Aug 6th 2008 7:36PM I got my hopes up when I first saw this.
But thought that it was too soon. Being that the date is embedded in the image I think that the date is still going to be significant.
What if the marketing arm mixed up the Open Beta start date with the Release date!
I'm crossing my fingers and putting my money on an August 23rd start to open beta.
Mar 28th 2008 2:40AM Looking at the MMO landscape they are going to be loosing out on so many potential customers. With. Providing Age of Conan doesn't get a similar delay again they are looking very solid to pick up the switching/swingin MMO audience.
Those dissatisfied WoW players who are currently in limbo waiting for the next big thing are a big proportion of the Audience Mythic needs to attract to get runs on the board.
Many would have gone back to WoW with all the 2.4 shinyness of which I am also doing. But they will invariably want for more sooner.
Enter Age of Conan.
Those players get into it and start levelling and working towards end game. Now I'd suggest Mythic has a very small window to attract these swing players. A couple of months of Conan will either entice them to stay or make them yearn for the good old days of WoW.
Now around that time they are going to be dragged back to Lich King. That will be a timesink thats keeps people on the blizzard train for quite some time.
A long open beta with a lot of fanfare my be their only saviour because at this stage a large portion of their Audience is going to be DOAC people wanting DAOC 2.
Lest just hope they don't go the way of Imperator with this one.
Mar 14th 2008 8:53AM I wish I was still a true believer and this game offered SO much.
But all I am is dissapointed champions will be worth a look but in reality its all a cheap consolation.
The talk of game play was interesting but the immersion in a world that True Believers so desperatly wanted to immerse themselves in was the big draw card.
As news of this MUO became more frequent so did my excitment to truely enter the mavel univers to the point it reignited my interest in the comic fanchise.
I eagerly anticipated the next news item regarding MUO.
I'll probably look at Champions as something different to the current MMO drudgery. Some one let me know when it really starts.
Until then I have lost my belief in Marval and Cryptic for both games and comics.
