We watched the numbers and concluded that a new friend should join the family. The THREE classic rule servers are going to be up at 11:00 AM EDT instead of ten as I posted last night, but that hour will mean good things for the weekend.
MMORPG.com: Can you give us an update on the health of DAoC?
Sanya Thomas: Doing great. Log in and try it!
• we're working on a gorgeous new expansion with the long-discussed player mounts, and cool new champion levels and quests.
• subscriber numbers are up, and it's August (typically a very stagnant month in the industry)
• we're trying a new server type, based off player requests, and it's been very popular so far
• we've radically tweaked requirements and encounters for the Trials of Atlantis expansion
• we've revamped the new player experience (older MMOGs have a tough entry hurdle for true newbies, but we basically built a ramp over that hurdle)
We're also about to launch a free island zone. It's connected to the RVR frontiers, and it plays like a battleground for high level players. And keep siege RVR is just a quick trot across the bridge away.
All in all, it's an exciting time. I've been hanging around Mythic since December of '99, and it's been feeling like the old days with all the changes.
