Old Frontier Server Would You Come Back

RavkeenRavkeen Member UncommonPosts: 310

To All Current, Former and Future players:

 

 


Would you be interested in playing on a new Dark Age of Camelot server that does the following?

  • Brings back the Old Frontiers territory
  • Brings back the old Keeps, Relics, and related systems
  • Does not include the following systems or components:
    • Master levels
    • Champion levels
    • Artifacts
    • Minotaur Relics
    • Champion weapons
    • Mythirians
  • Focuses on the "classic" zone territories that existed prior to the expansion packs
  • Focuses mainly on the class types that existed prior to the expansion packs
  • No buffbots, but rather a universally available buffing option

    I LOVE the idea of a universal buffing system. I kind of hated the need to have a buff bot and the plethera of buff bots and that ruined the game for me. I also love old frontiers. If they can make an old frontiers system then it would be nice if they intergrated these into Gaheris somehow, but hell I would even play such a server on a RvR realm.

    Back on pendragon they had a NPC which game buffs out placed at the Portal keeps during some tests. I wager it would be similar

    IM all for it....One last time on the Emain Milegate.

    I'd be there

    I will definitely come back for this.  It was one of the major things I wanted to happen for this game.  The other being updated animations, ui, and overall clunkiness feel of movement. 

     

    Currently playing:
    LOTRO & WoW (not much WoW though because Mines of Moria rocks!!!!)

    Looking Foward too:
    Bioware games (Dragon Age & Star Wars The Old Republic)

    my ideal restarting point would be after SI was implemented, before TOA and New Frontiers.   That server would appeal to me.

    It does sound like a cool idea, but I think in practice it will not work. DAoC does not have the sub numbers to spread people over yet another server. Also, while many have great memories of the old days, that is not because OF was so great but because the game was still quite new. In fact, milegates where a pain in the a.... :D

    I dont think OF will improve the gaming experience one gets now from the classic servers  by a great margin.

    Many will probably roll a couple toons, make it to 50 eventually only to find that it's still the same game with fewer classes and go back to their old server or quit.

    You under estimate the amount of hate for a lot of the classes that have been released with expansions and the amount of hate for cross-realmers. A new server would kill the cross-realming, because there wouldn't be a clustered server to cross-realm to.

    I am interested in whether or not we would start from the original starting areas, or from Cotswold and etc. Also, would the mobs be the levels they were back then or the levels they are now?

    I totally agree.

    People are already spread out enough in DAoC.  This would just spread them out even more.  It's bad enough when games add more and more area, but to add another completely new server would make things worse.

    I already play, but i would drop everything i am doing to join this server. No TOA, old emain and if they figure a way to deny buff bots? Sure, seems applealing. Would more folks return? Hard to say. There are so many choices for games out there now, it almost seems that those who would have 'come back' are back and playing by now. For the amount of players in the game now, is it fair to say that this is the true community?

    I recall a progame a buddy downloaded, where you roll a 50, any gear and deke around in Emain what ever race u want. We played for hours , then it got old.... hope a new server is not another flavor of the month.

    This will be AMAZING! As long as they keep /level out of it, which I believe they will, they've gone on record saying it was a mistake they wish they could take back.

  • ArzhAngelArzhAngel Member Posts: 427

    Yes whitout blinking. 

    Though i would like to se some ajustments like, no stune, and no instents like stune, mess. 

    And beside that i like to then remove, styles as PA: Back Stabs.

    The same goes for any bow styles in stealth. 

    But not stealh as it is, beside a cool down after any combat, before intering stealth again. And no vanis. 



    And beside that i love to see, the BD skills loverd FOR real. :)



    But anyway i would start ....

  • bonespiritbonespirit Member Posts: 37

    i know its not acceptable, but remove all insta teleport things. They've ruined the immsersive experience and it will.

  • Player_420Player_420 Member Posts: 686

    yeah I got that in my e-mail or something, so I told em I would def. come back for sure!

    Im rly excited, hope we hear word soon to see if they'll do it or not!

    I play all ghame

  • fulmanfufulmanfu Member Posts: 1,523

    im with bone, want to go somewhere? get on the damn horse and take a shower :D

  • brostynbrostyn Member, Newbie CommonPosts: 3,092

    Sure, I'd try it out for a month. I doubt I would stick around, though. Even DAoC in its current form is archaic. I can't imagine it being too bareable.

  • Thomas2641Thomas2641 Member Posts: 143

    I would come back to DAoC for such a server, yes!  -That is if cross-realming was not possible...

  • EffectEffect Member UncommonPosts: 949

    I most certainly would come back to play on a old frontier styled server. Especially if they removed some of the expansions.  Honestly I liked Shrouded Isles (enjoyed the Hib areas) and the Catacomb expansions though. The instances were needed after the population dropped off. I think they'd have to keep those to be honest but the rest I'm not to concerned about keeping.

  • GangrenaGangrena Member Posts: 14

    I´m sure that i will give this server a try, but only will I stay if the Exp rating is higher than Old-frontiers. It still hurts me thinking the hours I spent soloing those trees in the Old-frontiers with my unbuffed ranger.

  • Dan256Dan256 Member Posts: 26

    Somehow this didn't seem to be mentioned, but it would probably be a good idea to go vote on the official site for this rather than in this thread.

    I'm playing DAOC on classic currently and i will jump onto that type server in a heartbeat.  I loved the mile gate fights of old. I loved the door beating keep taking way back. I think you will see a huge influx of old school DAOC servers return if not only for nostalgic reasons. It's really too bad that Mythic has waited to do things we've asked them to do for years. No buffbots mean less stealthers which will also be good.  IMO NF and OF should be the only area's to PVP in if not on a Dred. No battlegrounds period. Force the action into a single area. I fall asleep half the time trying to find action on Classic servers period..

    Meet three white trees ( TWT ) ahh the good ole stealther days

  • EmmericEmmeric Member Posts: 54

    People complain making a new server would hurt the pops across the other servers..

    Well of course i play on classic in the bgs because i dont have 100's of hours to farm and buy all the gear i need to COMPETE at 50 PVP.

    Old school server Epic Armor random weapon drop and dragon gear best in game again im game.

    My arms on Pellinor is still in player made armor and sc gear. When toa came out and you stood in ocean something or other waiting for hours and hours to do 1 ML just for it to finnaly start and you have to log because it took 5 hours for 75 people to show up. So u think oh well cant be all the bad you go out to E-main Hero wondeing around has a TOA mallet and smashes your head in for 800 dmg a swing.

    Doesnt take long for people to say F**K this im done see ya! And we have what we have to day the lifers who have all the gear and the casual players who try to get some peices but dont have time to it.

    In the end the casual players get the shaft. Were gimped before we even start making our toon. Casual players will always be at a disadvantage in any raid type gear fest and PVP reward system.

    No 1 button spam cheesedick classes like the Vamp claw claw claw claw for insane amounts of dmg or the BD ,send pets hid in tower with no fear of being killed. Or the tic who spams his pulse fire for large amounts of dmg in seconds.

    No overcapped gear no rare weapons that are truly 22.5 dps tho it says 16.5 dps. but some how there 16.5 hits twice as hard as any  16.5 player made weapon.

    If they truely wanna make it ORIGINS remove RA's after all it only befits the players who play 40 hours a week while the rest of us are out making a living. And they were not in the game when it first came out.

    No ra's mean relics actully have an impact again in the game not im rr8 with mop5 mob3 ip3 purge3 your 20% melle dmg doesnt mean shit when the other players have the RR to off set it by a hugh margin.

    People cry i wont play with out ra's. Well then they wernt around ion the begining when fights lasted a long time and took some tactics and skill to beat the other realm players. There no skill when a high RR group runs across the low RR one and they have 2 healers with DI 3 and wipe the other group like they where level 25's. Ra's make a hugh impact on who lives and who dies.

    Pops starting going bye bye when ra's where out for a few months when the casual player would lock up on another player and lose because the other guy had PURGE and IP.

    Make it old school they way YOU designed it  fom the start and stop giving in to the whine asses who complain they cant kill anyone solo and need there dps increased.

    Game was never about the soloist was group dependent for pvp.

    One last thing DO NOT make a unique buffing system your only gonna shun players from rolling healing classes and more will make solo stealth classes when they can have free buffies.

    You want buffs then group up and get a cleric class !!!

    /end of rant
