Originally posted by Shaike Originally posted by xpiher The game is only being advertised to the people who already own it because AV only has 2 servers that can only sustain 10k concurrent players, which means an avg of about 15k players from multiple time zones, or about 30-50k total. They probably won't sell it to the general public for at least the first month. To the poster above me, you will have to buy it. DFO didn't go sub only until development for that game stopped completely.
I cannot buy or play this game unless I have the original????
This is the dumbest decision I could think of (from a marketing point-of-view)
To hell with you - players and game - you don’t want me and I don’t want you
I will play other games who do want my money and time....
Judging by your outburst and Bartel Test signature,
DF-UW isnt the game for you anyway.
Originally posted by Noctie I want to buy this game but if they wont let new players preorder and play on launch day then i prolly wont bother, making a new char when everyone is already high lvl and knows the game sucks.

Go buy Darkfall now and set up a subscription when it releases. Pretty much a pre order, but AV really should show some professionalism and put a fucking PRE ORDER NOW! button on their website.. If people are willing to give their money away early take it before they change their mind.
omfg av suck no preorder, no stress test server will crash and no one login. This is update not new game they are stealing money. Bad sounds, bad animation, no panda's, no lasers. Indie company with bad support av suck omfg.
Not really. Be patient and wait for a potentially great fantasy sandbox pvp-centric mmorpg. I am sure going to give it a whirl anyway.
Originally posted by Kumate I am worried because the game is 3 weeks from launch. Why is it not available for preorder? Other then the blog videos there is no advertising. The game looks amazing and finally made it more streamline but the darkfall website is beyod basic, we have no information on how we are going to obtain our free copy being a former darkfall owner, and there is no way for people interested to purchase the game yet. Some people are going to be strapped for cash during the month of December (not me but just thinking from a financial perspective) and the earlier you get the pre-order ability out the better for AV. Anyone else Hyped, will be playing this for a long time if they hold true to what they have been advertising.
Here's my guess. Darkfall will run two servers. They are looking for that niche group that like their game, not a game community that will have 50 servers. Between the fan base that played Darkfall all the way till finish and the fan base that played Darkfall at launch and will come back and now the knew fan base that likes that Darkfall won't be quite as hardcore...they are probably really worried about the stress of the server and que times. They aren't going to add another server...won't happen and it shouldn't as after a few months niche games like this will thin out some and you'll find your real fan base. Just the present load will probably give us 4 hour que times, I really believe this. So, I think in some ways Aventurine is actually a little worried about to much success off the back.

Creating a new account asks for a serial key, no option to buy it, so that wont work.
WTF??? Really??? I cannot buy or play this game unless I have the original???? This is the dumbest decision I could think of (from a marketing point-of-view) To hell with you - players and game - you don’t want me and I don’t want you I will play other games who do want my money and time....
the game will be made available for anyone to purchase, it's just free + sub for anyone who already paid for DF1
Not sure why you take what you read in this forum so seriously though, if you want official news go to the DF website.
