    I would suggest doing a trial of the game first.

    The game is extremely fun if you have a computer that's good enough to handle it. It is very taxing, but the game is absolutely gorgeous if you play on high.

    As for the community, play on a RP server. They are the only servers where you'll find a smaller amount of complete retards.

    As for gameplay, yeah it's pretty awesome.

    I recommend the game highly.

    Terrible community? Nope, it had the same sort of community as any other MMO. Many elitists, many idiots, many self-proclaimed experts, many griefers (I was one of them), many whiners... etc etc. Same as always.

    Gameplay is superb, until end game where it falls flat, despite their content patches. The game was ace when it had many players still playing, when world pvp happened at all level ranges. That was awesome. But don't fool yourself, end game is utter shite. There's barely anything to do besides pvping, and the pvping barely yields anything anyway, the gear you can get through pvping, well, it's not as great as one would like. Sure, you have raid dungeons at end game, but they're not good... And it's not a raid-oriented MMO anyway.

    They were successful in bringing back many players to try out the game, they weren't successful in keeping most of those players. Because all they've essentially done, is to do what they should have had ready at launch.

    * Optimization - Should've been in at launch, is MUCH better now, though still needs work...
    * Quests for all level ranges - Should've been in at launch, is now in. More than enough quests for you to level to 80 on. No grinding necessary at all now.
    * PvP rewards (this was advertised as a PvP game, but had NO pvp gear at all *FAIL*) had none at launch, does have now, needs more work...
    * Dungeons, that's about the only thing I've felt was good and working at launch, but this isn't a pve game, if you want pve, WoW is a hundred times better. Where this game should excel, is in the PvP. But Failcom wants to do both so they have to split focus. It's retarded how many times they have to repeat their mistakes. The community has craved for PvP stuff since launch, many great ideas, yet, Failcom punches out these new dungeons every damn content patch, if we want dungeons, we would've gone for WoW or LOTRO, they have dungeons, and they do them MUCH better.
    * Class stability... Err. What is that? Balance wise, it jumps like any other MMO, but stability... Seems a class breaks every damn time they push out a patch. The necro and his pets have always been broken, now they work better, but are still ****ed up with pets getting stuck unto random objects, ceasing to do damage sometimes, just disappearing without reason... The demo double critting on one skill... Etc. It only took them, err, how long has it been since AoC launched?

    Oh, feats? What are those, Failcom asks? They're STILL broken, missleading and confusing. It's mind blowing how they do their work, they must all be sitting in their offices throwing dices and randomly changing feats to see if they're working, then regardless of wherter it actually worked, they pat themselves on the back and go home, while letting their community team sort out the whines.

    --

    I went back to it at the recent event, and it was the last time I gave it a chance. As I said, they've barely changed anything about the game, all they've done, is add stuff that should've been there at launch.

    But hey, try it out, maybe it'll be fun for you. Me though, I'm done with this game and its developer. I had faith they'd fix it all up, because I liked AO, their previous work. But lets face it, they're out of their league with this game.

    i highly recommend this game played the trial had alot of fun got up to lvl 20 in 3 days or so (then made more characters) found a nice guild pvp'd a bit. overall its fun and worth a try. but make sure you have a good comp, the graphics are plain awesome :3
    and i didnt rly think of the community as a bad one, tho there was a high lvl player (for that particular place) camping at a low lvl free-pvp spot killing anyone who entered, but theres bound to be an ******* from time to time
    I Leik HoN (and mudkipz)

    Fixed that for ya.

    I play on Tyranny with a few friends, It's fun ganking getting ganked. The community strikes me as a bunch of little pissed off kids that got picked on in school to much mixed with some Man Child's. so naturally Global chat is a riot of laughs, its also right up my Alley to grief these players more. oh and btw Ninth legion is always recruiting.

    i have no idea what the pve servers are like because i am not a pussy.
    I'm stuck inside the future and life is chaotic
    The government is psychotically racist and robotic
    The matrix of entrapment is socio-economic
    Erotic conspiracy theory becomes reality
    Life is war, and every day's a battle to me
