    Really nice changes on the whole.

    As someone who is hesitant and not a fan of the single alignment change, do you guys plan to add in the faction system before launch to allow pvp during early game,when access to npc towns still actually matter?

    There are no guarantees when it comes to what we can get in before launch, but that will be a goal we'd like to achieve. Another goal will be making NPC cities really matter all the time, not just early game.

    Should always have a toggle on/off on things when u can so in case ppl dont like the look of the gui, they can go back, and maybe make it where they can have certain parts of the UI, not just old skin with resizing new feature but also the option bar, so i can choose to have the old option bar but keep everything else.

    Also seems like trade chat is still racial, figure it would go global aswell.

    Forced shadows without a huge drop in fps would be great! This was really nice in UW for stealth gameplay.

    Would like to be able to grab the corner of the gui menu and make shorten it, allowing me to have just a short list that i can scroll thru, or even resize the menu to be more square.

    That's impossible. Shadows always cause FPS drop, lol.

    Of course, I'm talking about an implementation that gives minimal fps drops across a variety of hardware. Stealth gameplay adds a huge bonus to the game.

    Well I was going to give a flawless victory on the patch until i seen that I have to RE GRIND stave making. Thanks I wanted to have something ELSE to grind on in beta. Would have been nice to adjust the level of alchemy to staff making so you didn't have to start ALL over again. So all that wood, ingots, gold and time just shot right out the window. I guess it's just beta right... who cares. Already going to need to re grind once wipe comes so why not.

    One criticism so far. The weight bar on your backpack is way too hard to see. Also, the weight bar is on the bottom of the backpack, but the weight number is on the top. It would be more intuitive to have all weight information together, on the bottom or top.

    Really wanna know when i can start seeing faction changes, so even though this 1 blue alignment system for all races is gonna stay default even after you complete a faction system, would like to know if it will be soon.

    cuz needless to say u gay. Racial Wars > opt-in factions which even if it was a good idea, due date is still unknown.

    Friend was complaining about dismounting and how you are standing up on ur mount when you do. We figured it would be better if you would dismount on one or the other side of the mount. Think if make it to where when you hit lean left/right on a mount you will quickly dismount left/right, and wont appear standing on top of ur mount

    Had a few arguments with ppl about racial wars being removed and I know I already stressed my stance on it but just wanna say again that blue blocking will be worse and blues will still play with reds, but will just be making it worse in situations where the other team wouldn't have blues because of their racial alignment.

    So a grp of blue/reds humans/elfs/dwarfs wouldn't have a problem fighting a grp of blue/red orks/wolfs because there was a better system. Now someone may be kicked out of their npc bindstone if they killed some humans that dont even use alfar npc cities to begin with. alfars could be playing in alfar lands getting kicked off of their alfar bindstone cuz they killed some blue humans in a human dungeon, that maybe even had a red dinosaur with them, so they can get the last hit/gank, but u have to lose alignment if u kill/gank. Especially if u say 2v4-5 a grp, ur 2 being blue humans, the other being 4 blues and 1 red, 2 orks, one alfar, one wolf being blue and 1 red human. it will not be worth it to win a 2v5. it would not be worth it to kill a one of them and lose a 2v5

    Yes blue blocking was an issue before, what is to be admitted now is that it will be worse and more likely to happen solely because the removal of racial wars (not temporary to help ensure a good faction system) was sold as a good idea that helps more problems than just the main reason why it was removed. Besides helping create a simple foundation in which could help build a more complex faction system ontop of, it is suppose to address in a good way population issues like trading (because there wouldn't be much in say alfar trade chat, they cant go to sang for trades) or help ppl play together that were old warring races, but there was nothing done to address these other issues, so if there was a better way to address certain issues, like better trade for unpopular races or better ways unfriendly races could play together, it was not attempted, maybe not even discussed, and now some of these issues are suppose to be solved to a good degree because there isn't multiple blue alignments you start off in.

    I could only see 1 argument to justify the lost of racial wars and that was to set a basic alignment system foundation to help with building a more complex one on top of it, but the fact that anything beyond what is the default alignment system now will be opt-in, undermines the concept of racial wars entirely and alot of ppl wont opt-in to losing everything that comes with the 1 blue alignment default system. The biggest perk not being the access to all npc cities, but the increased likelihood of the random pvp u may find will hold blues, so its safer unless ppl have to blue block for the reds. Blues roaming wont jump u at a spawn even if ur a sub human freakazoid that war decs everyone anyways because you will be blue to them. You can un-clan if u know warred blues will find u at a spawn, just leave an alt of smoeoen else to accept u back, warred blues will need a red to fight you, not another race, a red, and then you can run into blue towers.
