More inside.

Why am I not surprised? This game had fail written all over it.

This game had a 300% better launch than WoW did. People are just too impatient these days. I want I want I want. Well I friggin want a GTX280 in Tri-SLI with LN2 cooling. Guess what, mommy and daddy + girlfriend ain't that rich. It takes time and money, the time part is based on patience of subscribers. The money is based on pre-subscribers that help fund workers/servers.

Did you play the game? I play it and I love it.

People need to stop expecting WoW level of content. WoW has been out for a number of years now. Just give it some time. If they get the game going in a couple of months with a lot of end game content (they NEED IT) people will flock back.

*edit* and that article is so "Doom and Gloom". The author is so intent on making it seem like the worst thing possible has happened. It even goes as far to say the combat is bad (and basicly everything about the game is bad). The combat is awesome. I love the environments. Very diverse. This is the only MMO to keep me hooked past half lvl (lvl 40 in this case). lets hope Funcom tries to cut down some server maintnence by taking some out. Good luck funcom! I love your game!

Although, I agree about the "no one can run it". My laptop with a 9500M can't even do medium.

Lol I was just on the AoC forums and everyone is calling BS on it.

Oh and this is a quote from the author in the comments below.

briyan "Kyle, you know as well as I do that sources are not as important as the FACTS! This is not Law & Order, we don't allow the guilty defendant to go free because the video of his crime was obtained illegally."

Someone asked for source and that was the response they got.

AKA author is full of u know what.
