    Well you came and you gave without taking

    but I sent you away, oh Mandy

    well you kissed me and stopped me from shaking

    And I need you today, oh Mandy

     


    yeah the AoC forums are xploding over the changes. It seems like funcom are just willy nilly

    making changes. it almost seems like they are going out of their way to piss people off.. I feel sorry for those CM guys. I truly wonder if the different funcom departments know ehat the others are doing. :( I bought the CE, I,played y first month, I canceled and it doesn look like there will be a reason for me to return any time soon.

    I can't believe they changed the rhinos and mammoths to only be usable at level 80 in a siege area. Seriously, wtf is Funcom smoking?  I would like to buy a pound of that good stuff.

    Well if this is true (and I am assuming it is - not doubting you OP but sometimes info here is hard to believe), then you can officially count me out. I will be done with Funcom and Age of Conan for good.



    I bought these as mounts and everywhere on the pre-order information it says mounts and usable at level 40.



    This to me would be the final insult to all players and especially people who pre-ordered.

    This patch will not be a fail until we hear from AmazingAvery defending it. Until then i will reframe form my opion.

    not true about the rhino's and mammoths...you cant use them in main towns and resource areas...not a big deal...nobody wants 20 mammoths at the trade post..

    and as far as the gems i could care less..ALL gems were scaled..so who is nerfed? everyone is on equal ground...big whoop

    not a funcom defender but i hate when people cry NERF ! skills and items need to be tweaked through out the entire game life...u get nerfed one patch..later on you get buffed...who cares

    I can't even begin to list the ways I feel insulted as a gamer by the consistent lies and complete disregard for their customer base as a whole.

    I'd be interested to hear of one buff since release that compares to the myriad of nerfs. I mean one big buff to anything that compares.

    This is priceless... FC is nerfing the Pre-Order mounts?  Dissing the guys who had the faith to order the game before it was released?

    What exactly was wrong with Pre-Order mounts?  I didn't notice any with my Ranger's Rhino before I quit this fiasco.

We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and a constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold."

    Sorry been unsubscribed before I was even billed for the first month. :)



    I did go read the forums and it seems that not working in the cities was intended (not sure why) but they *should* be working in other zones. of course, this could be Funcom back tracking and saying "Oops didn't really mean that one". Who knows and at this point who cares? The game is on a fast track in a downward spiral and unless there is a "miracle" hidden somewhere, I have little faith in the game or Funcom at this point. 9And this coming from someone who paid upwards of $70 to see them at Dragon*con).

    I'm a pre-order player and that is the final nail in the coffin for me, those idiots can go fuck themselves, I'm cancelling my account today.

    Oh and Avery what do you make of all this!? you going to come riding in and defend this pathetic piece of shit company again and again and again...? Please I would be interested if it is humanly possible to put a positive spin on this slap in the face.

    I can't understand what the point was of nerfing mammoths either, no-one was seriously using them as mounts in City areas anyway, but if you are going to do something like that then you should at least tell people rather than turn it into another diplomatic disaster by doing it on the quiet.

    I think I used mine once when I got to level 40, then when I finished laughing I decided that to save it for Birthdays & Xmas. Maybe it is useful in sieges, but outside those it's just a novelty item so why nerf it?

    If you can't "Have your cake & eat it too", then how can "The proof of the pudding be in the eating"?

  • octaocta Montreal, QCMember UncommonPosts: 245

    This was the last straw for me.  What's worse is the community manager posts that it's working as intended to be used only in sieges then about a half hour later says it's only the cities. 

    Their developers don't know how to communicate things to their users and that more than anything is AOC's greatest failing.

    You would think a developer with prior experience in an MMO that lasted for 7 years would know better than to jerk around its userbase.

    Well I guess now that the pre-order money is all collected up, guess they feel there is no point on giving those ppl what they paid for.  One of the cool features n reasons why I pre-ordered this game...as I am sure with many others. Kinda sad that they took away something that their loyal fans bought up on.

    I was thinking of giving this game a whirl again, but looks like it will hardly be worth the time to update...let alone the $15.

    I can not find any old advertisement anymore, but the Mammoth and Rhino never were meant to be regular mounts. The Pre-order mounts were only ever supposed to be used in the resource and building playfields and in the siege areas.

     

    I clearly remember the advertisements stating that the pre-order mounts would be siege mounts.

     

    Due to a bug at launch of the game the mounts were available in all areas where regular mounts could be used. This was a BUG, so today's patch will not be a nerf, but rather a bug fix.

     

    Of course people have gotten used to the mounts now and it's a bit of a kick in the balls, but if you go back to the original advertisement, i am sure you'll see that it never was intended to be anything but a sieging mount.

    Well i dont recall that actually, I do recall them saying there would be a variety of mounts some of them USABLE AS SIEGE WEAPONS, but they were all announced as regular mounts not as exclusive siege weapons.

    According to the new MMORPG Game Correspondent every thing is hunky dorie with the Game, therefore i can not see why there is any reason to post all this negativity. Im sure you hater's are just jelious of this outstanding product.

    Ah, no, he's turned to the dark side already. It must be Avery then :)

    No its not Avery, have not seen him in several days. Though the Correspondent sounds like him so one wonders.

    as i said, i can't actually find an add anymore, but i am pretty sure that they were advertised as siege only mounts ;)

     

    either way - it's a bit sad to change it now after the game has been live for 2 months, but that is MMOs for you.

  • SBE1SBE1 New York, NYMember Posts: 335

    If the require you to be lvl 80 and in the seige zones to ride the mounts, perhaps this is how Funcom thinks it is providing end-game content.   Yes, everyone will want to ride their mount in the seige zone, so that should get folks there and start seiging!!!!

    Laugh.  I am so glad I cancelled this POS game.
