Great game for good players
4 June 2013 | by murphy-a-richardSee all my reviews

This game is great I don't see how people can rate it anything below a 7. You will at least get 100 good hours of play time even if you aren't the type of person who likes farming/grinding end game lvs or gear.

Positives: The skill point system allows for very unique builds and makes you feel you are your own character instead of everyone feeling like they are the same as every other caster/support/melee.

The Currency system although a little harsh on the common player is the way it is to keep the economy from being inflated. It will keep you playing a game that doesn't feel like everyone has the same gear and there are no upgrades to be had.I would like to see a small increase in high orb drops personally, to increase crafting which is a great system that gets used to little because of the rarity of high orbs.

One of the best parts of this game is the devs and their communication with in the forums and their players about the game. They take what players say weed out the criers and change the game for the better of the community. They also post weekly about plans and changes coming ahead and 90% of the time keep to the dates they set.

Problems: GGG knows about there issues and most problems are being fixed and or worked on. This is a beta so give them time.

Dysnc is what bugs most players, this will be fixed by release and shouldn't be a problem.

PvP has no reward system yet or incentive to play and compete against other players. Hopefully a ladder type system will be set up before release even if there are no rewards but bragging rights. Looking forward also to cutthroat leagues which have only been tested in small races.

Word of warning: This game is made for the common player to play through and enjoy, but is made for hardcore/skilled players. A newb will not be able to compete against a skilled player, a player who plays very little will have bad gear. This is the way it should be, if you want free gear and for the game to remove playtime/skill this isn't the game for you past beating it in merc.
