    I look forward to the review as well as reports of it was worth the wait and if the game is better than the pre-NGE version, Darkfall 1.

    Looks like a great game. Waiting to see how the game shapes up. So far, all I am getting is bad press. Hopefully, this turns out to be a good game. Despite the developer.

    Care to elaborate on this? 

    What did you like most about beta, how buggy was it, best part about launch?

    Now this is some comedy right here.  People left the beta in droves because it sucked so bad, and many aren't coming back.

    A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

    Easy to have a 'successful launch' when almost no one buys your game.

    I had a great time toward the end of beta and I'm patching now and looking forward to starting the real game with my clan. 


    In spite of whatever flaws this game may have, it's still the best mmorpg on the market to me.

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    I preordered a while ago and couldnt play much during the beta because of its issues and how bad it played on my PC, so now I will try my month that came with the preorder and see how it all works out.

    downloading now. i spent a couple of hours in the beta after each update, hating it each and every time.  i don't see why the actual launch of the game will be any different but i'm bored and i did pay for the game after all so why not give it ONE MORE GO.

    I too had a blast toward the end of the beta, and I am soooo looking forward to the game. Downloading now  =)

    It's not perfect, but it sure beats themepark imo.

    I logged in imediatly when the server came up and have been PvEing and gathering ever since.

    I'm also getting a steady 80ish fps so yes, for me it was a successfull launch.

  • StofftierStofftier berlinMember Posts: 93
    Doesnt change the fact that 90% of the people having big trouble downloading even with big bandwith.And 10% are allready again ahead.I wouldnt call this a success i call it its startet not fine but started :O
  • movindudemovindude Member Posts: 127 Uncommon
    I didnt like the first but loved the idea they had for a game. This time around they have more money and experience so im going ot give it another shot. My all time favorite EQ1 was a mess from the start but what a great game that was and im still tryign ot find a game i loved as much. This one has death p[enalties that will make you sweat and heart beat from excitement. Thats what im looking for. I may finally hang up my tanks (wot). The 60kb per sec patch is something i will do while i sleep. 5gigs

    I suggest anyone interested in this game takes a long hard look at reviews, their forums and every bit of information you can get your hands on.

    The launch has gone really well(for darkfall), and the game is running smoothly(for most). The game is looking really good graphically and the overall UW overhaul has finally put darkfall into the realm of its true potential, something which was never realistically possible with the original. There are still people unhappy, those who resist change and those not prepared for the realities of darkfall but once people get on with it I think it will quiet down. 
  • NaowutNaowut GroningenMember Posts: 662 Uncommon

    I find it really funny that these people call it a bad launch because some people have trouble downloading the game, yeah It took 1 hour longer for my whole clan to get in. big woop. 

    The game is running smooth.

  • naljejanaljeja BergenMember Posts: 94
    the launch had some rigid edges but went rather smooth and succesfully. great game and will only become greater by time!
  • Furion-HunterFurion-Hunter LondonMember Posts: 48 Uncommon
    Launched was rushed... but If the devs wake up and work hard game willl be great.

    Too hardcore for me with the politicts and corruption you can be a part of in the game and being solo makes you a target.

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.
