    Ive been following this thread for a few days, and i'm getting interested in this game. For the type of MMO it is, is it closer to WoW or Warhammer? NC says its a PvPvE game so does that mean in between WoW or Warhammer so to speak?

    Reason i'm asking is because i'm more of a PvE kinda person than PvP

    Hey all

    Just pre-ordered my copy off NCsoft.com
    $59.95US (72$AUD) for the collectors edition. Dont even bother going to EB games and paying $120AUD for it.

    Next weekend closed beta event cannot wait!

    Anyone know if you pre-order, do you automatically receive the bonus items in game or do you get extra codes that you activate ingame/onsite?

    If you purchase from NCsoft there is no shipping, its all online. Think Steam, they have a very similar system.

    Help please in joining the beta weekends

    Hi all, This game looks great but I am hitting wall in trying to get on the beta weekend events. Tried pre-ordering the Collectors edition from EB games but they have not got the preorder packs with the codes for the beta events yet & they dont know when they will be available, despite there web site saying all ready to go.
    Did anybody else have problems and how did they get around it.
    Thanks all, see you in game.

    Hey Wrath,

    You definitely after the included extras in the Collectors pack? I ordered myne from NCsoft.com which will give me access to closed beta (one coming up this weekend!). The only difference is i dont get the box extras, but i still get all the in game additional components. OH it also saves me $50AUD :)

    Ill definitely be posting up some pictures / info relating after the beta weekend :) cant waitttt

    Buying off NCSoft is digital only. You won't get a box. The digital collectors edition will give you the items but no dvd/figure/book.

    EDIT: No manual that I have seen in the beta. But the package contents for the release game mentions a manual.

    are you with Telstra? I downloaded the Beta client (which will turn into release client i believe) from gamearena.com.au (11meg patch installed after) and didnt use any limit.

    A question to those who pre-ordered from EB, what does it actually say on your receipt for the game's title? Just want to confirm I pre-ordered the right edition. :lol:

    Also has anyone got their beta packs?

    Trying to download Aion

    I just tried that & it appears brocken because all it downloads is the file
    AionFullInstaller_FP but none of the 6.13gb of the program.
    It would have been great cause i,m with westnet & its a free download (does not add to my quota)
    Where else could I get it, hopefully for free.
    Just had a call from EB games & they say the collectors pre order boxes have been sent & should be there on Wednesday.
    Thanks all.:(
