    I know some of my WoW friends were really looking forward to this game. I honestly don't see anything special about it, but the interesting character classes. I'm afraid this game might be like the f2p Korean MMOs that a lot of us are familiar with. When I went to the official site a few months back, there was no info on the game. I'm interested on how the gameplay will be like, as the graphics already show that they will look good.

    The F2Ps a.) aren't on badass engines and b.) aren't backed by big gaming companies...

    If it was a funcom title, I'd laugh and say "fat chance that goes anywhere, I bet gameplay will be horrific" (Considering AO & Conan), but having played CoH/V, I have a bit more faith in NCSoft than I do most other publishers.

    Graphic wise looks insane for a ftp. The fact that its also NCSoft backing id definately try it if it came out US

    Well I'm going to play the chinese beta based on instructions I found at FOH. I'll post them here later if they actually work for me.

    i have no faith in NCsoft anymore :o. ive been playing lineage 1 since 2002-2003 and they have a real knack for abandoning developments/updates and not taking care of botters after a while :dunno:

    anything handled by NCSoft Austin = destined to fail. if you want this game to have any shot at success you better pray it stays under the NCSoft Korea branch :o

    even better if it isnt ftp, though if it ever came out in the US as a ptp i'll expect alot more than just those nice graphics.

    It's decent, I'd have to play more to decide if I want to buy it. Guess I'll wait for the US beta.

    It's ok, I got to level 10, switched to ranger and sort of lost interest, especially because I know I won't be playing the character after tomorrow.

    I know it's NCSoft but does it play like every other Korean MMO? I see the UI. I just could never get into how unsmooth the gameplay was in Lineage.

    Played the beta event last weekend. Gamestop preorders get keys that let you into the remaining 3 prerelease events. Plays really well on my machine, looks really good, could be cool.
