@corpusc

I would hardly call it a clone. I feel that "clone" is thrown around a way to liberally. They are both fantasy action based MMO's but both of them do things their own way. Calling one a clone of the other just insults both in my opinion. Anyway, other than that I do agree that it is pretty cool, especially for only being in alpha.

I'm also enjoying RaiderZ way more than any other F2P MMO I've beta'd in a long time. Very impressed. Took down a BAM-like creature last night and it was awesome. Reminded me quite a bit of Tera. The combat mechanics are very similar. You know combat is good when you can't help but kill mobs along your way, even when they aren't part of a quest.

I was under the impression that it was more of Monster Hunter type of game.

@(Unverified) RaiderZ IS a clone. If you have even played it you will notice that every aspect of the game is a cheaper rip off of TERA. Mining and gathering nodes? "True action" combat? Although, it's not really true action because the engine they use is not as precise as TERA's.

things ARE called clones way too often.

DESPITE that, anybody calling RaiderZ a Tera clone is spot on, and i have a hard time seeing how you can say its not, other than to buck a cliche.

just cuz you identify a cliche doesn't mean there is never a valid use of that cliche.

overall its a good game. clones can be good.

and its great to have clones of unique things. so now there's 2 Tera-like games, versus 450 or so EverQuest-like things.
