This looks outstanding! Can't wait to see it in the game.

Yeah don't hold your breath. Star Vault are masters of making really interesting looking videos of a game with no substance and barely basic functionality let alone polish. Frankly, I'm shocked they can still fund the game.

Until it is in the game and working videos mean absolutely nothing.. Bet let the hype keep on rolling.

@pocketsdathief Agree! Does look/sound good, but then the whole game (basically) did, and hasn't ever come close to delivering.

@pocketsdathief That's unfortunately the way this type of change to Mortal Online needs to be approached. Do not resub for 3-4 weeks after this patch goes live so that the servers can remain up for more than a few hours and hopefully the major exploits are fixed.

Hey Rohn maybe you will answer me here. You said many, many times the population was surging. The recent financials show that is not the case and that MO has been bleeding subs.

So where did you come up with the pop is surging when it really has not been?

Awesome, more shite for Starvault to break...

Haha I played this back when it was in Closed Beta wave A. Don't let anyone get there hopes up.

I don't know why, but I played the beta and thought it might get better,so I preordered it...biggest waste of money ever. I quit in less than a week, this game should be ashamed to charge a sub fee.

Didn't you have to buy MO to get into the beta? Unless you are talking about open beta.

Yes, you did. I unfortunately made that mistake and bought the collectors edition.

Yeah you did have to preorder to get into beta. My thinking was a bit off. What I meant was that I preordered, played the beta and was not really impressed but thought perhaps it would improve over time, thus I didn't cancel my preorder for a refund.

Which I really regret to this day.

Me too, I got so hyped for this game. Couldn't wait to be a crafter, or a pkk. But no, Beta Phase A and open beta killed it for me, worst $75 investment I've ever made.

"had a rough time in the court of public opinion since its June 2010" That's got to be the biggest understatement ever written on this site! Everything I hear about this title is very bad, including that their on the knife's edge of complete bankruptcy and closing down any day now. They had some ideas, pity they've never been able to deliver... Been an absolute train-wreck since day-one.

You are right here is their latest financials.

They are leaking money like a waterfall and there hs not been an increase in subs for the last 3-4 quarters.

I think the appropriate introduction would have been "Mortal Online is finally starting seeing some sand it it's theoretic sandbox", rather then "sandier".

A couple things:

-People who still complain about how bad beta was have no idea what the game plays like now.

-The coming territory patch seems like a step in the right direction but SV seriously need to fix the bugs that still exist, such as the ability to exploit into keeps and log out inside keeps, game performance issues like memory leaks, etc.
