Worth playing: Yes, if you can avoid the couple stupid people on the game's forums. They yell really loud, but don't represent the majority of the players.
Game direction: what do you mean? It is being redeveloped by aT Games, soon going to be F2P with optional subsrciption-based unlocks later. It's currently at an end-game stage, and will be reset to a blank universe in the next few months.
I've personally been playing it for about 6 years now, and I like it more then any of the similar games. I like to glorify it a bit, but the original developers left the game half-finished with a lot of bugs and half installed systems. hopefully aT wil be fleshing it out, but only time will tell.

There was a battle in the heavens, the foundations of space quaked. At the end of the day there was silence, but no winner. The space gods were gone.

My #1 Immersion breaker ss skill gains. Most everything else I let slide due to MMO context, but skill gain is HUGE for me. 99% of the MMOs I see use a points based system. I prefer an experience based system, where a skill being used gets better.
I mean come on, when was the last time you honestly thought using a "sword strike" to take out aout 250 mobs and getting no better at that one skill, but then using the knowledge gained from that to improve your shield smash ability was in any was realistic? If it was "I just struck these guys 250 times with a sword i got better at it, and maybe using a shield offensively can help" that would be perfectly fine.
As far as armor goes, it should be directly proportional to the amount of defense needed. Mail and plate style armors should cover most skin, but it can be female shaped. Lether armors should be more forgiving, lether isn't gonna stop much anyway so showing some skin isn't a crime. Cloth should be completely free to do whatever as cloth is even more useless then lether.
Other things I've seen up there are shields not stopping any fom of attack, invisible walls, improper loot for a type of mob, crafted equips being useless, cash shops, and way off-key names like "my _little_pony_hax_all_your_base_are_belong_to_us_now_", no death penalty,
