Ant yes it is. The biggest problem with AoC (apart of the lack of content and broken ass shit at launch) is that it will make you HATE every other MMO out there with a passion.
Once you try its control/movement/combat scheme, it will become painfully obvious how horrible movement is in every other MMO out there (including GW2) and the only one that has it is horribly, horrbly broken in every other respect.
Also the architecture is not oversized like in EVERY SINGLE OTHER MMO out there. Seriously what the fuck? Is every single MMO world populated by invisible giants who built everything???
This is what hurt me most about AoC. The core concepts in the game are unmatched in any MMO today, yet they failed so hard with the content...
