This game worth a second look yet?

It would be for me if they were to add a minimap. Does it have one of those, yet?

No, not really. The Dev team has made extraordinary mistake after extraordinary mistake when dealing with this game. The best part was that in ONE patch they managed to take the game from a F2P Juggernaut to an unplayable mess. You can check my previous posts for description of the HORRIBLE choices made, and they're STILL trying to retract the mess that patch caused after 2 years...

But yeah, if you want a F2P game with some decent gameplay to tide you over for any upcoming releases, try AoC, or wait for DCUO to hit the Freemium market.

Yes. It's worth a second look. They have been a bit slow to react to the mass migration away from the game with their crazy cash shop decisions but they ARE slowly but surely returning to a standard F2P price structure.

Seeing as how it's one of the best F2P's quality-wise and their endgame is so fascinating it's definitely worth the investment (just time) to go try it out.

Make sure you read up on the endgame. Clever stuff.

I dont know Ping, I almost always agree with you, but here I gotta go the other way, mate.

It could possibly be because I played in the ORIGINAL OB (I think you did too, I thought I read you saying that...hmmm) so the dramatic change FROM that to what it is now has me seeing it as the direct opposite of what it should be, as opposed to someone who never played in the Original OB may think its just a natural mechanic to crank in a few bucks.

I dont know, perhaps my observations from Pre-Gipat to Post-Gipat has me saying "NAAAAAAAY!!" to a return.

This is likely gonna sound a bit hypocritical but I am in the same boat. I TRIED to return to Allods and could not. It's ruined for me. I suppose I could be classified as "bitter."

That being said I think it's a good game and I think the developers are slowly undoing the damage. I think someone jumping in without my "baggage" is likely going to enjoy themselves.

So I recommend it but can't play it myself. It's a weird situation.

Would it be pessimistic of me if the first thought that sprung to mind is "how much is this going to cost?"

Nice to see them adding arbitrary vanity stuff but I would much rather have them address more game related issues.

Honestly the part that bugs me most is the fact they have zero information on the sight for this.
AND the new customization options are locked to only people RE-creating characters, not new ones in general. Which smacks of just plain bull$%&^, unsurprising though coming from these guys...

Yep, Im as close to being shocked as I am to being a Homosexual. And I love fat broads...so Im on the exact opposite end of the spectrum from gay.

But yeah....if "shocked" is the first reaction to ANYTHING odd or stupid this game does....its like....reallly? You expect something different?

Slightly OT but...

...I have to say, I'm a little weary of straight oriented humor...but I couldn't stop laughing after reading your fine example. I think you may have made my night. :)

I was sure the update included a vendor where you can change your established character

If this game had left items/features like THIS to be their only cash shop options I'd still be playing.

Well, just so we're on the same page, I have no problems or phobias against Homosexuality. If someone is that way, then they're that way. Its their life, I refuse to say or comment or pass judgement on how one prefers to live their life. I have no problems or hate towards anyone of that preferance.

hehe If the spambots were smart their messages would include the game title, the words "moron" "clueless" and "free" with a smattering of "Fail" and we wouldn't be able to tell them from most posts. hehe
(just a joke, I'm guilty sometimes too)

I hope those things are something you kick for points and not a playable race.

They are really tiny and travel in packs of three and watching them fight mobs is hilarious. They flip all over the place.

I've always chosen toons in MMOs where they looked harmless/cute but then kicked major butt and these are pretty much the epitome of that.

If they would only get rid of the pay2win that is the runes from the cash shop I would be playing this game right now.
