United Mining Exploration Commission: A group of friends playing JumpGate-- "a MMORPG that launched smoothly, breaks from fantasy character setting, emphasizes PvP, and is the first persistent world space simulator that nobody talks about." ~Scorch

"Jumpgate is ... a simple well thought out game that doesn't have a manual the size of a Tom Clancy book. They kept it simple while making it deep enough that folks won't get bored with it. It's a premise that works."

HAAHAHAHAH...and that was the old one. you should see the sloppy job Darksheer did posting about EP2 on IanStorm's news site, here

ROLEPLAYING WHAT? I suppose XP+LVL & Registry = RPG? I wouldn't exactly call JG incorporating the best elements. Where's the side thrusters? Not to mention, I've always considered XP/LVL/CLASS to be the mundane part of an RPG and certainly wouldn't describe the levelling/registry choices as optimal or even enjoyable in a "Roleplaying" sense of the word at all
    Both of these "elements" have become the most exploited parts of JumpGate...I certainly wouldn't pimp the game engine as much as i'd emphasize the community spirit that most MMOG customers stay for.
