    Are we sure that's the same client as the one Open Beta will use?

    AOC beta had like 3 fucking clients.... morons at Funcom.

    I sort of assumed it would be, hopefully so since it's 10 gig worth.

    Oh man hilarious.. my buddy Pre-ordered the CE from EB like 2 months ago. They called him yesterday to pick up his shit.... he entered it today... it's all SE codes.

    And to see if you got fucked as well, does your account centre say CE Head Start or just Head Start?

    Hey folks,

    Please pay careful attention to these announcements as they provide you with a ton of useful information.

    I just wanted to remind every that Item Codes are not active in the Account Center.

    Currently players may only enter their Open Beta keys and Head Start keys. No other keys and offers are accepted at this time.

    Thank you!

    Then why did it accept them? They better not be invalid now :P

    Jacobs post over on VN:
    Folks,

    On Monday, you'll be able to download the client via a solution that is, quite frankly, better than what we are currently using. Given the concern/issues with the current Torrent setup, I can't imagine any reasonable person being disappointed with what we are going to do next week. However, in order to get that set up properly, we weren't able to offer it today. I'm sorry for the delay but I know that you'll like what we are doing on Monday better than what we would have been able to do today. And no, it won't cost anything as per my recent post on this subject.

    Mark

    This is why companies have Betas. To find what works, and what doesn't.

    Torrent = bad. So apparently they're doing something different on the 18th.

    It sounds like they wanted to offer the download today, but after the craziness with the multi-day torrent download, they figured they needed to do something else.

    Hey so, I keep forgetting to check when I get home since I'm house sitting, and most game related sites are blocked here at work.

    Whats the deal with the red alert 3 item. Is it something you get with preorder, preorder of the special edition, or just something you get when you buy the regular game.


    I need this item.

    Fuck Age of Conan, seriously. I got an email from funcom saying some shit about a 7 day free trial and the email came with a reg key. So I click the link and read;

    Get ready for Age of Conan, the most savage, sexy and brutal MMO ever created!

    This offer is for the Age of Conan USA Trial Version.

    Registering this product will immediately create and activate your Age of Conan account.

    Once the 7 day trial is completed you must purchase the full retail version of the game.

    Seriously, WTF?!! *EDIT* The sign up forces you to select a subscription plan.

    Slann are the Lizardmen ancients, though, and they're... goodish. In the, "Infinitely powerful, ancient, and uncaring about all the lesser races, seriously, we could blast all of you into oblivion if a few of us would just wake our asses up" way.

    One of my favorite bits of lore is that the High Elves have an outpost off Lustria, and actually patrol the ocean just off the coastline to try to keep the Empire/Chaos off the continent. Basically because the High Elves are the only ones aware of the fact that all of the Slann waking up would mean absolute doom for all of the races except the lizardmen.

    The Slann wouldn't wipe everyone out unless the plans of the Old Ones said so. Which would be weird, 'cause the Old Ones put a lot of effort into making and teaching all the other races.

    It's not like they dislike Chaos either; Chaos and all its spawn just aren't part of the plan.

    I guess there is always the possiblity the Old Ones said something like "The year 2600 IC: Reset".

    Actually, the core rulebook for the tabletop game has a great jumping point for getting to know the lore.

    See though, I think no matter how you cut it, a victory against a mummified frog is still a loss by virtue of the fact that you had to expend actual effort to kill a mummified frog.
