It is F2P. Just try it.
I think the combat is not fun enough, so i stop playing.

I like STO a lot better than GA. STO ship combat is fun and strategic to me.

Global Agenda is not like Anarchy online at all.
I am a long time player, I started playing when it was P2P
Anyway the game is a FPS arena style game, same style as Team Fortress.
If you enjoy TF, you'll enjoy GA (GA is just more futuristic and faction based)
If not, then don't play GA.
i tried a trial of this game a long time before it went f2p, and i really liked it, actually thought of buying it w/e id find it on a nice discount ( was for 5 bucks once, but i missed it ),,,, then a year later it went f2p and after the first 2 days of playing it turned out the game world is extremely small, so small it shouldnt be even clasified as an mmorpg,,,
imagine the aproximate size of a standard newb zone in a standard mmo, the whole game world in global agenda is barely larger then that, if even that,,,,
it was a good idea to make a fps mmo, but this game lacks scale, really
damn happy i didnt buy it, cos even if i got it for 5 bucks it would be a waste
P.S. as a fellow AO vet i can tell you this game is NOTHING like AO, it has ZERO in common with it, besides it being in a sci-fi setting
P.S.2 Omni-Tek is your friend!
Games previously played: AO, AoC, Aion, AoW, Eve, SWTor, WaR, STO, TSW, DCUO, FE, BP, ProjectEntropia, FootballSuperstars!

Really? I don't know there is a GA2 being worked on. I played a bit of GA couple years ago .. and drop it because the combat is not as fun as i like.
But a role-based sci-fi pve shooter is essentially my type of game. If GA2 is F2P, then i will definitely give it a look.
well, its still not good old Anarchy, but Fallen Earth is a very interesting game for us AO refugees if you havent tried it out yet,,,
- while not sci-fi its setting is post apocaliptic, wich is as close as you can get right now if you count out the less then mediocre swtor
- while char development is not as complex as in AO, its much more complex then 99% of mmo's out there, there is no "twinking" as we know it from AO, but still its char development ( classless system ) exceeds pretty much everything besides AO and Eve
- game is a FPS/TPS MMORPG, while im not a fan of fps games, and ussually suck at em simply becouse i havent played any in over a decade i really got pulled in into this one, if you want fps/tps mmorpg combo, youre way better off trying out FE then GA
- while not a sandbox its not your standard themepark either, for example while zones are still following ( propably wrong word, its really early tho and english not my native language, sorry ), ie. first one has content for lvls 1-15, second 16-30 etc, the zones are huge and open, with lots of content spread out trough them, it definately doesnt feel like "on rails"
- while its not swg's crafting system, its still very fun, actually one of the very few games i got into crafting
- game must be popullar amongts AO refugees, since i fell into quite a few of them while playing FE
- game is free2play, and last time i played NOT p2w
P.S. Omni-Tek Protects!
just becouse i miss it so much, more OMNI propaganda!!!
Omni-Tek made me what I am today!
How i miss anarchy online...
Anyway GA isnt a bad game, its just a game that kinda went halfway between a FPS with a meta game, and a mmorpg...and kind of just sat there in the middle.
It had (at the time) the intro area being an open world map, which was fun. You make your way into some biodome city, and at that point it becomes a lobby based FPS with matches. Yes you can run around the lobby which is nice.
Theres pve instance, where most people dont understand what a role is and what RPG PVE is and how it works, so it gets really fustrating on the harder instanced when you have your DPS running ahead of the group, tank off on his own, and theres no teamwork or willingness to let the tank pull (or at least run in first)
Theres pvp matches that are control point, mixed in with a bit of territory control for metagaming. Its usually one side stomping the other, and one side using teamwork the other ignoring teamwork. I think they allow one clan to hire mercs which are random people who are queued up, they get stomped by the organized clan.
Theres also a blend mode. One where you have a few enemy players dropped into your PVE instance to terrorize you, and i think a secret agent mode where a guy on your team is working against you. Awesome on paper, in execution it needs work.
Theres also PVE raids on timers which are pretty fun, you basically defend areas from waves of enemies and i think a boss if i can remember right, those were fun.
High-Rez seems to have some of the best cash shops around, its cheap to play this game, cheap to be premium, cheap to enjoy the maximum benefits you can obtain from playing, which is rare since free game usually like to pit people into bottomless pits of money spending when competeing versus eachother.
IF they made a GA2 its going to have to offer waay more open world style play, and work on its non pvp instances a lot to make this game anything special. I think a lot of people left GA early on once they realize the starter area is a tease and the rest of the game is queued up inside the biodome. Top it off with a community completely ignorant to RPG style teamwork, and not receptive to advice on why the pve isntance isnt going well (refusing to work as a team usually).
The pvp was ok if your in an organized clan who works together, being a bit boring and repetative after a while. PVP as a random guy is painfull.
Its actually a really good game to mess around in, wont run you a ton of money to enjoy the game in full ( i think i paid like $10 which puts you on a sort of subscription style reward for life, and they offer boosters for varying times. All paying does is give you an additional reward slot, booter opens up a 3rd slot, free players get one slot. Theres helmets in the cash shop i think too and some dyes if i can remember, thats it though, level seems to stop mattering after 30. Not a good game to play hours daily but worth a try and fun to pop into every now and then.
The game is really nice, but it is dead.
Population has dropped considerable and the devs already said they will not update the game anymore.
Enjoy it while they dont pull the server plug.

I hate how Ga2 sounds.
They took everything that made GA good out. They took the potential that the open world map had out.
They even took out the hex based clan territory warfare.
Its just going to be deathmatches (and im sure some other games) with spectator mode and progression...that's it. They don't even have PVE plans (though not off the table) Its just going to be a lobby based deathmatch and CTF game.
I would have loved GA2 to be a game with more open world maps. More pve/pvp instances (I loved the raids even though no pvp in them) and the clan warfare was a good meta game for a time...with some work it would be awesome.
Would be like a mix of PS2 and Defiance.
Instead were getting Tribes basically.
