Yes you need an original Key to set-up your initial account...Thus if your like me and have no use for a box and a dvd you can simply buy a key and download the client.

Still not 100% sure if I want to get back into MMOs again...Got burned out on WoW and WAR was a disappointment. Guess I can always just flip the 50 bucks and try it for the first month and see what will see...Hopefully the bad community Kyero exampled will be the minority...

and hopefuly no People makin Big headed ugly freaks with names like "kissme" pretty awkward when they just follow you around askin to be loved

But that was the beta, I doubt all of them are gonna be in it. Hopefuly there will be more than 10 Servers. The beta only had 1 for a while, then 2 ._. sooooooooooo crouded.

Yeah I hope that too. I have had my share of games where there are only 2 servers or so, both very crowded and it makes it awful to play due lag. Even if you have super computer, game at this degree already requires quite some from your PC, and if there are 1000 people on the area wherever you go = Massive lag X_X

You can switch channels to avoid the crowd.

I highly doubt NCsoft will just have two servers when the game goes live. Perhaps 2 servers well into Open Beta just to stress test, but we should see at least 7 servers when the game goes live.

Bah they use channels? I probably shouldn't be surprised as I've seen many games use them before, but I've never been a fan of them. Having one seamless world per server always feels more in keeping with the concept of a "Massive" game to me.

wait so it doesnt matter what channel you make a character on? you can pick what server you want to log in with that character?

I hope its like that, but at the same time that limits Character names >< I want to call my Gladiator "Izanagi"

It's under one of the commands, as I don't have the GUI in front of me at the moment, I can't recall exactly where you can change it at. Channels are a part of a server, so you can't switch servers. In all honesty though, it doesn't really matter as channels no longer exist after 20.

So basically.... channels are created to curb the massive influx of new players and lack of mobs in the newbie zones.

Started playing the beta tonight and I have to say the graphics are beautiful

The game play reminds me a lot like WoW but the interface is a lot better and the music is very nice.

Cannot wait till the game actually comes out.

So is it going to be follow the more Asian game design in that once you start reaching higher levels you're forced into grouping and other activities? I don't exactly mind that but it would really limit my playing sometimes.

I played lineage 2 back in the day for 2 or so years, then returned to priv servers on and off, fortunate to make cardinal hero on the priv server many times . Unless you ebayed, sold gold or worked with farmers, it was very hard to do high end stuff on retail.

As for Aion, I had a friend playing chinese beta, he said he was liking it and sent me a few really nice looking pictures. I've been asked a few times in the past to come play Aion when it comes. But I just stated.... only if I can play a human char !!!

human warriors ftw !!

I wanted to play the beta, but think I missed out or so. still undecided if I will play when it goes retail. But I will keep an eye on it.

You can solo to end game. I believe the first 45 (lvl 50 is cap in kAion) on the Chinese servers ended up soloing his way there with a Chanter buffbot.

So he used a bot to group with. That's not soloing.

I personally don't like things from NC, they tend to fall back on their stupid habit of "milking a cow to death then beat the dead body for a few drops more of milk". Any games of theirs is fun in the beginning, then they will milk the game past the point where they are suppose to make new contents for them, but they still won't make anything new because they feel they can still milk some more, and turn off the players over time. That's that what happened to Tabula Rasa and that's what I can foresee in this game.

You could just cut the process and solo with a cleric, seems pretty stupidly awesome 'overpowered'. Atleast seemed that way from the start. Might give this game a shot on private servers, can't afford p2p atm.
