    YES!!!! I will 100% be there at launch hopefully! I played DFO as well....but....I liked the game....but when I was trying to get into it....it was a wasteland....I ran into so few people It felt like a single player game and i Just left....if the population stays up in this game I'll stay too! Ah.....can't wait! ^^

    Yeah, definitely.

    Hope the first few months of this launch are as amazing as the first one, some of my best MMO memories there. I just hope this time that the game is deep enough, and bug/cheat free enough so that everyone sticks around and we have an awesome sandbox!

    The villages connected to holdings system sounds amazing.

    Watching: Albion Online: Summer alpha was great, but the game seems to be progressing towards heavy instancing.

    Always hating on instances in MMOs! Open worlds, open PvP, territory control and housing please. More persistence, more fun.

    Yeah was definitely a good time.  Hopefully, they learned from the first launch what they need to do to prevent exploiting/macroing this time.

     

    Although I did hate their loot system especially once macroers scripted it.

    Definitely. Aside from the problems within the game, biggest of all what seemed to be a complete lack of doing anything about exploiters who were ruining the game unhindered for months on end, it was some of the best fun Ive ever had. One of the main reasons I left in the 1st place was because my PC at the time with a crappy Radeon HD 2400 prevented me from being able to do much of anything in PvP especially in large battles. More than a few people fighting together and my FPS was dropping to 10, maybe 20 if I was in an area with fewer trees and stuff. Usually resulted in me attempting to hit a few people with AoEs while my screen stuttered for a few seconds before I died.

    Luckily Ive got a much better PC with an AMD FX 4100 and a GTX 560 Ti now and wont have to worry about that happening so looking forward to causing some mayhem in DFUW.

    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.......

    It should cost you only your first month subscription to find out - less than a night at the movies :)

     

    I know I really want to play from the start just to enjoy the experience of it all.  Sure without adequate stress testing there will be issues, server side patches, "woopsie" issues (remember in Darkfall 1.0 where some of the NPCs spoke Greek rather than English?  Woops!), nearly all MMOs have such things. 

     

    But to pick up a scickle and try to get my first steedgrass to make my first horse, and go exploring in the new world ... that I want to do.  I don't want a game that holds my hand and tells me how to level up to 90 and then gives me the gear to defeat the dungeon boss to get the gear to raid to defeat the raid boss for the achievement.  I want to get on my horse, ride towards the hills, and see what is on the other side - without knowing what, or who, is there.

    Nope, I know AV too well to expect a launch without horrendous hiccups, I will be keeping an eye on the progress though.

    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

    I agree completely.

     

    DF was the best MMORPG experience I've ever had in spite of  the huge and glaring flaws. 

     

    For me, it's the closest I've ever seen an mmorpg get to the Elder Scrolls in terms of combat and exploration.   Archery, is for me, the best example of this.  I found so many amazing things exploring and had so much fun as a solo player in a game that is clan-based at its core. I did get to participate in some sieges and it was amazing fun. 

     

     

    There are some d-bags in the game, but what game isn't like that? I met far more cool players (helpful) than jerks in DF than in any other game I've played.  I've played a lot of games, too. 

     

    I loved the fact that I could build a raft and go exploring remote islands and prosper by finding "easter eggs" out there. Exploration can yield great rewards. You can also get ganked and lose it all. It's just awesome.

    I never tried the original because I had heard of all the macro'ing and crap you'd have to do just to be able to compete, and first person view is a big no for me. If the new one isn't first person view I may keep an eye on it and try it out after the reviews from players is in a few months out.

    Only archery and spells are done in 1st person view, melee combat is 3rd person.

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.

     

    after being released for 3 years, there's STILL such a die hard hater as to bring up the word vaporware.  lol

    Some people cant help but throw around terms theys aw other people use while having absolutely no clue what they mean.

    I guess considering it was vaporware and never existed, so he never played it which brings us to... How do you know it was terrible if you never played it?

    Yep, enjoyed the first one, can't wait for UW.

    I would think you would want only 1st person view for a game like this.  I would think it would make it more realistic and would allow you to be snuck up on.  I haven't played the first Darkfall but if I was in 1st person view all the time I would be paranoid about what, or who, could be sneaking up behind me and would be looking around at all times.  I would think 3rd person view would take away from the hardcore aspect of the game.  I'm looking forward to trying it regardless.
  • CaldrinCaldrin CwmbranPosts: 4,533Member Uncommon

    hell yeah ill be playing it...

    the first few months of Darkfall was amazing, sure there was bugs and other isseus but some of the battles where just massive.

     

    You had 3rd person view for melee and normall moving around, but it was not zooned out very far so yeah you could get snuck up on and i think that was the idea behind it..

    A lot of first person view games can give me a siezure. Very few of them won't. Like Planetside 1 first person view didn't bother me at all, Planetside 2 though it does and gave me a siezure trying to play it, so I cannot play it when it comes out. I'd prefer to not have to try out a game in first person to see if it's going to make me ill. Nothing against DF, I just can't play a lot of first person view games. As for the sneaking up on you part, I played Dark Age of Camelot and it wasn't first person view and people could still sneak up on you and the game was very exciting, you never knew who would pop over and kill you while you were out in the frontiers killing mobs.

    The third person is a very close third person, it's not one where you can scroll out and look around. It's a fixed camera not far behind the character. You still have to look around constantly to make sure you're not being stalked. The new sound system should make the game truly epic for anyone running around solo.

    The only time you can really pan the camera around is when you're on a mount or sailing a ship.

    This is a video of the older DF1.0 game, may want to turn the audio off. It shows the combat in first person, third person, and ship combat from the captains view. Once again the game will have new graphics, surround sound system, user interface, spell system, etc etc etc, you can find much more info at forums.darkfallonline.com.

    That doesn't look real shaky or quirky, I may actually get to try the game out. Will have to keep an eye on it for new gameplay videos to see if I'm going to be able to try it out for myself. I did have to turn it down though, my goodness, that guy's voice......

    Better than the original I would say :D

     

    Also, of course I will be trying it out, anything else would be an outrage!

    I played the original for a couple of months, but didn't like it that much. Maybe I'll come back to check UW, but won't be at launch for sure.
