I played this game since launch (more than 10 months) I reached Level 50 (max level at this moment).

The latest updated just killed all of leveling progresses. Levequest become worthless.

Only endgame players can play the game now, New players can not play at all, You can't start the game and join any large guild on the server because they're not friendly to new players and you'll never be able to do the mid-game or endgame contents if you don't have a good guild.

The same old issues still left unfix. Horrible UI, Action Bars, No Jumping, No Mounts, No Auction House, Bad Repairing system, Copy & Paste maps.

The game's head producer had mentioned in several interview that they'll make the game more friendly to the main audience but what they did is absolutely opposite! the latest update is nothing close to the main audience, The game become a niche market game like Final Fantasy XI.

Don't waste your time and money for this game. Unless the next update change something.
