This isnt a WoW thread and stop comparing all games to WoW. WoW players are annoying, Age of Conan is a very fun game the pvp takes skill now so levels are really obsolete people that dont like the game is because you have to have half a brain to play it its not about skill spamming rather Skilled players with a keen eye. This game will be very good on launch i have pre ordered and its already install 5 thumbs up and WoW players please shut up no one cares about that stupid game. Hoo Rah for age of conan!!!

Played the beta. It's pretty much WoW with prettier graphics and a smaller community no matter how you look at it. I give it 2 months before the servers are desolate and empty. Nothing has succeeded with WoW around and nothing will.

HAHAH no my friend, you do not require any more SKILL to play AoC then it does to play any other game.

The combat system is a gimmick, and not even a good one at that!

Warhammer Online has more preorders than WoW ever did, and I'm not one to rip on WoW I put 250ish days (played) across 4 characters into WoW and quit recently... It got boring.. same ol' same ol'.


I'm still not sure about age of conan because from what i've seen Warhammer online looks much better.

Yeah, but as good as WAR looks, it has a release date of Fall '08, which is hopefully true but even so there's still tons of room for a slight delay of a month or so. While Age of Conan has a release date of may 20th, less than a week from now. The way I see it I can play Age of Conan, and see if I like it. Then if so I can level to 80, enjoy the end game for a few months, and still have tons of time to consider WAR before it's released.

I wasn't fortunate enough to play the AoC beta, but I have heard a lot of mixed things so I'm definitely going to give it a try. If it doesn't work out at least it will have wasted a bit of time leading up to Warhammer online.

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.
Why didn't the PvP interest you if you like SB? It's basically freaking FFA on the PvP servers, and if I remember correctly (which I do)...it was about the same thing in SB. People getting butchered left and right, everywhere. Good times, IMO. The PvP servers are somewhat similar to the Mordred rule-set on DAOC. I have heard PvP is a lot more fun on Age of Conan from several of my hardcore PvP friends…

From what I have seen, this is far from a WoW clone. Every single MMO that comes out from now on is automatically going to be a ‘WoW clone’ just because of how much Blizzard did with the MMO genre. From what my room mate has seen and from what my close friends have told me, this is far from a clone. I don’t think this will surpass WoW subscription wise, but to be honest, WAR has a good chance…

I can’t say much about the whole swinging system because I haven’t played it personally, but the majority of the people I have talked too, and from when I was watching my room mate play it…it looks like a lot more engaging experience.

EDIT: Also, if anyone is interested, we have a guild froming that's already 30+ people from two extremely successful WoW guilds. Send me a PM if you want to join up...I'll tell you were we are rolling and what my name is.

Oh...the reason I really enjoyed the PvP aspects of Shadowbane, and something I have grown to look forward to in a game.

Shadowbane PvP was pretty harsh, when you stepped out of the NPC cities, you had to be on your guard FOR REAL! If you died, you felt it. In AoC you just kinda respawn. In RPG's like this (if I am going to dedicate serious time to one) I want to feel an attachement to my pixels man. And being slaughtered in 5 seconds in AoC combat and then just respawning is not really my cup of tea. You also lost items in your backpack in Shadowbane. You could build your own cities in Shadowbane and attack others player created cities. The game had flaws, don't get me wrong, but overall the political climate, the character creation, and the amazing PvP have all showed me what "I" like about RPG's.

The biggest thing I liked about Shadowbane was I felt like you had all the tools to survive and fight again another day, or to avoid combat if needed. If you were good at the game, a solo player could really be a viable alternative play style as well. Yes it is only natural that you may affiliate yourself with a guild, but you could certainly play the game quite well solo. Of course you couldn't take out whole groups of people but, you could certainly have some amazing fights, cat-and-mouse with rogues and groups trying to XP. The classes were unique and interesting. Lots of races.

BAH!!! I guess I just want Shadowbane v2.0 :`(.

Anyway, I did find the AoC Open Beta semi-enjoyable after they released the "miracle patch", but still I could tell it wasn't going to be something I was interested in from what I could play of it.

I did have fun in the Arenas, etc. I don't want to bash this game, because it doesn't deserve to be bashed. It will be a good game, you guys that are into it are probably going to love it!
