When Age of Conan's pre-order players begin on the 17th, it was originally intended to be level-capped for the 3 days at level 20, which is not a whole lot different than LotRO's level 15 cap for two weeks of a head start. But when Funcom announced this "feature" of the Early Start program, it was met with rounds upon rounds of heavy fire from power gamers and genuine whining people alike who thought they were somehow disserviced by this limit. Maybe they were?
In any case, these players can now rest easy in the fact that they won't have to step foot outside during those 3 days at all. Get the Doritos and Mountain Dew ready, guys.
Perhaps in the face of negativity, Funcom's willing to bend a little here. I'm sure I'll still be around level 10 by Tuesday though... damn busy weekends. Someone please tell my wife that we don't have to be doing something EVERY day. :)
