This past May marked the 7th year from the atrocious launch of this MMO. The industry was forever changed; seeming to mark the downward decent of the MMO genre into mediocrity and eventual free to play marketing. I posit that Age of Conan was the catalyst for this shift. A multi million boondogle that served to rob us of our cash on the promise of features that would never see the light of day simply for the short term gain of box purchases.
I learned that year:
Tortage was excellent once the major bugs were squashed but the player base quickly realized there was a hollow shell of a game beyond those borders.
Funcom continues to be a malignant tumor in the industry, more concerned with its bottom line than the quality of their effort. They wasted and disused our trust and they boldly challenged us to do something about it.
I hope the current state of Age of Conan is a lesson learned for any others wishing to sell us their snake oil.
I will never forget. I will never forgive.
