From Alpha to Open Beta, this game has grown a lot in each iteration. I must admit that I was ticked off at SE during the surplus bonanza in phase 3, but having recently spent some good time with Open I must say I see a great future for this MMO. From social functions, which still need tweaking, to UI resolutions, also need a little more tweaking, I feel that this game has a bright future. Yes the cooldowns are a little intense, but they will certainly get balanced better once there is more content. The launch of all MMOs are rough. This one will have its problems but the long term looks good for this game. The adjustments made over the past few months indicate to me that SE is dedicated to making this one of the best out there instead of just a gimped XI clone with a pretty face. Personally I cannot wait for launch but the first expansion will be my real measure of this game's success, because by then it should be rolling real well. Just thought I'd share my new found optimism for this game as the weeks leading up to Open were so negative that I almost regretted building my new PC!

Even the few improvements while OB has been out have been great. I'm probably the only person that is disappointed that they aren't patching everyday still. Each time I log on I actually hope for a patch because it means they are fixing something and there will be one less problem at launch. Nice to see a positive post, there are so few out there.

Yeah i have really high hopes for it, things change a lot over time, look at XI, or WoW, or any successful MMO. The dev's make take a bit to make adjustments but in time the most needed ones will most likely be taken care of.

Can't wait to see more of this game upon release, i have a very good feeling we'll see some really spectacular sights and mobs in the very near future.

That would be great. The closer the release date, the less hope I have for a miracle turnaround. Will still be waiting for release day, but I'll let someone else fork out the money.

+1 I'm disappointed too. =) But there was only one day they didn't.

I just want the lag and random crashing to be gone. The beta will probably continue to have it with all of the testing going on, but I'm optimistic that it will be better or fixed at or soon after retail release. Many people have it in their heads that the beta is for the players but really we're just doing some work for SE. This isn't a try before you buy, this is an exchange of sneaking a peek at the game for labor. The game itself has plenty of great ideas and implementations but they keep getting overshadowed by things that are most likely not going to be fixed until release.
