First, i dislike to get informations from other sources.

http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/1...p#.UQJ05WeheLw

It leaves a taste of Funcom isnt really honest with us.

Second, "This will not be able to happen over the next couple of months given the restructuring process, so what happens with the new engine and the timeframe will depend on the priorities of that team."
So it will be with my payed account.

Third, this is not very good news, infact, its corporate bull****.
Have you finally kicked the people, favoring a Bejing studio ?!

It really feels like Funcom has the wrong leaders and our gamestaffers have to swallow a lot ...

And fourth, to round it all up, the NPE is thrown under the old engine.
So the NEW player experience will be a directx7 one.
There has never been more /facepalm then that decision.
Why oh why ...

Do we have any info how many character slots will be available after server merge? It stops me from playing - i wont roll a new character just to delete it after merge.

Hmm, that's the place where the new heads for AO chars were made right? Anyone happen to know/remember how finished those are/were?

Doh, didn't think of that. That's indeed very bad... so bad I'd personally just make the NPE ready but would hold on releasing it untill engine is ready (assuming it's in the state we're being told). Also, what about the Steam deal? Does that wait for NPE and/or engine?

- - -

Worth noting. There's some things (global research reset plan, cough cough ) we can blame the AO devs for. This mess with restructuring and its delays we can't - it's the people higher up making the moves (as needed as they may be). The AO team was already hammered few months ago and looks like this one will be a new strike. Just saying that as much as this sucks, don't blame the wrong people. They have enough to deal with already, likely downsizing and all

I remember Kintaii banned me when I mentioned in his goodbye thread that the influx of firings would cause a delay in the engine.

Hmmmmm.....

The New Player Experience needs to get to Testlive asap, new engine or not, so we can debug/debase/deplore it. I wouldn't expect it on Live until the new engine is also ready, though, to go hand-in-hand.


Pooling Devs is one thing, but will current producers and Game Directors still be heading their respective games?

Thanks for the update Ilaliya, seems not to bad that far.

You are right on the NPE, seems awkward. On the other hand, it just might better fit in the remaining time till the AO devs move.

From my point of view I would sum it up like this:

1. FC is not closing servers of AO
2. Server merge is going to happen soon ...
3. New engine is not going to happen soon ...
4. wtf needs new player experience as there are no new players !

Is this the time to start a Syndicate to buy AO and the Dev team from FC?
