Hey, I'm new to these forums and kind of late to post on this topic but I found you guys through searching for more info on Auto Assault.
I was thinking about buying it but after seeing how few subscribers there are I'm pretty wary now.
I'm a veteran Guild Wars/Factions player (5 fully maxed out toons) and was looking for a change of pace... I got City of Villains on clearance for $9.99 at my local Micro Center last weekend and although I really like it, I was saying to myself "wow where are all the people?" It's nowhere near as crowded as Guild Wars. On the plus side, it seems people on CoV are a lot more friendly and helpful to newbies than on Guild Wars (where I was lost in the wilderness for months until I found a good guild). Of course it helps that the controls for CoV are kind of similar to GW so I appear semi-competent right off the bat
So after that positive experience on CoV I thought about AA until I saw it has only 10% of the subscribers of CoV! It would be hella odd, going from Guild Wars with a miliion plus players and servers hopping 24/7, to a game with only 10K people. However, I will still probably buy it if it continues to flop and Micro Center eventually starts selling it too for $10 (or maybe even lower like Lineage II, which I got for $3 there and haven't even opened the box). Unfortunately as of now AA is still $50. But I like the idea of the whole game being merged to just one server.
