Well, the european f2p version was crap on crap...even though Im suppose to get a less restrictive account because I was in beta for f2p version. I hate f2p versions that are restrictive in a p2win way. Not for me.
I dont think I got higher than 5ish levels, but then I heard no pvp until you hit 20+ lvl or something, and leveling isnt that fun that I considered it worth it. I understand its some half-asian grind game but I never loved grind as in quests thats just kill this and gather that and no real meaning to it. With more spare time, more interest in meaningless grinds perhaps I would have gotten further. But I hate things, and be forced to grind and level for pvp that is my only interest.... nah. Even though I heard pvp is fun in aion... it's just too long grind to consider it worth to check out... especially in a game that's p2win where you always will have an advantage over players if you pay.
