I *almost* deleted the email then I realized its not spam.

uh oh, please tell me it's not some obscurely named email......

No, I was just mass deleting a bunch of Amazon suggestions and Facebook notifications. I almost missed it in the mess.

If anyone ever gets a chance to be creative and actually stack legos into something of their own choosing then let me know and I'll spend more time on it.

I was expecting a Minecraft MMO and got another WoW formula rehash. How sad.

In this initial small roll-out for the beta you can do brick by brick building on your property if you get to the end of AG.  You will most definitely get to do more advanced things.  Trust me on that.  slywink 

For the most part, though, don't expect to build anything you want anywhere you want, as there are just too many griefing issues with that.

I'm wishing they had a better beta tester forum. I have a problem and all the posts on the forum have to be moderated. My question has been sitting unposted since last night.

Its because its kids friendly - the same with the chat in-game.

I kinda like it, since this is something the very young may be playing.

Yeah I cant figure out how to sell things and I think I "lost" my rocket for travel.  I tried to travel to "my property" at the end of the avant area and its now gone.  Had I thought about it I would have built all three rocket types before traveling to avant.  I have 2 pieces of 2 different rockets and would have to grind up 5000 tokens to buy the missing piece.

There is a vendor at the top of the mountain where the rocket launch sites are.  She sells rocket pieces for 5000 coins per, I have a little over 2000 coins from dong the missions and smashing things.  I dont know how to sell anything and i have a bunch of stuff I coud get rid of.

I looked at their forums and the selling is an issue with multiple people - can only assume it was a bug. which brings me to my next issue, how the heck do you bug something? I couldn't get chat to work at all (kept getting a "we don't allow that kind of language" response to everything I typed.

On a side note, I'm impressed with what I did play & see.  The game is pretty simplistic - enough so that I'm not sure it will grab an adult audience, however it is interesting enough that those who have kids will be able to play with them and enjoy the game.

You can submit bugs by clicking on the '?' help button in the bottom right and then the '!' icon in there for reporting issues.  Alternatively you can just do a '/bug blah blah blah' from the chat box but using the help menu allows you to select a category for bug/suggestion/etc. 

If all goes right there should be a new build out for the next session on Thursday, and that should fix several of the bugs, UI issues and some of the lag problems seen in the battle area of AG.  It should will also unlock the next area or two for people to explore.

That's pretty long for early access (which more typically is 3 days to play before the non-pre order crowd gets to play). It reads more like the traditional "Two week open beta that doesn't give us time to fix anything you find seriously wrong in open beta but DOES give us a chance to goad you into a $300 lifetime subscription GIVEUSYOURMONEY YEAAAAAH!" offer... *Fist Shaking*

Hopefully so.  I would certainly love one.  I was in the Lego Store in Mall of America and they had some advertising around the game and it definitely piqued my interest.
