I haven't play Albion.
Playing Legend of Aria at the moment. Surprise how much "safe zone" there are. Got through most of the game without going in unsafe zone.
There are also an moded server called legend of ultima. Presumably try to make the game more "ultima liked".
I haven't played Albion. The review I heard on it isn't so good. So didn't try it. I'm the type who read player's review to decide if try a game or not.
I also prefer legend of aria still have no cash shop at the moment. While ALbion I understand have a premium subscription?
