Don't bother looking for honest answers at the official forums. Because all you'll get is people telling you the game is great, loads of fun, big population etc, when that is very far from the truth. Look here or the steam forums for input from current players on both sides of the spectrum.
I was summarily executed for this post, in a thread where a potential player asked for the good and bad so they can make an informed decision to drop the $40 to try it, on the official forums:

We have noticed that this conversation has run its course and that is has now become the ground for flaming and trolling.
Hence that is why i will be closing this thread to prevent it from being further flammed and derailed.
Who's flaming and trolling? All I see are people posting their opinions and how they experience the game. Just because the opinions are negative of both DFUW and AV doesn't mean its trolling and need to be closed.
A discussion begins and ends when the posters decide it, not when moderators decide they dont like what theyre seeing. You can kill off the thread, but you can't kill off te discussion. Locking/deleting threads here has an even worse affect than if you just would have left it alone: posters seek out other venues to voice their frustration and end up showing DF/AV in a negative light to people who probably would of never of heard of it.
And you probably dont know that its extremely difficult to turn around a gamer that has a negative viewpoint of DF cause he heard this or that sucks on his pokemon offtopic forum, than a fresh gamer that never heard od DF.
In essence, it has been the mods/gms/devs that have created this supposedly toxic environment that they are now trying to get rid of using all the same methods they used to create it.
That is pure [and unadulterated] insanity.
Personally I will not play anything that comes from AV again. I've been following Darkfall since 2005 and they have always done things that go against the community and what they want, but this just takes the cake. They have culled every post and thread from their forums that has any type of bad talk against AV/DF. And its in my humble opinion that if a company will not let people have their say, whether good or bad but at leasts its honest, then that is not a company worth supporting.
Potential players: stay away until AV decides they want to be honest and upfront with their playerbase rather than acting like Germany circa 1940.
Have a good one!
