I wonder if Bill "The Big Sushi" Roper uses crayons to sign his name on contract documents.

Without a doubt Flagship is selfish and irresponsible, amongst a LOT OF OTHER THINGS.

They made THE most expensive ARPG to date, maybe the most expensive game EVER for what you got for the price.

They charged customer "Founders" $150 and all they got was $80 worth of investment basically wasting $70.

They charged Subscribers $10 a month for ONE, thats ONE major content update for a total of $80.

Let's lay this out, the game was about the size of Diablo 2, it had 5 Acts, so for simple math lets say each Act would cost about $10 each if you bought the game at $50. Ok, Stonehenge, their ONE AND ONLY additional Act (Chronicle as they called it), which was about the size of one Act from the core game, cost subscribers $80 fucking dollars!!!!!! Thats 8x more then one Act from the core game. And not only that, but Stonehenge had NO Quests or additional story line to the game, all it ended up being was a sandbox to just run around in... for $80... RIP OFF.

Then they tried saying that the Subscription also gave you -

A D2 Cube Ripoff - Free with D2.
Shared Stash - Free with Guild Wars and Titan Quest:IT

And then the Cherry on top - IN GAME ADS

Just an unbelievable fucking greedy company. I don't feel bad for Bill "The Big Sushi" Roper at all, what a bunch of self serving bastards.

Glad to see the GREEDIEST game developer and that HORRIBLE $10 a month rental subscription business model fail, I can't believe these scumbags tried slapping a subscription on a Diablo 1/2 ARPG clone, the BIGGEST ripoff to ever hit he PC.

This game NEEDED to fail, this makes me happy.

would rather see their two tiered pay system fail.

Yes, I would rather not see future ARPG Developers pollute this genre with get rich schemes like Flagship is doing, create a good game and the money will come, create and expansion and you'll get even more.

Actually, it is free to play, it just has a micro-transaction system like most Korean MMO's. But you can d/l it and play it for free.

I'm not sure why Mythos is F2P and Hellgate is not as they are both made on top of the same engine (as a poster has already stated, Mythos stated off as a testbed for Hellgate).

I guess more FSS stupidity.

Mythos is a *cute* game, I find the sound effects to be pretty stupid though. And yes, D3 may have killed it even though it will probably have a year to a year and a half to exist before D3 is released.

As far as Hellgate:London is concerned, I'm not sure, as far as consumers go, who wanted a $10 a month rental subscription model so Flagship probably wasted MONTHS of programming the sub model when they could have added better, less repetitive MoBs and Tile sets. They also probably wasted to time coding in Microsoft's Massive Advert Engine product that also took away development time for the game.

The Hellgate:London rental subscription model has to be THE biggest ripoff in the history of PC Gaming. To date, there has only been one content update (Stonehenge that has ZERO quests or storyline, just a grinding sandbox and is ~ 1/5th of the core game that cost $40-50 at release) that has cost some subscribers up to $80 so far (twice as much as the core game itself).

I think the music in AoC is top notch and goes great with the game. I chose not to subscribe after the 30 day free trial because I'm still not over my burnout from playing YEARS of MMO's, that being UO->EQ->DAoC->CoH, etc. I did find leveling to be pretty smooth and quick for an MMO, which I liked a lot.

I think AoC is a good MMO, and maybe down the road I'll fire it up again.

D3 will be much more of the same, just with a 72" HD projector, and 150W DTS surround.

Wow, holy shit that sounds like a FUN way to game...


very jealous.

If they bother me, I disable them. Nice and simple.

You mean by the port hack? There is only one game to my knowledge that lets you disable them (CoH/CoV). I'm sure Massive (aka Microsoft) will find away around the port hack and disabling will be difficult.

I don't have a problem with in-game ads, as long as they are tastefully done and not distracting. It's all in the implementation. We already have advertising everywhere in our lives and there's money to be made - there's no point trying to act like gaming should be some special exception. All I hope is that it doesn't become as blatant as the shit in The Bourne Ultimatum.

See, this is the problem with attitudes like yours, you allow these adverts to slowly gain a strong foothold in gaming and when it is to late you will push back... sorry, to late.

I agree with the poster below, we started with skip able intro's like the nVidia ad at the beginning of a game, now there are Adverts IN THE GAME, and pretty soon loading screens WILL BE Adverts. If you don't like that then you need to start disliking what is happening TODAY.

To be fair, they're context relevant there. The only ads you see are in the subway on the wall or on a billboard in a world where they fit. I'd rather see real ads there than some made up crap that's just trying to be clever, it adds to the game.

And THIS is the typical HGL fanbois response on the HGL official forums about the in game adverts.

So YOUR gonna tell me that in the year 2038, after a demonic invasion that pretty much kills EVERYONE that survivors are gonna GIVE A SHIT about "Discovery's Deadliest Catch on Tuesday nights at 9 PM"?

Of course NOT, every piece of paper would be used for fire to keep warm or draw battle plans or even used for maps. It DOES NOT add to the game, it actually makes it feel LESS IMMERSIVE.

Have you even played HGL? Everything is wrecked, there are no TV's, no broadcast stations, nothing. The Adverts do not fit.

The Adverts are nothing but greed, period.

When you look at game site forums like Hellgate:London (yes, Hellgate:London HAS in game ads on top of their other rental subscription BS) the fanbois say they love the in game ads, but then again if Bill Roper shot a load on their face they would love that too.

Anyways, in game ads can fuck off. I want to play a game, not be sold to ALL THE TIME.

And I also agree that IF the game is FREE then I would tolerate in game ads, but when you have a company like FlagSHIT studios that charges $10 a month PLUS hosts in game ads those types of greedy developers can suck my ass.

casual gamers have no interest in keeping up with what gaming news is going down. SUPER casual gamers wouldnt even know what game they are playing or what they are playing on.

Wrong. And wrong.

if there isn't an issue with missing content in the 50s why have they announced that they are specifically adding content for around that level?

Where's that announcement? Not saying there isn't any shortage of quests as I don't have any idea but I haven't seen any official announcement about it. As always, more is better.

Once you hit about 50 you will realise that something is missing....

This is NOT what I am seeing from other players, there is a thread on the AoC forums about this right now, here are some excerpts...

I was kind of dreading my late 50s after reading the forums about no quests for those levels. But I am happy to report that this has not been the case, at least for me.

Oh yes, I will grind the handful of bubbles left to level if I run out of quests.....in a particular zone. But that was my choice to level up before moving to a different zone that I had quests in my logbook for. I have not yet at 60 ever been totally out of quests.

I was pleased to see I could handle (was a challenge)some of the early quests in Atzel's and Thunder River, at 57.

I also put on probably a full level doing by gathering quests. Not the most efficient way to get experience for sure, but it was a necessary task to help my guild erect its keep.

I just wanted to reassure those who, after reading the forums, have concluded that leveling in the 50s was going to be impossible without significant grinding. It's just not the case.

Be well.

--------------------------------------------------

Im in the same position as the op

I've never once had the bubble in questing that other people complain about, perhaps its because i move around and actually do all 3 main cities thier sub-areas worth of quests. *gasp*

Just because everything isnt laid out in a neat, easy to follow linear order, doesnt meant there arent things to do. Some of this game requires thinking, i know i know, thinking is a concept new to most of you mmo players.


I personally love all teh QQ's that come on here and say *waaah* theres no content, its so slow to level, the quests are boaring... Yet they have a level 80 and the games been out 3 weeks?

For whats harder to come by in the game (gold..mounts..tradeshit..) I think its a great trade off for how easy it is to level (especially since they lowered xp)

------------------------------------------

i second this. i am level 59 and have maybe spend 30 minutes grinding total. i still have about 25 quests in my quest log. i haven't even touched the main system yet. or any of those scaled instances like the oasis.

in my case, i think doing all the quests (or at least most of them) in the three level 20-40 areas was the key. finish off those grey quests in khopshef, conall's, and wild lands. and yeah, do those gathering quests. and the crafting quests.

you also don't have to repeat the repeatable quests to prevent grinding. i've done each villa quest twice, and not a single bounty quest more than once.

But there seems to be a lot of debating about it with some having no issues and some saying you have to grind.

So far I like the game, the music is GREAT and fits the Conan world perfectly. The gore is very funny and the graphics are excellent (and kill my rig in the process keeping up). I am a SUPER casual gamer so I am only level 15 so I haven't seen any grinding issues yet, I feel like I'm playing GW on steroids so far and like it. I personally haven't run into any bugs but I'm sure they exist.

I think it deserves an 8/10 so far, I've been very pleased with it, definitely one of the better MMO launches to date.

Notice that the people who are loving the game are quite low lvl, you can get to lvl 30 in about 10-15 hours of solo playing. (Depends on what class you are playing)

Once you hit about 50 you will realise that something is missing....

What level are you in the game? What server?
