    Camelot Unchained - a Kickstarter-funded MMORPG focused on RvR & Crafting

    Some comments by a dev:

    Dev here. We're planning for a subscription. I realize that's not entirely in fashion right now, but the key for Camelot Unchained is that we're specifically not making it for everyone to enjoy a little bit. We're making something that we hope will appeal much more to a much smaller number of players, and because their specific interests are being served better here than anywhere else, they'll turn around and invest in the game not just with a monthly subscription but with their own involvement in the game world.
    One of the devs here. We're not really trying to rewrite history, but we do believe there's a niche that's not being served by any of the big MMORPGs right now. By concentrating on RvR and crafting, we're focusing the game entirely on what a dedicated player base can sustain itself with long-term. Because we're NOT spending a lot of money on PvE content that gets consumed, we can make something that's viable for a much-smaller but more-dedicated group of players.
    That's not a pitch for everyone, and we don't expect it to be, but we won't need 1M players or even 100k players for a game of this scope to be very viable. We absolutely can make this game, but the exciting thing about crowdfunding is that we'll find out whether it appeals to ENOUGH people before we do any major development.
    Downsides:

    Kickstarter-funded
    Subscription

    Upsides:

    Made by guys who already did RvR really well once.

    BAMPING PHRED because the kickstarter officially opened today.

    One day in and they have 250k, which is pretty good.

    I would love to relive the glory days of my 9th and 10th grade staying up all night playing daoc. I honestly thought the pvp in WAR wasn't too bad either, all in all. If he delivers on his promises, and gets a small but community, I would certainly be willing to sub to something like this.

    Know nothing about this but it's doubled to 500k now.

    That should easily fund the beginning development of a sub-based MMO, especially if they flip a bit later in to "pre-order" mode for another cash infusion.
    I tried to be cool and all I got was a lousy warning about my sig being too big.

    Considering the massive love for daoc i'd be surprised if this doesn't go considerably over the goal. Plus Jacobs is throwing in 2mil of his own cash. Whether the game will be good or not.... I poured my heart and soul into WAR and was left so disappointed it just wasn't daoc and I don't know if daoc would be popular anymore.

    How have EA ended up with the copyright for RVR?

    Also 3 ppl have pledged $10k :S I still don't understand why people throw so much money at kickstarters.

    Its the trademarked name for 1v1v1 that was in daoc. EA owns the trademark because it bought Mythic.

    Fantasy factional warfare.

    edit: Or I guess it's kinda like the Clear Sky Faction War mod (I need to play that again)

    I will believe beta when it happens.

    Still looking forward to it mind, but I've lost count how many delays we've had so not holding my breath.
