I wouldn't call the game derivative however, about 3 hours in I realized I was fixated on looking at the status and skill bars rather than the action on screen. It was the most uncomfortable feeling in the world with all the action going on in my peripheral vision.

At that point I was like "Yep, uninstall".

Can someone tell me when the game starts to get fun?
I've played like 4 hours and I fill like no progressing at all. Just going here and there collecting sparks and doing nothing but clicking at monsters and doing one or two combos every time.
I play with friends but is so slow to collect sparks for everyone without talking about the drop that is just shit, I've only got rings and more rings.
I don't know what to think about this game, for now is one of the most boring games I've played so far.

I wanted to play this game so much... but my computer didn't. The graphics have a splintery effect below medium level, which make my eyes bleed. Won't play this game until I get a better PC.

Game is ok and has some nice things that pulled me in, However there are weekly caps on your progression and some has managed to hit those within hours.. its what i would like to call a casuall mmo atm, i donnu what to think of the game yet tbh i whanna hit endgame in it to be 100% sure.. gottha say i love the avangers assamble theme in the game lol..

Have to agree doh the voice acting is awful and your character dont have a voice instead u have to space the convo forward.. there are no choices (swtor style) its more or less one linear story for all classes.. we will see.

game is trash, just played it. trash. not fun, no quality. nothing but as said above "generic paste generic mmo" and of course it comes with the typical shitty asian / anime touch. gtfo.

Having a ton of fun with Skyforge, best Lvling system in an mmo that I have ever seen. Yes they have cut corners by not offering 37 unique pieces of armor for each boss; or an endless open world you will only explore ONCE, This should leave them more time to continue to deliver content. I diffidently think they are heading in the right direction for a F2P mmo, and not taking the "hey this is how wow has done it" approach makes Skyforge a game to be hopeful about.
P.S. The voice acting kills me slowly inside

Copy paste generic mmo, its a pay to win also + monthly premium like subscription, from very shitty rushit devs who made wow clone, same story again, never support rushit criminals, let rushits pay for own shitzz
