Played DAoC at launch and up to the Trials of Atlantis expansion. ToA killed the game for me. To bad. It was a mistake that Mr. Jacobs eventually owned up to, but far to late to do anything about it. DAoC was a great game for those first few years, but it had drifted ever closer to WoW clone status as time went by.

Camelot Unchained is one of the few games I donated to as I am hoping Mr. Jacobs can build on the lessons learned in DAoC. :)

I had already been married for 12 years when it launched. How’s that for old? ;)

Won’t even touch DAoC without Mark Jacobs being involved, but will go down as my favorite MMO ever.

Interesting, this game is subbased. Quite peculiar considering most mmos go f2p.

It’s a small team and F2P conversion takes a lot of time and resources. Also, Free to play was announced in their Dec 2017 producer’s letter with Endless Conquest accounts (F2P accounts with limitations), originally slated for this year, but has already been pushed back to 2019.

That’s fine. It will be 18 years old instead of 17 when its F2P launches; not a huge deal. ;)

The risk is that their currently subscribing player might jump down to F2P without making up for it in the store, especially if it’s not overly restrictive.
I’m unsure how many would actually join up because of the F2P, especially if it’s overly restrictive.

It’s a risk either way.

Yeah, I sort of agree. Is the sub still $15? I mean I feel like they could drop it to $10 and still get the best of both worlds.

Broadsword is a feel-good story in the MMO landscape of depression.

Actually, that’s a great idea! I wonder if they still have the original code.
