If they wanted to be original max of the max 3 directional keys should be used. Fortunately spellcasters and ranger does not have this problem.

 

Still have resubbed around new year after few years and I'm not sorry, it is great and fun and intense game, but i'm very bothered by mele classes and that multikeys combos. But I guess will not stay more then 1 month or 2.

So did you not read the date of the OP's post ? was 2010... 4 years ago. AoC is not even relevant anymore let alone the need to necro a 4 year old post.

I loved this game when it came out, one of my all time favorites.  Spent many days of my life playing this.  As the game progressed though, whatever moron was making decisions about the game, just kept dumbing down the game, making it easier, making it themepark.  Something it was never designed to do.  At one point it just became silly to play it anymore and the game lost its focus. 

Those of you that know what I mean, understand the great game that was destroyed here...

The only thing good in AOC is the combat. I wanted this game to be a sandbox open world pvp with harsh penalties rather than a theme park. BG's in this game are the worse.

I left coz i got bored of this game under a couple of weak and i stopped at level 40 mind. The first 25 levels are the best experience one will ever get from an mmorpg tho.

It's still around, it's still relevant. Sorry your such a stick in the mud that if you don't like something it has to suck for everyone else.

Will never ever give another dime to Funcom that being said here is why? Bought collectors edition and 6 month sub around the 60 day mark I went to the AOC forums and asked when " Bar Room Brawling would be added. Was given a permanent Ban, Uninstalled game and through collectors edition in trash.

1-20 was glorious. Tortage was so good that I felt it set a bad precedent for the rest of the game. Combat was tedious with the MK-like system, it just doesn't work well with an MMO. One keypress should equate to one action, without compromise. Soloing in a low population game with odd level, world scaling was rough.

    Why don't more people play Age of Conan ? I know it had a bad start but it's pretty nice now. It has the best grafix by far +Carnage, blood, fatalities, naked breast's, and in my opinion, the bet starting area, finest combat structure and least boring quest of all. The raids are fun and the expansion was nice. The planned content sounds good to. I have played Aion and beta tested Rift, DCU, and others but never found a replacement for this game......So my question is why don't you play? ....Poor PC ? Sour from launch ? Not enough advertising or hype ?  

I liked the game, I never really got to play much of it. I weathered the huge download, and played for a week. Then my old hard drive broke, and i had to get a new one. I never made it through the long download again. Damn my 100kbs lol.

OP I agree with you. I liked it very much. Have several level 80 characters. I suppose I just moved on. I actually logged back in a few weeks before ESO launched to check population and there was absolutely no one responding to world chat. So I haven't been back since.

Bad F2P model.  If they let me permanently unlock content ala LOTRO I would have spent money.  I had no interest in paying a sub for that game after leveling to about 40.

I personally always preferred this game over anything post SWGnerf.. But I laughed when I read this, due to the way it was written. As it sounds like you just casually asked ( if so) that's hilarious. I know it might not have been at the time, yet in this description it's like random guy casually walking into mcdonalds saying "hey man I love the food, when's the mcrib come out again? " Then being banned for life from the store by the manager without even so much as an explanation, just escorted straight out.

I really enjoyed the Tortuga starter area, but the area after that felt too much like WoW. I wanted to do the first dungeon as people had told me that it is in the dungeons the games excel, but couldn't find someone to do it with. So I stopped doing content as I didn't want to outlevel it and eventually stopped logging in at all.

I could never get navigation right.  Always caused problems.  Quests weren't well explained.

The grafics is abit old and people play the new mmorpg becouse there friends are playing it not becouse its god or nice mmorpg its becouse its new.

 

I liked AOC  but I   play mmos to play with people not experiance a new single player game.

This happends all the time where a new mmo comes up half the player base wannish

I can't speak for anyone else. Won't even try.

For me it was, idk, I can't quite put my finger on it. Even in Tortage I felt that rotten something gnawling in the background and it, imo, reared its ugly head when you left Tortage. If I HAD to say what that something was, I'd say it's that the game's pretty meaningless. I tries to be a single player and an MMO in one and, quite unsurprisingly, fails epically at both. I just don't have the drive to think of it, let alone play it. Contrast that with the WoW syndrome(where you can't stop thinking about the game) and you'll understand it. I'll give you a personal example:

-> SWTOR: I STILL(haven't played it in 3 months or so) think about it, the characters I created etc. I literally WANT to play it(will finish Kotor series first->some things just have to be played chronologically in order to understand them{like the first part of Consular story where all the Jedi masters from Kotor appear}). Hence I'll not only resub, but play it with whole heart.

-> AoC: I caught myself thinking of other things while playing. Oh and the obligatory back ache(sth that happens to me when I'm bored? idk). I had to literally FORCE myself to play it. I don't think about it and I don't think I ever will. Which is funny because I have only respect for both Conan and Resident Evil(sorry had to :P) Howard. Hell I even loved watching the Momoa movie(it's better than Arnie one imo, but that's OT). And I can't stand AoC. I wonder where does it put AoC? Oh and the lack of input from FunCon is perplexing. Why did FunCon and Mythic run their games so hard into the ground is going to be an eternal conundrum for me.

That's that for me. They cocked up the "it" factor imo. And severely at that. What a shame...

Maybe the fact that a crafting revamp was being worked on and supposed to be out Spring or Summer of 2013? It still isn't finished and I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for it either. That shows right there how much time and effort FunCom is putting into this game.

Apart  from having the best graphics, even years later... the game saks! because of FunCom deciding to go with this unplayable, cheap version of a Mortal Kombat mechanic....

yes those 2 are the reasons

for some its the combat system , although you can get used to it

but for most of us its the pay model they have chosen

it should be free for all content and give you many things to buy with real money as most modern games do

this system was tested in dcuo and aoc and other games and failed

on the contrary other games with whole content free like dungeons - money limit - classes limit etc

you feel nice and equal playing the game as someone who has money but then gets you into spending with 

more clever ways like inv slots - mounts - companions - ways to level up faster - potions etc

the basic things should be free in any game 

thats why we will never play it unfortunately
