I tried the game back before its original "release" and found it an unplayable and sad experience. I had read a lot of negativity on this board and other places, so was reluctant to try it again but was a little burned out on some of the other games I was playing and decided to give the trial a whirl.
I have to say I have found it pretty enjoyable. I find the graphics decent enough, the combat moves at a good pace. I am playing a healer and the talent trees are awesome and I find myself truly excited when i get new spells. I am a big fan of the study system and the library is a pretty awesome idea and has helped me on numerous quests and tracking down crafting items. I have found a few bugs here and there but nothing major. I went ahead and bought the game after a couple hours and have not been disappointed, I even talked a friend to give the trial a whirl and he soon bought it.
The population isn't great but I had no trouble getting groups to kill named bosses. My friend and I found a group of people in a guild and ran a couple instances, 1 was a lot of fun and the other seemed bugged on the final boss, he just wouldn't die and killed everyone that targeted him almost instantly but I understand these things happen in new games. My friend and I got invited to this guild and there are always people on and very helpful.
All and all I am having fun in this game and my friend and I are trying to get as many people we know in the game as possible. I think with a bigger community this could be a really great game. I know some people are big on bashing the dev team and mr. smart, and I can admit from his posts he comes off as abrasive and slightly douche-ish, but from what I saw in beta to now I have faith they will only improve the game. If you haven't tried it, look past the hype and give it a try it is a fun game. You just may like it. Just my 2 cents.
