Questions? We got Answers

A little update for those of you to let you know how things are going.


Beta is still progressing and more people are getting in. We are finally seeing some player tests of the cities as guilds on beta are building up their resources.

I mentioned in some of my first blogs here about our plans for the community site and the creation of a more in depth FAQ. That is now up internally and being populated with information. The goal with this "Community FAQ" is to draw from the questions asked on the official forums and other sources to create a library of information that can be viewed and commented on.

As most of you know I have tried to answer a lot of the questions that have been made in comments on the blog as well as a lot of Forum posts and what not in the past. Continuing these effort we have teamed up with the guys over at Tentonhammer to do an "Ask the Devs" Feature.

Essentially if you ask a question it will be moderated and if it is appropriate and not a "repeat" it will be posted here where myself or another one of the Dev team can answer. Once answered it will move to the answered question part of the forum.

Hopefully these same types of question and answers will also be what we are able to include in the Community FAQ to provide a robust resource.

When the game goes live at what percentage will the game be feature-complete, meaning of all of the features that have been discussed, promised what will be pushed. 

Also, what type of patch size and content can we expect on day one?

Cool. I hope they answer my question about spellweaving. How will spellweaving work?

We are constantly patching, as the size of patch on launch will be based on how much changes after the gold is burned for the CD's no way to tell on that.

I am reading that the zones are not designed like the typical MMO where you have the freedom to roam pretty much anywhere you want, and that there are invisible walls that let you see terrain but basically keep you on the road, on the beach, etc. Is that true?

Not really. The zones have large landscapes and backdrops which add to their size and impressiveness, if you reach the end of an area where all that you see before you is really "backdrop" and not playable area you may encounter a wall, but there are no walls keeping you on the road or on the beach in most areas.

It's sort of a catch 22 issue with the fact we did not want to wall every zone in with huge impassable looking mountains, but we still needed some way of limiting the play area.

  Hello again, Jason, and again thanks for sharing this space with us.

Today the forums (and many forums on different sites on the web) have been flooded with rumors that AoC is gonna have in-game advertising, people quote a paragraph very similar to the one in AO (which has in-game ads and free basic accounts program that have to see them), and i would like to hear your comments on this (i'm sure many others too)

Can anyone attack anyone no matter the lv on the PVP server or

will there be some kind of lv distance cap? Like One can only attack another who is... say...within ten lv's of each other?

If a Lv. 80 can attack any Lv they want can you give us an idea what kind of things will deter this? Bounty sytem ? whats that?
