    this is actually a good thing ppl! Means they must have found bugs/or sumthign they wernt happy with and need more time to tweak it. ALSO its good for me cuz then ill have money to buy it :p

    Why do ppl think when a game gets postponed its a bad thing?

    At this point i HOPE they postpone it to next year...gives them more time to tweak it.

    Well i know my chickens and that they supbar to other developer ...not only they have no clue about sandbox design they also miss any  deadline...

     

    Im glad they made the right choice they had an option  release it befor they felt its was right because of a dead line or push it back and release it when it was ready regaurdless of a dead line. im sure they did there best to meet this dead line but decided to not release it on the 20th.

    Well they did that with the original Darkfall for like 4 years...and well, that turned out fasntastic.

     

    I was one of the ones who followed that game like a diehard for 6 years.   It has left a bitter taste in my mouth for all MMO developers who make promises.

    People said it would never last.  Several years later its still running.

    People said it would never grow.  Well there is this relaunch/new version coming.

    Defying all odds, AV manages to continue, where many others have failed.

    And no, I wasn't surprised at the date falling back, and am not getting my hopes  up for this new one.

    But when it finally does go live, I plan on being there.

     

    Yeah  !!!

     

    Wooooooooooooh !!

     

    Keep the dream alive bro

     

    Iiii-iiiiiit's.... me!!! *Hooray*

    I was wondering when you would finally make an appearance. Welcome back to the fray. The madness and days of Darkfall are upon us once again. God help us all.

    most people are like me and are disappointed because 1. they want to play the game, 2. they're tired of AV lying (missing a date, pushing it back, promising to release info but not, "gameplay" videos that arent even close to gameplay videos) they're all lies. 

    I personally can't wait for another developer to even come close to competing in this style of game, I'll be gone for good.

    Yeah i thought i 'd make an appearance, just for auld lang syne.

    But it's not fun anymore....

    It's like kicking a toothless paraplegic puppy............for the second time around............just waaaaaaay too easy.

     

    What about you ?

    Did you ever get around to ACTUALLY playing the game or are you still just wishing them well from far far far far far far far far far far...far far far far far...far , far away ? (and of course being condescending to people that simply don't like it) 

    Iiii-iiiiiit's.... me!!! *Hooray*

    Hell yes. I played Darkfall for two and a half years. Second best gaming experience I've had in 27 years of video gaming. This time around I'm going to be there from day one, can't bloody wait ;)

    Well seeing as DF : UW was originally supposed to be the expansion DF2010, and never came out I really doubt it's coming out any time near the pushed back date even.

    I know its hard to actually follow the development of Darkfall but in there defence they didn't pushed it back since 2010.

    First thing they planned was a new expansion after hellfreeze. The project name of this expansion was darkfall 2010. They were adding more and more stuff, one of these things are the new monoliths and village system. So they chnaged the project name to the offical expansion name Darkfall:Arena. While adding more of the stuff they wanted they  unfortunately hit more and more engine limitations. A good example are the enviromental sounds. With the old engine they had to place every sound zone manually which is a shit ton of work instead of adding sound areas or sound to certain objects. Another example are load lags which couldn't be solved without having crashes as we had at release. 

     

    So they had to change the engine and code it from scratch, this project was called Darkfall 2.0, an internal project name which changed later to the offical name Darkfall:Unholy Wars. so the decision to make a new game came while developing then ext expansion.

     

    All this could have been communicated much better but AV fails horrible in this part and another thing is that they simply didn't know themself what to do.

    Lets be realistic here people....the difference from DF and DF UW is:

    DF is old crapp, DF UW is new crap.

     

    If in almost a decade they made a crap mmorpg that was postponed many times to release as crap, do you really think now its going to be any different?

     

    The devs are the same, the money they got is the same ( none ), they are still amateur, they are still a small team, they are still a bunch of liars, we know nothing about the game, nothing...and it would release in a couple of days....

     

    They are not to be blamed....YOU ARE TO BE BLAMED,  yes you the person that supports and gives them attention.

     

    If everyone just looks at this game, and others like Mortal Online and laughs at the developers and sends a message that they are a friking joke, then maybe games like this will cease to exist.

    You are right about it being the same devs.  I really did love DF1 and have a lot of fond memores of my time there.  The thing that stands out to me is in 2010 I feel that Darkfall was at a tipping point.  People were starting to get their fill of Darkfall and were leaving/quiting.  The main complaints were that there were not enough sandbox features and Darkfall had become just a big pvp arena.  People were holidng out for the July expansion pack and it was supposed to have sandbox features which would renew interest in Darkfall.  The expansion/patch comes out and.....(drum roll)....we got funhulks.  That was their big sandbox feature. 

    Before that, I thought AV understood what the players were asking for.  Local banking and zone specific resources.  Better, more fleshed out crafting system.  Things unrelated to pvp.  Systems in place that added complexity and layers of depth.  Nope, we got funhulks.

  • thububthubub Moore, OKPosts: 58Member

    Ok, so wouldn't it be the best practical joke of all time if they just drop everything and never release.  To find out the new Darkfall: UW is actually vaporware, that would be amazing. 

     

    Seriously, who actually beleived it would release "on time".  There is no "on time" with Avertine.   12-12-12 will turn into 1st quarter 2013, then that will turn into July 1st release....  and so on, and so on.
