I should'nt be enjoying this game as much as I do, it's still early days learning now to play but after the training guides I was set up with enough knowledge to start feeling my way round the game.

My loves: I'm just playing on a standard Notepad laptop, no bells or whisles for this PC and the low res/graphics dont bother me. It's like I've started to enjoy the "old shool" in it's simplicity.
My hate: The more you learn about the game, the more it's boundries become clear and I feel like the character leveling inhibits your game progress and expantion.

I am enjoying the exporing and story line. The action is fun and regular, I like how if you are quick enough you can avoid a potential loss to and much larger force. If you lose a battle there is consiquences BUT you can dust yourself off and rebuild easily. My tip: Make sure you are always light and fast, speed is the key. Being heavy will slow you down and reduce your options, stay mobile

No hard and fast rules here, just pure dedication. It is a great time-waster as well, and not the game I'd recommend to anyone unless they love building empires or recruit people and completing quests. Fighting is also mundane, needed something to pick up the pace...
