@dlinden

Eh... is the game still a massive grindfest, and how much of the game will be locked behind the Cash Shop, I wonder?

sweeeeeeet

I enjoyed the trial, but really didn't want to drop the money for a monthly fee. I can get behind this.

I always stayed away from this game because I heard bots and gold farmers were rampant. Is this [still] the case? I have been considering playing older games since the newer ones tend to be bad.

Nice to hear. Honestly I tried playing the game, and while the graphics were nice, its biggest issue for me was the whole "click to move" system. I just can't handle that in a P2P game though...

Going F2P though, and its fine! (Odd I know)

@DevilSei I was under the impression they have WASD movement....Does it not work well?

I'll admit I played it a couple years back on a whim, and for the life of me I couldn't find anything for WASD movement.

@DevilSei yeah, you have to turn on "press enter to start chatting" in the options menu, and then you can use WASD. It's not smooth though.

Oh how I hope Aion won't follow the same fate. Doubt it, though, since it's still one of the largest games in Asia.

I'm glad this news came out before my subscription renewed.

I know I'm usually gung-ho about games going freemium being a great thing and I'll typically want to try it out, but this time I think I'll pass. I mean, unless someone can convince me there's a lot more to do than grind, which is all I've ever heard about.

@JuliusSeizure iirc, the breast physics are impressive.

@JuliusSeizure

The GoD update will add quest that make leveling a lot faster. From what I've read on the forums, 1 - 40 is like what 1 - 20 is now, which is a few quest. Then 40 to 76 being like 20 to 40. So, it wont take very long to level at all.

@Sente
"Fun" is far too dependent on personal taste, so the only way to answer that is to do research based on your tastes and try it out. Certainly, from what I've heard, if you love PVP its supposed to be a great game.

poor russians ... do they have to wait this long for every game release?

@Resurge Actually the gama has already been released in Russia by the same comapny in question (Innova). It has been F2P in Russia for a long, long time.

@Resurge Russian release was almost three years ago, as well as this "new hybrid system".

@Bulat well that's cool i guess, but then why does the story say : "This comes hand-in-hand with the announcement that the game will be receiving a Russian launch in the near future." ?

@Resurge they misread the press release. The Russian company is now taking over the publishing for the European market.
