The reason for not recommending this game is simple, the devs and the company behind. Let me elaborate around it.
I originally bought this game on release for a set price and I subbed for a few months liking the game, listening to TotalBiscuits recommendation at the time. The game is a very different approach to the MMO we knew at the time. Brawling, leveling, discovering and exploring the cities and solo dungeons within it. I leveled my character to 50, going nature/rifles. But didn't find the armors at the end-game that appealing and dropped the game cuz there wasn't anything to do.
But in 2012 the game accounts got migrated to ProSiebenSat, and we all had to migrate our accounts else all be lost, they sent me an email about this and so I did it. Still when I downloaded the game from Steam, it would still try to connect to the old account servers, at least I couldn't get it to work right out of the Steam-box.
But I still played it from time to time, made some alts and confirmed that the game was still good. I bought a few DLCs, like the base and stuff, saw that the game had done some progress since launch.
So I got my new computer and downloaded this game once again, through Steam. And when I tried logging on I got a message that said my account was banned. So I sent them a ticket about it, asking for my real account name(as it became differently at the time of ProSiebenSat migrating). But the answer I got was horrifying.
They told me there was another migration FROM ProSiebenSat and back in 2014. And that the last chance of this migration was 31st of January 2015.
I NEVER GOT AN EMAIL ABOUT THIS!
(TLDR;) The results are,
I don't have ANY characters, but they unbanned the account, and told me I had to start over.
I don't have ANY DLCs, that I paid real money for.
They didn't alert me for the migration(I have searched and searched for those emails they claim to have sent me).
They suck as a company, (in b4 they're the next to take the throne after EA for worst company NA?)
I thought I'd still give the game a chance. I logged in, made a Catwoman-like character.
The results were STILL HORRIBLE:
1. She doesn't come with a whip, or any whip attacks(no the taser doesn't count).
2. She came with non-high heels(I had to choose my own boots to get the right look).
3. She's standing like she's a monster(beast-like atttitude), even the one in-game doesn't stand like that!).
So I'm leaving this game for good. UNINSTALLED, I'm over it..
And I'm gonna be sceptical to all games released by Daybreak(old SOE) in the future, as they cannot be trusted, even with the migration they failed badly. First impressions are quite bad!
