This is a very hard game to review at this stage considering it is in Closed Beta. You are going to lose all your progress if you play right now once Closed Beta ends. It is prone to crashes, errors, and bugs, some of which (and most of the game-breaking ones) have relatively obscure forum fixes. The technology is old. The combo system _seems_ to have potential. This is most certainly NOT for anyone who doesn't already have a taste and a feel for MMORPG's, BUT MAY BE IN THE FUTURE. Right now the game is too incomplete and too buggy and will deter all new players without this acquired taste.
tl:dr New players should wait until Open Beta to not be turned off by how much of a mess closed beta is and veteran MMORPG go-er's especially those who know Asian-MMORPG style stuff should know this.
+ PVP that _might_ bear resemblance to Dragon Nest's PVP system due to striking similarities (however this remains untested as the PVP servers are closed for now).
+ The community seems to be nice, not starting many fights, and channel chat can be useful if you need help as it doesn't require any megaphones or cash items akin to that nature.
~ Suba Games (a relatively unknown publisher) has inherited this title. That might mean another Webzen + C9 or Nexon + DFO sort of incident resulting in the 3rd closure of this title.
~ The PVP channel is still down, but it might get re-opened.
~ A wipe will occur and no mention of name reserving has even hit the table.
~ Grind seems to be normal and average for a level cap of 40.
~ Definite resemblance to Dragon Nest mechanics e.g. identical quest tracker, font, -.- chat filter.
- Constant crashing (BUT FORUM FIXES ARE THERE IF YOU WANT TO LOOK FOR THEM AS THEY ARE ALL IN 1 THREAD)
- Glitches are apparent e.g. Friend system not working, party dungeoning impossible.
- Dragon Nest chat filter and font (one cannot say class without it showing up as cl*** or button without it showing up as ****on)
- Dungeon difficulty based off of stat increase and more "large" mobs with attacks that hit for 10% of your HP each (Dragon Nest *cough cough*)
