It's actually pretty fun..I've tried their closed beta events and its very similar to WoW but different. They're having open beta for 6 days starting on the 15th if you wanted to try it out before release.

I'm looking forward to the game, just got myself into the last beta. Been looking for a good mmo game (hated wow) that is similar to DAoC. Hopefully this one will fit my needs. Any chance a guild might be made for the forum members when the game comes out

edit: its telling me to update my directx, but i'm at directx 11. I dont get it, then when I try to update I get errors

second edit: found out my problem and fixed it, now just waiting to join in on the last beta

I just signed up for the Beta. It's really hard to compete with WoW with how robust it is. Sure, it may have it's faults compared to newer MMO's that have better graphics or newer features. But the depth of gameplay and the amount of content are what keep me playing WoW.

I'll give this a shot if I get in to the Beta, though.

Edit: Got my 6 day invitation, I'll install it during lunch and try it out tonight after my raids (WoW).

DaoC was loads of fun. I'm definitely lookun forward to something similar. Actually I'd love to see a UO2, but the typical WoW gamer can't handle UO's brutality. Hehe.

If I can get the beta installed and I'm able to play, I'll write a short review.


Not to knock wow, but it's pooh IMO.

Keep me updated. I've wanted to find another game similar to UO. WoW was great until I needed to find a guild that had a great 10 man and 25 man group. I'm a completionist... Since UO had no dungeons/raids/armor etc, it was the best mmo I've ever played.

well from what it looks like now (can't say much being I'm only level 17) it seems to be great. Has some elements like wow obviously, but the rift combat is similar to Warhammer Armor, also from what it looks like, can be bought and gained through pvp and pve depending on what your main focus is in game. Don't know if that helped any

Mindz, what server/guild/char in UO?

I was on Chesapeake. My guild was The Dark Arcane (tda), Aka "-Z-" We were a kick ass pvp guild. I was a 7xgm healer Mage. Yay GM resist!


As for Rift, I just started. It def has a DaoC feel and maybe what UO2 could have been. But I haven't seen pvp yet...


Mindz, want my beta info? Share the account?

Hemlawk,

I was part of El Cartel on Baja. I know they moved back and forth to peake, atlantic, etc. We were the guild that stopped EFL from their "world tour of dominance".

Soulless was our GM, with other characters such as nox vomica, VileStyle.

I just downloaded the beta. installing now. Let me see what I think of the game first. What shard/server/faction are you on?

I started on Faemist PVP,
Defiant
Rogue, assassins/nightblade

Never started witha rogue class before. Always been a mage (aside from dope chops, the one hit legend, but he was my 3rd toon.)

I'll create a char on stonecrest tonight when I get home.

If the pvp is going to be as crappy as wow was (battlegrounds and arenas were the only place you could find pvp with any regularity, world pvp was dead), then I'll be going strictly pve. I work until 11pm and then get home at 11:30pm PST. I'll be hoping online then.

don't think there are bgs, think most of it is open world (on a pve server I killed a player in open world, so I'm basing off that)
