And the combat system...takes getting used to. I thought it would be a hack and slash through mouse...not the numerical keys....

Installed it last night but only got through the opening quest (about to do the Blacksmith quest outside the gates of Tortage next). So far I like it, I like the opening quest are instanced so there aren't 40 people running around kill the same 20 wolves and that there is a story element.

Grpahically, it auto loaded everything at medium, I clicked the High button and restarted the client and it looks pretty good. FRAPS says I'm between 45 and 90 fps across a variety of situations and there is only a tiny amount of hitching as new texture sets load. I haven't turned on AA yet, but AF is at 16 and I've got draw distances around 80%. We'll see what happens when I get into the main game world, but so far I'm impressed. And the little touches here and there really make the environment.

well i got the game last night, not going to get a new system until mid july, hopefully can hold out that long

took all night to install, i tried it this morning before work,

really hard to make a judgment since only played for about 15-20 minutes, it played on my system, but it probably put most of the graphic settings very low in order to play, because it looked so so, nothing special, and it was slow.

Turning off shadows is the quickest way to FPS with this game right now. I hope they fix the engine soon though.

I think that the starter area could use a little more tutorial, but overall it's honestly doing better than I expected. I still get an error every time I close the game, but the game runs great on my system under Vista Ultimate 64bit.

I have been enjoying the game alot, though I probably won't venture onto the PvP servers anymore. The ganking just bores me. It wasn't that I was getting ganked, but the fact that I was able to so easily gank so many people, so easily......it was just lame. The PvE servers so far have been more fun for me, so I'm sticking to them.
I was an open beta tester. It was a very good time, but issues such as falling through the steps and bridges (through as in solid material) in the starting city were frustrating. I know they have fixed it since.

I doubt I will continue playing, but I can say it was good - and quite bloody.

I actually have everything maxed with shadows to low and it runs very smoothly between 30 and 60 fps in almost any situation...with shadows on it's a slideshow and I have to sacrifice other image quality settings to get it playable. Very weird.

Have you guys noticed after the last patch that the game is jittery? I get it when ever I turn where as I didn't get this before the patch. The other guys on vent noticed it also.

On another note about the patch, I am glad they put in the traders so early. Kudos to Funcom. They are looking like they really do care about their game and the service they provide to their customers. That is one thing that made WoW so successful.

Good, I thought I was going nuts, I played for an hour earlier in the week and had no hitching, then after the patch I was wondering if I just didn't notice it at first. I cranked everything to high and it's overall a smooth experience, but I haven't turned on AA yet.
