    Anyone going to be playing RF online Beta?

    Got my beta key and just waiting for phase 3 of beta testing to start to get in. (expected shortly)

    Over a million people in SE asia play this already and we've got it coming to USA/EU 24th Feb i believe.

    Looks like sci-fi/fantasy/mech version of WoW.

    Yeah looks pretty good from what I've seen, you can deffinitely see the asian influences in the game, looks completely different from a western MMO, more like a FF game. Don't know anything about the gameplay though. I might check it out but I'm firewalled untill I move house

    Looks good but i'd be interested to know what the play style is like compaird to wow or guildwars. Like the look of the Accretia altho can see them being well overplayed over here (think alliance in wow )

    The idea of defeating the other 2 races to control the mine for a short while smacks of planetside's expansiton to me and that was abit of a pain imo.

    Currently have an Accretian Ranger at lvl19 on Spirit, on Sunday morning the server went down so created a new char on Earth. Cora Spiritualist lvl 10, sexy female named Sylia, so watch your back Geist

    Have you tried mining yet? thats just mad, left it running overnight and collected over 400 ore, only problem is when you come to refine the stuff, 99 ore+3 costs 550k to refine it, so you need bucket loads of cp if your going to do it long term.

    Havnt tried mining yet was going to tonight. I'm up to lev 16. The games good because its something new. PVP is ment to be excelent tho but its mass grind of moving from one creature type to the next. Not sure if Earth is still set to x3 exp tho.

    Will post some screens later altho there not to interesting just yet.

    I havnt done any pvp yet and thats the whole focus of the game. the skill up system seems ok but it takes ages to skill up things like shields(only skill up when u block). atm tho u only get 1 quest per level thats sent to u, so no running back to npc's. Alot of the npcs have a quest choice so id imagine u'll be able to do normal quests.

    the chip wars in it are massive 3 way fights. the winners control the main mine till the next war and that allows them to mine at a much higher rate. u need to mine to get armor/weapon upgrades.

    It looks great and aslong as u get a good group of ppl at the higher levels it'll be fun. But it is just killing mobs atm and considering its bn out for a year already its abit worrying. Add on the race imbalance that seems to be around in the beta and the games not looking wonderful

    Just to ditto what Geist said, the game has a lot of promise but 1 quest per level, having 1 or 2 creatures to kill for 15-30mins straight at lower levels while spamming healing potions is NOT my idea of fun, there is 0 skill in this game at all. Its a grinding game and all based on equipment, the PVP may be fun and the economy is MUCH better balanced than WoW but WoW has an awful lot more skill to it.

    The other main problem that i see is that Codemasters who have licenced it from the company who made it in Korea doesn't look like they are willing/able to change the code to cope with the western market demands.

    As such i don't think its going to make any kind of impact on the MMORPG market.

    The game is great till about lvl 20, but after that, 1hr+ of killing the same mob again and again and again to gain a single level is utterly ****e.

    yup Accreatians are cyborgs so robot names ftw. Theres about 5 Cora males the rest are female (spell casters) I have no idea about Bellato but they seem to have 5x the players the others have as everyone wants to get a mech.

    btw to let you know that RFonline is good and if you READ what the makers say that the whole point of 1-30 is a continiouse grind so that you dont get stuck mucking about, you only get a few skills till 30 but at 30 you can deversify your character and the pvp is like DAOC in the fact of 3 realm fighting...... so ur comment on wow has more skill.. i laugh at you and if you got to 50 u might not have the same idea..

    Why would anyone want to grind for 30 levels though?

    DAOC pvp had little to do with skill btw.
