I mean this strictly from a personal perspective and what I'm about to say could insult sensitive people so for this I apoligize, Darkfall much like Mortal Online is one of the few projects with testicles, Much like Mortal Online (Which is vastly worse) Darkfall suffers from the lack of talented developers. All the concepts and ideas for Darkfall make it the go to game for a PvP player but the follow through of the product derails popularity. After supposedly 13 years of DarkFall Developing... THey still can't get features in the game and bugs sorted out in their atrocious game engine. They have completely failed to optimize the game and lack of staff or understanding of cheating to catch cheaters. All this said I love the game, I handed my money over for the 29.99 copy of the game and have no regrets because I support developers who want to do something unique, which is strange since this is how all MMO's started and so how turned into a care bear non pvp gear treadmill.
Everyone is so quick to bash this title and it's flaws and while it may be deserving of critisim for failing to follow through on promises within time frames but at the end of the day it's one of the few products that offer something different from WoW and the WoW Era. Everyone claims to be so tired of WoW and they down vote WoW yet all they play are theme parks similar. Which is all fine and good preference is preference but stop bashing anything different and being complete hypocrites. There's so much hate and so little appreciation for the pety money spent on these games... if 19.99 or 29.99 or 49.99 or 59.99 (Defiance and GW2) is too much for you... Maybe you should be more worried about finding a new career and less about gaming. I hope Aventurine pulls through and atleast within a year gets a solid product out because everyone else is too scared to go this route and games in the Ultima Online image need to exist.
Furthermore everyone talks about meaningless pvp but then they're all so scared to play a game with meaningful pvp. Open world full loot and massive sieges... I hope to see more of these so called "PvPers" who want meaning giving this game a chance even with it's flaws.
