So, after quitting WoW, I have been trying something to occupy my free-time. Books go too fast and I don't wanna buy a single player game for now, so I started working on some trials.

One of these is Dark Age of Camelot. I played for a while back (my first MMOG) and I enjoyed the hell out of it at the time. Now... now I wish there were more people who play it. With the exception of server populations ranging into the high 200's during prime time (it IS an old game), the game has undergone some massive improvements. It's still DAoC but with improved graphics, quests, instanced dungeons, free expansions... it's a nice game.

The population issue is kind of mitigated with multiple servers being merged, though the characters are named "Name - Server" if they aren't native to the server you choose.

All in all, it's something to pass the time with. Just wish CoH/CoV had a trial version. May have to pay for a month and try to hide that fact from my boys (they are dying to play CoH).

You know... there's myself and a few friends playing CoH/CoV. We even have Glistam AFK for five minutes every few days. It's so much fun.

You could also pick up PSU and then I would actually log back in and finally justify the fact that I pay keep my characters there active.

As far as CoH, I'm even afk sometimes for a full 15 minutes a day.

I've got three games running that I don't have time to play, thanks to ubiquitous sea time: CoH, Planetside, and EQ2.

WTF!?! CoH/CoV have no downloadable updates outside of the standard updater?!

That blows ass.

IIRC, you can just download the patcher and it will pull the entire game down...

I still have CoH/CoV, but it's an old build. I'm running the patcher now and getting a phenomenal 20kb/sec... we're talking nearly 12 hours of downloading. That's total BS.

Also, I would post on the CoH forums for any help, but I need to reactivate my account in order to find the answer I'm sure I already have. I've tried Googling, FilePlant, FileFront, COH/COV website and NOTHING.

Why on earth would you want to keep your patchs soley to yourself and tie up any bandwidth that could be put towards the game?!

For the record, we're on Victory server. I don't have my old account any more, so I made a new one and then got my brother in law and our friend hooked.

When you get to level 5, that's when the first of some of the fun new content shows up. Radio/Newspaper missions and Safeguards rock. We have a tiny base that's in disarray because we're in the process of remodelling it. It's the small lot, so we don't have to pay rent.

We have a villain-side group going, too, but they're a little neglected.

We have two "themed" groups going. On the hero side we have Natural Katana/Regen ninja scrappers with a color and flower, and on the villain side, we have a rap posse made of thug masterminds and they're thug friends.

If you want to look me up, I'm on some days during the week and certainly on, for at least a little, on weekends :

Croatian Thunder
Fire-Kat
Zoe Grey
Seurge
Fire-Saint
Yellow-Rose
Kawaiiko
Power-Burst

By the by... how do I get a message to you, Leedon? I'm not sure if you can make friends with characters when they aren't logged in, and I have e-mailed you a couple of times (Recipient = CT) and I have no idea if you got it or if I've done it right.

I was on and off durinbg the day this weekend. I kept an eye out for your two characters but didn't see you.

Did you or Mongo still have links to character planners for CoH? I used to have one, but I can't find it.

I'd have to look around for it. I will update this reply if I find one.

Edit:

http://sherksilver.coldfront.net/index.php has a downloadable planner.

http://www.cohplanner.com/ has an online version.

I was working nights this weekend, so I didn't play.

I've been considering going the Villain route for a bit because... well, because I play odd times with rotating shift-work and it's hard enough to find people on as is. Time to make some friends I guess.

Still, if you can say when you'll be on, we can at least get you into the BEB chat channel so we could communicate while I'm pounding villians into the dirt. There are also some PvP zones I'm sure we can meetup in.

Funky! You can do chat across party lines?! I need to get on my Hero anyway and start farming for some costume items to sell (and get my extra slot). I put up my extra pieces I had from all the Trick or Treating I did and ended up with around 200K inf.

I was browsing around the internet and found this nifty CoV fan-site. Very well done and an entertaining read:

Arachnos Mutagenics
