DAOC Classic Server
Is this for real? If so, I am super excited. I haven't played in 10+ years but I will def be back for a classic server if it does come out.
This VOD contains the most recent information regarding the upcoming new server.
TLDR notes taken by Zzx/Zyzix:
Q: Is the team working on another server?
Q: What does it consist of?
A: Classic, inferring 1.65 patch with QOL changes. People don’t want to group with 100 others to kill a dragon then after 2 hours only 5 people get loot.
Q: What else?
A: It would be a classic persistent server with different end game objectives.
Q: Please give us some examples?
A: Possibility of home realm invasion, even so much so as capturing the enemy king and having his head as a trofie.
A: Additionally the idea of capturing a dev such as Carol/Beibhinn.
Q: Please give us a time frame for the new server?
A: Alpha/Beta testing will be open at the end of the summer (*In the United States that is September 22 2022) “people to hammer away at the content we created.” We will rely on player feedback.
Q: Old Frontiers or New Frontiers?
A: The community is divided between the two. OF is formally classic and nostalgic but had its issues. NF is mechanically an improvement to PVP.
Q: What are your thoughts on buff bots?
A: No Buff bots. Buffs will be 4000 units and in a group. Classic buff rules. This sounds to be open for discussion though.
Q: Thoughts on Ywain population drop when this new server comes out?
A: We hope to draw new people in with the new server and they may want to check in at Ywain as well.
Q: Eldariian asks Ramik, how can we improve Ywain?
A: More events like DF, Laby, 8v8 draft events.
Q: Are you fixing guards and pet pathing and related bugs currently found on Ywain?
A: We are actively working to fixing guard pathing/agro etc. Stealth issue after.
A: Pet pathing is complicated. Pet pathing is defined by a tool that runs to create the paths. As the physical landscape changes the paths get broken.
Q: What is the plans for Catacombs, it was changed?
A: Catacombs is not a priority, its not coming back any time soon. It will remain the way it is now.
Q: What are the plans with future Caledonia event? Changes?
A: Possibly a different map next time. But no dates.
Q: What is the relationship between EA and Mythic/Broadsword?
A: Mythic was independent 90s/2000. DAOC released at a perfect time with the format of 3 realms. EA acquired the game with the intention of letting Mythic continue to drive the game. Broadsword is its own company.
Q: Realm timers, will they be changed?
A: They change depending on the state of the game. Currently they are at an ok state but could be changed with some request. Continue the discussion.
Will there be updates on how to volunteer for the Beta testing of the Classic server content, for any potential bugs that may arise?
Opening of the server in BETA Planned today at what time please ?
is there any update on if this serve is releasing soon?
The classic server was put on the backburner earlier this year so the dev team could focus on Ywain per a post on the official discord by the producer. There is no ETA on whether it will resume development.
