    What perfect timing I just canceled my account. More crap on top of crap and still no PvP patch. The only bummer is I was in a cool guild and they are trying to hang on for dear life.

    They should of kept the game in house and did another 6 months of dev before release. Instead they took what could have been a great IP and turned it into console fodder. For what they have built consoles might be a better market for it.

    Another week and no PVP patch.

    The more time passes by, the more I realize that content updates will launch with an expansion and the 360 bundle of the game. We're doing beta for the console players, face it folks. We fail.

    Yeah, most of what I saw was nothing more than minor bug zaps.  I don't hate Funcom or AoC, but I am very disappointed in the progress of this game.

    I likely will not subscribe to this game ever again.

    Is it true that there are bugs in the raid content that guilds can use to completely gear up their group in a night?

     

    Also heard that there are some well known exploits with the raid content that Funcom is not baning guilds for using?

     

    PvP focused games shouldn't be about the gear, but is it intended to be this way then?

     

    PvP focused games tend to have a system in place to add achievement to your efforts.

     

    I keep hearing AoC remains like Pong without a Scoreboard and more buggy.

     

    Dom, is any of this correct? Since there is someone who seems to be neutral party, i'm curious what your take is on it.  Because based on what i've read this is what i assume.

    Anyone noticed each time Funcom release a patch, lots of their supposed fixed are always written in conditional (should).   It's like they are never certain it will work....

  • AOCtesterAOCtester ReykjavPosts: 431Member

    There will be no patch tomorrow.  Only server maintainance.
