Not that this warrants a new thread or anything, but am I blind or is there no thread dedicated to this game? Personally, I never played it(no surprise there), but everyone I know who likes MMO games used to play this nonstop. Until WoW came out. I mean EVERYONE. Is there some sort of animosity going on on this board? I have no opinion about the game, it just struck me as curious - every other MMO game in the universe seems to have a thread. Maybe I'm just oblivious and missed it.

I think it sort of just got over shadowed by everything else that was coming out at the same time.

Some of us played it for a while, way back when. The game WAS pretty damn awesome! I think it STILL has the best PvP system out there. I even tried to go back to it for the 2-week trial. They changed alot of stuff, but the graphics are still sub-par in my book.

Couldn't take it after one day, so I stopped playing.

TRASSIN: I'm guessing about 21 days? Assuming you take a break every 7th day or so.

DAoC was a milestone for me. That was the first game (and only one so far) that I've hit the level cap. I had a Shaman named Fiddlefoddle. It was pretty fun. There's no way I could go back now, since you can't cast spells that have a casting time while something is attacking your in melee.

Graphics are never a priority for me. It's a bonus, to be sure, but I'm all about story story story.

Graphics engine, on the other hand, is important. If the engine blows so bad that it takes forever to load a new zone, then it's a real turn-off.

Yes, load times are ridiculous, especially since they are unnecessary. I forgot the formal term, but basically you can have all relevant, on-screen data loaded into memory the moment you experience it, in realtime, and even advanced, memory heavy next gen graphics can make use of it. The tech has been around for years, I wonder why only a few games have used it.

They probably want to be available to gamers with older machines. I'm sure they make up at least half of the gamers out there.
