    Also, apparently there is a problem with the framerates on Windows 8, and Funcom conveniently  "aren't supporting" Windows 8.  Considering AoC still runs like a dog after all of these years I don't hold up much hope of resolution, it;s just a dog of an engine.

     

     

     

     

    I'm not so sure it's the game.  I'm on a gtx550ti video card and can run on dx11 maxxed settings without issues...

    Lifetimers didn't really get screwed despite the mental misconception here :

     

    Grandmaster pack : Lifetime subscription to the game, still have to pay additional money in cash shop for clothing, pets, titles etc. 10% discount in store.

     

    Grandmaster after B2P : 1200 points a month to instantly buy the new content (so still included then free, for lifetime, without any additional out of pockets cost) AND leftover points can be used on cosmetics from cash shop.  Plus the discount is now 20%.

     

    Where exactly did we get screwed?  I'm actually getting more for my lifetime sub now than I did before.

    honestly, I've no problem at all playing TSW in windows 8. It works as a charm. 

    and my pc has only QUAD CORE as CPU, ATI 4600 1G as GPU......

    Then you should really try the trial period. The character creator is not superb as it is in EVE Online, but definitely not as bad as they say.

    There are few games that can match Eve's cc, although when I last played that (in Beta) it was only a portrait.

    No doubt I'll give the TSW trial a shot at some point.
