Dark Age of Camelot developers are looking to clean up unused games and general balance

It sucks when you have a great idea for a character, but all of the names you’d like to use have been taken. That’s a problem particularly affecting Dark Age of Camelot at this point, but the developers confirm in the latest community Q&A that the team is definitely considering freeing up unused names on unplayed or particularly old characters. The staff is also holding off on another Come Back to Camelot campaign until more balance concerns have been addressed, with a potential new rulest server in the works to give player population a shot in the arm.

The developers also addressed some mechanical questions, laying out the soft and hard caps for various stats and pointing out that many understood soft caps really do allow for more variation. There are also more hidden skills for some dual wielding lines, although those hidden skills shouldn’t substantially alter damage dealt. Check out all of the answers for the full rundown.

Anyone interested in this article should give Uthgard a shot. Classic DAoC and a peak population of over 3,000.

As a former DAOC player, I’m very interested in this potential “alternative ” ruleset server. Depending on what it is, I might come back for that.

As the kids say: “DAoC 2 or STFU.”

I’m a Day 1 backer of CU, but it’s disingenuous to consider it DAoC 2, since it has almost 0 PvE.

FIRST!

Also, pretty sure it’s unused names, not unused games :P

Not surprising though they do this.

Yeah… if it was unused games, they would have to clean up Daoc itself :P
