    If you're ever going to try the game, it's probably best to try it now while it's new and everyone is still excited about it.  I'm having fun so far, but I understand that it's a PvP sandbox by nature.  If that's not your thing you're probably not going to have fun in it for very long.  

    Also worth noting is that it's heavily geared towards guild activities.  You can do everything solo early on, but groups of people are needed for the more challenging activities from what I've read (I've yet to get that far myself).

    It's a mobile game, man.  They even say it will run on phones.  I bought into the early access without really giving that much thought.  I doubt it's going to have enough depth to keep people playing for long.  Don't expect a classic MMO experience and you will probably have fun for a while.

    I kinda like it. It's not that I am anxious to get home to play it but I am certainly looking forward to ride along the likes of Lord Torval and Lord Sedryn and apparently King Blueturtle.

    I think it's an enjoyable little game if played with the right people.

    No I do not recommend this game due to a reason I do not want to mention here but you can read my other long argument posts, except lets just say I think they locked my email and account out of the support system all together too.

    Although lets say I played for 4 years.

    And the game has lots of cheaters / bots, sure they are banning them, but the fact is this game has no security to prevent cheats, and was not ready for launch in its current state, I even see gold spammers already posting to their forums and stuff advertising gold sells.

    And the company can only ban by IP address which isn't a real ban because you just change this and play again.

    I dont play btp games, mostly a f2p gamer due to money reasons but how can the company only ban by ip and you change it and play again? does it not cost $30 to even play this game, and if someone gets "banned" dont they need to pay another $30 to even create another account...

    Yes, but generally I am a legitimate player who doesn't like to circumvent bans, and yes gold famers use stolen credit-cards to purchase currency and premium accounts.

    Truth is the stolen Credit Cards likely come from people who provide this information to them when they illegally buy gold they then do unauthroized charges on their cards and then in game they sell the currency to other people so basically the game company loses money, and the gold seller makes legitimate money from other people aka a big scheme that sucks huger than a giant leech.

    And this game still lacks security, or protection against fraud so until they change this gold sellers will continue to exploit the whole gold to silver exchange.

    Edit: and what I mean by IP bans is they ban the account but your more than welcome to just swap IP addresses and keep creating new accounts as many as you want, and that is what these illegal gold sellers are doing.

    No its one giant server followed by colored zones with different rule-sets just like EVE Online.

    Well at least even though I don't like EVE much because of not finding the right group of peoples lol at least in EVE they don't ban you for freely trading currency to anyone you want to as long as it doesn't come from a illegal source, this is the major difference between EVE & Albion in EVE you have free trading and are innocent until they prove you guilty, and in Albion you are automatically guilty for free trading

    Seems like a fun grind/leveling game so far, but its having a rough time currently, like most mmo launch weeks. Almost every zone is overcrowded, making it hard to harvest tier 4+ mats, or making it lag and rubber band. Today I got a login queue time for an hour and a half. Since there is only one server, not sure how they plan on resolving this, other than I guess hoping people lose interest and less people play? Which would be a weird thing to hope for. (Or maybe this goes away once people have migrated to higher level zones perhaps? I don't know, I'm a total noob.)

    The login queue screen actually says "Unfortunately the servers are very busy" - thought having lots of interested players was a good thing hehe.

    I've played for several hours now.  Are we so desperate for a new MMO that we will accept this mobile grind crap?  It has the depth of a mud puddle and slow, boring, repetitive combat.  Does it miraculously get better at higher levels or something?

    yep ......sadly has more depth then most of the more recent mmos. we all see the illusion, but living the lie is more fun then focusing on reality. 

    mix of runescape and Eve feels like an accurate description. i think both in their prime did it better but runescape is a shadow of its former self and Eve is niche within a niche

    I like the look of this game and the PvE stuff like gathering, crafting and the economy is incredibly appealing. But the open world PvP 'gankfest' nature of the game completely turns me off.

    I also think it is way, way too expensive. $30 to buy, then paying a monthly subscription, plus a cash shop! Methinks not!

    It would be fun if you went over with an already existing organized pvp guild.

    Naw Kyleran  they have blue zones no pvp what so ever, yellow zones you lose only 10% of silver on you if you die, Red and black zones you lose what ever you have on you except no silver. So what I would call a choice to go where I would like too.

    I actually played Albion last summer.

    This choice you speak of is a bit of an illusion,  unless you enjoy staying in lower level zones and forego progression sooner or later you will have to go into the upper tier zones.

    When you do you may find what I did, wolves waiting at every "gate" to eat the unwary.

    Definitely a game best played with a good group of powerful friends.

    Solo, not so much.

    I'll give it a go eventually,  mostly once the dust settles and they get the iPad support working.

    phone game?? damn... well... usually I try out almost every new PVP MMORPG that may be considered hardcore in any sense but this..... this mobile game..... meh

    NEWS FLASH! A bank was robbed the other day and a man opened fire on the customers being held hostage. One customer zig-zag sprinted until he found cover. When questioned later he explained that he was a hardcore Darkfall Online player and knew just what to do.

    Watch me play Darkfall and sometimes PVP in other MMORPGs on Twitch.

    Darkfall has launched!!! MAY 5th!! Join before its too late!

    I am enjoying the game very much.  Here are some thoughts.

    1st:  It's not a phone game.  It's meant for tablets and computers.  It even says on their website that it's not meant for phones.

    2nd:  It's a guild centric game, so if you're a solo or bust kinda guy, it might be a challenge.

    3rd:  Grinding is definitely a part of the game.  I enjoy grind in my games, but if you don't, it might not be from you.

    4th:  It is a player driven economy with all that entails.  Markets, resources, and shortages/surpluses, and price variations are all in play.  Markets are local, so you might have to travel to get some deals.

    5th:  Definitely PvP for higher level play.  You can avoid PvP at lower levels, but if you wanna appreciate the much of the game, you're gonna have to wet your blades.

    6th:  You can have your own island where you can farm, and craft.  Some grind comes into play in order to get it up and running, but you aren't relying on other ppls buildings for much of your crafting.

    7th:  You can buy gold/premium with silver and doesn't require money.  It might take some playing to do this, but it makes premium free in terms of real cash.

    I'm sure there is more, but hopefully it gives some things to consider.
    Kyleran

    Concentrate on enjoying yourself, and not on why I shouldn't enjoy myself.

    Can you accomplish anything at higher levels without running with a guild or group?  Or do you just get ganked the second you step into the open PvP zones?
