    I don't know if chars survive, I chose a different server in the second beta I was in and created new toons. If there's another beta next weekend, I'll try checking the same servers again.

    Characters should survive till the end of closed beta but it's not guaranteed.

    Ah, I see! That's cool, that means I've got 4 chars over 10 that I can use this coming weekend. Although it's a busy weekend, so I'm probably not going to get anywhere near the Abyss.

    So, Templar, Spirit Master or Cleric? Hmmm....

    Sorry if this is a really dull question, but:

    Going by the screenshots, it looks like this needs a fairly beefy PC to get the best out of it. I'm thinking of getting a new PC at the moment, so it'd be really handy if some people can post their PC specs and what sort of performance they're getting, 'cos that might well factor into what I buy. Ta.

    Haven't the makers said that the game is made to the same system specifications as WoW and doesn't actually need a beefy PC to run well?

    Really? If so, that's awesome: I've run WoW in the past on some pretty low-spec machines (though it was much nicer on a high-spec one). But this looks to me like it's pushing many more polys. Anyone who's running it want to comment?

    yorkie: I believe Aion runs on a range of machines from high to low. I've got a friend with a fairly mid-range rig and a high-performance one and I've watched Aion on both of those, he's had no trouble at all.

    I don't know if this helps but here's some actual footage of the flight system - http://www.spooncraft.com/aion/aion-flight-primer-v20/

    It shows off the graphics quite nicely. Not sure what rig the guy's running it on though.

    That's great news if its not a rig hog on specs. More people will be able to play the game hassle free. Can't wait to try this out and see if it goes where. :)

    I definitely agree with you there KonZ3N. I like eyecandy but I also think that having a mid-range pc able to run a game is very important since a lot of the people I know still don't have uber-rigs.

    So got the Key from Eurogamer, downloaded the beta client from the site provided, installed, registered and then been told that the beta is not avaiable in my country (UK)... what's that all about?

    Open Beta starts on the 6th, so you will have to wait until then I imagine.

    I was told that, the beta runs for a week from 6th, wouldn't be available before then.
    On another note... where do you get the key from eurogamer?

    Did you contact NCSoft or Eurogamer for that matter?

    I didn't contact anyone, it's down to the fact that the beta doesn't start until tonight. They just send out a badly worded email when you register that suggests you can start playing right away.

    The Open Beta launch has been delayed apparently? At least thats what a lot of very confused people on the NCSoft forums seem to be saying...

    This isn't bad by any means. Looks fantastic.

    Some nice art direction and ideas. I really like the fact you can set up all the shit you want to sell to other players in your own private store. You drop all the stuff into the store inventory set a sales message and press start then your avatar starts yelling from its own little chair with a banner. Like a car boot sale with more asian sluttyness.
