This is GREAT news!  Several hundred thousand pre-orders and the site did not crash!  Much better than the first round years ago.

    So where are you getting 'several hundred thousand' from?

    Interesting number "several hundred thousand". Where did it come from?

    I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

    That's awesome news!  They are able to take your money without a hitch!  Unfortunately they have yet to provide a working client to download.  But hey at least you can rest assured they have your money!!!

    The download is on Saturday.  Beta servers open Monday.

    You could not even pre-order the game when they launched it a few years ago.  This shows they have learned a lot since then. Even the first version of DFO kept getting better and better.  Take that experiance into account and toss it into this new game and we have "the next thing" everyone was looking for.

    Only 1 downside of this.  It's not Shadowbane 2.  Shadowbane had 300k  games sold in its first few days of existance.  Darkfall Online would of hit that mark if their server had not crashed.  Server is runinng fine today for Darkfall Unholy Wars!!!

    I thought the download was on Monday.  You know, last Monday.  But it got delayed.

    But hey I guess it's on Saturday now!  Well, at least once it has been delayed to every day of the week, whenever it does become available to download, it'll fall on one of the seven possible days of the week they mentioned previously and then they won't have been wrong.

    Without a hitch> Good for you. I've having trouble getting ym password back. It say my account is not found when trying to get it back. Their support is being crap for weeks... Probly the most stupid and yet the most deficient support i've seen, It's even worse then EA and Sony support.

    Did they learn a lot or is there little interest in a niche p2p game with a $15 monthly subscription in today's market?

    You could be making the same mistake I made.  You have to check "I purchased Darkfall Online" at the bottom of the pre-order page.  Then a username and password field will show up where you can enter in your old account info and get the discount.

    It says in this text file on my desktop that the human race is enslaved by trout-goat crossbreed overlords from the center of the Sun.

    Good thing I don't believe everything I read.

    Interested in the answer to this one, too.

    Pre-order was a smooth experience, not very Darkfall, we expect a rough time!

     

    Here was the majority of MMO'ers reaction to Darkfall's ruleset.
