Anyone play any MMORPG out there? I've recently started playing Age of Conan again. And even though Dragon Age has hindered me from playing anything else for almost a week now, I'm glad that I chose AOC over the others MMORPGs out there...It's just more mature than most others.
Currently Im playing Aion: The tower of Eternity and its a pretty awesome game. I moved to the game from Warhammer for balanced PVP and I didnt get that but at least its not nearly as bad as WAR was when I left.
The problem with Aion PVP right now is theres almost no control for it. You can be a level 50 assassin and gank people as low as 25 and theres no penalty. At least with Warhammer they split the zones up every 10 levels instead of tossing you into one area with everyone else and there was the chicken debuff (if you attacked someone under your teir you were turned into a chicken and could be 1 shot by any enemy).
Fortress and keep raids work much better and are much more involved then warhammer though. They go through 2 hour timers where they are vulnerable and invulnerable which is a mixed blessing. On one had you know when a raids going to happen but on the other hand your enemy does too. It also makes it so you cant immediatly take a fortress back by just killing the fortress lord. On top of that fighting the fortress lord is a massive raid attempt needing at least 40 people but it has the feel of the old Everquest raiding that its an epic and difficult encounter.
As for other MMOs Everquest, WoW and Warhammer were the only ones I played for any length of time but Ive tried a slew of others and eventually given them up for one reason or another.
