Well, I gave this game a shot for five months. I must say that the
first impressions were excellent and right in line with the positives
of another review further down this list that I read. Nice room descs,
nice quests, nice mob scripting etc.
Sadly, the review also lists many negative shortcomings of Xyllomer
and although I decided to overlook them and give the game the benefit
of the doubt, MOST of these shortcomings soon revealed themselves as
all too real... a feeling of emptiness in the world, boring static
roleplaying, a feeling that there was a lot of OOC stuff going on that
I wasn't privy to. I could actually deal pretty well with all of
But the single thing that broke the game for me was the guild joining
system (or complete lack thereof). It is sad and ridiculous that I
have been playing FOR FIVE MONTHS straight and still my character HAS
NO CLASS. Even more so that there are people in there who have been
playing FOR YEARS ON END and are still waiting to get into a guild or
who have just given up entirely and settle for playing just as the
generic beginning adventurer class, forever.
I have no idea what goes on with the guilds, or what is the matter
with the system, or who's supposed to be in charge and isn't doing
their job, but there is definitely something seriously wrong going on
Many people are willing to stick it out or discuss it in the forums
but I have not and will do neither. A game should be enjoyable as is
without needing to get into a big fight with the admin over changes
that need to be made... so I gave the whole thing a chance and nothing
happened, so I move on to another game.
