SotA - First Impressions
« on: April 09, 2018, 10:02:34 AM »
I luv this game (so far). One of my children gave me the game and it launched officially last week. I figure based on the size of the world, the number of quests etc that I probably will die of old age (and i have a good start on that!) before i experience everything in the game.

I have been playing on and off since beta (kickstarter) and I just cannot get into it.

For me it is a new sandbox to play in. Just character building at the moment. I am playing the online game in private mode so I don't have to suffer any fools! hehehehe

I did actually go so far as to install it during beta, but just never went much further than that.  The one I really need to try out is:

I'm actually giving it a whirl now (Legends of Aria).  Here's my referral link:

I feel exactly the same. Can't figure out why. I SHOULD love it, but it just isn't clicking with me. It actually made me play UO again.

I've been waiting for a trial to check this game out, but I've been following it for a few years now. It has promise, but I am not going to buy it without trying it first.

Are you running into a lot of other players? When I did the free trial, it seemed like there weren't very many other people around. Then again I might just have been in the newbie zones.

I just logged off a bit ago.  I saw a few, but that was in the starting area.  I'm overwhelmed by the feeling of UO in Aria though.  I'm looking forward to playing it a bit more.

I get the impression the world is huge though.  So we'll see.

I'm planning on trying SoA again as well.  I didn't give it much of a chance the first time.

That is the feeling I'm looking for and great to hear!  :)
