I really am thinking of canceling my subscription. Eventhough I am still a lower level (35) I find no reason to really progress. Yes the combat system is AWESOME but there isn't alot of substance there for me. Really, the only thing I see myself leveling for is to take part in guild battles. AOC is a great game but it lacks in areas that hurt its longevity. No matter how much I try to find a replacement for WoW, it's impossible for me. WoW got it right on so many levels.

I can't stand WoW, or any MMO that uses auto-attack, really.

AoC has its flaws, but I can see the potential. I'll stick it out as long as my guild does, and I think most of us are in for the long-haul.

Thats pretty much it. AoC is your typical unpolished MMO once you get pass the starter town. But an interesting factoid showed up in this article. If Conan is number 2 with 700,000 subs and WoW is number 1 with 7 million, then there is a freaking HUGE tangent between WoW and all the rest.

WOW has 11 million subscribers, I believe. I played AOC twice never played it again, I can see some nice points about the game but it's not something I would want to pay for each month.

I know a lot of people who have played WoW religiously that didnt even play AoC for two weeks. Pretty sad for a game with so much potential.

I'm one of them. I've played WoW for 2 years but not religiously. AoC hooks you with the eye candy but once that wares off, there isn't much substance there at all.
