what i think about the game overall so far it is good even if you have to grind out lvls at times as for the pvp getting in is the hardest part of anything in the game kind of wish there was a description on what does what like eva void ETC when you hoover over it kind of wish you could dance everywhere not just the club that would be cool as for everything else im ok with it for now just waiting to see how the end lvls plays out

Kind of wish the sent classes looked better dont really like the skin so i was hoping it could have a full body armor like Shadow walker at least then it looks better to me somewhat like some lolis have in animes that way its kind of a win win for people

Positive
From what I can tell, Scarlet Blade provides a strong and decent combat to the game. The animation and sound asset when fighting is superb. The skills and such are quite inuitive and quite self explanatory, so description are done well. The PvP Arena is quite well done as well, Janus is a free for all, while Turnpike gives the impression of an MOBA fight without the creeps. Transportation via bike and tele chip are quite the standard, and the quest are quite well done. The item drop rates are ok as well, however it should be made that bosses will drop something everytime, but the randomness of item can be increased. Ah another good thing, the localization, my god you translators at Aeria the game is quite well translated and released an alpha release that quickly. Although there are few quirks here and there and the couple korean words still present, the game is well translated, except for Ralph in the Buzzard Camp, he still has his Korean VA.

Negative
However, now onto the bad parts in my opinion. First off, although I praised the rapid translation, I must also argue against it, the amount of times where quest label monsters incorrectly is staggering, although annoying not detrimental to the overall game. The game's enchanting system needs several work, it should provide a viable feedback on what the chance of success or failure, as well as the expense of upgrading may be too high. The quest can get quite repeative, unsure how the dailies and repeats will be if it is the same exact thing multiple time, i.e the repeat is the same quest over and over, rather than a random shuffle or quests. The character stats also need much more help, what does VOID or CH-ACC mean? Another thing that may need to be fixed is the optimization and the difference in quality. The difference at least to me, High and Best seem somewhat actually the same. Dungeons, the difficulty between here and there may not be balanced, I don't know it may simply be biased, but as a Shadow Walker, the BitterCore/Jupiter Core dungeon was hard for me at lv26, and only now until lv28 was I able to complete it. More negative sadly, the lack of combat feedback, specfically the range. During battle not being able to find the maximum range of a skill, thus walking into an enemy is somewhat annoying, but can be fixed if the radius of the skill is displayed.

Specific Issues
Currently PvP as a Shadow Walker is somewhat annoying, specfically our escape move. Although yes we have an invisability skill, our flashstep/jumpjet is fairly underpowered for its purpose. Aiming out of range will have your character stand still and walk toward to the minimum range. Not only does PvP require precise actions where the jumpjet may be too far out, the cast time on it is not as instant, as being hit once will cancel the animation no matter what.

Overall the game itself is amazing, stable and fun. With a few klinks here and there, the game will provide several hours of gameplay in one sitting. The game's difficulty cannot be discern as the penalty are not in effect at the moment. Dungeons and the such are great fun, although even more challenging then what they are with a party. The drops are somewhat fair, but very much random if a monster will drop or not. But in the end, the game itself is very fun for a old and tried hotkey based MMO

I wasn't one of the lucky ppl who got a chance to play this amazing game, but, for what i could learn about this game, it looks very polished, and original. Iam a veteran online games player and i never tried or seen any game like this. I can't wait to finnally try it after so many years of waiting...
I love the idea of having a whip as a weapon. Way too cool and sexy. Razz
Hope to see you all ingame.
Good luck guys.

Definetly Excited!

Haven't played the Alpha, but I'm definitely psyched about this game! This might be the very first MMO I've ever tried. Definitely love the character and sci-fi costume designs, and a kick-butt all female cast is a great idea! Cant wait for the official U.S release! <3 <3 <3

i've saw scrshots and heard from friends who managed to get selected for alpha testing, the thing i'm really looking forward to is battle gameplay, i hope the battle actions/movements are fluid and exciting like a action game should be.

Sadly have no played yet, but am most looking forward to healing. Underrated & under appreciated role in games, we enjoy it. Looking forward to learning that system in, out & hexagonal to benefit the royal guards (boo, free knights).

Also the pretty characters. Always helps. Will most likely spend far, far too long in character creation. From he options I've seen it seems fairly detailed - plus the colors are nice & vibrant ^^ - so it seems like it should in theory be easy to make a semi-unique looking character, although without actually playing I can't give a massive yea/nay to either side as far as that goes.

The negative feedback I have has mainly do do with the censoring of the sentinel. That it needed to be censored is understandable, I just hope Liveplex takes the feedback from the forums into account when it comes to doing a final version and tries something a little less intrusive.

That aside, the colors are still nice and bright, the animations seem crisp (again, only seen via 2nd hand footage) & overall the game seems fairly polished. I hear the level 40+ zone gets even more detailed, so I'll be looking forward to seeing footage (or hopefully playing in) that zone when it's jammed in.

Plus there's mechs, always a win :3

EDIT: Here's more feedback - get your act together. When you give a time/date, stick to it. You can't simply say 'Monday' 'Wednesday' or 'Friday' then have that day pass, then another, then into the next and not give any sort of response/reason. You say this is Aerias 'biggest release' ever, and pull crap like that, not once but twice. It's very much not good PR (as 4k+ people now know).

Hype Increasing for a Future Player

I've not played the game yet, but I do like how the game is going and evolving. The story seems engaging and the artwork is amazing. I like how the story ends up with a last resort situation where even the last resort divides itself into two factions: the Royal Guard and the Free Knights. It really shows that the beginning is more dire given that the Ark is an all-or-nothing shot to get rid of the Narak. Also that the allies are very rare means that even into late game, it seems like you won't see many ally NPCs so survivability is even more important. I'm looking forward to playing the classes, but in particular playing the Medic, Shadow Walker and Whipper.
