OP  1/21/12 9:24:37 AM#1

We've spent some time with Frogster's Eligium: The Chosen One in its closed beta phase.  Does this Action-MMO import have what it takes to capture your attention? Read on to find out.

I try not to judge games in their Closed Beta phase too harshly, I really do.  But Eligium: The Chosen One just isn't really my bag.  That's not to say it's "bad", so much as it is to say it's not for me.  From Shanda Games and Goldcool and published by Frogster, I was expecting something as polished and refined (though derivitive) as Runes of Magic.  What I got instead as an Action-MMO that's still badly in need of some translation work to make its grindy nature worth enduring.  It's on par with many other F2P imports, and in some cases it surpasses others, but I guess I've come to expect more from Frogster of late.

Read the rest of our Eligium: Closed Beta Preview.

Judging from the last picture, I'm not expecting much.

The game was just too lazy for me. I could auto-walk to my target, attack a mob, alt-tab and browse the web. Come back in a min or so to see if the mob was dead. Rinse and Repeat.

I was hoping for a game that was at least on par with RoM but this game is something much less.

Another reason that Chinese shouldn't make MMORPG's. IMO

I only played the game for 30 minutes. I was especially shocked about the combat system.


You click on the mob for an auto-attack, then press the hotkey to use your skill which will cancel the auto-attack. So you click the mob again - meanwhile your skill is ready again and you start over once more.


The game reminded me a lot of Ran Online and this fantasy version of Ran which was taken offline about 8 years ago. Except for.. Ran and that other game (really can't remember the name) were more fun than this.

 Oh, so it isn't really an action-MMO then? Just a normal MMO with misleading genre naming.

I don't understand why the Asian game makers ever thought adding in game mechanics to automatically route players to their quests.  Maybe it began as something put in for the purpose of allowing gamers to step away from the games for a quick sec to give them breaks, IDK.


It would drive me crazy with all those grammatical errors in the English translationl

The game's graphics seemed really grainy, and the game's combat mechanics seemed sticky for the most part. Yes, the translation errors were bad, but for CB I well expected it...even in OB will probably be quite the few.


I don't have much a problem with auto-route as is saves mouse clicking or carpal tunnel issuse from holding W down.


I don't think this game offers much...easily passible for other games that will come out this year or you can just stick with whatever you are playing now.

This game is terrible.  I was really hoping for something at least on the level of Runes of Magic even if I didn't enjoy it.  However, this game is terribly subpar.  I couldn't even force myself to play it.

Well, GW2 blends an auto-attack with action battle elements (the first skill on your bar can be right clicked to recast automatically when it cools down) but then GW2 isn't claiming to be an action MMO. On the other hand, TERA ~is~ claiming to be an action mmo, and does something similar. In the end, I think it boils down to implementation, and it seems that's where Eligium is falling flat.


 


Also, get a better graphics card Will, the game is much prettier than that ;x

I went on a f2p playing spree this past weekend, and while I didn't find Eligium to be a bad game, I found all of the same features in other f2p games and done better.    For anyone keeping score, Eligium is the westernization of Magic World Online 2, a game released in Asia in 2009 (Pandas and all).   I only reached level 38 before the closed beta ended but I found parts of the game to be really fun.  The only problem is that other games have a lot of the exact same features but better presented and more polished.

" So if you're looking for a Wild West game that's reminiscent at times of Lineage, you could do worse."


 


Really? Could you really do worse? I don't think so. This game is spectacularly bad in nearly every regard.

It is Frogster, it will cost a fortune to be competitive in both pve and pvp.

Worst beta I've participated in since Alganon. This game has no reason to exist, and certainly there is no reason why Frogster would waste their time and money publishing it in the west.
