There is some "fun" to be had in this game still but there are many problems. Lack of critical mass playerbase, level 80 gameplay is too grindy, and the pvp still not having much meaning all are just keeping and have kept aoc from succeeding.

If lovin games is wrong, I don't wanna be right

I played at launch and then quit not too long after. I went back not too long ago and started a new demo and leveled to 80 and I had a lot of fun and I forgot how cool some of the zones were.  (Oh and I love the soundtrack)  But then after I was 80 I just sort of hit this wall. I joined a guild and tried to do some of the endgame stuff but it all just felt extremely grindy and do this to get better gear so you can then be more powerful to go and get even better gear.  Nah, I'm done with that kind of gaming.  I don't want things just handed to me but repeating quests over and over to get tokens and bla bla bla just isn't fun ever.

I did honestly think of playing again recently just to level up a new toon though.

I love the mechanics of this game to death, but I don't like that a 5 man group can complete stuff and get better loot than the 20 man raids. If they came out with new dungeons that are even harder than the 5 mans with better loot, I'd be there. Although, it's been a couple years since I played... maybe they added it?

I derive my strength from passion. Do you feel that? That is what seperates you and I, Jedi!

AOC is still fun for me. The game has its issues, no denying, but things I like such as the combat system make me want to keep playing it.  Hell, the other day I played around on a lowbie barb just having fun getting fatalities in Tortage. I find many of the people who bash the game are either veterans that are frustrated the game never went in the direction they were hoping (mostly PVPers, mostly legitimate complaints) or people who haven't played since the first month (or never did, but still spout the same crap they heard somewhere else - game is incomplete past Tortage etc).  Anyway, a population boost would be nice, some catering to PVP would help, but regardless I think I will stay in some capacity until the lights go out.

Cheers

Imo, the end-game is nowhere near as grindy as some people try to portray it. The thing is there are 12 factions from which you choose 6. Each faction has about 20-25 fairly unique quests you can repeat to gain reputation with them, some of them has random elements so are always slightly different. Or you can skip it, and do the dungeons, I can't see how is this any more grindy than any other themepark game out there.

I had great fun in Tortage, but it went downhill from there.  I guess I got bored or wasn't finding content that interested me.

 

One side note, I had a terrible time on my dev machine with crashes.  My laptop plays it perfectly.  The crashing got annoying and even pouring through support I couldn't find a fix.

I still play, and I plan on keeping it up for some time. Guild is growing with just calm mature people, so were having a nice time.

And yes, I still like it :)

I love the game. Fantastic graphics and a superb combatsystem that beats any other mmo by a mile. And yes, it is better than GW2, whose beta shows, it will just suck up to those players who prefer not to think, but who like just to hop around while being brainafk :)

 

I don't plan on stopping to play AoC anytime soon and I'm gleefully waiting for the new adventure pack and the crafting revamp.

 

Those people who diss the game are just people who purchased their computer on some fleamarket and now complain, because a highend game won't run on it, or people who are just goddam lazy and prefer games like swtor or the upcoming gw2 that even a monkey without a brain can easily play.

I agree with you on some fronts on this one, i love AoC even bought the premium and gonna purchase the expansion pack to. see myself playing AoC for awhile now.   but i played gw2 betas and found it is "traditional in some ways" but for a Hotkey mashing game, i found it does put in some challenge compared to SWTOR, WoW etc.   I will also be playin gw2 to but i see myself spending most my time on AoC as ivve found the community is actually quite nice also.  on the GW2 betas ive found the community wasnt that great "everyone was just focused on lvlin and crud rather then having fun".  i havent really seen that on AoC.

 

Side Note: if anyone plays on SET   msg me on Oshiyii  :) i always love makin new friends.

AoC is a fine game for the most part, really only suffering from the lack of players. It's too bad that Funcom screwed up so bad with it that it just starting bleeding players on a regular basis. The community on the server that I played on was nice and as typical for low population games, everyone tended to be quite helpful.

 

Gameplay wise, GW2 combat is still superior even though I would definately put AoC over most. The difference lies in two main factors. 1) AoC attacks all roll for hit from the point that the combo is initiated. If you attack with a combo (really noticable with barb) and the opponent runs away while you're still progressing through the animation, every attack in the combo hits.  The other is that though melee classes had a good improvement in combat mechanics, the spellcasters have no improvment over the standard system.

I think that GW2 is a better game then AoC, but as a person that leveled a barb, necro, pom, conq, ToS to 80 and geared, enjoy your time with it because it is a good game.

All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

Yo that's me! I have always been a big fan of AoC. I don't log on much lately because I have played through most of the content, or all the content I care to play through. I am not big into PvP or raiding so I mostly grouped or played solo. I was in and out of guilds though. 
 
Just judging the game on the merits of  being a Conan RPG it is fantastic. Maybe as an MMO it had more flaws, but I didn't let that get in the way of my enjoyment! I was totally taken in with the beautiful settings, exhilarating combat, and adventuring through Hyboria with a sword on my back and a fine horse under me. I thought the game was a blast to play and was sorry to have played it out. 
 
I started playing just after the Godslayer expansion was released and on through the FtP conversion. The game was always light on population. Except for the month or two after the game went FtP, then it was really hopping with players. But soon it settled back to the regular numbers it seems to keep. AoC keeps a core fan base playing and enjoying the game that is large enough to keep the game afloat. I hope it sticks around for a while because I would like to return to the game after some additional content is put out for it.

Its a good game in my opinion. And if the company showed any love for the game after the launch i would probaly still be playing at this time since beta.

 

But they didnt. and the only thing good about this game if you are a quester  is still just Tortage, ofcourse they have other nice features and a great combat system but when a company pretends that bugs,glitches arent there and they still arent fixing it months later whe should just not bother at all.

 

If only they had listened to the community and showed some more love to this game it could have been one of the best games out there.

In my opinion age of conan is a great game offering alot of content after all patches and expansion. Its also not that grindy anymore, its same like othergames farm doungens and farm pvp.

The only problem i see in this game is the playerbase, in pvp you fight mostly the same people all over again.

Its my backup game, if im bored of anything i always log in playing some pvp in it.

I guess i will never have so much fun in pvp like in conan, all those skills and the timing you had to watch after all the experience the fights looked pretty dynamic and awesome.

Sure haters say pvp sucks and is imbalanced which is actually not, it was all a matter of skill but what ever its their opinion.
