Great game, need a good system for decent performance though.

Definatly worth the investment and the monthly fee as it will only improve. There is definatly a bright future for this game.
The community seems to be more mature than WoW and the game is certainly more intricate.
Be sure that you have a computer that can handle the game as it is pretty demanding to get decent performance (I imagine this will come down as the game matures due to code optimization)
There seems to be a good ecomomy (so far at least) and the 3 spheres of gameplay (adventuring, crafting and diplomacy) ensure that you will never get bored.
