An MMOG's health is indicated by its server numbers, which means Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures
is currently ailing. Funcom's new Game Director for AoC
, Craig Morrison, writes on the game's forums that server merging
, in both Europe and North America, will soon occur.
At one point Funcom announced that AoC
had 700,000 players
, but that was when the game first shipped and players had a free trial month with the purchase. It's not just the players leaving -- Funcom investors also seem to be looking for the nearest exit. The company's stock is currently trading at $5, which is $20 down from when we checked in late July
and $50 down from before AoC
shipped.**The downward trend was already occuring prior to the current global economic crisis.
