I decided to pop on here with the intentions of hopefully
being able to character copy a toon from Mordred to a different
server. Now I am an old school player from awhile back and
the reason I decided to leave DAoC was because Mordred died
and there was absolutely no reason to dedicate so much time
towards all of my characters on Mordred (being the PvP junky
that I am) just so they can be stripped away due to a dead
server and ABSOLUTELY no PvP whatsoever. Can anyone tell
me if there is a posibility that I can transfer my characters
to a different server?

Thanks,
Kronith

Since none of these children (the same ones who were members of the attitude set that destroyed the server) will give you an even semi-adult answer, it is quite simply no. I doubt that it will ever happen at this point.

I didn't know the server died because of people having attitude. I always thought DAoC just didn't pay attention to mordred. Oh wait, they don't so you saying that it is due to people who have attitude is false. LIAR!

I expect that not one of you will take responsibility for your part in the downfall of the server. It's because most of you haven't changed. The behaviors of the minority of "elite" ego-tripping tools on Mordred drove countless people to give up and go somewhere they would not be gray ganked, griefed, flamed, killed during raids after spending hours waiting for the small hope they would get that one item they had needed for months, etc.

Oh sure, you can all say it was Mythic's fault, it was this or that expansion, it was this or that nerf or class or whatever. The fact is that human nature killed the server. It's a Lord of the Flies scenario, not that I expect most of you to understand the reference. And I'm not saying any of this with the hope that you will suddenly see the light and realize that if people had felt like they had a chance on Mordred to compete and have fun without all of the pricks ruining it for them, then maybe we would all still be having a good time. I know that you will never see it, because all you want to do is talk shit, deny responsibility for your actions, and group up into your little gangs of like-minded fools who cry and yell about the boat sinking while they simultaneously punch holes in the sides, all the while whining about how it's the captain's fault, the crew's fault, the boat manufacturer's fault, ad infinitum.

The fact is that if you are unable to recognize that 95% of the people who quit left because of how they were treated, then you are almost certainly a member of the 5% whose actions and attitudes caused them to leave in the first place. And yes, the server had inherent flaws and was not well tended to by Mythic. But people still play the game, even with all of its flaws. Ultimately, Mordred would have survived those flaws, but it was destined to fail from the day that it was created. A dog-eat-dog environment with no negative consequences for the mistreatment of those who are less powerful than you is bound to self-destruct.

Why am I even writing this? I tried forever to help people realize that they were killing the very server that we all wanted to save. It didn't work then, and it's pointless now. Logic is wasted on people who can't see past their own egos.

This entire game is made up of people who think they are better then everyone else and honestly if you don't think that way, then well you have low self esteem, that or you don't care to improve yourself. Instead of crying, confront the challenge at hand. This happens every day in real life, why shouldn't it in a video game?

The people knew what they were getting into when starting on mordred. It is a PvP server, people can kill others in PvE areas.. Once again I will say it is Mythic's fault because THEY could have changed it so others couldn't kill people PvEing but they didn't because thats the game of PvP. Yeah its screwed up to do it, I'll admit, I did it as well but not nearly as much as other people. But I always rezzed and let them be afterwards but thats just me and a handful of other people I know who do this. Some people bury themselves with the crap talking after they get killed while PvEing, which they shouldn't because it is a Video Game and won't get you rezzed or help your case.. There are bigger problems in real life.. Just log on another toon and kill the gankers or move somewhere else that isn't regularly used, there are plenty of places to PvE in peace, people are just too lazy to look.

In the end, the real reason why mordred died is because people couldn't hack it and mostly because of mythic not doing the needed adjustments to the server. It is well known that Mordred was left alone YEARS ago. Nothing will bring back the server unless they do a Character Copy of some sort, which if they let people transfer off of mordred it will just be a fast way out of a bad thing and the complete end of mordred. Not to mention, the entire game is dying so the servers who have low population will of course be the first ones to go.

Right you are. You've won again, which is all that ever mattered to you and those like you. You won't see reason, and I won't argue with a fool. Enjoy your victory while we both wish Mordred was still around.

The people who griefed and grey ganked were largely the 'non-elites' who couldn't compete and the flaming wasn't limited to a certain group of people and definitely not some sort of 'elite' minority.

It was the 'elites' who killed raids so you're partly right about that although I think that's part of a pvp server and to be fair, the AE BG patch reduced the effectiveness of busting raids but it was too late to make an impact.

First of all, that's not a fact and there was no magic 5% ruining it for everyone else. What there was, was an old game with a company that stopped supporting it.

You seem to be forgetting that DAoC used to have about 30,000 people online across the different servers and is now down to 1 server with 2-3000 online.
After the merger with Andred, Mordred had no other server to merge with and nobody is interested in playing on a server with <100 online.

I remember 30k plus online, with 2-3k peak on Mordred. The game definitely took a dump overall. I'm not trying to say that there weren't a number of reasons why DAOC or Mordred itself died. But to deny that a minority of players on Mordred seemingly went out of their way to ruin the fun for the rest of the more casual player base is to assert that disrespectful, underhanded treatment does not negatively impact the way people perceive an experience, which is ludicrous. And no, of course it wasn't just the elites who acted like turds. It was, as I said, a Lord of the Flies experiment in which human nature was revealed and those who had no way to exercise power in their day to day lives took out their frustrations online.

I'm not bringing back the server or changing minds, so I'll admit defeat. The elites will never admit their part in the downfall of the server, and I guess it doesn't really matter if they do anyway. Done's done, and I'm done.

I wasn't even thinking about winning. I was just proving a point.

I agree with most of what you're saying actually. I was disagreeing with your statement that 95% left because the remaining 5%, the 'elites' as you call them, were acting like assholes.

A small question though, what was your name in the game and when did you start playing? I have been trying to connect your vn handle to a character but I draw a blank everytime.

Blackspine was my main. I doubt I'd ring a bell for anyone who ran with the 8-man's and powerful guilds. I wasn't ever good enough at PVP to make a name for myself in those areas. Got myself to RR10 through small-man and solo PVP. I still miss this damned game. Sorry if I offended anyone by coming across as a fanatic about the "elite" thing. I knew a lot of elite players, and I liked many of them. I guess I'm just looking for a target to unload my displeasure about Mordred's demise tongue

I think the problem on mordred was/is that you can't pvp in capital cities or housing. If they paid attention to mordred.. houses would be siegable just like keeps. Fighting would be allowed in capital towns and in housing. happy This way people couldn't hide out when they didn't have their perfect 8 man group.
