    god i hope there are not 60000 active subs.. the servers only support up to 10k people and thats not been tested since the very early days of Darkfall lol..

     

    I can imagine the queues now LOL...

    I agree with you but I wouldn't be surprised if we are proven wrong, simply because there are lots of us players who are searching or waiting for the next big game.

    OH man, The fan hype!! Haven't y'all learned from every other game released this year? Will it save the world - NO. Will it be the best - REMAINS TO BE SEEN. Will it be the worst - REMAINS TO BE SEEN. Guys, we went through this with SWTOR, TSW, TERA, GW2.... Please don't hype just for the sake of hyping.

     

    Let's wait before putting in all the FANBOI hyperbole. Not a hater but waiting to see..........

    The hype's mainly coming from those of us that know what's coming, it's been a long time since 2010(Unholy Wars) was announced and post that announcement many drifted away with issues like the wipe, which came to be.

    But now that the game is nearly here, people are stoked to know they will soon be slaughtering one another in a fresh Agon. Whether those who didn't like or never tried vanilla DF will find it as fun, that will come in time, but the game already has a solid player base that is itching to get in, thus the high hype on mmorpg.com and the reason it hit the mark on steam greenlight in a matter of days.

    I would not bet on it LOL.. Performance in darkfall could be pretty horribe even with the few hundred people left playing towards the end.. You would get lag everytime someone came close to your location so you would know someone was close by..

     

    Also the devs have not said anything about the amount of players the servers can hold, we will take a guess and still say 10k but im pretty sure if there was 10k people on the server it would go pop.. plus they ahve made the world smaller so maybe the have reduced the player limit as well..

    Doesn't matter. Unless it is from the developer or a gaming site review, I am of the opinion that it is overstated, plain and simple by the fans. It happened with all the other games released for the last 2 years, this will be no different.

    G'luck finding a fair reviewer of DF, as most seem to be of the WoW generation and therefore have no basis in which to form an honest review of a product created for those that enjoy old generation MMO rulesets, eurogamers original review springs to mind, 3/10...

    i heard that was caused from them trying to patch the load lag and possible downgrading the servers to save money. and the total land base is close to what it was in the first darkfall

    Except those players all still remember the original Darkfall. Unless you're placing your hope on all the 12 year olds who finally got access to the internet this year ( and very few 12 year olds don't have internet access as it is ), there's noone else who hasn't heard of, and ignored, Darkfall already.

    EA CEO John Riccitiello's on future microtransactions: "When you are six hours into playing Battlefield and you run out of ammo in your clip, and we ask you for a dollar to reload, you're really not very price sensitive at that point in time...We're not gouging, but we're charging."

    Too many unanswered questions, not enough intel, hardly any videos on the game........... pretty high hype sensation there.

    So far we know it lacks pve, no indepth crafting, housing (?), but its labeled as a sandbox. PVP doesnt make a sandbox the freedom to do what you want when you want does.

    Still on the fence for this one. Ill wait a week or two after launch.

     

    it has housing and lots of PVE.  why would you just make up shit like that?

    The End
    ---------------------------
    i don't expect to like Darkfall, altho i may like it MORE than other MMOs. i know it is gonna have a very frustrating level of grind to it, even if its significantly less than most. waiting for a pure FAST action virtual world. dice rolling & character levels (even "skills") IN COMBAT should have never carried over from pencil & paper to a computer that can reasonably model 3D spaces and objects

  • corpusccorpusc Chattanooga, TNPosts: 1,330Member

    Onomas,

    there IS a lot of intel.  and there's even an easy to use site that lets you dig WAY back into the information flow over the years.

     

    dfstuff.com

     

    now study up before you make unfounded proclamations about the game

    The End

    As a DF1 and UO player I am very hyped as I know what we had and look forward to the improvements.

    It will be nice to get obsessed with a gaming world again, one where your guild actually matters.

    My wife, she isn't so hyped heh.

    Playing: ESO, Submerged
    Favourite games have been: UO, Lineage2, WoW, Darkfall, Lotro, GW2

    My prediction is it'll be dead in about 3-4 months due to the immaturity of the community now a days chasing off new players that keep the game going. DF doesn't interest me much, I played the first one and thought it was total garbage, though I did play it early so it may have been all the bugs that ruined it for me. Just a word of advice: this is to the greifers, if you see a new player, don't pk them a ton, because it'll just end up turning them off from the game and they will end up quitting, it happens in many pvp based games. Then the game will just bleed subs and die off within about 3 months.

    Honestly though if the devs were smart though would have made the game free to play, because that way no matter how shitty or bad the game is, it usualy keeps getting new players. I'd want to play DF:UW but I am not willing to buy it after how horrible the first game was when i tried a trial. Maybe a freemium type system where people who sub get increased skill gain rate and such, and maybe some other perks. Sub based mmo's aren't really making it anymore in todays market, look at lotro for example, it did poorly so they had to make it f2p, and once they did, they had more active players and were making much more money than when it was sub based.

    Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:

    A. Proven right (if something bad happens)

    or

    B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)

    Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!

    I'd say they would be lucky to get 10k, 5k more realsitically, the market for games like DF is very VERY small. The devs would probally make more profit by making the game f2p, with a option to sub for perks, maybe have a few non-p2w items in a cash shop. I'd play DFUW if you could only have stuff that is not equipped looted. Sorry but, you guys spout about how you like being able to loot others, but I bet when you get looted it really annoys you, because now you have to get new items.

    Yawn...The first Darkfall lasted over 3 years and I doubt the community has changed in the last month. image

     

    Also, UW will also be the test bed for the pending Asian client.  So given the millions $ invested, I highly doubt UW will be closing in the next few months.

    Please let it launch in time first. :P Then let us play it for 4-6 months. Then we´ll have a better grasp on how good it is.

    Could you been any more misinformed? Darkfall 1 sold over 150,000 copies with almost  500,000 players trying the trials over the last 3 years.

    High sub numbers have nothing to do with game quality (Not directed to you Mr. Cakes).

    Uh huh.

    And out of those 150k copies sold, how many even made it through the first 30 days before leaving, never paying a sub?

    Out of those 500k trials, how many actually bought the game afterwards? Obviously not very many, if 500k tried the game, but 150k was the total copies sold over the games lifetime.

    Once again, this has nothing to do with the quality of the game.  Say what you will about the game but Darkfall had pretty high retention rates.  It was really only the grind that was getting to people as well as people deciding to sit out and wait for the highly touted successor, Unholy Wars.
