That is a pretty accurate sum-up of the game! The beta's one of the worst I've ever been in ... but not because it's a bad game. On the contrary it has the makings for an awesome and spectacular gaming event. If they had said that they were releasing it this summer sometime, I would believe it and say that it would be ready by then. January 30th? No. Not possible. Not unless they have another whole beta group going on much newer software. I've been beta testing it for almost 3 months now and there is no way in the world it's ready to go. I wouldn't PAY for this game at this time. It's hard enough to play it for free.
