Yeah. Since the open beta, the servers have been overloaded. I think it's interesting.. but the most interesting thing about it is that once you reach a certain level (I believe 20) it doesn't really matter what "class" your character is, you pick what is basically your 'profession.'

A trader, who goes between cities delivering goods, making money..
A thief, trying to steal/kill other player traders..
A hunter, trying to steal/kill other player thieves..

My char was like level 16 when I stopped playing. Unfortunate, because I wanted to see how trading works. However, the game's translation is terrible, it's difficult to log into, and the game really isn't significantly different from popular MMORPGs, battle-wise. A lot of emphasis on temporarily powering up your character with magic, so you do more melee.

The graphics are somewhat impressive at times, however the most interesting thing about it is the 'eastern' atmosphere as opposed to the traditional fantasy setting. SRO uses the 'EverQuest model' for mobs--they wander around certain areas, and you wait for spawns. It makes for annoying times when you're hunting a specific mob and there are 50 people doing the same thing, rushing to get the kill.

SRO is an interesting play, but it doesn't have lasting power, in my opinion.

meh i dont think ne thing will compare to how ROSE was... maplestory (even though it was 2d) was a fun free mmorpg too, this game after looking into it just looks the same, but it doesnt have the same appeal, maybe i like the anime look, yea i REALLY liked the anime look heh

I used to play, I left after a while. The quests were ridiculous. You had to walk all the way across town like 60 times before you actually did something o_o

Anyways, I should try that game again.

I used to play it.. I got to level 19 before I stopped. Its kinda fun, better than PrinstonTales in my opinion. However, logging in is quite a pain. You get to ride horses, there's a berserk mode, which is similar to Goku's Kaioken, where you turn red (your head turns into some demon's head) and you get increase speed and strength. Quite a lot of skills to learn as well. You should try it if you're bored, might even get addicted for a time being. ;)

-Off Topic-
CJ!! O_O Haven't talked to you in ages? You don't answer my PMs.. >_> Anyway you still got AIM dude? o.o
