Apparently a bunch of their team worked on Vanilla WoW or something. IDK, I just heard about the game today and didn't see any threads on it.

Granok and Draken look like the best races.

Nah, the evil humans and those cat-bunny humanoids are the best.

the faction's trailer have been very funny and i really like the design and look of the game. it seems to be very much like a mix of GW2 and WoW and embracing the core mechanics of both. it has housing + different paths but still having core MMORPG elements refined by WoW.

RPS has a great first hand preview:

http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2013...tar-preview-2/

again: i love the fact that the game is trying to be humourus, colourful and cheery and not FROWNYFACE GRIMDARK.

BUT

i won't get hyped up like last time with GW2 which was kinda underwhelming in the end.

I found out about the game a few months back. I don't even remember how, but it got me kinda excited. I like the cartoony art direction, I like the creature and playable races designs, I like the humor and I like "galactic supremacist douchebag" vibe of the Dominion.

I signed for the beta.

Also, this cinematic is awesome. "Nobody.touch.anything!"

I might try it out, unless it has subscription. Either way, I will NOT stick until endgame. 40-man raids? Yeesh, they were dropped for a reason.

I might try it out because all the different paths look like an interesting mechanic. From totalbiscuit's videos I've seen the warrior and explorer - I'm curious about the "talky" one that's not ready for show yet.

I'm a Browncoat, so if I ever were to play this game my faction of choice would be the Exiles.

I've been following it off and on a bit. I'll probably pick it up sometime to try it out. Like the art style, and the humour amuses me.

Well one does not have to like every game. I mean it's concept is great and all but I don't like the system it works under I just won't like it. Oh well. But unlike the past I have more games to scratch that itch.

Just now heard about it through this thread, thanks.

Seems intriguing, dunno what race particularly strikes my fancy but I suppose Cassian seems the most appealing to me right now. As far as classes go, I think the Spellslinger seems to have the coolest concept just because it's basically a "mage with dual pistols".

The good thing about this game's combat is the fact that every attack cleaves, if you have a big two-handed sword. WOW should have that too.

Also, I seem to be the person who knew about it the soonest. I found out about it when it was revealed.

Interesting, I wonder what the two unknown species are. I liker the Cassians, the aurin and the humans. The paths sounds interesting.

The combat (main attacks with mouse, some specials as hotkeys) actually looks a lot like the combat in Neverwinter, so if you're unsure about this kind of gameplay, you can check it out in that game right now. It even has that same telegraph system.

It looks really good, makes me think of a Ratchet and Clank MMO.

HA! me too well i know from its first trailer, the CGI one.

i am really not interested in the explorer path as it seems to be like collecting vistas or such thing (generell jumping puzzles).

i wanna play as one of the bunnies coz fuck, why not? but i also wanna be dominion!!!

BTW in the exile's faction trailer, on the stonepeople bunk there is a bra. so do stonepeople have stone boobs that need supportin? if so, does a normal bra really suffice?

Me too.
That's why I'll play a Cassian and an Aurin, unless the Dominion gets a better race than Cassians..

Or it could be, you know, the bra of a member of another species? Seeing how the "stonepeople" are described as vulgar mercenaries who aren't strangers to vice, I wouldn't be surprised.

Same here, also for some reason makes me think of other Playstation titles like Spyro or Jack and Daxter in terms of its cartoon style.

I think their VAs are from those Playstation games.

Buddy of mine is in the beta, he's certainly got me interested in it. I love the redonk comedy scifi angle they are going with it. I hear the story flow is really linear and railroaded at times, which I find disappointing as the game features unique mission play styles, explorer and scientist both really appeal to me. I hear the combat is really solid conceptually but choppy at times. At any rate my interest is peaked.

I'm liking the looks of this game. It has charm, character, what seems to be a relatively fleshed out but entirely playful setting and its demonstrated gimmicks look fun and well-designed.

If it's subscription free, I might even play it.
