    From what I hear, the same history as PS1!, far from ready, realeased for its second beta test as a completed game.

    Yeah. If we imagine the progress added in the last month (ok they added esamir) but they are still very much experimenting. And yesterday I had some of the worst lag (not fps, server lag) that I ever had.

    I am still not convinced they know exactly what they are doing with the game.

    I think their accountants have forced them.

    Best quote ever, the game is no where near ready imo. Guess thats the way with games and even more so MMO's (fpsmmo i know).

    To be fair, I do have faith in them getting it right - the game is getting better (besides the weird lag yesterday). Of course there'll be many changes over the months/years to come, but at some point they have no choice but to release.

    To be fair, there is hardly any MMO that is not in a sort of beta state when launched.

    @Endangerment: Alpha Squad is not worth the money. 4000 SC is only worth about 12€, not 35€, as you can get it with various discounts (double and triple SC weekends, SC cards that give 500 bonus SC).

    As for SOE doing a live beta, nothing new there. For example, they've been doing the same thing with every single Everquest 2 game update and expansion. It took them 9 months to make 1 zone fully playable (one raidmob a month) after putting it on the live servers. They appear to listen on the forums for now, but the way they handle things hasn't changed at all.

    That's a really bad time for me. The GF and I are expecting our firstborn around that time. So I hope they delay it
