I’ve been playing Funcom games since the beta of Anarchy Online and its disastrous release. My new machine is 2-3 weeks old and yet this software continues to crash. Why? SWL is what? Eight years old? Previously I was playing on Win 7 and now on Win 10.
But screw those details… What’s the problem? It sure isn’t my hardware.
I played Anarchy Online during beta, like I did TSW. In AO, I have NO idea how your software went from being somewhat fairly stable during beta to only go from there to ALL players being trapped in beginner zones and also - wtf? - geometry?
I’m posting this as a customer - someone who is not just a patron, but has also spent more money over top of that. Look up my account and look at it. My point here is that I have forked over money to your company yet crap that is years - YEARS - old still exists. Not just little, annoying crap either like having to vote to retreat from a NY raid or else players crash if they try to exit any other way; annoying as hell but not a deal breaker. Ridiculous.
So, hear I am with my new machine that’s all jacked up with CPU, RAM, and graphics card - BRAND NEW - and I paid good money for it. Yet, YOUR game crashes as it ALWAYS has
among other issues like when it crashes and my character gets teleported to an empty NYR instance from a friggin’ dungeon (WTF???) And that’s not even unique to this particular machine! Again, WTF???
I’ve been playing your company’s games since AO was in beta. When was that? 2001 or close to it? Nearly TWENTY YEARS I’ve been paying for your games so it’s not like I’m just spouting off about just one application.
I loved Anarchy Online. I love this game. But, f’ing A I will not be giving you another dime with this crap going on.
WTF is the problem??? You never fixed it when the game was flush with cash when it was released and you sure as hell haven’t done anythng about this stuff since - COMMON BUGS. Also, as long as I have your attention, I deal with looking at “Await word from your handler” in my missions every single time I log in, however many years THAT has been going on… Very annoying since I expect NO updates to the storyline.
But, again, WTF is wrong with your software or game engine or whatever. Is it management?
Lack of talent? WTF? I work with computers but I don’t know everything however, even if I did, why should it be MY OR ANYONE ELSE’S job to figure out your bugs for you? I’m not going to QA your products for you (anymore) for free. On that note, I don’t want to hear from anyone here who is not a Funcom employee - players - about how I can get around whatever by jumping through some hoops. SWL - 8 years old. My machine - 2 weeks old. Again, it’s not my or anyone else’s job to figure this out, it’s YOUR job, Funcom, not ours.
To wrap this up, I’ve been a Funcom customer for what? Nearly 20 years now? That’s a long time and a lot of loyalty no matter how foolish it ended up being.
I loved AO. I love SWL. But this is the last product I purchase from Funcom.
