Downloaded this game and thinking of giving it a try.

On the official forums they are saying the game is dying etc. etc.

Just wondering what people who are playing/have played think.

Is it worth investing time in?

How is the community?

Good server to choose?

Those are my questions.

Thanks much.

My recommendation is to play Age of Wulin instead if you really want to play this game.  From what I'm reading on their official site is that GPotato actually takes care of customer issues such as hacked accounts instead of just blaming the player.  Unfortunately AoW has a bad hacking issue, not sure if it's worse than other MMOs, but when Snail doesn't restore items it makes it worse.  I used to play on White Tiger in one of the biggest English speaking guilds and a lot of us quit after we got hacked without having our items restored.  It's just not worth it.

Not sure which server to recommend. I don't want to steer you towards a ghost town however Blue Dragon is supposedly decently populated though keep in mind it's filled with players who will have over a years worth of progression over you.  If you don't mind not having a chance to defend yourself when they decide to attack you other than run, then maybe you will like BD then.

The game overall is OK, but a niche within a niche, so it's up to you if you want to invest time into it.  A few here love it and believe it's the perfect game, but the best thing is just to play for yourself and see.  After all it's f2p so it cant hurt (except their cash shop).

The game is doing good. There tons of new players, you wont be alone. Put it like this guild war are 100+ v 100+ sometimes 200 v 200 depending on the importance. There are 4 or 5 guilds with 300+ people and lots of smaller guilds around 100 people. There is never a problem finding 28 man groups for the largest dungeons. 

 

The time I've invested in Wushu has to be the most rewarding experience I've had mmorpg. 1 year 2 months in, I have a completely unique character, I still haven't seen the entire map  and there is still a lot of things I want to do interms of character development. 

 

If you are here in the states, come on over to BlueDragon. It's the original server. It's a hell of a community. 

 

This being said, gold seller spam is still a problem. Wushu has a great chat system that lets you customize you chat screen, but it's still an unwanted hassle. You will see chat bubble billboards from gold selling sites. The report and block features are you friend. I also recommend setting up the Matrix security system. All in all, it's the best pvp mmorpg on the market with no competition.

 

Oh and Wushu has been approved for Steam Greenlight. The only question is when does it start. There will probably be an "expansion" in the next couple months, so look for a new server opening soon. Last thing, the poster above hasn't played the game for about 8 months to take his words with a grain of salt.

Thanks for the feedback guys.  I was maybe thinking of trying that new server that just opened, so I wouldn't be so far behind the curve.  Anyone have any experience on it?

When looking at server load ratings, it looks like GoldenKirin is the same level as BlueDragon and WhiteTiger. I haven't heard much from those guys on Kirin. Most the people who post on the forums are from BlueDragon.

I didn't care for the game but one piece of advice. Stick with the game for a couple weeks before you judge it and be ready to look up a lot of stuff on the internet because a lot of the translations are poor and confusing. Don't just get frustrated by the early issues and give up, give it a fair shot.

It was for a little bit. They were broken. I've been seeing a few more as of late. They have evolved... They are more of an eyesore than anything else.

Wasn't it just a year ago that this forum was filled with people talking about how revolutionary this game is, and how it's the ultimate sandbox?

Yep, its even more revolutionary now. Imo management has hurt western growth. China is a long way from Cali and it shows at times. 

 

New expansion next month, and finally we've gotten a late Feb-ish date for the steam release. Plus the 2nd $160,000 winner take all 1 v 1  invitational will be happening this spring.

I'll speak for Age of Wulin here.

Is it worth investing time in?

Of all the games I've played, AoW is the one that rewarded me the most for spending time in it. This game requires A LOT of time spend on it if you want to be part of the top echelons in the game world. You might not think this when you first start playing, but it becomes more and more apparent later on. Especially if you get involved in server politics.

Too much for me in fact, it was destroying my social life.

You need to realise though, that when you just start the game you will be at the bottom of a deep pit. Of course there will be people who are on the same level as you to fight and catching up is possible. But you'll need to climb a huge steep mountain to do so.

And be warned, there IS a pay 2 win aspect to this game. Laying down a pile of quid will help some to get ahead of everybody else much faster.

 

How is the community?

Well, it depends on your point of view. My answer would be: "The community is involved."

That does not mean "friendly" or "unhelpful" by itself. It means that there are a lot of rivalries, server politics, alliances, wars and KOS lists.

Sooner or later you will pick a side, whether you know it or not. That will likely lead to some people automatically being rude to you, while others will try to help you.

Like any game though, the community has both dicks and friendly people.

 

Good server to choose?

White lotus if you decide to play on the European Age of Wulin.

 

Feel free to use my referral link for SW:TOR if you want to test out the game. You'll get some special unlocks!

Please do note that if you have plans on starting on SnailUSA server for AoW. Get yourself mentally prepared to get hacked anytime depending on your luck even with secondary password function in place. And support in no any reason will compensate any lost gold to the victims of the hacking as they deem that as damaging the game economy. I have 4 seperate accounts being hacked and all taels stolen thruout the interval of 3 months. And some of my guild mates have been hacked 2 or 3 times on same account even thou they constantly change password. They have determination of an ox, for me i find playing a game where anytime u can lose everything ingame depending on your luck is the same as jumping into a crocodile infested swamp and expect to swim leisurely in there.

If you invest a lot of time in it - it will pay off.

Most MMOs are like this, if you really get into them you can get a lot of entertainment out of them.

One thing that I found a game-breaker for me was SnailGames, I have sadly no confidence in them anymore so I will not be stepping foot into AoW ever again.

Thanks for the further thoughts.  Have it on my PC but will put it on hold.  Started playing PoE which is great.  Will keep an eye out for the next expansion and maybe give it a whirl then.

It's one of the few good sandbox asides from EVE, really good combat for an MMO and graphics.

The flaws are the horrible PVE dungeons and the open world doesn't mean anything because you can teleport very easyly to events, cities, etc. unlike EVE Online or UO. 

You don't need exploring the world to advance because the PVE is instanced. The game needs daily team practiques that can be sometimes annoying.

Be prepared for a very long and frustrating learning curve.

I suspect more people give up and quit before they understand enough to have fun.

The game's website has a guides, and there are tutorials and walkthroughs in the game.   Sadly, they are not very effective.  "Red Paint wear khaki pants Toast!" might be an explanation for selecting the right meridians.

The in-game community is, at best, indifferent to helping out or lending a hand; at worst, nasty and rude.

Beyond the difficulty in understanding the game, it suffers from some translation issues as well as some features or interfaces components that seriously lack polish.

It's probably the best and greatest game I would strongly not recommend.

it is a very cash shop dependent game.. if you don't plan to pay then enjoy getting slaughter everywhere.  people kill low level to change their alignment and title~~

best kungfu are sold in cash shop plus ancient manuel, which are wroth 10d per move.  so a full set coster around 100D, 1D = 50 USD.

there are no level in this game, but instead you get internal skill.  the best internal skill are also for sale at "pray" event. it cost 20L(1/50 D) to pray, and you may get wishing knot. you will need about 8000 of them to get full set of best internal.  which is about.. 160D+..

so.. to be strong in this game you will need to spend roughly 300D.  which is around 1500usd.

 

p.s. if you willing to pay you can max level and everything in first day.. everything is for sale..

This. I even tracked down the fencing account used by my hacker, found most of my items, Snail still wouldn't do a single thing. AoW is a fun game, would be even better with proper translations, but Snail will never provide you customer service of any kind. Even if you do their job for them. I wish Trion had picked up this game instead of Archeage, it would have been a smash hit.
