Camelot Unchained newsletter discusses combat philosophy and developer status

    
35
Well, good hustle.

The Camelot Unchained test phases had to be delayed, and that means that the latest newsletter for the game is in an odd place, as the opening itself states. On the one hand, the team has accomplished a lot since the last community newsletter; on the other hand, obviously that wasn’t quite enough. But there’s still plenty of talk about what the developers have been doing and what progress is being made, along with a lengthy dissertation of the game’s combat design philosophy.

Camelot Unchained‘s combat model is being called “counter-revolutionary” in the newsletter itself, as it’s an intentional throwback to the earlier days of MMO combat that then extrapolates in a different direction. Expect less twitch reflex and more emphasis on making strategic decisions, something that becomes very relevant when aiming for specific body parts and armor types. Read all of the details (and a great deal more) in the newsletter itself.

ZenDadaist Mark Jacobs DonnieT Depends on how many we conceptualize. The plan has been to create a ton of race concepts and allow the Backers to vote on some of them. While some races are core IP races, I would love to be able to throw a lot more races at our Backers for their feedback.

Mark Jacobs DonnieT You mean not all of the races are going to make the final cut?  D: Or is it more a case of ‘which ones to focus on for the launch, with the others coming in at a later point’?

Great progress all and all, the expectation of less (not no) twitch combat has me very excited.

DahkohtLewin A lot of people who didn’t want to use their main email for their gaming account set up a separate email / account just for that purpose.

How about SLI or an SLI profile ? I’m guessing if nvidia is working with you all some that SLI should work ?
