What is the new material in Beta Phase 2 that was not in Beta Phase 1. Just so I know what to test more thoroughly.

Jon, imo it would be a good idea to add a race description and maybe the mods it has when you create a character.

Oh and, I just got level 2, it said I was blessed with 5 points, but when I got to "Redeem Points", it said I have 0.

Looks like the level doesn't get increased. It now says I got blessed every kill I make, but the level is still 1.

The level issue is resolved. Race information is being added right now.

Another suggestion: Make the anti-bot pictures bigger. They're hard to read sometimes. I type O instead of 0 all the time.

Also, maybe they shouldn't be case-sensitive if the letters are all capitals anyways?

Anti-bot issues and level point issues have been resolved. I have also updated the anti-bot to be easier to read and more effective. As to the 'Under the Hood' changes. most of them are equations for calculating character information and battle statistics.

Suggestion: make it possible to choose the order in which your spells appear on the list (or at least which spell appears by default) when a battle starts. You probably remember, it was like that in KOR. A lot more comfortable.

Also, the anti-bot font makes the S look like a 5. Almost exactly.

And I almost stop playing games because they force me to do a captcha every time I login and then force it every hour or two... realistically? Unless I were botting or became so amazingly bored, I probably wouldn't keep playing this War2 post-testing.

And this level of captcha is the point where I'd be trying to bot it just so I didn't give myself a headache trying to figure out which letters are which every 5 mins.

Note: This is not condoning cheating, saying I will cheat, or anything of the sort. It IS a statement that if the final version of WaR2 gives me a headache like this one does, I'm not going to be playing it. :)

Ahh well, Chargg, you do come with a history of cheating. Your disclaimer made me laugh out loud.

But that aside, I agree with you that it gets a little tiring having to key in numbers and letters three times everytime I go back to the altar. Maybe it should be made simpler. Maybe just having to key two numbers would be more convenient than having to key in a set of numbers + letters.

I'm pleased with the antibot measures in place though.

I am debating removing the anti-bot from the health and mana restoration. and merely having it in place for stamina.

Eh, Chargg doesn't have a history of cheating. ZGuy has a history of cheating. Different accounts, different rules of them. The only 'cheating' I've done on this account has been in response to challenges... The botting in beta1 was in response to TS saying that botting would be impossible in his WaR2. Obviously not. :) If TS challenges me to create a bot for this captcha, I'll see what I can come up with on a different character, but as it stands, I try not to cheat, as much as demonstrate. ;)

Then I said that I could do it with 3 windows almost as fast instead, and you disbelieved. :)
