im on lvl 40 right now, and the game is starting to get less and less appealing. I always enjoyed more pve than pvp, and in this game pve is really lackluster. I just got my first quest that I know ima need a group to accomplish, so maybe this will turn things around if there are more quests like this.

I'm hoping down the line, they add instances/raids, that would truly make the game worth playing.

The main aspect of the game seems 2 be pvp, and from what I heard its been nerfed a lot because of the latest patch that added guards everywhere. So hopefully that will be fixed, so lower lvl people have something to do besides questing.

Also the EVENTS in the game are something to take away from standard grinding/questing. Although it seems you need to be a high lvl to participate in most of them. I've only been able to do 1 Event, which was a Q and A event.

New guards were added because up until then any high player would enter the other faction's areas and wipe out the entire map; right now the only "pvp-ers" that complain about the guards are the ones that used to grief low lvl players (picture this: you're a lvl 35 player and you're bumping into a lvl 100+ enemy - the allowed level difference gap in 90 - do you think you'd stand any chance?). And remember: in Zu you may drop your gear when you die, so getting killed 20 times in a row and losing most of your equipment in the process just because some idiots think it's funny to stop you from leveling while they farm the hell our of you for faction points might ruin your day and certainly your gaming experience. There are still some things that need fine tuning, but again, the game is still in early OB.

This game have 300 lvls, people who does not even hit 50 have no right to make a review of the game (even though u r entitled to your opinions)  It only takes a few hours to get to 50, and its mostly questing and not hack and slash mobs. Even at my current lv I cannot say I know absolutely everything about this game.

If you say its boring at lv 3, you have basically just got out of first town (takes about 5 minutes if you read the quest dialogue, and longer if you didn't bother reading any)  because the first quest gets you lv 2 automatically and any following quest will lvl you to lv 3. (If you even bothered doing it at all, you should know it takes about few minuts to complete). So, you have spent about 5-15 minutes in the game, pretty sure u cannot write an review about it.  HOWEVER, you ARE allowed to say its boring since its YOUR opinion at lv 3.

If you say its boring at lv 10, you are still in the beggining part of noob training area.  If you stopped at this point all you are allowed to write a review on is the graphics and less than 1/10th of the game mechanics. Remember you are protected by the game till lv 30 from PK and are still protected before you even reach the ACTUAL dangerous maps.

If you stop before lv 30 you cannot do round quests, which give you faction contribution for further skills/upgrades. You also would not know about Talents, since you don't even know enough spells/skills to make any sort of reference. You will be so safe from other faction's PK that you will feel like the game is just hack and slash, but what mmo isn't hack and slash? (at least this game limit it to minimum so u can have quests, guild, events, and other ways to level up your character)

If you stop before lv 40 you would not have a mounted pet, or any extensive knowledge of how the pet system works unless someone tell you.

I could go on and on about every big lv and how much it changes the game, but it would not matter to anyone who only spent less time playing than the time it took to install the game.

Currently I am lv 130+ (no i wasn't even in alpha testing), even though I won't say this is a great game, but I do not believe any game deserve  judgements from 10 minute players.

Even I still do not consider myself being able to write an accurate review of this game since its still in OB, which is something to think about when someone decides to write a "review".

HOWEVER, you are still very much entitled to your opinions as I have said many times.  Just don't call it a review since it is about as accurate as a sniper rifle with a sausage as scope.

Not everyone have played 300+ games, Many played wow as thier first mmorpg and some might play ZU as thire. Wow got a big crowd because it was simple and appealing to a big audiance. Emagin if all these pleople had tryed a game like Lineage2, Eve or fury. Lineage2 have hard time selling to new player because it takes months to get to fun parts, eve is hard to get ahold of and fury is complicated step learning curv. The point is, devs dont want to scare new mmoprg crowd away. Usaly the first game got to be a hit for them to stick around, games being silly easy at beginners level can be justefied by this and it only lasting for a few houers in zu is not so bad imo. Thoe i havent played it thats what i can tell from the posts here.

I think the lotro model was good, you can skip the intro if you concider yourself hardcore and want to face higher level mobs with just beginner wep and lvl 2, or you can follow the tourtail and get some basic understanding of the game.

Joining a guild is a must (choosing a top guild is a very wise decision), because YOU WILL NEED HELP - for some group guests, bosses, and even when training in known pk zones (Miracle, Sky, etc) it's good to have someone to watch your back.

Im lvl 39 summoner currently, im loving this game. The best thing abut this game so far for me is the pace at which you play. Quests are so abundant i dont have to sit around clicking monsters all day until i lvl. Obviously i dont know what its like at the high lvls, but its kept me interested for about 7 hours  so far which is much more than i can say for alot of games ive tried lately (i am a casual gamer). Huzzah for Zu lets just hope they dont screw up!! XD

 

peace, devoux.

Well i've been playing Zu for a while now and starting to become addicted to it haha.

im 100+ but im not playing just to make lvls and be the best.. I love the quiz and adventure events on this game, it makes it more fun when you can get 15 minutes to think about something els instead of making quests and grinding.. and you get experience for it!

There is so much in this game you got to try if you like playing mmorpg games..

you had protected before you are lower 30 level.and have a Area Occupation activity to pk . some information fellow :

a. Capture the Lead Pillar which is the symbol of an area occupation after the event commences.

b. Use the Lead Pillars that have not been captured by others and consume some guild capital.

c. Protect the Lead Pillar and after you hold the possession of the Lead Pillar for 30 minutes, you will have occupied the area successfully. At the same time, the players of your same faction in certain effective area will obtain guild contribution points. If you fail, the time will count again.

d. After the event commences, the guild that has occupied some areas will begin benefiting from the areas occupied and the guild capital will also be increased. The players in the same faction will obtain Exp even sit in the occupied areas.

After all this while (posts indicate this game's been out since last year), you'd think someone would at least have put up a review listing the game's features, instead of yet another tired opinion thread.

I've played many MMOs. When I stumble across something new, all I want to know AT FIRST is: what kind of game is it? I don't want to know you and your dog liked it. I want to know... does it start as a grind? How are the quests, do they really help/give good returns/actually give useful info/enough of them? What are the classes/races like, any level caps, progression milestones (e.g. levels where jobs branch out), how diverse are the builds? How many servers, population, how bad the community is (I've played far too many games to ask "how good the community is"). Does it cater for pvp, is it using the same lame ol' korean global pk model, does it have pvp zones or arenas or scheduled events, what about factions, are there quests related to this? Is the company/developer/publisher actively working on the game, do they listen to feedback, how good are they at handling complaints, do they take care of hackers and gold spammers?

You know? FACTUAL game features. You want to babble about how you loved/hated the game, put that in another paragraph. I want to know about the goddamned game. Btw after reading a couple more threads I've concluded the game was not what I was looking for anyway, even before it all went downhill.

You are not qualified to make a review after just 15 minutes of playing the game - which is how much would take (at most) to get to lvl 10. Like I said, you can reach lvl 30 in 3 - 4 hours. Zu requires more time to spend learning the game than your usual MMO, there are some features that might be confusing at first. That's why the game is so easy & high paced at first. However, the higher the lvl, the more challenging it gets. I don't have to convince you of anything, by all means go and play whatever you like, but don't come in here and say the game sucks, when it's obvious you have no clue whatsoever regarding the game and its mechanics. And on top of that, the game is stil in OB, and a lot of things are changed from one patch to the next.

 

You mean, it takes more time to get addicted to a game with bad performance? I played the game for 16 hours or so, and the combat is indeed as bad as Deicide Online.

I could kite with my summon, on my summoner. Having insane buffs, insane dmg and defense for a casting class.

16 hours and lvl 56, if thats the idea of getting addicted its not my style. If a game can't keep my attention its Game over. I mean, what are games for? Entertaining, or what? tell me? Not to bite the dust first.

Discovering the game content and mechanics have nothing to do with the addiction level. You can review a game even if you didn't like it, but you can't review a game if you have no idea what you're talking about or what the game can really offer. And saying "this game sucks" doesn't qualify as a review.

No offense to you, but dont come on here and tell others  here who has the right to review a game.

if someone logged on and couldnt make it past character creation withought wanting to delete it, this is a good place to come let people know.

im sorry your a fanboi so you wont understand but its people who you say dont have the right to review a game who keep people like me from wanting to play a game that i will end up deleting in a week.  Thanks for the reviews guys.

p.s. if your going to act like you own this forum at least get your post count up past 1, you know actually participate in this forum.

 

oh and to the other fanbois here....THIS GAME SUCKS...i didnt even have to download and play it to know this...its why those critical reviews are so handy

Indeed, constructive and meaningful, lol! So your comment is much better than the ones saying you're qualified to review a game unless you actually play it because...? That's right, shut up!

Just uninstalled.

I find that this game is VERY pretty to look at aswell, the character design is brilliant, the animation is great, and yea the music is spectacular. Character creation is really fun and atmospheric.

But the game COMPLETELY falls on it's face when it comes to gameplay, I don't mind a game taking similar concepts from WOW, but when I saw the hearthstone on the bottom.... and then the talent tree... the Item bag, I honestly vomited a little in my mouth.

And then as a summoner when I began casting fireballs and I seen a little familiar bar fill up across the screen... and then a mob creature hit me and I saw "spell interrupted".

I immediately uninstalled after that, I'm looking to ESCAPE World of Warcraft, not jump back into it.

Kudos to the art design team behind this game, they did really did great work, but when it comes to gameplay this game falls flat on it's face.

I totally agree with you...

I tried to like this game, I really did.

Overall, the look of the game isn't too bad. Though the characters seem a little too colorful at times...when comparing them to their backgrounds anyway. The fighting animations are horrible though. They are choppy and overall, aren't that amazing when you consider how amazing skill/spell effects usually are in MMOs.

The music is nice....when it is actually there anyway. Trust me, I know how annoying looping tracks for zones can get but it is better than no sound at all. There were seriously times where there was no background sound effects AND no music. Come on...wtf!

The game play seriously made me want to cry. It was basically a double click and let your character have at it auto style. To switch it up, I used a skill. Guess what...it looked the same as the regular attack minus the few effects that they threw in. Even then...my character was still in auto attack mode. Most games are like that with auto attacking, but most games also have cool affects and plenty of skills and heals for you to throw in and switch it up. I don't even remember having to heal once.  And talk about lag of aggro...the game practically has none.

Overall...the game bored the heck out of me. I got my chick to lvl 16 in about 1 1/2 hrs and then uninstalled the game.
