If Darkfall went buy-to-play would you try it?

Personally - hell yeh.

I miss my darkfall, but it needs a decent population to make the game worthwhile playing.



Playing: Darkfall New Dawn (and planning to play Fallout 76)
Favourite games have included: UO, Lineage2, Darkfall, Lotro, Baldur's Gate, SSX, FF7 and yes the original Wizardry on an Apple IIe

    no.  I have no desire to go back to any version of darkfall.  

    Epic Music:

    Kyleran:  "Now there's the real trick, learning to accept and enjoy a game for what it offers rather than pass on what might be a great playing experience because it lacks a few features you prefer."

    John Henry Newman: "A man would do nothing if he waited until he could do it so well that no one could find fault."

    FreddyNoNose:  "A good game needs no defense; a bad game has no defense." "Easily digested content is just as easily forgotten."

    LacedOpium: "So the question that begs to be asked is, if you are not interested in the game mechanics that define the MMORPG genre, then why are you playing an MMORPG?"

    They have announced they are going to change it to "free trial" which IIRC sounded kind of like the SWTOR model. That would suit me fine if they copy the Cartel Coins idea because they have Selentine Coins already for their cosmetic cash shop.


    The game also features same system as Eve, where you can play for free if you aquire PLEX type items called "d.u.e.l."

    The free trial thing they said maybe in August/september, they want to improve the new player experience and hotbar systems (both of which are horrible for your average MMORPG player to adapt too) before they try to bring in massive new players.


    That said, it is a great time to start the game right now

    yeah there are players that do things in game for their subscription... like those duels or whatever so its already buy to play if you play a lot.

    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!
