Yesterday, on the official Warhammer forums Kai Schober discussed some of the updates behind the Dark Age of Camelot and Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning websites. Originally the Warhammer Online website was scheduled to be updated/redesigned by the end of August. While the biggest delay has obviously been the Account Management System migration for all three games, he gave a little more detail about the update:
The version update of the DAoC web site comes first, then we’ll launch the WAR site, which is almost completely converted by now. (Yes, this mean another delay.)
RealmWar won’t be part of the functionality of the new site.
About an hour ago he mentioned another delay:
Update it from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7. That update delayed the WAR page, too.
If you’re curious about the Dark Age of Camelot website update (you can see the site at DarkAgeofCamelot), here’s a video they made about it:
With all of the attention being given to the DAoC and WAR websites, and with the move of DAoC form CamelotHerald.com to DarkAgeofCamelot.com, here’s hoping Ultima Online’s website gets a makeover and moves back to UO.com. UO desperately needs a website makeover and needs to go back to UO.com. At the same time, they can’t lose the things that are still present on UO.com, and they need to bring back the MyUO.com aspects (and similar functionality was removed from the DAoC and WAR websites, probably due to the account migration).
