Jesus what is wrong with this company?  Check out Tasos's post:

Don't permanently ban someone because you have no clue how to code a way into your system to be able to rename their character's names... DON'T PERMANENTLY BAN SOMEONE FOR YOUR INCOMPETIENCE!

    This is stupid, instead of  *harshly* punishing people for their choice of name, they could simply have a report option when you righlt click the character's portrait or something. Imagine the poor guy who's name just happens to be Illil or something and gets banned for having the name...

    Once again, MMO 101 seems to have escaped the makers of darkfall.

    So instead of forcing renames, the best solution they can give to people is.... "Delete your character and make a new one?"  That's a move I would expect from an incompetent company.  For a company that made a sandbox game for people that supposedly want to think "outside" the box.  They sure did pick the laziest way possible to solve this.

    In War - Victory.
    In Peace - Vigilance.
    In Death - Sacrifice.

    Doesn't matter...  What if someone wanted a crazy name and they weren't actually NOT A HACKER?!  OH NOES!

     

    But seriously, what else do we expect since this game was made in a 3rd world country that doesn't have "free speech" to make whatever name they wanted... but whatever...   =)

    Can this game hurry up and go away so we can have another mmo come in its place...

  • prowprow jacksonville, FLPosts: 188Member

    Also...

     

    WHY NOT ALLOW THEM TO CHANGE THEIR NAME????????????

     

    Permanently banning people for this is ridiculous...

    No such things as free speech on a privately held forum or game.

    Hey I'm not defending the route they are taking, I was just trying to show you what might be behind the decision.

    If you want the game to go away so bad, you know you could just go follow another game.   For someone who is not interested in darkfall and wants it to go away, you had this thread created within a few minutes of his update on the official forums.   Do you always follow the official forums so closely of games you want to go away?

  • tlbabstlbabs Flagstaff, AZPosts: 30Member

    Could it be that if they permaban a paying customer they can now add a new paying customer since  their  thousands of  full servers  now have  one less person?

  • mcquaidedmcquaided chicago, ILPosts: 157Member

    on a side not i do like Tasos pathetic futile attempt to scare hackers. Catuious hackers get away with their dirty deeds in games that have all the information server side yet Darkfall that has been confirmed to have most of the data client side can log and detect hacking. LOL .

    Im going to sell you a dream.

  • parrotpholkparrotpholk Leland, NCPosts: 3,275Member

    Tone of the update seemed a bit arrogant actually. Especially telling everyone that no one is cheating much but they will get around to the ones who are. To much double talk when he posts. And regarding sales goes I just do not hear about a huge upswing in population to back up that claim either. They need a new mouthpiece for the company as it seems Tasos is not the man for the job anymore.  If they still cannot afford a new cluster and server at this point then they just need to shut it down. This limited sales ploy has run its course and I am not sure people are buying it. And as far as the naming goes thats just stupid. If nothing else just make them change there name or change it for them.

    No, you were just saying it because you don't know what your talking about.

    1. It's their game, their rules - play by them or sod off.

    2. Anyone named iLLiLLi ( IllIllI ) has chosen that name to be a jerk, period.

    I have seen it in many games, exploiters and cheaters use these names to make it very hard to report them effectively i.e Planetside.

    3. Why didn't they foresee this nonsense by enforcing a software naming policy?

    4. Good for them.

    totally agree.

  • JorendoJorendo EdePosts: 263Member

    Its a shame to see what course this game is sailing. It looked promising but so far i only hear disapoiting things about the game, either by players or by reading stuff on their verry imature and amateur forum. Also i find it hard to take a game seriouse when the creators do not even attempt to update their game site, its allmost like they don't give a damn about their game and thats a real shame.

    Perhaps things will change when they launch the US server but for now im staying a hell far away from this game and just prey that maybe one day it catches my intrest to play. Cause the concept still is a nice one and im a bit tired of all the themepark wanna be WoW MMORPG's.

    Banning people for having Il (iL) in their names i find weird. You can create normal names with those letters and its really weak to say you have to delete your char. Would be something if Blizz would do that on RP servers where you see people with lvl 80's having names like "Deathrogue" and blizz telling them "Yeah you can't have that name on a RP server...so....delete your char...yup we know you worked hard for it...but do we look like we give a damn about you?". Atm the game really gives the idea that they don't care about the game nor the players...this is just from all the bad things i been reading about it, sorry for those who enjoy the game and see it the total different way, im sure there are nice things in it aswell. Like the politics between guilds and the wars..that must be awesome yes.

    I can remember back in DAoC the wife and I named our Inf's Fuukyu and Fuukmi

    Within 72 hours we log in and our new Inf names were Fugiowah and Fogiowah.

    We did it as a joke and it seemed the devs had a even better joke on us. We just laughed at our new names. Still played the toons as well.

     

    I have had my name forcefully changed in quite a few MMO's.

     

    So this step by the DFO devs just seems Sofa King We Todd Did.

     

    Anyway, who knows anymore what these guys are doing, I don't even think they know anymore.

    So permanently banning people for having these names and NOT allowing them to change their name instead is fine with you?  wtf?

  • javacjavac LondonPosts: 1,175Member

    i love it. idiots who make chars with stupid names get pwned. it's exactly how it should be.

     

    another victory for zero idiot tolerance.

     

    in before yet more crying from the carebear crowd.

    of course. you'd only name your char that way if you were a dumbass kid. the fewer dumbasses in the game the better.

    Carebear?  Is that your defense?  Are you that ignorant?

     

    So they have no clue how to code their shitty game so they start banning people instead of allowing them to change their names.. wtf are you people smoking?

    Answer my question please... Do you care if they permanently ban people because they don't know how to code their shitty game to allow name changes?  Or why don't the devs change their names automatically to random names?

     

    Please stop trying to defend this game... its not working...
