Let the gamer beware, Forsake this game!

Condolences, dear seekers, for Perfect World Entertainment's Forsaken World (formerly "Project EM"/PEM), MMORPG. This site was once filled with hope, but now serves as a warning to gamers with even the slightest glimmer of interest.

Forsaken World has been released in "Open Beta", and brings SHAME to PWE and it's parent Company, PWB (Perfect World Beijing). FW is a Flagship of Corporate Greed, and Poor Craftsmanship..

"Come, mourn with me! Practice well your Dirges, your Nocturnes, and your Vespers! Come grieve with me, Dark Children, and together we shall conduct a Grand Funeral, scored in blood!"

We shall hunt elsewhere for the promises left unfulfilled by this Forsaken World.

Well, on the new NA/EU website, there are 2 mini games, atm. One of them, "God's Protection" (previously known lovingly as "BBR"), isn't working,(SEE EDIT) , and the other one, "Wheel of Eyrda" qualifies (to me) as one of the most frustrating mini games evah! Let's take a look:

The mini game Start page. (Nice pic, btw, PW)

You're gonna hate this guy. He brings the "woe" to WoE. (get it?)
This is the guy who's never happy, it seems.

Now, the object is to find, 7, 8 and then 9 "gems", (respectively), and then place them properly in the constellation. Sounds ok, so far. Except that, the "gems" are about 4x4 pixels. Okay, granted, I need new glasses, but wow. Here's stage 1, at the start. How many gems can you find? (remember, there is a time limit)

Stage 1 Example. How many can you find?

So, let's just let the timer run out. Here's what you get:

Whoa, dude.. don't be so harsh!

You're likely to see that... a lot. Hence, the 'hating that guy' This is what happens if you succeed:

Well, "short, and sweet". At least I'm not a failure.

Alrighty, then...on to stage 2. More gems required, n this one.:

No matter how many times I play it, this level is never "correct". Never.

Okay, Stage 3: The final challenge...still more gems...and a picture that blends them all in, really well.:

That's it?!?

No link to any 'hidden bonus', (like the music link in "God's protection"/BBR). A half hour of being abused by 'Father Time', for this? Gah! Most frustrating mini game, evah! (Okay, I admit, I did have fun with it, though.)

EDIT: Thanks to stipriausias on the Forsaken World Forums, a work-around has been found!

So, Here's "God's Protection" (I'm *still* calling it "BBR")

"BBR" in English, at last!

If you fail. Not nearly as harsh as 'Father Time' in WoE.

If you succeed!

And, as in the Chinese Version, if you succeed you get treated to a music link! (Yes, it's the exact same MP3 as the Chinese site, actually links from shenmo.wanmei.com), still worth hearing.
