We just won best graphics & company and a number of awards, and also youtube is favouring us highly when ppl type in "best mmo" or something similar.
New players are heading to the game in quite large numbers. Although alot of them leave due to the grinding..alot do stay, and end up lovign this game as most high levelers do.
The new patch is also adding a few new dungeons for all level brackets which is good..and there is rumour of a new race or a new map coming too - but it isnt confirmed yet.
Regardless, give this game time, and it will be great, meanwhile play a different game, or bypass this one to have a bit more fun :P
I really don't understand how it won the "best MMO" awards. Graphics... ok fair enough as they are pretty decent when they work and aren't glitched out. But with the amount of people who complain about unbalanced classes, bugs, lag, etc. etc. I really don't see how it won.
I think another reason why people don't stay is that yes it's a free MMO, but realisticaly you have to pay to get anywhere fast.
New patch won't be having a new race, that was just a rumor that the Nach would be playable. Been confirmed to be just a rumour for now, however there were some very kl looking demon/krux race wielding swords. So maybe in 6.0 we'll see who those were.
They were aparently increasing level cap to 75(like we need that, only a handful are even 70) and adding a new map for 70+. But as far as I know, no confirmation on that.
Well, lets just hope they actualy add some decent content, not just old maps swapped about with a new boss like DS, WS and RM.
