I played Age of Conan for 18 months (and subbed for 24), and I knew I was going to buy the game waaay before the preorders started. I even had the opportunity to have Joel show it to me in January and try out the closed beta for 5 hours. Then they opened up shop - and look , there was this shiny life time sub. I really like to buy things cash, so I just went for it.
A few days later I got into the closed beta, right after setting up my computer at The Gathering http://www.hardware.no/artikler/10-jungeltips-til-deg-som-skal-pa-the-gathering/107899 where I went to game and socialize for 4 days with my girlfriend. Yeah, she keeps dragging me along, I try to keep smiling.
The game did give a really solid impression, but at the same time it felt like a rough gem. Quite a lot of the beautiful artwork was missing and the combat was a lot harder early on. It took some time for the game to grow on me, but the day I got a group for Polaris / Hell Risen I was sold. I had raided for so much of AoC that I knew that a game with starter dungeons this good was going to be entertaining like hell.
What sold me when it comes to mood was doing The League of Monster Slayers mission. The kid inside of me grins all through that quest.
I was hoping Funcom had learned from AoC that they needed to add some content post launch, and it did seem so from the hints they dropped. I was hoping for updates maybe every other month, so when they just recently came out and said they were doing it every month, I was really happy.
Why did you get the life time sub?
