Are you like me: disappointed by the current state of AoC, the moderation trend and the direction of the game?
Don't you think this game has so much potential that it's a shame not to do better?
First it was PvP consequences and revamp then it's itemization, not to forget the changes in combos.
Is FunCom aiming at the magic ball that'll make the game wonderful... NGE anyone?
I find it funny nearly one year after my departure from AoC my sticky in the suggestion forum is still up. And nothing that was really important changed.
So far FunCom is wasting their precious time on major changes without fixing the minor ones that would improve a lot the game. Sure you'll get DX10 and items that counts but with a lame UI, no character customization, still too many instanced zones and a degraded combat system.
If there was a major change to be made first, it would have been to replace the actual combat mechanics with a real combo system. That would have made the combat more FUN and challenging. Instead they dumbed it down and done nothing to balance melee vs casters classes in terms of key usage.
Itemization is going the WoW way. Not only they are 100% certain to loose the war against Blizzard on this one, but the thing that made the game different from WoW is just going away in the next patch. Pretty sure they are eager to add item decay and make you grind to repair your stuff.
Even better the limited choice of items will be catered down as players will have to choose either to look cool or be efficient. On that topic it has been clearly stated by Craig that the look isn't important and that players want efficient items.
“Oh well I might as well use my level 60 sword, ’cause it looks cooler.” It just doesn’t feel right.
It seems they missed the fact that there are not less than 9 entries in the sticky regarding character customization.
Also how did they miss the UI part? It was a real fast and easy quick win that would have made many player happy each time they interact with vendors, friends, guild mates, environment, etc.
Even more funny the M stuff. Supposedly the game is aimed at more mature players; still the medusa spell doesn't has nipples and when you invoque a succubus she tells you: opps sorry, brb has to grab a g-string. How come a demon wears underwear?
And other games have not only more mature content but also some of them have working parental lock system.
Now as constrcutive criticisim I'd say
