I've come and gone from this game time and time again. I could sit here and give a review about all of the terrible things that I've witnessed or experienced first hand but I don't believe I would have enough characters (even with 10,000) to write it all down.
Simply enough I would never recommend this game to anyone.
Not to roleplayers, not to casual Mudders, not to hardcore pvpers. Not to anyone who doesn't have either an addiction to playing with incredibly unstable social circles that will and have targeted not only their players oocly but the players families as well.
With the recent reboot the game allows the players a hint of anonymity that they need. Though that has been short lived as well with the active cliques who speak in discord/Skype and actively target others for things as simple as gender, grammar, age, sexuality etc.
Mechanically the game is stale, I would say it is pay to win but you really can't win in a game where you could easily lose hundred of dollars worth of materials ic because of staff interference, bugs, other players who aren't happy with you that evening.
No staff won't replace your things.
They have strict rules against things such as Rape. I would love to sing praises in their honor for this. If it was enforced. It is alive and well in game as it always has and often goes into blackmailing ooc. Staff has been notified repeatedly about this and often it takes the loudest (and most financially invested) players to get then to react.
Want to join that cool guild? Have sex with my character.
No? Log off or I will spam you with sexual emotes that you haven't consented to. Block me? Jokes on you now I can pk you. Teehee.
This truly is just the tip of the iceburg.
The mechanics are shallow, the world is small and lacks immersion, most things that are in the game don't work. Staff is abusive and sadly the players are easily ten times worse than any power hungry zealot administration.
This game is for the sick, a cycle of abuse between players who feel they need to 'get then before they get me.'
I gave it another try and was sincerely sad when I saw the same cliques breaking the same rules and bullying the same lower level players.
If you're still wondering, I would never recommend this to anyone unless you are bored and needing a story on how ridiculous some people can be on the internet. If you're looking for entertainment in the mental instability of other human beings behind a screen, New worlds ateraan is the best game for you.
