Yeah reasonably. Still needs work though, too many zone crashes.

Declined. while I've made some friends, I've also been put through the emotional wringer by some of them (no I'm not giving more details). Also I've wasted far too much of my time on the game.

lots of ppl who loved rvr left due to the fact rvr was the only thing that keep daoc going for them and pve is shit...
Sycho said:
4.What do you think is the best thing gained from ToA?
new abilitys witch make their classes fun to play, and stuff to make your char better in rvr..
Sycho said:
5.What do you think is the worse thing gained from ToA?
that the casual gamers lost so much from pre toa to toa rvr its to easy beating up untoaed causal grps, fun tho but its maybe even less fair now.
Sycho said:
6.If you could pick one class from each realm that you feel needs to be more groupable and boosted a bit what would you choose?
thane should be redone compleatly, its so utter crap :(
Sycho said:

Lightmentalist xDD

Sycho said:
9.Are you going to try new frontiers?
ofc, new patches should make the game more fun tho i gotta say that if ppl gonna do keep takes im afraid our grp is gonna get overloaded by other ppl and die just in numbers due to the report system and I think tanks are not gonna be that good if its (alot of keep takes)
Sycho said:
10.How do you feel about new frontiers ideas so far?
crap honestly, dont like the changes at all but its comming and you cant stop it, honestly im really worried about the power ra changes cus im playing a cleric and its really important to have them as cleric.
Sycho said:
11.Roughly how much longer will you play daoc?
I guess its gonna last another 6 months unless all the upcomming mmorpgs dont dissapoint me all.
Sycho said:
12.If you could meet three people in the game who would you choose?
gunz kalba and horsma (the finnish crew from excal) irl cus hes cool, dunno really its a game and the chars and irc personalitys are really different from irl i guess. :)
Sycho said:
13.If you quit daoc soon will you play another mmorpg?if so which?
Im really looking forward to darkfall witch is pure pvp and no levels still it does require you to kill heal and so on to get better at those skills you do, but this really seem to be the future game for me, and tho I dont like how wow is looking im really looking forward to get my hands on a beta to just try it out.
14.Are you pleased with prydwen server lately?
not playing on prydwen much but i did some runs in emain with my old guild m8s <jack herer> and noticed you have still loads of rvr fgs out in emain so i couldn't say it was that bad on prydwen.
Sycho said:
15.Finally if you could start again knowing what lied ahead, would you of played daoc or declined?
Tho my first char i exped took ages and i hated it and wanted out rvr I would do it again because rvr is really great in daoc if you enjoy it.

1.Do you enjoy playing daoc still?
Yeah.

2.What keeps you playing the game?
Silly drunken guildies for the main part :) Also because I don't get bored easily.

3.Now that ToA is here what do you think of it's impact?
Pretty big to say the least.

4.What do you think is the best thing gained from ToA?
Nice looking weapon and armour models.

Look > all.

5.What do you think is the worse thing gained from ToA?
In all honesty, I would say bodyguard, kinda defeats the whole thing about melee / caster advantages and drawbacks. This ain't the only bad thing though but I'd say it's the worst.

6.If you could pick one class from each realm that you feel needs to be more groupable and boosted a bit what would you choose?
Albion : Clerics. I think wizards need a good boost as well, but well, clerics are the backbone, and Albion severly lacks those.
Hibernia: Mentalists. Not totally gimp but pretty close.
Midgard: Bonedancers. In need of a brain upgrade.

7.How many lv50's do you have and how much do you enjoy each and why?
Just one and enjoying myself.

8.Which enemy class would you like to play in rvr if you had a choice from them all?
Not a big fan of alts, so none really, but if I was playing another realm I'd play :
Midgard : Most likely a SM
Hibernia : Either mana or ligth eldritch or enchanter. Probably enchanter due to speed & pet.

9.Are you going to try new frontiers?
Sure will.

10.How do you feel about new frontiers ideas so far?
Interesting, provided it's not exclusively big stand offs and that keep sieges don't give defenders an overwhelming advantage like it is atm.

11.Roughly how much longer will you play daoc?
Who knows such things :)

12.If you could meet three people in the game who would you choose?
Guildies I guess, never really be interested into seeing people I play online with IRL though.

14.Are you pleased with prydwen server lately?
Could be a lot worse, so yeah.

15.Finally if you could start again knowing what lied ahead, would you of played daoc or declined?
Declined, I had and still have my views on how PvP should be, from a MUDder perspective, and DAoC is lightyears away. Just a PvE combat system that smells of everquest vaguely tweaked for PvP.

AE CC is silly, interrupts are silly, buffs are retarded (and the mere fact there is buffbots even more), having character run at different speed is silly, damage dealt is insane, keeps are just flags on a hill that you have to defend from the outside (now *that* is crazy), and it's all a game of haves and have nots where individual 'skills' or experience or strategy, or whatever, have little impact on the outcome of most fights involving equal numbers. DAoC PvP is more about group setups with specific abilities, buffbots, realm abilities, master abilities and gear more than anything. People get used to it etc, but I can't help thinking it should be so much better.

Class balance is kinda lacking also, and Mythic made a big mistake balancing classes on utility/offense/defense instead of balancing on offense/defense then give every single class decent utility. Worst of all, they often break their own bad design (which is better than no design) and you get stupid things like instant spells that still interrupt even though they can't be interrupted kinda things, or a million little things I won't list here.

Still a good game, but smells of one that was only ever designed to grab some of the EQ market with no thought about PvP whatsoever. Was kinda disapointing for me as a long timer PvP MUD'er.

Sycho, answer your own survey btw :)

1.Do you enjoy playing daoc still?
Yes.

2.What keeps you playing the game?
Still enjoy the game for its PvE content and RvR content and ofcourse ive meet loads of nice people in game.

3.Now that ToA is here what do you think of it's impact?
Personally think its done more harm than good in regards to RvR, but the PvE side is still fun.

4.What do you think is the best thing gained from ToA?
Better items and the ability to truely make your character unique stats wise.

5.What do you think is the worse thing gained from ToA?
Some of the abilitys/items make a character too powerfull, making some even more overpowered than they used to be.

6.If you could pick one class from each realm that you feel needs to be more groupable and boosted a bit what would you choose?
Alb - Wizard not enough utility when compaired to other realms primary casters
Hib - Mentalist Very little they offer in regards to RvR combat.
Mid - Thane enough said tbh.

7.How many lv50's do you have and how much do you enjoy each and why?
Too many to list but of the 14 chars i only actively play 2-3 of them at most.

8.Which enemy class would you like to play in rvr if you had a choice from them all?
If i had a choice i`d like to try a high realm rank Healing class.

9.Are you going to try new frontiers?
Defo although i will probably stick to group class's only instead of playing my SB.

10.How do you feel about new frontiers ideas so far?
Great idea`s, but i think its too centred around ranged combat, which only casters are effective at, leaves tanks with little to do.

11.Roughly how much longer will you play daoc?
Depends on frontiers really.

12.If you could meet three people in the game who would you choose?
Depends on what i was meeting them for. Friendly chat or a fist fight ;p
Two people i`d love to meet though are Alessandra and Faile who i meet at release, they were both fantastic people and very friendly.

13.If you quit daoc soon will you play another mmorpg?if so which?
Will more than likely give WoW a try, but im not 100% yet on that.

14.Are you pleased with prydwen server lately?
Yes.

15.Finally if you could start again knowing what lied ahead, would you of played daoc or declined?
Nope i`d still have played, been a great experience and the people ive meet in game more than make up for the games crappy balance issue`s.

1.Do you enjoy playing daoc still?

No, not for a long time

2.What keeps you playing the game?

addiction? sheer boredom? no alternatives?

3.Now that ToA is here what do you think of it's impact?

Widened the gap for dedicated and less dedicated players even more, horrible

4.What do you think is the best thing gained from ToA?

some nice screenshots of scenery ?

5.What do you think is the worse thing gained from ToA?

everything, ml's , artifacts, the lot

6.If you could pick one class from each realm that you feel needs to be more groupable and boosted a bit what would you choose?

Thane, mentalist, friar(?)

2, i'm sick and tired of both of them, the savage only took a week to hate

druid, warden or eld

9.Are you going to try new frontiers?

Who knows, i hope there's a new and better game around then

10.How do you feel about new frontiers ideas so far?

The "good" places (cfr emain bowl) will still be very crowded and 80% will be desolate, just like it is now. The entire zerg-encouraging way mythic's going annoys me to fuck

11.Roughly how much longer will you play daoc?

I hope i have the power to stop as soon as possible

12.If you could meet three people in the game who would you choose?

tough, so tough since there's so many, but i'd guess Kephan, qwoz and Dook

no idea, i might go play yohoho puzzle pirates with ade!

14.Are you pleased with prydwen server lately?

no!

15.Finally if you could start again knowing what lied ahead, would you of played daoc or declined?

Do you enjoy playing daoc still?

sometimes yes

What keeps you playing the game?

Friends and my characters

Now that ToA is here what do you think of it's impact

Instead of stimulating teamplay it made the people selfish and the use of a buffbot is almost needed if you want to keep up (don't have one)

What do you think is the best thing gained from ToA?

Nice graphics to see

What do you think is the worse thing gained from ToA ?

Like I said before, its made for the hardcore players not for people with a real life

If you could pick one class from each realm that you feel needs to be more groupable and boosted a bit what would you choose?

midgard : spiritmaster
hibernia : animist
albion : not sure, has been a long since I played that one

How many lv50's do you have and how much do you enjoy each and why

3

healer : to play in group
thane : to be albe to start some firework
spiritmaster : to run around solo


Which enemy class would you like to play in rvr if you had a choice from them all

hibernia : enchanter
albion : sorcerer

Are you going to try new frontiers

yes

How do you feel about new frontiers ideas so far?

Keeps look great

Roughly how much longer will you play daoc

Till WOW comes out

If you could meet three people in the game who would you choose?

Met some already, guess hard to pick 3.

If you quit daoc soon will you play another mmorpg?if so which?

4.What do you think is the best thing gained from ToA?
soem more high end PvE

5.What do you think is the worse thing gained from ToA?

10.How do you feel about new frontiers ideas so far?
Looks good.

11.Roughly how much longer will you play daoc?

12.If you could meet three people in the game who would you choose?
Varuna- enjoy playing with him ingame
Kalthorine- would be..intresting..

Probally not..if yes probally guild wars since its one time payment so cheap..

Yes.

Sycho said:

Friendships, the fun and the fact that DAoC has a game aspect that I'd miss too much in another MMORPG; namely RvR.

Sycho said:

I think it has had a big impact. Savages are now more nasty that pre-nerf, for instance. Also the amount of time it takes for a player just to completely outfit and complete one character is very high. I like the content of ToA, I just do not appreciate the fact that it forces you away from having alts to a certain extent, and the big amounts of time it forces you to use after reaching lvl50.

Sycho said:
4.What do you think is the best thing gained from ToA?
More content, better graphics.

Sycho said:
5.What do you think is the worse thing gained from ToA?
That it isn't really optional if you want to compete.

6.If you could pick one class from each realm that you feel needs to be more groupable and boosted a bit what would you choose?
Albion: Wizard
Hibernia: Champions
Midgard: Berserkers or thanes

Sycho said:
7.How many lv50's do you have and how much do you enjoy each and why?
5.
Shaman: Love to play it, my absolute favourite class of all.
Berserker: Don't like to play it, I feel that it's inferior compared to savages.
Bonedancer: Don't like to play it, it's boring.
Spiritmaster: Like to play it, but I'd rather play my shaman.
Eldritch: Don't like to play it, as boring as BD.

Sycho said:
8.Which enemy class would you like to play in rvr if you had a choice from them all?
Sorcerer or spirit cabalist.

Sycho said:
9.Are you going to try new frontiers?
Yes.

Sycho said:
10.How do you feel about new frontiers ideas so far?
Some are good, some aren't. My main concern is that it will turn the game into a zerg vs. zerg focused solely around keep takes/defense.

Sycho said:
11.Roughly how much longer will you play daoc?
Until it stops being fun or another MMORPG has a greater appeal.

Sycho said:
12.If you could meet three people in the game who would you choose?
Xyliana, snoz and Muh.

Sycho said:
13.If you quit daoc soon will you play another mmorpg?if so which?
WoW, obviously, is very hyped and I'll definitely want to try it. Vanguard has potential, Middle Earth Online looks sweet. Those are the most close contestants to DAoC in my eyes.

14.Are you pleased with prydwen server lately?
No.

I would have played. :]

Hunter

1.Do you enjoy playing daoc still?

Yep

2.What keeps you playing the game?

Krissy, couple of RL friends who play/played and the few ingame friends that bother to stay friends

3.Now that ToA is here what do you think of it's impact?

Added something worthwhile doing in PvE for once.

4.What do you think is the best thing gained from ToA?

Few more months of pretty much enjoyable gameplay, nice items on chars

5.What do you think is the worse thing gained from ToA?

Furthermore increased selfishness of people (in general), stress it can place on people/guilds too.

6.If you could pick one class from each realm that you feel needs to be more groupable and boosted a bit what would you choose?

Alb - Friar, used to love grouping with them back in the day (hopefully sorted in NF)
Hib - Like majority have groupability problems? Oo I would guess some of less group-friendly specs void elds, mentalists, champions.
Mid - Thane, I guess, break more mez plz.

7.How many lv50's do you have and how much do you enjoy each and why?

Cleric - Enjoy in PvE and enjoy in keepy stuff rvr, never really got on with the 1fg gank stuff apart from mid-sotl-peak.
Paladin - PvE mostly, is strong tank, cant say I like it for its existence but more for its utility.
Infil - Kitting out in ToA gear atm, has been shelved for a while (yay?)
Air Theurg - rarely played.

8.Which enemy class would you like to play in rvr if you had a choice from them all?

Pure PBAE classes, spiritmaster/mana eld, I guess.

9.Are you going to try new frontiers?

Yes

10.How do you feel about new frontiers ideas so far?

Looks good, dont like the expensive RAs and the nerf to my power RAs tho. Byebye MCL2/RP :< (cleric without power = hi). Dont like passive TS. I also dont like the look of the god damn laggy keeps.

11.Roughly how much longer will you play daoc?

Until myself and Krissy mutually agree not to.

12.If you could meet three people in the game who would you choose?

Heh, theres a tough one.
Path, I wanna see how much a snob he really is. Marble floors and all that. And if he a big snob he can buy my beer !! :x
Minimez(Firemind) - He's been cool to us ingame since joining TLW, great bloke.
Loch, is she really female (and pretty?) *fluffle* OR Najwa to gaffer tape his hands inside his mouth.
(There are lots more friendly guildies who are great people ingame, fasti, soha, etc. and I'm sure people from GoA/GoP/SotL who I have forgotten)

13.If you quit daoc soon will you play another mmorpg?if so which?

No bandwagon MMOGs, please. At least DAoC LOOKED to have potential when it was announced, all these POS money grabbing MMOGs are a waste of space. If i quit daoc I would probably go back to FPS games for a bit until something worth playing was announced.

14.Are you pleased with prydwen server lately?

My feeling towards community (albion) and rvr community (this forum) hasnt changed since outset of me playing, really. I wouldnt say pleased, content I guess.

15.Finally if you could start again knowing what lied ahead, would you of played daoc or declined?

Played, definatly, but I'd have prefered my the original friends who I started game with to have stayed together for longer.

1.Do you enjoy playing daoc still?
From time to time, I still enjoy RvR, guild's finishing up with ToA so we've got a group out soon and all.

2.What keeps you playing the game?
The people playing it together with me.

3.Now that ToA is here what do you think of it's impact?
RvR got a bit trickier with it, bodyguarded casters and grapple in pbaoe and all sorts of stuff that makes you go boo hoo.

4.What do you think is the best thing gained from ToA?
It looks nice, I love funky gfx and the new UI's

5.What do you think is the worse thing gained from ToA?
All the time it takes to lvl and get artifacts.

6.If you could pick one class from each realm that you feel needs to be more groupable and boosted a bit what would you choose?
The hybrids, thanes/champs/reavers are often parked at the PK being the sad bastard people only want for PvE.

7.How many lv50's do you have and how much do you enjoy each and why?
1 Infiltrator - Boring, stealthwars got zergy and stuff long ago.
1 Minstrel - Funky class, the one I play as my main.
1 Reaver - I got a whip, prolly the most fun class I've played.

8.Which enemy class would you like to play in rvr if you had a choice from them all?
Skald

9.Are you going to try new frontiers?
Yeah, have to see new fx and see if how the new RA's are etc.

10.How do you feel about new frontiers ideas so far?
Hard to say, the RA system seems a bit fucked, but no use to QQ about it until it's here.

11.Roughly how much longer will you play daoc?
No idea, until all people I know quit? :p

12.If you could meet three people in the game who would you choose?
Arf, don't think I can choose just 3, so many fun/odd/crazy people..Artemis (old pervert), Camillo (mad german), Loch (sarcastic with humour), Dook (just seems nice), all the mad greeks, PE, the list goes on, guess I'll have to take a long roadtrip when I become a millionaire. ;o

13.If you quit daoc soon will you play another mmorpg?if so which?
Prolly will have to take a peek at WoW.

14.Are you pleased with prydwen server lately?
Not when RvR is zerged to hell.

15.Finally if you could start again knowing what lied ahead, would you of played daoc or declined?
I'd have tried to cut down on my playtime. :p

1. Yep, I do. Yesterday we had guild RvR after a long while with our old grp and it was really nice.

2. Reaching RR11 and ppl I play with.

3. Not that big as I thought first, but hibs are harder now and alb is harder to play.

4. ML raids are quite fun, if lead properly, much more damage and nice itams.

5. Good guys (like Tattersail) quitting game :(

6. Champ imo. :m00:

7. 2 lvl50s, merc and infeel.. Merc is very nice in a good grp and infil is cool too if 1vs1 fights, but when zerg it's just zzzz.

8. Mana Eld / Chanter, Warden or Healer

9. Yep.

10. Some good (like Det for hybrids), some suck (shit IP and nerfing NS's by removing AP)

11. As long as I enjoy it, I got nothing better to do or ppl leave it to another game.

12. Can't choose 3, because all guys from my guild are cool and most of our alliance as well.

13. Maybe, maybe not. Depends how many of my DAoC buddies go to a particular MMORPG or if there's one with good ideas.

14. Yah mostly, but now albs with str relics there's not that much mids imo than was before and albs coming outta their holes now. Anyway, I like the amount of hibs lately.

15. Ofc, I've met lotsa new ppl and experienced good 'vibes' while playing.

1.Do you enjoy playing daoc still?
Good deal of time and a lot.

2.What keeps you playing the game?
See #1

3.Now that ToA is here what do you think of it's impact?
It makes huge difference but the rvr impact is mostly good even if big, adds more diversity to the fights.

4.What do you think is the best thing gained from ToA?
Abilities and artifacts (as mentioned in #3)

5.What do you think is the worse thing gained from ToA?
Some artifacts and ML abilities are perhaps bit too powerful. Doors especially go down way too fast after ToA, and this makes RR's and keepraiding worse in my opinion. Hope frontiers addresses this.
Artifact exping can be dull sometimes/often, but usually it's okay. Just spent good part of day exping in nice company and got item to level 10. Had much fun in fact :)

6.If you could pick one class from each realm that you feel needs to be more groupable and boosted a bit what would you choose?
Maybe Thanes could use some new abilities or something. They're okay with their shields and spells but Warriors make better job at guarding so would need something to make up for it.

7.How many lv50's do you have and how much do you enjoy each and why?
Hmm.. Spiritmaster, Savage, Warrior, SB, Skald.. I enjoy all of them when I play them but usually I play my SM and use savage/warrior/skald for PvE stuff when I need them. I'd like to play them more but I don't have the time I'd want to invest in the characters so I end up playing my SM like always.

8.Which enemy class would you like to play in rvr if you had a choice from them all?
Some caster might be nice to try.. Sorcerer, Theurgist or Eldrith maybe.

9.Are you going to try new frontiers?
You bet! I can't wait.

10.How do you feel about new frontiers ideas so far?
They seem very nice, I'm addicted to keep warfare :)
The new realm ability system looks nice too, much much more choices and RA's to go for. Big choices ahead when it comes, too.

11.Roughly how much longer will you play daoc?
No idea.. Haven't got bored yet and enjoy it loads. New Frontiers will probably keep me entertained for long, long time.

12.If you could meet three people in the game who would you choose?
Dunno really.. Would be nice meeting basically anyone who I know in game, since I never have :)

13.If you quit daoc soon will you play another mmorpg?if so which?
None of the new mmorpg's look very promising.

14.Are you pleased with prydwen server lately?
RvR wise the situation is bit weird lately.. Mostly HW and Odin's - where I usually rvr at - are empty and when there's someone there, it's a gank group of some kind. It used to be different, gank groups went emain to play rvr they like, and others came to HW and Odin's.

15.Finally if you could start again knowing what lied ahead, would you of played daoc or declined?
For sure.


16. There makes a change from whines, be nice to hear from each other

Yeah :)


PS. I always get too many images in long posts pfff.. This board is continuously preventing me from expressing myself with as many smileys as I'd like! We got freedom of speech, what about freedom to smile!

1.Do you enjoy playing daoc still?

Yes most of the time

2.What keeps you playing the game?

Jenkz mostly but have made friends that I enjoy playing with.

3.Now that ToA is here what do you think of it's impact?

I think its inpact was just another attempt at making things easier so mythic can rebalance the game again as they please.

4.What do you think is the best thing gained from ToA?

Casters can actualy kill things without assisting debuff casters.

5.What do you think is the worse thing gained from ToA?

Tanks being able to drop everything much faster when they get in melee range, + alot of selfish ppl that dont give anything back after taking.

6.If you could pick one class from each realm that you feel needs to be more groupable and boosted a bit what would you choose?

Wizard
Mentalist
Thane

7.How many lv50's do you have and how much do you enjoy each and why?

erm... gotta remember teh list now

Krissy (Air Theurgist) - My main since release, always been this spec and have always loved it, perfect mix of damage and utility.
Froster (Ice Wizard) - I enjoy this char in keeps as well as in Erods old PBAE groups, and helps alot in ToA farming atm.
Ninetails (50 Shield Reaver) - Great to duo with pallys as well as fun to play as a tank and not a 1hit dead class.
Pied (Stealth Minstrel) - Not played so much atm, mainly due to to much to sort templates for already so not got the time to sort it, thou loved it in duo stealth RvR.
Conc (Cleric) - Mainly lvled to take preasure off Jenkz to be cleric in our duo PvE, retired it since to perm housing zone char, rarly loged on and never played.
Kristofer (47 PBT-BOT) - Lvled for SotL PvE raids, helpful char that has a good pbt and can contribute more than my Air Theurgist.

8.Which enemy class would you like to play in rvr if you had a choice from them all?

Melee Ranger - Mainly because ive always wanted an archer and in Frontiers rangers melee owns silly so ive heard and would like an overpowered class for once.

9.Are you going to try new frontiers?

Yes.

10.How do you feel about new frontiers ideas so far?

I think the upgrades to RvR are a good idea mostly, apart from no APK etc to port to, Thou saying that ive got lvl 10 Alvarus' Leggings so can shark form and swim wherever (wants to play Jaws).

11.Roughly how much longer will you play daoc?

No idea, till Jenkz quits and I get bored being alone ingame.

12.If you could meet three people in the game who would you choose?

Jenkz (Obviously wanna see my boyfriend more)
Krissy (still need him to explain to me who he is, confuses me alot of the time)
Minimez (Found him to be great fun to play with as well as his own opinions which most mmorpg players dont seem to have)


13.If you quit daoc soon will you play another mmorpg?if so which?

Not seen any mmorpg that can offer anything as good as daoc atm, and I rarly beleive the hype thats always started from one leet person and his bandwaggen promote it to be fotm themselfs. When I see something thats not just flashy gfx etc then ill consder it.

14.Are you pleased with prydwen server lately?

More so since mids lost the relics, hibs have came out to play alot more as well as albion finaly seems to have some standard leaders other than the newbies that have been around since day one of release and still cant lead properly.

15.Finally if you could start again knowing what lied ahead, would you of played daoc or declined?

Yes, thou id of speced earth and respeced at 40 + lvled a bb to begin with and a necro on the same account for alt powerlvl, ah, and not bothered with my cleric (such a waste of time)

Yes

2.What keeps you playing the game?

No idea, I guess the power of christ compels me to play daoc.

3.Now that ToA is here what do you think of it's impact?

Silly, some of the new abilities are so op'd

4.What do you think is the best thing gained from ToA?

Can't think of anything that stands out, ToA is just SI + some uber items

5.What do you think is the worse thing gained from ToA?

Grapple

6.If you could pick one class from each realm that you feel needs to be more groupable and boosted a bit what would you choose?

Alb - Necro
Hib - Dont know
Mid - None


7.How many lv50's do you have and how much do you enjoy each and why?

I have 5 lv 50's, and enjoy my Infiltrator and sorc to the same level, they're best class' to play tbh. Sorc = challenge, Inf = just for fun ownage :)

8.Which enemy class would you like to play in rvr if you had a choice from them all?

Enchanter

9.Are you going to try new frontiers?

Yes

10.How do you feel about new frontiers ideas so far?

They're ok, good keep infrastructure changes, Frontier layout changes may provide less densely populated areas (amgE atm) so zergs / gankage might not be so bad. RA system changes are ok, not really looked at it but removing Dodger = ;/ for NS tbh less chance for that evade stun thing, same for sb's i guess, to a lesser extent, inf's DF also. so kinda works out in the end.

11.Roughly how much longer will you play daoc?

Probs till WoW, wether thats b4 Frontiers or not??

12.If you could meet three people in the game who would you choose?

Dont know really, so many ppl, I couldn't pick 3, wouldn't be fair on others.

13.If you quit daoc soon will you play another mmorpg?if so which?

Like Q11, WoW.

14.Are you pleased with prydwen server lately?

Nah, too much bitching lag and zergs :p hang on, its always been like that.

15.Finally if you could start again knowing what lied ahead, would you of played daoc or declined?

LoL, woulda got a life a long time ago. but maybe played on and off.

8.when i was an alb, i wouldve said a zerker but now as a hib, i would love to play a buffed paladin :)

13. id lvoe to get my old everquest account that got hacked back. but thats not gonna happen

14. 50/50, zregs make it less fun and sometimes it rocks

15. i sometimes feel that DAoC is my only obstacle to a bright future, but its the best entertainment one could ask for while at home :)

1.Do you enjoy playing daoc still?

Sometimes. Leveling artifacts on 3 chars is a huge pain though

2.What keeps you playing the game?

Friends i have made

3.Now that ToA is here what do you think of it's impact?

I felt daoc kinda needed something like this to keep things fresh. Still undecided of its impact as i haven't rvr'd regularly.

4.What do you think is the best thing gained from ToA?

New abilites and toys to play with

5.What do you think is the worse thing gained from ToA?

Grapple, huge time demand of leveling artifacts (and MLs to a certain extent)

6.If you could pick one class from each realm that you feel needs to be more groupable and boosted a bit what would you choose?

Alb: Friar (Wizard and necro also need a little help imo)
Mid: Thane
Hib: Mentalists (not that experienced with the class but i assume theirs a reason for the general lack of them)

7.How many lv50's do you have and how much do you enjoy each and why?

Ice wiz - Used to be my main, i just kinda feel im wasting my time though when i look at other pbaoe classes. Still enjoy it but will see how it perfoms when fully toa'd :)

Theurg - Absolutely love this class, just wish i could play it more.

Sorc - Again, great class though im still getting used to it.

8.Which enemy class would you like to play in rvr if you had a choice from them all?

Mana eld, its what my wizzie should be :)

9.Are you going to try new frontiers?

Most likely

10.How do you feel about new frontiers ideas so far?

I reckon it looks really great. Most likely it will be a few patches after before its balanced though :) Also, i hppe they redo the gfx engine a bit so it can handle the larger scale battles which mythic seems to be encouraging.

11.Roughly how much longer will you play daoc?

Dunno really

12.If you could meet three people in the game who would you choose?

I couldn't pick 3 really, lots of peeps i would love to meet.

13.If you quit daoc soon will you play another mmorpg?if so which?

Not sure i would want another time sink after daoc.

14.Are you pleased with prydwen server lately?
Its coming good again, i just wish the damn servers would stop crashing.

15.Finally if you could start again knowing what lied ahead, would you of played daoc or declined?

Played daoc, ive met so many nice peeps :)

Nice thread btw, makes a change from the general negativity found here.

Oddly enoughy my SB.

3.Now that ToA is here what do you think of it's impact?
Bloody stupid. "ToA won't effect RvR"
