    For the 2 or 3 of you interested, there's an indie MMO being developed called Dawntide that's set to go into open beta sometime this week. I'll just let their description speak for itself.

    Pretty lofty goals for an indie company. A few years back, there was pre-release interest for that abortion of a clusterfuck, Darkfall. Based on the hype, this one appears to be going after that same sort of oldschool, Ultima Online-type world building angle. Whether or not it'll pull it off remains to be seen. For the graphics whores among you, it's got a definite "indie" look to it, but if the gameplay is what they say, the graphics are more than adequate for it.

    Have a look. http://www.dawntide.net/

    I'll probably give it a go this weekend, assuming the beta goes live by or before then.

    Even DraQ can play this one.

    If you've created an account and logged in through the forums you can download the client beforehand, so you're not fighting over bandwidth with 200 other people on friday.

    kinda sounds like a more traditional and more boring version of love.

    I actually got into beta a while ago and forgot. I most like the combat system:

    Hopefully it plays out as strategically as it sounds on paper.

    Installing and playing now. Will give opinion in a few hours. EDIT: Shit never mind they ran into instability issues and the servers are down.

    My impressions, buggy, laggy, a true beta, be aware of that. It's going to crash, it's going to lag, but it seems like it will be an alright game. It almost reminds me of a 3d haven and hearth.

    Pretty much same impressions here. Do you know where I can find mobs to test out the combat system. And/or learn skills/stances to mess with?

    I didn't spawn with any weapons, but mobs you can find all over, snakes and rats mainly.

    Interesting. I spawned with weapon and armor but there were no mobs, but plenty of bugged out players. I would've explored more but I crashed. I'll probably check out the forums and read up on the game before trying again tomorrow.

    Doh! My thread and I completely forgot about this. Been putting together some pieces for my outdoor mancave and I got distracted.

    So it is a buggy, feature-crippled "true" beta? Perfect! I assume, roll-a-die, that there are people bitching that the game isn't finished. Typical. Downloading now.

    Bah. I'm completely fine with testing out a game, reporting bugs as I see them and just generally trying to break things for the greater developmental good, but falling through the ground every 5 in-game feet makes that nigh impossible.
