My Grab Bag Got Stuck In The Overhead Bin

Posted by Development | 2014 Jul 27 23:04 -0400 GMT

Today's Grab Bag is devoted entirely to questions asked as a result of Friday's Producer's Letter

They're great questions and we're really pleased to be able to provide the answers. We have questions about the adjustments to New Frontiers, the addition of 5 new Champion Levels, improvements to the LFG window and more!  Without further ado - your Grab Bag:

Q: how about sending everyone a free 15 day time code after the change give everyone a chance to experience?

A: We’d be happy to do a ‘Come Back To Camelot’ campaign around the time we release the adjustments to NF as well as the Champion Level updates! We’re excited to have the Frontier population increase so that everybody gets the chance to experience some awesome action! We’ll follow up with announcements on when it will take place, and rest assured it will be long enough for players to get their opportunity to play. 

Producer's Letter

Friends and Realm Mates,

It’s been some time since we’ve reached out to you to talk about our plans and vision for Dark Age of Camelot for both near and long term.

In the time since our last communication, we’ve been hard at work putting into place the foundation for the exciting updates and improvements we plan to release for our venerable game. In recent Grab Bags, we touched on a few of these updates, but I would like to give you a solid breakdown of what we have on the burner, and touch on the priority and reasoning behind our plans.

3 Realms, 7 Questions, 5 Winners...1 Grab Bag!

Posted by Community | 2014 Jun 20 19:35 -0400 GMT

Happy Friday and welcome to another edition of the Dark Age of Camelot Grab Bag! Sir Grabford is still in Carol's dungeon for his theft of her last Grab Bag, so he will not be availble for questions today. The good news is that your good friends on the Dark Age of Camelot Team are!

For your chance to win a 30 Day Game Time Code, please submit your Grab Bag questions to daoc@broadsword.com or via PostCount using the following link:      http://www.postcount.net/forum/forms.php?do=form&fid=5

Q: Things are being worked on. God bless. But is there anyway we could see what you are working on and your priority list are at todays game ?

A: On the horizon are a few initiatives which will broaden the communication between Broadsword and our players. Basic information given through, say, the Grab Bag can be informative – but it’s not always the best way to communicate our vision and progress. We are looking forward to providing video patch notes, dev diaries, and interviews/Q & A with the Dev team so that you can receive important information on a more frequent basis!
