Im not trying to troll you guys here, but whats the problem with Bigpoint? Im probably behind the curve here with Browser-Based games, so I have no clue whats' what in terms of developers to avoid / follow and junk, but this looks like a pretty good game.

@Faction 3 To each his/her own, imo it's a Bigpoint = pass.

Give one of the games a shot, you might love it or you might come back here and pass too. :)

@Faction 3 Free to explore, expensive to play.

To each their own, you might like it.

Really, eh?

Hmmm. I'll still give it a whirl, just to see. But the confession of being P2Win is a bit disheartening, and I really dont blame you guys for passing on that issue alone. Im simply giving it a go because its Browser-Based, so no Download.

Thanks dude, and thanks Equllian. Appreciate the feedback.

@aaradun Actually, I just tried this as I was bored - it's like a totally different game company. Looks good, good UI, plays well (tho I'm still in tutorial) and NO download prior to launch.

I hated BSG Online, this gives a much better first impression.

Introducing the next title from Bigpoint!!!

Titled "Mad Dash for Cash" the objective will be to run around the world looting. Bigpoint states "Theres no sense in spending extra time killing when players only want loot." When asked about the cash shop, bigpoint replied "Two words. Speed Boots. Since it's just looting, whoever gets there first wins! It's ideal for both the players and Bigpoint".

@Equillian

In other news, Bigpoint's working on a new game titled "Air" where the cash shop offers your character the air they breathe. You can still play completely free, abiding you hold your breath.

So this is what happened to the great old Pirates of darktide game. (That or they copied it bit for bit.) LOVED that old game, but the second I saw "bigpoint" listed, I immediately passed. That name will soon be in the dictionary under the word "crap" and "scam" - also see "bigpoint"
