I don´t whant to spread bad mood, but for CE I used a good bit of pacience over the whole EA period and after.
The fact is, two weeks ago I was able to play wile on a jorney for my work and away from home over some days.
Now it seems unlikely I will be able to in the future.
Not tomorrow is verry open to interpretation, could be next year. Or if we go down the line of city live and mounts, maybe or never.
I´m sorry Tascha, this is not ment to be a rant, and specially not on someone who seems to do her work. but I stuck up for FC during EA and already there people where telling me I was delusional and FC will never get it done.
I wrote a positive review, as this game is artisticly greatly crafted, and the conan feeling was cought verry well. I was intrigued by the plans for this game.
After launch I was sobered up however. I changed my review to negative as I felt like I got told a fary tale of what could be´s, Fool me once…
Now after half a year I saw it is still worked on and decided to give it a second chance.
I erased my review, and looked into the new stuff. All seemed ok, nothing to spectacular in my opinion
but work was done.
But for me I reached a line, and that is, I can´t play wile I´m not home (easy to understand no?),
So, might be time to move on and look for some other timesink.
But if FC does not start to look after there customers with a bit more efford, I tell you, winter is coming.
This was not the place I thought to do this but as a farwell for now and instead of giving this game with a great potential, an other bad review:
List of stuff that buggs me:
not playing without internet conection
The obvious grudge I have right now.
getting stuck in hitboxes
one of the most anoying things that happen regulary
dying tralls and pets for diverent reasons and places
takig out followers is like looking after a child from the city into a jungle
I had a visitor on a server bringing a t4 fighter along who died under my lift like a roach.
missing features (city live, sorcery …)
I was with CE since the first weeks of EA, I know what EA means, and expect changes and such, but we downright got sold an idear that never came to pass. Think of siege animals, no static thralls , sorcery with coruption as a price to pay (great idear as it´s acording to the laws of conan)
features not working
Purge as far away as it is from the original idear from roaming NPC`s it produces unpredictable results, best yet nude NPC´s wo look like they take a relaxed walk towards you´re gate from a spawnpoint 15 blocks away.
No merchants or neutral NPC´s worth mentioning
Merchants with elephant hides for gold coins and drinks so expensive I never bought a single item (how many folks have I wonder), no quests or other generated things like treasure maps and such to fill this gap.
If you talk about new content, I would consider this content as well.
DLC content still buggy
no crafting que, repair items sometimes breaks them
DLC building parts cluttering up the menue
if you do any more it will be unusable in future without a rework of the building parts (a builders workstation for example)
like in crafting, cooking, fighting, HP for NPC´s, Sure many mod´s out there wich adress this but this should be adressed in the base game not by mod´s.
all the small things
vanishing stuff, bodys, chest´s not resetting loot …
and stuff I would remember as soon as I was playing and saw it, wich has come up in many post´s over the time
I never used one, and never bothered to find any, but as people bring it up all the time I guess it deserves to be mentioned
Not game related
as far as I can see, you have one moderator sitting on them to make sure the rules are aplied, but no tecnical or official respons from the Dev-team, no sugestions and and on the whole no atention given to the platform. And corect me if I´m wrong but I think most of us bought you´re company out of depts on steam.
contradicting and vague talks
Is sorcery comming, no yes, one sayed next thing (same who sold me the city live, I think), one says not at all.
The constant answer is working on it when it comes to old problems, new content aside, but a banner on the store page saying : full release 2.0 all buggs fixed for free, would sell this game like mad (if it was true)
dev logs and stream
Wich is good to have, but instead of me asking to do a pumkin for a contest someone who actually plays the game through more then the midnight groove would intrest me much more. Might be it would help FC as well to recognise some of the troubles we have in the game.
Again, I din´t mean to just shovel dirt around, but I find it a fair exchange instead of a negative review with the same content.
Might look into it again, somewhere down the line, just maybe not tomorow.
Have fun all.
