    I'm so looking forward to this game. Did you mean to post it under crowfall?

    I had hope at one time for Camelot Unchained ... but the funding fell through and the game went through so many iterations that I lost interest. In that video intro that was just posted, the graphics and animations are just horrible imo ... something would have to change dramatically for it to gain any traction in a crowded genre right now.

    Camelot Unchained has a massive cult following. It's not something I'm really interested in playing but those who have been waiting for it since Dark Age of Camelot will be in nerd heaven. I think it will fill a very specific niche and will have a very loyal player base. I don't think it will cater to the younger MMO generation, but instead attract a lot of die hard oldies from the late 90's MMO generation. Camelot Unchained is what EQN was for me. My dreams were shattered; I hope Camelot Unchained can do for it's player base what EQN has failed to do for the most part.

    The spell crafting sounds promising. Sadly, I don't know that I could attack an RvR game the way I'd want to anymore. Hope it succeeds for the diehards though.

    I absolutely loved DAoC and am willing to give this some leeway till they finish. While I played many mmos before, daoc was my first true love lol

    My favorite memory is breaking down the door and running in on my ice Mage to where there was a group of 8 enemies standing on top of the keep lord and pbaoe'ing them all and seeing the realm death spam with my name as the killer lol

    I have seen the game. Not overly hyped about the game, but will probably give a far go when released. Who knows. Maybe good.

    Edit: the animation and such look as crappy as darkfall when it came out. hopefully they fix it up a little.

    I too, am looking forward to this game. I've played his games before and they are great fun PvP-wise. If he pulls his vision off exactly as he wants it, expect a very dynamic, easy to play game.

    The engine is more-less built (and showing insane large scale battles stability), it's time for making the game look good. Beta should start in a week or two, and NDA goes off shortly after that...I hope!?

    Say, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and so on - and this is just the beginning. Some of these are months old or just first iterations/passes of new models, textures or light.

    I just read the latest update. The game is looking good (in pictures) and it seems like they are optimistic. I feel beta may be a little farther off than that. We'll see :D

    I'm "coming" to CU from WAR, my best game evarr :heart: .

    It's possible that Beta will start next weekend - at least, that is their current aim and the team is crunching (12 h workday ATM) to make it happen.

    Well, NDA is supposed to go off sometime in early beta - no need to hurry. Soon enough you should have streams, videos and whatnot.

    This game is going to be released fractured, over budget and way too fast .... that's just my opinion. They've cut nearly 70% of their original ideas for financial reasons and now they are rushing an incomplete project to market.

    Not trying to be negative, but I've been following the game for a long long time and I am extremely worried that they are going about this all wrong.

    Actually, they are under the budget currently. Also, what features were cut? (and...70% ??) And for what financial reasons? And who is rushing what?

    You are obviously confusing CU with some other game.

    My apologies Goblin ... you are exactly right ... I'm confusing Camelot Unchained with Trials of Ascension. All good

    It would be nice if this could somehow be edited in the OP!? Speaking of which, I too have a post upthere with couple recent images - certainly much better than waht is currently on the CU site front page.

    Another thing that should be said is, beta was delayed again (!) - for a month or two. The team decided that engine and class/combat system needs more work before they would be satisfied with it's performance, enough to call it beta.

    To sugarcoat it a bit, this is the luxury they wouldn't have if some AAA publisher was breathing behind their necks, beta would simply be enforced with some improvised duct tape fixes (if anyone remembers EA and Warhammer Online - they basically launched early beta). Again, here's Donkey explaining details:



    @Paradigm Hey, this is nice! It's rare to see someone doing that on the interwebz :) And ToA was indeed a catastrophy :p

    I'll edit the OP with the videos, just post what you want up there.

    I may even be able to get my wife to play this, DAoC was her first love.. And after I quit, she kept playing!

    Thanks! Hmm...where to begin? Here is couple possibly useful links, pick whatever you think will fit (that includes nothing, OFC :) )

    - IGN Wiki on CU - IMO best quick intro, with couple fancy pics & videos;

    - CU Reddit - https://www.reddit.com/r/CamelotUnchained/ (good for finding info or asking questions, thou it's quite likely that someone asked the same thing and already got the answer a month or two earlier);

    - Official CU Wiki - http://camelot.gamepedia.com/Camelot_Unchained_Wiki (say: PvE, Combat, The World, The Depths, Crafting, Building, Leveling, Realms, RvRvR...)

    - Speaking of images 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 - maybe some of these will do.

    Im heavily invested in this game $$$ wise. Im kinda glad beta keeps getting delayed, since I am playing a lot of BDO. Cant wait for this one! I havent jumped in Alpha in quite a while, so want to see how much has changed

    I'm pleased to see some excitement surrounding this title...I've have my eye on it for what seems like forever lol!

    Marc Jacob gets my vote; I never did get a chance to try DAOC but I actually enjoyed WAR.

    This game looks interesting. I am starting to research it now.

    On a different note @Namru (liquidice on the page) and @Zorph made a link website 15 years ago to get into DAoC beta.

    Here is the site for some laughts - https://web.archive.org/web/20020327124548/http://www.camelot-links.com/

    Also it looks like beta won't be long off. I read that if you pledge and change your mind before launch they will refund your money. The beta in this game is going to be real rough and not a playable/enjoyable gaming experience. It is still very early on and not close to a finished product.

    I invested in this game as well and have been following it since before the kickstarter campaign began. Daoc was my first venture into pvp and the rvr system was 2nd to none. Every pvp game since has, in my opinion, paled by comparison (sorry BDO). I hope it lives up to the hopes and dreams of the daoc community. Well, frankly at this point I just hope it launches :D.

    A quick intro to CU building - https://ello.co/jamesgoblin/post/lwcc9qkee_5xilkhpqhjma

    ...and this is roughly how the game looks like now, comparison with Crowfall by ItsZiz, with some recent alpha test footage:



    ...aaand some more alpha test buildings, mostly player made:

    Of course it will look much better at launch - not to mention buildings made by developers on some "historic" places. For what it's worth, beta should start in a month or two (tho it was delayed earlier...).

    Here is an updated FAQ that people might be interested in. They made a recent post showing some things in game on the forum and it is very promising. It is under NDA so I can’t post on an open forum. The game is coming along slowly, but has huge potential to be a very fun game.

    They are targeting July 4th as their beta date. If you enjoy PvP and don’t want a game were you have to no life or p2w, this is a game to consider.

    I am signed up for beta, but if others are interested I would be willing to consider upgrading to get more beta keys.

    I'm a huge fan of DAoC so yeah, I've been holding off buying a package until they had a solid beta date but I'm definitely down to play. This and Pantheon are my two games I've been watching.
