I'm really hoping Funcom pulls this off, but at this point I'm skeptical.
We're 27 days from launch, and the very first quest is bugged. Completing it dumped me back into the starting area, but now I'm naked, bald, and surrounded by other people in the same condition. And when I quit it gave me BSOD. Not a promising start.
Also, character creation option are really limited, at least for male avatars. At least give us some color choices. We don't all want to look like Neo.
Combat appears largely twitch based, at least in the tutorial. I'm hoping this is supposed to be a scary mission where you can't tell what's happening, because all the combat in the videos has looked nothing like this. We'll see when I relog.
Oh, and finally: AoC had amazing graphics at launch, what, four years ago? If you put the two games side by side, you would think this was the older game. Here's hoping later areas are better looking.
Funcom, don't be scared to roll launch back! Don't give in to the EA monster and launch this thing in it's current condition!
