    7.2 for a generic bag of cereal on the bottom shelf? I'm glad you and other's like it, but that's a hefty score for something that's like everything else.

    Really there isnt alot wrong with the game I think I'm just tired of this type of MMO....It feels way too much like WoW and just running around aimlessly doing quests doesnt seem to do anything for me anymore......I didnt even bother to read a single quest in the game, just grab and go over and over....Judging by the lack of population maybe everyone else is tired of this kind of MMO too.

    Not too far off of the score I gave it. I think the title is not true though. Fall in love with it or uninstall in a week is not very accurate. Uninstall it in an hour or enjoy it for awhile is more like it. ASTA is a good and sometimes very good time filler while you take a break from your regular game or wait for the mmo you really want to play. As @Torval said the subprofessions add greatly to the time spent in the game and even offer a way to progress your character away from the linear quest train. I am a fan of the game and being in an active guild has helped shield me from the small population because I always have guildies to play with. Guild wars have been a ton of fun and a highlight that was also overlooked in this review but is a big part of the game. It also is a very active part of the game. The also unmentioned variety in mounts,pets and character builds through the talent points which allow you to spec your class in a way that matches your playstyle is a good selling point to playing it. Overall a decent review, just needed more time exploring some of the things in the game that allow the game to stand on it's own. I play about every other day. Have been since the IBT and then again once open beta hit. 

    sorry for the bold letters, I am on my chromebook in the airport lol

    Holy shit this actually looks worse than WoW played on ultra-low settings... one of these games is 11 years old one isn't. Maybe the screens were taken on low settings - the world may never know (I sure won't because it's never getting installed in the first place).

    It's too much like WoW to quit WoW to play this.  Even the UI seems like it blatantly ripped off WoW's.

    Also, the fact that it was closed down in Korea means that anyone should think long and hard about investing any non-trivial amount of time in this game here...

    I get your point but I don't believe it changes anything.

    I gave this game a few hours.  It is a good sleep aid imo.  It's not bad, it's not good, it feels like I have played it before...a lot.  It does not grab my attention at all, very predictable and easy, lackluster classes you would expect to see from a true WoW clone.

    It's all around just meh.  My opinion of course.

    If you want a new idea, go read an old book.

    The point is that no matter how successful the game was in Korea, they lost their publisher for no reason related to the game.  It was a marginal game in Korea, making money for the publisher, but not buckets. 

    ASTA went against the driving force for Korean MMOs; brutal open world PvP.  That is most likely why they did not find another publisher there.  The makers of the game saw a bigger potential audience in the west, where mandatory PvP has a much smaller following.

    Asian Warcraft kind of.....where can I sign up?

    No...just no.

    I was in the uninstall after a week camp. I tried a couple of classes in both factions but was never hooked by anything. The biggest turn off for me was the localization of quests. I'm one that actually likes to experience lore and read quests (I typically out level a zone since I focus on quests vs level grind) and I found this aspect of Asta to be just awful.

    Enjoying this so far. Lots of Random things to do. I do like the Asian theme and I find the terrible translations funny.

    I'm getting this error "Over login fail count"... already tried making new account, still getting this error. Any idea? I can't open a ticket, because I can't login in the webzen website.

    You really don't need to post this in every single thread. It's likely a problem with their site and connectivity. Wait a few hours and try again.

    Sorry, could not find ASTA forum in here.

    It has been a week already.

    There's not a lot you can do if their site won't work for you. You can do the basic stuff like logging in with a different browser or clear your cookies and your browser cache and try to login. If that doesn't work there's not a lot to do.

    You could try emailing them, but they don't provide an easy to reach address and no support if you can't login. Webzen has one of the worst support systems along with Aeria. People knock PWE and Nexon but at least you can email if you have a problem.

    This menssage happens when I try to login in the game client as well.
    I can go on the website and create a new account, but in every account I create, I get this error when I try to login in the game client or website.

    It could be a firewall or anti-malware software thing. You could look into that.

    Well this is a first! I'm not allowed to play!

    After reading the review and comments, I decided to give the game a try. But I'm Australian and it looks like Australian IPs are blocked O.o

    WTF!

    Download.
    Update.
    nProtect something wants to install.
    What the heck is that?
    Started some reading about nProtect.
    No way i'm going to let that on my PC.
    So, while i would be interested in playing ASTA, i'm not going to, because of nProtect.
