Age of Conan's Ellingsen on Breast Redux, June Changes

FunCom’s Developer spokesperson Erling Ellingsen recently spoke with Eurogamer about the scandalous breast reduction of female characters in Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures. Ellingsen seems amused and dumbfounded in equal parts over the attention the SNAFU is receiving.

“The amount of attention this accidental breast reduction has received is very surprising to us. I’ve had mainstream media calling me about this, and the forum has been glowing with some very interesting conspiracy theories,” said Ellingsen.

“I can tell you, however, that this is nothing but a body morphing bug that is being fixed now. So your breasts should be back to normal as soon as possible. Never thought I would say those words, really. Interesting business, this.”

Ellingsen also filled gamers in on changes coming up for Age of Conan in June. Players who revel in “ganking” other players better get it out of their system because FunCom is determined to put a stop to it… or at least make it so painful its not worth the penalties. We’re also promised a better UI, and the ability to control your character while you’re dancing among other changes coming soon.

“In June we’re giving several dungeons in Stygia a complete overhaul. We’re going over some quests to make them even more entertaining and adding a bunch of post-level 50 quests. We’re adding voice-overs to a ton of quests pasts level 20 – about one each level – and we’re putting in lots of quests that didn’t make it for launch,” revealed Ellingsen.

“Also for June – we’re not completely binding ourself to a date yet – is an overhaul of the PvP system. We’re making it so ganking has consequences! Very cool. Plus we’re adding PvP gear and things like that.”

Personally, I have to wonder if there is any penalty stiff enough to stop players from “ganking.” Some people just get off on being mean.

Hmm, game’s slowly getting better it seems. Maybe once the classes are somewhat balanced I’ll get it…

I’d get it if I seriously had a job. I just want to escape in a new MMO, WoW got old really fast for me. So far this one looks to please the player, aside from this Ganking problem and as some people say some sort of class imbalance. But I find balancing things make games dull, and even though any WoW Mage will tell you WoW isn’t balanced….it is. Anyways hope to see a trial out soon so I can have a sample of new awesome.

The new anti Ganking System needs to be put in place ASAP. Unbelievable the amount of very high level players camp out on spawn points and just kill the low level players as soon as they spawn. Throughout the game its a waste of time and frustrating for the players who have limited time (jobs, life, etc.) trying to level or complete a quest when groups of high levels keep killing you for no reason. Its not PVP its a Joke.
