Regardless, I am still quite excited about the release. I've stuck with it since Alpha and much like SC, I'm in it to win it! As soon as a server is chosen I'll be there with bells on... or a fancy tri-corner hat.
I liked the first version. It seemed like I was a European stranded in an alt Americas. The second version which I played with some of you was not as good. It had gone too magically with sections of swirling arenas of difficult to understand combat.
