Don't be impatient, I got invited recently myself even though I registered a Beta acc at the very day it became available. Also dont expect to be invited sometimes round next month, the will hand out invites when they reach their major mileston which is basically a full revamp of most of the game... though thumping and maps stay somewhat same :D
Aniway bear wth em, it does worth it, or will worth it....
I played the BETA(demo) and knew I didn't like it, hell even from video footage I felt subconsciously that something is wrong with it... I finished the beta with 1 character and thats it never touched it again, im not even feeling like trying out the pirated versions I just cant enjoy what blizz has made this time. Similar games would be Torchlight 2, which I also BETA tested, and it was much better, though I was severely disappointed when they stated that was one third of the game, so I might ditch buying that. Im now planning to buy Krater which is extremely fun and I play it a lot, just have to wait for some glaring problems being fixed, since its riddiculously annoying to play it right now but I still enjoy, it regardless these annoying issues.
Guess that "Work" Arguement didn't quite pan out...

Having "Normal" level of stress during EARLY ACCESS?? Thats riddiculous. Most players cant even play yet. There will be dead servers soon if its like this this early. And then players who will only buy or order their game after launch isnt even there. Going to be pretty darn messy if you ask me.

Thats not DN EU thats DN SEA you know philippines and such, thats why EU players get screwed in the arse all the time, becouse NA got IP block for EU so we have to play on SEA which has twice the latency if not more. Have you seen mobs teleporting? I did, and got my ass handed to me. Nexxons is failing again... friggin hard...

Elin's for me, that is if they dont change them models, else I use the next few months till beta/release to learn how to hack their systems and destroy them completely.
My reason is: If I have to watch a character for hours I want it to be a cute little.... umm... wait... that sounds way too pedo...
As for the castanics :D well it was obvious since the beginning :D Their clothes are way too smexy to chose something else. Especially their females.
Well I be, the kid with healing and animal ears :D I love playing healers. Good old days in ragnarok online. Im yet to find a guild since I left that game...
This is obviously a stupid idea, other then the already mentioned problems of stalkers and stuff, what would stop me from bashing your face in just cuz you won against me in PVP?
What would stop me and my ENTIRE GUILD to beat you half to death rape your kids, and wife just for teh lulz?
See, there are people out there that do this in RL already, providing them with an another plane to hunt for people whom they can easily do these is plain stupid.
Also what would you do with underage players? If I can see some kids info and shit, what would stop me from ninjaing said kid and do whatever hell am I please to do with em?
Anonymity is a MUCH needed thing for the interwebz. The moment you have to log in using ur personal data, will be teh moment when the interwebz will die.
Also why are you so offended with kids talking crap? They do in RL as well!, Hell even if you bash their face in they will still talk trash! So yer problem? Its the same crap like with violent video games shit.
Only ignorant shitheads believe that its the games, and internet that is to blame for this generation or degeneration chose whichever suits you best. its IGNORANCE!!! And a generation of "parents" who should have been SHOT for stupidity before letting them mate and reproduce.
Just go out and see for yourself, watch the news, like how some dipshit whore let their 6 month old kid in a bathtub while reading FaceBook. Of course the kid died in the process. You can say its FaceBook thats evil, sucking in people and shit. But its obvious that this bitch wouldve ditched the kid for TV, Joga, Phone, Gawking at the guy next door and masturbating at the thought of cheating on her husband/boyfriend, or simply cuz she forgot that she has a kid. HELL I bet she wouldve ditched the kid just so she could watch the wall and be all engulfed in "emotions" like "Woooo WALLL, sooo prettyyy". And theres and entire generation of these kind of people. They distort our society. And they have the same rights as any other SANE person. These kind of people have the humane right to LIVE!! Hell they can even vote. Hows that justice?

Make a system that generates terrain like automatically, make a system that generates the kewl kill 10 rats quest and the like(like in anarchy online) make a system that generates cities and NPCs in those cities, who can give these quests.
- at least a whole gigabit speed network acces, and the accompanying infrastructure of switches and routers, multiple network cards plugged into amachine
- throw as much FAST DDRIII ram into the machine as much as you can!
- multiple SSD drivers or FAST HDD's in a good raid system
- throw in a craphics card to calculate hitboxes or multiple graphics cards
- a core i7 4 cores/8threads CPU just to be sure
- Make a server software which uses said resources.
- Make the game send only the data which has to be sent, like keepalivepackets, movement vectors, skillvectors(yes jumping is a skill :P)
- NEVER CALCULATE DAMAGE OR HITBOXES ON THE USERS PC!!!!
- Never Calculate hits or damage on the users PC!!!
- the above one!
- Do some graphics, so ur automatic systems can work with something.
My answer in general? Yes it can be done by one person. BAsically, Notch and minecraft got the basics laid down, if you only track terrain in heightmap form(and the occasional dungeon in a cave) and the blocks cant be moved, a basic server software can track hundreds of players even on a fairl cheap comp, having mobs come out at night is done by the system anyway, removing the hitboxes from playerside, and optimizing network in general, add some quest in the fomr of quest generators, or anything like it,and you have urself an mmorpg, and making it from minecraft wouldn't be to hard either.
Does anyone want to suck away with that? I cant say. IfI were to get a stable job I wouldtrymaking one myself, till then it comes down to my occasional brainstorming with a cup of Coke in m hand.

An extremely poor example I think. Software development, particularly with games, is nothing like writing a novel. Frankenstein did not take a team of people 4 years and thousands or even millions of pounds to create. Nor did it require the meticulous planning and organisation needed by dev teams to avoid endless delays, unbalanced gameplay and overblowing the budget. It also did not need the technical expertise required to succeed in software development. A typo in a novel will not stop the reader enjoying the story. A single typo in one line of code can cause a game to crash.
If you want a better example, think of film development. Directors will start out small with short films and low budget indie films, then work their way up. Peter Jackson didn't just finish college, buy some camera equipment with his dad's money and start shooting the Lord of the Rings trilogy, relying on Tolkien fans to send donations when he ran into trouble. He started off small and gained experience so that when he was approached to make the Lord of the Rings trilogy, he had almost 20 years of experience behind him and he was able to plan everything so that he stayed as close to his budget and time frame as possible.
Similarly, If SV had started out small, developing a tighter, simpler game they could have learned a lot about game development, maybe earned some revenue and would have been in a much better shape for trying something as incredibly ambitious as MO. As it is, they bit off far more than they could chew and it looks like they're going to suffer for it.
They do not miss knowledge realated to game development, they miss things related to software engineering in general. I plan to make my own game I want it to be an MMO yes, cuz hundreds thousands of players are nice to have especially if they pay 15$ to do so a month, however, I know for a fact that I cant pull it off, I know that I could do it if I had talented graphics people, and talented sounds people, and at least someone who can write good stories yes, I do not have those, nor the money for a decent server, that I can optimize my server for.
I can make a graphics engine i wrote over 15 of these all of them at different levels of complexity, and I am competent at game server programming and the associate network programming and optimization I doesent even remember how many runs, tests and debugging I did with these until I got what I wanted. I spent 5 years now studying programming, since I came out of high school I never attended any college or university. I was aware long before 18 that those facilities cannot make a programmer. I decided to be a game programmer at 12, after playing with duke nukem and red alert.
Programming in itself is an art form, just like you cant teach everyone how to make good looking 3d characters you cant teach people how to write software. I had family in the software industry, when with my little 12 year old self I said to them: "can you teach me how to make games" they replied with a laugh and told me thats something you cannot teach, you have to feel it to your bones, for that you have to study your ass off.
The fun part, they will get away with it somehow.
To the OP, this game has no chance to survive, its developers not simply beginners at what they do, THEY DO NOT CARE. I never heard indie developers who make games spending their own money, to go home at the weekends ESPECIALLY if their game doesent work, and PEOPLE PLAY IT. Hell I never heard the so hated and laughed at F2P games developers to do this.
They sleep like babies,they make new features on the broken game. Its like you get huge hole fill it with quicksand you call that a foundation then you make a castle, with bad architecture, THEN you make more and more towers on that castle. The result will be less than imposing it will be laughable pieve of crap. Starvault did the same, just that there was some people who bought some rooms inside this miser of a castle they can continue to add more towers.
My personal opinion they should have gone out of business when they had the BLOCK A tests. it was apparent that they have no intention to make this game into a game at all. The blind fanboyism supports this poor slob of a game's uncaring developers. Even though it craves for the bullet to the head.
Allods Online: Item Mall Opened, Prices Stir Uproar

2/20/10 4:47:31 PM
EDIT: BEWARE WALL OF TEXT AHEAD!!
Btw, you do realize they said that in the next few weeks they "revise" the prices rigth?? Do you really believe that?? I hope not. In the next few weeks while they "revise" they will evaluate how many suckers pay for the crap in the item shop. Hell I wont be bothering to check it either, waste of time. I wait for AIKA take nuff screens of my pran as much I can, remodell her in 3dsmax and make a game based on them, hell!! I make em be able to fly ships for funs sake.... Im off of MMOG's for a while, whats going in this industry is even more hilarious than the single player games part, where you get a brand new copy-paste of games, for way more than what they worth...
Allods in particular... The moment they implemented Fear of Death(a debuff if you die after lvl 15, takes away 25% of all your stats, last for 40 mins if Im rigth, and stacks four times... Its just friggen annoying...) I knew its the end. Now throw in the so called flagging system(makes players who doesent want to be ganked, impossible to atk in contested areas) which can be BYPASSED by a semi rare item WAR FLAG which makes the BEARER AND HIS PARTY be able to kill UNFLAGGED people.(notice those who got ganked AGAINST their will, WILL get FOD if they do not have perfume on). You can only get 1 perfume a day, from a 30 min long quest. Throw in all of that I told you before, and you will see, that after lvl 23(when you enter contested areas) you get the FOD after 30 mins of gameplay, regardless of your skill at PVE(if you die by mobs you get FOD as well) just becouse someone found a WAR FLAG got himself a ganking party and goes on a spree of blood, NOTICE most people claimed they found a WAR BANNER almost every 40-60 minutes. Not only that but contested area has the most aggro mobs, with insane aggro ranges, people die more often than not.
NOW tell me? does PERFUME is an optional item?? I doubt... its something that shouldn't be a CS item in the first place. Its like you do not allow people to buy HP pots from regular vendors, only from the cash shop, and then you put in all kinds of mechanics to rape anyone who desent have said pots. And then we didnt even talk about the insane ammounts of "PERKS" you get from the perfume.
In a nutshell Gpotato showed us, that GREED is something that they have a lot of, and they showed that COMMON SENSE is something they lack even more. And of course I learned something even more valuable. Its time to go back to the oldies when people made their own games to play with, since those who make todays games, publish todays games, market todays games. Lost their touch with the balance between player-business, that was there more or less in the past few years.
ps: One positive side to this, I can see a forum ablaze the first time in my life, to this extent. Its kind of an interesting thing you see. Seeing more or less serious Beta testers Burning with Rage and abandoning the game they helped polish for months... It just a small miracle I have never hoped to see... PEOPLE HAVE SOME BRAINS!! (O.o) I thougth most of the populace will just suck it up, like its always done, but nope... they resist with all their migth... really refreshing.

I'm sorry, I've seen 1 bot video, which was on the Korean or Chinese version. I have yet to see anyone botting in the NA/EU beta. Besides, it's not like its something new considering thats what most asians prefer to do, is bot. They don't like questing and would rather grind away levels by sitting in one spot and having a program level their toons for them.
Still not sure how NCSoft betrayed you since people who write bot programs are the ones at fault. Guess everyone may as well stick with WoW then since it's bug free, cheat free, hack free, bot free, exploit free and suitably designed for a 12 year old.
I was betrayed becouse:
- NcSoft stated their zero policy crap just like they done so for L1, L2, and they fail at it miserably.
- Their "idea" of using Game Guard was the most foolish, and most infuriating ever done by professional game developers.
- !!!!The LUNCHER STARTS GG AND NOT THE GAME!!!! Bypassing this "protection" takes 5 minutes.
- The game does NOT check if gameguard was ever lunched at all, nor does it check GG's results.
- There are HUNDREDS of botting videos on youtube, just type "AION Bot" into the search bar and you will be amazed at 50-100 bots running into a hole, or ramming into walls constantly.
- Assholes who make bots are really the greatest mofos's a proper mmo gamer will see, maybe only peeps that USE these are the only things I hate more. Neverthless NcSoft does not do crap about fixing their GG issues for the past year. Even tho it was obvious even in the Korean CB...
- Yet they dare to say, that the NA / EU version will be different. Yet they doesent show 20+ content areas where you cant get away from bots with "change channel button" since its disabled, they wont let you inevitably watching hundreds of bots zerging lvling areas.
WoW is a piece of shit, boring pack of crap with crappy, and annoying graphics, its full of bugs, and exploits, there are tonns of botters even though you doesent know if they are, cuz apparently you fail to understand that a pack of 20 or more gladiators in the same clothes killing mobs 7 lvls below them, may, just MAYBE bots.
Also bot users do not lvl their chars with bots, asians, and many other peeps around the world use bots to get gold, then sell it to mommy's kid who is too stupid to get his hands on money in any game, so he buys the items and gold, thus creating a need for gold. if that need wouldn't be there then there wouldnt be such an excessive ammounts of goldfarmers. btw farmed gold is the reason why legit players cant possibly compete in crazed economy. you just dont have the required 10billion for a new weapon you see. BTW mommy's kids, are usually british or americans, who can actually afford buying crap, on top of paying the monthly fee.
Just for your enligthment...
Neither of your possible answers.
AION FOCUSES ON BOTTING.
In reality Aion is a programming challenge, as to who cane make an AI that can get the most bonues of 24/7/4 gameplay, and Who can write an AI which can do everything that usually done by players.
It is a game designed for programmers to face off in a " WHOSE AI IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE" type of showdown, thus making for a good test of wits. These programmers, at the end of the, inevitable short lifespan of this game, will be selected to develop SKYNET.
This should sum it up perfectly.
Yes, I am a disappointed person who feels betrayed by NCsoft again. No need to recite, but please feel free to do so if you feel like it.

But this looks fun, original, and a pretty neat gameplay dynamic. This might just be the thing to turn me into playing WoW, thanks for the post.
Since you wanted it, just cuz Im sick now, and my ear hurts like hell, and becouse You have been asking for it:
- This idea is stolen as well, you dont have to look too far to find it, its an mmorpg in the making for years with this concept as its base, recently they officially announced their game and its features, of course blizzard and its zerg team could easily steal the idea of course.
- Said game is free to play, "we" others wont even need to buy X ammount of brand new games with the same title, to play with this kind of gameplay as its the base of this said game.
- Said game is still in the making Blizzard just blindly snatched the idea, and the ballance issues will show, and I will be laffin my ears off.
....The bait was tasty....

Anyway I hope you all have fun and I'll see you back in whatever game you came from in a month or so.
The last link owns :D I spent 1 hour watching them plumetting into the ground down below, it was funny :D And sad at the same time. Btw, that spot is just good, some more spots designed like this should be made, like all respawn points having certain death around them :D That would be awesome :D
As for a more serious note, that area is still good, if there are too much bots around, you just use "change channel" and get away from them, but in Eltnen and later its impossible, cuz the "change channel" option will be turned off. So there will be you watching how YOUR mobs get ganked by 50, same looking, randomly named bots... ANd at the same time you gonna shout "GIEVE MY FRICKING MONEH BACK!!!"

I played the chinese version, and found out, that NcSoft is utterly incapable of defending the game, thus I stopped playing. There is this little fact, that with a custom luncher, for which NcSoft themselves provided information in tech support forums, you can essentially bypass GameGuard fully. Which is dumb, since even free-to-play games tend to check at least once, while running the game, if the GG actually were lunched at least once. Im not talking about "state of the art" tech like essentially checking in some intervals if the gg is running, or actually communicating with it and such. But essentially a player cant bot-hack-abuse the game only if they dont want to do so, or too lazy to do so.
There are many ppl saying that this will be different for EU/US but I doubt, my proof is that they dont let players test 20+ content in these prewiew events they are holding.
If you ever played the game, you would know that past 20+ territories in Eltnen for Elyos, and the similar part of the map for Asmo's is "non channel change territories". What is this means? You cant possibly get away from bots. I remember it vividly as lvl 27+ bots were in groups of 10-20 or even more were killing stuff in quest area(lvl 20+). I know how it was impossible to kill anything that was meant for me to kill. Then I joined a clan, and tried to kill named, and elite mobs, for a different quest chain, and saw my demise.
For starters there wasn't enough of us. And the others could not play their characters, thus proving to be botters. And im talking about my healer getting his ass handed to him becouse some warrior didnt know how to use aggro skills yet demanding constant healing. Or a mage attacking with lvl 1 skills and such. it was hilarious and a totally frigthening experience. since I DID wait quite a bit for this game. Also ever since I found out these things NCSoft still fails to realize this, they didn't even patch this issue even once. And here they come releasing the game for us westerners in a state that not even free to play companies would dare to do so. And I bet they dont even know that there are already fairly advanced private servers for their newest game. And I bet they will cry a lot just like they did withwith L2.
Other than tech/playabilty problems: Crafting IS riddiculous. Especially, since botters dominate it as well. L2 material bot anyone? They are here in AION as well. I mean it is horrible that with 12+ hours of gaming I cant be one of the top crafters, just becouse the guy next to me is onlyine 24/7/4 with 5 chars, 1 crafting the rest filling the craft bot with materials.
There are many quests which got a really bad translation, and is hard to do, since the original hints arent got translated properly. I remember searching for a box, as large as my shoes for 5 hours. When some guy heard my cries and told me where it is. He also told me that in the korean text its failry easy to find it, since the surrounding environment is told of in small culture specific hints. I doubt that western cultures doesent have similar ways of hints than that of korean. Maybe someone intended to cut the job off or something.
