I was thinking about this:

You know why no company these days can come up with a decent and fun MMORPG?

Because there already is one - it's called World of Warcraft. Duh!

Let's see who's going to be the first AoC fanboy/WoW hater to get his panties in a twist over this post, LOL.

You are basically right. Only time will tell if AoC can last as long as WoW. If the launch is any indication it should do fairly well.


I like both games so no fanboy here. ;)


Oh and I saw what you were trying to do there. :D

The only thing helping WoW over AoC is the system requirements. In a few years WoW will require a graphics overhaul (they are already mentioning it) and AoC will still look reasonably well and run like butter on new hardware.

I'm glad AoC is hardware demanding and 17+. Both help to keep kiddies off the game.

I'm no fanboy either. I've been in WoW since launch and will probably spend 4 years in AoC as well unless that Warhammer 40k MMO surfaces.

Some create their own woes in AoC by trying to run medium to high settings when the should be running low.

The OP and his semi-hidden white text stupidity is an shining example of the worst side of WoW. I always thought of idiot trolling as something done after a thread has been created - not the entire purpose of a thread. The best part of AoC is the M rating and high system requirements which will help keep the WoW kiddies and people with the mentality of the OP out of the game.

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

AoC in game - CTRL+ALT+F brings up a FPS counter. It's handy when tweaking graphics settings to stay smooth.

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

Tr1cK - Warhammer 40K is the sci-fi version of Warhammer. "40K" stands for the year 40,000 where this version of Warhammer is set. Warhammer Fantasy is what the upcomming MMO is based off of.

I like them both, but I've played WoW for 4 years and it's gotten stale. AoC is very fun and really could give WoW a run for its money once people start hitting max level and some balancing work is done.

I don't have a problem with WOW as a game, only some of the idiots that play it. I look at WOW as one huge piece of fly paper - it attracts all the players that I don't want in other games. I was playing LOTRO which has a tiny subscriber base compared to WOW, but the community is great. Even Vanguard with its miniscule player base is mature and friendly.

This is how I judge my MMO's and they way I will be judging AOC this coming month. It's the community that will be main reason I hit that re-subscribe button.

I apologize to all the decent friendly WOW players, as there are loads of you, for tarring you with the same brush.

Yep. Apparently I wasn't paying attention to detail.

4 years sound about right. Imagine designing an MMO from the ground up.

Oh for pete's sake relax. He was just having fun at the expense of fanboys.

The higher system requirements will not stop kiddies from getting the game. The will still get it but will be lagging around Hyboria on subpar systems. The M rating wont do much either. Besides, most the problems I had in WoW were 20 somethings who think they are actually adults. Blaming it all on the 13 year old is stupid. As if you 20 somethings actually are any better...

I put everyone in the same boat wrt MMOS. Here is how it goes. Either they are idiots jumping around. Idiots screwing you over. Or idiots screwing the guild over. The only difference is the older ones don't jump around as much while being a idiot. :D

The thing I hate most is jumping. I honestly ****ING HATE IT! That is all people do. Oh and don't get me started in a Battleground. Some ****tard is jumping around constantly doing flips. Then another dumbass is jumping around running away from you so they won't get killed. Oh and that brings another thing I hate about WoW, running away. You pussy! You where so ****y when you spat on me (while jumping) and tried to gank my ass in the bg. Now that I am kicking your ass you are running away? WTF!? Take your beating. I look at it this way. When you die you get full mana and health... RIGHT OFF THE BAT. When you run away you have to hide to drink and bandage and it takes longer. Who cares if you die. Just get in there and mix it up. People who think they are awesome because they have 40 kills and 3 deaths because they run away from fights they are losing are complete posers.

How friking awesome this game is. I am enjoying this as much as I enjoyed WoW for the first time. I would say that it may be a bit more enjoyable because the graphics are so damn nice.

I cannot wait to build a guild hall. The very idea is just cool to me.

Yeah I was looking at the land plots to build guild cities, the zones are absolutely amazing looking. Can't wait either. :)
