Smite - Free To Play.

Smite is a 3D fantasy MOBA where players take on the role of mythological gods and battle in team-based arenas. Unlike other MOBAs, SMITE puts you directly onto the battlefield with a third-person action viewpoint. From blind-side ambushes to aimed shots, a new pantheon of strategic possibilities awaits.  Become a legend of myth, enter the Battleground of the Gods, and play FREE now!

Game Modes:
Conquest – the main 5v5 game mode. Features three lanes and a jungle area filled with neutral monsters. Arena – a 5v5 game mode with an open battle area rather than lanes. Each team begins with 500 points and must reduce the other side's to zero by killing heroes, minions, and escorting allied minions to portals. Joust – a 3v3 game mode with a single lane which otherwise plays like Conquest mode. Joust can also be played 1v1. Assault – similar to ARAM (All Random, All Mid) in LoL, players are assigned a random God and fight on a map with a single lane. Siege – a faster version of Conquest. Siege mode consists of only two lanes and contains a special Siege Juggernaut minion that deals extra damage to structures.
Never played a battle arena before? Don’t worry. Auto-buy, auto-level, and the deathmatch-like Arena mode let you jump right into divine MOBA action. Aspiring pro? Top the ladders, join a competitive team, and you too could be playing at the SMITE World Championship.

I am interested, although wary due to how many eastern MMOs have tried and failed to make an appearance and last in the west.

I have some interest in this one as well... My only concern is that it is B2P, and they're asking for $40 minimum for the game.  I hesitate to spend $40 on a game that most reviewers are saying "we've seen this before".  According to most of the reviews from closed beta, they are saying that this game definitely has potential and has some very interesting concepts.  It is certainly possible that it will be a really fun game to play.  However, they usually temper their excitement with comments like:

"Astellia leaves you feeling like you’ve already played this game before…and we really have."
"There is no amount of storytelling that can explain how this makes sense."
"Every new game is fun for at least 3 days, but I don't know if this one will last beyond that."
"It is a very pretty game, but I don't think that is enough anymore."

After Bless Online, I am definitely wary of any Korean -> English conversion MMORPG.  So many titles have been ported over to USA, and so far all of them have fallen short of expectations.  Personally I am interested in Astellia Online, but not enough to drop $40 on it before I play it.  I'll probably wait to see how the reviews are for the first couple of weeks.

See now that is smart... That concept is made for people like me, because if I stick with the game 30-days I would be a lot more likely to buy it and keep playing.   $10 I can bet on a MMORPG.  I bet $10 on Steam games all the time.  If I only play it 10 hours and uninstall, I feel like it was worth my $10 to find out.  I wouldn't feel the same if I had paid $40,  but clearly they wouldn't care because they already had my money.

As the saying does - "Never pass up the chance to walk a mile in someone else's shoes.  That way you are a mile away, and you have their shoes." ;)

I'm not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing, but they just dropped the price down to $20 for the Early Access copy of the game.  So they dropped it to $30, and then put it on "sale" for $20...  It seems odd to drop the price right before launch. 

I'm still on the fence... I want to like it because I really miss having a "good MMO" to play.  However, there are definitely some red flags going up.

Is it still on sale for $20?  Where is it on sale?
