- The UI is incredibly more streamlined and user friendly, on top of that you can actually adjust sizes for each bar and customize which was a must for me when I previously played.
- The skills system is so much more creative now and makes playing around with prowess more fun than upsetting. Before your choices were so limited, now you have the freedom to do basically anything you want ala "Elder Scrolls".
- They must have fixed some of the latency issues because my FPS is through the roof even in major cities with tons o people, and im even running on a slower internet connection than I was last year when I played.
- THE COMMUNITY - Aside from the occasional annoying troll there has been a huge improvement in the state of the community as a whole. The general chat is actually full of people talking and not bitching or tryhard trolling. This added with the new Mentor system really helps bridge the former gap that put every player in their own seperate hate bubble waiting to be burst.
Honestly Ive just scratched the surface of the game again, theres still alot I have to relearn and I still have a ton of work to do fleshing out my skills but it feels like a refreshing start to me, and that the game HAS actually made progress. When you look at how stagnant most AAA games are, how similar the core-gameplay feels even with tons of updates added, and then look at darkfall; you see that the developers actually took feedback and made some real changes.
I hope more people start joining because this is honestly the best MMO on the market in my opinion right now, if anyone wants to join me for starting a new char, just message me here or PM me. Im going to be starting up again with a friend in couple hours and having some more new adventurers would be fun as hell!
Happy Hunting Guys!
