But hey, world pvp is only about killing lowbies...

    Pvp gear is only obtainbale by arena rating. Seriously, there is not mmo a single mmorpg balanced and they think they will achieve it, but they will fail at balance . So people joining them will see the unbalance of the pvp and will just quit.
    Well, it's just foolish to ever have concern for balance in an asymmetrical PVP system. No video game with asymmetrical PVP is balanced.

    It wouldn't make sense otherwise.

    Just kind of a nonsensical post.

    They do (at least for me too). And that's spectacular, because I think Torchlight looks great : )

    This game reminds me of Jak and Daxter. That's a good thing for me because that is one of my favorite game series of all time. I am really excited to try it, I hope they have good pvp.

    Saw twitter y-day with some new information and noone posted so it seems to be up to me...

    1st.
    Why are they focusing on the "1%" (elder game aka endgame)? (I really love their philosophy behind this, but not all will agree ofc)

    2nd
    And then a "Blind Quest" with Mattvisual which shows us a lot about the game if you're a new follower!

    Nope. Last I heard was "soon." Soonest the EU invites will go out will probably be mid to late May. Since that is five weeks since Closed Beta began and Carbine has said they plan to have new builds pushed about every five weeks.

    I think it has the same art director (It's what I've heard, anyway). So that might be part of it.

    well i like the way he has written the article. in fact, the 'honest' vibe i'm getting from reading the stuff on the website and watching vids with that gaffney dude are a marked difference from when me and my mates were getting ready for swtor.

    heres hoping this isnt another mmo thats all hype and then just gets fucked by terrible management as i'm really looking forward to it.

    I don't think its this weekend.

    We're still determining which upcoming weekend will be best for the Stress Test, but we will make sure those who get invites get them a few days in advance. Why waste time patching when you could be helping us break things?

    By the looks of what they are saying they aren't really focusing on the 1%, they are just ensuring that they have an incredibly fleshed out endgame that has some serious challenges on both the PvP and PvE sides. I like the fact that they realise the "65%" as they call it will also have a proper, serious endgame which sounds much more interesting that what most MMOs provide which is usually "farm the same dungeons for more tokens for 18months" and "spam those dailies!".

    Only thing I worry about is they seem to be promising the world and the moon at release, if they can't keep pumping out content at the same quality and quantity continuously afterwards they will just lose all those players that spearhead a game.

    Yeah I know what you mean, what I ment is that they're putting a lot more focus on the "1%" than most MMO's out there, the story is not that fleshed out during leveling but it starts to really get deep when you're at endgame (elder game) and such.
    And indeed the focus on "solo pve'er" content as elder game is pure awesomenezz! Never any more dailies like other huge games.

    Well, about quality/quantity idk... I think they can do it, Rift and WoW can. But however, I'm a mostly pure PvPer (although I'd like to try 40man raid! ) so arena/warplot will stay "up to date" for me
    Also the "dynamic" raid will make the raids last for longer I think

    Really looking forward to this game. Hopefully it will be everything i want it to be, and more...
    Cant wait for the release of the two new classes - crossing fingers for a Melee physical DPS+Healer combination.

    A quick question regarding their server layout:
    Will it be like this(?): A handfull of servers that work together, as in you can raid, group, guild up, pvp, etc - cross realm betwen those, lets say five realms . (They make one super server of sorts. You can Zone in to any of the servers in ur superserver, but ur character belongs to one MAIN server). And there will be (Depending on subs) around 5-10 "super servers"?
    Read the blog on how they were going to do their servers and this is what i came up with, does it sound about right?
    AkA Companiet !
