I was looking through the raft of free-to-play MMOs the other day and came across Elf Online, whose slogan is "There is nothing you can't do". Saying something like that to me is like showing a red rag to a bull, so I decided there was nothing for it but to test their claim. It's therefore with great pride that I present to you…
The Top 10 Things You Can't Do In Elf Online
10. Use a password containing capital letters
Elf Online fails as soon as you try to log in. I went through the process of setting up an account, only to find that my password didn't work. Not only this, but their password retrieval system was "busy". Rather than wait for the system to wake up from its nap, I created a second account only to experience the same problem. When trying to log into the game, I was presented with the message, "Please pay attention to capital letter!!" Bad grammar and excessive punctuation aside, I discovered that the capital letters in my password had been altered to lower-case. This can be convenient when writing an article (so that it doesn't end up lOOkinG LIke tHIS), but is something of a problem when you can only log into an account using guesswork.
