    It should win for both 2008 and 2009.

    Some people call me Logicbomb or Logic or a**hole. Whatever works.

    And don't forget 2010 and 2011.

     

    I know Tasos thinks that people like me talking crap because we are sceptical. Didn't he even said something like "Fuck them".

     

    It is his own fault. They need to do some decent communicating with their fanbase. I am not a fan or something, but I feel sad for the people who are loyal fans, and still know squat about the games release in less then 2 weeks.

     

    So Tasos, same right back! And I even want to challenge you, probally as all the people like me, to deliver this game on time, just for your fans.

     

    Hmm did I just wrote a post to Tasos?

    Darkfail ,the game with the most fanatical fans that rival religios followers in the middle ages... made 100 accounts each to get it a prize wich it doesnt even deserve to hear about... shows how good the community will be.

  • johnnychangsjohnnychangs Rockland, MEPosts: 249Member Uncommon

    A game where developers fail to deliver repeatedly.  Wow, sounds just like one of the many failed MMOs.  But wait...Darkfall hasn't been released yet.

    Add a developer who makes rude comments to the MMO community and openly argues with employees from other MMOs.

    Darkfall may turn out to be an awesome game, but it didn't get my vote here, and I'm not going to play it.  Congrats on the award regardless.

    Its repeating just like DnL. The same pattern is evolving.

    Nope, he didn't. But he really had the right to say that to the trolls like you putting words in his mouth and trolling around, spending their whole day to give his work a bad name (what do you get out of this?). Before you say you're not a troll; "It should win for both 2008 and 2009." is a classical troll statement, no denying here.

    The real fans do actually know alot of the game and most people who followed darkfall for longer than one year are not complaining about a lack of information.

    Finally picked a winner....I got shot down on all the other awards so far....

    Yeah, face it...everyone wants to know if this game can live up to its promise...even if they don't want to play.

    [quote]Darkfall Online, a game that intends to bring the sandbox back into the world of fantasy MMORPGs[/quote]

    That's not quite right.  There are other fantasy/historical sandbox mmos out there, that have been doing it for years: 


    • WURM Online

    • Roma Victor

    • A Tale in the Desert

    Though I think Darkfall will be more popular than those three combined.  After all, it's the most violent.

    congrats aventurine. darkfall is TEH game 2009.

  • busdriverbusdriver nyPosts: 859Member

    As it should be.

    I mean, what else is there? Aion? ROFLMAO

  • spikenogspikenog heh, RIPosts: 283Member

  • Master25Master25 AmsterdamPosts: 21Member

    It's epic to read all these saddened flaming posts. laughing my ass off at em.

     

    A well deserved win.

  • KinikkaKinikka Houtzdale, PAPosts: 23Member

    Its pretty apparent that those who dislike the game for *whatever* reason are more obsessed with it then those that are looking forward to it.

    Thats really rather.... Sad...  rofl

    Whats there to be afraid of, you guys will still have your WoW and other cookie cutter games to mindlessly drone on through. Or is it like a... If someone else is happy its makes me sad kinda thing?

     

    Easy win... Would've had a higher percentage if the community here wasn't mostly a bunch of tools.

    I am calling Bull manure on this. The real fans as well as everyone else knows what is force feed to them BY WORDS from Tasos. Its the "real fans" that turn those words into the word of god. 

    The cultists just cant understand that the majority of the public wants to see that what is being told  to us is in fact the way it is in game. We do not blindly belive that what is said about the game is in the game, especcially these days since there has been countless  broken promises and flawed system mechanics.

    proof that gaming companies should be pouring their development euros/dollars/pounds into DEVELOPMENT, not 50% development, 50% marketing.

     

    good games will market themselves.

     

    go darkfall!

  • midway22midway22 Arlington, VAPosts: 9Member

    Darkfall definetly deserves this. Congratulations!

    Even if you are not a fan of sandbox games you must realize how this is so much different from the cookie cutter mold the rest of the gaming industry is using. And be glad that there are companies out there trying to create something different even if you are not sure you will like it. This is an essentially a indie company and does not have the resources that players are used to in other main stream titles so cut them some slack.

    Also I find it odd that the first few posts are not even darkfall fans but trolls just complaining about what  amounts to nothing.

    what are you even talkn about?

    the game isn't out, and neither is open beta, so we can't absolutely know for sure. And that's how it's been for every single MMO out there. What makes Darkfall any different?

    "blindly believe"

    well we have quotes from the dev, we have interviews, we have screenshots, we have videos, and we even have beta leaks.

    Countless broken promises and flawed system mechanics? Name me some of these broken promises and flawed system mechanics plz.
