In our latest Wayback Wednesday, we once again check in with Dark Age of Camelot and turn our eyes to Albion. Find out what went down during Wayback Wednesday and then leave us your thoughts in the comments.

For this episode I decided to play a Reaver. I enjoyed playing a melee character again, and the debuff auras that this class has provides an interesting twist to the standard hack and slash. I also trained my character to use a whip. This is the first time I have wielded a whip as any class in an MMO and I felt like Indiana Jones running around in Thidranki, DAoC's level 20-24 battleground. I was joined on this foray by Talal Saad, a producer for Mythic and the project lead on DAoC.

My favorite memory in DAoC is the feeling early on in the game when your relics were under attack, and the entire server dropped what they were doing and rushed to the relic keep in order to defend it from the enemy. That feeling has lessened somewhat since then.

Veterans don't want to pay $14.95/month (the same price as a for a newly released AAA MMO) for a game that will have no expansions, no graphics upgrades, and only a handful of barebones patches a year. Give us an option to re-enlist at a lower price (perhaps $9.95/month) for, say, the first 3 months and many of us would come back for a while.

My best memory in DAoC is the leveling of my first character, the discovery of areas etc.

A DOAC 2 could launch with absolutely no information given, and I'd be there.

Dozens of MMO's, RTS's, FPS's, etc.

^ This exactly. I'd be quick to rejoin the wife and I if it were $5 a month, or maybe even $9 a month. Such a great game and as someone pointed out the relic attacks were pretty cool to see the realm muster. Granted, later in the server life, you KNEW who was attacking (because the cool, high level people had IRC windows running too ;)) so responding to the attack coudl be tempered with "Oh I know that guild leading the raid; no way we're defending against that..." lol

"The reason I like to play DAoC is primarily due to the way groups are composed in RvR. With so many new games creating characters that are jacks of all trade it is nice to play a game where characters can have very specific roles."

For that you need grouping, whens the last time a MMO was designed expecting you to group, Lotro?

Sure would be nice if you could play DAOC without having to deal with all the bad expansions like Trials of Atlantis. Sure would be nice if you could play for free. Sure would be nice to old frontiers instead of teribad new frontiers. Sure would be nice where people who cheat/hack/exploit are banned and their names posted in the forums. Oh wait, that DAOC service exists but we can't talk about it.

I really enjoyed DAoC, I played an Armsman for the first 2 years I played even though they weren't the best class around at the time. Albion was my first realm, starting from beta, and even though I ended up playing all 3, Albion will have a special place in my heart.

I liked the idea of what someone else said, no one wants to pay $14.95 for a dinosaur mmo. If they dropped the price (I still think $9.95 is too high, personally) to say, $4.95 a month, I would play for a long time again. I tried the come back to camelot for 14 days last year, and I had a blast, there was even a relic raid or two during the few nights I played. I enjoyed it. But I can't justify paying $14.95 for it when I can get a game thats brand new for the same price a month.

I loved the game when it came out. I played from beta thru the 1st year or so. I left when they never updated, changed the graphics, that they said they would change. My biggest complaint was they changed the balance of the game.

Before and during release they said:

Hibs would be magic based. Everything they did would be based around it and all characters had it. Hibs would be THE magic race. Best casters with strongest spells.

Albs would be balanced, not excelling at anything, but not sucking at others. OK magic, ok armor, ok combat.

Norse would suck at magic, with only 1 real caster and a couple minor buff/support casters; but would be the combat leaders.

After release and alot of whining from players, that this wasn't  'right' and they changed the game. Albs became dominent in everything. The had the best tanks, dps and casters. They were controlling all the realms on all the servers and had the most played race. Everyone who played either Hib or Norse, either left or switched. Me and my entire guild left.

RvR was great. 1st time I played RvR, I had the adrenline surge I used have in RL combat; either in the martial arts or Society for Creative Anachronism. There were bugs, where you could be shot through a wall and exploits that never were fixed.

Once they screwed with the balance, it went downhill. This balance issue is what caused Warhammer Online to have all of their classes balanced to the point of boredom; and thus no one plays it.

Daoc is where it deserves to be; in the past.

My favorite moment for DAOC is one of my favorite moments in any mmo.  I was playing a necromancer a few months after the were added and was in a low level battleground.  I was in a large group but we were spread out and we ran into an enemy force on a hill.  They were also spread out but not as much as we were.  Another necro and I were the first to encounter them and began fighting them off as they charged.  Small groups of our own force would join in the fray and be cut down as more forces joined from each side.  At the end of the battle only the other necro and I were left standing at the top of the hill.

I played DAoC for 5 years, starting at about 4 days after launch.  I primarily played casters and so stealthers became the bane of my existence.  I got so sick of being killed by them that I created and twinked a nightshade specifically to hunt and kill other stealthers.  He was my anti-stealther character.  Anyway, I had been running around Thidranki killing every stealther I could find when I stopped behind a tree to rest and was jumped while only at half life by another stealther who was higher level than me.  I somehow managed to kill him rather handily even though I was half dead and he was higher level.  I was so stoked at how well my plan was working out that I jumped out of my chair like, HELL YEAH!!!!  That is one of my favorite memories, though I have many.

As an aside, I have to agree with the people that say that we don't want to pay $15 per month for a game that is a dinosaur in MMO terms.  Many new games seem to be going F2P shortly after launch and yet DAoC is somehow still charging the full subscription price after all this time.  It needs to either go F2P or have the subscription dropped to like $5 to get any people back.

My favorite? oh which one? Probably my guilds huge 8man fights with other very top end players. Smakish, Talini, Sinphul, or hitting mid zerg, Knnuckles, Xyroman and Cats with a little over 20 people. But my favorite memory?

Easter quest, Beno t4. 2 grps of us hibs, set up for a tower camp. 4 druids, 2 bards, 8 PBAoE's and 2 mentalists for Warlord abilities and ST's. We took it fast and waited. 10 minutes, 15 minutes, then finally, Alb zerg came, and oh damn, did they bring some friends. Mindoftheheals and myself were more-or-less trying to lead this little shindig, so we set-up. keeping our storms inside, out of sight, and the PBAoE'ers hiding next to the lord.

We held out for a good 45 minutes from over 100 albs. Rescue at the lead. TONS of low RR toons trying to complete the bunny quest for their "Bracelet of Springtime Folly", and here we were, just messing all that up :)

I'm still subbed, still running awesome fights, and still making new friends, and enemies.

Most of the reasons i've loved and truly miss DAoC have already been covered quite well.  Yet, if ever i get the urge to go back, i'm saddened.  The same feeling I would get if I went back to the country town where I grew up.  Its a sadness bourne from realizing while the game is still there, that time of MMO's is long gone.  That community that played back then are long gone.  And no matter what shiney new toy comes out, I will never have that same excitement that I did first walking into that MMO and experience a true RVR fight over a Keep.


As far as I'm concerned, R.I.P. DAoC.

One of my favorite moments in DAOC was in old frontiers on Bedevere/Hibs, we took a relic and decided to put our zerg to one last test by charging the Alb Emain portal keep.  We took many Albs by surpise when we managed to get inside the PK and kill most of them!  Here is a link to the video one of my guildmates captured:


I played DAOC for many years and it was one of the best times I had playing a video game, mostly because I loved my guild (OSW), but also because the game is so damn good.
