I'm sure there will be many fans defending DF, but I am just going to objectively explain why a lot of people shouldn't waste their money on this game.
I was sold on a game of open world PVP. Death mattered and politics played a hand in everything. Build and harvest, wooh.
The last 2 days have been login issues and server attacks, as well as mob and resource spawn glitches.
What does that translate into?
a bunch of people telling me "Oh its just...insert excuse here".
yes I understand MMOs have issues. But understand when I spend my whole weekend attempting to play a game that got me excited for world PVP....that let me mine a few rocks, chop a few trees, but mostly run around a river attempting to find fish that never came or other resources. Long walks with no player interaction but the mundane global chat of gold spam, pk trash talk, and people complaining about or zealously defending AV/Darkfall 2.
The real fact of the matter is : I spent a whole weekend attempting to play a game for the excitement of world PVP and my dreams were slaughtered by technical issues.
Yes, Neverwinter is Linear, but the combat is really fun.
Yes, WoW is boring and campy/themepark, but at least its a well tuned machine,
Yes, age of wushuu has a cash shop that lets you level faster, but at least it has some structure to produce world pvp past roaming hears of people (spy missions, etc...)
What does darkfall offer? A still clunky somewhat updated version of the dead game it was before?
It says it offers a lot. It just can't seem to follow up.
Another disappointment in the search for great PVP.
Just so the fanboys know : This is more of an explanation as to why many players will not put up with the barriers to entry of the PVP system that they crave. Yes I know all of the neat features DFUW promises to offer. I just can't see myself mustering up the patience to get through this game in its current state.
Pardon my low tolerance for stupidity.
