    also that login error is purely your router/firewall/pc's fault.
    That login has aboslutely nothing to do with my firewall/port or anything like that - thanks for the insight though, its on there end....check the forums + reddit like you says.

    And so far, you seem to be the only one whos has any kind of praise + positive feedback on the regards to how its being handled, as most of us on the technical forum, experience the same issues, but that aside.

    I finally sorted it, got it working (And can assure you, wasnt my end, was theres), but either way, optimization is still diabolical, 13 fps, 35 with low res.

    Terribad!

    Weill wait for more optimization.

    what are your specs?
    a lot of people are reporting huge gains since last patch (i never had any problems to begin with).

    i'm the only one? lol carbine is being praised by everyone pretty much, they're awesome.

    I hadn't played since one of the earlier weekend betas, so this is a definite step up for me. Got a little account issue fixed in a couple hours, got in and have my fps at 40 for once. Yay Wildstar. <3

    I'm.......extremely unimpressed. I don't know, what killed it for me I think was the character customization. It's just horrid as all hell. Extremely limited, hell I've played F2P games with better customization. Everything just feels so.......bland.

    The visuals really aren't very impressive either.

    I guess if I had to say a positive is........I guess I like the aurin run animation...and the humor is all right?


    I don't know, I'm just not seeing a subscription fee here. More power to you all if you like it, I just don't.

    game really opens up past 15, it's VERY focused on warplots and dungeons/raiding, it's extremely well done.
    the questing is horribly bland and uninspired, but atleast they haven't released the main story so that might be well made, because the foundation for a good story is definitely there.

    yes, the customization is poor, but they're working on it + working on every race having access to every class.
    also the visuals are gorgeous and looks a lot better than that other recent game

    No you get 3 boxes at launch, which you can use once a day. So you won't be getting them till the official launch.

    For each day players log in
    I'm not sure if you assumed only 3 total, but you acquire 3 every day you log into the beta. These boxes will, however, only be given once the game launches, and apparently you can only open 1 or 3? every 22-24 hours or something close to that.
    Current Games:

    Overwatch (NA - PC)
    Battleborn (NA - PC)
    Albion Online (CBT)

    Waiting for:

    No Man's Sky (PC)
    Chronicles of Elyria (PC)

    well, decided to play as an Engineer in OB. Got to level 8 yesterday and some initial views on the bots. First, unlike some of the people on the official forums, I do find them useful right now. Blitz + Arty bot AoE + shotguns and lightning is awesome, and Blitz itself is great for taking the heat off me when fighting mini-bosses. However, I definitely agree that they need an AI upgrade, at least with bruiser bot. It will absolutely not close in to attack any enemies that get out of range of it, so I have to fling it with Blitz when I want it to be useful. They also really, really need to add behavior stances (aggressive, defensive, passive), cause right now there's just attack, stop, and go to, and it becomes a pain when I just want to rush back to the quest hub for turn-ins. Finally, and another definite agree, is a Dismiss option.

    tl;dr: If you treat the bots like abilities on legs, they're fine. Otherwise, they're dismal pets right now outside of their abilities.

    Bot problems aside, liking the Engy so far.

    Meh, it just doesn't hook me. Even Tera hooked me more, and I only played that for less then 2 days before I got bored. Everything just feels so meh to me.

    And honestly I found the visuals rather ugly, maybe it's I'm just not fond of the art style or something but visually games like GW2 and FF14 still look far superior to me by a massive degree.

    I got that also, I never really found a solution but eventually resolved itself. I imagine it's something to do with the key not being active right away.

    I'm glad I gave this game another try. I use to be part of full time testing and didn't feel the game was worth my time back when testing first began. I'm pretty impressed as to how much the game has been polished since then. Also, Engineer (which wasn't a class back in the day), is pretty dang fun!

    the tutorial/questing before dungeons can do that to you.
    they've focused so much on the end-game that the part leading up to it is ok at best once you get to ~20.

    I still wonder how many bots a engineer could have active at a time. I know you can summon 2 artillery, but you also get a utility bot, which can be summoned 2 times. Does that mean 4 at a time?

    Well, after trying it until 15, it's quite fun. Yet to try a dungeon, but should make it to 20 today. Little confused over some of the stats.
    Playing a Spellslinger, but the quest rewards are all weird. Sometimes i get Moxie, and sometimes i get something the class doesn't need at all. According to class page its Finesse Moxie Brutality for DPS and Insight Moxie Brutality. But why do some gear have Technology for light armor? Also, crafting system took little while to figure out. SHame that i keep getting error when trying tailoring.

    Quest rewards are a little weird. They let you choose from like 3 rewards, including only one that's really useable for your class, and 2 that seem useable but aren't. You have to choose carefully. (i.e.: I'm a Medic but sometimes the rewards include Light Armor, Heavy Armor. I have to carefully make sure I choose whatever the Medium Armor is)

    PS: Stats have different effects for each Class. Tech gives Damage to a Medic because their skills are Tech-based, but Tech gives Defense (I believe) to Stalkers.

    just don't judge the game over the 1-20 period, it's really weak and doesn't represent the game AT ALL.
    once you get to 20, that's when you actually get to experience the game.
    it's really unfortunate that the tutorial/beginner zones are so dull/lacking, because the dungeons are so much fun.
