At first the game was unplayable. However a few video tweaks reduced the lag to managable proportions. Surprising considering that WOW, Aion, Lotro all work well at maximum video settings. Whether or not I will be able to play the full game is unknown at present. Not really wanting to buy an expensive video card if I don't need to.
Pleased to see that SE got rid of Playonline as well as implimenting a torrent type updater similar to WOW, Aion, Etc. There have been problems with it so far, but that should be easily fixed.
Although not quite as extensive as Aion, the character creator does an excellent job of creating custom characters.
Game seems to allow Alt-Tab, although at present it causes DX error and crashes program. Note to SE: I hope you finally understand the need of a Windows game to uh "window", as well as to get along with other programs that are normally found on a PC such as security software.
Those of you familiar with LoTRO will recognize the opening instanced story line.
Death seem similar to FFXI in that you get a choice of being raised or returning to bind point. Apparetly going with equipment damage model. Another gill sink
No Auction House or Mail system yet. Hoping for WOW style mail boxes.
So far the gameplay has been confusing. While Melee/ Mage classes are easily understood I cannot understand what the other two classes are about. Things like crafting and fishing don't make sense. I can equip a fishing pole, but I can't seem to use it. While we are on the subject, why do equipped items take up inventory space?
So far looks like interesting game. Does seem SE learned a few things. However definitly an unpolished work.
