With this blog being closed there are a few places you can get info:
CA Wiki – This probably is the best source of info. The people that post info here are pretty good about keeping info relevant and true (compared to other game wiki’s I’ve used).
Michael Lemay’s Notes on FB – His notes on the Conquest stuff have become invaluable. He also has posted on the new Conquest Chest (waste of money IMHO).
Google – Simply Google Castle Age with the term you are looking for. Such as “Castle Age Conquest Chest”. It will get you to where you want to be most of the time.
CA Forums – I would suggest this as a last resort. In fact doing a Google Search from above will probably bring you directly to where you want to be without having to browse the forum.
Edit 12/18/11 – You may still see me around doing some PvP… but probably not much more than that!!!
Mursilis made a very good posting on the CA forum about the current state of players in the game. This post has really driven the point home for some players, but sadly I don’t think for the developers. If you care about the future of CA it may be worth posting in that thread.
The forum used to be a great place to get info, now it is becoming increasingly hard to get that info. Between the pointless spam, character assassinations, and threads wondering where the old days went it is hard to imagine a future for the forum. Sadly it appears the game itself is mirroring the forum (or probably visa-versa).
Having a person such as Mursilis make this posting really drives the point home. It was Legends like him that made me strive to become a Legend. When I became a Legend myself I was proud to try living up to being the type of person that exhibits Legendary behavior. This is what kept me going in the game. But seeing many of the original players (not just Legends) leaving and lashing out against the devs I cannot do anything but think they are right….
For this reason I will join those who leave the game. Yes, I know I left the game before and came back, but this time it is different. I wish those who continue on with the game the best, and I really hope the devs listen to their user-base!
The picture problems that affected my blog are (mostly) fixed. Most important the Don’t Give to Kobo pictures are fixed!
I have updated the Don’t Give to Kobo page with the last few monsters / quest areas that have come out. Holy cow is there a lot to keep away from Kobo. It almost isn’t worth taking the chance unless you are very careful.
I’ll be back from my mini-hiatus tommorow. Nope, didn’t stop playing, just had a VERY busy month!!! Posts forthcoming tomorrow on updates and the new arena.
I have returned to the game after helping a friend get started with it.. Couldn’t resist after that! Won’t be any actual content posts until I get caught up with what has been done in the last half year or so.
I’ll try to make this brief. This will be the last post on this blog. I’ve decided to return to my MMORG roots and start playing WoW again.
As part of this I have disabled CA on my FB account and will no longer play the game. Its been a fun distraction for the last year. But honestly I’ve found the Social Media games like CA and MW too lacking in what I look for in a good game.
I appreciate the traffic I’ve gotten on this site and the great comments I’ve received. But its time to move on now.
Good luck everyone!
