    Lol sure...The new and improved Darkfall has half the features as its predecessosr.

     

    DF-UNHOLY WARS... the first "expansion" in history to remove features.

    I would agree, other than the fact its a new game, all new coding, etc.  Sure if it was an expansion using the same coding...that wouldl make sense, but its all new and built from the ground up.

    Its based on the same engine,similar mechanics and was planned to be an expansion. The fact still remains it will have less features than the game its replacing.

    The coating is player manufactured via a special form of weightlifting, the clean and jerk.  It takes 20 or more players to make a hull resistant.  There is a special skill involving assisting a player to get it to work more quickly.  This also creates a bond between two or more players that will be used more further on down the road with other ventures.

    As far as fishing goes, the seamen will take care of that.

    So its another version of the "Meat Wall"? Wont there be a shortage of Seamen given the very limited ships planned for release?  I need my Lobster Bisque

    There is never a shortage of seamen.  They replenish themselves daily, from the dregs of society * and scrotums* to be obvious.

     

    Alright back on topic....nothing wrong with a developer having a release date, then realizing something is imbalanced and deciding to delay said part of the game.  It's a fairly small company that has done he best they could and did in fact hold ten thousand subs from what I have read.  If it doesn't work out then it will die off.  No worries.

    No one will be building these items for months. You're in SBA and you still think this is a problem? Did you not play EU1 release? Many guilds rushed to build these items and it still took them months, people won't be rushing near as much now. 

    The land siege and the larger ships were never used in DF1 except by people who were ridiculously rich months into the game. Removing them from the game until they're reworked is a far better option than not having them at all.

    When features turn out to be crap it's best to remove them and rework them rather than slowly tweak them, that's been proven in the short history of MMO's and still goes on today(ie. FFXIV)

    O good im not the only one who relised this lol, Also seige equipment wont be required to much at the start till everyone egts there city walls up which took quite a while for alot of the guild in DF,  atleast the guilds that didnt exploit bugs nonstop, withany luck there wont be many bugs like that again in DFUW.

    The problem is the pace in which AV has a history of patching the game.

     

    There is a good chance it will be years and by then people will be pissed that currently are not.

     

    I think it is lame to take something out and promise to add it back in.  Sounds like every year of EA sports Madden football.

      Given AVs track record, you cant count on those being in place when the players are ready for them.
