Help get Camelot Unchained made, a old-school MMORPG, with no hand holding!
Woohoo Darkness Falls.... I mean Depths!
Wow a lot of the mechanics he was talking about in there I've been saying I bet they do for a while now (because I kept hearing no pve, I'm out... and no RVR dungeon because no PVe i'm out).
I kept saying there were all these neat ways to do it, and here we have it confirmed!
I'd have to say, this update excited me the most of any so far.
Just imagine the control mechanics going on on the surface with everything going on underground in the depths. When you gain control of the depths, do you immediately rush down there? because you'll leave your realm defenseless, and you may lose control right away again haha.
Should be some fun stuff.

What are stretch goal $ amounts?
He copied my vision of the RvR dungeon.....I thought The Pit was a better name!,
now I need talk him into my crafting idea...
srsly, some awesome news! It´s crazy but i love the horror themed aspect´s and the TF flavored mechanic gives the crafter class some space to move and really have an impact in creating nasty trap´s and other stuff. (at least i hope so)
MJ mentioned that the depth´s hold some rare materials, great aspect to build a world with zones that aren´t empty but depending on one another. Hope region´s are tied this way often!

Joke. I know realms will still need to hold above ground. I imagine the enterances will be in more contested areas also.

My bad lol. Should be interesting to see how they implement the entrances. In DAOC they were in the newbie PVE zone near the realm's capital. Should be interesting to see how they do the control mechanic too. In DAOC it was whoever held the most keeps. I kind of liked that it was a little difficult to take ownership, and also hard to push the enemy out of it when taking it over.
Yeah I really like the horror theme as well, especially tied in with each of the three realms architecture/etc.. having influence in different parts of the depths. The "going to hell" dungeons have been done over and over. Nice to see some spooky/scary horror type theme, of dead/ghosts/spirits/haunting etc...
All the things you'll find there sound pretty awesome, but the thought of basically controlling a raid boss and its minions to try to defend the depths sounds pretty amazing, and rewarding to both sides. Both sides will be leveling/skilling/progressing off of it, and the defenders will want to do it to kill as many of the invaders as possible, and to give the other players in there more time to organize etc... Also the invaders will want to do it to get to all the valuabe stuff in there. Sounds so awesome! Imagine how great it will feel to be the raid boss guy, and to defeat the attackerse hahaha. Dozens of enemies dead scattered around.
You stay sassy!
The DEPTHS = Drool
Damn man, this game sounds more awesome with every update.
Its a real shame that there isn't a publisher that would back this game with tons of $, yet not tell the design team they have to do things a certain way.
If this game had the funding of games like WoW or Warhammer, millions of dollars, it could seriously blow anything out of the water, and from the sound of things it still might do it as far as gameplay is concerned.
With the way things seemt o be going, I don't think a whole lot of people will miss PvE at all.
Its just that this is different. Its never been done this way before, and nobody really knows what to expect from this system where we don't have to rely on killing a boss to get nice items.
It sounds as if there may not be as much elitism in this game, but I guess the big guilds may find a way to alienate the small guys in The Depths.
Oh boy, if they add in collision detection, I'm guessing we'll see the "uber guilds" blocking off access to other players from the most valuable mines. Wouldn't that be cute?
Hey guys !!! I'm a rabid old DAoC player who still misses it every day, so I am really excited about CU. I have already made my Kickstarter donation (or w/e you call it), and look forward to every daily update in my email. In today's update, Mark mentioned "stretch goals". Being a total Kickstarter noob, I have no idea what is meant by this. Can someone bring me up to speed please?
Thanks in advance!!!!

In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

Hahaha, so true!
Originally posted by Kyleran The only bad news in all of this was that the Depths is a stretch goal, seems like it should be part of the core delivery, heck, could be the only delivery as far I am concerned.
Agreed, it mainly depends on $ amount passed 2 million it will require.
