I have played this. While the social aspects of the game are great, there are alot of things i do not like.
The game is a grind fest. Lack of quests (mostly at higher levels) makes the game a huge grinding fest. Dailys are boring and the same for five levels. You can do quests for the knight regiment, but you have to sit there and ask for a quest, refuse, ask again for a half hour to an hour to get a good one worth doing. Most times he will offer quests below your level with far too less of a reward or a quest far too hard that can only be done with a group.
Crafting is a joke. You fail 75% of the time and you lose ALL the material. The only way to ensure success is with potions from the item mall. Having to buy a potion for each item you craft. The potion only works for one crafted item. Even if you get to high level crafting the does not change.
The game focuses alot on couples. Couples have to quest together to get special points in order to get new emotes and eventually get married. While you can have more than one soul mate, it is hard to quest with each of them in order to gain the benifits from the system for each person. Most of the time you wind up focusing on one soul mate and thus spend most of your game time grinding with that person in order to gain the benifits of the social system.
There is far too little in the actual game. Most (but not all) good items, special potions, rewards, mounts, outfits, etc come from the item mall only. Sure you can buy alot of them from players but don't look to be able to afford any of it till you are over level 50 as it will cost you millions.
The monsters and mobs in the game seem the same. You basicly fight the same mobs from lvl 1 to lvl 40, from 40 to 50, etc... there is no diversity in the mobs. Most of them are the same mob just a different name.
The game has a great appeal at frist and the social system is pretty cool. But in the long run after grinding the same quests over and over and over, it becomes a boring hassle.
These are just a few things, though i can name a whole lot more that is wrong with the game, but i don't want to get into a long drawn out article.
