well yeah, but look at it... it's nothing like the first one, not even the slightest Not to mention that most of those 'events' look like huge cluster fucks to me (I mean that last battle against that dragon looked retarded)
although I praise the fact that they put a singleplayer experience up front
Yeah, I'm happy about the whole single player thing as that's what I end up doing in most MMOs anyways. I like that you get shared rewards for just being at the event, rather than actually grouping up. Reminds me of the way Warhammer Online did theirs, which was one of the few great things they did right.
I got 16/50 points... kinda disappointed by that actually... at least I'll have my Black Moa again now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna blow all the gold I had left on armor and weapons to boost my stats
