After watching a first look video on this game I gotta say it looked boring as hell and I didn't really give it another glance until now. I hate the kind of people that give a quick glance at a game and immediately write it off and it turns out I was one of them xD I know this game has received a ton of flack and horrible attitudes about it which I guess I allowed to keep me from looking further into it.
I then heard more about the kinds of systems the game had in place and decided to research further. My idea of this game COMPLETELY changed after watching a few PvP videos and some huge boss fights still with the danger of PvP all around you. I think I kind of get what the whole idea of this game is now and honestly it's pretty refreshing. However the $40 + $15 a month for a game that has such a gamble factor is severely holding me back. I'd like to ask a few questions before deciding to purchase it.
1.) Population? This is definitely the most important thing I want to know, without a stable player-base I feel like no matter how good the game itself or it's systems may be, it's useless if there aren't a large number of players to enjoy it with. This is a hard question to determine from videos, especially after seeing so much hate for the game. Does it feel really populated or more deserted? Does the amount of players seem to be increasing or decreasing?
2.) Content/Things to Do? In a sandbox game you should almost never be bored, whether content is there for you or not you should be able to basically create your own content and always be doing something, not just something but have a variety of things to choose from. Is this so in DF:UH? Has anybody that's played longer than a week found themselves bored with the game?
3.) PvP/Combat? In the video these two things look AMAZING!!!! Though I understand looks can be deceiving. Can anybody tell me from first hand experience if it's really as fun as it looks? Be detailed.
4.) In your opinion how does this game stack up to other MMOs? Compared to both themeparks and sandboxes is fine.
Thanks in advanced!
If WoW was released today even in its' entirety it would be f2p in 3 months.
Why is it still such a big deal?
