    Age of Conan preview

    This is for people with open minds that are looking for new content new spells new clases. Unlike Warhammer wich has a lot of hype but does not deserve it , this game does. I will atleast give it a shot when its released. I am hoping its a Huge hit and that it kills wow just like wow killed Eq1. if its not then ill keep playing wow.But for those of us that want something new .

    13clases 3 races .
    nudity
    fatalities
    blood.
    Free for all Pvp servers if thats what you want
    over 800 quest some voice acted.
    World bigger than Wow's world
    They didnt want alliance kids to play so they made it 17+ Mature rating. This will be nice.

    I dont want to hear complainers . Just dont play coan if you dont want to we know that blizzard has you by the balls , blizz dont care about players because they got enough to go around.. this company looks different so give it a shot it doesnt hurt to try .

    as you can see in the building a town video it does not have that dark look some players complain about. thats only in night time. The new charecter creating screen looks different and you can see that one in ageofconan.com . The spells look really good in some of the leaked pvp videos I have seen and BG types of maps look bright and colorfull.

    PS. Conanhead.com is coming dont belive me ask them yourself

    A mature rating is not going to keep immature teenagers from play the game. Their parents will buy it for them and they'll use their parents credit card.

    your right , but this just shows what kind off game the developers shot for. With over 4 years in development I hope they did the right things because I cant wait to explore a new combat system and new terrain.

    also AoC went through like 3 full rebuilds in the 4 yrs to be what it is today . I hope this will drag me away from WoW.

    Ok, so I was hyped before I saw those videos...now it's painful. I feel like cartman waiting for the Wii.

    I also hope I can snag up a name I want really fast by joining first day it's released :P

    Where can I pre-order this at because I want a rhino mount?

    Yeah, three races, but all three are human races. So the point of races is kinda moot. Otherwise the graphics are turning out quite good. Though I still think monster design is horrid.
    I'm an altoholic since 2005.

    Well, to be honest, I'm pretty indifferent about the first Graphics demo vid, it doesn't look that much different from Vanguard except for a few more years/months of tweaks added on top. And I have a feeling, like was already said, that those levels of detail are only going to be available to the very top end computers.

    For the toon creation, its pretty neat, and I actually like the vid... but at the very end, when they were scrolling through the jungle, I noticed a LOT of the textures on the trees were very slow to load... I have to hope that thats not the case in release, because having them blink in like that would actually lower the quality of the game quite a bit for me.

    The town building was pretty cool, and it sounds like fun for the pvp involved with that, but as to the pvp free fro all servers, well, I for one would give them a pass, cause they're going to be ruled by asshole mega-guilds, and if you don't belong to the guild, then your screwed... and you probably wont belong to the guild. Back to the towns, though. If you have to defend them at all times, that could be a major drag, especially if your guild doesn't number in the hundreds. Personally, I like the feel of smaller, more closely knit guilds, and this system seems pre-disposed to put them at a huge disadvantage. Also, it seems to me that there might be a huge possibility of EVE-style infiltration and takeovers. Not sure if there is, but that would be a major downside for me if it was true (the fact that WoW doesn't have guild resources that can be destroyed discourages this practice in WOW, which, to me, is a good thing. Whatever floats your boat though).

    I didn't address your first video cause it didn't work.

    There's also not one thing there about PvE. The PvE for an MMO had better be damn interesting, since no matter what people seem to believe, thats what MMOs are built around. It says advanced AI in one of the vids, but that means jack squat with no additional information. The fact that I have yet to hear anything about AoC PvE makes me pretty suspicious of the whole thing. also, post above me is correct... the monster design looks pretty shitty where it is shown (which is almost no where that I can find).

    NOW, as to your post... 3 races seems pretty sparse, the large number of classes might make up for it a little, but for most MMOers, thats just not enough races (and was said above me, they're all human... which is retarded). Nudity is a gimmick, not a reason to play the game. For the quests.... http://www.wowhead.com/?quests , thats 6082 quests in WoW. While a lot of them are doubles for the different factions, the vast majority are unique.800 quests kinda pales in comparison. And no matter what they say, there WILL be grind quests in Conan. Grinds are part and parcel of the MMO genre, and without them, you can't get in enough playtime to make it worth running a continuous world. And the world may be bigger than WoWs... but thats not much good unless its full of stuff, and that means 1. quests (which there are NOT near enough of) and 2. people (I would think a server would need to be at least as densly populated as most WoW servers in order to not feel empty in a larger world.) Last (on your list) is the rating. If you think this will make a difference in the age and maturity of the players, think again. As a matter of fact, it may LOWER the maturity overall when moving from WoW, because you'll get a lot of kids whose parent will buy it for them, who will play it to be edgy and shit. The rating tells you only that the content is going to be more risqué, not that more mature people will play it.

    As for you... well, pull your head out of your ass. You immediately begin by attacking the majority of your audience, then go on to tell them why they are idiots and why they should obey you. AoC will NOT kill WoW, and blizzard does NOT have its players by the balls... they just provide the best offering on the market for the largest number of people. If AoC can deliver better customer service than WoW, I'll be pretty impressed. If you've been in the MMO-market besides WoW, you know that Blizzard does customer service better than any of the other major MMOs ever did. Anyways, my main point here was that I'm less likely to play the game now because of your post. I'll probably give it a whirl because it looks like its worth a try... but they should sure as hell be glad that they have more going for them than YOUR word of mouth, cause your jackassery really made me want to throw this out before I even tried it.


    EDIT: I apologize, you didn't IMMEDIATELY attack your audience, you at least waited till after you presented your media. But that doesn't negate the fact that anyone that doesn't agree with you is obviously(!!!) wrong.

    Not saying it's a bad game, but you definitely like something is wrong with it when people have to advertise "Nudity" as the 2nd most important feature.

    Oh, and thread locked.
