    Commented subject is this game worth my time?.

    You will need at least a week, perhaps even two if you're unwilling or unable to commit the time to regularly check in and recruit troops. I state that categorically as power-level in this game hinges almost entirely on your army composition and numbers; upgrading a building typically results in a power increase of anywhere from 1 to 5 points. Completing research often yields no increase whatsoever. Quests, resource-harvesting and event activities also have no effect. You must recruit troops, regularly and reliably if you seek to increase your power... while doing your utmost to avoid antagonizing anyone as a raid by superior foes can easily rob you of hundreds if not thousands of power in a moment.

    Depending on the extent to which you've upgraded your barracks, checking in can range from recruiting roughly 60 troops from each of the five buildings every 40 minutes for a power-increase of nearly 3.5k total, to recruiting nearly 180 every 1 hour and 45 minutes for a power-increase of roughly 8.3k total. You can do the math: it takes a looooooong time to hit one-million. My only advice is: spend your gold coins and use every recruit-timer advance item at your disposal; you will acquire more of each merely by exploring the map and engaging in PvE combat encounters.

    You can easily complete the second task in tandem with the first (I actually overshot it considerably on my way toward one-million power as your power level will increase significantly faster by recuiting higher-tier troops, which necessitates you acquire a higher-level townhall in order to upgrade your barracks, etc), but that's somewhat beside the point: to answer your query directly, I would second Pperic's response. There are better games, dozens of which are exceedingly similar and, in certain cases, superior. Try it if you can spare the time and are willing to wait for the gems but, otherwise, you're better off playing something else...

    The original iteration of AION, The Tower of Eternity, was quite bland when compared against its primary western counterpart (World of Warcraft) yet offered a unique aesthetic and several novelty features such as flight that allowed it to garner a decent playerbase. That wasn't enough to save it in the long run, though, as it eventually went F2P.

    In that respect, I support the assertion of your thread: AION IS VERY CLOSE TO BEING A PERFECT EXAMPLE... of a Free-to-Play game.

    The original "Truly Free" version by NCSoft, anyway. It launched with all content, including unrestricted access to raids and dungeons, player housing, mounts, etc, that a paying-player/subscriber would enjoy. Better yet, the "premium" shop boasted EXCLUSIVELY cosmetic items: alterations to the appearance of your wings, mounts and heaps of clothing. No stat boosts, no "actual" gear, no XP boosters or quest-skipping/fast-travel items, nothing that provided a tangible benefit for those with extra cash.

    It was fabulous! AION truly was the pinnacle of MMOs.

    ...sadly, that era didn't linger: publishers realized that the goodwill of their entire playerbase was worth substantially less than persuading a few hundred-thousand of 'em to fork over a few dollars and, of course, let's not forget the whales they all sought. Mobile gaming took off shortly thereafter and "microtransactions" (particularly for convenience features) became the norm.

    Today, even with the numerous expansion packs, varied content and such, AION is showing its age. The combat mechanics are genuinely archaic when compared against something like Black Desert, the graphics pale against UE4 technology and the overall quest-structure/mechanics remain largely unrefined since its inception.

    AION is stil a decent game and, in its own right, a hallmark of the MMORPG genre. Like Ultima Online and Everquest, however, despite their contributions to the form, they no longer represent what MMOs should aspire to become...
