Craft of Gods has actually been running for quite some time, about six months. Since then I've been getting, I estimate, a million emails a day about it.
Exaggeration? Possibly, but the number of press releases I have seen about it make me feel I should at least mention it, even though I've never played the thing. As a rule I've avoided Mo-More-Pa-Ga's for the sole reason that I have little free time as it is and the chance of getting sucked into one of these fantasy based adventure doo-dids makes me nervous. And I'm far too cheap to pay any kind of additional monthly subscription to any game!
This youtube representation of the combat is probably a good indication of whether or not it's your thing:
So from that, to me, it looks like fairly standard fare for a game of it's genre. It's obviously hard to judge a game by it's videos and screenshots alone but as much as I'd like to say it looks good, well the models don't look too bad but I wasn't much impressed by the terrain or foliage.
I doubt it will make much of a dent in the WoW community but I'm sure it will attract a hardcore group of fans. Whether this will be enough to keep the servers running or not, only time can tell! There's certainly enough competition out there with plenty of variation to choose from with WoW, Warhammer Online, Guid Wars 2 is on it's way I believe, Global Agenda (sci Fi mmorpg) and then you have the indie titles like Dead-Frontier which is the closest I've been to getting drawn into such a game.
All in all if you're into these kinds of games why not give it a go. If you're quick you'll be able to sign up to the beta program before the full game gets released by the end of the month. And if you do, let me know what you think - even if it's just a one word recommendation/criticism! (nice words though please...)
