A Moment of Silence

WillFerrell-WeddingCrashers-funeralWell Warhammer Online officially closes it’s doors….let us have a moment of silence….

 

…Ok, Warhammer Online or WAR will always have a special place in my heart. It had such great potential, and it just fizzled out.

Out with the Old, In with the New.

Camelot Unchained keeps taking shape and it’s one of those games I am eagerly awaiting. Hopefully the lessons of WAR were learned, and this game reaches the potential that it should be.

Just if there are Clerics, don’t fuck with the smite.

 

 

 

Camelot Unchained Kickstarter

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , on April 2, 2013 by theerivs

girlchainIn a little bit the Camelot Unchained Kickstarter is about to start. Looking at some of the Reward Tiers. There are some pretty awesome deals. A twitter friend of mine said he was going to start his own Kickstarter to raise 10k for that tier. LOL!  The 50-55 is looking pretty tasty to me.  I’m definately going to give, because I really believe in Mark Jacobs, and the vision of his studio CSE. If you get a chance you should read his Foundations. If any game is going to pull me from WoW, I want to say this game has the biggest chance….That or Scarlet Blade with the bewbs.

Anyway I suggest you take a look at this game, and maybe give a few bucks, I just wish I had enough money to get an ale named after me. River’s Rotgut.

I don’t want another DAOC2

miriam-wowAs Mark Jacobs puts out a Dev Blog, I would have to agree with him. I mean I loved Dark Ages of Camelot. It what started my love of MMORPGS. There’s alot of things in DAOC though that can be brought over to Camelot Unchained. I’m going to list a few of them.

5 things from DAOC I would like to see in Camelot Unchained.

1. Unique Classes – I like classes with flavor. In DAOC each class was different, a healer on Albion side, wasn’t the same thing as a Healer on Hiberian side. Sure they both healed, but clerics smited, and I may or may not be correct tree hugging healers were mezzers (Crowd Controllers too) I don’t really know I hated those tree hugging bastards. My point is difference, and no cookie cutting.

2. Realm Pride - Pick a side, and be a part of that side. If you make an Arthurian toon on one server, you can’t have a Viking on the same server. I think not having toons on different sides  on the same server will help a long way in forcing people to choose a side, and stick with it.

3. Class Interdependency - Healers can’t kill shit, and DPS can’t last long without healers, and they all need some heavily armored monsters taking the hits. This way it allows for awesome team building,  and doesn’t make one class more important than the other.

4. Challenges – I use to love a good Mile Gate battle in DAOC, it presented a challenge. The Defenders were there, it was a choke point, and we had to play our very best to overcome them, and when we did…wow….it was awesome.

5. Darkness Falls Type Place – Darkness Falls was a dungeon only one side controlled at a time, when the other side won it they cleared out the losing side. Nothing inspired more blood lust when we got control of DF in DAOC, or nothing inspired more fear then sitting there solo and seeing that the enemies just took control….a gank was incoming. I know this game is strictly RvR, but DF was fun.

These are just a few of the concepts i enjoyed in DAOC, which I think can be brought to Camelot Unchained in a new format, but still have the spirit there.

P.S. I apologize the picture has nothing to do with the post… That picture is for a friend of mine since he was harping on me, I never post pictures of hotties lately….enjoy.

I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it.

flashdance1Bring back the Smite Cleric Damn it!

Some great news coming out of City State Entertainment with a new teaser. Also Mark Jacobs gives us some more info in a great article on Massively telling us more about the new project Camelot Unchained.

Is it going to be niche with PvP only? Sure is. I think though if done right it will have a great core following and be a success. I like PvP, and so do most of my fellow players in the guild.

I’m really looking forward to this, and if I had a soul I would sell it to get into closed beta.
