Dragon's Prophet Open Beta Announced, Dragon Filled Trailer Released
Queue up the Pokemon theme, because in just a little over a week players will be able to fight, capture and train over 300 unique dragons during the Dragon's Prophet open beta. Both SOE (NA) and Infernum (EU) the regional publishers of Dragon's Prophet announced the MMO would be headed into Open beta starting on May 30th.
To celebrate, the publishers have dissolved the NDA, allowing everyone to capture and share gameplay of the MMO and giving me an excuse to record a First Look (which I'll get to sometime later today).
A new trailer has also been released with plenty of appropriately themed music and shots of dragons with their trainers doing dragony things. Personally, I prefer to mute the trailer and play the Pokemon theme over it instead, it goes surprisingly well.

The way you 'tame' your dragon is a joke. You have to keep a thingy in between a circle to tame it so that your red meter grows, but for some reason the dragon's yellow meter grows as well even if you keep it in the circle, so it's a game of luck really, and it makes it even harder since it very often it lags or skips frames and you find that your dot thingy is out of the circle.
The combat is really bad, the game skips frames or lags and many times the attacks don't appear so you don't get the damage you should get. The combo system doesn't work. For example you if you press the basic attack it changes your special attack, if you press it again it changes it again. But if you press basic basic special, it takes the game 1 second to realize what button you pressed, wasting precious time and leaving you open for enemy attacks.
The writing in the game is not completed. Many NPC have the name sys_124sdf25h42214 or something like that.
Finally it seems like at least in the European server the forums that say anything bad about the game are deleted. There should have been hundreds of them, yet you can find only a few and they are either about voting for what dragon types you want in the game or a forum praising the game for being good, and in reality you can see that it is really bad as many people above me have pointed out.
What am I trying to point out? Buy Monster Hunter, It's thousands of times better, Dragon's Prophet is more useless than the dung in Monster Hunter.
and now for the game: took me 4h to get to lvl 12. there are 3 very important things this game is lacking: a friendly community, bug fixes and complete translation. if it gets released, even into OB (though something tells me they either plan a retail release or a more vast p2w cash shop considering the so-called legendary starter packs), without those issues being addressed, don't even bother trying. u'll be disappointed beyond tears. as for those above that said u need to pay for 298 dragons while being able to catch only 2, i got this to say: what game have you been playing? i had 3 dragons at lvl 10... and as far as i managed to see, by the time u hit 20, u can have about 10 dragons or so, provided u pay for the extra slots since u can only have 2 with u and 3 in the dragon bank (idiotic name but meh...). u guys should seriously try out a game properly before you start with your senseless bashing.
I haven't had any beta experience like those above, but I also think that saying 'they can't fix it in time' just speculation-- and I have faith in the dev's...at least as long as Sony is holding the whip.
