|Age of Conan is a great MMO that offers some new and interesting mechanics in a saturated market. But, like any post-launch MMO, it does have its fair share of problems. Funcom has been working hard to rectify the issues, and patches have been frequent thus far. One fix has the community up in arms already, though. Class balance, you wonder? No. Boob size.
Community members are claiming that Funcom has silently given well-endowed characters a reduction. Complaint threads began to spring up on the official Age of Conan forums over the weekend, proving the change with screenshot comparisons. Funcom has not yet responded to complaints.
In the interest of science, a screenshot comparison from my character on launch day and one taken earlier today is included above. You can click the above image for the original, but be warned that it is technically NSFW. As you can see, there's not a huge difference between the two, though one could argue that my character was a little more modest than some of my cohorts. One would hope that Funcom would be more focused on fixing some of the more important problems, like broken quests and class balancing.
Update: Funcom has responded to the complaints, saying that the company "can confirm that some of the female models in the game have had the size of their breasts changed. This is due to an unintended change." The team is "working on a fix for this and your breasts should be back to normal soon."
