    It is worth noting they've recently confirmed that DF:UW is FREE for people who brought the original game.

    Dunno, have they revamped the UI and if so are there any screenshots/vids to see it? If not then no, otherwise yes.

    All new UI, only a couple of still screens taken from a video. More info needed really.

    No. Didn't like the original, but more power to those who enjoyed it.

    yes, the original DF1 was an awesome game with only a few very basic, but also very big, flaws( everyone was exactly the same, endless grind, huge nube/vet gap, horrible UI). Apart from those flaws the game it'self was very well made, and very fun to play.  from what they said most of that has been fixed, so this game should be a lot of fun.

    definately the funnes, most solid, open world fps mmo out to date.

    It also helps that i dont have to buy the whole game again...:P

    Hate to be a skeptic, but I will wait a few weeks to see if it's actually ready. They don't exactly have the best record of coming through with dates or good information, but thats a very long story.......

    The poll was to limited to answer.

    Those who didnt like the first one may want to try Unholy Wars as the entire game and interface will be vastly different. If they keep adding sandbox fluff it could be a long lasting game

    Been waiting to play since it was announced as Darkfall 2.0.

    i played DF for a year, although i had fun i left waiting for even the most basic and simplest of issues to get fixed. lack of support made me leave.

    maybe it will be free for me....and maybe not. but regardless i wont DL it till i see some reviews on how it has changed for the better or worse.......

    Nope, not my kind of game.  But I do hope they do it well and are successful for those that like this sort of ffa full loot stuff.  Everyone should have a couple good games to play.

    Yes, I will.

     

    DF has been the best MMO that has come out now since 1999.

    I'd try it out after launch but this company has not proven yet that they can launch a game smoothly. I will not partake in such a cluster-puck similar to their previous launch.

    You stay sassy!

    Previous launch was still the most fun I have had on an MMO since I quit Everquest.

    I will play because I'll gander a good guess and say there will be safe zones so it will attract many more players....

    No, I won't play after launch, or or any amount of time the game lasts. The first one was absolutely terrible, so a new version of a bad game doesn't give me much hope. Also, after being pure vaporware for about 8 years I don't see the 2nd one coming out until 2020. For all that do play it I hope you have a blast.

    Without any concrete informations and some gameplay videos to prove that the game will indeed be different than the 1st one and that most of the major issues are fixed, I won't try it at launch. The game is supposed to be released really soon (1 month right?) and we have no clue how the game looks like. This is the worst thing you can do when you released a "new" version of an old game that didn't do well.

    You are the minority. Most couldn't even buy the game let get into it. Those within it could very well have had fun ... unless you were a guild trying to obtain a base which were all grabbed by beta guilds first who exploited resource faming to developed the base dozens of times faster than anyone not knowing the exploits those guilds hid from the developers in beta (not that the devs would have had the time nor resources to fix it quickly).

     

    The issue will be: Can they actually sell/offer enough clients to meet demand? Will they have limited servers that cannot support the playerbase trying to get in? Will it be bug free enough to even play? Will it be a bot farming game like the original?

     

    I haven't seen enough from that company to know as of yet. If I see amazing beta or something it could change my mind.

    You stay sassy!

    No, it is likely to be very stressful at launch and, being the type of player I am, it would ruin my impression of the game. Overpopulated starting areas are bad in PvE games.. imagine them in a PvP game.

    What other time would you try it? If you don't get in and start exploiting right away you'll never catch up just like in DF.

    ----ITS A TRAP!!!----

    Yeah, I could imagine not getting the client would be frustrating.. don't know why it was so difficult... I was able to buy 2 copies the first day... just used 2 computers sat through a few seconds of lag and both went through.

     

    My clan never owned a city.. just a small village and we had to steal it of course.  I had fun during  the first war.  I remember one day we were fighting with some clans... the next we were now allies.  Great times.  Hopefully, they learned from previous mistakes and fix them this time.  The only issue I had with launch the first time was the exploiters had a huge advantage... oh well... I still had fun raising my skills up then fighting in war... win or lose.

    I still would start later. I don't fret over missing out on exploiting ... I hate to exploit. You still pick a racial group in the game and if there is little exploration and base locations left I'd just join a guild already established and benefit from their advancements anyway. At least the game would be more playable and with fewer bugs and exploits once some are fixed.

     

    I simply won't spend money on a game that hasn't proven itself yet. Again, this could all change if I tried some beta testing and was satisfied. This is an indi-company which is always worth our support but their history for efficient development of content is flakey at best. I need to know if it is actually a good game before I buy it.

    Since I don't have to re-buy the game, I will give it a shot.  When I quit I went out with a bang and raided a city by myself with a bunch of stuff on me but mainly a large villa deed.  The person who looted me was very happy, as we talked a bit afterwords.
  • AethaerynAethaeryn Kitchener, ONPosts: 1,973Member Uncommon
    I would even if I had to rebuy the game.  I liked the first one and have considered going back.  I am slightly more into PvE than PvP as well.

    Wa min God! Se æx on min heafod is!
