Alex Weeks, the Community Manager of Auran's Fury answers questions from Managing Editor Jon Wood about the recently announced Age of the Chosen update to the PvP-centric MMO. Among other things, Age of the Chosen will be adding a new game type, called Carnage, to the game.
It’s been a while since we’ve spoken. How do you feel things have gone since launch? Are you happy with the way that Fury is progressing?
The launch was pretty smooth from a technical standpoint. We had some early database lag issues which were quickly addressed, and we've made a number of improvements to client performance in the last few patches. In terms of numbers, however, it's fair to say that they've been rather underwhelming. Reviews have, frankly, sucked. There is no doubt that the learning curve and lower than expected populations meant new players would be thrust into battle against veterans and get “pwned”. That’s no fun for anyone.
With Age of the Chosen, our first free content update due to release on 14th December, we expect to see many previous players return and some new players join the fun. Age of the Chosen will address many of the big concerns noted in reviews and community feedback, so it will definitely be a big step forward.
