King's Tournament Leaderboard Correction Notice

Posted by Development | 2014 Oct 01 15:55 -0400 GMT

Players, since this is our first King's Tournament, we expect there will be a few kinks to work out. Here's the first of hopefully few.

We've been tracking and checking the leaderboard numbers all day and we recently discovered a mistake in our script such that it considered RPs earned by some players yesterday as valid for the tournament. This isn't fair and we're going to correct the situation now.

To be clear: no data is changing; no earned RPs have been lost. We're simply making a change to our tournament script to ensure that we exclude any RPs earned before 12:00 AM October 1, 2014 from consideration.

When we make the change, you'll notice a big shift in the current King's Tournament rankings on the next hourly update. This is expected and the new rankings will be correct and official.

Picking Up The Torch

Posted by John Thornhill | 2014 Sep 28 14:33 -0400 GMT

Greetings friends,
 
I couldn't be more excited about the future of Dark Age of Camelot! Talal has been a great ambassador of the game and a visionary leader. I only hope to partly fill his shoes and carry on the torch he has made so bright.
 
For those that don't know, I've been the Lead Designer on the team for quite some time now and am intimately familiar with our current and future plans. Speaking of those plans, I'd like to outline the next patch cycle for you as well as the general focus and resources of the team for the foreseeable future.

Passing The Torch

Posted by Talal Saad | 2014 Sep 28 14:25 -0400 GMT

Friends and Realm mates,

It’s a time of great change for Dark Age of Camelot. This era of new beginnings started with the transition of DAoC from Mythic to Broadsword. We saw more change when we, as Broadsword, invested time and energy into revitalizing Camelot, developing interesting new content, and adding new and updated elements to the game with the goal of reminding the world that there was never - and will never - be a finer PvP MMO than Dark Age of Camelot. The evolution continues!

Hot Fix - Keep LoS Issues #2

Posted by John Thornhill | 2014 Sep 23 11:52 -0400 GMT
Greetings!

  • The Line of Sight and pet pathing around Caer Berkstead, Nottmoor Faste, and Dun Crimthainn should be much improved now. This means those pesky "cannot see target" messages should not be seen as much when attacking enemies or healing realmmates when inside these keeps!
Players should see these changes immediately without needing to re-patch or relog.

Hot Fix - Keep LoS Issues

Posted by John Thornhill | 2014 Sep 22 13:50 -0400 GMT
Here are your piping-hot Hot Fix notes:
  • Line of Sight and pet pathing inside the Ruined Keeps should be much improved. This means those pesky "cannot see target" messages should not be seen as much when attacking enemies or healing realmmates when inside these keeps!
  • Some collision adjustments have been made to lower tier Keep models.
