Valid reasons to skip it but...there is no real purchase involved.


Even so.. it doesn't seem like it will be worth my time, especially considering the fact that it's become pretty apparent that one needs to pay in order to progress at a comparable rate to those who subscribe or purchase founder's packs (mostly referencing LP regen). The game seems to reek of PW2, and I refuse to support such models.


I can't really comment on it too much. During the time I played I never had any issue with my LP running low. They never even got to the halfway point. But I also was just very casual about it all. I spent time farming and hunting monsters and fishing. Never got into the crafting part of it all since I was more on the side of supplying materials. It didn't really seem like the type of game where you really wanted to rush to max levels and stuff. To me it just seems more of a slow paced relaxing type of game where you just do what you want. I can see how if one was a PvP type of person that reaching that point would be ones only objective. Maybe then it would actually become an issue. I also haven't really played since they put in 1.2 so that also makes my knowledge of it all more outdated. I honestly don't know if I will play much despite buying the founder's pack though. I was kind of disappointed by the bard/songcraft skills.

From what I gather, LP really matters later on in the game, especially for those who are really invested in the crafting/farming aspects of the game and judging from the rate of LP gain compared to a subscriber/founder, it's not feasible to play on a F2P account to get any kind of enjoyment out of the game. I've also heard that some of the best gear is available directly through crafting, which obviously gives subscribers a HUGE advantage over F2P members... that in and of itself is a turn-off for me. I was already on the fence when it came to the tedious questing/dated combat as it was anyways, and the business model itself pretty much solidified this game as a no go for me.

I don't know what to think after all that DDoSing and land plot issues and whatnot. What a rocky release. I'll know how good it is in a week.

Yea, it got a really rocky release, and i can't believe how easy it is to claim the lands by just rushing 15 gilda star, buy a house and then claim the damn land while some lucky players got so much arch boxes thanks to some bug that turn them into land barons. I was also in headstart but however i don't have any lands since almost all of them are taken. Guess i will have to wait til a few weeks to wait for those damnable land barons to collapse from land tax and claim their land.

So it's pretty futile trying to play as a F2P member. It took me 6 hours to clear the queue, and by the time I did, it was pretty much time for me to head to bed. I don't think I'm even going to bother attempting to play again until the MMO rat race slows down to some extent.

LOL, are you in LC ? Our guild apparantly had an KoS policy for LC because well Kirito is a famous criminal in the game and our guild is being knights and chivalrous, i almost got kicked out of the guild once because i stole another player's unprotected farms and didn't know our guild's policy of 0 crime points.

Game is crap people. Might as well just skip it unless you want 6-8 hour queues. Safe to say you spend more time logging in then acturally playing.
