I want to start by saying this is an MMO and will be updated often. This review will not cover fixes or improvements that
will be patched in later. Ignore the playtime listed on steam as I bought this when it was first released (even bought the
collectors edition!) Since I had so many points I wanted to cover, I'm just going to use a list format to make this quick
1)The english translation is horrid. This can make playing the game way harder then needed at times.
2)The US tech team is a joke. No matter how small the issue, it can take WEEKS to be resolved. Accounts get suspended and
frozen for unknown reasons.
3)Bots. Are. Everywhere. I logged in for several hours a few nights ago and I couldn't tell any difference from launch.
I'm not sure how or even if they are addressing them, but seeing 30 bots (I actually counted) in one area spaming is
awful. Also bots are used to harvest 24/7 so that just ruins the ingame economy.
4)I have never had so many issues trying to subscribe (or in this case buying ingame currency used to buy a sub). I had
two accounts for me and my wife. It denied our credit card AND our debit card. I ended up having to make a paypal account
JUST to buy from them. Then after one use the paypal would no longer work.
5)To be honest the game is very shallow. It's focus is so much on this open pvp dream that outside of that there isn't
much to do. Not to mention the population has been on a downward decline for awhile. It should be noted that a new server
was recently opened so that might help.
Overall this just seems like a second rate attempt to bring this over to the english countries. There is so much potential
here that it's heart breaking to see it in it's current state. Of all the MMOs I have played, (going all the way back to
Ultima Online), this one was the most disappointing to me personally. I really wanted this game to be a hit but it's just
not meant to be.
