GOA loses the Dark Age of Camelot licence

Doesn't affect anyone in the US, but over here there HAS to be some rumblings. For what it's worth I think GOA do a good job for European customers. The CSR's have been friendly and helpful and any server crashes I believe are more related the game stability rather than the server itself. Updates to the game are within 48 hours (barring European holidays/weekends) compared to DAoC's weeks - months. It's news on a slow news day...

Today, it was announced that after eight years of operating Dark Age of Camelot in Europe, GOA’s license with Mythic Entertainment will soon expire and they will no longer publish or support the game.

Over the years, GOA has fostered a vibrant and dedicated community that is passionate about the game. In the coming weeks, GOA will be entrusting Mythic with this community of players.

We are currently working with GOA to take over operation of the game and its European community, and will soon be providing details about pressing player questions such as existing subscriptions, character transfers, game versions, localization, and more. We look forward to welcoming all players from the European servers and look forward to supporting them in the years to come.

While this closes one chapter for DAoC in Europe, a new one begins with a bright future of RvR ahead.

We’ll see you in the Frontiers!
