I put $5 down on AION to get a dvd case with a beta key last week. Went back after downloading the OB client from file planet, added the beta key to my existing PlayNC master account, then went back & canceled the pre order and picked up Batman: Arkham Asylum.
Was not impressed with the second closed beta test of AION (friends CE acct) however, the newest patch notes may have cleared up some gripes I had with movement and rampant rift ganking (while testing other classes).
So hopefully this beta test changes my mind. I haven’t been in a MMO for 9 months. Kind of fiending for PvP!
