[PC Gamer] Age of Conan going F2P - Page 6

post #51 of 87
Honestly I think Free to Play ruins games. Because they add cash shops and such and it just ruins the game. If they add a subscription service like they do in runescape, where you can get extra content if you pay, then it will work. I wanted to try this game a few years ago but I didn't have the computer for it.

No, it doesn't ruin a game. Free people get the basic content, those who pay get more. It's quite simple. Just like MANY MANY MANY other services in the world. There's a free service, then the premium version of that service. Obviously the premium will more than likely be better.

The only drawback is the people who already bought the game, they're out whatever they paid for it originally.

Those who subscribe will feel no difference. Also the item market as of right now in Conan is things that yield no real advantage other than XP potions. Big deal, so you progress a bit quicker.

F2P is what Age of Conan really needs. It's a great change of pace MMO in the low-fantasy genre, rather than pretty colors with elves and faeries. Unfortunately a low player population is plagueing the game. Hopefully this F2P will bring in more players which will bring in more money so more content and more updates and more more more more more more.

It will be interesting to see how they balance that.

They have recently merged the PvP servers but are soon to open up another PvP server when the game goes officially free to play. This also allows new players to start on a level playing field.

My wife tried AoC FTP this week. We were not impressed. I was expecting some good graphics because I remember all of the hype when this game came out. It doesn't even look as good as WoW. So she went back to playing Rift (killer graphics), and I'm waiting for the next Diablo and Elder Scolls.

i remember reading a review that said it was fantastic in the tutorial zone, but then garbage after you start the actual game.

This has to be a troll post because A: free to play hasn't launched yet (only trial) and B: AoC graphics are not only miles beyond WoW graphics but also better than Rifts (Rifts graphics are extremely over-rated).

You obviously did not launch the DX10 AoC client and have all graphical settings maxed.
