    Default Swordsman Online Open Beta 1st July (3rd July)




    Played this game for 2 weeks in CBT. And I have to say its actually pretty good. Even though, im very skeptic with F2P MMO's. This game suprised me, its has alot of content and fluid skill animations. It also has arena pvp and open world pvp. Guilds play a big role in this game, also PKK guilds are back. If you're a total carebear this game might not be for you. Since there will be PK at the lv30+ world maps. It wasnt total gank fest. Because the rewards for PKing arnt that good, and there are certain penalties. The graphics are top notch imho. I really like the art style. The schools(10 classes) also play very different and are pretty unique.

    I usually don't like oriental-themed MMOs for some reason, but you know what? I think I might just have to play this one. I'll most likely play as a chick, but still.
    I liked it more when I was Samus'es girdle.

    I'll give it a try. Looks pretty decent. I like how u said skill animations are fluid, because I really need a game with fluid animations like C9. :X

    Hopefully the dl won't be that big tonight. Thanks Beatrix.

    How much of a grind is there in the PVE side, though? That's what my biggest complaint with Wushu was. GO HERE, DO THIS, SIT HERE.. FOR 50 MINUTES OMG SO MUCH FUN NEXT GEN *throws money at screen*

    I was really surprised by this game. I looooove the combat. Couldn't get into Age of Wushu, but I'm really liking this so far. Got to about lvl 25ish and stopped. Didn't wanna progress much more since the wipe was gonna happen.

    Honestly. Theres enough variety in the quests and the actual story that you don't notice the grind until you hit the later levels. Especially since not every quest is just kill x or go to y. Theres fun quests you do silly things too like theres on where you sabotage a foot race.

    After what PWE did to RaiderZ I will never play another game from them. Also it is really boring, bland, and easy.
    My feet hurt and I'm having trouble peeing.

    A very, very slight semblance to Kal Online in the world sense.

    Bah wasted time downloading this. Visuals are OK, it's a little dated that characters don't move their faces at all feels like 90's game lol But the rest looks decent, classes seemed OK. Questing usual boring chinese style with auto move (stupidest "feature" to ever grace MMOs).

    But the most important thing (to me at least) the combat just felt so bad.... Having to stay still while attacking felt so unnatural and restricting and purely idiotic it ruined the whole game to me, I can't remember the last time I seen clunky combat in an MMO like it's here. WTF were they thinking in this day and age ??!!!

    Combat is a little clunky at first but atleast the PvP requires skill. You get your first good set of skills at level 20 so I would wait until atleast then to judge the spells/classes

    I am sure it takes skill.
    However, if the required skill is the ability to defeat the horrible combat system better than the opposition, who cares?

    Depends on what you mean. There are several skills that can be used while moving but the majority can't. Almost every skill is a dash, jump, and block cancel-able. Forced Move (press alt and a direction during a skill animation in exchange for stamina points) lets you immediately cancel the animation of any move. Lot of people use it from throw mixups.

    This is what the game looks like when played by non-shitters: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJTu325bsL0

    Finally made a character last night and leveled to 40 really quick. Noticed a few things:
    A) many of the guilds from blue dragon are here. Goons, the filthy viets, demigodz, et cetera. Expect to be gangbanged if you killer a ganker or gank someone yourself
    open pvp is very gear oriented. It doesn't completely decide fights. But I've been dropped in single combo by with highly upgraded weapons
    C) people seem to not be grasping the game. I'm currently 25/1 in the arena. I don't know what changed between now and open beta, but many of the people I fought didn't dodge or block anything. Just slowly walk toward me and burn every cooldown
