Graphics went through a major overhaul about a year ago. It took them a few months to get it done and rolled out, but the end result was impressive. AoC is looking pretty good in DX10. I play the game maxed out with a Nvidia 580 3gb. Before the 580 I was using a HD4850 512mb and with that card I could only run the game in DX9 with a lot of the video options dialed back. The game still looked very good even though I had to compromise visual quality and draw distance for acceptable FPS.

With the 580 I can max out the game no problem in DX10 with constant FPS in the 50s and 60s The lighting is a high point of the visuals, so is the motion quality of everything in the game , your character, your mount, NPCs, everyone has a smooth realistic quality to their movements. Then the attention to detail of the natural environments, rivers, trees, mountains, etc., draws me into the game as well. Armor is well detailed  too.

So the game is looking great! even the haters have to admit to that much. Just need the rig to run it like it was meant to be run.

The games graphic is a lot smoother than it was at launch. There isn't much to be worried about. Like people mentioned load up the game and just give it a try. There are some custom settings you can do with graphics from video drivers that will also work with the game.

ATM some players complain about a lag problem, I don't have it myself but I hardly play and only log in to do some F2P once in a while.

There's few players and few groups going around, but it's still possible to play the game on EU Crom atleast. There's not been much content lately, probably because of TSW and now the company is almost bankrupt and had to fire people. We dont know how this has affected the AOC team.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results.

You know it has a free to play option now you can just go log in.  If you have a bunch of alts expect some of them to be locked. I am just saying it would be a lot easier to log in and check it out for yourself instead of getting everybody elsees view on it as most folks have different takes.
