Dark Age of Camelot
turns 10 this week, and if that doesn't make you feel old, well, you're probably not very old (and while we're at it, kindly remove yourself from our lawn). At any rate, Scott Jennings
waxes nostalgic about the fantasy RvR title on his personal blog
by posting a remembrance from original Mythic
producer Matt Firor
The piece is heavy on the meta details, and a read-through will give you an idea of how drastically the MMO industry has changed over the past decade. Firor talks about Mythic's scramble to meet the crushing demand for more servers and the resulting mad dash for the nearest computer retailer to purchase a dozen desktops that were quickly loaded with Linux and whipped into an ad-hoc server cluster.
There are more interesting details, of course, and you can read them all at Broken Toys.
