33 hours of played time.
Yet there is a DAY and NIGHT difference between my impression of the game, by playing it alone and by playing it with RL friends.
The scaling epicness of every little dynamic event is just glorious if there's a group of 50 people running around and wrecking havoc - most of them don't know each other, but there's that innate feeling of playing together for a common cause. There's no creep stealing, no turning away when you see others are doing your "quest" and it will take forever - nah, you fight whatever you're facing as a crowd and if you see someone downed, you hurry to get him back on his feet.
Just freaking loved playing it.
The PvP was hilarious - a pity one couldn't queue as a group yet, so we were forced to play against each other but it certainly has potential to be competitive upon game release.
Looking forward to a launch date, whenever that is - but for now, I am looking forward to the next Beta in a month from now
I'm not a gamer but strangely I am very interested in this game. I blame Chron's original post and reading the short excerpt of the upcoming book.
For a new player on a scale of 1 to 10 will it be very difficult to get up to speed on the game?
