LOL "January, after the holidays"
Grats AV. I will not buy anthing untill full releaser.. good luck. see everyone in a few months.
The way mmo's were: Community, Exploration, Character Development, Conquest.
The way mmo's are now : Cut-Scenes,Cut-Scenes, solo Questing, Cut-Scenes...
No great surprise lets face it.
It's never great to miss a deadline, but I'd rather they took a bit longer and ironed out most of the issues than just panic rush it out.
"Come and have a look at what you could have won."
The game is delayed AGAIN.
You get to pay to BETA test our game even if you bought the original game day one! (Anyone remember that fiasco?)
Could care less personally, stopped playing long ago. People bitch about companies like SoE, EA, Funcom, Blizz, Bio, whoever you're mad at this week; this has got to be the worst track record of any company I've seen for missing deadlines and just missing the mark in general.
I'm not going to go back and look, but didn't Tasos use the phrase "firm ETA" once before...you know, right before the last time the date slipped?
For some strange reason, I just can't stop laughing...
Lol fuck that... Been looking forward to it.
What I get from the article is basicly that they are delaying the launch so it can be ready to be on steam. The beta thing is just a cover up for this. If they wanted to involve the players they would have done so a LONG time ago and not the day before the 'launch'
I may buy the prerelease or not sure yet, might wait until after reviews come out. Age of Wushu beta is coming again on the 20th so I will be there also.
They seem to treat their fans like they mean nothing, throwing them shit excuses one after another.
By not having an official beta, the release could have been a disaster. With potential exploits in a FFA pvp full loot game it would have killed whatever potential this game might have had for a resurgence.
This news is good news. Cooler heads prevailed.
Precisely, why release early if not ready and have fans and customers complain?
Release it when it's ready.
ETA is estimated time of arrival. Just saying.
Guess I should have quoted ... LOL.
Before starting this post, I am a HUGE fanboy of Darkfall...been playing it and always will, imo its the best game ever made. Aventurine is a great company when it comes to development...for the owpvp player, its great.
Okay,...that said, Aventurine is the WORST company when it comes to their communication and ability to hit timelines. For example, they pushed the game back once already...whatever shit happens. At least they told us 4 days ahead of time. Now the push the game back the day of launch (Greece time). Then say we can play beta in a week...lol, how does that make sense, we should be able to play beta tomorrow? But the problem is their communication is sad...and blaming it on steam is just funny. More fail for the game I love...how they haven't learned the importance of communication yet is beyond me.
Incognitowww.incognito-gaming.us"You're either with us or against us"
To be somewhat fair to Aventurine, it's possibly one of the first time where their reason for the delay makes sense.
Usually they'd say "Oh, our staff was sick" or "Can't get to office, protests and shit". Now they're delaying to actually have the players test the game before a Steam release, which is a valuable argument to delay a launch.
That delay was still pretty obvious though, it's AV we're talking about. This time however I "think" they can get the game running on the 17th....except if it crashes pretty badly because their servers can't handle it.
Still won't be buying the game though, Aventurine has a LOT to prove to regain my trust in their brand.
------Your daily dose of common sense since 2009!
anyone who cares anything about this game knew it was going to be delayed even tho we all wanted it on the 12th
also whats funny to me is it went from Release !!!!!! to BETA! the fuck ?
They are delaying the full game release to start a beta next week lol. I get that delays happen but this game should of been slated initally for a Jan. Feb. release 2013 (clearly it was never even close to being ready to go tomorrow).
All that said I agree with those of you saying this delay is for the best given its clear the state of the game is NOT ready for launch.
What I cannot understand is why not just be honest about this in September - October 2012, would of gone down alot better?

Edit. And don´t 4get. Now you also have to PAY to test it... Epic freaking fail.
