    Funny thing is, they're saying preorders + beta test to be release on Dec 17 and estimated new release date in January and yet it's not their fault. This is obviously a lie lol. They feel that the game should be tested by the players and yet they use that excuse to push the release date again and do a beta for a month? Hilarious! Also, returning DF players who have been told that they will have the game for free now need to pay for it?

     

    Its still free for returning players. They just need to pay their first months sub (which you still get once it goes live) and activate their accounts.

    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

    not surprised.

    glad for the delay.

    the synergy of a tested game coordinated with a Steam release should really help.

     

    glad for the extra free playtime the beta test will allow.

    Lol this is unbelievable. I mean what were they thinking? For real people that know nothing like myself saw this from a hundred miles away!!! This just shows how out of touch they are and it really lowers consumer confidence. I know I won't be buying this.

    I've played since the release of the first Darkfall. The game itself was great once you got past the incredibly steep learning curve due to the broken GUI that you had too program yourself with auto hotkey or a third party app. But that's where any good this game has left in it stopped, they had a great basic idea and somewhat executed. Everything else is terrible, customer support, actually coming through on deadlines never happens, the playerbase is lied too non stop, favoritism for certain players in game, forum mods that are there for there own benefit. You literally just never know what's gonna happen. AV's word is, and i mean this LITERALLY, it's, well worthless. Nothing they EVER say actually happens in a fashion or timeline that is even close to what they initially promise. If you choose to gripe on there forums they will instantly delete your posts. They are trying to appeal too the masses this time and vets of the game leaking there indiscretions of the game are stifled on the forums so you need too read sites like this too get the "BIG PICTURE".

    No shit. AV isnt a megamillions corp. If they were Darkfall would be just another cancerclone.

    No, wait, I don't. This is so much more fun. I need to get a bigger bucket for all the fanboy tears this is going to cause.

    Personally I don't give a damn about AV and DF anymore. The game isn't what they envisioned. It's just a big PvP gankfest and frankly, if I want to do just that I'll just play Chivalry.

    All you guys complaining and saying you have no respect for Taso's ect, I have no respect for you.

    I doubt you eben know how hard it is to complete a launch ready game like this. Would you prefer a crappy launch so you can moan and complain about how buggy it is? Ofc you would.

    I for one would rather wait a few extra months and have a more stable game. This is not the same experience as unwrapping a theme park mmo and completeing it in a month.

    These games are a labour of love for the devs and deserve to be treated so by the player.

    p.s

    I may not even buy the game and this is how I feel when I read this doosh sh@t.

    Sorry to hear this for the DF fans...i dont like DF or DFUW but this studio sure knows how to disapoint their loyal playerbase + fans time after time after time.

     

    Maybe they should be punsished by it to never look back at their games, its the only way these rotten potatoes die out with the rest of the losers.

  • CaldrinCaldrin CwmbranPosts: 4,533Member Uncommon

    I think we all expected this but for AV to announce it like an hour or so before the 12th was just crazy.. its shows exactly how bad the company is and thats not a good way to bring new people into the game.

     

     

    I think the majority of people wanted some kind of beta test well before the origional release date but for soem reason AV thought they didnt need one.. I guess they where wrong as they didnt even have a playable build ready for us to test today..

    I've seen medicore guilds who were capable of communicating and organising themseleves better than this, is this why DF never really took off? All i hear is how great the game is but then you find other posts around suggesting population was low.

    Trust is important between a service provider and a consumer, when you constantly demonstrate that you can not be trusted, people look for alternatives.

  • MrBum21MrBum21 lost, OHPosts: 378Member Uncommon

    wait, hold on, don't tell me the punch line.  I think I have heard this joke already...

     

    I am looking forward to this game, but still expected this to happen.  It's like 2008 all over again.

    the missing link in a chain of destruction.

    All spelling and typographical errors are based soely on the fact that i just dont care. If you must point out my lack of atention to detail, please do it with a smile.

    The game was pretty good but it took a lot of time to get your character up to a lvl where you could compete in PVP so most new players would feel there was nothing they could do and quit.. IF they had actually got into a good guild it may have taken them a month to get skills up enough for group pvp but still most people didnt realise that..

    Oh? I thought we were nominated for Most Innovative Launch Procedure.

    Also from the blog :

     

    "...We regret the last minute announcement, we had to agree on this with several parties and get approval from all our departments so we’ve been agonizing over this since last week.  We do appreciate your understanding on this, it was not an easy or a pleasant decision for us to make, especially at the last minute, and we feel badly that we’re not true to our word..."

    It doesn't say anywhere in the post that the version they have isn't playable. It only says that they will be running the beta in debugging mode in order to make use of information for debugging purposes. If you watch any of the videos they have released for it obviously the game is in a playable state.

    It is pathos we lack, and this lack of pathos makes the worlds we explore quite stale.

    Very annoying. They should attempt to spin this around and do something positive, like opening a former-subscriber beta this week. It's not perfect but atleast it should calm the rage.

    lol what a joke, fu.. aventurine, they deserve big fail and will get it
  • toddzetoddze no where, OKPosts: 2,155Member
    I am disappointed, but if it's for the better than so be it. I'd much rather the game be "ready" than a rushed release to meet a stupid deadline and the game be riddled with more bugs. Ultimately that puts off more people than a delayed release.

    What a bunch of childish whiners.  Yes AV communicated poorly.  Yes the news is disappointing.  That is no excuse for some of the behaviour being shown.

    I'm happy about them finally realising that a Beta is the best thing for the game before going live on such a big platform like steam.

    However i'm dissapointed how they thought telling us 2 hours before release was okay. 

    NO Aventurine, Tell us in advance next time. This created ALOT of unneeded drama and had you just told us about the beta 1 week ago it would've been fine

    Fact:Actually Tasos announced the new delay 45 mins prior to launch!!
