Did you ever play APB? Granted they offered more graphic options but performance wise it was horrible.

Yeah I played it a quite a bit considering my fleeting attention span. I don't recall performance issues. Either I was having too much fun to notice, rose colored glasses, or my machine is a beast.

DC Universe Online uses the same engine, has HUGE maps, and none of the performance issues that APB has.

Unless they pull off some magic (including fixing all the rampant cheating) I just don't see this surviving 6 months after launch.

That's why you are a "worker" and other people are business owners....way to see the bigger picture!

I hope I get picked also....I agree that the game, as it was, wasn't worth a monthly sub.....BUT....since it's going to be free to play you won't have to worry about a monthly sub.

If many of the issues are addresses then I can see myself paying to play the game.

I'm hoping the fact I paid money for the original game and signed up for the beta they sent me will get me in.

It's a pity this starts "this week" and not "today" since I need something to do while waiting for Rift Headstart.

Probably not the best idea for them to drop a beta on the week a large MMO release is coming out.

Well, I think a lot of the first chance applicants were previous owners of the game. As a previous owner, I'd assume you had a vested interested in the game being good, as you paid for it already and might like to play again. I applied, hopefully I get in. The game definitely had some fun moments. It definitely wasn't worth a monthly sub, though.

So far the devs seem like they at least understand the problems and the game from a design perspective. Hopefully they are able to tweak the necessary things to make it more fun.

So they have a line of applicants, of those they're giving a select few keys to get in another line to be accepted into the game?

I realize this isn't exactly uncommon however it would be nice if they actually pretended like the people they are inviting are actually bug hunters and not just leeches just looking for an early go at the game.
