So, people *do* read those things after all? I always thought that was an urban legend.

Not only could they not be bothered to create their own terms of service.

They also copy pasted someone elses without bothering to read it!

funny stuff.

@FrostPaw : nobody reads the terms of service for any game. Including, it seems, people who are plagiarizing it!

Have you played this game? it is the worst MMO I have ever played. Hands down, just terrible. You float above the ground (walking) Combat is atrocious, and you have no idea what anything does. Scenery is actually quite nice, but that is do to the engine, and nothing on their part.


Stay away from this game.

Not even close to the worse mmo in its current state. Yes this is embarrassing but they are a small indy developer with a small budget. People will blow this way out of proportion and just use it as an excuse to bash a game they do not like.

For there sake I hope its a busy news day.

@(Unverified) Lol seems like you haven't played this game in over a year if you still think it is this way. It's changed quite a bit and i wouldn't discourage anyone from playing it, or listen to a child such as the one who commented here.

"you have no idea what anything does"

what does that even mean? Do you blame a game because it takes a little pains to learn what to do and it's not immediately accessible?

@(Unverified) Like others have said, I guess this person hasn't played since release. I was in beta block B, and the game was so horrible, I didn't even play the game more than a couple days when it hit release.

However, I've since returned (been back for going on 2 weeks now) and the amount of progress this game has made is staggering. In my opinion, this game now blows Darkfall out of the water. It started in a waaaaaay worse condition, but now I prefer it in every way imaginable. Everything from the crafting system, to the way combat works, to the skill caps, to the player housing (you can actually choose where you place your houses/castles/keeps etc.) is better than Darkfall. But I'm biased...no skill caps + melee combat that feels like fighting with knives in counterstrike = fail in my book. Mortal has managed to get really close to the awesomeness of Mount & Blade combat (including multiple hit boxes and weapon collision detection etc.) and for an MMO that's a cool feat.

Now, are ALL of the bugs and glitches worked out? Of course not. But I have yet to play an MMO, even from a AAA company that doesn't have any bugs or glitches. But, I can't express how much better it has gotten from the state it was in during beta/release.

If you haven't played MO since release, and you actually like the sandbox PvP concepts of the game, you owe it to yourself to give it another whirl with a free trial.

Lol, now that's indie thinking. "I'm too busy coding my sparkly new sandbox and fixing this fps issue, need a Terms of Service.., hey good game, EVE eh? Yoink."

@dudes

I don't even think it is a big deal. A lot of ToS agreements are just about the same thing. Why reinvent the wheel when it already exists?

The stupid part is being so lazy that you can't read through it once to change all references to another game. That is truly as lazy as it gets.

@dudes Yeah I think they are a bunch of hardcore coders rather than legal experts, so the copy and paste explains a lot.
