    Boring !!! I ‘m still waiting a game with open world pvp and sieges like l2 -.-

    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.

  7. Lukkano on July 17, 2015

    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

    Great game! Long time I didn’t enjoyed an MMO like that

  10. zazoo on July 17, 2015

    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

      Can we have this post moderated please?

      • kikiinurmouth on July 18, 2015

        Why? So truth hidden and fanboi up of a bad p2w game?

        • Merkadis on July 18, 2015

          Ugh… what p2w you sad, sad creature?
          You can buy cash shop with in-game currency in Skyforge, no strings attached. So WTF are you on about here? Sigh.. s.t.u.p.i.d sh.it.head kids…

    • Deyirn on July 17, 2015

      OK, I get it now.

      1. You hate Russians, probably you have a small cock.
      2. You think every F2P MMO is a WoW clone, yeah Allods was very much like WoW, but not this one, it looks really different, diverse and solid, too bad I won’t be able to play it any time soon, since I bought The Elder Scrolls Online recently. But your statement is wrong, you are just too shallow to begin with and instead of raging, you should try to write down something constructive, or stop trying to give yourself Carpal Tunnel Syndrome for no particular reason.
      3. You are obviously too stupid to comprehend your own stupidity.

    • Deyirn on July 18, 2015

      Cope paste?! OK, I won’t be a Grammar Nazi on your “English” but where is it copied from? Looks pretty original to me.

  13. Jafarson on July 16, 2015

    • elli on July 17, 2015

      I don’t think you know what anime is.

    • yokki on July 17, 2015

      graphics are not better than tera. they are prety good though. they did nice work there.

      • Merkadis on July 17, 2015

        Well duh they ARE better than what tera offers obviously, and with a much better performance to boot…

        • kikiinurmouth on July 18, 2015

          • LearnEnglish on July 18, 2015

            Dude, shut up and take a few english classes!

        • yokki on July 18, 2015

          better performance yes. but not better graphics than tera.

          • Eviil on July 20, 2015

            Tera Online has released a Hi-Res patch in the year 2012. I played it since release when I used to pay for subscription and I play it now. both on an Nvidia 970 that has 4GB of usable ram, on 1440P Skyforge looks better.

  14. Sladik on July 16, 2015

    NICE! I’ve been waiting a while for this one!
    Shame it’s going into open beta a month before school starts, though…
