I tried it last night. I wasn't really impressed by it but it also wasn't shabby. Graphics is decent and character movement is fluid. The setting felt befitting but can still use some work.

On my first try, I was expecting something similar to Age of Empires but no, it's more of a third person view pvp game. The matches are timed and whichever team has the most kills/points, at the end, wins the game.

What I liked about it, in the 30 minutes or so that I played, was that the game does require some skill. Character movements have to be timed properly so you can parry or strike efficiently as needed. I couldn't figure out how to perform normal hits but somehow found out how to perform my killer move which defers depending on the character in use. There are essentially two groups of characters to pick from which are infantry and archers. These are further split into different groups. For archers, there are close range and long range. For infantry, you have axe wielding and sword wielding. Some do have shields or spears as supplementary items.

On the other hand, I didn't like that there was no mini map to see where I was on the field. Character moves are also very limited and I couldn't take advantage of the setting as I would have loved to. All in all, it's not bad for a beta but it's also not great. Hopefully, they can get some serious feedback and improve on the game. It definitely has some potential.
