Discussion of the game from a player's perspective

  1. Played my first game!

    A lot of fun!

    I have to get ready and leave for work, but I was impressed!

    I'm a little unclear on how to activate the Mage Hero's special ability. I seemed to have enough resources, but I couldn't get it to attack or target. On the other hand I might not have understood what the ability was supposed to do. On the other hand: I had no time to thoughtfully study it either. It could be "Operator Error", lol. So I have held off reporting it as a bug until ...

  4. Countdown to the beginning of a new Era!

    Good morning faithful readers (and possible detractors),

    I decided after yesterday's 'stuff' that I would start afresh with a positive post.

    Today is the 31st! By all accounts the Closed Beta begins tomorrow. Details have not come from Kyle yet, but hopefully they'll come later today.

    I'm surprised how excited I am to see and play the game. This is like the day before your birthday, especially when you suspect that someone is going to throw you a surprise ...

  5. Game Design and the Lowest Common Denominator

    I'm probably going to regret this, because there's an old adage that says "never post after midnight". That saying exists because of the propensity to say something unpleasant that you'll regret in the morning.

    On the other hand, I said I would chronicle my Shadow Era Beta experience. I just didn't expect to feel so irritated so early, and before the Beta actually began.

    And I know full well that I am over-reacting. It's just that I've come away from a debate ...
