    Man... this was a thread with a lot of pooha and seeing every grey cloud in a silver lining.

     

    AgtSmith, get a grip! Jeez...  if you'd been my wife I would have started drinking, nag, nag, nag.

    Downtime was extended, yes, so suck it up!

     

    And for those who so gleefully want to make it a character identification of Funcom and the capability of FC employees, well, we know you people would gloat about anything that'd go amiss with AoC anyway, eh? Nag, nag, nag, gloat, gloat, gloat.

     

    Alright, gonna download the new content - yes, that's the thing that people do that like to play the game instead of trying to find fault in ANYthing Funcom does or AoC does wrong.

    Wow the QQ here is strong...  Look the game has come a long way and the company is really tryen to make our sandbox fun give them some slack.      No I did not say this game is a sandbox game.  Its a theme park.   I meant the sandbox in which we play;P   "hides from the flames"

    A man or "gamer" should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be.

    I dunno, but downtime for a HUGE expansion, especially the day of it never bothers me.

    But looks like everyone who went ape poo bananas over the delay got to play, so everything worked out eh?

    Hehe again I can laugh at idiots expecting Funcom to provide the game at day 1 and never take it down. It is Funcom - they can't get it right for the first time. THat's why I don't own expansion yet but rather waiting on all emergency fixes to be deployed. F it. That's how they do things - but eventually they get it right. Getting expansion for the weekend or next week.

    Callo, DX9 crashed every 3 minutes or so. As to DX10, check these screenshots, and take special attention to the FPS at top left of screen :)

    Yeah I have been with funcom on and off for 5 or 6 years. I learn ... obviously majority doesn't. (why do you think I missed first few months of retail also? )And whinning about it will help only to lower the number of copies sold and players to kill in game. Nothing else. So you guys should really stop this. The pizza analogy on the official forums is way off - you don't need as many people as you can get to eat pizza with you. but you need them to play game wiht you.

    But this is weird since I ddin't have crashes in beta

    ya, and sieges worked on test live also -_-

     

    btw, if no one plays this game, and it dies, that's not my problem.

    Not that I believe that posting negatively about this company on these forums will have an impact on this though. They are racking in tons of cash.

    Mate, they make a bonus pack with a few ingame pets and people pay 20 euros more lol

    One last thing, if they fuck up on certain things I care about :

    - sieges

    -pvp content

    - very long downtimes and extended downtimes at launch

    - crashes and low fps and lag making the game unplayable

    I'm not going to stfu just because I fear that some people might not play it and the game will die, what kind of messed up logic are you using again? lol

    On the contrary, I'll say it to everyone I know.

  • nihcenihce Member Posts: 539

    Well, there is no fucked up logic here. Only good solid one (have you ever seen me been wrong? I even left futi when I saw that the managing will bring fury to boring clusterfuck). Look, you like this game right? After all you are paying it and playing it. It is in your best interest to have many people to fight - not like lolfuti and lolnas who have 0 competition right now. This is game that is supposed to be massive. 

    And no, your posts alone won't. But whole community + haters quoting you, could. It is not in your best interest to end up in  a dead town, is it?

     

    (oh not to mention that more subs bring more work force = faster fix for sieges in fury :D )

    Let's not jump to conclusions; before the patch the game was running fine, i'm sure they will fix all the problems.

    If it would be the Hardware then - A: why did everything run fine before the BIG update?



    B: Why does it run all fine without any errors, crashes or lags in DX10 which requires even more performance (more Memory/Resource "tanking" included) ???

    I'm currently stuck in the loading screen to Northern Grasslands.It's the third consecutive time I'm stuck on the loading screen to that area and I can't zone,also meaning,I don't have access to my char.It's like he's stuck in Twilight zone.No way in,no way back.

    I had plenty crashes before 2.0 but now it's the worst I've seen so far.

    Now I can't even zone,even after game reboot.



    UPDATE:



    I manage to finally zone in the 4th attempt.I clicked on the NPC and after 5 seconds I crashed again.

    In the 5th attempt I managed to zone after a veeeery loooong loading time ( I thought it was gonna get stuck again ).I started running around and as soon as I started moving the camera around,I started losing fps.It reached 3fps and after that.....crashed again.



    Somehow managed to get out of there back to Cimmeria and Conarch village was no problem for me at all.

    No khitai for me,at least not for as long as those crashes occur.Gates to Khitai are sealed tight after all.

    You perma-crash in Northern Grasslands nonetheless - Mounted or not - but only in DX9!



    I have restarted the game in DX 10 like an hour ago - no issues at all... not a single crash, lag or a freeze since then - Nothing, so it looks like DX9 is a bit screwed at the current state and i dont think it's in any way Hardware related as i didnt have a single issue with AoC before the RotGs update went live!

     

     

    LOL again mate then, cause you're right, sieges work fine.

    default Why are FC ignoring PvP issues?




    The PvE side of the game is going pretty well, not many bugs anymore, T3 open and a full PvE expansion about to release. What about PvP?



    The state of PvP content:



    Minigames: Broken. random vs. premade minis and no penalty for leaving makes the likelihood of a 6v6 match extremely small.



    Sieges: Broken. Lag and crash, that's all.



    Bori: Broken. At the moment I shouldn't even list this since my post is about PvP, not PvR&T (player versus rock&tree).



    Add to this that there is no FC reply on the PvP forums for the first 3 pages. It's obvious FC are ignoring PvP, my question is why? They make a game with awesome potential for PvP, then ignore all problems that arise with their flawed systems for it.

    ..



    I'd also disagree with your assessment of what is 'broken' and what isn't. While a degree subjective for sure, the majority of what you mention isn't 'broken' at all. The mini-games and the Shrines content is working, and working well, and serving their intended role in general gameplay.







    The siege performance is definitely in need of improvement, and there, on many occasions that performance does prevent players from enjoying the content as much as we would like. There I can agree that it still isn't where it should be, and we will be working on improving that after the expansion.







    ...







    So no, the PVP features aren't a focus right now, for these weeks while the expansion launches. The expansion is our focus. That though does not mean anything is being ignored, just that it has to take it's place in the queue while we work on the expansion launch.



    Again, we will be taking a look at some further PVP improvements and possible additions after the expansion.

    You are obviously trolling, but I'm taking the time to respond reasonably for the sake of anyone reading this :XD

    1. Sieges still lag and crash, in fact, it's so bad now that there are only 2 guilds sieging on Fury....

    2. Bori content does not promote PvP, it promotoes playing at 5am on empty zone or transferring to hyrkania

    3. The game director is happy with bori content and minigames while most players on fury (pvp server) hate them.

    4. The game director himself did admit that there was a problem with sieges in the above post.

    5. If the problem was coming from my hardware, why was I able to play the game fine (except for mass pvp) until last night's patch? And more specifically, until I entered the Khutai region.

    So tell me again why you are laughing? :)

    The effect that this has or potentialy may have or whatever is irrelevant because what matters is clear honest and true information.

    I don't believe my posts + community + haters quoting me will have a big effect anyway, but even if it had, you don't think Funcom thought of that?

    This is called word of mouth, and it goes a lot faster thanks to internet, but it has to be based on what players really think and feel, not some bullshit fanboy propaganda.

    There is enough fanboy posts on these forums anyway.

    I feel sorry for you Sirpaco, its like you are fighting for human rights at some prehistoric age. today game companies can get with these things, its ok, its the norm. In 10-20 years though, when every politician and his cute puppy know what a mmo is, when everything about the international money transaction rules, regulations have been ironed out, they will squeeze them blls so hard even the green folk on mars will hear their cry. At least thats me hoping.

    Why don't you get it? You are pissing in your own bowl ... how is that good? Complaining about downtime is neither good for you nor for funcom. Not even for people who consider subscribing is not. it is just plain old bitching

    NA patching just started.  Weeeee

  • finaticdfinaticd Member Posts: 843

    Crashing is not much an issue as Funcom can just take another two years to fix that like sieges, it is all good. However, the fact that Funcom staff are once again saying it is a player side issue is pretty disturbing. There is nothing wrong and if there is it is the player's issue is a pretty poor attitude.  From experience of issues it goes like this:

    1) Nothing is wrong

    2) It is probably your issue with hardware or drivers or software.

    3) There may be an issue but we don't know what it is or how to fix it.

    4) We are going to patch something in during the next patch.

    5) Well that didn't work so well so wait 5 months and we will patch it in during the next patch.

    6) then it starts over if there is still an issue like Fury sieges.

     

    In this case it is a PvE issue so it will probably get more priority than siege crashes which took two years to resolve.

    Funcom has reviewed all of its assets relevant for
    impairment testing. This process has led to
    recognition of an impairment loss of around
    3,1 MUSD for Age of Conan due to a decrease in

    Well, SirPaco, fortunately, this expansion is just right for me - an off-MMO while I raid hard modes in ICC (easy stuff now) and wait for Cataclysm. AoC now provides tons of stuff to do, especially for pveers, hehe. However, I still cannot take the company seriously and I "pledge my allegiance" to Blizzard any day. For example, do you know how much time it takes for Blizz to hotfix such stuff - nothing, just server restart.

    I play on Crom, nice server, and the new Gateway to Khitai is just breathtaking. However, my fps is basically halved in that zone and lagspikes every 30 mins or so.

    Additional content is always welcome, ofc, but after 2 years I'd also like to see the increase of Funcom's professionalism and competence, namely performance and client stability.
