Worth coming back?

I played Darkfall upon release (well, kind of.  I played after I could finally purchase it a couple weeks after release) and lasted only a few days.  The game, at that point, was far too incomplete and buggy to even play, much less enjoy.  I went back to EVE and have been there ever since, but have recently started looking back into DF.  I see alot of mixed reviews and opinions even now, but the game is undenyably changing.  My question is, is it changing in a good way that makes it enjoyable or is it still a horrid game not worth the time and money?  MO is supposed to release this year, but will get postponed until late next year at the rate they are going - I think MO has alot more potential than DF ever had, but the bottom line is its a hellofa long ways out and Im looking for a game to satisfy my needs now.  Whats yalls opinion?

    The question is what is YOUR opinion. You are going to play on your account, not us. The game improved that's for sure:

    - less grind: faster skill gains especially in pve,

    - the overall pve experience is more entertaining: they slashed HP of lot of mobs and boosted their loot tables, more to come with the incoming expansion including AI "overhaul".

    - player housing as a part of claimable ( like hamlets or clan cities ) villages. You need to pay taxes for your house and profit goes to the villages owner.

    - better siege performance after sound fix

    - weather system

    - a lot of bugs has been ironed out but I can still name a few which need fixing.

    - stop being lazy and check the forums - especially news section by yourself.

    I've resubbed (about 1 week ago) and started a new character.  A lot of good changes with more on the way.  I have not been disappointed.  It's been an action filled week.  I'm having a blast.

    I  resubbed on Sat and have not regretted it. The game is a lot more solid now.

    Probably about 1000x improvement from release days.

    Theirs still old annoying bugs though.

    It's pretty much the same game, I enjoy it, but if you left for a reason it's probably still there.

    The UI is the same, the world is about the same, there's still people that hang out to kill new players, there's still the same skills and user interface.

    I wouldn't ever tell someone the game has changed so you should come back. It's only worth it if you enjoyed it, but small things kept you away.

    Well I subbed to the EU version, last time I went with the NA one as the NA server had just hit, despite being from the UK i figured it may be more active. This time I've decided to stick with the better ping and what not. I'm a total newbie at the game granted, but I'm looking forward to getting into it. Also got a new PC this time. Will see how it goes.

    Well guys, according to many trolls on this forum you and I don't exist. If we believe them then no one is playing Darkdall really. Servers are empty and they have currently no new people subing.

    Everything you and I did yesterday and the day before in DF never happened. lolz. Its all imaginary. We are all imaginary!

    I worked it out yesterday, we aren't playing DFO! In fact DFO was never released, we're all actually playing the Matrix Online. At some point Lawrence Fishbourne will appear dressed in leather with a pair of shades and a chick in tight rubber, probably after you've bought a player house and offer you two pills. Then your char will wake up in MXO and you'll rage quit within 24hrs!

The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience"

    Trinity : I know why you're here, Neo. I know what you've been doing... why you hardly sleep, why you live alone, and why night after night, you sit by your computer. You're looking for it. I know because I was once looking for the same thing. And when it found me, it told me I wasn't really looking for it. I was looking for an answer. It's the question that drives us, Neo.

    Neo    : What is Darkfall ?

    Trinity : The answer is out there, Neo, and it's looking for you, and it will find you if you want it to.
