OP  5/05/10 11:43:32 AM#1

Carrie Gouskos recently released her April 2010 Producer's Letter which focused on the upcoming 1.3.5 changes, as well as a number of community initiatives the Mythic team are focusing on, including Ventrilo developer chats. The real standout of Carrie's letter, however, were new details on 1.3.6. Carrie revealed that come 1.3.6 players would be able to create both Order and Destruction characters on the same servers.

For those of you worried about rampant cross-realming, Carrie's assured us that the change would come with a massive lockout timer to prevent just that,  so don't get the pitchforks out just yet!

Read the full letter here.

We recently interviewed Carrie Gouskos on patch 1.3.5, where she also revealed to us some additional details on 1.3.6, so be sure to check it out!

Prep for 1 NA and 1 EU server?

I'm surprised that Blizzard hasn't done this for WoW, though it's probably in the pipeline and will added as a paid service to squeeze more cash out of it's members.

You can already play both factions on one server in WoW.

The idea of having a few random people become something like large superheroes in a fight sounds like lots of fun. Sadly I haven't reactivated my WAR account for a looong time, and until some actually new content gets released, and not only tweaking existing one, I won't do so.

Let's play Fallen Earth (blind, 300 episodes)

Let's play Guild Wars 2 (blind, 45 episodes)

 what do you mean blizard havent done this? If your meaning that they havent allowed you to play both factions on the same server, well they have, several months back and it has totally ruined alot of servers. Many have paid to switch most of their characters to the opposite faction on the same server whilst keeping a low/hardly played character.

Alot of servers are now 90-95% 1 faction based, leaving the remaining players totally up the pipehole on those servers with some places never again obtainable to do. Some things like for the alliance/for the horde  (mainly alliance as most players are now horde on almost all servers) and what you have is people switchign factions and doing warning shouts so they can get rdy to stop them (usually 500 people waiting to kill 30-40 that are going for teh achievement).

Anyways, thats above the point, blizard have allowed you to play both factions on the same server and its ruined quite a few (but has brought in alot of revenue with people paying to switch servers or join the already overflowing faction population). Warhammer may suffer as they do not have a 10th of teh servers blizard has, so this could be the nail in the coffin.

 I should have been more clear, I meant on the PvP servers.

At one time, you couldn't, but you can now.

It's not only you. It is a bad idea.

As I said - it appears that they are prepping for merging to one server on each side of the Atlantic.

dunno, I'll always play an underdog faction.

scenarios pop more often, more red to kill..... from my experience it sucks to be in the overpopulated faction

 Yeah IMO this hastened the downfall of DAoC.

Agreed, I consider myself someone that likes to choose his words wisely but in this case all I can say is that it is quite evident that this game has had the most fn' incompetent monkeys driving the game into the ground since the very beginning. It's as if they've had a death wish like none other before it.

The fucktards making the decisions for this game just have to be secretly employed by a competitor. I refuse to believe otherwise. Only one company could be that stupid and SOE already holds that mantle.

Your fail comment, failed.

Another move away from what made DAOC a great game, and why this one is found to be so lacking.

Arrogant, Condescending, Dismissive, Elitist, "Meany", you speak as if these are bad things?

As was said in the OP without having to read the full article, there will be significant lockout timers to prevent hopping on alts to help the other side. All theyre doing is allowing you 2 play both sides on the same server, rather than having to have toons on 2 seperate servers for opposing factions. You wont be allowed to just relog and switch instantly. I would expect it would be minimum 1-2 hour or so lockout timer. Thats more than enough time to cause any real impact to anything currently going on in order to give 1 side too much of an advantage.

Though i am kind of wondering exactly how that is going to work. Will you need to log off of 1 faction, tell the game you want to switch... and then just wait for the timer to switch over without being able to play? Or will you be able to tell it you want to switch, and continue playing your current toon until the switch actually takes place. Seems like a pretty bad move if in order to switch, youve got to logout and wait an extended period of time before being able to even play at all.

I would see it working like this:

You log in your Order char  - the lock out timer starts. For the next 2 hours you can only play your order characters. But after two hours the lockout time is open. Then you can choose to switch to Destruction. If you do switch, the lockout timer starts again. Now for the next two hours you can only play Destruction characters.

So this does in some way prevent you from switching one faction to see what they are doing and then immediately switching back to the other to participate in the prevention of any enemy plans within the next 2 hours. Of course it doesn't stop you telling the rest of your guild/alliance over voicechat, it's just that for the next 2 hours you are locked into having to inform on the enemy - but this allows you to keep feeding them accurate info right up to the point of the lockout expiring.

But really is there that much rivalry in the game these days? Do people really care? Is someone going to come out and shock me and say that "realm pride" exists in Warhammer?
