There are some claims that the world in this game is persistent. But from what I'm seeing at a quick glance, the locations are called "maps" and this game seems more of a map-rotation based First person sworder (ala Rune) than MMORPG.

As far as I know, the game has a persistent world about as much as Unreal Tournament does.

Is there a quote or something that you're referring to?

" Powered by Epic GamesUnreal Engine 3, Forge combines MMO-style PvP with skill-based FPS combat, zero level grinding, and strategic gameplay in a persistent world."

 

Has the term "MMO" and "persistent" world been changed to arena-style fighting these past years? To me that sounds like thousands of players in a single world that is persistent (Such as of an true MMORPG). But on the site, it goes "instanced MMO PvP" which is just yet another marketing strategy to deceive the consumers. This game isn't an MMO. Its a first-person-sworder.

haha i dont get it, i have played this dont care if i get banned from the alpha test but in no way does this have a persistant world... it is a fantasy version of unreal tournament.. and not very good at the moment.. but of course its still very early on..

As far as I could understand, they said they are planning to add a persistent world at a later date.

They said MMO-STYLE PvP not that it is a MMO.  Although if they do add a persistent world then I guess it could be considered one, but they have not tried to deceive anyone...

Yes. MMO means nothing anymore, its just a marketing buzz word.
