The game is massively pretty and immersive.

Still, i’ll wait the next big update, or the next one, to avoid burning.
I played too much already, at release.

Yeah! Finally! Let's restart the old server and time to go sailing off to the horizons!

Unfortunately the developers of this game seem oblivious to the biggest problem with their game. Animation & Movement. It's honestly terrible. A fluid movement and attacking system would drastically increase the quality. Sadly I don't think they'll ever really consider this and just continue to work on muh content.

Is this a common quibble? Can you give an example? I've never thought it's anything other than great

The engine could do with some optimisation but otherwise I can't fault the game.

As for the update, I will probably dive in.

Never had any problem with that either... The only thing negative about this game is the painfully slow update rhythm from the devs.
