I've never played the original DF, but I have done my tiny bittsy fair share of research.
- AV did not directly cater to the masses
- AV wasn't known for being very communicative (compared to other companies and consumer expectations)
These two factors are very broad and many examples within can further narrow it down to how they see it fit to run their progression. I have this ugly feeling inside my belly that they might want to hold off on sales to new players before launch. One of the reasons could be to discover how many vets that are actually returning vs server capacity (as there are only one server in each region). Even in the original launch sales were shut off for some period of time (months), some due to technical issues, but still something worth noticing. The past is the past, game systems have changed, while the company seemes to remain status quo.
I have been secretly happy about the launch that is closing the distance, while this feeling inside me keeps on growing. Anyone given any thoughts about this?
