I have to agree, this game is awesome now. I bought it at launch, got to lvl 48 with my Barbarian, then quit. Lack of content and bugs made me do so.
Went back about a month ago...
Now the game is showing the promise I expected. Runs great in DX10 (looks amazing, especially when you consider it is a MMORPG) loads of quests and stuff to do, I am actually excited about getting home and logging into AoC.
It still needs work, it's not perfect, but it is FUN now and there is very little grinding.
Yes the game is now more fun after level 20.
