Age of Conan - New survey circulating

Age of Conan subscribers, make sure to check your emails.

Seems a survey is coming along asking questions of the players again. I understand their need to do this, but it really is not needed.
The questions are easy to answer...

Content and PvP should be your main concerns. The Sieges which are still borked, need to be fixed. All the little niggles and concerns (floating swords, shields through heads....basically QA) needs to be looked at.

If anything, you only have vets right now until the next expansion. This means make new ENDGAME content...NOW!

The questions in the survey seem to ask the same thing as before...

If you were a game developer for Age of Conan how would you prioritize the need for development in the following areas with 1 being a top priority and 5 meaning this area does not need immediate attention?
  • Class balance PVE
  • Class balance PVP
  • Combat mechanics
  • GUI
  • Tradeskills
  • Sieges
  • Character Customization
  • More items
  • Social activities
  • (emotes, pets, etc)
  • Events
  • Customer Support
  • Bug fixes
  • Griefers/Exploiters
  • New group dungeons
  • New Quests
  • More Levels
  • More Professions/Classes
  • New Raid Dungeons
  • New Siege Dungeons
  • More areas (non dungeons)
  • Travel modes/time
  • Graphics
  • Technical
Forget class balance. You have done it, and you need to stop that mess and get with the program. The classes may get as polished as can be, but you will not have an audience if the players are STILL doing the same things they did 6 or even 12 months ago.
The combat is what we love about this game, and the reason we are here...why mess with that?
Graphics...uh, some of the best in the industry, so please don't even tough them...

Ok...anyways, enough rant today. I do not plan to go to another MMO, but if content dries up for me, I will not be in AoC. Good thing I am still having fun...but, I am almost to the year, you may want to think about some major stuff to do.

I filled out my survey this morning. I'm with you, PvP and content is what I would like to see more of.
