Age of Conan Director Leaves Citing Dissatisfaction with Game

Very known Funcom producer and game director Gaute Godager has left Funcom Company, on Sep 17.
In his, published statement, he said:
“I have done my very best making this fabulous game, but I have concluded there are elements which I am dissatisfied with. I have decided to act on this, and as a result I have chosen to leave Funcom. It is time to get new, fresh eyes on Age of Conan,” (i think it’s mostly about bugs)
Gaute Godager will be replaced by Craig Morrison,  who was very important figure in Anarchy Online project, he was producer and game director.
Gaute Godager also added: “I had a fantastic time these last 16 years, and I am very proud of the many things Funcom has achieved. Funcom and Conan will always be a big part of me, but as I now look to new ventures outside the gaming industry I am certain Age of Conan’s future is in the best of hands.”

In my opinion there is something bad in Funcom. Gaute Godager was one of it’s original founders. Maybe AoC is has lots of bugs but Funcom and Godager created really good mmorp game with very cool ideas. To create mmo you need time and of course money, Blizzard or EA who released Warhammer Online are really rich companies. I hope Mr. Morrison will be someone better and he really help AoC..i really hope so..

Our Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures premiere was delayed few times, Funcom delayed AoC on January 21,
2008 and again on March 24, 2008 because of bugs.

game is still unfinished with large number of bugs and errors (Funcom still working very hard to fix them).

Age of Conan premiere delayed

in new 2008, one from the first news is something bad – Funcom is releasing game not in March but in May and they must do it because of bugs in game.

More complicated system of combat and other stuff is real problem for Funcom so it isn’t quite sure, that they release game in May. Anyway check out this new video about Age of Conan :-)

Age of Cona is looking very well, we have very dynamic combat system called “Real Combat” with very cool combos. Now you can attack your enemies with different types of sword attacks (just like in arcade beat them up ;p).

Dark Templar class in interwiev with Jørgen Tharaldsen

darktemplaraoc.jpg

Hi, on TentonHammer.com you can find new interview with one from Funcom crew, about Dark Templar class. This long and interesting article is starting new series of interviews with Age of Conan producers about game and classes. Interesting stuff here anyway. Dark Templar http://www.rpgonlinegame.net class is basically warrior tank with special dark magic powers. He can fight as a tank, in front line and fight very efficient without any help party, its depending how hard fight is but generally he can fight alone and drain life using his abilities or very dangerous spells. His value is high because healers can focus on other tank in party.

His specialty is combat with single handed weapons like swords or blunt weapons but he can also take shield or magical talisman or orb or anything else and fight very efficient. Dark Templar have special and his unique combos ( every class have his own anyway), but his will be interesting as a mix of dark powers and deadly attacks. About PVP i can say that his frenzy ability and all spells and powers make him very valuable character to play against different player.

Crom – Warrior God

crom-ageofconan.jpg

In Age of Conan and generally in Hyborian there are lots of gods, some are very dark – like bloody – Set, some are bright – Mitra and some are neutral like humans – Crom.

I will start from mighty – Crom. This ancient god is main ( and propably only ) deity of Cymeria – homeland of Conan. Also Conan belive in this god and from various of event we can say that he is probably most favorite follower. Crom love strength, might and braveness – his followers shouldn’t waste time for prayer – this god hate this kind of manifestation of faith – it’s a weakness to beg him for anything. Concluding – this god warrior can be attract only by mentioned above attributes ( strength, bravery and iron will ).
