[NCsoft] Aion wins the Best Korean Game of the Year 2008; Korean Beta Test Records - Page 2

post #11 of 19
I cannot wait for this game.

First of all, whomever said this is a WoW clone couldn't be more wrong. Read more on the game mechanics and you'll understand why. In addition, there is the option to use click to move, to whomever asked.

I'm making a Ranger, and it's gonna be great :0

I've been playing L2 on and off since Chronicle 3. Mostly private servers, but some retail play also. It's gotten old for me, and really a grind.

Depends on what you are talking about. I found L2 to be way better in all ways over WoW except one, the grind. As for taking #1 from WoW, I doubt it... but WoW won't be around forever. It's already becoming quite old.

After playing L2 for so long I'm not too crazy about trying to become closer to WoW. I prefered Lineage 2's completely open world with no loading zones. I also love the L2 completely open pvp system, it really weeds out the carebears. But can you blame NCSoft for trying to appeal to the Western culture by mimicking some WoW stuff? The Western culture is completely different from the Asian culture. Naturally they want to appeal to both cultures at the same time.

Tell me how many Korean's play WoW...

If WoW wasn't so... what's the word I'm looking for here... childish, then maybe I would have played it.

Oh, Edit: Count me in for the AION launch. I'm really looking forward to this. I love NCSoft's style, and making it less of a grind to appeal to us makes it really worthwhile.

WoW does have loading screens, but only for instances and switching in between continents so large that even a single one dwarfs any other game in the genre.

I guess its cultural differences, but the concepts that make up most korean MMOs don't even qualify as gaming for me. WoW can be a chore sometimes, but honestly playing Korean MMOs actually feels like work for me.

If making the UI actually usable, and hopefully working (you'd be surprised how often this is overlooked), and incorporating controls that don't feel like you're playing starcraft, along with the ability to actually make your character move where you want it to is making it more Western then there is seriously something wrong with the east.

NCsoft has reported that Lineage had at one point more than three million subscribers,[1] most of them in Korea. - Wiki

That's nowhere near the most popular.

I think he meant most popular of all time as in "besides WoW" hahah.


Besides WoW it is, it's had the most subscribers vs time.

They are referring to the original Lineage, which at some point was the most played online game, period. This was before WoW came out of course.
