Grab Bag

Grab Bag -

As usual, it's the weekend, and there's a brand new Grab Bag over at Dark Age of Camelot's Camelot Herald. Also following tradition, we have presented a small sampling of the grab bag, and you can read the whole thing by visiting the link below:


There's a bit in there that says "as we proposed it." It's sort of a key clause. Thanks in advance.

Q: How many people voted "I don't see my choice" on the poll?

A: 8%. That 8% seems, based on feedback forms, to be split between people who did not want a third line at all and people who want a third line, but not the one that we listed.

Reports that there was a vast and teeming multitude that didn't want a third line at all appear to be based mainly on message boards, not on the player base as a whole. That's why we gather feedback in many different ways as opposed to message boards where the participants don't even need to be players.

Had the poll been about something entirely new to the game, we'd have given the boards more weight - entirely new features are usually meant to entice people to return or to get new people to sign up. But the third line feature was meant for active, existing customers, so we focused on TL feedback, the poll, and feedback forms from active customers.

What the poll said, without a doubt, was that the system as we proposed it was not going to be a big or even a moderate hit. Back to the ol' drawing board.

Q: (Insert question here about "too steep to climb" areas in Cathal Valley, the new high level BG)

A: This came to me from the Rolling Stone, who is in charge of maps and zone work: "A little further clarification with regards to the 'too steep to climb' in the new Battleground, Cathal Valley. The 'too steep to climb' code is not prominent on every hill in the zone. It is only within the center section, aptly named Cathal Valley. Viewing the center layout, we hope you will enjoy the necessary tactics involved when dealing against members of the opposing realm in this area."

We plan to have a Cathal Valley Pendragon event on Saturday, June 17th. I hope you can all come out and get the experience you need to give us good feedback on the new BG.
