The people who hate this game, really hate this game. Only because they have at one point really enjoyed it but been soured by gms, bugs or other ingame events. The bottom line is that if you love sandbox, open pvp and full loot - you should try it for sure.
I played the game for 2+ years and had 7 accounts... ALL HAVE BEEN CANCELED! Game still in Beta after all this time, but that would be fine IF the Mods were not corrupt, there was a system in place to handle hacking and duping, territory control meant something, and there was any form of content at all.
DO NOT SUPPORT THIS GAME. The goal here is to have them shut it down and revamp the game for re-release MO 2.
The graphics on this game are good. On full 1080P it's completely amazing on my GTX670. The feeling you get from working together as a team in a group is honestly a good feeling, that you sometimes cannot find in any other game. This game is simply the MOST sandboxiest that I've seen for quite some time aside from SpreadSheed (EVE) Online.
But with all that said, the game is RIDDLED with bugs.
*A below average UI that doesn't respond quickly (Had to be done because dupes were done that way.)
*Programming is sub-par, one thing gets changed, 20 others get messed up. (Original DEV's were bad)
*Promises that were made that weren't really kept.
*PvP is laggy, and complicated, there are too many nuances that must be learned, such as prediction, unbalanced attack moves, etc.
*Certain GM's actually still play the game, and as such have a personal stake in some fights. And are sometimes seemingly corrupt.
*Very silly things will get you stuck, having to resort to getting a GM involved, and sometimes the wait is as much as 2 hours at late night.
Overall I would give it a shot on a free account, and play it for approximately 3 weeks before giving it up. It's not worth the money as it is, but if you're willing to deal with all the above, you really will have a fun time, depending on the guild you join, and how you play.
At first its nice, deep crafting system, first-person pvp, nice land scape, then you loose time and materials over stuff that doesnt matter or shoudnt be in a game unstable like Mortal Online,lag switching, cheating, corrupt gm's who stimulate, even provoke such behaviour.
The Combat system is made with a prediction system so Mortal online will not look the same on your oponents screen as on yours.
The A.I. is improved but still lacks that certain something you want in a open world. shooting trough walls, getting invisible, lost of loot and loot lag.
In the end all 'n all MO is a great game to start with but at some point where it could be a great game, it slaps you in the face and tells you to get real.
If you like **** games with bugs, shady gms and exploits, then Mortal Online is for you. If you like a game where GMs scout for players, command kill players for kicks and berate their subscribers, then Mortal Online is for you!
The Developer team is clueless. The GMs are corrupt and in the pockets of select players. The user interface is terrible. The gameplay is almost non existant and the whole games turns into a giant pvp arena where you never even find your enemies. The dupes and hacks being abused are getting worse every single day. They offer Free 2 Play but you couldnt actually "play" the game with the restrictions they place on your account. Dont waste your time and money on this piece of garbage. Nuff said?
This game is severly broke. Do not trust the people giving it a high score. They are either new or SV employies. The GM team is corrupt and the developers incompitent.
Please check you tube videos before purchasing this game. Mostly MO dupes, MO hacks, Corrupt GMs. It will give a better view of this game and save you some money.
