    Yeah, it really does look amazing. Dont you need beta keys to play though? if so, where did you get it?

    I also heard you still need a cdkey for the open beta, but didn't look into it a ton. I'm happy with CO, but wouldn't mind trying this if I can.

    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!

    About Aion, this games graphics and artwrok quality is simply 1st class.
    I am actually palying a level 33 Ranger on the Taiwanese servers.

    The first 20 level in this game is a breeze, but once you reach around lv 30 life gets tough.
    Its hard to endure the grind fest on the mid-30s if you are not used to Korean styke of game play. (Lineage II)

    I also played a Gladiator to lv 29 and a Spiritmaster to lv 25 during the Taiwanese close Beta.
    Most of the fun comes when you are lv25 and reach the Abyss, that is where all the PVP/Ganking/Gibbing takes place :nutkick:
    Also the Abyss features more upbeat battle BGMs.

    The onky issue with Aion right now, is that it seems to have memory overflow problems which causes the game to error.
    This is most evident in siege battles.

    from my understanding you can participate in the open beta if you have an ncsoft account. I personally had just created one with no problems. As an update the open beta goes live in 40 minutes... hope to see you all online.

    So is this an Open Beta, or a Closed Beta on larger scale (where keys are exclusive).

    it's an Open beta. Can get a key i think just by creating an NCsoft account and dling the client. I had pre-purchased so i'm already in..

    Major problem right now...TONS of lag...

    other than that a lot of fun IMO.

    Yes Aion is a great game for the first 20~25 levels depends on class.
    After lv 30.... It starts to get grindy.

    Especially I am a Ranger... So I go whe way of the Tigger :respect:
    Jump Shot to ifinity and beyond! :nutkick:

    This beta is so far uber terrible as far as lag is concerned...I played WoW in both Closed and Open beta and it never lagged this bad.

    I didn't realize it looked so asian, I know it's a more asian mmo, but thought it got away from that a bit.

    Played on 3 CBs so i'm not playing in the OB as i'll just be re-doing everything again which may make the launch grind a little taxing...

    here are some SS from the previous CB on my templar:

    NCsoft have said that they'll be doing a lot of backend testing for load levels throughout the beta so they're using this as a stress test (expect lag to come and go as they adjust resource allocation to different areas of the game).
