    I wan ted to like DFO but the UI is so terrible, I want to see what their going to do with it before i re-sub.

    This game has the worst, most poorly made User Interface of any game, single or multiplayer, that I have ever played.  Love the concepts in the game but it needs a graphical and UI overhaul, and I'm sure a lot more things I don't know because I haven't played it long term at all.

    The best mmo on the maket that nobody has ever heard of and nobody plays? You still can not even find a review for the game from professional sites like IGN and Gamespot. image

    IGN does have a "review" of DarkFall http://vault.ign.com/View.php?view=editorials.detail&id=225

     

    That being said, I think since the whole EuroGamer review fiasco, most review websites have chosen to avoid Darkfall....that and DarkFall doesn't advertise so they don't bother with the game either, let alone give it a good "7.5-8.5/10" score that all games they've advertised on receives.

     

    Nonetheless, DarkFall is far from being the "best MMORPG" out there, and if AV don't change the way they work, it will never be.

    Darkfall is not a MMORPG, it is a AAFPA. (Arcade Action First Person Adventure)

     

    Theree is no role playing, it's an arcade game.

    This.  IGN and Gamespot won't even acknowledge this game's existence with anything other than a page with no image and a one sentence description of what the product was supposed to be.

    Thats not a review. I clearly says Hands On Preview / First Impression as the title.

    Followed up by the single best advertisement against Darkfall to date.  Fortunately for your genre, your kind is the reason why games like this will never become successful enough to destroy the path of the MMO industry.

    What fool stays in one spot for 3 hours farming a mob? Of course you'll get your stuff taken if you play like that. Rule number 1 of Darkfall, Bank early bank often, rule number 2 of Darkfall, first learn rule number 1.

    Yeah it sure is the best MMO, that is why there are so many people playing the game. Jokes aside, I think youre wrong.

    agree with opening poster..

     

    The only think is that none have the balls or patience to get into this game and start bashing the forums that it sucks.

     

    DARKFALL IS THE BEST

     

    for newcomers its a pain, but  we all learned it the hard way..

     

    DARKFALL IS ONE OF A KIND THERE IS NO BETTER SKILLED PLAYER COMBAT AROUND!!

    DFO isnt a game of skill.. its about levels.. and grinding abilities so you can push an I WIN button.. no skill required.. which is why.. the PVP players who do have skills.. don't play it.. why would they ? the game actively punishes skilled players by ignoring their abilities.. and that isnt even the worst indictment against the game... image

    isn't that why people are so proud of darkfall? Because its a FPS with a grind?  Planetside is what... 9 years old? Did It all way better.

    B: Half sandbox MMO? is this a new subgenre?

     

    C: People are proud of Darkfall beause people have a crazy desire to defend whatever game they are currently paying $15 a month for.

     

    D: Proud because it's the ONLY player skill based game out there? So darkfall is the best game when compared to... nothing else?  That sure is something to be proud of.

     

    The simple fact is, if you try to sell Darkfall as a sandbox MMO with FFA PvP and full loot, EVE is obviously a better game.  If you try to show off "player skill" and a FPS interface, Planetside is the clear winner.  You may enjoy it, but that doesn't make it the "best".

    that ain't levels

     

    you have attributes and spell stats

    Attributes are the bascis of your char.

     

    Spell stats are 1-100 which indicate how often you use  a spell and the dmg output.

     

    but your not getting my point:

    You can have a uber char in darkfall and still suck in pvp

     you can have a newbie char and kill vets chars in the game..

     

    Its not about the stats its about the skills of player and if any players say otherwise they either

     -  don't play the game

     - tried the trial and  gave up within the trial time

    So I find myself back at Darkfall Online yet again.  While the developers aren't the best dev team out there (probably one of the worst), they've still managed to create a game that keeps drawing me back to it.

    Yes, most gamers can't handle getting ganked by more developed characters.  We know this.  WoW has made most mmorpg players into wussies.  But for those of us gamers that CAN handle it and don't get butthurt, there simply isn't a better game on the market at the moment.

    Call of Duty?  Any FPS Shooter?  Any MMO that has the ability to kill people?  You are factually wrong on this point.  Getting killed is not the reason people can't handle games such as Darkfall.  There are many reasons, but this is not one of them.

    For one, there is no linear gameplay.  A friend of mine just joined and on his 2nd day I took him to a siege which he said was more fun than any mmo experience he's ever had.  And he's been playing mmo's since wow first released.

    So you took your friend to a siege that he couldn't participate in.  Well, not all of us like to watch.  I wonder what was so fun about it, can you elaborate?  I joined in guild in DF a while back and they took me out PvP'ing, it was boring.  All I did was follow people.  I was playing for a couple weeks and couldn't even hit people.  If I did, the damage was irrelevant.  Did I mention I was fighting mostly naked people?  I guess my experience was dramatically different.

    The FPS combat.  There's currently no mmorpg doing it.  It makes other mmorpgs simply boring.  You have to aim your arrows, aim spells, swing your sword in the right direction, etc.  It makes all the other tab-targeting games a snorefest.

    There is a few MMO's doing it.  Mortal Online immediately comes to mind.  This is purely an opinionated point which holds no actual proof.  Age of Conan has a very limited verson of aimed attacking.  While FPS combat sounds amazing, it only works well with shooters.  There is a reason why 98% if all MMO's go the third person or isometric(over the top) view, 98% of the gamers prefer it.

    Now the game does get old like any other game.  Like I said I'm coming back to it.  But it always feels great to come back to because it's just such a different game compared to everything out there.  I usually go about 3 months on and take a break for a month and then come back again.

    I'm glad you've found something that you enjoy. 

    The game is hard to get into due to lack of hand holding and in-game tutorials.  But there are tutorials on youtube that can show you the right direction for new characters.  So for all you lurkers out there that just enjoy reading these boards, try out Darkfall.  You'll like getting away from tab targeting.  And for everyone already playing darkfall, we already know it's the best out there.  Which is sad considering how slow the devs are lol.

    Gamers don't like games that are hard to play, and by hard I don't mean difficulty in in-game activities.  What I mean is that Darkfall and games like it are hard to play in basic functionality.  Figuring out key bindings and how to set them.  Figuring out skills in the game and what you need to progress.  Figuring out where main cities are.  How do use very basic commands in the game.  Spending a week trying to get used to a very user-unfriendly combat system compared to what we are used to.  Games such as Darkfall is harder to play than most, and not only because it is a full loot/FFA pvp gam (whch is usually the argument I hear).   I personally can't play it because it doesn't have a skill point cap.  It destroys economy because everyone can make anything if they want.  No replayability because of one character slot.  Characters become jack of all trades, not master of one, but master of all demi-gods.  I mean, the servers aren't even at half capacity.  That alone should tell you something.  I don't like the weird view perspective changes.  I don't like that it uses the old /command system that went out of style after EQ1 released.  The UI is simply ugly and unfinished. 

     

    That being said, I'm glad you found something you like.  It's not for me nor 96% of all gamers.  In fact, probably closer to 99.9% of all gamers.  I love sandbox.  It's just that no one has made a fantasy sandbox that can even shake a stick at Ultime Online.  That's 14 years people.  It would be great if some AAA developer gave us what we wanted.  Imagine what a AAA sandbox would be like.  Hard to imagine isn't it?  It hasn't happened in 14 years.

    Seconded. Also when planetside 2 comes out, if ever, it will be even moar better than the original is better i assume. however, i have not tried darkfall myself so maybe it is fun too. the world may never know.
