I've been playing this for about 2 months. Meh. It's almost like vanilla WoW. Not because it is great, but because it lacks so many things that MMO's have now. Customizable interface. Macro function. Mouse over healing. Click healing on grids. Only 3 PVP maps, that are small. Limited upgrades. Many servers are dead and it took them 3-4 months to even mention server moves. That's a long time to be on a server with nothing to do. This is the only MMO I've played in recent memory where leveling up is a chore. Why? Because they intentionally spread out quests so you have to repeatedly run across 3-4 zones to get anywhere. Even with a mount it seems you spend 50% of your time running/riding and 50% actually playing. Levels are designed to make you run further than need be. Who designs a door then puts a wall immediately on the other side so you have to run around the wall? Elevators that you are constantly waiting on. Seriously...it's like they couldn't think of better time sinks than making people run the long way around. And why am I running everywhere? We have speeders, jet packs, hyper drives and I run more than World of Warcraft where you ride horses.
