Needless to say I was there again as was hubby. This time we were also joined by muemeyyiz
and we had a blast together.
It was Mue's first playtime and the first thing he was blown away by was how quickly me and hubby appeared next to him via the fast travel system. Three minutes after logging in we were already happily playing and in the middle of a huge event chasing a wild bull around the human starter zone.
The next thing he was suprised about was how much he died and we didn't. After some quick explaining about how dodging really matters in this game his dying got a lot less and when he hit level 7 and got weapon swapping and bought himself two pistols it pretty much stopped.
The problems with overflow servers and parties getting split up were gone with this beta. Turns out playing with a party of three was even more fun than soloing or duoing.
I have to admit me and Mue pretty much played all of sunday with hardly any break. There was always one more thing we wanted to look at or one more event we quickly wanted to join or just one more whatever.
Time just flies in this game and it's all about the fun of playing, not about reaching some leveling goal. I went from level 18 to 23 without really noticing or paying attention to it. I just checked before I logged out to be able to report on it.
As the previous beta events, this again leaves me wanting MOAR!
And now some pretty screens:
