"I have played Universe Online and not only is it an outstanding game, the developers are always looking for ways to improve their game and I expect Nocturion will be no different. Keep up the good work guys!" - SirBartox
"Absolutely spot on! Most members of our allicance have been around for more than 3 years. We have seen players come and go, we were there while the game developed its “story”, and we will probably be here for the next “surprises” that the developers-story tellers have in mind. We all must consider that this game doesn't end!!! There are no alt servers, no seasons. The story goes on. Let's enjoy playing."- khatzi
