Agreed, i'd be more then happy playing that and would re-sub. :england:
If warhammer flops (a big IF, I doubt it very much) I am also going to roll on the origins server.
And agree with everybody else here; ToA killed DAoC, totally and utterly devastating.
I was semi-hardcore player, but did not have a hardcore guild...
Never got any character ToA'd
Never even got any character ML'ed (never seen the high ML areas except on Freeshards and videos)
I ended up being in a situation in which quitting seemed the only option, and I love DAoC... then I found myself doing something I had always frowned upon and hated that others did.. I bought a ToA'd ML10 char of Ebay. Basicly it was that or quitting the game at that point.
Don't get me wrong, ToA didn't ruin the game completely; Once I was on a ToA'd character, RvR was totally fun again.
Just a shame one had to go buy a character of Ebay to enjoy a game, specially seeing how I wasn't even casual about it, I played 5-6 hours a day every day of the week, still, ToA was not doable for me.
guess you lot keep forgetting x mg camping , stealther groups running on stick near mgs and choke points, OP "event weapons" that wouldn't disappear after event and dude would come forward 6 months later and 2-shot everything in rvr zone, etc, etc, etc.
believe it or not, game evolved with toa cata etc, still, as hard as it were with toa items and stuff, still people kept on playing afterwards, and im not talking about randoms here, talking about average+ players
saying that you could start playing from scratch in a bling-blingless server might actually prove a good idea, but remember one thing, game for dyvet players wasn't ruined by expansions, but by the community that went from bad to worse in a very short time.
ps : wasnt glastonbury and the rest of classic servers blingblingless also? remember what happened to them
edit : what happened to my old rank?
I didnt say they didnt have forums, they just didnt have the hate-filled forum that was FH not so long
Have you read some of those VN threads??? They may not have gone in for 'my playstyle is right & yours is wrong' threads but they made up for it in some many other ways. The majority of FH posters seem to be intelligent, sane & rational compared to reading stuff on there.
That said - bring back BarrysWhine!!
intelligent arguments vs zerobrainers like CM didnt actually help, did it?
intelligent people left dyvet etc, whereas its beavis vs butthead on VNboards, 0 iq arguments and so on, they dont have any other choise than playing daoc xD
