He may not be the most popular man in Age of Conan right now, but after this, you have to accord him at least a sliver of respect. Funcom Project Manager Erling Ellingsen made a personal appearance yesterday to give some answers on a thread where the atmosphere was, frankly, extremely hostile.
The fact that after a warm-up that mentioned wanting to throw things at the screen whenever his face appeared, he began his opening comment 'My friends...' is also worthy of respect.
He went on to provide some honest answers to concerns, assuring AoC players that features that weren't in at launch will be added (with a special mention of Drunken Brawling) and pointing out that WoW didn't have anything like the amount of end level content at launch that it does now. Ymir's Pass, we learn, is 'just about done', though Ellingsen wouldn't commit to a date, for the obvious reason that he'd get 'crucified' if it wasn't met.
