My brother, wife, and myself are all starting new Empire characters. I'd like to get a VGF guild going (for reals this time), but I'll have to see what the restrictions regarding F2P guilds are.

The servers and launcher will be down for most of the day while they update the game. After that, feel free to post your character name on here.

Edit: Damn typo.

I paid to play before and stopped my sub right when they announced the F2P option. Will most likely get my disk out and try it again for the Storylines. Can't say I'll get all hardcore on it as with every other MMO for me.

I will try it for a couple of levels just to see how it is. I cant really say how often or much I will play.

Free is exactly what an MMO is worth, so I'll give it a whirl.

I'd like to but the last thing my backlog needs is an MMO right now.

Me, me, me! No clue when I'll actually get around to it, heh. Got quite a few games that are really a priority at the moment.

I have absolutely no doubt that you are playing it just so you can "legitimately" hate on it later.

You're a real punk!

PC Gamer put out yet ANOTHER article a few days ago about differences in paid and F2P. I didn't read the whole thing, since I'll be playing and see for myself anyways. It seems that F2P accounts will have two skill bars to use (which is needed for this game IMO), and any purple items that subscribers had BEFORE they left the game will still be usable. Any NEW purple items will be locked, and can be unlocked weekly (rather than a one time fee per item, which is the way it should be). Still not sure if this means "purple armor and weapons only" or if this includes "purple upgrades." Purple upgrades to moddable items are the highest tier available. Purple weapons/armors are the highest tier, require a ton of PvP or Operations tokens o get, and have fixed stats.

I'll probably play it whenever I end up owning a Windows computer that can run it. Whether or not that will be before EA shuts down the servers, I can't say, which is why I say "probably."

I'm sort of uncomfortable playing a game with lots of other people in it though.

Not me. I am more into the fantasy type MMOs not the Sci-Fi.

My computer probably isn't good enough to run the damn thing. Shame, but what can you do?

play Spiral Knights instead *sunglasses*

For the thousandth time, DV, the other people are incidental and you can play the game without ever grouping up.

I may give it a shot eventually. we'll see

I checked it out yesterday and they wanted my phone number to sign up. That weirded me out a bit. I suppose I can give them my google voice number.

Yes, but they might be standing over there watching me while I do stuff.

Posted on Nov 16, 2012 11:05:01 AM PST

I'm thinking of playing again. My trooper companion, Jorgan, keeps e-mailing me saying how much he misses me. He told me when this is all over, we should get an apartment together.
