The armor and some characters look like a direct rip from WoW (and before you say anything I know they weren't the first).

You know it's Ex-Blizzard staff who created this game right?

So did they rip it, or take their own designs with them?

They don't own the designs they did, just like a Mcdonalds worker doesn't own the burger they make.

That analogy makes no sense, whatsoever.

PS: The whole "WoW clone/rip-off!" remarks are getting so out of hand, that we now have ex-Blizzard employees being accused of plagiarizing... themselves!

That is a terrible analogy considering that the McDonald's works follow instructions to make the same thing over and over. Designers may use a theme but they make something unique. Granted they still don't own anything they created while working their.

I like how you used unique. When clearly the whole conversation was how the Tauren in the screen shot is not wearing unique armor (in the fact that it has been used in another game already). Also that fire mage looks pretty iffy as well.

I'm just saying that I for one don't want to play an exact clone of WoW.

Last, my analogy is perfect in that you cant recognize that every burger is "unique" and made a bit differently even though they use a "template." If you've eaten there you'd know that.

Ya I saw those screenshots, and for a second I swore it was a Wow Tauren... doesn't bode well.... Really screams theft.

Okay, you say we won't get kicked out at the end of the 24 hour period...

...but what if we just STAYED LOGGED ON ??

Barring server resets and the trained cat not hitting my space bar ever 15 or so minutes to stop from idling in-game?

Does that mean so many people are playing the game, that I can't play?

Would make sense, considering Ive been stuck at the splash art screen at start-up before Windows kills the game due to an error...

@DevilSei Well the website itself seems to be up now, it's just sort of slow. I'm installing the client now. Took five hours to download it. DX

I have to ask - are you being serious?

I've tried 4 times now from this link and it hasn't worked for me. I'm obviously not trying again - but did it really work for you or are you teasing?

Update: 3 out of the 4 accounts I made started to work - just now.

Funny as I tried two of them just an hour ago and they still weren't working. Two were created 13 hours ago and one of those just started to work (the other still doesn't) - while the other two started to work at the same time.

Anyway just thought I'd update that, I'd hate to leave it down as they weren't working when they now are.

I registered from the link in the article and it did two things - jack and squat...

So I used the link and registered again - and again it did those same two things.

I'm confused - it worked for some of you? It just tells me my name and / or password are incorrect when I try to log in (and yes I did verify my accounts).

To anyone reading - see my latest reply to comment above mine. Some of my accounts using this link are now working. So it doesn't just do jack and squat :D Tho it did for the first 13 hours it was supposed to work for me for some reason *shrugs* (and yeah I'm in EDT so I'm translating the time right :P
