Shelf Age of Conan - Page 3

post #21 of 28
For one, my laptop cannot play it well enough, and two the game does have many problems. I can play it at a buddies house, but I think I will wait until everything is not so bugged so I can play and enjoy it.

Dude I hate to say it but I'm with you man. I love this game but it doesnt feel complete. I uninstalled it and just shelfed it already. I will DEFINATELY pick up on it in a few months when its worked on though.

I was really excited about this game. I came from wow and the pvp was fun but lacking. So AoC is a pvp game with pve aspects, awesome! So I started off with a Tempest Of Set durning the early access. Got her to 20 then a few wow friends started on another server.. grr. So I started a Assassin. It is 54 now, and totally useless.. Makes me so angry. I get killed by people 10 levels below me, and can only kill 1-2 mobs my level without having to run!. So I gave up on it. Started a new ToS on the server and I am loving it! She is 36, and I was ganked by a 44 assassin, 45 ranger, and a 43 barb. The Assassin died then must of called his buddies, so the ranger and barb were on me, If all 3 at the sametime I would have been doomed but, needless to say I was the only one left standing. (Hey I was proud of that moment)!

There are some classes that need a lot of work, A LOT! 1/4 of the quests are bugged... but for now I am staying put. If you played wow at release it was horrible! Anyways thats my story and im sticking to it.

I agree with you about quite a few of the classes being seriously FUBAR, which you think they should have caught before launch. And the amount of quests being bugged is kind of unacceptable in my opinion, I mean really that's why these companies do betas and pay people to literally play video games and try to break them. And getting stuck on stair steps and the like really bugs me too....I'd like to navigate the terrain without getting stuck on a twig in the road.

you werent playing the game right then. im an assasin and i can take down anything 3-4 levels above me unless theyre a guardian. mages i can take down easy as long as theyre not healers, then im pretty ****ed.

assassins are pretty useless to guilds for seiges and such. unless theyre used right in which case theyre only good for taking out the other guild so the big hitters can take down the buildings. ToS needs to be nerfed.

The following information from Game Director Gaute Godager is about the plans for the near future.

Fellow Hyborians!

As you may have noticed we have had frequent patches the last two weeks. We hope this will soon start to quiet down, but as long as there are major issues – and there have been – we will dedicate the Conan team to fixing them and giving you these fixes as soon as possible! We have a plan on how to move this game forward because as you know, what you have today is but the platform – the dawn of this world. I hope you enjoy the game as is, but I can ensure you, this is but the beginning!

Our focus from now on can be summarized by these points:

1. We will add content, specifically in mid-late thirties and mid-late fifties and make the leveling speed smoother in those areas, reducing the need to grind.
2. We will have an overhaul of the PvP system – adding consequence and a host of small things.
3. We are fixing bugs you reported through all channels we can get information from.
4. We will add a new large outdoor region in the 55-60 range this summer!
5. This is only a small taster! More information about the exciting summer and fall Roadmap will come the end of the next week!
6. We are staffing up Customer Service, Quality Assurance and Community departments!

I will spend some words on a bit more details now.


1. Filling “thin areas†in our content

We have seen that there are certain level ranges of these Hyborian Adventures that do not have the amount of quality we wish them to have. Most specifically these are the end of the Thirties and the end of the Fifties level ranges. We are addressing this in several ways.

* Several mid-late thirties dungeons are getting a complete overhaul (Black Castle, Pyramid of the Ancients and Treasury of the Ancients)
* Several quests are being made fuller and more entertaining. If people wish to revisit these quests, we will add a system to let them try them out again.
* we are adding first a batch of quests in Eiglophian Mountains (lvls 55+)
* We are also adding in a bunch of quests that didn’t quite make it for launch in the 30+ areas.
* Around 60 quests through the game have been flagged as “Lore Questsâ€. They will now be patched out with full Voice-Over. (Roughly 1 quest per level after level 20)

All this will come in June! In July the first level 80 additional Dungeon will be patched out. More on that later…


2. Overhauling the PvP System


People like our open PvP system. There are many plans on how to give this open free PvP even more meaning and Purpose. In the meantime we will be doing some smaller tweaks, and we plan to get these out sometimes in June. I will not go into 100% detail here, but that will come next week! What I can promise is:

* An update on how sneaking and perception works in PvP (nothing major, but an adjustment).
* A change in the amount of information you get when you hover over an other player.
* An added system of consequence to “gankingâ€. (Killing much-much lower level players).
* A system of adding consequence to losing a PvP match, and winning a PvP match + turning on PvP Leveling.
* A change in how Crowd Control (Root, Knockback etc) works in PvP.
* PvP gear.



3. New Massive Region

We will unveil this location later, but it will feature a host of quests, new monsters and places of dreams or horror. It will be styled towards the players in the late 50s and bridge the experience on the way to Atzels Approach. We have plans for releasing several of the areas that didn’t quite make it for the release.


4. Fixing bugs and increasing Customer Service

Funcom has always prided ourselves with having great customer satisfaction. The success so far for this title has left us with the need to increase the size of CS. This will go in parallel with the constant fixing of bugs and other issues that lead people to petition. Included in this is even better testing of the game by increasing the size of Quality Assurance and informing you better about changes by staffing up the Community Department. I know a blurb like this will haunt me always, but I will still venture one: We aren’t satisfied until all our customers are! You know we had a very, very difficult launch of Anarchy-Online! That was a very painful process for all of us working on it – 4 years. You might not understand how driven we are to make sure you enjoy this game, and all the support around it!

The future is very bright for Hyboria. There will be many bright mornings following this, the very first. Together we shall surge ahead and build the world even bigger, better and more detailed!

Yours truly,

Gaute Godager

You know, even 2 patches in 5 days is WAY more than most MMOs would bother with. You should be happy it gets patched as often as it does.
