I've been lurking here for quite a while now, and I have to say, I'm very impressed with the direction of the game thus far.
I've read the feature list, and have to say that I'm a bit skeptical, but there is a reason why. I've been burned by two games already, warhammer online and mortal online. Both games promised much, and have delivered very little thus far. I want to preorder this game, but I'm hesitant at this point.
If I preorder today, when is the projected time that I will be able to test features and such in the beta? Judging from the features, this game seems to be following a UO-isque type gameplay, is this a correct assumption?
In short, I'm asking you all to banish my fears that this game could be an utter failure. I don't see that happening, but from the games I've been burned by, it's hard for me not to think this way. No offense to you guys. Thanks!
