    I think my worst fear for AoC would be PvPer not learning from past bad habits and repeating them in this game. The main one I am thinking of is the behavior of players that brought Tramel to Ultima Online. PvPer (actually Gankers) would kill anyone that left town to the point that people were leaving the game in droves. The devs responded to their loss of revenue by creating that server. Just think, if the PvPer of that time were more civil, what the world of MMOs might look like today.

    AoC appears to be heading down a path where the game will have a similar structure. I don't want to see the Gankers and other bad apples take over the server and run off the players. I hope PvPer have learned from that time and are more civil, and not just a bloodthirsty mob.

    PvP attitute is not at fault.
    Not implementing a system to dissuade sensless murders is a fault.

    In AoC is someone kills you for no reason that become a free to kill target for other players. Upon their death either from a mob, npc or other players they will lose their gear

    I am very concerned about as a publisher. Nothing good there imo.

    Combat is a really big part of MMORPGs and it needs to be done right. Shit combat can ruin otherwise good game. Atm the combat feels quite average kind of thing, and maybe it should move a bit out from that BR mode too, but I can see some light at the end of the tunnel.

    The world design plans are very ambitious and interesting at the same time. However, I can see that also as a huge risk, and I hope they have not took too big slice from the cake. This part can push the release a way too far or eat all the money during developing the game.
    Do you need a ride to the Underworld?

    Still can't get over and I will never let that petty hatred go

    The dead do not squabble as this land’s rulers do. The dead have no desires, petty jealousies or ambitions. A world of the dead is a world at peace
