 Wonder why AA3 sucks?

PostSubject: Wonder why AA3 sucks?   June 26th 2009, 11:32 pm

A former [Dev] speaks out:

I worked as a Dev at AA Emeryville for the last year and a half and I hope I can appeal to your rationality and common sense. I would like you to imagine trying to build a game with an impossible deadline, steadily declining workforce (via firings), A hiring freeze, constantly being fed misinformation, having the “higher ups” completely ignore your weekly plea for either A) more time, or B) more manpower, working a ton of unpaid overtime, pouring your heart and soul into a misadventure only to have the uniformed community scoff at you for uncontrollable variables….. RIGHT when you’ve just lost your job.

There are problems with the release beyond the devs control. In fact, the bureaucracy is so convoluted that you can’t even begin to imagine the breadth and scope of B.S. the devs had to deal with daily. in short, imagine being the subcontractor of a subcontractor of a contractor to the government. Sure Millions of dollars may have been poured into this project, but how much do you think made it to the actual DEV team, the people MAKING the game, after it was filtered by the bureaucracy?

I realize if you are a gamer, you rightly expect a game to work. period. But I would ask that you imagine for a second that you actually DON’T understand what it takes to make this particular game, and you really don’t understand the many obstacles that were placed in front of the Devs… in nerdy terms: A Kobiyashi maru.

What I would like you to understand is that the Devs did everything they could, worked a TON of unpaid overtime, put their time and passion into an un-winnable situation, and were effectively stabbed in the back. Many of these guys are my close friends, they have family to take care of, and overpriced rent to deal with. They just came off busting their butts for months, to be let go, without warning. Perhaps a little empathy is in order here.

Almost every multiplayer online game has problems upon release. These problems become exaggerated when a development team is kept in constant turmoil and paranoia via misinformation and a high rate of employee turnover. When the people you trust around you are being let go, it becomes difficult to emotionally invest yourself in the titanic sinking ship. Nonetheless, I can tell you the Devs STILL pushed themselves as hard as they could.

Furthermore, the problem with the game at this point, has everything to do with the authentication servers being slammed, A.K.A not a controllable variable by the Devs. Sure there are bugs, they WERE being fixed, and now you’ll be lucky to see any fixes in the near future.

For those of you who think Redstone arsenal will do a better job, well…. I won’t have to tell you that you’re sadly mistaken because you’ll see for yourself.

I’m not sure why i’ve felt compelled to write this when I’m sure it will get deleted, or even scoffed at further, but I hoped to let the fans know that we tried as hard as we could and are very bummed to see the fruits of our labor shoved at gamers like a heaping pile of crap.

As i stated, the game itself isn't the problem, the problem stems from the fact that AA management totally failed to anticipate the amount of player interest.
You would think they would prepare for at least half of the current AA community trying the latest release. Hehehe, yeah right.
My 4 year old niece has better management skills than these clowns, and they reprove that point time and time again.
If they were a bloke their missus would be sending them for an implant.

Thanks Soul I was looking for that post again to put here, stumbled across it a few days ago and forgot where it was lol

yeah the release was a complete nightmare but it is an adictive game once you get used to it, also helps there are a few aussie and NZ servers popping up so the lag isnt so bad on them.

Yeah, imo AAO 3 blew, extremely laggy, huge memory hog, the processor recommendation is 100% higher than it should be, and no jumping... WTF!! what FPS can't you jump in? other than GRAW ( which also is terrible) Realistically, if you were getting shot at, you'd do whatever possible to get out of the way, including Jumping, ducking, diving, weaving, etc.. etc..

Overall AAO 3

Scores a
1 out of 5 Slow Grandmas

God, you're doing a great job looking in the forums as a recruit. That's what I did not too long ago. But in some topics you have to realize that they are out of date. Otherwise keep up the good work. (and get on the server cuz i've never seen you) (and ts)

OMG, I work in Emeryville too and had no idea that those guys are here (Emeryville is very small). Otherwise I would go to their office and say in person that their game SUCKS!!!
