    We patch as often as we can and care deeply about the future of the game. You can take a look at the patch notes in the Announcements section of the forums :) As for advertising, we do occasionally and will more in the future when we feel the time is right. The game is free to try so why not hop in and see for yourself? :)

    It is actually very easy to play completely for free. There are items called "Game Time Tokens" which you can use to get 30 days of premium membership. These items are sold by players on the in game market for gold, so many players utilize that option.You can still play even without premium but there are restrictions, none of which affect your pvp capabilities.

    Hmm,okay.I can't buy anything so I will try it for free.But,I might not like it,altough I will give feedback once I played it for a bit.

    Also,pvp isn't really my thing,I am more of a pve player.So is there content to satisfy my pve wishes?
    --- Post updated ---
    So um,is there enough pve content,since I am not much of a pvp player.

    From the last 7 days, there's 127 unique players that either ganked someone or got ganked. That doesn't account for players who never got ganked or waited for people to bleed out, or got away.

    It is a free to play game. I've been Free-to-play up until recently and only subbed because I'm in the process of trying to convince a group of friends of mine to play the game and I'll need to have a sub to create a clan.

    I know 127 people doesn't sound like a lot, but there's going to be plenty of people who aren't included in that 127. I'm not even though I was killed because my killer didn't gank me and I bled out.

    There's tonnes of PvE stuff in the game to do. Farming mobs will make you a very wealthy person.

    In fact if you're mainly concerned with PvE then pop isn't a huge issue and you can get a lot out of the game with a very low population level.

    Pve is lots of fun for me, the element of danger adds a lot to the experience imo. That said, you can avoid pvp too, a portion of the map is pvp disabled, then in other places you only lose a few of your pieces of equipment if you get ganked, and of course, there are very dangerous full loot areas also. You can have lots of fun relatively safely, lots of profit to be found all around the game world.

    There is a small grind to become pvp viable but to completely max out the grind is a bit longer. If your goal is to kill monsters then your character can be very viable quite quickly.
