Posted below is a somewhat chronological list of videos highlighting just a small fraction of the events of the last three and a half years in Darkfall Online, and how the game world has changed over time.
Darkfall Online: 5 months of Darkfall Online HD 720p - July 13th, 2009
This video recaps a lot of the large sieges that happened between the massive alliances that arose at the dawn of the game. It also shows off some of the early solo players that made a name for themselves within the first months of the game. These were the days of low-quality armor, single stacks of regs, and massive mana missile battles.
Darkfall - [Superfriends VS Vamesis] - Aradoth Siege - January 24th, 2010
This video shows a massive siege that occured shortly after the NA server opened for character transfers from EU. A year into the game, many players were using high-end gear to give them an edge, magic had become a much more popular choice for playstyle, and clans pulled no punches when it came to defending their territory.
Darkfall - [Zealot VS Thundercats] - Silmiyat AvA Siege - June 1st, 2010
A year and a half into the game, the population had shrunk from the massive numbers that it had reached at launch. The political game became more treacherous than ever, as numbers became a larger and larger factor in fights. Alliance vs Alliance fights were a way for one alliance to prove their prowess over other alliances, without outside interference. Magic had become commonplace and tactics such as "nuke syncing" had become meta.
Darkfall - Mar Shral Siege 18/12/2010 - December 20th, 2010
After two years of Darkfall, the factors that set clans and players apart were becoming more and more apparent. The players at the top were using high-quality gear, select spells, and were being led by talented shot callers who could lead a group through the chaos of combat to a definitive outcome. Magic was so integrated into the game at this point that you had to coordinate almost every form of it to keep the battle organized. "WoF Syncs", "Toxic Dumps", and "Chain Knockups" became everyday lingo, for better or for worse.
Darkfall - Manowar Capture - NA1 - February 14th, 2011
While land-based siege combat was a huge part of Darkfall, it by no means was the extent of it. The first Ship Combat took place within weeks of the launch of the game, and sea battles have been commonplace ever since. Perhaps the most notorious of all ship fights was the day TSL's Manowar fell to the TIA zerg.
Tri Sieged (Elish/Bloodscar/Teneland) - February 22nd, 2012
Three years into the game, it was not uncommon for the battle-hardened veterans of the game to be sieged by sometimes overwhelming numbers of enemies. Some of the most remembered fights for these players are the ones where they managed to win against all odds.
Shmee v Shmee - September 20th, 2012
Today, with Unholy Wars looming in the near future, the game is still alive, and just as dangerous as ever. Those who have fought their way to the top and stayed there for years have quite literally mastered their craft. This list would not be complete without the inclusion of a video of perhaps the best player to ever touch the game, Itwas Luck.
Last but not least, before you shoot the messenger, please note that many of these videos are personal favorites, and do not in any way represent the exclusive history of Darkfall, especially politically. The world is so vast that the only way I could hope to approach explaining it is from a perspective familair to myself. I encourage other Darkfall players to share their own videos of the last three years, as I know there are many, many wonderful videos out there that I haven't included here.
As for Unholy Wars, this girl will be seeing you in the field >.<
