[IGN] Age of Conan One of the Fastest Selling PC Games of All Time - Page 6

post #51 of 95
Guys, let's stop the fighting, and have a reasonable debate.
I don't know if I should get this game or not. Looks great, and yet people complain about gameplay. There's also the monthly fee, which I don't like since I don't believe in paying ~150 a year to play a game.

If you have played MMOs and think you may enjoy a massive multiplayer game, pick AoC up...it's a lot of fun.

and Micro...I have two characters over 30...the game is a lot of fun.
answer my question above, please. i'd love to hear your response.

Age of Conan is an amazing game.

Some people won't like it , its just that plain and simple.



This is the first ever MMO i've played, where you don't notice your actually questing/grinding. It's actually somewhat fun to level, which I could never say for ANY other MMO except maybe Knight Online, but that game was made of fail in other aspects.

Like I said , You don't notice any of the grinding.


The combo system and directional attacks add a layer to the game that makes it have a slightly unique feel.

The Graphics are amazing, especially the water (even on low).

The Classes are very diverse and their roles in groups are also.

There is NO GLOBAL COOLDOWN. Most spells have cast times , but many of the short duration buffs are instant. This means, if you knock someone down or CC them and wanna burst damage them, the only thing that limits you is your skill. If feated properly, you can have 10+ damage buffs (most of which have negative consequences too) and hit them ALL at the same time for a huge damage increase. Of course, this would need insane timing because with all of them up you'de probably die really quick too.

Leveling is fast too, i'm 45 right now with 1 day 8 hours played.

fair enough Trance, you enjoy the game and don't let me take any of the fun out of it. i will simply state some facts and my opinion.

Unfortunately there is grinding, it's called quest-grinding... the same quests found in most of today's MMO's: Kill x number of whatever and return to NPC. Gather x number of whatever and return to NPC. how about a little creativity in the quest department funcom?

to me, the combo system was more of a pain in the ass than anything. instead of watching the combat sequence/your hp/mp you are busy looking at which of the 3 directional attacks you have to click next to get the skill off

classes diverse? yeah maybe. but name an MMO with classes that are not diverse.
Herald of Xotli = Druid
Assassin = Rogue
Barbarian = Rogue
Guardian = Paladin
Dark Templar = Paladin
Conqueror = Warrior
Necromancer = Warlock
Demonologist = Warlock
Ranger = Hunter
Bear Shaman = take a guess....
Priest of Mitra = again.....

wonder where they their class ideas from?

now don't go and call me a "wow fanboi" or some **** like that, i'm simply using it as an example. however compared to this game, wow is 3000% more in-depth.

leveling fast? to some might be a good thing, to others maybe not.

one thing i do agree with you is that the graphics are superior, by a margin (especially for an MMO)

however, i meant for that question to be aimed at dankoni and Elyaas who are still trying to get their $50 worth.. anyway, i hope to see their responses.

EDIT
perhaps a follow up question if they decide to answer that first one: how is the crafting / player economy?

you people have to understand my frustrations with this piece of crap. I was so excited for this game, cause quite honestly, i've been bored being out of school for a little while. After playing it for a few weeks i came to realize what a huge letdown it was and i feel that Funcom is making money that they don't deserve. But I guess if the player pays it, Funcom has won.

you've gotta be ****ing kidding me? this game has nothing to be compared to wow with. you're comparing this game to wow because apparently the classess are similar to wow's classes and somehow this game stole them? what the ****ing ****? every mmo has mages, every mmo has warriors, every mmo has rogues, every mmo has healers. stop this **** about copying other games. and if you wanna get in the "copycat game", blizzard, infact stole/copied the ideas from warhammer when they released warcraft back in the day.
this game is far better than wow, its just the kids arent used to having a game where they arent babied.
and dont give **** about how the game is lacking, it was released 1 week ago. huh? yes, 1 week ago. i'd say its doing pretty decent for only being 1 week release. if i remember, wow had an even worse release, constant server crashes, rollbacks, and everything. and instanced pvp, which killed the game, wasnt even implented till a year after the release. the game is where its at , first of all, because you can play it on your grandmas pentium3 7 year old computer, and it looks like toontown, and also because it has been out for years, giving it time to have manyyyyyyyyyy patches to fix stuff in the game.
when has this been out? oh thats right, 1 week.

stop crying *****es.

stop crying *****es.
first of all, use ****ing paragraphs.

lol talk about instanced pvp. yes WoW is more carebear, but at least WoW made an effort at a more seamless world. Hell, every zone in AoC is instanced!

I agree that what makes a good game is qualities that it derives from other games. But in reality, AoC has taken WoW, given it a visual makeover, and released it. There is really nothing that AoC has (besides the combo system, OMG so KOOL!) that any modern-day MMO doesn't. Question for you, and those other two idiots who posted earlier:

what do u enjoy about aoc?

EDIT

your brutal and savage MMO
