Default AION: The tower of eternity

Is there anyone else looking forward to this game?...i think it has a lot of potential and apparently the Korean open beta has proven to be really popular....

why would anyone be looking forward to it?
That is a real question by the way, give us some of the high points they´re touting.

Doesnt LOOK very exciting, the guy in the picture looks horrible, and the graphics subpar even for a MMO in this day and age.
And that is all I can tell from the screens, that it has worse graphics than WOW, with more bloom.

Looks like a colorful version of lineage II which I liked but hated the grind.

I was anticipating it, but any game that releases in Korea before even going into Beta in the US (as they plan to do) tells me that we're a secondary market, and they don't care. Aion had potential, but I won't waste my time now. No way am I starting new on a server where everyone else is max level.

No, it's not. Guildwars uses it's own engine, while Aion is using the same engine as Farcry.

From my experience , Korean MMO = suck. They love masochistic grind fests and think fancy graphics makes up for lack of game play.
