V. Twitch Hosting Update

As you can see our Twitch streaming schedule on the right bar still has quite a few streamers each week.

However, we wanted to update you on our new approach to Twitch.

We've shifted our focus away from having people stream on our official channel to instead hosting individual streams from our ever growing community of DAOC streamers! This gives those of you interested in becoming DAOC personalities a chance to get some official channel airtime!

Our aim is to have a hosted or scheduled stream up at all hours so be sure to follow the channel for alerts of when your favorite streamer is on!

User Interface
The User Interface work continues. We're busy normalizing the look and layout and picking the 'default' state of the UI. We're also creating a new skin and making some significant improvements to quickbars! You can expect to see the first batch of changes later this summer!

New Account Center
We spoke last newsletter about the new Account Center coming: it's completely revamped from the ground up in look, user-flow, and features. That said, we want to launch this as smoothly as possible and so we've decided to take a few extra months to test it. We expect to roll it out this next fall and are excited to make returning to the game easier than ever.
Camelot Herald 
Details on the website revamp and re-skin are being worked out as you read this. We're still aiming to have the new site up and running by the end of the year!
Please forward this to your DAOC curious friends and help get them into the game!
