Wasted $40 : Don't bother with this game

Totally agreed. With what we have to choose from, Age of Wushu is a much more fun and rewarding game that has many sandbox elements which are fun, fresh and engaging. Even though snailgames is horribad and alot of the cash shop stuff is total crap.
If your going to spend money I would go with AoW hands down,
How anyone new to DF could consider what they call a game "fun" in any way blows my mind. It goes like this...wack a tree, wack a rock, watch a cast bar....get stronger for pvp! Makes sense right? Oh and all this wacking and watching time elapse doesnt look cool or varied at all. Its the same stiff animation OVER and OVER. Then you finally get strong enough to do pvp and its so underwhelming I'd rather watch paint dry.
This is all considering you can even play the game without suffering the technical issues which are extraordinarily abundant.
All for 40$ and a recurring 15$ monthly fee which takes a good deal of navigating to cancel.
This is one of the reasons why I love this game. The BEST movement ever in an MMORPG

Ive been playing MMO's for a long time and no themepark has ever swept me up like this game. Like many people have said...at first ithe combat can seem kind of clunky. If you are looking for that instant gratification mindless button mash spam that has been long over used then AOW wont give it to you.
This is a game that you have to put a good deal more effort into than your average MMO to feel rewarded. But in my experience it truly pays off and has kept me comin back like a twitching crack fiend needing a fix. The combat has a depth that ive never experienced before. While it uses tab targeting and some other mechanics that is par for the course in any mmo, it truly shines with its parry,feint, attack system coupled with the flying abilities.
I currently have nearly maxed all my school styles and one jianhgu style (mantis) and now Im trying to master the finer nuances of them all. At this point I pretty much have an answer for any given type of opponent and situation. Doesnt mean I will win but it means I will have a gameplan. The diversity of styles is bad ass.
Those who dont like the combat really havent progressed their character enough to really see the beauty of it. Ive had some of the most fun in my recent gaming years with the guild wars and script steals. You never know what can happen and fortunes can change over night. Just today i was able to purchase a blacksmith workshop for 350L and turn around and sell it for almost 9D. Thats about a 3000% profit margin!! Just when I was worrying about money because I wanted to buy some new abilities BAM i find that gem.
Thats how it goes in AOW. This game rewards patience and smarts.
Not really that good? LOL. Hes the heavyweight champion of the largest MMA promotion in the world.
He beat the piss out of Dos Santos, who I am a big fan of for 5 rounds straight. I mean total domination.
When you say not good, what are you comparing him to.....a nuclear weapon?
I got started doing shaolin 5 animals kung fu and recieved a brown sash. From there I got into MMA and eventually became a pro fighter so i can attest to the effectiveness of MMA for a modern combat sport. The kung fu in this game and mostly that is still practiced today was from a different time and had different purposes.
I personally have seen it work effectively in a street fight but the only problem is most of the McDojo instructors arent real fighters and have never used their techniques outside out point sparring (freeze tag) or doing forms. There are exceptions however.
You will never EVER learn how to fight another human no matter which techniques you practice by doing a form in fixed movements if that is all you do.
Now back to the game...I love the kung fu in it and the motion capture animations of alot of the moves. Really cool game and era.
Extremely dissapointed with Beta Test gift event

I posted this on the official forums as well. Who knows if it will get deleted. So I show up to the gift ambassador and click on him AT 2030. Nothing happens. I click a few more times. Nothing. Then it says there are no more gifts. LOL are you fking kidding me?
So you need to collect 5000 or more of them in the next week to be eligible for some new scripts. Cool right? Wrong. The gifts can be sold which means only the absolute richest people ( gold buyers) are gonna have those scripts.
This was a painful reminder of the moneygrabbing pay2win model here. I really like this game which is why im taking the effort to make these posts because i never do this. Consequently this is just total BS and I cant believe they would use a "gift" event" as a way to suck money out of the playerbase. Im not going to drop cash on this game over 10$ or so a month just to stay competitive.
Im american gdamit and this blatant rip off just doesnt sit right with me. Take that crap back to asia.

Im getting this error from the launcher and am unable to play the game. I have checked soe support and apparently this is a known issue. I have tried all the reccomended things they listed and still same error.
Also checked backlog of 5 pages on this site before I posted this to see if I could find anyone with a similar issue. Does anyone have a fix?
