    Im going to save this thread. Why? Because itll be interesting to compare the death of DnL with the death of Darkfall.

    I have my best wishes for darkfall but, reading this thread I was thinking the same. I had the idea that darkfall will end up with the same fate.

    Yeah, it seems that small company + big promises = fail

    IIRC, DnL didn't come out with gameplay videos before they pushed out their alpha game and called it a beta, and used closed beta keys as an incentive to push out their preorders, which alot of people fell for, and was unable to get a refund afterwards.  The whole thing smelled fishy.  The difference with Darkfall is that whenever they ran into technical or financial problems, they would rather postpone the release date than shove their unfinished product out and try to scam people's money.  There is a huge difference here.

    Well, from what I've read on the official forums and site, that's basically what happened. I personally stopped playing about a month after launch when I still couldn't log in properly. From what I understand they had some sort of auto-reboot system in place, which seemed to cause quite a few problems, and one of the supposed scheduled days it went down, it never came back up. Now about a month or so into the server being down a bunch of the forum mods, which are actually unpaid players, tried to tell everyone that the game wasn't dead, blah, blah, hype, blah. Well it never did come back up, even after the date specified by the mod/players.

    I wouldn't feel to bad about any of those players left near the end. They knew they were playing a game with a large part of the code stolen and couldn't care less. It wasn't until the end and _Pix_ winning the counter suit against him, that I think a few of them started to realize that everything they were told and believed was one big lie. The people you should feel sorry for is the ones who overcharged several times and some by hundreds of dollars.

    "He who can't be named" Is still hanging in there I see.

    Some years ago I noticed DnL here and was pretty interested on how the game will look and feel.

    Meanwhile I lost track on it and when finally looking for it again, I read about servers are down and about stolen code.

    Seems it is just true, most Games just fail, but you never hear about them before they are released.

    Which reminds me.  It's interesting how every "bad" game gets its share of ulta-fanbois.  Apparently there are people out there who live to take a contrary position at all costs.  Whether it's because they crave the attention or playing devil's advocate just gives them goose bumps, I don't know.  But my blocked-list is full of these weirdos.  I just hope for their sake that they don't actually beleive the games they are praising truly deserve it.

    Someday someone will write a doctorial thesis on people like that.  Should be an interesting read.

    And the game is not dead yet. .. We just can't play it right now.

    .. It's temporarily unavailable at an indefinite period of time.

     

    Games are not dead untill the developers of the game say so. Obviously, they have to get through this Pixel idiot problem.

    Not that you could play it when the server was up and running. This game was incrediable laggy and constantly hitching. It made the Vanguard launch look like silk.

     Yes its past dead, DnL was dead when it launched , development for that game was a train wreck and is nothing like DFO .

    DFO in alfa looked better than DnL did at release.

    There is no Darkfall alpha that anybody has seen.

    If you're talking about videos, the early DnL videos hyping all of its "awesome features" were pretty impressive too.

    I think he was reffering to the people that visted the Devs in Greece and played and from what GNi said about it after what they saw. But no no Alpha testers have came forth with a video or anything. I didn't think they did for Alpha testing and closed beta's though due to NDA's. When open beta starts though you can probably expect a flood of info.

    DnL hasn't had any patches or updates for well over a year now. The head guy at NPCube reportedly sacked the entire staff and left.

    I'm pretty sure it's dead, dude.
