Sep 30, 2014 - 9:39 AM - by beibhinn
Friends and Realm mates,

In celebration of our 13th Year Anniversary, the Dark Age of Camelot team is pleased to announce our first-ever King's Tournament!

Sponsored by King Constantine of Albion, King Eirik of Midgard, and King Lamfhota of Hibernia, winners of the tournament will win their very own statue in-game, stylized after their character and placed in their realm's capital city!

The Kings are looking for champions to inspire their realm to even greater glory! Will you be one of them!?

Interested? Find out more HERE!

Picking Up The Torch

Sep 28, 2014 - 12:40 PM - by beibhinn
Greetings friends,

I couldn't be more excited about the future of Dark Age of Camelot! Talal has been a great ambassador of the game and a visionary leader. I only hope to partly fill his shoes and carry on the torch he has made so bright.

For those that don't know, I've been the Lead Designer on the team for quite some time now and am intimately familiar with our current and future plans. Speaking of those plans, I'd like to outline the next patch cycle for you as well as the general focus and resources of the team for the foreseeable future.

Click the 'More' Link to continue!


October 13th Anniversary Month
We will be doing some exciting things for Camelot's 13th birthday:

  • A marketing campaign and Come Back to Camelot promotion to attract new and veteran players back to the game
  • New Race and Class pairings
  • A 13th Anniversary Housing Trophy
  • A surprise, never-before-done event with never-before-seen rewards

I'd love to spill the beans today, but the details of the surprise - and everything else will have to wait until next week!

Passing The Torch

Sep 28, 2014 - 12:35 PM - by beibhinn
Friends and Realm mates,

It’s a time of great change for Dark Age of Camelot. This era of new beginnings started with the transition of DAoC from Mythic to Broadsword. We saw more change when we, as Broadsword, invested time and energy into revitalizing Camelot, developing interesting new content, and adding new and updated elements to the game with the goal of reminding the world that there was never - and will never - be a finer PvP MMO than Dark Age of Camelot. The evolution continues!

Those familiar with the team here at Broadsword are aware that our passion and dedication to our games is boundless. We created this studio with very basic ingredients: Experience, love for our products, and the willingness to do whatever it takes to serve our games and their communities. This leads me to the update that I have for you today.

Over the past few months, I have been transitioning my responsibilities here at Broadsword. Rather than serving at the helm of one particular game, my responsibility will be to act as advocate and to use my time and energy to focus on how Broadsword can have a bigger impact, provide more investment, and achieve greater success for multiple products.

So what does this mean for Camelot? The answer is “great things!” I will never cease to provide my energy and attention to Camelot’s success – I will simply be doing it from a different and exciting perspective. I announce this change with great confidence and with the deep relief of knowing that my colleague, fellow die-hard Camelot fan, and very dear friend John Thornhill will assume ownership of the day-to-day operations as Producer of Dark Age of Camelot.

Official announcements, press relations, and operation of the game going forward will be handled by John Thornhill. For his dedication to the product, his tireless work, acute vision, and for his new position – I know you will all join me in thanking and congratulating him!

John, my old friend - thank you for your years of faithful work as a fellow vision-holder, and congratulations on the next step in your journey with Dark Age of Camelot!

For my part - you the community, as well as the game itself will, as ever, have my love and support – and I will never stop serving and fighting for Dark Age of Camelot as long as there’s a single player out there.

I’ll be around – lurking and checking in, helping when and where I can, and fighting alongside you in the maelstrom of war.

Faithfully yours,

Talal Saad
“Eldariian”

Hot Fix - Keep LoS Issues #2

Sep 23, 2014 - 10:00 AM - by beibhinn
Greetings!


  • The Line of Sight and pet pathing around Caer Berkstead, Nottmoor Faste, and Dun Crimthainn should be much improved now. This means those pesky "cannot see target" messages should not be seen as much when attacking enemies or healing realmmates when inside these keeps!

Players should see these changes immediately without needing to re-patch or relog.

Hot Fix - Keep LoS Issues

Sep 22, 2014 - 1:00 PM - by beibhinn
Here are your piping-hot Hot Fix notes:


  • Line of Sight inside the Ruined Keeps should be much improved. This means those pesky "cannot see target" messages should not be seen as much when attacking enemies or healing realmmates when inside these keeps!
  • Some collision adjustments have been made to lower tier Keep models.
  • (Gaheris Only) Caer Benowyc, Bledmeer Faste, and Dun Crauchon are now in a Ruined Keep state on the Gaheris server. This means these keeps have perpetually-open outer and inner gates. The encounters on these keeps remain unchanged.

NOTE: With this fix, in order to login, players will need to run the patcher once to get the change; otherwise, an error will be seen when loading the game client.
