“Play AoC! Because… because… you don’t even need to be online to level up! It’ll just happen!”
I simply cannot understand the groupthink session that went into creating this bizarre feature, unless they were trying to trump the rest system seen in other MMOs.
What’s the point here? What’s the message they’re trying to convey?
“Our game is so lame that we want you to play less of it?”
“The REAL game starts at the level cap, so we’re gonna get you there ASAP?”
“You’ve shelled out your $15 this month, so here — have fun with an officially sanctioned cheat?”
“Age of Conan: we reward lazy players who can’t be bothered to log in?”
I’m sorry, I sort of see where they were going with this, but it just smacks of counter-productivity. What’s next, handing out epic gear every seven days, just ’cause?
Oh well. Who needs to actually play games anyway?
