in reply to that post...
It could have been.
This game lost focus. It had the support of countless BIG guilds from wow and darkfall. People are still waiting for a quality game to sink there wallets into and still are at a loss to find one. Xsyon lost focus.. they sold out to carebears and didn't put enough resources into fixing the broken mechanics and combat issues.. like it or not 90% of the subs that left... left soely becuase of the combat issue...
This game had the endorsment of ripperX (with risking sounding like a fanboy) he is practiaclly a legend in Gaming circles.... hes featured on countless videos mmo websites and gamers forums. He LOVED the game.. the mercs wanted to be an active guild.. with broken promises and hastly created bug fixes that rolled back time and created more problems than they fixed most times they left after about a month. Some of the bigger guild started pulling back.. did Notorious do anything to keep us here.. nope they simple offered a refund as if they didn't mind us leaving.
Maybe they didn't.
This game had the most potential of any game released in the last 10 years... look at it now.. still struggeling.. still with the same bugs and game mechanic issues... still with broken combat.. now the devs are working on less of a budget as subscriptions are surely not being upped and new ones are being added as often.
Its a shame..
The game concept of open world ffa with conquesting territories along with its tradeskills would have made this game the best game on the market to date.
Currently it has sloppy combat .... protected areas.. no conquesting.... the tradeskills and crafts are nice... I'll give it that...
Skill progression.. has it been fixed? What bout stat points?
Any new mobs or are there just a handful of animals still?
