I mean no disrespect, but forgive me if I don't hold my breath.  Funcom is full of promises that always seem to come up empty.   I put up with it for about 2 months before I threw in the towel.

Ok if your a spokes person for Funcom please explaine what is going to happen when they start merging servers to the PVP Battlekeeps different guilds have. Another question is what happened to the twice aweek updates oh thats right, changed to once aweek, oh thats right was changed to once every two weeks, oh thats right delayed till the 30th now, oh thats right gonna test everything then let you know. Why should anyone believe anything you or anyone from Funcom says.

He is not working for Funcom. He is a volunteer for MMORPG that helps channeling information for AoC.

First off, I'm not an employee for Funcom. I don't know anything in the nitty-gritty of exactly why, but if you take the time to read Funcom's reasons for these changes, you can probably figure out the answer for yourself. But since it is my job here to correspond: Funcom made the change from twice weekly to once a week because they wanted to produce larger patches that fixed more issues once a week, instead of two smaller patches. Also, with the issue of things constantly getting pushed back, the only simple explanation I can give you is: Programming isn't easy - shit happens. You can't force your employees to stay 24/7 working on patches in order to appease your customers, it just doesn't happen. Also, they figure that it would be better to run the new patches through a week more QA, then to push them out buggier than what they were intended to fix.

And - I wasn't aware that when making forum posts I had to make sure that everything I wrote was spelled and grammatically correct. I will start doing this if everybody is going to take the fact that I'm a human gamer, just like the rest of you, and throw that out the window and categorize me with a mindless robot that is doing Funcom's news reporting.

I have no problem with spelling and grammar, though as an official person on these forums you should really make an effort i suppose.

However the thing that does concern me is that you seem to be drawing a lot of conclusions and guesses.

 

I.e. your explanation of why patches where changed from 2 weeks to 1 week. Is that a guess or is that the official stance of Funcom communicated to you or the players?

 

I guess what i am wondering is: is the information you will be giving us your interpretation of official Funcom posts (which we can find on the official forums anyway) or will you be posting information that is given to you, or MMORPG.com, directly, that might not be stated publicly anywhere else?

If you're going to market yourself as a "correspondent" I recommend trying to come across as professional as possible, including in the forums.  This means correct spelling, correct grammar, and no dropping of f-bombs or use of "shit", etc.  You don't need to be a "mindless robot" to come across as intelligent and professional in your words.  You have that correspondent title under your name to the left now.

But it's your call man.

I'm having a hard time seeing how useful he is too.  Maybe he just writes articles on the front page about Funcom news, in which case he isn't very helpful to anyone coming to the forums.

Let me get this right... We have a correspondent for AOC that gives information on what Funcom is doing ?  How can these forums be anything other than OFFICIAL forums 2 with such a mod.  Get ready for another ban wave.  Now on MMORPG.COM

I wonder if Funcom contacted MMORPG.COM cause there was actually some open discussion going on on these forums about whats going on on official forums and in the game. 

Pathetic really.

I think some people are going overboard

 

the Op is introducing themselves

 

while their role is not clear yet,

doesnt sound different than other mmorpg staff supporting info on other mmos

I believe the role of correspondent it to write articles, guides, organized previews, etc...of the game they're covering.  In addition it's a volunteer position.

It has nothing to do with Funcom, and everything to do with covering the game.  I'm hoping that correspondents remain impartial and are able to point out both positive and negative aspects of the game they're covering.

One can hope...right?

I'm not a huge fan of the game (okay, I cancelled), but I've always loved the IP.  Don't burn Dominisi at the stake before he's even done anything.  Give the guy a chance.

I agree with you that my professionalism should be at its peak for the articles that I write. But the ignorance of some of the members of this community is absolutely grotesque. You haven’t even read one of the articles that I have put out, and you are already judging me. You know nothing of my background, or what I will be writing about, and you’re already judging me.
 
And yes, the bulk of my job is writing news articles for the front page. I’m just coming to the forums and introducing myself because in my articles I want to try and represent the community – not just what Funcom says. But I guess I’m going to get no respect in that.
 
It’s awesome when the community you are trying to represent flames you before your first time at bat.
 
Nonetheless my job is to take what Funcom announces, analyze it with their history, past announcements, information I am given, and research that I do on my own, and then write an article for MMORPG outlining the changes, and what they bring to the game, in order to educate patrons to the website who may, or may not, be playing Age of Conan.
 
Its amazing how you can get flamed for making an introduction post.

Oh, yeah.

I AM NOT AN EMPLOYEE OF FUNCOM, OR A FORUM MODERATOR FOR THIS WEBSITE

Thank you to the more mature members that are trying to correct some of the high school kids who come to these forums for the soul purpose of trying out their flamethrowers.

Dom, if you've been around the game for awhile, you'll see why the flames are so ready to fire. The official forums are a joke, those volunteer mods are assholes to the community. The devs are too good to communicate with their customers, and the anger at the game and FC has been festering for awhile.

That's no excuse for people flaming you for no reason, just a little backround on the mentality of hate towards the game and company. Some people will inevitably see you with some kind of role here more than usual poster, connect that with FC and the game, then start flaming, having no idea they are misguided.

AoC is a terrible game, FC is a terrible MMO company IMO, but there is no cause to flame the guy here at MMORPG for being the one to report on it everyone.

Domenisi,

I'm curious, do you have any special access to information or things in the pipe than we would? If you are going to be commenting on patches, updates etc, are you going to be reporting on the same info we see?

If not, what are you going to use as source material for your articles?

My turd has lots of potential cause it can be used as fertilizer, fuel, cement, artistic material etc. In the end of the day it's still a turd.

Long story short... How can you see potential unless the very core of this "game" is changed so deeply that the outcome is another game is beyong my understanding.


 

you just can't het the nail any harder or more squarely on the head than this. and it had me ROFLMAO!

Honestly, you would have done yourself a favor by starting your OP out with this sentence.  It would probably have saved you a lot of grief.   Funcom has burned a lot of people in the last few months, so it's understandable that many people will lash out at anything FC related.

As for being flamed, if this thread is as bad as it gets, you'll be fine.  A long time PvPer like you should have thicker skin!  

Oh, and you'll get a lot of respect around here if you are honest and just tell it like it is in your articles.  AoC has good and bad -- don't hold back on either!

It’s awesome when the community you are trying to represent flames you before your first time at bat.
 
Nonetheless my job is to take what Funcom announces, analyze it with their history, past announcements, information I am given, and research that I do on my own, and then write an article for MMORPG outlining the changes, and what they bring to the game, in order to educate patrons to the website who may, or may not, be playing Age of Conan.
 
Its amazing how you can get flamed for making an introduction post.

Oh, yeah.

I AM NOT AN EMPLOYEE OF FUNCOM, OR A FORUM MODERATOR FOR THIS WEBSITE

Thank you to the more mature members that are trying to correct some of the high school kids who come to these forums for the soul purpose of trying out their flamethrowers.


 

Woah calm down.  If you took what I said as flaming I apologize.  I was just trying to figure out what your role was.  I admit to being ignorant of MMORPG.com correspondants and what they do. I know Sword of the New World has a rep from the company in the mmorpg.com forums that spins everything people are critical about and I thought you might be in the same capacity.  Once again, I apologize.

I look forward to your (hopefully) impartial articles, and welcome!
