Mythic Entertainment has updated the Camelot Herald with an announcement that new "Alternative Rules" servers for Dark Age of Camelot will be going online in July. The full announcement:
We are very pleased to announce our plan for the next server type for Dark Age of Camelot. We've made this decision based on your feedback from our polls and Herald feedback forms thank you all for your passionate and detailed feedback on these issues.
The new server type will be called (Alternative Rules) and has two main features: no access to Trials of Atlantis and (ranged buffs). Here are the details:
Trials of Atlantis: ToA zones will not be available, nor will Artifacts or Master Levels. You will be able to play ToA races, however.
Ranged Buffs: All concentration buffs will have a range limit of 5000 units, and will be available only to the buffer and his groupmates. Anyone outside of the group cannot receive concentration buffs.
/level 20: This feature will not be available on this server type.
Our schedule is to launch two of these servers on or around July 14. We will (pre launch) the servers two days early for anyone who has an active account as of July 1st it will give those players who already have active accounts a 2-day sneak preview of this new server type.
Thank you all for your feedback we have received on these issues, and we hope that this server type will provide an interesting alternative ruleset to Dark Age of Camelot. The work doesn't end here, however please keep the feedback coming.
