Shelf Age of Conan

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Just wondering...is anyone thinking about putting AoC on their shelf for a couple months until Funcom gets things working as they should.

This game has a lot of potential but I am completely unimpressed with Funcom so far. Both patches they've put out since I've been playing (about 5 days ago) have actually HURT the game play more than improved. This last patch had a lot of fixes...but most of them were pretty mundane aside from the server issues;and now I'm reading that the patch is causing all kinds of other problems.

I doubt I'll play past my free month, maybe then I'll wait until after summer and see if things are actually more together.

I'm so thinking about sending mine back to them.

I played in the early access and then went and bought the game and a pre-paid game card. When they shut the early access keys off this weekend I tried upgrading my account with the game key and game card key and it would not work.
I have emailed them 3 times now and have not heard back. They need to fix it or they can stick it.

If you could have put your posts together in a reasonable way as I did above...and not just say THIS GAME IS CRAP DO NOT BUY BLA BLA BLA I may have listened. Oh well, the game has still given me fun up until level 35, and I will probably continue to play through my free month. I got a lot of play time out of the $50, more so than any first person shooter (such as Crysis) that I could have purchased in lieu of Age of Conan.

And a patch a day....what magical imaginary world are you living in? I've seen two patches in the five or six days I've been playing. It sure hasn't been a patch a day. And even if it was, the patches are not fixing the more important issues...they're fixing stupid stuff that is of less importance (and generally breaking other more important stuff).

lol if you actually read my posts you would see that i gave pretty damn descriptive reasons why the game will fail as well as funcom's lack of quality investment in the game.

i suggest you re-read my posts since u claim all i said was "THIS GAME IS CRAP DO NOT BUY BLA BLA BLA"

i could have saved you $50 my friend!

I did read your posts. And the one thing I remember is reading about a level 40 boss drop being worse than a level 30 quest item. I'm not bummed I spent the $50...I had fun playing as much as I have, it's higher levels that I'm concerned about. From what I've heard after about 40 or 50 the quests come few and far between. I'm sure as hell not grinding 30 levels to hit 80, especially when there is hardly ANY end game content to do.
