What's people's thought on Albion and Legend of Aria?

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?

    Albion Online is very very grindy. I played it for two weeks when the game launched and I stopped playing. It's also one of those things were people were playing the game so long that I was getting ganked left and right because there were people who had years to look into builds and I personally shy away from looking up build guides.

    I backed Legends of Aria and I have been disappointed. Another game I played for a few weeks and stopped. The game is lacking something and I am not sure what. I think the player made servers will end up saving the game but since the game is still in Early Access the player made servers won't be finished for a while.
    I changed my profile picture, sorry

    I play Albion from time to time

    Gameplay is fun. I like the graphic very much.

    I dont think the game managed to acomplish what it was after - being sort of medieval EVE online.

    But the devs are actually ( suprisingfor today day and age of MMOs ) are moving the game indirection people are actually liking.

    That being sai, its full loot PVP mmo. So you know what to expect

    legend of aria,

    I don't mind developers doing classic ideas, but the top down not knowing whats around me in a 20 foot circle is something I'll never like, much less in an mmorpg.

    Awhile back I've seen footage of players fighting things that were off their screen, and their group mates were off the screen too.... This completely turned me off.

    This is one classic idea, I'll never like.

    This for me too, unless you can zoom way out.

    Top down view is not a classic idea in the sense of old school, it is just a cheap way of programming. But I have enjoyed such games, just not as MMOPRG's.

    Albion is a really good grinder if that's what you want.   Even stupid mechanics like 5 people in each guild determining the fate of territory control, actually reinforces grind mechanics since it means the best grinders with the highest statistical advantages have social leverage in such events.

    Practice doesn't make perfect, practice makes permanent.

    Both have one thing in common and that is unless you are an early adopter who can overlook many things then you should let them cook a bit longer.

    Albion seems to be a game where the developers are listening though and attempting improvements so maybe there is a future here.  I tried it briefly and it was ok but that has been a while now so it may be very different.

    LoA confuses me a tad because if you want UO then you can play UO.  If there was no option then I understand making a game like it but you often cannot do better than the original and that is the case here.

    I tried Legends of Aria and played for about an hour.
    If I hadn't played UO I would have bee TOTALLY lost as there is no tutorial.
    The interface is kind of - difficult - IMHO.


    What Legends of Aria has going for it is the UO feel which it does very well.
    It is UO2 for sure but needs TONS of polish going forward.

    It appears that Albion is a bit more refined.
    I'll check it out this weekend.

    Albion is ok, but quickly becomes repetitive. It's far too simplistic, and lacks any real depth to sustain people's interest the way an MMO has to.

       Dont be fooled by imitations

    I tried it this weekend.
    I'd agree with that assessment.
    It felt like everything was on rails.

    People's "thought" singular?  Is that a reference to the expectation that people not actually think about them at all very much?
