Darkfall 1.0 at launch was one of my top gaming experiences. I'm not talking day 1, or even week 1, but the first couple months.
I almost quit after a few days. It was cumbersome and seemed like a massive waste of time trying to get geared. Starting out sucked, even with Ultima and early EQ PVP loot server experience. I ended up playing Darkfall on and off for the years. I would haev been a dedicated player if it wasn't for the lack of updates and dwindling community, the game was solid even as it was... just stale for old players and not accessible for new players.
With the new launch it starts over again. Even if nothing changed it would be a rewarding and engaging gaming experience. I don't have strong faith in AV's updates or ability to keep the game alive, but I am definitely in for the first few months and I expect to have great time. Can't wait for this.
I can't even consider any other games on the horizon. The golden era of MMO's is definitely long over, but this game gives players and communities a chance to grow with the game and create something, not just watch something happen while trading their time for gear and character statistical status.
If you didnt play Darkfall, play the relaunch and dont give up your first week. It's supposed to be easier now to start out, who knows. But it's hard at first and then it gets very easy and natural. Some days are more relaxing and some days are intense. It's a worthwhile gaming experience.
