Hmm, if we recall the last time Funcom launched a game, that means Age of Conan might be playable about a month after the launch.

Man, Anarchy Online had the worst launch. I hope Funcom learned its lesson.

For all the performance problems people seem to be having in the beta, the server stability has been pretty good. If the launch goes poorly, I don't think it'll be lag/server related - it'll only go poorly if a majority of players have severe game-killing client issues.

I feel bad for Funcom. Age of Conan could be one of the best launches in history and people would still point to any flaw that crops up and scream, "See, it's just like Anarchy Online!"

Maybe in another seven years they'll let it go.

After playing in the open beta I am stoked. The combat is fantastic, the interface is nice for being stock, and the classes make me want to level a bunch of them. The bad? Steep, steep hardware requirements compared to other MMO's. It kicked the crap out of my GeForce 7600GT to the point where I just ponied up for a 8800GT and a new hard drive.

WoW killer? No way. Too many people will look at the recommended system setup and come to the conclusion that no MMO is worth the $150-$600 they would need to spend to upgrade. Age of Conan should take a large chunk out of the Eve and Lineage 2 communities though.

Synopsis: the game isn't done, it will force many to upgrade, but I can't wait! =- )
