Camelot Grab Bag Q&A

Mythic’s Sanya Thomas has once again posted her weekly Grab Bag Q&A on the Camelot Herald, this time addressing questions about 2005’s free expansion, the lack of mithril, and more. Here’s a taste:

Q: Regarding the new Merit System stuff for guilds, will the patch retroactivate for players, guilds, and guild leaders who have already reached these levels?

A: The answer for now at least is no – the intent behind the system is add another mechanism that rewards our guilds for helping new players. New players stay longer and enjoy the game more when they have guilds helping them to belong.

There are many other benefits to this new system, obviously, but our focus is on the new player.

Making the benefits retroactive would have a much larger impact on the game than to simply start from scratch, and after three and a half years, it seems best to start off with everyone even.

At the same time, I do understand why people want the changes to be retroactive. I’ve been playing since launch, obviously 😉 It sort of feels like I’m losing something, although that’s definitely not the case. Really, I’m going to start out at the exact same place as everyone else in terms of the ability to make new friends and help them along. It could not be more fair, I know. But it still feels weird. I have passed on your feedback along with some wonderful suggestions from the community. Please keep the feedback coming.
