Idea to Help Players Hit by Hurricane

Idea to Help Players Hit by Hurricane -

Mythic and Dark Age of Camelot have gone in-game to try to prevent further loss for players hit by the hurricane. Looking at the issue and realizing that the affected players would obviously not be logging on again for some time, Mythic came up with a unique idea: 

We will be taking all servers down tomorrow, Friday, September 2 at 8:00 AM. We expect them to return by 12:00 PM EDT (probably sooner, of course). Why?

We’ve all got friends and family down south, and there’s a big player community down there as well. Like many of you, we’re struggling to find some small way that we can help besides the basic and obvious “donate to the Red Cross” stuff. We went through the game systems, looking for stuff that people could lose if they are unable to log in for awhile, and paying rent on the in-game houses is fortunately the only thing. We can’t suspend in-game house rent by billing address, so we’re just suspending house rent across the board for the whole game. We have to take the servers down to do it, though.

Right now we’re planning to reinstate in-game rent when we put up the Darkness Rising patch, currently scheduled for early October. We’ll see how things are when the time comes and let you know if that plan changes. Thanks in advance for your patience.
