I have the game installed at home with an account.  I'm just stuck at work.  Looking forward to giving it a whirl.

This torrent might have good speed (3.2 MByte/s - atleast from Sweden):

No, it's not a pain in the ass. It took me ten minutes to register and, eeeerrr, verify my age.

PS.
I don't think Chinese ID are illegal to spread, just unethical. Like many other countries' IDs, they're just numbers computed from birthdate, birth place, gender and so on. Not sure however, so at your own risk. why so serious?

Good find!

Any idea how long this is going on for? I won't be home much until after Sunday and am hoping it's not just a weekend stress test

My installer seems to have frozen. The progress bar is full, but it won't do anything from there. Clicking the one available button, it seems to be asking me if I want to cancel the installation.

Has anyone had this and resolved it?

This is rather strange. It seemingly won't accept any name I try. They're all illegal or taken. Is there a trick to it?

But I'm loving the character generation smiley

It has (lots of!) sliders that do meaningful stuff. Unlike those in say, Oblivion. I can get my toon just ugly enough without having to go full retard.

Server Name: Taranis - Faction: Asmodian - Region: Whatever the first one on the list is when you first install the game
Our server for Elysia will be on a North China server - to change that, when you get to the patcher, under where it says Aion on the left, there are two chinese words in blue text. Click the lower one, and you'll get the blue box again. Choose the SECOND one down, and login.
Server: Azariel - Faction: Elysian

After choosing it once, it is not letting me change it.

There is absolutely nothing compelling about this game other than it's prettier looking than WoW. Not one tenth as pretty as Blade & Soul. It really serves no purpose. NCSoft is weird.

I'll find out soon enough, I'm patching it on a vista computer right now.  It might be shit, but as much as I loved L2 I have to give it a shot.

10 years after EQ, part of me could still accept, appreciate and be fascinated by dikus. I came from a time were fantasy was A to attack and R to run, so the grind, repetition and lack of dynamism never really bothered me that much.

Aion, I still think it'll be a very good diku experience, and I'll probably spend a very good amount of time there. I put "my money" on it as a commercial success and despite being, once again, THE turd with a different polish, I am ok with it. Hell, I still watch lots of animes, I know a lot about decorating turds.

But tonight, Aion left me empty cause for the first time EVERYTHING bothered me. Demon's Souls changed my perception of videogames. Maybe it won't last, maybe it's just like when you are so much in love with someone that you forget you don't do monogamy, but today Aion got slaughtered by Demon's Souls and all the little sweet warm things it did to me.

I was there, with my brand new Aion character, wielding this cute big sword, and feeling the total lack of control over her...

I felt unimpressed and empty.  Ohhhhh, I see.

Supposedly the endgame is focused on PvPvE rather than just raiding.

Is that the technical term for being ganked while killing an NPC?

From what I understand the best endgame PVE stuff needs PVP stuff to happen.  Or something like that.
