    Kicked the alarm into the corner this morning after staying up way too late the last couple of nights, but downloading now and coffee in hand. May not be ready to kill stuff just yet but will be there to have a look around soon. Well done Arkadia, bet you all walking in your sleep now too ;)

    hmmm just been at the dentist waiting for him to check what's wrong with my gums and knowing that Arkadia is online... talking about TORTURE... well my gums should be alright now so at least I can play Arkadia sooner. My torture was a bit more intense though. :D

    This is fantastic! Huge gratz to you Dave and the rest of your team.

    You know how much I have longed for this day - it feels weird, that I can actually move to Arkadia when I come home from work today :D AND that I can try out the awesome crafting possibilities up there :)

    So much to see, so much to explore, so much loot to grab ... and the fact, that I have to tell Peter he doesn't get any diner today ! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

    Hi, good start!

    I'm sure you've thought about it but why hasn't there been any mention of Arkadia in www.mmorpg.com ?
    Your marketing/pr team might make some waves there.

    Cheers,
    Maska

    Sign o' life... ITS ONLINE!!!

    Time, methinks, for some words on Arkadia - now that it's really up and running.

    Let's start with the negatives. Need to get that out of the way.

    There is a plant of some sort that, on Calypso, moves out of the way when one runs through it. It does not, on Arkadia.

    For the plus side.

    Back when this virtual was Project Entropia, pre-Gold or whatucaretonameit, it had to depend on ONE thing, really, to make it - it had to be eminently playable. Making it the first one with a real currency would never have been enough by itself, not by far. And back then, one could not easily try to hide a bad online MMO behind superb graphics. Good thing MA did not try that, even better, they created a complex and amazingly well-functioning system - they made a "pac-man" success: The game was soo good, it did not need shocking gfx's to hook you in.

    Thats the way to go.

    Now, Arkadia is adding nicely to the HONEST concept of how to make great games. As in, make the game work properly, THEN add "fancy colors". And NOT the other way around.

    A small note right here; I hunt, mostly. So, this is from a hunters perspective, what I have to say here. That out of the way. Anyway.

    Been chatting with some fellow hunters and I believe we agree: Very good spawns, well defined spawns and spawn density very well balanced - did good 'ol Ozi maybe shoot a mob or two, maybe even 3? - down on Calypso? - well hellfire it's a good chance that he did, and got to 3, and then had to run a mile or 3 for the next 3 mobs of his choice down there, outside of a few of the better-kept LA's on Amethera (respect to people like Deathifier, Manuel, N8, et al).
    On Arkadia, we can spend more time shooting than running - finally!

    The whole "feel" of the Arkadia terrain is good - I have at this point loads yet to explore, but I have tested a fair few mobs in a fair few corners.

    There is a good balance of different mob's, and, nicely done, a whole "welcoming system" at some points for new entrants.
    And also on the plus-side for Arkadia... something not easy to explain in "rational" terms... Arkadia has the right "feel" - I for one was really really waiting for the launch, and blissfully I was not dissapointed.

    Enough licking someones behind ^^ yeah? Well, I found another plant that does not move, u guys get it togheter RIGHT now, bloody amateurs, make the fkn plants move! Priorities!

    - Love Arkadia, u did it guys ;)

    May we HoF, best to all, eras

    Lauch came and all was good. Arkadia was full of players globaling left and right.

    Today its a wasteland with a few tumbleweeds passing you by....

    Its just sad...

    Well right now is migration event on Caly (or it would be if the spawns weren't broken). I've seen quite a few arkadian regulars over here. So numbers are down even more. I'll be back next week in time for Meculus' SC event.
