Closed beta started on the 14th I think, not yesterday. Great game so far, but going to wait until open. That way I don't have to regrind everything due to the character wipe. Really worth trying out.

Ah, yes, the post got moved. This one was a while in the making. :)

Fixed that sentence to better reflect when closed beta was launched.

im liking the game so far and as far as players mobbing npc all you have to do is hit f12 and it will hide all the players and leave you the npc.Another thing is at lvl 35 you get another pet slot so you can have 4 then not sure about more at higher lvls tho. PWI has a pretty good tip page too following you will find a link:

Felt like another Eastern MMO grindfest clone to me. Deleted it already.

The game is great. Except for the high population... but that was on opening day of beta. Maybe better now.

ClickToMove == Fail
ViralAddForBoI == Fail
NonStandardUI == Fail

Your milage may vary, and you may like the game.
But, does not seem like one that will appeal to the US market.

I'm really digging this game. It has that hack n slash, kill everything that moves, till the last monster feeling to it. And I love the fact that it IS NOT using the Perfect World engine and still looks pretty good to me.

And yes, F12 will hide all other players if they are mobbing an NPC. The BOI Blog site has a few nice little tidbits of info you can check out there such as that, very helpful.

Great to hear you all are understanding the gaming culture over here. Really not looking for a clone of WoW, but there are certain conventions that the vast majority of U.S. players will expect to see in any major MMORPG.

Will certainly have a look at the final product.

Best of Luck

I'm having a good time with this Beta. Sure there are glitches, but for a F2P game it has more depth than I expected. After all the fun i've had recently with Torchlight, I'm happy to have a new multiplayer game in the Diablo-style format (isometric view, click-to-move, etc). I just hit 20 last night and I definitely suggest folks take their time levelling and exploring.

The pet system, where any creature can become tamable, sounds very very cool! Excellent job with that one!

Unfortunately, this is 'kind of' a deal breaker for me - "no, take your hand off of those WASD keys, this game is click to move."

This is just a matter of preference but need my WASD keys. This takes me back to when I was in beta for Shadowbane. Although it was a decent game, I just couldn't commit to purchase the retail version because of the point and click movement.

I wonder:
Should we start asking for a WASD movement for Diablo III already? Hell, Titan Quest been out for a while now and seem noone care enough to ask for a WASD movement.

So, just because it has a MMO word in the title means that it has to have WASD movement?

So, if Diablo III come out without WASD should we expect to see reaction like: "Diablo III is a FAILURE, it does not have WASD movement" @.@?

Why is it WASD movement so important if the game was meant to play at GOD VIEW mode? Should we start asking for WASD movement for RTS game now since they were meant to play at GOD VIEW mode. Hell, Startcraft II is about to come out. What if it does not have WASD movement?

If the game was designed to play in 1st person mode or shoulder view 3rd person mode then I can understand for the WASD movement but I just don't understand the reason for a god view type of game to have it.

May be people just like to have a choice no matter how weir it is.

@Vamp

Just saw your post right after I submitted mine. That makes me feel much better. Might have to at least give it a try.

What? No comment on the complete rip off of movie sets used in the 1-20 zones? That alone made me quit since it was obvious this won't be a game with pathos, it will just be a grindy Asian game full of Western set pieces straight out of any movie in the last 10 years.

Ofc being able to kill "The Scorpion King" was a little bit of a laugh once you got over the indignity of a company that blatantly steals intellectual and/or copyrighted material.

This is not an MMO. Just because there are thousands of other people running about doesn't make this an MMO. This is more like Diablo than anything else.

...and remember that this is a port of a game already released (similar to Aion) so all the work being done to implement game mechanics comes long after the game itself was developed.

Right, because AAA game makers never create quests, characters or stories based off of someone else's intellectual property. If you've played WoW, you should at least be familiar with the Linken questline, or the few questlines revolving around Harrison Jones.

Oh dear, hurray for uneducated brats....
Fyi BOI is based on lots of mithologies and "weird stories". From the scorpion king, (wich actually EXISTED go wiki it, you know the wikipedia right? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_Scorpion)
To Easter Island and Beowulf, and yes, him too is from mithology...

So before talking trash and showing the world how uneducated and obnoxious you can be, pay a visit to wiki and get your facts right.

Wiki is your friend.

I was going to write a rebuttal to all this fanboy decrying, but then I realized that if anyone is still gushing over this mediocre game then there's not point in arguing with them.

It's a derivative game that borders (if not blatantly) steals hollywood treatments of common mythology. I'm guessing this is for the 12yr old crowd who think looking something up on Wikipedia is considering citing sources.

Before you bother flaming me anymore about "research" go crack open a freaking history book and read about the real Scorpion King or Jade Emperor and learn a little about real history and myth. You might be surprised at just how wrong you really are.
