It looks nice, screens look pretty cool, and it's a pirate MMO ( I think )

I got my key yesterday and just finished installing. The servers go live for the stress test on Thursday. So it's actually not even beta yet, just a stress test.

Let's play on Thursday... I don't have class till 1:30 on Friday so I can stay up late being a pirate.

P.S. I'm now downloading the SupCom: Forged Alliance beta. All you silly heads who think an FP sub is a rip off are just silly.

Yarrr, I downloaded last night. Will install tonight and have it ready for the stress test on Thursday.

Looks interesting, that's for sure.

Bah another day to wait.

Oh well. I was looking at some more screens and I really hope this doesn't suck. I want to be a piraat!

Should be worth a couple of hours of play at the very least, and heck I'll try anything once. ;)

Yeah I was very disappointed in Bounty Bay online... You couldn't even be a pirate :(

A pirate mmo might actually be fun. Especially if the beta is 4gb+ :eek:

Yarrrr!

This looks like the first MMO since the canceled Sovereign to get my attention.

Any ideas on if the beta people can keep their chars when the game goes live?

It's not my kind of game to be honest, but I've only played a little amount of time, so I may change my opinion. I'd be playing right now but I can't connect to the server.

Do you use the download manager? always find that slower than just selecting a region link

Nope. I use the region link.

Edit: Nice. A broken ZIP file. I'll wait until morning to try to other methods.

I've made a character twice, then it crashed both times. Oh well, time for bed and I'll try again tomorrow. :)

Game sucks imo. It is a totally different game then what they started out to make. Get a tin of Pirates card/table game, grab a few friends that play... and have more fun.

I got a char made and ran around for a bit, but it was about 5am then so I had to go to bed :(

I'll prolly get some more time in on it tonight. I made a totally sweet looking pirate.

I had an awesome pimp pirate made, but then it crashed. It took me so long to get him just right too. :(

I should be on late tonight, I'll look out for you.
