    Yeah, it's still going and it has a 14 day trial that I'm trying it out with.

    Seemed like an OK game from the few minutes I spent playing it. I'm waiting until later tonight until I play more.

    you should play on a classic server if you are going for the retail servers. otherwise chose the freeshard server which is mostly classic (+ parts of SI).

    daoc went downhill when atlantis came out because of all the artifact crap. ML's were fun to get but the artifacts .. the artifacts ;. ;

    the game itself is great because it heavily encourages you to party/find a guild (screw questing/dailies get to lvl 6-9 and find a party to go into a dungeon/good spot thats the fastest way to level) basically lvling solo is possible but its slow and tedious. party lvling is fast and fun

    it's a lovely game!!
    although i played the f2p Uthgardt server, I can tell the game is rich and deep and has a real Camelot feel.
    i read on forums somewhere that the pvp is not a fixed single front war, but rather a whole disparate assortment of big and little wars happening at players' whims. which means it a very big diverse and rich map.

    but.. the reason why i would not play the game is because of the skating animation during combat. i do not know if they solved this in the official version yet.

    Number One forums for the game is here btw :-

    btw, gee Apoca, if u can get mmohut approval to get on the beta tester list for Shadowbane that would be so awesome. someone said the Shadowbane emu is officially approved by Ubisoft. It could be a breakout success when it returns.
    Be warned - I am a major player of Regnum Online the mmo. I've been playing it for about 2 years and rarely go without logging in at least once a day. You can also look at good alternatives to Regnum such ase Aion online and Aika Online.

    yes, there is a giant map where you can battle the other realms and you have to take keeps, claim them with your guild, then upgrade them and defend them. for every keep of your realm thats not under your control 1 of the special guards vanishes from the relic keep what makes it easier for the other realms to raid your relic keep and steal your relics ( which gives boni to your whole realm ) so there's A LOT of pvp fighting going on, night skirmishes and so on
