I go by the name of Mal I'm a looong time mmo gamer. Started back in 97 with UO. Found out about this game a couple of months ago while looking for something new to play. I was blown away with what I found. Graphics, sandbox and the free to do what you want sounds a bit UOish except a lot prettier! Graphics look amazing! Anyway I've been trying for a couple of days to see if I could get into a Korean or Russian server with no luck. Looks like I might be able to create an account if I get a Korean ip through a vpn service? Honestly I'm pretty lost with the whole thing and am on the verge of giving up and just waiting for the US release. I so wanted to give this a try before I have to go back to work. (I'm off for the next couple of weeks).
I did download the RU version and was able to create an account. Kept getting the error "unable to load game data". Korean download is going painfully slow even on my 28mbps service. And still no account.
Question is, is it worth it to keep trying? Or should I just wait? I will not be able to understand any Korean or Russian. But really wanted to see how it ran on my PC so I could plan an upgrade if needed.
Any help or suggestion would be greatly appreciated. PM me if necessary. If not I guess i'll see you all in the US release. Looks like that might happen and is getting close.
