As you said, careful what you put as a stretch goal :) it might just happen.

I know ALOT of guys and gals who have been waiting, well forever for this to happen.

Keep the vision going, and look forward to more information.

I played Dark Age of Camelot, no, I LIVED Dark Age of Camelot for over 10 years on the legendary Bors server. With what Mark Jacobs has said, I cannot wait until march to donate my hard earned cash.

Perhaps Deerhunter will live again .... and all of you will die, again.

 

End of Line.

Via Rob: 

 

·         Classes will be specialized. You will have specific roles to fill.

·         The classes will be preset. You will start off with the role you are to fill. You won’t start off as a warrior and end up as a necromancer.

·         Crafting and resource gathering will be intimately link to RvR. Some of the high end resources for example could be in highly contested areas and you would need a group to go collect them.

·         There will be player housing. This is still being fleshed out. It could be in safer areas but you will also be able to build in contested areas.

·         There will not be an auction house. This is to help drive the economy to be community driven. Face to face interactions.

·         Cash shop: Nothing that could be considered Pay to Win will be in the game. If anything it will be cosmetic in nature. They are not sure that there will even be a cash shop.

·         There will be multi-tiered subs. They are not looking to raise the price of a sub. If anything this will allow people to have multiple accounts and get a discount on the price.

·         The goal for the kickstarter will be 2 million USD.

·         This game will be system driven to make players want to RvR.

·         We could see a herald like functions for the game.

·         Player looting is not planned.

·         Mark likes both tab target and action combat. They are still working on how the combat will be done.

·         There will be multiple servers.

Yo Mark,

 

I'm a former player of DFC, Magestorm, DAOC and Warhammer.  I'll support this kickstarter and am looking forward to the game.  I'm not saying I'm not skeptical but I'll throw some money down.  Oh and if you ever want to put DFC up on a small server...I'd still pay to play it.  MUDs are still dope.

Thanks for the text recap, I don't have the time/patience to watch or listen content anymore (probably also due to being a speed reader and devouring content that way). I appreciate the effort! :)

Also - DAOC has always been my one true love in MMOs... I'll donate my money to the kickstarter in faith alone that the end result of CU is just the equivalent of DAOC 2.0 (although it sounds much more than that).

I'm loving the ongoing updates and detailed communication so far; please try to keep the community in the loop throughout, Mark!

Mark Jacobs is saying the same thing as the Darkfall developers said years ago: Make a game they want to play (not for the masses).

Mark may succeed due to being a known person alone.  Getting fired from EA was the best thing that ever happened to him, right?

This is years away and I am sure there are guys writing down their super cool character names and drawing pictures of their avatars.  This is truly nothing to get worked up about till the final days. But mmorpg still has to plop this crap in front of ya light years in advance. Guild warrs 4 will be out by the time this releases!

They call me Downer, Debbie Downer./tips hat

He also mentioned Player shops so that you don't have to stand around selling all day. Reminds me of SWG a little!

I REALLY hope they follow through with the world rebuilding aspect of crafting. When he started talking about that I had some flashbacks to Horizons Online and, im not gonna lie, I got a litte hard right there.

Intrinsic writes: This really impressed me, and i wasn't expecting it? to. I love DAoC and community was key, our Palomides forum is still up 12 years later, no other game has come close to the community of DAoC. Games these days just seem to miss that something DAoC had, in times of need we put aside our differences and fought as one for the good of our respective Realms. This vid link just captures what it was about DAoC that was special [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t0CBcGGRimQ[/url] Fri Feb 15 2013 1:15PM Report
Nanfoodle writes: Loved DAoC in its day and played it for years but just not intrested. To win me over it would need some PvE, even if a few solid open world dungeons to go unwind with friends would be enough to keep me happy.  Hope you do well though =-) Fri Feb 15 2013 1:16PM Report

I played DAOC for many years, I beta tested WAR, even winning my way into beta with a short story submission.  Honestly, I am not sure I'm up for the pure pvp anymore like I use to be.  I may be too laid back these days to appreciate it, but the idea is intriguing.  I can honestly say I'd be willing to kick down some cash just to see what you do with this.

Oh, and...DAOC stealth mechanics......DAOC oldschool archery...not that lame casting based stuff that it got changed too...and um....yay for casters having to stand still.  Easymode casters in games now are lame.

Loving the answers about the game so far esspecially the comments about looking at taking ideas from both tab target and action methods.

  I do hope that they look at mounted combat more, as I've seen some real progress in that area from games like Black Deserts from Pearl-abyss.

  I think it's important also to say that graphicly the game needs to be on par with games like Black Desert/Archeage/Bless/Vindictus.

Which makes the choice of the engine a big deal!

 I have never Kick started a game, but I will be in on the ground floor the first day because I see the Fire and passion MJ and his team has for this project, and reminds me of how I felt when I worked on my first project, It truely is a love affair!

Mark Jacobs needs to kick in 1 dollar for every time he said, "Ahhhh..." in that video, which btw was soul crushing and generic.
