Will they replace the current ones? (I guess so)
I heard someone say they will all be linked together, do that mean no more porting? or w00t?

Well they say its an optional addon so if u install it , it will proberly replace the old ones. I have also heard that everything will be linked together and that u travel in boats to the different zones or something like that ..

it seems that one of mythics main points in the design was travel time, so I think that will be sort of safe. No idea though how they will make it work though :(

I'm not sure how that would work either. In fact it would be practically impossible to have the old and the new frontiers running at the same time, so at this point I very much doubt that this expansion will be optional.

i wannul try a boat, imo best thing about it will be that mids/albs gotta run same kinda length to emain every time they dies as us hibs do. Might even cut down on the alb zergs a bit if the boats are like 16 seater or something.

Actually afaik the expansion is free but not optional. If my memory serves me right I think they once upon a time claimed it to be optional. However that might have just been a typo, or they weren't expecting Frontiers expansion to be this much of a change.

I have now got the impression though that this expansion is not optional, and your login client will probably make a forced download just as any other patch ;)

I must say though I am a little afraid of what is going to happen to soloers.
I've always enjoyed HWs due to the lack of infils (and NS zergs) and small encounters. Now I fail to see what would stop Zoy/Outlaw from running their massively oversized zergs through all frontiers.

Will Frontiers mean the end to soloers?

The new frontiers will have loads of nice tactical positions that you can use.
Many small valleys towers ......

And finaly albs and mids also need to run to the action and that means that they finaly can get ganked when running there like we hibbies do when running to emain atm

I think the new frontiers will benefit the archer class greatly with the bottlenecks and with some of the 1-way terrain.

Many archers means assassins lurking around...

So it'll not be bad...

Mythic really plans to make the frontier nice for all... so i'm confident.

Yep as far as I can see on the maps, there are more options for stealthers / small groups to stay out of the highway.

And more places to camp to ambush people, will be less boring than "the ambush is at AMG" thing. Most fun I had was when BF / FC used to set ambushes on the road to Emain as they tried different spots (NP are just always near Bolg, so no surprise there). Now people that ain't lucky enough to be hibs will be able to share that fun too. As you'll see it also cures lazy gits from going afk as soon as they're stuck to a bard (replace by skald/mincer) and the train started to Emain.

Well, I certainly won't be missing Emain :) I think I know every square meter of it (having personally examined it from ground level several times)

Actually I'm afraid I won't be missing anything in DaoC already before RvR extension comes out, but if not, new frontier will be welcome :clap:

I do like the fact that those frontiers are one whole. I'm just worried about the lag aspects of it all :(
I guess time will tell :)

Last thing I read about it, is that Mythic is looking to make some kind of ports available to friendly keeps. To me it sounds more than dubious, but I guess it won't work if the keep is under attack.

The changes to the relic keeps sounds like fun. Specially as they have moved the rvr frontier dungeons also to behind the MG walls. So there will be 4 ways for the relic carrier to escape.
Regards, Glottis

It'll be a crap mishmash of aggro mob camps, unscalable cliffs, mach6 purple guard patrols etc.

That's what I like - a nice positive attitude to change ;)

I have read somewhere - trying to find it again on some US boards - about the Buffbot issue that 1 possible solution is to put a range on the buffs - so if your too far from caster there effectiveness will fall off - will post the discussion when I find it :) :eek2:

There is some talk of turning the old frontier zones into home realm zones.

In this case Frontiers could I suppose be made optional, but if don't opt to take it you wouldn't be able to rvr outside the BGs. So it would in practice be optional when you download it rather than if.

No recent quote suggests it will be optional; however, Mythic were trying to see if it could be optional a while back - which is where the optional thing comes up in forum conversations.

If they do turn the old frontier into home realm zones - it would have the added bonus of giving rvr servers access to the Gaheris pve epic keep take encounters.
