    No wipes? Any IP blocks for EU, since this is supposed to be NA version? Also anyone played CBT that can tell pros and cons.

    Found this:
    Q: Will Black Gold Online only publish in the NA? Is there any country block?
    A: We will launch the English version of the game in North America as a start, not ruling out the possibility of launching in other countries. There will not be a country block or IP block for the North American version of Black Gold Online at initial release, but we will adjust accordingly to ensure smooth ping across the servers.

    Neither. Swordsman is in closed alpha, not beta - to me. Too many bugs. Bad interface, bad NPC interaction, terrible combat - questing is easy mode. The only thing it has going for itself is flashy skills. Like CABAL.

    How in the world can you make that kind of judgement when you didn't even play the game for a full hour? I mean heck, you don't even have access to 1/4th of the combat mechanics at that point.

    Like, that is full retard level logic

    Spellsword looked kind of interesting so I'm gonna give it a shot when I get off work.

    For those who are trying the game out, here's the giveaway link for a bunch of cool, free items and bonuses. There's one on onrpg but my computer along with some others was having issues claiming a key.

    Got a thing for small girls with big guns, I see.

    But, yeah. I guess I'll give it a try. I feel like it's going to be one of those MMORPGs that try and sell itself on one or two big gimmicks alone and make the rest of itself just like any other grindy MMORPG (Aion, TERA, Dragon's Prophecy, etc.), but what the heck?

    Oh, and thanks for the link!

    x3 I had to try when the option was there.
    Anyway played it for 30mins and yeah, 300 ms from Europe. I'd advice waiting for a europe server unless you don't have problems with playing on Usa servers. But, what i played was kinda okay. Stuff i got in start was timed mounts, so im guessing it's cash shop with timed items. Which is B.S. How does that work? Does the clothes/mount just vanish into thin air? If i pay 5$ for a virtual mount i don't wanna keep paying for it. -.-

    I like it. I like playing around with all the classes and the cool mount thing you get. The pvp is pretty fun too. It's not a bad game if you look over a few things.

    Yes you must realize that I wouldn't say hits "horribly generic" because it is a bit fresh. But at the same time it is nothing super amazing. To me it is a good solid game, but nothing completely new and never before seen. I participated in a war last night that was pretty fun. Elandir (my side) had like 33ish people total fighting while Isenhorst had like low 50s.... we won :P. It was a good time. Also a dwarf occultist invaded the city and attempted to kill me (lvl 17 Geomancer). Since we were both healers, that fight went nowhere fast :P I eventually chased her off heehehe

    I'll be honest, it's partially just because I'm cynical of MMORPGs. So when I saw how it looked and felt how it felt right away within the first 30 minutes of playing, I ran for the hills. I've played quite a few games that look better than it up to level 30 or 40, only to find that most of it really was just a boring grindfest, with PvP being it's main selling point.

    So I decided to play a game with PvP focus that required more actual player skills, like Elsword, while I wait for Archeage to come out. I'm interested in ArcheAge because even though it has tab-target combat, it looks very impressive, and seems like it has a LOT of true CONTENT (stuff to do with no gimmicks) outside of grinding, dungeon-raiding, and PvP, and looks like a great game to explore that actually makes exploring fun. Stuff from house and fortress building, to gliding, to treasure hunting, to pirating, to justice-dealing, to farm-raising, etc, and even though there most likely will be some gimmicks, a lot of this content seems to have a lot of depth and impact, and actually have an effect on the game world and game experience, and that's what I am looking for.

    Also, personally, and it's just a personal taste, I'm tired of games having these generic-looking "fireworks" special effects, is what I call them. I don't know how exactly to describe them, they just look really dull and overly-flashy. I prefer sharp-looking special effects that look and feel like they have weight, but again, I'm just nit-picking at this point.

    Just, flashy lights and a shit-ton of spinning for everything...That being said, I DID see some special effects that I liked in BG...maybe I'll give it another try some day.

    Combat somehow bugs me. It does feel boring and clunky. Game still has some interesting features like mechs.

    Those mechs look and feel terrible, i think its a bad feature for the game.
