People defended Chavez in Venezuela, too, yet step-by-step he adopted dictatorship powers one after the other. Arresting and hassling journalists. Needed "Emergency power to pass law by decree" -- the "dictator" in "dictatorship". Arresting and jailing opposition politicians.

Here we see it and we saw it in Turkey when their leader started outlawing Twitter and whatever for exposing his corruption.

So this is a new game or it's been out for over a year in Asia? If so, how can there be nothing on the classes -- their own web side doesn't even have clicks for what the 10 skill trees do.

Anyone play a high-end healer? Were you wanting more challenge by greatly weakening passive healing, and taking a power that healed sickest party member and picks a random member instead?

Maybe so, but in other games where I did play a healer, stuff that reduced the burden of tracking individuals was always welcome. You then just had true emergency issues to deal with deftly. Here they seem to be deliberately going the other way to give the healer some "game".

Are they fixing a problem that isn't broken?

I don't know here. Healers?

Not only that but the palette is just too brown. Faithful to the material it may be but next to its MMO contemporaries it just seems murky.

We donít want to wear brown and grey clothes. We do that in real life and itís hard to stand out among friends and other players when you all look so dull.

So effing right. This is the most drab game I've ever seen.

In Reamde (note the misspelling) by Neal Stephenson, he describes a giant MMORPG, and in it (among other things) is a tonge-in-cheek battle going on between the Earthtone Coalition and the Forces of Bright.

The former would be games like this and DDO and Turbine stuff. The latter would be things like typical Asian MMORPGs and Tera Online (especially the Popori homelands, which make Thomas Kinkade, Painter of Light look like a guy with a broken brown grease pencil.) Tera is really both wrapped into one, depending on zone.

I gave this one a whirl but just cancelled earlier today, with 2 weeks left to go on my free month.

I have to say the quests are very well done -- most have a lot more to do than just go kill things, that's just one part of it.

I just can't take regular questing anymore. It feels hollow after 15+ MMORPGs over the years, no matter how well done.

The genre needs to move on, with dynamic, changeable worlds, or something. These things are on the horizon, so we shall see.

Ugh... when is the zombie craze going to end? When is the multiplayer survival pk fest going to end? You would think people would be sick of both by now.

Until NPC AI is equal to the intelligence, randomness and stupidity of human behavior, you'll most likely see more zombie games; or you'll see future generations act more like zombies. Whichever comes first.

The problem with AI is that, as long as MMORPGs use the tank/heal/DPS model, they will never progress.

From an AI point of view, a tank is like an island in the Pacific during WWII -- strategically, you can just ignore and sail around many of them. Their low DPS makes them useless.

...except for the artificial taunt power. Nobody goes after tanks first in PvP because it's stupid. So get rid of it in PvE, then AI can get to some real work.

Ya got no taunt, ya got no tank, then the 20+ year old model can finally move on, and you won't have excruciating, embarrassing, shameful designs like Star Wars MMOs where non-lightning Jedi must be tanks because they are melee end of story.

Let proper controller classes come up to flower and get rid of these asinine isles in the Pacific.

I'll bet the one thing it doesn't have is an actual live invasion, far and away the most exciting thing for an MMORPG, vastly exceeding even PvP warzones, and something I've seen once in UO, once in EQ, and several times in the sad shutdown events of several.

Morpheii! Morpheii everywhere!

What I really found I missed yesterday, was after turning auto loot on, I had no idea what I was looting, and found no way to turn it on in the chat window, which meant I would have to open my inventory to see the new stuff every time.

Did you solve this problem?

Well, bought it, hope springs eternal. Took all night to download via update/patcher. Lots of sliders in character creation, including vital hip, waist, butt, and boob sliders. Face sliders (jaw, cheek, mouth) barely do anything.

Started tut with my char, it freezes for 5s every minute or so. I'll play with settings I guess.

What I usually do to make a char is use the randomize button until I find the look that I like. After that I fine tune it from there.

Yep, were having lots of fun exploring the world. itís fun to find random mines and caves to wonder around in. If you are looking to get your lock picking skills up, find a river, they seem to like putting a lot of chest around rivers.

I know absolutely nothing about the game qua MMORPG. I am a sorcerer, can they lockpick or is it tied to the thief class?

You can pump her booty way up, then use the gut slider to get rid of her beerbelly. Face sliders (jaw, cheek, mouth) barely do anything.

Still don't know much about it. The site is slow and doesn't say anyway, so went to wikipedia. "There will be four classes: (fancy names for tank, healer, caster, and backstabby guy)."

Monthly cost doesn't bother me as I have a job and spend more than that eating out every day. I want something fun to play.

I can't find the article -- just a couple of brief quotes from an interview.

I can understand his reasons for wanting to work on this, he's clearly deeply passionate about it, but it baffles me that supposedly smart people are happy taking a paycheck from such a scummy company.

You would refuse 2 billion? Be honest with yourself.

No, I would sell out in a hearbeat, then go feel like shit about what I did in my summer home in the Alps, between day trips to Paris for lunch.

This really IS Genius. Makes you wonder why no other Devs have ever implemented the idea.

Doesn't GTA 5 do this?

Were they doing it with cheaters or just griefers?

Both, and they get thier own pools. Cheaters play with cheaters and greifers play with greifers.

And cheater-griefers who do both go off on their own, kind of like how MMORPGs have normal servers, PvP, RP, and the famed RP-PvP, which I play on.

"Thou sonofabitch!"

How many sliders do you get in the character creator? I was completely disgisted with Skyrim.

If this game used the Guild Wars model (buy-to-play, no subscription), I would consider trying it. But since it also has a subscription, I'm out.

Well, until it goes F2P, which might be quite likely.

Subscription does not bother me -- I am not a poor student.

What bothers me is spending hundreds of hours furnishing an online space while paying 8 years of monthly, and then it is all ripped away and closed because they'd rather use the servers for Guild Wars 2 or 3 or whatever.

I can't read crap on that web site on my phone -- clearly it was generated by a chimpanzee who used a web layout tool not cognizant of certain popular phone browsers used by over 50 million people.
