I'm glad I didn't buy aoc.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Not that it's a bad game or anything, I just don't feel it anymore. The first two or so zones were alright and I think the game had a lot going for it. It seemed so open with a lot of things to do and the community seemed good also.

Then I hit 30 and started traveling to other places.

I had no idea where to go or what to do. I had quests spread across different zones and it made things confusing. I have only partied up once or twice in the game, but only to do a quest that I could have easily done myself. So far I've played the game solo (up to level 30) and I haven't interacted with anyone other then fighting.

The community I first thought was cool suddenly went to hell. I came across multiple level 80's ganking 20's. Although I wasn't ganked at all, it still pissed me off so I posted in general chat for the zone asking why this guy was being such a ****. Everyone but a few people defended this guy saying that it's fun and I shouldn't have joined a pvp server if I'm going to complain. That's just retarded. I know this happens in other mmo's, but I feel that they handle it much better then AOC does.

So these are some of the reasons why I don't think I'm going to play anymore. The game had great potential, but I wasn't as immersed as I was playing other mmo's. Maybe I'll wait for warhammer or god forbid the next expansion of wow.

Well, the fact that AOC is an 18+ (right?) game, is both a positive and a negative. A lot of people assume that people will be more mature, but the fact is that a lot of gamers in our age group have serious ego problems... especially in games of progression like MMOs. So they're going to do what they want to do without any sort of consideration for other players. Like you said, it'll happen everywhere... and I don't think there's any way to combat sour attitudes and lame play.

I do really enjoy Guild Wars, though. If you get into the right environment as far as guilds go, you can play with some really awesome people. But there's no open-PVP or anything like WoW.

that's a problem with a lot of games today, you can't pin it down to a certain game or genera, or even console.

I posted the same thing in the AOC forums to see what response I would get.

This proves that the community there is just as bad as any other place.

i feel for you, i read every one of those responses. Drey2k seems like a bit of an ass. But i bet there are alot in MMOs.

It's like this in almost every game, people feel superior behind their computer and just trash talk you because they disagree with you. What's that word... oh right, FANBOYS.

I've been playing it quite a bit the past two days. It's like that with pvp dude. It really just is. I join a PVP server expecting to get ganked and expecting the same person to kill me over and over. It's just the way it is.

As for the quest I love them. They take you all over the place and are kinda tough. It's nice to see a MMO with a bit of a challenge here and there. WoW was WAY too easy.

This kind of gameplay goes way back to Diablo II, where if you were in a public game doing your quests someone could just join and hostile you. Then look for you and kill you for your gold and in some cases try to "Pop" you for gear and keep killing you over and over while you try to retrieve your body with your gear. Its sad I must say a little off-topic but I hope that is not the case with Diablo III.
