ahhh tried to get back into it.... built 4 things then closed the screen and said F it. find it waaaayy to boring. 1 question though that might make me play, can you attack other peoples main settlements now? or just in the last age.

Spaceone, how will you be able to determine if someone who puts in that code just didn't Google for it and use it?

Edit: http://www.google.co...realms vip code

Hey chaps,

The code you have is just for SDC guys. There are a number of codes that we will release to various parties (as you would expect) but I was reliably informed that this one is just for you. Now, by the time of the launch I have no doubt that codes will be flying around left right and centre, as is always the case, but this one should be just yours.

At the end of the day we wanted to make sure we spoke to you about it, gave you your own code and then hoped that you would come along and play! Who needs Skyrim anyway (I can't play as my new pc has to go back to the company due to not switching on after I unpacked it)? :verymad:

For those who have played a previous version - A lot has changed. The game now doesn't end. You may finish the game first but that won't necessarily mean you will be number 1 on the leaderboard. Loads of balancing has taken place...oh so much stuff. Come along and play! :D


Ohhhh 8 Relms is HTML 5?

I don't think so, pretty sure its just HTML4 and javascript.

Also, I got an email code of Andromeda. So I was wrong... however, if this code is worse that the email, twitter, and facebook ones, I still don't see the point.

The beta keys aren't there to limit intake of player numbers, that'd be silly as they want an optimum number for great gameplay. My guess is that it's probably a clever ploy and marketing tool to find out where the 8Realms players are coming from. They'll then use that data to see how they can extend their reach, but later decide to stay completely silent and continue their BS silence strategy.

The views below are those expressed by myself and not Stellar Dawn Central.

The problem with that is if someone gets 4 different codes from various sources, they will definitely use the one that they either see first or has the best bonus on the side. If they would just ask then I bet it would be better "survey" wise.

I tried it out and don't like it. My main issue is that the game greatly limits my freedom. It treats me like a baby. There should be an open area for building stuff, and I should be able to place what I want any where within the space. I shouldn't have to build in a strict 1, 2, 3 order. Let me decide what I want to build next. No annoying guy popups telling me what I have to do next. Make him only appear upon clicking a help button. The "quest" system should come into play later in the game. Building a barn or a farm is not an achievement. Tell me what the object of the game is upfront --Why should I keep playing this?

That is just the tutorial part of the game XD

Once you get through to like 64% culture he leaves you alone.

I completely forgot about 8Realms, that's how disinterested I am. I wonder how long it'll be before it's full of inactives like WOL.

♥ ♥ ♥ What's the story behind 8realms? Upon the release of War of Legends, people noticed it was created by Jagex Publishing. The Jagex Publishing logo was then said to mean someone or some company paid Jagex to make the game for them, or some person or company made the game and paid Jagex to endorse it. 8realms is a copy off War of Legends, but there isn't a Jagex Publishing logo. It says Jagex Games Studio. What happened?! I wonder if the WoL buyer feels cheated due to 8realm's release. ♥ ♥ ♥
