The game had Potential,just as did ESO. both failed right out the gate in their first year. The glue that has held AOC together was the players. That glue is losing it's integrity. The PVP code was easy for Hackers to breach and inject their own sub routines in. In fact each PVP mini-game seems to have at least one hacker in it. Funcom allows this. They also allow gold spammers. When issues of exploits are brought up in the Funcom forum's they act like the NAZI Descendents they always wanted to be. They stifle free speech and communication. They have added no new content to the game since RoTG. In short they took all of the Sub money from AOC and used it for TSW. In addition the former CEO the week before TSW launched sold all of his stock when he knew that Funcom was tanking. This triggered a raid at Funcom HQ. They have consistently lied to their subscribers.
The game has many bug's that are serious enough to hinder game play. Grinds are excessively long and ranking /renown system is broke this limits what dungeons you can enter and raids you can join.
It is a cash shop money mill your FTP account will have no storage space, you cannot complete the main destiny quest, you will be spammed to "Go PREMIUM" each and every time you log in. You will not have access to most of the content of the game as you have to buy each "Country seperate" and if you cancel your sub you lose access to what you paid for. In short when you see FUncom. Remember what that FU stands for.
The Game is dying and hopefully FUncom will die as well. I hope the entire funcom staff chokes to death on Legos.
