    i have got in the last 2 betas they had and i never once signed up for anything. i think they also pick random SOE accounts. they just sent me another thing saying i can play in the current cbt. i found it quite boring tbh.

    Yeah i was stoked for Landmark, But downloaded it for the CBT. My hope faded quickly. I do in fact like the engine and how the movement was, but the point of landmark is what makes it not worth the effort. When i was playing, It felt cluttered and there was little to no point. I was running around trying to find free space to stake a claim and once i did i found myself spending 8 hours trying to build a 10 foot wall. I got bored and logged out. Once i was sitting on my desktop I felt like I wasted all that time. Uninstalled.....

    So, got in game, have no idea what to do, found the "What to do in the first 10 minutes", there's no copper or trees where I was placed, so how can we make a claim flag!

    there should be copper and trees everywere, it took me only a few minutes to craft a flag and claim a spot right next to the spawn thingy
    i see where this game is going but i feel it lacks a lot of things, as if its only 20% finished. also its horribly optimized. if i wont get into the building aspect of the game i can see myself quitting fast. for now ill enjoy screwing around with crafting and the tools

    I spawned in an area with tonnes of mountains with snow, some grassy areas, no trees or copper veins in sight.

    EDIT: Anyone know why it takes forever to load, it starts up, eventually loads to 50%, then sits there for quite a while, then finally loads the last 50% and I'm in game.

    Turns out my spawn point is on an island, but like I said, no trees or veins of copper, just snow, mountains, sand, and grass of course the whole place is surrounded by water. So, there is no way for me to make a claim flag.

    I think I'm going to delete this character and try again.

    u can just switch server/islands, i thought all islands are the same though. maybe theres something wrong with your graphics? when i alt tab out and back in sometimes the ground becomes very dark not showing any ore spots. but normaly u should see like 100 ore veins on ur screen lol

    i had it load the game without any structures or ore before, but eventually it loaded for me, must be a bug that causes it to prevent loading shit for u ;/

    Landmarks isn't the main game is it? From what I understand landmarks is like the minecraft-esque f2p spinoff of the main game. The main game Everquest Next (?) will be p2p.

    Tbh I'm more excited for archeage after learning about the skill/class system and the game's focus on PvP. Also archeage will be f2p (too soon to say if it will be p2w though).

    well... i tried the landmark beta and it really is a bit boring right now without other people to chat with. The thing is, the roadmap for beta states they will implement hidden underground chests and combat system before the end of summer, so i guess it will be better later on.

    lol, how do they even detect u have a nvidia card? usualy when i let them scan for drivers i have to accept some tool running in the background scanning my system, but that was not the case when i requested a beta key.
