OBT started October 1, 2010 and I have been enjoying myself! It seems the game had a major face lift --- a few features where added --- it's now simpler to add friends; the graphics improved, the textures are much sharper and effects are better; a lot of quest bugs have been fixed too!
I'm still playing in Spain as "Aika" and my alternate is "Akira" (Isn't he dreamy).

Though there are still multi-boxers and gold sellers I guess this can't be avoided since I checked a gold sellers website and saw that they even support every major online games (WOW, FFXIV, Vindictus) so its up to the community actually if they would support this. But as a frequent visitor in the forums it seem the community is 100% against them.
I suggest people who were disappointed with CBT to give it a try again. There's a lot of major improvements; the only thing I disliked so far is game guard, it seems to block other apps. Well, that's its job anyway.
