Just noticed this is actually "releasing" fairly soon.  Is the consensus it's dead in the water?

yeah, the beta was pretty bad - I couldnt see any progress from 5 years ago or whenever it was made the first time.

A shame, since the setting is pretty cool

The revamped game is simply too cool and full of newly found depth for our shallow minds to comprehend.  smoke

My feeling was the game needed serious revamping, not just a few coats of paint and a few short closed/open beta testing sessions as what seems to have taken place. I mean, it's like trying to fix a mold-ridden, termite infested house with paint and Elmer's Glue. It seemed like a lot more work  was going to be necessary to bring it up to code, so to speak.

Is moving into open beta (even if the train probably is nowhere near ready to leave the station  paranoid)

IGN "Prime" has an interesting drawing of sorts:

Free 3-Day Trials now offered... if you dare!  paranoid

I must say, if you told me Gods & Heroes, and Hellgate: London would be alive in Summer 2011, I would've told you to stop drinking so much malt liquor.  The drink that never ends.

They're now offering longer 7-day free trials:

So, even if it's a mess, that seems like at least long enough to see just how big a mess it is, right?  icon_smile

otoh, when the forum already has thread titles like "how to save Gods & Heroes" already, that's not a good sign...  paranoid

So, Blackjack, how is it? I'm assuming you've played it, as you're still posting in this thread. biggrin

I have posted in threads of many games I have not touched.  smirk

No, the one guy here who tried it in the recent beta came away aghast. And it's got to be the lowest profile launch ever.

I'm guessing that was me!! ME! Why aren't I famous enough to warrent the use of my name?! huh? HUH!? ;-)

Anyways, game was a mess, dated, and a lot less than it should have been, with the rather big team they said they had on it (16 guys).

There wasnt any practical difference between the current iteration, and the last time the game was being made.

I don't wish to encourage you, Razgon.  biggrin I would like some idea of whether it's getting gradually improved after launch or if this really seems a case of a non-MMO dev getting in way over their heads.

But, I dunno, as long as the client won't hose my computer, I'm willing to give the trial a shot and report on how things are shaping up... or not.

What's Lockdown?  icon_smile
