I am amazed. So many positive comments! I had to scroll down quite a ways to see anything remotely negative.

I really hope this game has a lot things that are sand box such as resource control, points of interests, and seiging areas... but also balance that it is done with small groups or even solo to make a contribution.
Thats the problem they might face if its too depedent on mobs making a difference, which means the solo player has little content to do other than grouping with others. I know this is a sand box feature, but it should offer things that make us feel the danger of a sand box MMO but also be able to contribute a lot on our own, towards end game content.
Also I hope they have content that considers goals for players and its shapes the world. Many games try to incorportate this, and its a nice way to make the game have a goal other than constant war.
And I hope there is A.I. programmed with NPCs. I think this is key, and also makes content for solo play a lot more doable for defense or just content as in open world raids, and 'world events' of roaming NPCs possibly tipping the scale of war. And something like this adds to the game a lot when the NPCs have thier own story or actions which affect the world also affecting the goals of the players. ANd also how players affecting areas affects NPC's as well to be relocated for example.
Also I hope they put things like mini games even in a sand box game, becuase they are social ways to pass the time. And since this game is mature rated game, there should be gambling and player bounties. This should be a given. Mini games with gambling, would be some of the nice mini game options among others options.
And, if its not going for a mature rating, then they should. I think that is the niche they need to make this game more appealing to a larger audience.
