    Sounds interesting, loved the game, have been gone for 17 years or so, but hey! I'm not playing any sword and board games at the moment.
    Is there a launch date?

    It's the same as any other tab target MMO out there.

    If you're talking about macros and qbinds, then I could understand.. but it's not really rocket science, quite easy to use /qbind and /macro since it's explained right there in the client.

    "Midgard best Realm ever" that's fighting talk, I think you are going to have to step outside with your Runemaster. I will get my Albion...hang on he is not on the class list, I am done for. :)

    Yes I signed up today and shows my access as endless conquest.. An aside note, as the OP indicated the graphics are dated but can be spruced up, sharpened, brightened quite a bit with Reshade.. I'd post a screenshot but apparently I'm not smart enough to do that on these forums.

    I have to agre that the the controls for movement, turning, zooming in/out etc are old and nasty compared to modern MMOS.

    One of the first moments I had in a game I had in DAoC. I was walking around Albion and walked up on am arching stone bridge and it started to rain. The draw distance gradually reduced as the rain fogged the land up, and I just watched the rain for a few minutes until the shower stopped. It was gorgeous.

    I've held this game in the back of my mind ever since, I can't wait to try it again. :)

    Midgard best realm....bah. Albion/Hibernia tie for first. Midgard is the black sheep of the family and not allowed on the list;).

    Well, I guess this qualifies as F2P, but they did pretty much remove the convenience of operating with a house, lol. It should provide for a decent introduction to the game, but there is enough restrictions on what this new F2P account can acquire that it's only true competition against emulated servers is stability / security.

    When I saw that you couldn't have a minstrel, I sort of lost interest in even trying it.
    I did have some great fun on relic raids in the old days.
    RvR was sort on broke on my old server as the two other realms would join forces against us and they still lost.

    Co-op PvE is what I like best, but this sounds interesting enough to give it a try for free. Might be surprised. Never did mind much about graphics (don't like games stuck in ortho view though, or super-blocky like Minecraft), and control "problems" are usually for people with fast reflexes and special equipment. I do look for elements that help with immersion and broaden the experience, getting away from the feeling I'm stuck in a series of events that everybody else goes through with little variation.

    If you like co-op PVE, play on the Gaheris server. It's what I did.

    I downloaded to check out my characters from 2001 to 2004. Was only able to resurrect one of my accounts, but it was still fun to see them again. Then as I was going through the list, I noticed about 70 to 80 percent of my characters required a subscription to play. So that lasted all of about 5 minutes. Uninstalled.

  • numaticnumatic Member UncommonPosts: 649
    A few class restrictions? They cut out 70% of the classes. Being that restricted in a 20 year old game does them no favors. if you want people to subscribe, dont restrict their ability to play the game. Restrict their access to non fundamental (but useful and very helpful) game items/luxuries such as owning a house, cosmetics, boosts and (slower) RP gain. Its a big nope from me. I have zero interest in playing any of the classes listed. This FtP version is going to be one big bust.

    Everyone is complaining that they can't play all of their old characters. I don't think this free to play model is set up just to entice old players. I think it's set up to entice old players to sub while having their friends, who have never tried DAoC, try the game for free. Maybe even have old players log in for free and decide they want to sub.

    This would be great for me and my daughter. She remembers playing when she was 8 (Shes 26 now). It holds a place in her heart, but it is old and she doesn't know how much she will like it 18 years later. Now we can find out.

    DAoC doesn't have cash shops and they aren't selling the game. Old or not, a sub is the only way they make money.
  • skadadskadad Member UncommonPosts: 392
    still, should have all classes for free, but less rp gain/no house etc instead. To lure players in, this is just a bad decision of a f2p model imo.

    Class and Race

    What classes are available in each realm?

    Returning Endless Conquest accounts can access all classes on characters that meet or exceed the following restrictions:

    • The character is an EC-enabled race and class combination (of any level or play time)
    OR
     
    • The characer is not an EC-enabled race and class combination
    • The character is level 15 or above
    • The character has 1-day of in-game play time or more
    • The character was created on or before the launch of Endless Conquest

    Otherwise, all Endless Conquest accounts can only create *new* characters of the following classes in each realm:

    • Albion:
      • Cleric
      • Friar
      • Paladin
      • Sorcerer
      • Mercenary
    • Midgard:
      • Shaman
      • Healer
      • Valkyrie
      • Runemaster
      • Berserker
    • Hibernia:
      • Druid
      • Warden
      • Bard
      • Mentalist
      • Blademaster
    It seems if you have existing characters, they are playable. This coincides with me being able to log in to every character I've tried so far (I have a lvl 50 of every class in the game).

    I'm not sure why some people are quitting because they can't play their characters.

    On a side note, all buffing classes are free so everyone should have a free buffbot.

    I just reinstalled the game to check which of my characters were showing the subscribe button instead of the play button and noticed there was a patch since yesterday. Didn't read the patch notes, but I did notice all but one of my characters are now playable.

    I still get "subscribe" with my only character.

    It is possible that the character you have is not part of the classes in the F2P portion of the game.

  • ultimateduckultimateduck Member RarePosts: 753
    I have a level 50 of every class. The only characters I couldn't play for free were my non-level 50 battleground characters. Those required a subscription. Every other character was playable
