True the graphics and style don't look that good for combat. (tho environment is still pretty awesome imo). Tho Graphics and the style is something that gets more polished over time as the art team does not have much else to do.

However graphics, lore or combat does not concern me one bit with this game. I wouldn't even care if this game looked liked minecraft. And as history foretold graphics, lore and fancy animations DO NOT matter much when it comes to making great and popular games. Supreme and interesting game design ideas and game play is the ONLY thing that matters. (Fortnite cough cough).

And if you read about any of their game play systems. (Economy and trade, Caravans and naval raiding, governments types, guild wars and alliances, open world pvp, node development, open world PvP, class system, religion system etc etc). You would fall in love instantly with the game like I did. Unlike every other MMO this game is doing something very different. It's bringing in innovation in game-play instead of just copying WoW and changing graphics and animations like every other MMO.

This is the only MMO every I think I as a player MATTER and my actions affect the world. Pretty much every other MMO is just a theme park with a few of "mini games" and cookie cutter stuff. And as soon as they stop adding new mini games the theme park is a graveyard within a year. (Warlords of Draneor). Ashes on the other hand is a game run by players. Devs could leave this game for years and no one will get bored cause the player interactions and the content the players bring to the world where as other MMOs I wouldn't even care if there was other players in it or not.

I would not worry much at all about graphics, lore, animations and other fancy stuff. They can be easily improved over time and are not what makes a game great. Game-play and game design does and Ashes right now is looking far superior to any game I've looked at.

Also No pay2win like BDO. Thank god.

Been silently watching the game progress so far and I have to admit it looks interesting - artstyle makes me think "Aion meets Mount and Blade" if that makes sense. Might give it a try.

First win solo in squads! Intercontinental ping couldn't hold me back. 5-6 kills tho got lucky at the end with last two squads fighting each other and me hitting them.

TBH not a big fan of battle royale but this is quite fun. The mechanics are unique and the game looks good. Just needs a bunch of optimization and better/smoother animations. Tho I assume the latter is saved for MMO.
