By the way, sometime tomorrow we should be able claim our pre-order bonuses, so that will speed things up a little bit more.
Having never played it before, I didn't have any trouble finding my way around and questing. There was almost no lag at all and aside from some long queues shortly after the launch, the servers were 100% stable. Easily the smoothest and best launch I've ever seen in an MMORPG. The level of polish surprised me too - I know the game has been around for a while in Korea (and wherever else) but the localization was done very well.
This is the only MMORPG since WoW that I would seriously consider renewing my sub for after the initial free month. I have no plans to stop playing WoW though, and I don't know if I'll be up for paying two MMO subs a month. We'll see.
