Not quite to my "must pay me to play it" threshold.

Anyone play this that can comment on the state of the game? I bete'd it and enjoyed it but never played it at retail. Kind of curious to try it again but don't want to waste my time since haven't heard exactly great things about it.

It's a dollar for the game and a free month. Really, it's worth that. It's not bad. It's just... it needed to have no levels. There's not even a big grind anymore. The levels just feel weird tacked on like they are.

Well one hour left on the sale. What the hell, I'll buy it, we'll see if I play it though.

POTBS has just announced that their expansion has been delayed. Probably not the best news to show to a group of returning / new players.

Was actually announced on Monday, that they were delaying the Free Expansion, but all current players are able to log onto test and play the expansion. I got a beta invite early on in development, the month after my subscription was closed, and wasn't able to be in the beta unless the account was active.

The expansion being delayed isn't promising at all, especially because there wasn't really anything in there to really wow people and bring them back to the game anyway... Port governing and voting systems? A new Ground Combat model (like version 4?)? New overpowered skills and skill revamps? The same grinding, level based, forced imbalanced PvP, with a broken economy and dwindling populations.

Love the ship combat, especially for port battles and 6 v 6, but honestly I think the ship is already sunk (see the thread I started for details).
