    I may get this just to try it out...

    Ive heard its mostly a PvP game - is this true?

    Is there any kind of co-op crew feature? Or co-op anything?

    Ok I downloaded it and tried it last night for a couple of hours.

    Game is very unpolished but I can see me playing this for a while. The economic/trade system is awesome.

    I played closed beta and I'm playing the pre-release now. I've been in a PotBS guild since 2005. but I agree its very, very unpolished and really has not changed much from the last beta build.

    It all depends on what the developers do after the launch day.

    Im really into the economy part of the game at the moment though. Cant wait for the ports to be conquerable.

    My buddy Tills played that during open beta till he got bored.

    That nuggah plays the shit out of every new game, then bounces, so he should be pretty knowledgeable about this mmorpg.

    Paging Tills :hay:

    He's all Eve'd out currently, so you will most likely be able to find him in that thread.

    So is this game live now? I might get it if it looks like the economy and such is going to be strong.

    the economy is strong already, its the best part of the game right now. Over all its a piece of shit, but most MMORPGS are when they are first released.

    Ive been playing a good amount of it over the weekend and it is a great game. The port battles between nations is so much fun, the biggest part about the game that keeps me interested is the ship pvp. It does need work but MMO's at launch time will never be perfect with the bugs that pop up. If you enjoy slow paced strategic battles then this game is perfect.

    After playing this game since release I have to say it gets boring.

    It seems to be getting better reviews than I thought it would.

    Its tempting. I haven't played an mmo in forever and hadn't planned to again.

    But... so many 'boring' comments...
