    Sure looks interesting - now all that remains is for them to make it a working vision

    From the faq....now this makes me grin.

    Q: What are the PvP rules?
    A: There will be no restrictions whatsoever concerning PvP. It’s up to the players to create a society that punishes criminals. With the ability to knockout and drag fellow players into player constructed prisons and torture devices, punishment will definitely be a viable option.

    Can you see if this was being exploited somehow? Gawd how frustrating would that be!
    I can see the msg boards full of people tired of being knocked out dragged and stuck in prisons! lol

    You actually bought into that crap? The entire development team is one guy. One f'n guy! Well I think theres three now but come on. Did you read the first House of Commons chat? The ability to anal rape people? Use catapults with people and ****? And what about the Anti-Lag code? What bull ****. This game is just a couple guys with 3D Studio. If it ever is released with half the stuff that they want I will **** my own *** with a broom handle.

    hmmmm, after reading the FAQ, this is starting to sound like bull-shite. For instance:
    For you techies, eliminating the effects of latency is possible because there won’t be ‘rocket launcher’ type weapons where you are required to lead your target. Our latency elimination is NOT an empty promise.
    That sounds like it's written by a 15 year old that makes **** up just to sound smart.

    Thumbs up

    Ok, this is from one of IGN's interviews with the main guy of Dawn:
    We've developed our own targeting system that works perfectly in conjunction with client side prediction. Because there is no 'leading' your target we're able to eliminate the effects of reasonable latency completely.
    Ok, now that makes a little more sense, but that means ONLY MELEE weapons, or auto-targeting spells! That's pretty limited there.

    You don't do that when every game is released do you?

    Thumbs down

    Fwank, there are around 2 dozen people working on Dawn, Larry=Axehandler, Jeff=Jeff, Mario=Raz, Dario=706, and Chris whos SN i can not remember are just the only ones who deal with media.

    And for the other non believer, there are other ways that the net code reduces lag, but since combat is a big latency causer they have eliminated certain things from it that cuase lag.

    Believe me Dawn is real, I am an alpha tester, and my comp is less than avg and i dont lag AT ALL, so at worst when the final version comes out I will experiencing a little lag with the eye candy features and larger world and more players on line, but the things they are doing to reduce latency is amazing.

    Neverwinter Nights will crush all other MMORPGs. You will be able to build buildings and strongholds in NWN, provided you can pay for and defend them.

    Oh, man... guys

    Dawn = vaporware. Just think about it..

    They never, ever update, never have interviews, and have an extremely small workforce. And they say its 65,000 square miles compared to AC's 500? I'd for sure bet the farm Dawn is not ever going to make it. (feel free to prove me wrong about that part, I'm sure there are more knowledgable people)

    I dont hate the game or anything, that game would RULE.. however, too good to be true.

    I made another application that was totally bogus.

    "Who referred you to Dawn?": My dog

    "Why should we pick you as a beta tester?":I like man pee-pee (yes I put that)

    Then I get accepted into beta.. heh
