well once you get over the center mouse wheel camera movement, the game gets kind of fun, especially 1-15lv.

its more or less click and swing and click and cast gameplay, which is ok, except when you have multiple targets, forget selecting the right one... aside from that the gameplay is fun.

the biggest problem i had was the community and drops.

the community is like a brick wall, you can see it there, you know its there, but ask a question and youll get nothing.  It wasnt dead either, plenty of chatting going on around me, but for the simplest questions, you wont get any help, aside from striking up a conversation, which never happend, as much as i tried.

the drops are what lead me to eventually quit.  it was great from levels 1-10, getting all sorts of drops with various stats on it, like hitting the loot jackpot every now and then.  At level 10 you get a "event" set of equipment, which rocks compared to what you have before it.  From lv10-15 i started to notice that, while im killing harder mobs, that im not actually getting any diffrent equipment than if i where killing lv 5 mobs, was strange but i payed no attention to it, i had that awesome lv10 set still working.

Fast forward to level 30, im still in my lv10 set, ive spent tons of money upgrading it, all because when i kill level 28 mobs i get the same stuff i was getting back at level 1.  I was even kiling bosses, only to get hp potions that i stopped using at level 15.  Very dissapointing, since my lv10 gear was becoming quite useless against the increasing difficulty of mobs.

I may have had to motive to keep on going, but with the tight nit community ignoring me, and the fact that im grinding for lv 1-7 gear at 30 really turned me off. i kept trying to ask the community in town for advice or input, like does the equipment change per map not per mob, but again, i had the brick wall effect, they just kept talking among themselvs and never noticed my question.  Even when i said "free gear and scrolls im quitting" not a single person aknowleged it, or ran over saying "oooh me" like in most games.
