    I really want to like this game, since the premisse sounds very interesting. But I also have my doubts that it'll last.

    This is as far from a regular MMO you can come without it not being an MMO. And it sounds awesome!

    The idea is good enough, but it sounds half assed maked, and if its supposed to be released at the same time as Guild Wars 2 (and maybe SWTOR), then it got no real chance.
    Being critical is a burden which some people loves to bear.

    This game is looking more and more undesirable by the day. When I first heard about it and saw the trailers, it sounded like a unique and fun concept. Now, the gameplay is coming off as generic, uninspired, and overall lackluster. No to mention the atmosphere and and world leave much to be desired.

    •No leveling system --> hmm, okay. maybe its a good thing
    •familiar places of World --> I really like that.
    •Conspiracy theories of the world (finding clues in game) --> I also like this idea.
    •all "questgivers" talks --> why have quests when you cant leveling ?
    •No classes (freedom of play) --> They need some sort of diffrent classes.
    •our Modern time. --> I like the idea, we need some new stuff, just no dragon world.
    •thousands of weapons and powers. --> Oh yes, give me more ^^
    •dress what you want to wear. --> Worse case you can go around naked.
    Because not everything is about levels. It's an adventure.
    A game can work without classes. Look at RuneScape for example, they don't have classes but they have different combat styles.

    Yay Another MMO, as long as the controls work the Interface is clean with a good chat system & the game has plenty of silly nothings to keep me interested that it will be great..

    I thought the longest journey was a good game buggy as hell but nice story...

    I've been keeping my eye on this game for the last 18 months or so, It is looking pretty neat so far, I like how the starting area is zombies. Always fun taking out those bastards. Game play does look weird, but I thought the same for AOC combat, but really came to like it. Hoping a playable demo comes out to give it try, would really make me decide to buy it or not.

    I spent a few hours a few weeks ago reading up on the game andI couldn't have said it better myself, setting and concept both seem really fresh and interesting but there is nothing that really makes it a WoW-I-really-want-to-try-this-game-out! Aka, the WoW-factor is missing at the moment. Surroundings and character design seem quite bland from the artwork and ingame vids, and yeah I'm assuming this will get polished. Hopefully they will release some other gamedefining mechanic in the future.

    I know they are trying to create a story driven MMO, but I don't really think it's going to work.

    SinglePlayer RPGs = StoryDriven

    MMOs = Grinding, Raiding, Mash through quest text and story asap to level faster.

    Sorry if I seem narrowminded, but I think most people who want a good RPG experience would rather pick up something like ME, DA, BG, NWN, KOTOR or The Witcher

So each "cell" acts like a skill tree. So can someone explain how this isn't just like having levels? I'm all for doing something new but this isn't new. It is just leveling without the number next to your character.
    It's not like levelling because it doesn't automatically increase your characters stats/resistance/hit-miss-etc chances, like in WoW where a level 10 character can't touch a level 30 character at all.
    With a skill system instead of levelling, a guy with 10 skillpoints can even kill someone with 50 skillpoints even though the 50 skillpoint guy has a pretty huge advantage.

    To get stuff? Currency, gear, lore and other stuff. And for FUN?

    Why?
    There's many MMO's without classes and classes really doesn't add that much to the game except forcing people to re-play through the game to try another class.

    Every Mmo ever released was a half finished pile of crap Even WoW.
    Sure if you were to look at AoC today it is in one hell of a lot better condition than it was during it's initial release

    When Wow was first released
    #1 there was no end game content
    #2 servers crashed several times daily
    #3 recently acquired items were lost when servers crashed (any item acquired within 15 minutes of the crash)
    #4 patches took 5+ hours to download regardless of connection speed
    #5 Patch day always meant extended maintenance followed by 2 days of constant server resets.

    It looked very interesting untill I saw the ingame footage.

    The combat system doesn't look "mmorpg-like" to me and looks weird to me.
    However. this is just my first impression so maybe when I saw this later on it will look better to me.

    Oh, and I'm probably one of the few who think this but I'm no fan of spoken quest dialog.
    Skipping it sounds wrong and listening to all it useally takes too long.
    I, personally, am a big fan of the written text as in wow.

    If I've already done the q on a different char I can skip it and If I didn't I can read it in the time I need for it.
    I probably read faster then spoken text so it's quicker to read (for me).
    Also voice acting is sometimes just soooo bad it can ruin a great atmosphere.

    Still, it could be an intersting game.

    O rly? I hadn't heard that.

    Here's hoping it won't be pay-to-win.

    I love the ideas that they have with this game. Funcom has good ideas in all of their games, implementation can sometimes be the issue with them though. Still, I'm greatly interested in this one. Only thing I'm kind of iffy on are the character models. AoC had great character models, probably the best around, so I'm kind of surprised that the ones here aren't as good.
