Playing this game for the first time back in February gave me a feeling no game had, since I first played WoW back in the day. It completely held my attention, and the hours would melt away into the late hours of the night. A circle of my friends all started making a village together and slowly progressed through the bosses. We had just reached the 'Plains' area and were starting acquire our black metal gear, when apparently over night everyone in the circle had a change of heart and lost interest in the game. Some of them claim that when the new update drops they will re-visit it.
I've got the itch to play now, but want to hold off until the update so the game feels more fresh and exciting once it's out.
Not sure what the whole point of this post is, other than to say I appreciate the hell out of this game, and eagerly await the great return to it when the new content drops. I've heard the time frame expected for release is only a vague 'Q3' right now, which means probably the end of September?
