    Looks really interesting. Been looking for a while for a new game on Steam.

    One thing though. 40,000 pop servers? Seems a bit ambitious doesn't it for an EA game? I've seen games like this barely make it into double figures player wise upon release... has there been a lot of hype for this game I've just been unaware of or are they just really confident?

    Not a lot of hype. They were pretty tight lipped about the whole ting until last week. Now it's gaining some traction with the YouTube crowd, but it's a sleeper for sure.

    Still waiting for the servers to come up (11.35 NZT) - downloading the client took about an hour.

    It's up? I wasn't sure it would be after all the delays! Going to download now.

    EDIT: Would love to hear the opinions of those who are able to play it already - the download for me looks like it's going to take 30+ hours.

    It is everything you would expect in an Alpha. Lots of login issues and once you do get in, well, lets just say lots of room for improvement.

    Interesting concept in the fact that each map node has it's own set of servers, cannot say I've seen that before.

    Overall experience on release day was pretty average, so don't set your expectations too high.

    I'm looking forward to logging back in post Boxing Day.

    Had my first session playing Atlas. It's buggy, but that's to be expected.

    What I'm having trouble with is just all the stats you have to monitor. And how nothing is explained. And the fact that I can't seem to find an animal to hunt that is low enough level for me to be able to take it down.

    I just seem to keep losing the stuff I make as a level 30 giant snake comes out of nowhere and bites me.

    Is anyone having any luck with this? I'm playing it solo, but can barely stay alive long enough to build a pickaxe and hatchet let alone a ship. I just seem to be swamped by overpowered crocodiles that infest every island before I can even craft a weapon.

    I've got a big chunk of island in the NA PvE server for sale. I can merge with you and you'd get lots of land, ships, animals, mats, etc... Make me an offer!
