More zero-risk, instanced-content, geared towards casual players! That's exactly what I wanted when I purchased this game! *Vomit* READ MORE SHOW LESS

ability to move island access point is where?

I would really like the arena to be a place where people can loose or damage their gear and even a silver investment. And it would be fun to be able to observe battles and even bet /gamble on the outcome of the battle :). READ MORE SHOW LESS

AKARazorback has made some good point. The new guild features were supposed to be released right after game release. We are still waiting. Guild features need to be top of the list priorities. READ MORE SHOW LESS

Great patch. Some much needed things. We will see how the new mount changes impacts solo gathering/ganking.

I disagree with others saying arena will ruin the game. I think this is going to bring in MANY more players. For me personally, the arena-style PVP was the one thing missing, now we have it. HUGE kudos for this. However I would LOVE to see a 3v3 version of Arena as well. Also mandatory 1 healer 2("DPS/tank"). I dislike 2v2 as that favors some classes over others, same with 1v1. The game was meant to be balanced around 5v5 play - but I do think 3v3 is enough of the "core" experience to still be true to the game... So please consider that in the future. READ MORE SHOW LESS

thanks for the update. Some exciting stuff. Please continue to bring more content. I read some of the comments below and I do agree with some.

I am not one to complain without making a suggestion on how to fix the issue.

For the UI. the new clean look you showed looks interesting. Please do give friends list more options on invites. I'm sure that is on your list of things to do. great.

Arena sounds like a lot of fun. But 5v5 should not be the only option. Please give us the others as well 2v2, 3v3. more options, please.

everything else sounds exciting. I am still enjoying the game. Don't stop the updates. READ MORE SHOW LESS

5v5 Arena, I like it, so it is really meant for people to practice their GvG 5v5 before committing to them.

Looking forward to SmartCast and the Additional Improvements. READ MORE SHOW LESS

Why is arena just another 5v5 format, you really missed an opportunity to help people who have less then 5 people they play with. I'm sure it isn't hard to have 2v2 or 3v3 aswell, sucks to see and It would seem its just par for the course for SBI I guess. READ MORE SHOW LESS

the only 2 things here that were needed are smartcasting and mob health bars, expeditions and arenas are going to hurt the game more than anything. there is already too many people sitting in caerleon in shiny gear they would never risk. READ MORE SHOW LESS

In a game that has been in development for so long, that is marketed as being "all about player driven"-everything, I have to say I am very surprised to see such limited options to actually drive the social aspect of your game and sell it to the rest of my community members, who do not yet own your game.

Dedicate some development time to developing the SOCIAL aspect of your game and give community leaders the guild management tools they need... so they in turn can help you keep players to drive your "player driven" world.

Let's start with allowing guild leaders to set up guild ranks themselves, including permissions and tax rates for each rank... instead of having to use preset ranks with preset permissions.

This will give much more control for guild leaders to create an environment that the rest of the players want to stick around for. Do not ignore your community leaders!

Another aspect that surprises me in a "social" game is when I enter an expedition with a pre-made group, why does that premade group get disbanded after the expedition?

And because I can not invite people into a party directly from the guild screen or friendslist, this highly annoying.

While we're on the subject, if I create a 5 man expedition run, do not tell me or my team what we can and can not start the expedition as. Maybe we want to go in with 5 healers - it makes no sense, but we are a premade. No one else will suffer.

Social game, yet lacking social tools.

Get your priorities straight!

Still looking forward to the update... READ MORE SHOW LESS

New stuff is great, but game is still in a HUGE lack of content. You need to add waaaay more than just arena and treasure sites to keep game alive READ MORE SHOW LESS
