Where are the people, this game is on humble bundle and yet all i see are 12 people scattered across like 2-3 game servers. The average people are spending is $6 meaning most people of the 51,000 or more that got the bundle have this game. I can only assume these people are ghosts of some holiday or something like humble bundles past cause 12 people in a game thats this fantastic is horrible to see. I did come across a bunch of crashes and there is always one and it happens when i hit the play button once then if i hit it again it runs, and just recently it crashed mid game as i was readying an attack.

Dead game with prrobably around 40 players but i enjoy the hell out of it. Ping has a big factor but the game is enjoyable even when you are getting murdered. Something about saving up to buy a new ax really speaks to me.

I have received this part of a humble bundle and it looked great in the video hwoever the whole experience just made me delete it after around 1 hour and a little bit of gameplay, since the game is pretty much dead they should increase the amount of gold you get, I sure as hell not gonna spend 100s hours farming it to customise my character.

The attack is also too weird and hard, if it was a SP game I would say fine add a little Connan combat to it but for MP you rely on blind luck to hit someone, running around like idiots swinging all over, archers are supposed to be snipers but you hardly do any damage:( might as well not bother. No idea if you buy the 50k bow if that will make some better damage.

Anyhow, game is dead, you will find 1 or 2 servers with people on it and you will be grinding forever killing each other in deathmatch, I saw no objectives or some kind of base siege...

Graphics do look great, they could make a SP game out of it.
