  1. Ya i was on tyranny with ebongay(ebonlore) they were retarded though so i left. One thing about the armor part… Your armor would not change how good it was with level… my lvl like 50 had lvl 25 armor on it that was boss because the extra stuff on it was amazing and that was all that used to be needed.

  2. Steve said:

    Are you guys on tyranny? i have a 43 Tempest on it.

    I don’t think the guys are really going to fire up their old AoC accounts. Afterall, we played TAPS on that ass.

    All i know is whether you do or not im not cause i hated that game WAY to repetitive and not enough content

    yeah… piece of shit game.

  4. @necrotic we don’t play aoc currently, and I honestly don’t foresee any of the guys going back to that game. of course, vp or b can get on here and confirm that for themselves.

    Oh dear god, not that keyword advertising system.
    Also i found a game thats in alpha(invite only) that is alot like planetside, might want to look at it. http://www.globalagendagame.com

    @Steve, are you referring to the ORANGE LINKS? Personally, I hate that shit… they are like landmines on a webpage. Just thought I’d try it out for myself. Will probably remove… just curious what the payscale is for this type of site. Just bear with me for a bit… I completely feel your pain 😀

  6. @necrotic: actually we just reactivated our aoc account yesterday..me (Gommer), Vince, and Paul. Didn’t get a chance to play much last night but we’ll probably play again tonight…oh we’re on Tyranny.

  7. Upgradable Turrets (TF2) the sapper thingy that you lay on the things that the engi build (TF2)… Teambased combat…. all of the ones i mentioned thats a basic for a FPS though cloaking shield is seen in alot of games. Mainly TF2 and crysis are the are the only ones i can think of that use 1 player cloaking Devices… (not including bf 2142 cause thats only a camo).

    @Gommer my big issue with AoC was the lack of things to do when i got to lvl 80 and replaying the game was BS cause you had the same exact stuff to do again Wild lands and then dont remember the names but it was the same shit no matter what race you were.

  8. TF2 how am i supposed to take this cast serious now! sforce knows real men play cod4 😉

  9. Yeah John we did reactrivate our accounts everyone, but we won’t be playing to PVP until Gem Stacking is done. John will help powerlevel us until that happens. But yeah I am not gonna go out and PVP until they fix the Gemstacking, which is supposedly to happen soon. I will have my level 80 by then so I will be gold.

  10. I’m never going back to Age of Conan. The game was bad enough at the beginning, and seeing how it took them this long to fix the gem stacking problem, I would not be surprised if it took them another long time to fix another bug that might get introduced in the patch.

  11. They actually fixed the gem problems you guys talked about way back in November I think, plus have done lots of balancing so one shotting is not like it used to be. Other new things since you left: A lot more gear available, PVP armor sets you can buy in Old Tarantia behind the auction house, Ymirs Pass, a huge zone with the Amphitheater dungeon that has about 8 unique armor sets, and very fun, A new lvl 80 dungeon Xibiluku in Thunder River, and lots more crafting recipies for those who are into that kind of thing – Server merges also took place so they are a lot more populated, I think that is most of the big changes, but a lot of class tweaking has been done and gems were severly nerfed a looong time ago

  12. …Also… I am on the Wiccana server in the Bloodlines guild, which is a decent size, and took part in a seige a few days ago, Must have had 50-75 on each side, no lag, it was awesome even though we lost, we are going to try to get our keep back on Friday, anyway, the point being they have improved seiges and end-game raiding tons in the last few months as well. If you have a good rig DX10 is coming online tomorrow. God rays of sunlight, trees swaying in the wind, grass that moves around you as you walk through it, have tried it on the test server and it looks really good… anyway I think you will have fun coming back

  13. Nice Bjor, We will definitely see how it is and talk about it in the cast. If they took out Gem Stacking, then this might be fun.

  14. @Vince, I doubt it. It’s really hard to want to play AoC after experiencing DFO. DFO has a ways to go overall, but it has limitless potential, whereas AOC is pretty boxed in.

  15. Ya remember vince they have been *fixing* gem stacking since it came about in like early September so who knows you might be waiting till next September…

    @steve so is that global angeda game an mmo or what cause from what it looks like you run around in a lobby then join a team battle… its this correct?

    IF so it seems like arena’s in dare i say it GUILD WARS!!!! lol and if thats true i would play the game if there is no monthly fee.

  16. ok from what i just found out the game will be having a monthly fee and it will be a bunch of 10v10 missions which is bullshit… ill just play COD4 and have 24v24’s for free

  17. don’t get me wrong, I think all of us here will definately play DFO once NA release comes along. AoC is just an option to play in the meantime… One thing I noticed about demo is that that buffed the fire tree up so much. I was playing havoc but gonna respec to conflag(fire) and play around with that aoe knockback :)

  18. wow… thats wonderful since 1 DEMO can take out a whole group of 80’s by their selves they decide to make them better…. wonderful makes me wanna play even more

  19. @steve plz post some of the features of Global agenda that your excited for cause what i’ve read of it is that basically its a normal fps that has a lobby that you can run around in instead of scrolling through server lists and then you just jump into a wold (server) and fight for a spot…. Just like any other FPS there is the only catch is that you have to pay 15$ a month for it and its only 10v10…

  20. Ok guys i was thinking this was gonna be reallly dumb but my jaw was dropped the whole entire time i was watching….. this is the future of gaming no if ands or buts about it this is it the future GUARANTEED!!! this is amazing and unbelievable… imagine a little shitty Dell insipron 15 poop filled computer running a game like crysis full res very high everything with well over 30fps… well its a reality!!!

    @Connorus, dude. get skype and join our cast next Thurs (first cast in April). WE already did this weeks. And, btw, anybody is welcome to call in to try to join a cast on any Thursday. Call our skype: mmosmacktalk between 7pm and 9pm pst. The earlier the better, that way we can tell you what’s going on. Thanks for this info, Connor!

  22. I have skype and i will try to be available to join the cast… think about the possibilities this onlive thing opens up for MMOS… the possibility of a game that looks as good as MO or the witcher, or Fall out 3 being able to have battles and the freedom that DFO and all the other greats have with the volume of people

  23. Yeah it will be sweet. Skype in next week, whoever wants. Just message here if you can make it for sure, well not here but the new cast this Sunday, just leave a comment if you wanna jump on skype and get ur 2 pesos’ in , haha.
