    Wow a free event this soon after the game comes out? Not a good sign for this game.

      Agreed, but I'm not surprised. I played it during the open beta and quickly cancelled my order. The forums were riddled with people with high-end machines who were getting 5-10fps. The game itself was pretty boring to me, the combat was horribly lame (you earn power points as you auto-attack so you spend a lot of time standing there auto attacking). The world itself felt bland and wasn't even pretty to look at.

        Gotta agree, I wish I would have played the beta a bit more to have realized how boring it was. Just not the game for me. I really wish they could have designed the game a bit more like the PnP rules and left it open. :)
