I've canceled amazon preorders before, so I would imagine so. I would make a statement about the beta not being a demo and shouldn't be used as one, but two weeks or so before release if it sucks I will cancel as well, so I shouldn't talk.

I finally got the whole damn thing downloaded and now they have server maintenance for two hours. Bah!

I've been in the beta test for a while, and I don't mind telling you it's a horrible game. I would definitely suggest that anyone interested in this game try it out before they waste their money.

WHY do you think it is horrible?

Anyway I logged on and made my character but when I try to start the game it says it is "full," so I guess during the open beta there is a quota of how many can play at once? Lame.

I played in the closed beta for a few weeks and I have to say I wasn't impressed.

Ground combat is pretty lame. Starship combat is OK... it was the most fun part of the game for me.

Like all cryptic games it's heavily heavily instanced which I tend to really dislike.

The graphics are pretty good.

Never PVP'd so I can't comment but I hear it's arena/BG style so I'm not really excited about that.

Server performance was terrible... but it's a beta so I guess it's to be expected.

IMO it's been like every single mmo released in the last 5 years.... absolutely mediocre.

Until someone comes out and really changes the game I feel like every mmo will enjoy 2-3 months of success until it's player base leaves out of boredom or the next big thing.

Yeah FFXI was terrible for that...

You just need to have a free account, not be a subscriber. Client is downloading via torrent. Much faster that way.
