Former long time Asheron's Call Darktide player (open world, loot drop, full pvp). I remember when Darkfall came out ( DF 1 ) Probably 25-30% of the Darktide population including well known top players dropped out to play the NEXT-GEN full drop open world PvP MMO.
I held off, at the time I believe I was strapped for cash (not anymore) and I heard about how fail a launch it was. Like terrible terrible, launch, servers down constantly etc.
Years later I tried the free trial, read up on it (Was missing Darktide) and heard it turned into a fairly decent game, the problem being the huge grind gap in players. I logged in, and kinda thought it was neat but was met with a fairly empty world, by this tim ethe game was fairly old, and decided the grind gap wasn't interesting me. So I just stopped playing.
I heard about DF:UW about 3 months ago, I've been following it weekly, I havent seen as much information out on it as I'd like, and other than watching youtube videos of DF1, I don't know a ton about the game. The whole Naval battles thing doesn't interest me, as I primarily enjoy PvE/Ground based PvP/ and the idea of building a city sounds pretty cool.
I guess my question is, is there ANY end game PvE announced for this game, is there like epic loot or sweet items to always be seeking, or is it mostly tier loot everyone tries to get the same exact items, and when you die sometimes you lose them and then farm more.
I guess can someone (esp. if you played Darktide) eloborate on the pro's / con's on DF:UW as we can tell, what the PvE will be like, is there dungeons/caves? I guess im kinda wanting a open world, traditional type MMO with open PvP. But Darkfall from what I've seen is like a gimmicky FPS with a huge open world, and some random monsters all over.
And lastly, how much better do people thing DF:UW will be over DF1, because basically DF1 wasn't much of a success.
