Actually the game seems quite interesting, aside from the chinese background, which you may like or not.

ACtually what is different with this game from others is that the lore is centered and built by players, with the goal of players developing the world and BECOMING its lore and history.

You have basic wuxia setting with immortal kungfu masters, main types of clans and chinese cities. EVERYTHING else is up to players in terms of lore and history.

This article forgets to mention that the game does not have exact classes(every "clan" can learn all the skills) or levels(there are no levels) and that its less of themepark and a whole lot more of sandbox, with player-run governments, etc and contains no "kill ___ of ____" type of quests.

Oh and apparently there's moral alignment system as well as alignment system with npcs, changing the way the world around you regards you and what kind of story you are the hero/villain of.

Why do the Asian's get all the good games? >:(

Sometimes it seems to me that, ironically, most recent western games are resembling more and more to the asian grinder cliché, while some asian developers are trying to propose something innovative, possibly evolving the genre which is stagnating after the WoW bubble.

Am I crazy??

It's not just you. I think the Korean and Chinese developers are innovating more and more with each gen of MMOs they create (the differences between PWI and Forsaken World for example are palpable). I don't know how they're doing it so quickly compared to their Western counterparts, but I welcome it.

Nope, its definitely not just you noticing this.

I really hope western developers will start to realize (and most importantly--actualize and implement into their games) that more 'living-in-the-world' gameplay really is something players here are starving for!

@BubleFett Yes, Snail Games are probably publishing the NA version like most other of their games.

Not bad, never heard of this game before. I might check this out when it comes over to North America. I like the non-liniar look of the and how the players run and develop the history for the game.

This looks like it could be fun! Only martial arts MMO game I've seen yet that really looks like the good Wuxia movies!

I'm sorry, but there's just no way I'm giving a Chinese company of anything on the planet my credit card number.

I know exactly where that's going to end up.
