Producer's Letter

Friends, players, realm-mates – lend me your eyes! What follows is an update on how Dark Age of Camelot is faring, and the updates you may expect, and it begins with communication.

Producer's Letter: 2018 and Beyond

Posted by John Thornhill | 2017 Dec 20 11:58 -0500 GMT

Another exciting year in Dark Age of Camelot is almost in the books and another, even more exciting year is about to begin! Even more exciting, you say? Unquestionably - but I can’t just spoil things right away, you’ll have to read through the letter to find out why!

There are three major development goals that we intend to accomplish over the next year.

  1. Make Realm vs Realm the best experience possible. This means returning RvR’s focus to the combat and realm war.
  2. Improve the returning player experience. Streamline and update the many avenues to getting a character back up to speed.
  3. Grow the game’s population. More marketing, community engagement, a continued focus on user experience (UX) updates, and new incentives to play.

Greetings all,

We're already a month and a half into what will be an exciting 2017! We've been busy discussing, planning, and working on what's coming this year as there are a LOT of things on our plate. In this letter, I'll be giving our take on where things stand currently, addressing much of your feedback from the past several months, and outlining the plans for this year!

Twelve Days of Midwinter

Posted by John Thornhill | 2016 Dec 21 06:02 -0500 GMT
The 21st of December is here which means that Midwinter is truly upon us. Celebrate the holiday spirit with our Twelve Days of Midwinter give-a-way event!

On the first day of Midwinter, Broadsword gave to me...

  • Login to the game and visit the following NPCs to receive a special reward each day!
    • Albion: Santa Nicholas in Camelot's church
    • Midgard: Kris Kringle in Jordheim's Assembly Hall
    • Hibernia: Daidi na Nollag in Tir na Nog's Alainn Cuir
  • Speak with the above NPCs to reveal your reward for each day.
    • Each day's reward will be revealed around 5:30 AM EST / 10:30 AM GMT and last the remainder of that day.
    • If you miss a day, you will be able to catch up and receive the missed rewards by visiting the NPC on subsequent days.
      • This means if you simply login on the twelfth day, you'll receive all 12 rewards!
        • Make sure you have room in your inventory!
  • These rewards are limited to level 50s and can only be obtained once per character.
    • All rewards will be tradable.
  • This event will run from today, December 21st, 2016 for the next twelve days, with the last day being January 1st, 2017!

Radar Suspensions

Posted by John Thornhill | 2015 Aug 20 17:09 -0400 GMT

We have recently instituted several methods to help us track down various hacks in-game, perhaps the most important of which is radar. We have not and will not ever take cheating lightly. Your feedback over the months about hacking has been well-received and this announcement can be considered proof that these types of actions will not be tolerated.

Today we have issued 1-day suspensions to several hundred accounts found to be using radar. Going forward, any accounts confirmed as violating the Rules of Conduct in this way will be subject to long-term suspension and permanent account termination. All accounts actioned today have been sent an email to the address on file.

If you receive this email, and you do not use these programs, check the name of the suspended account carefully before you panic. If you sold or traded your account to another player, it’s possible that they didn’t change the contact email information.

If you did not receive this email, but your account has been suspended, you should update the email address on the account ASAP.

If it’s your account, and you received the email, please uninstall your third party programs immediately.
