I have read through some of the threads and generally experienced a lot of hating throughout my time with Dark and Light.
I just believe so much of it is wrong and it sucks people lie so much about Dark and LIght.
I'll write a list of things which were wrong with Dark and Light and you can add to that if you think I'm missing stuff. But, if you are lieing, I'll fucking say you are. Because I've had enough of people lieing about Dark and Light and about it's flaws.
Finally, I don't think flaws are the same thing as disappointments.
We had very many disappointments in Dark and LIght. But, some gamers say the DnL client was more bugged than the closed beta client was. Some say it was the same thing as an older beta version. It's all bullshit. ... Being disappointed with Dark and Light doesn't mean you can diss the game and tell subjective lies about it.
So here is my list of bugs:
So many of these bugs are hardly that annoying and most of them were squashed.. Along with many other improvements or tweaks.
The biggest problem was stability/game crashes and ofcourse overpowered rangers. The other things didn't happen that often and most of them were were fixed. Stability really improved with later versions. Im not sure what happened to rangers
Some big problems were also skills not working for especially the stealth class.
I'm just tired of hearing a lot of bullshit about Dark and Light which was a fucking awesome and fun game. The roleplaying events were unlike any other games. It was just fun and interesting to be there. The pvp was awesome. Real vs Realm and fighting for training spots. .. Gamebreaker for me was the overpowered classes. That's why I took a break from the game. That and stability.
But, I suspect that many people just started to hate Dark and Light because they expected too much. They expected a finished game. Yes, they paid for it but everyone knew Dark and Light was not ready.. The community wanted it, so they launched. And I am happy it did. I got to play an exceptional game instead of not playing it.
It didn't matter to me that kingdoms were locked.
It didn't matter to me that you couldn't build cities or have playerowned houses.
It didn't matter to me that some classes had bugs or one class was completely bugged.
It didn't matter to me all those small bugs.
It didn't matter to me that areas of crafting didn't work.
Fuck that shit...
Dark and Light was fucking awesome. The world was big. One server for so many people. The stress test and early times were amazing. I got to be guild leader for 130 people in an amazing guild system much better than for example Star Wars Galaxies.
We had fun roleplaying, grinding and going to events. We had fun pvping and stealth was fucking amazing in that game. It's a bit like Darkfall where you can ambush people.
I fucking loved Dark and Light and none of you can change that. I know that many others loved it too. Avefenix is one.
So whatever you have to say about Dark and Light. I don't care.
And whatever you have to say about Darkfall. I don't care either. Dark and Light and Darkfall share many things. The good stuff from next gen mmorpgs that stupid and scared development teams don'tm dare. That progressive shit which only comes from passionate people like Vuuar and Tasos Flambouras.
And to the developer who left NP3Cube, I can only say. Thank you for hurting the game and leaving the project when they needed you the most. Being lead developer of an engine and then leaving when things like spells were to really utilize that world engine was not a nice thing to do. you let down a lot of players. And... When some of the community members here say that the world didn't have anything to do with the broken skills or broken quests. Well, I beg to differ. Extracting resources from excrement/bushes etc. has to do with the world. Knockback spells had to do with the engine. A lot of things were directly affected by this developer leaving. So fuck that shit..
Maybe some of you have joined his friend team of little followers. But, you are sell-outs and I got no respect for ya'll. You were always haters anyway.
It takes guts to anticipate an MMORPG and see the dreams and potential behind it. It takes a pure heart and a positive mind. Even when things are not the way u want them to be. Because no mmorpg came polished. World of Warcraft came closest. but, that game was/is severely limiting player freedom.
Mmorpgs were right from the start about waiting and sticking with the game untill it improved. Enjoying it for what it was, but knowing it would get better.
People fucking over Dark and LIght were lame... And overall the mmorpg community is so spoiled nowadays.
If Darkfall launch has flaws people will start a crusade to diss it. But, fuck all those haters. I don't care about you all.
You don't know anything.. And you belong in singleplayer.
MMORPGs are the most complex of all videogames. To love them, also means to worship developers with your support and faith. They are doing amazing things in very difficult territory.
But, Dark and LIght is in a coma now. Who know what will come of the lawsuit here in the end of October. I hope NP3cube wins and DnL gets a small comeback with the updates in China. Chinese gamers say that they are playing the game now. So I hope it's true. I still believe in Dark and Light. But, nevertheless... I would like to direct the last bastion to anticipate Darkfall.
Though, of course we will never forget Dark and Light, Vuaar and Np3cube. And if they decide to make a comeback. I think I will give them my support and loyalty.
But for now.
Those with pure hearts shall be welcomed into Tasos' arms.
