The screenshots are ok, but some of them look surprisingly cartooney. ArcheAge definitely looks better to me. There's basically no information on their website about actual gameplay mechanics.

Anything with the CryEngine3 is going to look spectacular, but the big question is, will it be a polished game or a feature rich? I'd hate to see another AoC hit the market, but then again I'd hate to see another WoW too; will the pain ever stop? Can there be a median? And I dont think they can actually call it RvR, I was under the assumption that DAoC trademarked that phrase?

"I'd hate to see another AoC hit the market"

Why? It's a much better game than people give it credit for, just like EVE is much easier to understand than people say it is. Never believe the hype, positive or negative, and ESPECIALLY don't believe it 2 years after launch :P

"I'd hate to see another WoW"

We need another classic WoW, since nothing fills that void. If something came along promising classic WoW, I'd play it.

"And I dont think they can actually call it RvR, I was under the assumption that DAoC trademarked that phrase?"

It's not a trademark, as far as I'm aware. Primarily because: WAR used it, and others have done so for many a year.

I played AoC for about a year, it looked amazing but the controls are crap, hesitation when initially walking and the awful combat system, "swing left, 1, 1, 1, swing right, 3, 3, 3, crack them on the head, 2, 2, 2. then level 40 hit, and I get 2 more buttons lol, ridiculous.

" We need another classic WoW, since nothing fills that void. If something came along promising classic WoW, I'd play it. "

I currently play WoW and I am tired of seeing these wana-bee copies everywhere, It would be nice to see another spectacular game come, but another WoW, why? We already have a WoW and its awesome. LOL, get over it the classic days are gone.

" It's not a trademark, as far as I'm aware. Primarily because: WAR used it, and others have done so for many a year. "

WAR used RvR because the company that made DAoC, made WAR. They can claim their own material without copyright. Anyone else that you can think of?

The combat system was literally exactly the same as everything else, but with more buttons. It was quite refreshing for a bit.

Classic may be over...so what? I still enjoyed it (and TBC) a lot. I want them back.

Realms Online and that new game with Sanya Weathers both mention it I think.

Honestly, I'm not seeing anything about the screen shots to impress me. Take WoW and put an Asian spin on things -- the result would look exactly like this. The ground is just plain color mapping with a few objects scattered around. Walls are also just color mapped. The only thing that's actually spectacular is the water.

If anyone is curious there are gameplay videos of this up on Youtube from the G*Star 2010 Korean Gaming Expo.

Doesn't look to be breaking the mold with gameplay and the graphics aren't all that super.

Still I believe this project started on Cryengine 2, seems they only recently moved across to Cryengine 3 so perhaps the gameplay vids were from the Cryengine 2 build.

For a cinematic teaser trailer, lets just say my socks are still firmly on. It doesn't seem to be pushing the graphical envelope in any way, though I respect that companies probably took a lesson from WoW's "make it playable on integrated cards" book. FFXIV, as I understand it, was a graphics masterpiece, but appears to have been an epic turd.

So while graphics doesn't mean everything to me, I'm hoping that there's something revolutionary in the gameplay to set this game apart in any way.

This is not ArcheAge, so why is it worth attention?
