I wonder if they really mean angle of mast. The angle of a mast (rake) is a rather interesting point to be simulating, it can affect a boat's sailing characteristics pretty severely. I think it's more likely that they meant direction of the wind.

I mean, don't get me wrong... the idea of a robust sailing simulator built into the game makes me very, very happy. But of all the things they could simulate there are more important things than mast rake.

@foofad

It could be a translation issue. A lot of the info that comes out of the Korean beta is subject to revision because it's usually being translated by fans rather than representatives of XL.

This seems like a DREAM mmo for me.

I really don't want to wait until 2012. -__-

@Grumms I'm not hopeful we will see this before 2014 personally. If it's 2012, great, but I won't get my hopes up.

@Grumms Western release has yet to be announced so if you ware waiting on that then it will be after 2012. End of 2011 to early 2012 is the expected Korean release date, but if you are waiting for the Korean release date then why not just join open beta in November. ^_^

I sincerely hope it does well when it's released. I really want a good sandbox game to play.

Ok this might be a dumb question. Will this be F2P? I see its Korean so thats why I ask.

Man this looks to seriously trump LotRO's non-combat options and no mistake.

And that screenshot? I want to go to there.

I wish a non-griefer mmo would go into that much detail. From reading on their website its going to be a PVP ambusher's dream.

@oxlar

Not necessarily. From what I've read, two of the three continents are PvE/consensual PvP, with the third existing for the FFA/castle-siege crowd.

Maybe a better solution would be to do it by shard. I wonder if losing out on 1/3 of the content will be a big dampener for a lot of people. I do like the RvR stuff from DOAC, but if they combine it with normal questing and adventuring its going to turn off a lot of people as people will feel like they have to engage in PVP in order to play PVE.

If this game can live up to just a fraction of its promise, it will be a winner.

Do we have any idea who will be publishing this in EU/US?

After reading about ArcheAge I don't even see the point in playing current MMOs, they just seem so old, dated, and one dimentional.
