Anyone notice that the population is going up, quick?

We are still early in release but there are more people in the newbie areas every day.  Today was a massive spike.  Maybe it's just the weekend or is Darkfall becomeing popular?  AV did do something right this time around.

The definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over expecting different results.

    Its looking good and we still have the steam release ahead of us where we should expect a big spike.

    Yes, that is what is called a fresh release. Happens to every single game out there. Its about whether those people stay that really counts.

    There is a difference though. DF UW has been in beta for 5 months and almost all of its current population has been in it. The blind hype that a new release brings is almost non existent here.

    Plus they screwed themselves a couple times by saying it was going to release then pushing it back. So if the population is actually getting bigger than the beta people, then that's a good thing. If I do end up getting it, it will be with the steam release. Was it already greenlit?

    sounds like those secret world threads, so this won't end well for DF.

    Yes it has been greenlit already and AV said few days ago that the integration is complete. There is no info yet on when it will go live on steam though.

    i think part of it has to do with the DL speeds.  i just finally finished downoading the game yesterday.

    I think the prostitute mod corrupted your game files man. -elhefen

    There's no trial, but the game rules.

    I think it's a weekend surge. Also, the population will spike up again when the Steam release happens, probably. So get those popular mob killing feats out of the way early before the Steam people come. Then you can go back and gank them after they farm for a while image

    I think the games got more staying power then the first one did.

    They will disappear quick when they realize it's half a game.

    Game population at 1-month, 3-months, 6-months, and 12-months determine its longevity.

    I do hope that darkfall sticks around, though I don't like the payment model.

    I'm really enjoying the non-grind, the game had a few bumps at the start but they are on it, this game has unlimited potential. Don't let the nay-sayers derail you, it's certainly not for everyone but it can rekindle that fire so many MMO's fail to ignite if you give it a chance.

    DF UW is undeniable. Anyone hating on this game is a pro hater.

    Yeah, it was crazy just about everwhere on the server from what I heard today.  Just swarms of groups of 5 or more roming around.  If steam release is a hit AV might have to open up more servers!

    THat excites me i'd definately jump ship to a new server without all the pro guikds,Get a fresh start with new players and new experiences.

     

    Today in the wilderness while trying to farm ore 5 random people crossed my path and tried to kill me, this doesn't seem like an incredible thing until you acknowledge how massive the world is that 5 random people happen to be passing that same area. So I left the area because it obviously seemed like high traffic and passing through a even more remote locaton a group of 10 or so Thunder Buddies are passing by and try to gank me, server definately does seem busy.

    Wow its finally out. Can't wait to play.
  • DarthRaidenDarthRaiden gdfgfPosts: 4,333Member

    Numbers can't define quality.  Take WoW for example..

    It just means a bad company with ther dumbed down game survives longer...(if they keep the numbers wich is to doubt given AV's practices and how they will make any customer turn away soon enough)

    It's not a game, it's a virtual world.

    This population spike is causing me problems. Some resources are in short supply (metal, fishing), so I'm having to move out of the starter area.

     

    It's too early to say whether this is going to be a good thing or a bad thing.

    Lol its a good thing. You are supposed to leave the safe areas.  Thoes resorses mean even more to you if you have to fight for em :)

    But sersioulsy if you find the safezones to crouded whatever you do don't just hug the edges.  Leave the safe zones far behind. Its the only way you will ever find some solitude and you might even find someone that has already harvested them for you :)

    Being new to the Darkfall games, it took a little getting used to and a fair number of questions to figure everything out. After getting past the learning curve though, I can say this game is great fun!
