Was able to purchase the game. Had a very slight problem with installation. But no queue at all when I got the chance to log on. Later on that evening there was a queue of ~600, but by then I had something else to do so it was okay. They gave an estimated time of 30 minutes, which for a new release I guess isn't so bad.
Great looking game. Runs smooth so far. If you've played WoW, etc. you'll be able to jump right into this game as well.
Disappointing to see the gold sellers. In the starter area you see as many Mxcxmsc's as regular players. And they whisper you. Do I really want someone selling me powerleveling services for a brand new game?
Did it make me feel like I did when I first played WoW. No. But that's really nothing to hold against Aion.
It's way to soon to pass final judgement. But I like it so far. I think I'll at least get my money's worth out of it.
