We did have lag problem at first because the server was located in Asia. However, we added additional server in Europe and European players are happy with it.
GS: Which are the difference between your version and the Korean one?
The difference between Korean version and Global version is that Global version is the amount of quests, game contents, and PvP system. We will continue to make up the game system including PvP and many others so you will be able to see there are many different things when you compare with Korean version. We expect to have more contents than Korean version in the year of 2010.

Currently, we are considering many different languages including German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese based on our player population. Meaning that people will be able to play with their mother language game clients UI and play in one server.
