able to just derp around this world and do really random stuff and still get some sort of reward for it. Biggest hurdle I had was getting used to the fact that questing doesn't seem to be the path to level. Had a couple friends convince me to start doing fishing and hiring workers and stuff and I was able to efficiently skip a large chunk of the grind people are running into. Definitely doesn't entirely excuse the issue but at least there is an option out.

We did not. You're thinking of Blade and Soul.
