I played AoC from release and played for months solid ... Then dropped to a couple of times a week, The game had massive potential and if it wasn't rushed out like 1.5 years to early would have been a massive hit imo.
As soon as people started to find the bugs they started dropping like flys.
The graphics, Fight system, Music & the world of Hyboria was just beautiful & just seemed so alive, Like no other mmo Ive played.
Shame .... I will always have good memories of AoC,
