Managed to get a key to the closed beta after the pvp changes, under NDA for details but suffice to say I've lost all interest and suggest people wait to see exactly what the game is now before ordering.

I'd have been all over it if it were like the beta we had last year, it looked really promising.

I'm going to wait for release because I don't have any money to pre-order.

I have heard the same from early beta testers, but here are my thoughts:

In Star Citizen there is a a group of players that are pvp focused. When CIG changed the combat mechanics and introduced auto gimbal turrets, they lost their minds claiming the game is now crap.

CIG made changes that a small group of pvpers didnt like, but the change was more beneficial for the larger community.

I expect any changes New World made from the early beta were done to make the game more appealing to a broader audience.

I would suggest that anybody who is going to be upset about spending $50 on a game they dont like, to not bother buying it until its been out for a few months.

I don't know i look at this and really feel like this game is 10 years behind and very basic looking. I didnt see anything really about any storyline etc reminds me alot on that whole Warhammer MMO that was made way back when(even the graphics). I need something more complicated when it comes to MMOs.

Looks good, I could see us having fun in this. I will however hold off until maybe some time in April before launch to get more feedback if I will decide on it. I don't care if there are good and bad sides as long as, like SC, we have fun and enjoy the game as a whole

Already pre-ordered. If they haven't changed everything from the alpha we'll be better off if we have a list of crafting skills so we can make anything and don't just have 50 blacksmiths...
