Camelot Unchained alpha test ‘a huge success’

    
71

“Alpha was, quite frankly and with as little hype as possible, a huge success.”

Mark Jacobs used the above to lead into a debriefing of Camelot Unchained’s first technical alpha test. The test ran for a continuous 72 hours after a start delay. He reported that the game handled 1,100 players and bots without a problem and did not crash during the entire test.

Jacobs is pleased to see the creativity that fans are demonstrating with the new offline building program. He also said that the team is slated to get additional programming support and that future stretch goals will come with extra rewards for all backers.

As a Babylon 5 fan would say – CU is our last, best hope for a revived mmorpg genre!

I hope to measure the success of CSE’s plan for a long term game in terms of years of play not the 6 months we’ve come to expect of resent releases…

I’m not even the sort of rabid PVPer that would really get into this game but I’m still considering backing it because of the track record of the team involved with the legendary DAOC. I know a lot of people who hav really fond memories of that game, even if I never played it myself.

‘Course, I have next to no expendable income atm, so it may be a while before I can afford that lifetime sub. xD

I am glad for their team.  As an old time DAoC beta tester and player, I’m looking forward to what Mark has for us this time around.

Mark Jacobs Liandreth Enjoy our state, the great food and the beer.  Unfortunately if you are coming to the west side we have ushered in stereotypical PNW weather, cloudy and rainy for a week.

Sorenthaz Oh, I’m sure we/they/gremlins are going to break stuff all the time. It’s going to happen, tears will be shed, laughter and mocking will be heard. In other words, SNAFU. :) And then we will fix things, sunshine will emerge, until the next time….

Rinse, wash and repeat. :)
