    All are losing subs, Aion may be the healthest it is the newest. Aoc the worst. that is how i see it.

    I see it so that Aion is losing subs very fast, Warhammer is dying and AoC doesn't have many subs either, but is gaining them very slowly. Most stable and enjoyable gaming experience I would expect from AoC, now and in the future.

    thanks, no loyal WAR player here can give me any insights about how the game is going?

    most people play WAR and get bored fast because its focus is the RvR which is isn't what was expected...I played for a bit and got bored with it....it's not a bad game, it's just not the type game that will hold people for too long...

    I never played Aion, know nothing about it, and will probably never play it because it does not appeal to me...

    I am currently playing AoC...I really like it...if you are into open world PvP and dont mind gankers, then Cimmeria is a good server...its a fun game and is in much better shape than it was...

    PLAYING: NOTHING!!!
    PLAYED:FFXI, LotRO, AoC, WAR, DDO, Megaten, Wurm, Rohan, Mabinogi, RoM

    WAITING FOR: Dust 514

    All three games had good releases with big box sales. Since Aion was the most recent, they are losing players at a higher rate, but they still have the most subs. AoC seems to be very slowly regaining subs and has an expansion on the way. Content is good for leveling in AoC. All 3 games are pretty dead at max level.

    my friend plays aion.

     

    it's not a game I'd play but it's...okay. The game has some potential. I don't know if it's carried by graphics or what it is but it's decently populated.

    the only good thing I can say about Aion is that publicly executing goldspammers by GMs is awesome.

    while the game has its issues, it has a more decent crafting system than WoW for example and it's a game you can play longer without realising 'i got nothing left to do'. I don't know the state of its endgame, but i guess there isn't a whole lot of it in yet. Still, looking at its plans for future, it's getting more polished and it might make it as a stable game. Who knows. It's still a fairly young game and it needs some time.

    I still have faith in Aion to become a good game, but the other 2 on your list have pretty much 'passed' already in terms of success. Of the 3 I'd pick Aion.

    Hi

    Just thougth i'd point out AOC,i myself had a mare in the first beta frankly it was abyssmal but took up the free starter isle trial and was very pleasently suprised,Funcom certainly have come a long way that's for sure What really impressed was the fluidity of combat and the combo moves and fatalaties were something different and refreshing,i'm hard to please but if u can try the triai it's worth a look still waiting for STO,but AOC with the new expansion is on my backburner so to speak as is Secret World

    Currently in FE so as u can tell i like my paid Mo's to have something a little different gamewise.

    Meh, it's easier to just download the unlimited free trial and see for yourself, or check their forums.  Just because some of us got bored at the empty RvR zones doesn't mean everyone will.  Besides, based on some of your posts from the last week, your taste in games is a tad sketchy, in my opinion, so you're better off just trying it yourself.

     IMHO WAR has some very interesting classes but the game does get tedious fairly quickly and the end game is lacking. However it's worth the trial to see if you're interested because it is different. One of the most annoying problems I found with the game is that early level combat is very slow and plodding which I think is a major mistake, but they added it for realism and it does get better.

    AoC also has several interesting classes, the biggest problem I had with the game was getting past the changes after you left Tortage. It has been awhile since I played this game though and I understand there has been some improvements but I haven't really kept up. I'm sure someone else has a more updated opinion on this.

    Aion, I was involved in the beta but never bought this game, it just seemed to lack something but again this was beta and several months ago. Again, others will have better insight.

    Goods luck whatever you choose.

    Played in some form:
    UO til tram, AC, EQ, AO, WW2O, PS, SB, CoH, AC2, Hor, LoTRO, DDO, AoC, Aion, CO, STO
    Playing: WoW (for gf), WAR
    Waiting For: SWTOR, FFXVI
    Hoping For: DCUO, Secret World, Earthrise
    -S- (UO Sonoma)

    I've played all three. Warhammer is losing subscribers as is Conan. Conan has a lot of potential but lacks content past the early levels. Warhammer is pretty much old school and has been surpassed due to just better being out there.

     

    Aion is top notch. Not sure who is saying they are losing subscribers. That's just bull as they are adding servers always and they post the number of subscriptions in their quarterly statements. keeps going up. It is a good game to play and a lot of fun.
