Default Aion(EU/NA) beta starts June 5

Credit goes to MMOsite.
Quote:
Finally, Aion's first beta test for EU/NA players has been announced to start on June 5th. In this first event, beta testers will play Aion as the Elyos, who occupy the bottom half of Atreia, known as Elysea.

"It's almost time to spread your wings and take flight in Aion™!

Soon, NCsoft will formally invite select players and members of the press to play in the first Aion beta event. Players will take their first fledgling steps in a world of unparalleled splendor and intrigue. Choosing between two powerful races and among eight character classes and thousands upon thousands of avatar customization options, players will embark on a journey where they must choose sides in a celestial civil war that threatens to destroy the once-peaceful world of Atreia."
Cant wait. It's time to quit CN or Korean version. xD

The game is very good looking. It seems very polished, no glitches so far. Nothing really seemed to be wrong with the game except that it was boring. It is a much better MMO than many that have come out but it just feels like a Korean MMO and I'm not into their idea of MMOing.

The grinding was less than most Korean MMOs but there was nothing different in this game. Nothing that stood out.

I'll pass on this game but I am not saying it is a bad game. Just uninteresting. Maybe I'm just not giving it a chance. Dunno.

I thought it was lots of fun.
Yes it the same old quests like in wow or any other mmo on earth, but its the first asien style mmo that is quest driven and that is ALOT.
I love the asien style and graphics but every mmo from there was grind on the same mob for hours then go to ther next lvl mob and do the same thing again.

This at least has lots of quests and fast lvling or what we EU/US players call normal lvling

And the flying and flying combat is a nice touch which makes the whole game unique. It adds another dimension into the game while you are pve or pvping (or pvpve ).

I already preordered it.

And there are cutscene which drive forward the story in the game which is nice if you dont want to read the wall of text in the quests

if you love the asien style but cant stand the grind in those mmos then this is the mmo for you.
They took the best things from the western market mmos and mixed it with the best things from eastern market mmos and added their own touch to it and created Aion

Yeah and it will be very polished when its released more than any other mmo because we are getting the patched version from asia where they have been playing since november 2008

No it isnt
I have played tons of korean grind mmos and this isnt one.
This is like WoW, War, EQ2 or AoC.

You lvl through doing quests not grinding the same mob

Indeed, lvling is through quests and not a pure mob grind to lvl.

Took me 4 days to get to lvl 20, which is close to halfway to the lvl cap.

And I agree, there's nothing really new about the game, but what is does do, it does well.
