Update Beta ETA TO BETA 2 HOURS

DarkfallFanaticDarkfallFanatic Lake Moho, INPosts: 96Member

We're putting the build together right now. We're giving up on replicating the bug we were talking about, we gave it our best shot but we haven't been able to so far so we'll launch with it and deal with it later.

Sorry this has taken so long, we had been working on launching this early for a change, but last minute things always pop up. A safe ETA is around 2 hours, but the effort is for sooner. Apologies to the European players for the late hour.

Thanks for hanging in there.

 

can wait 2 hours Tasos. I will go lift for now.

    Man i can't believe it. Almost 1AM here in the UK, was hoping to give it a go tonight but honestly im glad ill be sleeping while the Americans ravage the servers. Means when i wake up i can give it a go before work in peace (assuming the server still exists after being stress test).  For now though;

    You ever get the idea that hese guys are in way over there head?

    Instead of a staff of 5 programmers, developers an customer service people this whole game is being done by like 5 guys working out of some apartment.

    I think youre confusing AV with SV.   Aventurine has over 50 employees and $millions in backing.

    Sorry to break it to you, but that was 10 years ago, Aventurine has a big stuidio with a badass "Aventurine" sign on the building, 60ish employees and counting.  10 millions went into creating the first game, much more into creating the 2nd game.  They're not as small as many people think.

     

    Still, compared to other giants in the industry, they're babies.

    Millions in backing, yet they constantly fail to meet deadlines, and blatantly spin the truth to their advantage.

    So much for a 2 hour eta on beta. we passed that deadline. no surprise.

    I admit that as a casually interested onlooker, I am intrigued by the simple fact that I have never read this much raging from a niche market game audience regarding a beta delay before. It makes me wonder if I should try it out to see if I end up as hooked as the rest of you. I mean there must be some redeeming qualities to the game and company to engender this much "RAGE 2 PLAY."

    The game, yes. The company, not so much. ;)

    Kind of gives a whole new dimension to "waiting" for DF:UW.

     

    Good luck, and hope it works out once it gets fired up.

    When games can reach critical and commercial success with 1-2 people working on the project total, and darkfall NGE has over 50, possibly over 60 people and can't reach seemingly any deadlines at all... there's a problem with them.

    Perhaps eventually we will see their "do-over" come to life and possibly contain the bugfixes for the original version.

    Wrong... the compagny is the big shit behind the scene of tghe game we plplay. Like i don tplay any game from sony and EA anymore due tot he crap they did, Aventurine is right netx to this. Of course, I knew about allt he crap that was going to happen sicne I was in DF1 beta and on launch but damn I didn't expect them to fail so miserably today. This was such a shame on them. They're just ruining more and more their reputation and killing the game sklowy but surely.

    We may not care how delayed it was, so long as the nice staff at the nursing home lets us use the computer by that time, but we sure will care about the gamebreaking bugs, design flaws, and eventually shutdown to prepare for Darkfall Reboot 3.0 2016 NNGE.

     

    I would be wary of investing any significant time in a Darkfall 2010 character, because based on the history of the company and game franchise, it will probably be wiped to make room for the next attempt.

    I'm starting to belive that Df1 was the alpha, DF2 is going to be the beta and Df3 is going to be the final product in 10years probly.
