Waiting for the Arnold update.
Age of Conan | Funcom
Played this game on launch then again about a year later when they gave you 1 free max level character, that was years ago. Anyone play this recently? I picked up the full game/expansion from a half priced books for 3.00 so I figured I would give it another go.
THE NEXT WoW KILLER!
AoC was featured as a central theme on a Big Bang Theory episode. Checkmate WoW.
I remember how great it was and then I left the noobie town.
How did the tits get nerfed? This is important.
Man the first 30 minutes of that game is sweet.
I really like the combat mechanics - to bad it had 0 end game.
I like it but not enough for a sub. Without a sub you are basically gimped since they don't have cash shop unlocks for things like AA. Funcom basically killed this game with their stupid F2P model.
AoC was dope as fuck until you left Tortage. If I had to choose one MMO that I wish would've gotten one more year of development (and there are many) this would be it.
PvP wise it's the greatest MMO ever made hands down. PvE wise.....ya, no. Funny tho I actually just downloaded the game and hopped on yesterday for the first time in years only to find out the game is completely dead. I was hoping to find some low level PvP in white sands but even that isn't happening anymore on any of the servers. Would be cool to get a small group of people for some low level skirmishes as I always thought it was the most fun part of the game.
I had a lot of fun playing this competitively at launch, being one of the first max-level folks on uhm, Deathwhisper? and I liked that there was literally one zone you could level quickly to cap, bringing a lot of fun PvP for a couple weeks where we would guard the resource against other groups.
But the siege mechanics and stronghold ownership was unfinished and poorly thought out. We got the first keep off of some mind-numbing PvE farming and we destroyed the first keep in a really shitty siege system.
What did they do to make it better to make it the greatest PvP MMO ever?
Getting rooted and gunned down by rangers every five seconds until Heralds of Xotls learned charge and would pop cooldowns and would one shot you only to hide for the next 15 minutes. Tank classes going from unplayable to unkillable.
The combo system was pretty awesome and I would not mind playing a game that had something similar to it.
The game itself was utter trash past tortage, of all the MMOS I've played AoC had the biggest let down, I honestly think if it was released today lawsuits would of been filed and won. They would of atleast had to of pulled a Final Fantasy and shut down the game to work on it.
Tiggles is running for BIGGEST IDIOT EVER and he needs your help!
Let's make Me Quit Life together!
As with most people, definitely bought the pre release hype based on the first 20 levels or whatever it was in tortage.
Walked out of tortage and canceled my sub. This was the last time I fell for pre release hype for any major mmo. Total bait and switch on the part of the dev team, imo.
I remember being let down that NPC's could let out a glorious stream of piss but there was no player emote for it. At least we could run around with our tits out.
Years ago I played uh, thaumaturge? Some nuker, to maybe 40ish before giving up. I don't think I saw another person the entire time. Casters didn't have to deal with shields or the goofy combo crap so it didn't play that bad. Game had a horrible habit of filling the roads with fucking mobs that of course instantly punted you from your horse.
I think I did work out a way to do combos with simple macros, but that probably wouldn't work in PVP.
IIRC originally it was going to have 5 directional buttons for combos and as many as 7 (or even 9?) inputs. This was nerfed down to what, 3 and 5? QTE: The MMO.
This ep. It's actually one of my favorite episodes.
The Barbarian Sublimation - The Big Bang Theory Wiki - Wikia
/shrug It's not my favorite show but it was usually pretty funny to me back when it came out. Haven't seen any episodes the last few years, I just assumed it jumped the shark a while back because it's been on so long.
Back on topic. This game actually was pretty good just before the expansion came out. I missed the launch fiasco. The expansion was a huge grind fest though (Heart of thorns I'm looking at you) so I bailed. Went back for F2P but their version sucked.

The funniest part about Big Bang Theory is seeing how rustled nerds on the internet become when you mention Big Bang Theory
I just can't get past canned laughter.
