That's a shame. Probably the best freeshard i've played on, on any game. Trouble is, at the end of the day it's still DAoC, and it's old and tired.
Albion: 55 Midgard: 34 Hibernia: 30
Sad to see. If John Thornhill had an ounce of common sense he'd capitalize on this and get that classic server out they keep dangling in front of people.
I really don't think it'd actually work at this point tbh, especially if it's going to be sub based.
What I don't understand is how Broadsword is running anything at all, considering how much money they're not making.
On Saturday, July 24, 2021, the long-running and highly popular Dark Age of Camelot freeshard Phoenix was announced to be closing by the end of August. In a Phoenix forum post titled "The Sky Is Really Falling This Time", gruenesschaf, one of the creators behind the freeshard, explained the...www.mmorpg.com
Personally, I hated Uthgard. I just don't think such a slow levelling process was necessary, we have all done it before.
I saw this on my phone feed.
It's pretty sad that Uthgard didn't get this type of recognition when it was clearly the superior server.
Hard and respectfully hard disagree. Phoenix was super fun because of all the in-touch-QoL, events and constant updates. Uthgard is a museum you visit for 30 minutes every 2-3 years to get your nostalgia check, painfully level from 1 to 3 and logoff.
There are two new servers that people are working on that seem quite popular, Atlas (Classic/SI) and Era (Classic/SI/TOA in some form, possibly some other bits)
Broadsword throw out the odd lie about themselves working on one too, but clearly bollocks to keep people interested.
Broadsword are a joke, the balance patch all those years ago was the final nail in the coffin, surprise theyve dragged it out this long.
Era sounds interesting, wonder why Phoenix closed the doors, seemed lively.
Ohh nice nice.
