London, June 18 (ANI): Fans of a popular multiplayer role play game are furious after their custom-built characters suddenly appeared to have “saggy” breasts.
Internet forums faced the fury of several fans of the Age of Conan role-player game, who posted complaints after noticing that their custom-built characters had dropped several bra sizes.
A large number of fans were angry as they spent hours in turning their gaming avatars into icons of exaggerated femininity and now these pert characters suddenly appeared to have lost much weight from the bosom.
Many of the players have even threatened that they will withdraw their subscriptions to the online game, insisting that the creator of the game, Norwegian firm Funcom, were trying to censor their buxom characters.
“If this isn’t fixed in a reasonable amount of time, ie a day or two, I will be un-subscribing,” The Telegraph quoted one player, calling himself Dusk, as writing the game’s official forum.
The reduction in breast size of characters in the multi-player fantasy game, has not only infuriated teenage boys, but also many girls, who were upset at the unannounced change.
“Funcom did reduce the size of the breasts. There is almost no cleavage, just a flat area between them. And YES they do sag,” wrote a player called Krystal.
Funcom has no responded to the players complaints in a message posted on a gamers’ forum, saying that maximum breast size was reduced due to an error during a programming alteration carried out to fix other bugs. At the same time it promised that all affected characters would soon be re-enlarged
“Funcom 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 in data that was introduced in an earlier patch, data which controls the so-called morph values associated with character models and the size of their respective body parts. We are working on a fix for this and your breasts should be back to normal soon,” said the statement.
In fact, a spokesman of the firm said that a patch correcting the problem has already been sent out to players and they are hoping that things would come back to normal now.
Many have touted Age of Conan as a “next generation” multiplayer role play game much before its release on PC last month. (ANI)
