Except that Darkfall: Unholy Wars is going to be a lot different than Darkfall 1.0..... I'd rather them do it this way than try to have a million people try it now since they've done nothing with 1.0 and put all of their focus on Unholy Wars...
I think you are right. They underestimate the market expectations by toying with them with free content.
They give away a game for free, then people can run private servers later if they like it more than the new version.
The benefit of the older version is the older graphics probably handling more loads of info than the new and more detailed game of DH 2.0 as well.
Also people who invest thier time into a similar product will not want to try something slightly better without there being enough content to justify it. The thing is do they have that content?
For example tournamnets in the game, player held events, Guilds builds affection with NPCs and the devs/mods shapping events of NPCs getting involved with alliances or not, world events, new and different content that makes a game worht investing time into with specific rewards such as a house, or a story in the MMO. And I hope they have the goods.
Player made content can be big as well, and how they allow that to happen. I am not sure devs can compete with the idea of a private server too well, and that could be a problem. And they should have a lot of unique content to prevent that from happening.

I can't post in darkfall forums because I'm not an active member, and I can't login and play, it says "Account is not active"
Is anybody else having this problem? Shouldn't I just be able to log in and play now since it's free? I don't see any free subscription item in the shop and I never saw a code, am I missing something?
I just wanna play some free darkfall till Unholy Wars is out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
You can post in the public forums, or send a message to support.
If you had a Darkfall account in the past, it should just be active, nothing else necessary. Hm.
Go figure, I would be the only one having this problem. I had an active account two seperate times for months. And ya, I can't post in their forums about it either to get help. I already sent a ticket in, but who knows when they will get back to me, it might be like.. 24 hours! Doubt I can wait that long, I'll probably find some other similar game to play and.... wait that won't happen.
I can't post in the forums, won't let me log in. EDIT: won't let me post, I can log in.
is there a place to DL if I dont have it installed anymore?

If it was a trial account no. You had to buy the client at some point to play. If you did... I am not sure both my accounts work.. the trials account I had does not.
Join Dragonbound for the rest of 1.0! Or Join up to come with us into 2.0!
Tons of vets going into 2.0, will have over 30 people to start.
I dont even want to play for free. Just shut it down and use the resources for DF2.
Although...a massive fight with whoevers left woud be cool. Maybe DF2 could turn off all the rules and give everyone max level everything, every wep and infinite consumables.
Within 2 hours of starting a new toon I had lesser magic to 70, axes and swords to about 50, sprint and run near 50, archery near 50.
Originally that would have taken me a month.
Also had someone at Monkfield bank offer me gear.
Best fun I've had in ages, far and away the best PVE on the market.
Going to enjoy this month.
Playing: Diablo 3 and Black Desert Other favourite games have been: UO, Lineage2, WoW, Darkfall, Lotro
Is weird. The account I used originally at Eu launch works. The account I made for NA works. Only account that does not work is my free trial account I never bought the game on.
No clue why your accounts would not work if they were once active accounts. Did you try going into the account page? The only thing that they said would prevent an account that was paid for was if it was not in good standing.
well my account is working its just on the eu server i didnt relise i hadn transfered it yet. but my old character is gone which isnt the bigest deal when iam really just waiting for 2.0.
i did just try to switch over to na to make sure i was able to play 2.0 on na server and not eu
I started it up last night for the first time in over a year. I forgot how the controls worked. My old character was also not there, but I didn't care. Started up a human and had a good time playing for about three hours.
Since I played last I have a much bigger monitor (1920X1080) and had a hard time adjusting with max settings because everything was so big. Tough when you get used to the different perspectives of other MMO's.
Looking forward to Nov 20th.
