I was just wondering... I am seriously considering playing age of conan when it comes out. Is anyone else going to pre-order/buy it or have pre-ordered it already? Any interesting points about the game keeping you from playing it/not playing it?

I have it preordered, but no credit card = no 3 day early access (starting may 17th). Oh well, I guess I can wait until release

I wasn't too impressed with the beta, and no I am not complaining of bugs but of actual gameplay. I didnt like that everything was instanced and even though they claim the "swing your sword where you want" works its really just a gimmick and an annoying one at that [IMO]. Ill give it a shot once all the kinks are worked out so I can see its true colors and then Ill make a final decision.

I've heard a few whispers about there being bugs in the beta, poor performance, crashing... and now the gimmick sword swinging... The graphics looked nice on the preview videos but if it's unplayable or cheesy then I won't be interested... Seems like they have a large vested interest in the game though, I can't imagine them letting it suck completely!

Its beta..there are going to be some bugs. The first day or 2 of open beta it was pretty buggy, but after that it ran pretty damn well for a beta. Loading times were long in beta because they added in a code copying program to save all code everytime people loaded a new instance. Load times will be 1/3 of what they were in open beta. Graphics are great and thats why it is instance, its simply not possible to have a seamless world that pretty.
Combat is great!! no more one button grinding. I think this game will be amazing. I preordered a year ago.

I was actually interested in this game at one point....

then I got into the open beta because I am a fileplanet subscriber.

I have no more interest in this game. Personally the PvP did not meet my expectations. I really liked Shadowbane style PvP, so I can't blame AoC.

Maybe those of you who are in the open beta can answer my question? How is the travel system? Did you find it to be too easy to get around? I liked WoW with the open travel system. I hope they didn't spoil the fun of the game by dividing it all into sections you can warp to and from... do they have portals, or can you just bring up your map at any time and select a location to travel too?
I'm now considering splitting the cost of the game with my brother and trying it out for 30 days... at least then I will only be out 25 bucks!

Crap version of WoW. Already have 70 days on my WoW character. No chance of me playing.
