I hope the Koreans enjoy the game I paid $200 to beta test for them.

I'm quite sick of having choices of "Bud Light" or "Busch Light".  That's like choosing between my own piss and someone elses piss.  -Dashy

"It's now very common to hear people say 'I'm rather offended by that.'  As if that gives them certain rights; it's actually nothing more...it's simply a whine.  It's no more than a whine.  'I find that offensive,' it has no meaning, it has no purpose, it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that,' well so fucking what?"   -Stephen Fry

To add insult to injury for those who subbed (or, especially, took the Founder's offer): everyone who never even bothered to sub is now getting full access to all that content, too.


Aim low. Less chance of disappointment. More chance of a nutshot.

If you don't have idiot friends, it's possible you are the idiot friend.

Yeah...that is a pisser.

Honestly it is a pity that this game never met its goals.  It was actually a very enjoyable game that I played for about six months straight.  While I've played other more polished games since then I have to say that I enjoy this one a lot.

With "ifs" you can change the world, but the most annoying part in my opinion is that if the game had been released in the state it was 3 months after its actual release, that is to say with most bugs fixed, I'm pretty sure that it could have worked well.

Here, I'm pulling figures out of my arse, but I'd bet they lost more than half their potential target by releasing a product which shoud have been called an early beta.

That said, the business model seemed a bit weak too : paying for a hack and slash when all others are free is weird, but to come back to my first point, if the team had not spend the first months fixing bugs, they would have been able to work on more content which might have justified the suscribtions.

Will private servers spring up to host the online play after the cut-off date or is everyone that bought this game doomed to play single player forever?

It will probably be SP forever unless you are Korean.  SP is enjoyable, but only until you get to about lvl 35.  It starts getting super hard then.  Plus, there is no way to mule or TCP/IP, so it basically sucks.
