They were done. No more MMOs. If you're satisfied with MMOs as they are, of c...

...and this time it's Peter Smith of the Dragonchasers blog. Citing a waning ability to have fun with the game, item statistics that really don't help with anything, and a lack of variance in armor and items, Smith is calling it quits with Age of Conan. His comments seem to mirror the comments of ma...
