I have been a silent fan of this new MMO, Chronicles of Spellborn. For months I have popped in and out of the forums and main website reading and watching videos. Every week I grew more and more excited until recently when I found out that Acclaim received the American Distribution rights to the game. I DO NOT like the fact that it is not going to be a straight forward p2p game. With Acclaim you have to go through the hassle of purchasing a membership, but it doesn't stop there. After you have a monthly membership with Acclaim you then have to purchase coins to be used to play the Acclaim games. It is in my veiw an unneeded hassle! On top of that if you do your math it will cost you alot more than a set monthly fee. I am greatly disappointed in this move to let Acclaim distribute the game. I am going to step in to the open beta later today and at least find out if the game lives up to the hype, but unfortunately when it comes to dealing with Acclaim and their crazy fees I don't think i will find myself playing this game beyond the beta unless something changes.
