I have been playing DFUW for about 3 weeks now. I do have a life, married, work 50 hours a week etc. I have spent my time in DFUW with a buddy leveling up our characters together. I have done things such as afk harvest and craft while cooking dinner, watching TV, or even playing another game to help build my toon.
The game is rather large, the thrill of going past the safe zones once you complete the initial monster feats and the danger of getting killed is something that drives me to keep playing. I have died a few times and pulled off some miraculous escapes during my time so far.
My character is now nearing completion of a first spec. I had joined a clan initially and watching/listening to their coms this whole time has been exciting. I finally grew up enough in DFUW to head out the Clan City and enjoyed a night of PvP. Everything from ships coming at us to various groups of other clans banding together against us. I engaged in the pvp, sat back and watched tactics and learned, and look forward to a whole lot more.
I think this game is for those who have patience and wish to enjoy it one step at a time. It took me just over three weeks to feel comfortable enough to join my clan mates and engage in some serious pvp and I do not regret one minute of it. I think this game does get a bad rap as people tend to rush into things and want to get out there and pvp within the first couple of days. This game just does not work that way. You gotta focus on building your character, interact with friends, and eventually you will be ready to take part in the real fun.
Playing with a friend really does help, gives you an extra set of eyes out in the danger zones, speeds up the spawn rates of spawn points, and gives you someone to talk with while you grind away and shaping your toon. Very impressed with this version of DFUW. I did play the original for a couple weeks but for a working man that just seems out of the ballpark to make up ground. Like I said this is a very good game for the patient at heart. Thrilling adventure so far!
