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). ^^

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 🤔)

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)

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 )

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.)

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.

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. ^^

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 ^^

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)

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)

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

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. ^^

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

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 !

Daily 20 : A nice outfit, a neat overboard and a Datacube. ^^

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.

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

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. ☺)

Daily 25 : Some character creation try. (A female Aurin) ^^

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 ♥)

Daily 27 : I love how the wardrobe had basically no limitations whatsoever. E.g : it allowed me to display this chest piece which was Light armor on my Stalker (who wore Medium).

Side note : the NDA was lifted at this point, no more watermark on the screenshots ^^

Daily 28 : I really REALLY like the Stealth animation in WS. It was later changed, and though the final version was cool, this one was really my fav. It really had this "high tech" feel that represented well the Nano-Suit ^^

Daily 29 : I didn't center very well when I took this screen, but I love this giant trapped robot in Algoroc, and the quest around it. Iconic. ^^

Daily 30 (since I forget *again* yesterday) :

Fun times with mounts in Illum. ☺

Daily 31 :

Apparently, this was the day I got the taunt spell, and realized its animatoin included a "Mwahahaha". How cool is that ? :D

Daily 32 :

A Granok I created for a youtube video about the Explorer path, posing on a viewpoint in Algoroc. ^^

Daily 33 :

Not exactly a regular screenshot, but it was in the folder, and I still remember this silly exchange on the chat. ^^'

Daily 34 :

Another set of "taunt spell" screenshots. Not only because I liked the animation, but because, IIRC, I used one of these for a tank guide I made on my guild's website. :)

(Apparently I remembered correctly, just checked webarchive ^^)

Daily 35 :

Level 32-ish, late beta, with my ugly leveling gear in Bio Dome 4. This was one of my favorite zones.
