Personally I was bored very quickly - it's more a fantasy deathmatch
than an MMO. All numbers and stats are provided up front, so players
can numbercrunch to work out the most efficient attack chains and
power combinations. And considering how much the guild combat is
being pushed, anyone who doesn't will get walked over by the ub3r

I can see the appeal for some. But I like at least some immersion in
my RPG's, to feel like I am playing a role, and not just a game.
