I think that albion online is a great game
Please explain how WoW is P2W? Last I checked, and I'm playing it, all the most powerful gear is still, as it always has been, only available by playing the game, not buying it.
You can't bunch reaching max level, and gearing up together though since reaching max level in just about any RPG doesn't mean squat without gear, right? Which is earned in most games by going out and killing stuff, challenging content, reaching hard to get achievements, that sort of thing. So for example WoW lets you now buy a service that lets you level up instantly to X level. Is that pay to win? I don't think so because you still have to go PVP or PVE to get gear. And the best gear is not something you can buy with gold. So paying to accelerate is only getting you so far and then you need to earn the rest.
You're not the only one from that time. But you gotta take into your view that not everyone has vast amounts of time for gaming. People have jobs, family, and other activities they'd like to have a life for without going full blown no-life mode to reach and participate in endgame activities. So I'm not bothered in the slightest if I spend 20 hours to reach max level and someone else spends $50. I saved $50 and they got to join me with their disposable income which helps support the game we both are having fun playing.
Well you can get into the game on your own but its almost guaranteed to meet people in albion online because almost all guilds require voice communication so chances are if you join one you wont be alone anymore and YES there are guild politics but im not active enough at the moment to tell you about that but YES definately a big thing that is lol as far as interation, this game is literally garanteed to get you to know people lol.
Frozen conquest I left awhile ago..I couldn't keep up with all the moving and stuff and then I had to join a diff guild because they said it had too many people that weren't active..And man I can't wait till the game releases either.
