"We’re excited to welcome all of you to the world of Allods! Allods is created by Astrum Nival, developer of Heroes of Might & Magic V and Rage of Mages, spanning a series of games over 11 years. With a budget of $12 million and 4 years spent in development, Allods sets a milestone in the world of MMORPGs."
Atm, global version of this game waits to get in CB (no date yet but "soon" xD) but russian OB (with russian client ofc) is on from 15th 10 2009 if you want to check it before it goes global.
I did that already, downloaded that russian client, tried it a lil and it (IMO) looks/feels rly nice.
nival interactive is not astrum nival? Interesting... But it's more interesting that the praise themselfes with HOMM5... It was a poor continuation of HOMM3 (and HOMM4 for some others). Hope they've learned from their mistakes. Have fun on allods kraash.
all the important ones the most used bookmarks and important the ant.com toolbar which allows me to download almost all videos from youtube, dailymotion and others... the stumble bar which is quite awesome and useful and at last for work and debugging purposes the web developer bar :)
and On the subject... I'm not that sold on Allods... I played it a little today made a healer and went trough the early stages, but the game seems kinda slow and not on leveling, on casting, walking, fighting
Exclusive Information: Astral Ships in Closed Beta Test 4
Ladies and Gentlemen of the Guild Portal,
As you all have no doubt guessed, the start of Closed Beta Test 4 will be very, very soon. With CBT4 comes more levels, and with more levels come the one thing everyone’s been waiting to experience: Astral Ships. Now, you may be wondering exactly how we can reasonably expect you to complete a month long, epic quest during a closed beta, but we have some exciting news:
The quest to build your own astral ship, for the duration of CBT4, will be reduced to 6 days or, if you are a little more impatient, 3 days – providing you complete the daily quests required.
This announcement is exclusive to Guild Portal members for now, so enjoy your privileged information and prepare yourself for epic astral battles and exploration.
Today's exclusive: It has just been announced that experience gain will be doubled in Closed Beta Test 4. With the speed of levelling doubled, and the length of the Astral Ship quest slashed, it will be no time at all before Allods Online players are taking to the astral for adventure, loot and plunder.
