Shadowbane

So I have been trying out the SB beta for the last couple of days and must say I am pleasantly surprised. Is anyone else playing it? If so what do you think? My highest level char so far is 5th level but overall it has been a fairly enjoyable experience. If they can fix the lag by launch I will definately be buying this one. I especially like the character creation it seems to really allow you to do a lot of different things with your character. It does seem like it will be hard to balance all of these variations but I like the idea none the less.

Rarely has a game gotten more mixed reviews. For not being long in the world you have some of the more positive things to say, MANY folks seem to hate at first blush and then later say it has some things to offer.... A couple of my guild mates are in the beta, some think it''s garbage others feel it has a lot of potential (I said the same thing about AO, but bugs and to little to late feature delivery tanked that one). We are going all pick it up and jump at release hell or high water, and give it a shot. AC2 just sort of petered out for all of us at once. We all just looked around and said ""well that is about it"", it was kind of a strange moment actually. We are a really small guild so I doubt we will be very successful but with the ability join a larger guild without loosing our core identity perhaps things will work out in general.

The AC2 Beta really turned me off. I felt they dumbed the game down way too much. Personally I like things to be a bit more complicated. If you guys get a guild together let me know I would be interested in joining if possible.
