broke down and bought aion :0

Aion is the first mmo I've actually spent money on since wow + expansions.   The main three reasons are: one, because it seemed more polished and intelligently crafted than any I've tried since wow.  Two, because I finally started getting hooked towards the end of my time in the beta, mainly because I switched to group questing instead of soloing.  Three, because I've seen numberous times on this forum that it really gets fun end-game as long as you enjoy pvping (that's me!).  Wish me luck.

    Have fun!

     

    Edit:  I didn't like the game myself after about 33 levels.  However I would never tell someone not to buy it.  Everyone should experience it first hand to decide for themselves.

    Good luck and hope you enjoy it.

    1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.

    2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.

    3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.

    Kudos to you for finding a game you enjoy!

     

    I also have found my GOC (game of choice). It's not Aion though.

    I'm currently downloading the 6.5g client atm. At about 99k/s, that should only take me about 24 hours?

    I hope download rate goes up later tonight.

    I hope you like, I am so far, beware of some hardcore grind after 38ish. No seriously the grind after 38 is really long so hitting 50 is tough. best of luck

    I agree but I'm talking about what I noticed about the game not asians.

    That's why you need something else to spice things up before, during, and after you play.  Then it's fun.

    Why does the game quit every time you disconnect from the server?  Pretty dumb.  Don't they think I might just want to log back in?

    Yeah, that is weird.  They really need to narrow the height slider to make it less goofy. 

    Level 10 and it's fairly fun so far.  I wish you could fly in more places.  You work to get daeva or whatever and you should be able to enjoy the fruits of your labor right away instead of being told "you can't fly here".   I was also confused thinking I was going to get wings for the wing slot.  I guess that's just for upgrading?
