OP  7/12/13 6:45:57 AM#1

I love trying out indie mmos...So i found out about THE today,,,,followed the directions..downloaded it..registered...logged in...went through the minimalistic character creation and logged into the world...The default settings were beyond LOW so i went to options..raised the bar a bit...and pressed SAVE. Nothing changed...I thought ''i must restart the client duh''.In the mean time i had to run some rrants so after 2 hours i  tried to log back in i got the message ''Add game time''.Appears that the time trial lasts for a WHOLE HOUR (confirmed it at website). And not a whole IN GAME hour but an hour after you first log in!!

Wow a whole hour to make me decide whether i ll subscribe to this complete unknown indie mmo for 15$ per month which  is the same sub price i could be paying for AAA games . I mean i could be spending 15$ per month in a game like RIFT and get so much ...All i got to say to the dev of this game is this:

I played/tried almost everything there is out there in the mmo rpg world. Unless you got a an indie wow killer hidden there, there is absolutely NOTHING to justify this kind of pricing/trial period limit.Good Luck.!!!

im like you, i like to check out little known or played mmo's. i never did try this out. the cost of entry for something completely unknown was pretty ridiculous.

I've never heard of the game. I just found a clip of it on youtube, and what I saw there did not justify a subscription, let alone 15 bucks.

What a weird game and company.

Feel like trying Planetside 2? Get a headstart with the starter kit!

This is the reason all developers get a bad rap - games like this.  There were others I tried that were the same way.

I've started gaming as early as Meridian59 and so the graphics of this didn't have to dulling of an effect on me but a $15 monthly sub for this? As another has said, if I am going to pay that much for a monthly sub, I'd expect AAA gaming. The dev's  sure have got on to their high horse here.

After seeing this thread I actually got curious of what could be so special about this game that they only give a 1 hour trial and demand 15$ a month, so I watched that German vid of actual gameplay.

 

I will spare you the long list of bugs and missing basic features and just quote one epic thing:

The player got in contact with the dev team and clearly said that 1 hour is nowhere near enough to get a glimpse of the game.

 

Dev: Well then, you are our most active player - how long should the trial be?

Player: 3 days at least - a full week would be better.

Dev: Yeah.... my wife doesn't want me to extend the trial time.

 

LOL

The great obstacle to discovery is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.
