OP  8/05/10 9:07:15 PM#1

In today's Staff Blog, Garrett Fuller marvels at the fact that small studios can make snap decisions for the good of the game and to please players. Garrett also wonders why on earth there has never been a sequel to Dark Age of Camelot, still one of the most innovative games out there. What other studio has made a three faction PvP system? *crickets*

So in almost 9 years and all the MMOs that have come out, no one has created a 3 faction PvP system with an open zone environment.....dear god what do we need to do to get this simple game design made?

3 Factions, 4 Factions, 5 Factions.....give us choice. Here is an idea, don't build an endless game world with crazy huge zones that take weeks to explore and force us to grind levels up to 80 because, well, that is the norm you think we like that as players??

Read more of Garrett's thoughts about DAoC 2 in the Staff Blog.

Doh! For a new version, it could be nice, and it was quite fun to run and discover =D But the leveling was quite long meh ! And I never really understood the crafting system.

Warhammer is NOTHING like DAoC, so calling that junk DAoC2 is a sad mistake. DAoC was (still) best MMO ever. MAKE A PART 2 !!!

The fundamental flaw with WAR is that Mythic forgot what made DAOC great: a game world where PVE and PVP were mutually exclusive of each other but gave the player an option to take part in either at anytime. WAR made them mutually inclusive and failed as a result.

Hear, hear! DAoC 2 would be an awesome addition to the mmorpg space. For me though they would need to make some decisions to garner my subscription.

First, keep the pve/pvp systems fairly similar. Take out the boring parts of PvE (especially the insanely long grind), and allow those interested to get to the end game a bit faster.

Secondly, reduce the importance of Crowd Control and Gear in PvP. Running around with an 8 man gank squad and having the first group mez determine the outcome of most fights is stupid. Also being able to have a set of gear made that basically made you almost invulnerable to all but the best geared players is equally stupid.

Keep the Frontier fighting and Battleground systems very similar, especially the increased XP gains for leveling in a battleground. The keep and relic system made the game great and should have been expanded upon a bit.

Lastly, keep the 3 realm system. It kept the populations mostly in balance (although Albion always seemed to have had more on my server).

Well, there was Auto Assault...

Emphasis on "was."   That was the only game I know of that did a three-faction system, each of the three kept separate in their own PvE areas, until clashing in a shared PvP area, (sadly) more similar to DAOC than any other MMO.

Not much point in getting into the details, but of course they did a whole lot of other stuff very wrong.  So wrong, that I doubt the dev's basic understand of gaming fundamentals, to such an extent that I wouldn't trust them to do a checkers simulator, never mind another MMO.  

..but I digress.  Point being, I think its at least worth mentioning that the system has been imitated, at least once.

When I want a single-player story, I'll play a single-player game. When I play an MMO, I want a massively multiplayer world.

I would also like to see DAOC 2, but that interest would wane if Mythic, EA, or Jacobs were involved.

Well, with most of that said you may as well be playing Warhammer or WoW.. Don't you understand that most of those things are what made DAoC what it is? I played the game from Beta up until about a year ago and I still love the game. Of course I tried all the new games that came out but none compare to it when it comes to the how the whole game just seemed to fit together. Importance of Crowd control is a big factor and that is why you had Realm Abilities!! Purge.. IP SoS to offset the CC and tanks with Det.. It was only like that at first where it determinded the outcome but than again it was also a better game back than too..  I think everyone would agree Pre-ToA was the best time in the game.. I know it was for me. yes CC was very powerful I remember owning a FG after ToA with my sorc solo...  The game was also more social in the begining as well.. So thats why it was better, what they need to do is implement ways not to farm.. or powerlevel.. The grinding was long but it also made a feel of worth, like you accomplished something instead of doing limitless questing.. and you'll be 50 in a week... the grinding forced people to be more social imo.. or make questing harder like in AoC I think their group questing is good it makes for a good social network so you can get stuff done and make friend or guildies or find your true love? lol anyhow.. About the CC well.. now it isn't really like that I mean.. I've lead 8vs8's and 8vs16' and even the famous 8vs24 and won but have been in some very good 8vs8's that lasted a good 10minutes because both sides knew how to play well.. I ran Release guild in Igraine for a while and it was fun going against Snarf's group on the latenights or against the alb zergs yes Alb was overpopulated so maybe it's something that needs to be looked at? maybe make a population limit to each realm so that way it comes out more even? at the same time do something like guildwars where there are instances held on diffrent servers so it's 1 big server you join with a limit to each instance so it cuts the lag except that may complicate things in RvR unless it was run off of a supercomputer built by maybe Nasa? or something of the sort.. 3 realms is great of course, the BG thing though.. If you up the Exp for it that means you'd have to up the level cap for each BG because they would level faster and be kicked out sooner unless they turn xp off which was a bad thing to do.. they should have kept the leveling on and rp gain on always because it would force people to keep going with their chars and go to other bg's and than eventually get 50 and go rvr..  The Relics was great it always was it gave the whole realm something to fight for especially in OF because of the bonuses it ment alot more, not as much now as than because of Artifacts and all the Cata and Laby stuff that you get bonuses from... sure it helps a bit more but not as much as having all that.. that Arties are ok.. but they went overboard after that.. the old RA's were also better like you had prereqs for IP and such.. Anyhow YES DAoC 2 would be great if they can keep it the same for the most part just improve graphics and not make it cartoonish warhammer/wow looking.. and keep the PvP and PvE seperate of course it's better that way so people have a choice but make PvE a big part of the PvP because everyone can help eachother better that way instead of seperating the pvpers from the pve'ers because I know as a PvPer I have met some great PvEers that helped me out alot and without them I would have to learn it myself from scratch and get people together and try this and try that until I figure it out when I want to get back out there and PvP more!! get it right the first time.. That is 1 of the main reason why the game was successful!! also the Stealth game was the best ever no doubt about that.. chaincombos.. I have tons of Ideas myself playing so many games but I'm no dev lol anyhow.. DAoC still #1

It is a double pleasure to gank the ganker.
-Raven Treeavelli

8/06/10 1:37:12 AM#19

I played DAoC for about 6 years until I felt that I had done everything there was to do.  Without a doubt it was the best MMO out there when it came out.  It took many things that were good and dumped a lot of things that weren't so good about previous MMOs.  I have wondered the same thing as the author about why there haven't been any 3 faction open RVR zones in nearly 10 years since it came out.  Also, I'm not sure why developers can't seem to understand that many of us like to PVP for fun, but we don't want to spend all day being ganked by high level players while we are questing.  That is why the way DAoC was set up was such a winning formula.  You quested when you felt like it, you went and PVP'd when you felt like it, and when you were sick of it, you went back and quested again.  No one came and ganked you 5 times while you were trying to quest and then camped your corpse just to be jerks.

Who remembers Darkness Falls?  Gaining control of the dungeon and then sending out ganking squads to clear out the enemy players on the other side was a ton of fun.  Then, when you lost control of it while you were inside you would see the announcement and be thinking OH CRAP.  The warnings would go out through the chat that the enemy players were gathering at the entrance and the gank squad was on the way.  Suddenly we were all working together to try to take as many of them out as we could before we were killed and exiled to the outside of the dungeon.  We would all be up on the starting platform at the beginning of the dungeon where they couldn't get to us and trying to hold out as long as we could.  Eventually we were all killed and then it was back to the frontier to try to capture some keeps and get DF back.

Man, those were good times.

Ah....Darkness Falls.  Yes, the memories are flooding back in.  I remember when that was launched and our guild headed out to the frontier to help capture DF.  Once that was done, into DF we go and the HUNT was on!

Maybe I'm old school, but there's something about the Age of Chivalry, King Arthur, Camelot, T.H. White's "The Once and Future King", PALADINS!!!!

Thanks Raventree, so many stories could be written about DAOC and the trials / tribulations of winning back your Relics, RvR in the frontiers, Darkness Falls, PvE like the Tepok mine when it was "cash and carry".

Maybe I'll pen my favorite story in the DAOC forum. epilog if you will.
