THEY HAVE MONEY. They still have money and had around 50 mil left when AoC came out, in fact they delayed the release. So really they never have run out of money to make the game, if you don't believe me check gamespot's site and Funcom's quarterly financial statement saying they are fine for cash flow issues.
To say that their content *when polished* will make WoTLK and WAR pale in comparison is pointless when nobody has seen the final content of all three games so to make assumptions is pointless.
I think AoC is a great game, I played it but for me I'll stick with WoW.
However, MMO developers really need to work on QA. I mean from what I have heard there are many major bugs that plague this game and hopefully they get resolved soon, but I think some of these bugs could easily have been fixed during beta. Sure some bugs pop up unexpectedly but when you have a whole TRADESKILL NOT WORKING, regardless of it it provides any good gear a tradeskill should atleast work rather than crashing the game.
Jun 22nd 2008 11:01PM They aren't gonna have a huge gear reset as they did in TBC. There will be a gear jump (not saying there isn't) but it won't be as much as when BC came out.
Jun 20th 2008 11:37AM In response to Nadril, they didn't run out of money and still have around 50 something million in the bank, it was along those lines and because of that they extended not shortened the beta.
"Funcom would also like everyone to know that its financial position remains strong, and it has a cash balance of $52.4 million as of the end of December."
Jun 20th 2008 12:32AM Well said, it's ironic because wasn't Blizzard gonna do a Warhammer MMO first but the deal was canceled and they decided to go with Warcraft?
Jun 19th 2008 7:52PM I think nobody expects WoW to be beaten right at the beginning and it's foolish for a CEO to come along and say publicly their game will kill the other and nobody will say their game will beat WoW.
I do think Warhammer could give WoW a run for its money and who knows what the future holds because Warhammer does look very promising. The thing is though it's hard to predict how successful a game will be before launch. Remember, even Blizz thought WoW wasn't gonna be as successful as it is now, so to make predictions one game will beat another or can't beat another is very hard to do indeed.
Jun 18th 2008 3:59PM Ya don't need a blue post to confirm it because its on their web site's patch notes.
4th point - Mounts at 30?! Yes, it’s true: Apprentice Riding and mounts are now available at level 30. Training costs 35 gold.
Great news for my druid alt :P
Jun 16th 2008 2:27PM Seems really promising, although I'd rather play Wow on a computer it can come handy when you have free time and don't have a computer nearby.
Mar 27th 2008 1:57PM I highly doubt we will be grouping at all, I mean really although I don't mind the current direction really it is Alliance vs. Horde and if I remember correctly Blizz said in an interview they aim to bring back that rivalry in WotLK starting with a new alliance leader "the anti Thrall" and bringing back that rivalry aspect.
Mar 26th 2008 2:46AM I think the biggest drama one was the 3rd with the gf being macked and all. Just goes to show anything can happen in a Wow Guild.
