Greetings people of planet earth. I, Koopa, have come to reveal my honest view of AA thus far.

 

What you are about to behold is.... an opinion.

 

 

 

Leveling my first char from 1-50 was mostly a bland experience despite being a challenge to solo, but it did have moments of interest. However, I never really caught wind of the actual story/lore as I was in a rush to see the glorious sandbox that awaited me post-max level. This sandbox, thus far, is nowhere to be found. What I currently see is another immensely vast grind to attain anything that is advertised to make the game appear as the ultimate sandbox experience.

 

It is like being a Window Shopper, walking around and looking at all of those nice things that you will never have the cash to afford or time to acquire.

 

One of the most disappointing things I came upon after reaching level 50 were the dailies. I died a little inside when I realized that the currency(Gilda Stars) required to enjoy this ultimate fantasy sandbox game would mostly rely on daily quests to be completed. Daily quests can turn an MMO into a job void of any enjoyment.

 

Ultimately, a lot of my gripe with AA is a result of patch 1.0 and beyond.

 

 

 

Welp, that's all folks! I still have hope that Trion can turn this game into a ground-breaking, revolutionary MMO for us Westerners.
