AO Shadowlands Pay Beta

FilePlanet is now offering their paid subscribers the chance to participate in beta testing of Anarchy Online: Shadowlands, offering a gargantuan 1 GB download of a full beta client, or a svelte (by comparison, at least) 430 MB upgrade for those who already have the AO client installed.

Just curious, have any of you guys played past level 100?

AO is now a Solid, reletively stable MMO with good uptime and relitively good customer support. The comunity is good, the chat system works well and if you are in a large and active guild then you almost always have the option to do one of the many things in this game.

And by many things I mean Mission with, or without a full time doc. Either one, talk about variety! I got to admit, my main character is Barely level 157, and is in fact a Doctor (Chlamydia is her name for those of you that maybe play RK1, tho I haven't logged in in a few months...) But aside from either camping a spawn or missioning, there is very little to do. Now when you are gaining lower levels out the wazoo leveling is fun, but at a certain point you are no longer trying to squeez into good equipment, or cast the best nano's, so you lose all motivation to play.

AO is a boring boring game past level 130, Content is simply not there and what content there is usually consists of camping an NPC or running missions.

In AO you spend your early days trying to figure out the convoluded and unforgiving implant / skill system. and in the later days you are simply to bored to care anymore.

with the Implants and such the framework for variation IS in place so Shadowlands may be promissing. But as of yet the game hasn't done very much with it. Its all the same means to the same end. Of course, Im rather pesimistic anymore...
