craynlon writes: well with all that hatred against conan and all the fanboys defending it it will simply come down to economics. if they cant keep people that go back to wow or will go war they are hurting themselves. they have a good game (imho) but without throwing money onto the game conan will be just one mmo amongst others like lotr/ l2/ ddo with a small marketshare but not really the heavyweight they should be. as with ddo the mistakes/ broken promisses made at the launch will give the game a almost permanent bad rep they wont be able to fix later.

Lizante writes: LOL. Mr, Wood, thanks for at least trying to get the Erling Ellison to talk about FunCom's broken promises -- what FunCom promised in AoC that was omitted and/or broken at launch besides DX-10 (Ellison couldn't even admit FunCom lied about DX-10). Again, as posted before, the launch went smoothly. The launch product was and, 3 months after launch, remains a *Closed Beta Product.* Mr. Wood, the question that really matters is "When will AoC be the release quality product FunCom hyped ad nauseum before the game went live in May? Inquiring minds want to know :P AoC cannot continue to bleed subscriptions into the fall, they need to turn this around now by fixing the game now. Fri Aug 01 2008 10:08AM Report

aurick writes: Well, he was right in that most of the promised features did indeed make it into the game at launch. What he completely avoids is the fact that most of the really big, key features -- you know, things like 200 vs. 200 siege warfare, deep and meaningful crafting, etc. -- were never beta tested and badly broken at launch. In fact, most of them are broken to this day. The really telling point, though, is how he says this was the first time he ever heard the rumor about mature content being removed from the game. There have been multiple threads in AoC's forums on this subject for weeks now, and they tend to get pretty lengthy. Thank you, Mr. Ellingson, for demonstrating just how out of touch you really are!

dbell1967 writes: Well this is obviously not the popular sentiment but I am quite happy with AoC so far.

severius writes: LOL Erling won't cop to the fact that the only reason that the content thins out is because of one simple fact: They had enough content from 1 to 80 then a couple weeks before launch they decided people leveled too fast, so they slowed it down which of course left the game devoid of content where there once had been plenty. Also funny how he takes the words of the ravenous fanbois (which have been proven wrong) in quoting the term: "Miracle Patch". Keep seiges and raids weren't launch features? They aren't major features? What about blood money, drunken brawling and more? So glad i do not pay to play this p.o.s. Might become worthwhile when it goes ad supported free to play :P Nice how at the end he says that they may cut the maturity down in the future but that he doesn't know of any plans to do so :) Fri Aug 01 2008 10:23PM Report

Obiyer writes: As someone that was really looking forward to AoC -- hoping to get started in the next few days if my new build goes okay. Most of the problems I see are temporary ones such as the addition of new features and I think Mr. Ellingson proves this. As per my experience with Funcom which I can get from Anarchy Online, I have a feeling most of you will be pleasantly surprised in the long run. Then again, I hope that Funcom will give AoC the same dedication that their previous game had in terms of content and the way they interact with the community. Anarchy Online did have a bad launch from what I've read and it recovered splendidly. Funcom are industry veterans and I forsee them taking the necessary actions as stated by Mr. Ellington to deliver a good product. It might take awhile is all. Sat Aug 02 2008 1:16AM Report
Vesavius writes: Best MMORPG interview I have ever read. Good job. Gotta love Obiyer below me... No offence friend, but you will see once you have played this game for 1-2 weeks why people feel like they do about AoC. Right now, you have the comfort of ignorance. FC has admitted openly that L1-79 are simply solo ez mode non-thinking practice for L80 raids and PvP... The reason content is sparse? They simply don't care about the inbetween game (L21-79) at all. AoC is simply crap. Great interview though, kudos. Btw, I agree with the personal boycotts against FC for how they have 'misprepresented' and failed this game. At least the billing system was working well at alunch though eh Erling? Hilarious. Sat Aug 02 2008 1:46AM Report

I don't care what they do to the game in the future. I won't give people who do what Funcom did with a game release more money. /rant off Sat Aug 02 2008 1:59AM Report

zindel writes: The part I love is when Erling is defending AOCs sparse content and tries to rationalize his statement by claiming WOW released in the same manner. THE ONLY dungeon that was semi compareable to the 14x (original released) level 1-50 dungeons found in Warcraft, was Sanctum, and that is being very charitable. The combat system and class design in AOC is so weak and broken it's not even funny. Classes lack strong definitive roles and utility, which means team strategy and tactics in AOC are essentially reduced to a small group of different colored humans with analogous abilities, racing through boring voids of space as fast as possible and monkey F'ing everything in sight by carefu....haphazardly mashing buttons. This game sucks and will never be great because the foundation of combat and classes are weak, unvarying and don't allow for anything meaningful or interesting to happen.

If you ever get another interview chance, mention PVP class balancing and see how bad he chokes up. There is no worthwhile content at 80. The dungeons are on a weekly timer and players that are still subscribed log in a couple times a week. Even popular servers are seeing massive decline in the playerbase. Mention server merges too if you get the chance :) http://rabblog.com/ Tue Aug 12 2008 4:03AM Report

woody1974 writes: AOC Rocks for alot of people, so ignore all the negative comments, AOC is better than WOW ever was and ever will be. Funcom don't worry about the nay sayers, alot more of us that think the game rocks over the number of complainers. It is a very small number of haterz compared to those of us who understand and are patient. Wed Aug 13 2008 9:16AM Report

thark writes: Hmm...So..What do you guys wan't him to say..??? -We are sorry, all went wrong and the game is just going down the drain..?? Seriously, no market dude would ever be really truthful.. Ofcourse, he will say that all is well and the game is fantastic.. Honestly, I think he did a rather good job in answering those questions.. And Yeah..Drunken Brawling is a small feature and considering the game looks as well as it does, even DX 10 is a small feature.. Wed Aug 13 2008 3:44PM Report
