Fury - let´s be real here

Hey Conaners!

Some might remember me, some might think I´m another PvP weeb - nonetheless, the topic of this post is simple - Fury is as dead as they come and because of this I am unable to play the game as most of my characters that I´ve spent years on(not to mention the real life money) are locked on Fury. I can´t run any minigames, sieges or open-world PvP because there are simply no players. Unless It´s questing, PVE is out of the question. This means I am unable to play the game by the standards it is meant to be played, which is why I have occasionally returned for a few days here and there just to quit again. Starting over on a new toon is not an option as I´ve put a lot of dedication and hard work into my characters.

What I´m asking for? Simply for the chance to transfer characters from Fury to Crom for free for those who so wish. As it is not a “preference” or a choice, as much as it is mandatory for you to be able to play the game how it´s meant to be played - with other people. I do not believe I should be paying money for the service in
the current situation.

Sincerely,
Kartmatu

Saga has sucked 95% of Fury’s pop (and probably about as much for Crom). Things will be very different after the 15th of May when Saga ends.

If you want to play AoC right now you need to make a character on Saga. Even Crom is mostly unplayable right now.


#3

Also, current saga server is pve like crom. There will be a pvp saga server sometime after the pve one closes. There is a suggestion thread about it somewhere where devs are listening about pvp.


#4

We know it Mr.Capitan.

This person wants to play on his multiple characters, for which he paid subscription and other store services for many years. And not on the new one character on the Saga.

The question is, if you do not want to start a new character on Saga, you can not play this game. This is the best gift for veterans who have supported the game for 10 years and now can not play on their characters.

I hope that I will never see the new Saga, this Saga is the worst thing I’ve seen in this game since 2008.

I would like to return the cost of the subscription for 5 months of the Saga, since there were actually no access to the game by other characters for whom this subscription was bought.


#5

If you think Fury is alive before/after Saga then we have a different understanding of alive. 30 people vs what? 300? I want to be able to transfer all my character to Crom free of cost. Fury is a dead server, period.


#6

Right because 300 is a great number for a live server on any mmo. Besides that you don’t have access to those figures so you’re just pulling numbers off the top of your head. Fury is a PVP dedicated server now. And before Saga came along it was very active.

And I suspect after Saga is over it will become active again. Furian players aren’t suddenly going to want to be on the PVE server after this event ends. Fury is a server where people go when they get tired of PVE and all they want to do is PVP 24/7.

You will find no group content on Fury nor will you find raid content you will find only open world PVP, duels ,and mini games. if you want more than PVP than you should transfer to crum and funcom should allow free transfers. However If PVP is all you desire then Fury is all you need.

If you wish to do PVE content then you need to be on crum. that’s all there is to it. I vote funcom gives free transfers to all for free at any time.

I also vote that people stop slamming fury because if you kill Fury with all your negative rhetoric you’re just going to be stuck with us on your server. Just think of that we’ll all be one big happy family.


#7

This courageous, but not veracious statement. For example 90% of players of my guild would like that servers have merged. If you check an old official forum, then you will see that many players asked devs about merge of Fury and Crom for many years.

It is also not true. The last few months on Fury we went to T4, T3,5 raids every week. Coz T3,5 and T4 weapon is perfect for PvP especially if you haven’t PvP lvl 10.

Do you know which day has highest online on the Fury? It is not a 1st day of PvP Festival. It is every Monday, when ppl doing RF and it is a 1st day of WB fights.

Do you know why? Because people want to have access to 100% of the content at the same time, not to only PvP or PvE parts of it.

Crom have both parts - you can have PvE and PvP at the same time. Crom have like 5 times more PvP minigames. Often minigames running in the morning and nonstop in the afternoon, in the evening and at night. It has same PvP Festival fights like on Fury or may be better.

The only thing that you can’t doing on Crom - it is PvP in the open world. That’s the question that is worth concentrating on.

Give PvP players one or two locations on Crom where they can fight in the open world and the issue will be resolved.

Anyway you not need full Open world PvP. How much players you killed in last 2-3 years on Fury in Thunder River, EM, Imir Pass, Aztel Approach, Paikang for example?
I think that in most cases I will have enough fingers on my hands to count these kills.

Sometimes it seems to me that we play on different servers.

The last 3 years on Fury any PvP minigame could be played only in the evening in the prime time.

If I came into a game in the morning or in the afternoon on my weekands, then I couldn’t do anything, the maximum could have several duels with the same players day by day.

Is it “very active” in your opinion?


#8

Once again - I am not asking for Funcom to take that away from you. I do ask for free transfers off Fury for those who want to do more than pvp duels (and you can have that on Crom too). For me, Fury is not playable since I can only play 10% of what the game has to offer.

Would love to have a moderator chime in here and get the word to higher ups?


#9

Probability that a moderator will just do this is very low in my experience…there has been a post in the community corner which has requested an “official response” from Funcom and not been replied to. A post I added to asking something to be clarified is still unanswered… Try a direct message to one of them …their user names are listed on the forums as people to send exploit reports to … andyb is community manager, sunstar is a moderator, christa is a customer support person, mussagana is a developer.
At least by sending a direct message…and I believe you can link this post in the message you will know that person will read it …


#10

This courageous, but not veracious statement.

Courageous? Do you not think for a minute that if people who play on Fury full time wanted to play on Crom that they would have transferred off already? everyone has the choice to transfer off albeit the paywall discourages it but nevertheless. Plenty of players will remain on Fury, myself included.

It is also not true. The last few months on Fury we went to T4, T3,5 raids every week. Coz T3,5 and T4 weapon is perfect for PvP especially if you haven’t PvP lvl 10.

Good for you i guess. Raids and pve content on Fury is rare I think we can both agree on that. There are some guilds who partake in this but they are few and far between.

Do you know which day has highest online on the Fury? It is not a 1st day of PvP Festival. It is every Monday, when ppl doing RF and it is a 1st day of WB fights.

Usually it varies. the PvP festival does bring out players as well as the world boss event. RF may be a thing that shows high activity during Eu prime time but not so for Na prime time. There are plenty of people who don’t care for PvE content on Fury. Myself included.

Crom have both parts - you can have PvE and PvP at the same time. Crom have like 5 times more PvP minigames. Often minigames running in the morning and nonstop in the afternoon, in the evening and at night. It has same PvP Festival fights like on Fury or may be better.

Except there is no world pvp. Do you know that i leveled a toon on zath server and was unable to get a shred of pvp the entire time until I reached level 80? Because of its lack of world pvp and ZERO low level minis. (I started late on zath)world pvp is important to players like me. You may not care for it but i and many like myself do.

The only thing that you can’t doing on Crom - it is PvP in the open world. That’s the question that is worth concentrating on.

EXACTLY And this is the problem in a nutshell. I don’t think you understand how high this issue is with pvp enthusiasts like myself. the sole reason for not playing on Crom. World PvP is EVERYTHING!

Give PvP players one or two locations on Crom where they can fight in the open world and the issue will be resolved.

Or, do it like fury where a daily zone is selected and pvp is opened for all. I would be content with this if a merge occurs in the future.

Anyway you not need full Open world PvP. How much players you killed in last 2-3 years on Fury in Thunder River, EM, Imir Pass, Aztel Approach, Paikang for example?
I think that in most cases I will have enough fingers on my hands to count these kills.

again as I leveled in zath I couldn’t pvp as II ran around questing. It took away from my enjoyment quite a bit not being able to attack random players. I could only watch them pass me by freely. where is the challenge in that? Sure griefing is a problem but random world pvp while leveling made it a nice diversion from the quest grind.

Sometimes it seems to me that we play on different servers.

I play mostly during NA prime time so if you play during EU prime time then it is safe to say we DO play on 2 different servers. NA and EU prime time are two sides of the same coin so to speak. Completely different worlds.

The last 3 years on Fury any PvP minigame could be played only in the evening in the prime time.

Sometimes it becomes unplayable at all which gives us a nice excuse to log off and do something else. not a big deal really when you consider how old this game is.

Is it “very active” in your opinion?

I wouldn’t say “Very”" but it is active enough to keep pvp enjoyable for the enthusiasts.

you desire all the content in aoc then feel free to play on Crom. but don’t try to force it down everyone elses throat ok bud? I hope I answered your questions in a thought provoking manner.


#11

I support the OP.

AoC is an old game with a low population and with Funcom at least doing a little bit to try to bring in new players via Saga, it IS in their best interest to do what they can for old timers in order to retain them.

A company should not be looking at a very old game in the same way as they do a newish game, strategies need to change to keep making money.


#12

Man, they can start same event with same rewards on Crom, without creating new temporaly server “Saga” which deastroy game on both Fury and Crom. It would allow to attract the same number of beginners without loss of veterans.

Yez, I need to forget that I have spent 10 years in this game and about all my 12 characters and begin to think how to send more money to FC. Mussagana, log off please.


#13

Of course Courageous. Coz u told:

Speaking about all Furian players. It is not true as I told you before. Last time that FC opened a free transfer - 80% of the population left Fury. This time there will be approximately the same in my opinion. My opinion based on words of my guildmates and words of players from global chat, coz we spak about it a lot of times. Not on loud, but empty statements, unlike yours.

It is super easy to check, just ask global chat about it in day with good amount of players online.

Before the opening of Saga on Fury there were only 5-6 guilds with normal online.

I speak about two biggest of them - USB and NW. Aslo biggest German guild (forgot their name) is also always was intrested in PvE, always doing 6 mans dungeons and trying to create their own raids.
It’s not “few and far between” - it’s half of the server’s population.

Are u find some pvp on leveling on Fury last years?
When 3-5 players is lower than the 80th level online?
There is no PVP during a leveling on both servers.
There can be incredibly exceptional cases when stars start to falling.
Why you speak about it?

On weekends I play at absolutely various time. Few years ago we have some sieges against NA players so I think my online is crossed with their. I live between Europe and the USA.

Yez, but Crom have these morning and afternoon minigames unlike Fury.


#14

Nope. I came back with a group of guildies from another game because it was a fresh start server and knew that everyone else on the server would be starting from scratch. Most people shun the idea of starting new in an old game because most of the players are already at end game.


#15

Maybe you also knew that this is a temporary server and in the end everything will be on Crom along with yours “most of the players are already at end game”? What is the difference?

Now you can easily say that you would not have come if the event was on the Crom and not on the Saga. But this fact can not be verified as it was not and will not be.

With the same ease, I can say that you would have come to Crom.

Reading this forum, I’ve heard many times about the mythical groups of players who started playing or returned to the game.

But every day trying to find a few players for our T5 raid (for example), we are looking for players for about an hour.

In my estimation, the online on Saga is already smaller than it was on the Crom before Saga launch.

But the mythical groups that no one has seen, of course, still playing on Saga.


#16

Because EVERYONE has to start over on Saga making EVERYONE lvl 1…while on Crom, everyone will be on their decked out lvl 80s.

This means that new and returning players will have more people to play with while leveling!

As for that second sentence, apply that to your own statements as I do not require you to believe the reasons why I came back to the game. Funcom themselves will know the truth by how many new accounts are created and if their revenue increases from this event.


#17

I also came back just because I expected to easily find people for group content below level 80 and Saga delived in that regard. The first disappointment followed when I got the T1 armor, which is probably completely incomprehensible for the typical gear oriented player - but I hated that it killed Atzel’s, Iron Tower, Xiba and the T1 Raid because nobody would do them more then once for the quests. Then RF made it worse. I still like the idea of Saga. It just needs a few adjustments…


#18

Even the “fresh start” Saga toons will be rubbing elbows with veteran toons with max out gear, aa’s etc in mid May.


#19

I still do those from time to time, because they’re fun. If you’re looking for a guard or a necro, I’m up to the challenge :stuck_out_tongue:

With the several Zath quest rewards and the boosts to AA XP, his char will be able to hold his own in T5/T6 on Cromwhen the server shuts down (as long as he knows how to play properly of course.)


#20

If the similar event has begun on Сrom, all would be forced to begin the new character of 1 level. Don’t you really understand or you pretend?

When developers do some events in others online games they don’t open for this purpose new servers which devastate all previous servers. It was the first game where I have seen the similar decision.
