It is worth noting they've recently confirmed that DF:UW is FREE for people who brought the original game.
Originally posted by Yamota 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.
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.
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.......
Yes, I will.
DF has been the best MMO that has come out now since 1999.
You stay sassy!
Originally posted by Tamanous 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.
Previous launch was still the most fun I have had on an MMO since I quit Everquest.
In a world of sharp knives, you would be a spoon.

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.
----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.
Originally posted by Ackbar 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.
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.
I voted yes,
but i ment: Fuck, Hell Yea
Wa min God! Se æx on min heafod is!
