I'll be a bit suprised if this game is released before June 1st 2014.

That chick with the bunny ears is one shining example of why I have no interest in this game, despite being a big MMO and sci-fi fan. Also the cartoony WoW style art in general. The gameplay may be decent, but if I can't stand to look at the game then it is a miss for me. I doubt it's going to be the only MMO coming out this year with decent gameplay and not featuring what I consider to be silly looking art.

Also, class based+ level based=not interested.

I wish the game the best of luck and prosperity in this current hit or miss (usually miss) MMO genre, but I know it is not going to a game for me.

Anyone else think bunny chick looks unhealthily skinny in the waist and overly huge in the breasteses?

Other than the bright colors that landscape looks extremely bland and boring. But of course you can put up a picture of a cute bunny chick with huge t**s and at least the guys will be interested right?

I'm really looking forward to this one. Good to see an original MMO that isn't the generic Swords and Sorcery. I've been following the dev's blogs, they're really pushing community voice for this game. Its good to see.

Signed up for the Beta yonks ago :D

Seeing alot of hate in these comments. This game looks very promising, and that's simply from a "looks" standpoint. Let alone all the great things I've heard about classes/professions/crafting/and mixing all that into the gameplay to the players benefit. I personally love the look and feel of this game, can't wait to see the UI, and hear more details about how the gameplay is different from other MMO's (Or just like our favorites, but upgraded )

Hey this actually looks pretty good.

Very easy on the eyes. Nice use of colours and all that.

It looks maybe a bit too much like WoW but I actually don't mind as long as it's a good game.

This is definitely something I'll keep an eye out for.

Tough with MMOs though. So many things could go wrong and ruin the whole experience.

Sci-Fi with generic classes, and most likely generic MMO hot-key spamming gameplay. Meh.

This game reminds me of the Jak And Daxter art style

@Dasim64 That bunny picture wasn't there when the video was first posted.

I disagree about the landscape looking bland and boring. I found it more pleasing than most games.

"I'd like it to be very clear that we are not making a sequel. I won't try to tell DAoC players that our new project will meet all their desires in this regard. I have always valued their trust, so while I want the people who played my past games to look at this one and get excited, I won't go around shouting that it's the "spiritual successor to the greatest RvR MMO evar!" "

fail comment is fail.....so much for DAOC 2 eh?

@andrecaseiro @brxricano Its technically classified as a fetish, which is only bad or funny if youre a virgin. In the case of Sly Cooper, I doubt it was intimate, you probably just related to that character more than others. Or it was intimate, in which case, so what lol. Its your world, who am I to poopoo on that. I said go fig simply because just that. I cant identify with it myself but again, so what. Better than wearing diapers right???......too much?
