Hi Stone, I am actually a player way back 2008 and came back around 2 months ago. If you ask the game if it changed? Yes and No. Yes because the level cap is now 90, when the last time I played it was 79. But the gameplay is still the same, and there are only minor changes. Is is active? Yes, plenty of people are raiding and nova is always populated with sellers and bystanders. The one thing that I observed is that the game is now hugely pay to win. When i played a decade ago, for four years I played with only one character (protector), and despite the length of time i played with it, i never get to unleash it full potential bec of the difficulty of obtaining the best gears. Now? With only a month of play, i was able to meta my mew protector (darkest and leg equips, jewels all +30), it was really OP.. and it was bec of the availbility of equips if u are willing to spend the money. Gone are the days of hard grinding and raiding... if you have the $$$, you can meta all classes in less than a month..
I would say that try playing again.. i was hooked again not bec it is the best mmorpg, but bec of nostalgia mainly.. and as of the moment i am enjoying it.
