Advice Make Massively Editor play Daoc

    Justin Olivetti over on Massively is asking you to dictate what game he plays! With a list of 12 options, Justin is asking you to "Choose My Adventure."

    Take control of Justin's life and suck him into DAoC with your vote...he'll never want to leave [​IMG]

    It's a scary thought, putting the fate of my gaming time into your hands, but so be it. Life is about getting out of your comfort zones, then realizing why those zones were so comfortable in the first place and racing right back to them. But before I reclaim my own destiny, I must navigate this dark valley of capricious voters.

    I guess it's tradition to kick off a new series by giving y'all the chance to pick my new game of choice, and so until Sunday, you can attempt to dictate to me which title you'd like to see in the spotlight for the next couple of months. I thought long and hard about what games I was OK with trying and ended up with a list that fell into one of three categories: the old-school, the modern F2P wave, and the promising Asian imports. Read on to see the possible paths for my future, and choose wisely -- I'm counting on you!

    The old-school

    Are you interested in seeing a blast from the past get a few weeks of fame and glory here on Massively? Are you constantly telling your friends just how awesome these games were -- and still are -- and yet nobody listens to you? Or would you simply like to see a gamer from 2012 attempt to tackle content from the Stone Age of MMOs?

    If so, you can take a shot at Dark Age of Camelot (2001), Anarchy Online (2001), or Asheron's Call (1999)


    Get on over to Justin's column on Massively and vote for DAoC!

    Good idea. Come on people, it's a two-horser between DAoC and Anarcy Online (at the time of writing).

    It's either closed or I'm too stupid to figure out how to vote.

    Tbh I think he writes like a spoilt american kid who's been playing WOW for too long, and has no idea what to do if it's anything out of that scope. Now I know daoc is far from perfect, but 1 of the good things about it is that it isn't a WOW clone unlike 90% of the other MMO's - partly because it was out before WOW.

    Agreed.. he like most, want a game fed to them with ease.

    Daoc might not be the best MMO out there but if you don't know what you have targeted unless they light up and have ten arrows pointing at them then please go back to the failure that is WAR.

    And staying a week in the lions den? Doesn't he talk to other players at all? If he did he would k ow that thidranki would be the place to go for low level rvr. I hope he gets to lvl24 and he gets to see it.

    Him and his kind is whats wrong with gaming thes days. "I have to think all by myself? What a shit game!"

    What an utter shitcunt. People like him are the reason that no good multiplayer games get released anymore.

    Agreed, kids need to be spoon-fed.

    I remember printing maps for DAoC because there wasn't any in game, and most of those were woefully inaccurate.. but by fuck it made it more fun!

    When I bought my daoc box with SI I got all the maps on nice shiny paper along with it. Needsless to say my irl friends who also played daoc at the time were green with envy. Still have all of my boxes and all the old maps

    We had them all printed out, staples together and arranged so that each zone corresponded and led on from one another. Even a few had markings on with lines drawn of where to go for Pygmies, or where I found a good camp that wasn't on map.

    Thems were the days... brings me on to quests that went to the middle of nowhere and it was guess work. Remember alot of the early SI ones being totally confusing, doing Arawn for the first time for example.

    You know what I had to do to learn about DAoC? Talk to people, socialise, make friends. I still play games with a lot of the people I knew from DAoC to this day, people from PE in 2001 and so on. Of the people I've met and played with in subsequent MMOs, there's literally two people who remain close friends. Having everything spoonfed just kills online gaming. It's so, so sad the state that MMOs are in now. I know it's very easy to look with rose-coloured glasses at a game like DAoC, but nothing will ever come close to replacing it and I'm not ashamed to say it makes me really sad to come to that realisation.

    I was the same. I used to play with my bro at the time, and we had them printed out and put on the wall behind the computer.
    It was what made the game fun imo.. not having any maps, you having to explore .. and I don't remember any rush to level 50 ..
    nowdays, its all about the highest level, who does this first etc .. but in daoc, people made new characters for fun, and therefore it took months for people to get the top level. Infact, I had so many characters, it took 6 months :D
    Theres too many websites with item lists and so forth, too many guides on what to do, too many pre build websites etc

    You can't blame him for not being used to play a decade old text based MMO. :)

    He's used to modern MMO's and if you want to fling dirt at anyone because of that, fling it at the devs making those modern MMO's. :)

    Allakazam was my mecca.. seeing those early pics of diamondback toad and ellyls glowies were thing of godlike. Getting the Cabalist staff (Staff of the Creator? Dropped off a big named in Forest near Drag) from Dartmoor on my first attempt was one of my highlights, beasted up OF with a matter cab on that. I was the opposite as I chose one thing and stuck with it till it was 50.. hence my extremely low amount of lvl 50 characters, even on excal I only had 4 after years on there hah.

    I had that box version as well! Remember looking at the maps all the time, trying to figure out where the hell I was and where to go :)
