Dang.... they really are trying to get people back to it without shutting it down.

IMO The downfall of that was the monthly fee. There are VERY few games people would be willing to pay for on a monthly basis. I'm not quite sure why WoW worked so well - may it is because Blizzard actually invests time and effort into making sure that peoples $15/mo isn't wasted?

After spending 6 months on AOC and getting my character up to level 75 (pre 1.05 patch) I can tell you that the downfall for me with that game was...

- NOT the graphics
- NOT the setting
- NOT the combat (although therer were OP caster issues)
- NOT performance
- NOT the engine
- NOT pricing

It was...

- the COMMUNTIY itself. The community (in general of course) is terrible and is full of asshats and griefers.

The only way I'd go back was if they offered a free month to non-subscribers so that I could see how the big revamp changed things. Aside from that, I would not play for 96 cents.

Cheers!

I only made it to level 20 myself. The graphics were awesome, and I liked how you actually do something to fight but the gameplay in general didnt do it for me and I dint know anyone in the game so it was kinda boring.

that's right, kinda hard to meet people, other players were either affraid of you or trying to kill so you can't talk to them. O and I almost forgot the lvl 20 who was waiting the lvl 8 in the sand.... can't remember the name. BUT the graphics were really nice.
