I use my screenshot folder as screensaver and since it reminds me a lot of nice memories, I figured I'd share them, on screenshot at a time.

I'll post daily (when I don't forget), and basically go chronologically. I might skip some (when it's redundant or pointless).

So for my 1st : my first glimpse into the beta I had access thanks to a WoW guild's friend, the Rowsdower that serves as a PH when your account has no character to show. ☺ That's stupid & funny, which was a good intro to the general spirit !

Apparently my 1st char on the beta was a Chua engineer. I was so amazed by the exosuit cooldown and the bots that it was the 1st thing I took as screenshots while in game. (I assume the intro was NYI at this time)

Daily 3 : my first screenshot of the actual UI. It's the old UI and the release one was better, but it actually looked good imo ! Also you can see the watermark all over the screen (to avoid leaks, the game was still under NDA). ^^

Show thread

Daily 4 : weren't the hoverboards the best ? ♥ I didn't remember, but apparently they were available right at the begining of the beta.

(And iirc on live this model was given to former beta testers ? Not sure tho 🤔)

Show thread

Daily 5 : Not the most thrilling screen, but after my Chua, I made an Exile Stalker and apparently I got impressed by the animation when the char recieves a a quest remotely. (The "NDA watermark" is very noticeable there)

Show thread

Daily 6 : One thing that had a lot of flavor where the gather tools. They basically laser versions of IRL tools. And the chainsaw (that I happen to pick 1st) was particularly cool. =)

... well not chainsaw, laser saw ? :P

Daily 7 : Rapidly the stalker was my favorite class. They can tank, the gameplay rewards good choices, the stealth has great utility uses (in addition to the stealth itself).
... and also, the animations are great. ☺

Daily 8 : I knew from the start that Explorer would be my favorite path ! (Note : "paths" were activities, that basically were made to suit the player's way of playing and that was selected regardless of the class : youtube.com/watch?v=lmCyPXv5AP )

Those short teasers were so fantastic, weren't they. ♥

Show thread

Oh I forgot to do yesterday so hey, I'll do two at once. :P

Daily 9 : Weeeee hoverboard \o/ (Not much else to say. Those things were just so cool.)

Show thread

Daily 10 : After switching faction (because I found a cool guild cc @AngelsWingsFR@twitter.com ), I did Levian Bay which was my favorite starting zone. The stormy, wet, kinda dark atmosphere worked very well and the story was neat.
Also, we could borrow a temporary mount at a NPC.

Show thread

Daily 11 : Though it had some flaws, I really liked the character customizations, and often took screenshot at the char selection. It's worth noting that they all had a neutral pose back then, which would eventually be changed for races-related poses. ^^

Show thread

Daily 12 : I said this already, and I'll probably say it a few times on this thread, but Explorer was a fantastic path. Nice perks and made you go place you didn't think you could. I love it so much ^^

Show thread

Daily 13 : Weeeeeeeee hoverboooaaaard ! \o/ (Yes, those mounts hovered above the water ; until a patch that came after launch iirc, they were the only ones that could)

Show thread

Daily 14 : Judging for this screenshot, the beta version of Everstar Grove lacked of lot of details... Or maybe my compter didn't display enough ? 🤔 (Seems really empty though)

Show thread

Daily 15 : My stalker level 12-ish, with the pants and boots of the beta exclusive outfit ^^

Show thread

Daily 16 : Among the funny things around Protostar (the big neutral corporation in WS universe), cubigs were one of the silliest things I remember. :D I guess this screenshot was taken the first time I saw them. ^^

Show thread

Daily 17 : Dunno why I took this (but as I said, I like take character menu's screenshots^^), but it gives a view of the "pre-F2P" character creation. The new one was cool, but I have to say I like the old one too. Classic & efficient. :P

Also, this Mordesh looks angry

Show thread

Daily 18 (2 in a row cause I couldn't post yesterday :P) : I love the fact that during leveling (and even once 50) the game had quest that implied finding clues to determine a code of a cage/device/etc... Along with minigames, this stuff worked very well !

Show thread

Daily 21 : Posing with my (Dominion) Uniblade, next to two (Exile) Grinders. I loved them both, and they all were well designed to reflect the faction style, but I have to say I have a preference for Grinders. Luckily for me, they was a blue grinder accessible for all.

Show thread

Daily 22 (well, "yesterday's" post cause I forgot again ^^') :
Reading a log in Wintervale. Always liked those, and especially the Datacubes obviously.

Show thread

Daily 23 : Mining some relics while questing in an Exo-Lab. The atmosphere on those exo labs was FANTASTIC and in great part thanks to the OST. Their themes perfectly gave the feeling that we were in something old, mysterious and advanced ♥

(I just noticed that there was a uniblade mid air that basically landed on my char 2 sec after. :D A great " youtube.com/watch?v=1wiz0UsBPa" moment. ☺)

Show thread

Daily 26 : Ok so I said I'd post every screenshot except particularly useless one, or if redundant, so I have to post this.
... But what on Earth did I think when I created this Aurin ? xD (Other than that, Algoroc's Exo lab in the background ♥)
