    Awesome! Can't wait for this game. This is the first MMO that actually made me consider paying a monthly fee.

    As long they don't make the game into a two-tier system where those who are prepared to spend real cash on in game items will get major boosts over those that don't.

    So what did everyone think?

    Apart from the initial server problems it ran pretty smoothly for a starting beta, the main problem was the sound and physics glitches which were to be expected and the memory leak, mine peaked at 3.5GB usage which is a lot considering I only have 6GB total.

    Talking on a Vent server with some others playing and apparently we aren't allowed to talk about the game with non beta testers and screenshots were also disabled (although I managed to take a few by running windowed mode :D).

    It played better than a fair few beta's I've played - The snags here and there were, well, expected - Especially for their first foray into the whole.. MMO market.

    Their beta agreement does seem a lot more restrictive than most betas, but hey, I've seen worse.

    I'm looking forward to a full on release.
