Darkfall: Unholy Wars: Last Minute Bug-Squashing Delays Beta Slightly

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,643MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

An update has been posted on the Darkfall Online: Unholy Wars site indicating that the team has delayed the beta start in order to replicate and squash a nasty "persistence" bug that can cause players to lose all of their items.

As I said, we haven't been able reproduce it so we need a few more hours to go after it. If we can't find it, we'll launch with it and keep looking for it. We may have to wipe at certain intervals.

Looks like we'll have the beta forum up as well. There are several known issues we'll start posting in the beta forum as soon as it's up.

We'll keep you updated on our progress. Thanks for the patience.

    A few more hours to go until we finally get to bitch about queue's at the forums.

     

    Last one in line misses out on a lag and gankfest unseen in recent MMO history...

    I really don't get how customers tolerate this... I get that they have a 'koolaided' fan-base, but any other industry and there would be significant backlash. MMO gamers are an interesting bunch.

    I am less concerned with what happens to a beta build than I am with the final product, I can wait until release.

    The more I see of this fiasco the more I am convinced I am not giving them my money. I understand they are a small developer and I'd rather they iron all of this stuff out now and not later, but what is with the absolute last minute updates on stuff? Especially now considering people are actually paying money to get into this beta (not saying I've never done that, I have done it for 3 games and only regret 1)

    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

    There really is no rush.  If you can put up with AV's lack of communication and constant set backs and delays, then by all means get it.  If not, wait.

    Ship happens.

     

    I'm impressed that they're fixing bugs.  Assuming that really is the reason.

    The funny thing though..? They wanted to launch the game 5 days ago... but decided to postpone the launch and have a beta 5 days later.

    Not only did they not have a release-worthy game... 5 days later it seems like its still not good enough to beta-test. image

    So what's the purpose of the beta testing?

    I bought it becouse is cheaper now, they selling the client at a 25% discount, or so they say. So I thought If i'm gonna buy it on release better to buy it now nad save money.

    The company is utter shit, but they got a killer product that no one else can provide... I want that dope in my veins, #%!& the consequences

    Weird, they delayed the beta which was the reason for the delay of the release.
  • MisterTeaBHMisterTeaBH SouthendPosts: 22Member

    we put up with it because there is nothing else like it , no other game comes even CLOSE to what darkfall offers, the amount of adrenaline that pumps through you when you play, the good stuff outweighs alllllllllllll the bad stuff like no communication and delays.

    ofc it pisses me off that devs sometimes seem to not give a shit about their fan base, but darkfall forums are a cesspit sometimes i probably wouldnt want to communicate wiht us either if i was a dev, but like I said the good stuff outweighs the bad by a huge margin

    good stuff wait df1 was shelved for dfuw get real, great game, unfortunately badly run company imo, it's the incompetence that's game breaking, imo i'll stay clear because of AV ....
