nope.. what you're gonna do is download the client, install it, launch it and play the queue waiting game for ~4 hours, get  a black screen when it's your turn in the queue, see nothing or actually get in game for 15 mins and then get kicked for no apparent reason and then....

Play the F2P queue waiting game again  :P
Cheers and Good Game

Well I already had the game downloaded but I have been waiting in the queue for 4 hours. This is worse than Rift was that is true.

Well I got to play last night after waiting 6 hours in the queue and I have to say so far I am not impressed. The gameplay is very basic and boring and maybe this is just the starting area but the A.I. seems pretty stupid too, you attack one person or creature in a group and the others just ignore you. The Quest system would have been passable in 2005 or so but is very dated now but at least the quests are well grouped so they flow naturally from one to another. I haven't even delved into Crafting or Farming or anything else so maybe the game will redeem itself in these areas.

Yep, they have fully admitted to some massive queue issues and are working to resolve this. This 4h queue is also applied to those who forked out for the premium accounts which should give preferential line jumping. Since FTP side came out I havent been able to play cos I get through the 4h wait only to find I have to head to bed :(

The start area is super easy to introduce you to the game and ease you into playing. You also have around 100 odd different class builds you can go etc... Around lvl 20 then the mobs become far harder and you are glad for the individual pulling. This is a game that grows in as it introduces you to the rest of the game such as crafting (21 options of crafting of which you can specialise in 5) framing, trade runs, pvp, and much more.

dl;dr - there is a large amount to this game than what is shown in the first few levels. lvl 12 is where you start to get drawn into the game with farming, trade runs, crafting etc :)

have to admit i didnt like the game at first. it is growing on me though. Almost lvl 11 and i'm at Anvilton so i guess im just about to start the crafting side of the introduction...guessing first 20 levels are for that (10 fighting and learning UI and 10 crafting....and more possibly)
Cheers and Good Game

I will also try and find some decent sites that explain all the Trade Skill, builds etc as it is a surprisingly detailed and in depth game with many many more layers than any MMO i have played except EVE.
