They usually do have them a few months down the road where you download the game and buy the CD-key for decently cheap.

But it will probably be cheaper if you sign up for a long time (that seems to be popular among MMOs right now).

In "any" event, I just made a hard decision. I canceled my World of Warcraft preorder, (after playing WoW, I seriously question its long term replay value, While the game itself its fun. I found myself in beta wearing out on it) Alot of rude battle.net type players in the beta ass well which frightens me just as more.

Sony on the other hand may torture me with an incomplete game. I just feel they will be more successful.

My time in the beta thus far has sold me without a doubt. I've been looking for a new MMORPG since I quit EQL. I've tried most of them and this beta has been the first one to give me that "magic" again.

Exploring Nektulos forest tonight (dying and all) and having to run from everything was great! Imagine my suprise when I stumbled upon the towers in Commonlands and getting to ride a griffin TO Nek forest.

Just awesome.

I just hope I'll be able to play it @ 4x/16x with reasonable frame rates.

1024x768 resolution.

AA isn't working atm but I haven't missed it yet. As far as playable at 1024, it can be for sure. I have a buddy running at 1280x960 in balanced mode on a 2.6P4 and 9600Pro and he has no complaints.

I'm running 1024 as a trade off for running texture qualities on max with 8xAF. LOTS of settings to tweak.

$14.99 is what they went up to (from like $9.99) per month a coupla years ago or so... tbh, I'm a college student and I don't exactly have a lot of money to burn. Dunno here...

One thing is for certain, if it crashes on my comp like the first one did, no way will I pay that. 2-15 minutes before complete computer crashes, requiring a hard reset isn't worth paying a subscription fee for. If I could try it to see... If it runs stable here, I might give it a shot for awhile...though I'm not yet decided.

No Anti aliasing? any info on this being corrected? This could easily sway me right back to World of Warcraft. I dont have an expensive monitor and I want anti aliasing.

Dont mislead me with hype or your opinion. Just give me an honest straight up answer. If there is no "word" of a fix. I will probably cancel my order right now.
