If DF is the best game for PVP at present, that explains a lot about why I no longer partake in PVP in MMORPGs.....I'd rather just play a Survival game. Much less of a mindless PVE grind to get to the good part...Uhh, the grind has been severely reduced, and you only have to do it once, as opposed to the monthly wipes all the alpha give us your money we promise were working on it titles do. Also the PVP in those games is god awful, full of hackers 1 shotting you with their instaheadshot aimbots.
Yes i claim to be a pvpr,likely before many even played a game online.Yes i have also played Darkfall.I cannot give an honest opinion to which MMO pvp is the best because i do not like pvp in a mmo setting,it is not a purest type pvp nor will a MMO ever offer the maximum skilled pvp i want.Overwatch is closer to the pvp i want and i won't even play that game,so imagine how i feel about where Darkfall lies in the scale of 1-10 quality of pvp.I believe what happened to cloud most minds in ALL genres,is they joined gaming when it became super diluted.I truly believe i got to play the BEST design for most genres FIRST,then that gave me a better understanding of what developers are doing.I know a LOT of people like to say things like "oh so and so might copy but they do it better",although that is possible,i have seen very little "doing it better" in latter designs.I should also point out that DF is a bit too easy to cheat and tough to notice it.In pvp games i have played,i have a really good idea when someone is cheating.Why does this matter,well because the players can leave that server and go to a better server,where as in MMOS you are pretty much locked into the server no matter what.It also matters a lot because in general wide gaming,there is VERY little if any GM proactive work,however on private servers,the GM's are usually active and clamp down on cheating.I only scratched the surface a very small bit as to why i am not interested in Darkfall pvp.
Not sure who this thread is directed toward. Darkfall has been out for about five years. I am pretty certain that any player who has experienced pvp and claims to be a pvper has already tried darkfall. If not, then it is pretty obvious that they are not the pvp player that they claim to be. In other words, I think its pretty safe to presume that any pvper worth their merit has already tried Darkfall. Not unlike EVE, Darkfall has its niche. Though any attempts to promote the game need not be begrudged, there is no need to delude oneself into thinking that five years later any additional promotional attempts will make any type of substantial difference in its player base. Darkfall is what it is. It has a small loyal niche player base and that niche crowd is all it will ever have. That is the predictable fate for any OWPvP game of its kind.

Oh look a thread from Nov of last year!I have experienced much better PvP in other games.Why? Darkfall combat is terrible.Darkfall combat sucks with the stupid 180 degree swing around melee combat, its beyond dumbJust my 2c
Concentrate on enjoying yourself, and not on why I shouldn't enjoy myself.
in other words... its an open world where you can overgear and outlvl the competition..... if you can buy anything to help you, I don't wanna go near it

Didn't people used to hack the crap out of Darkfall back in the day? Like blatantly obvious hacks? Because no one cared anymore, not even the Devs?
I retired retroactively..Haha
I feel like I've gone back in time reading this thread.It's like the pre-launch days of the original DF all over again.People going to forums, beating their chests about how you're only experiencing "real PvP", or you're "only a real PvP'er" if you play Darkfall".Anyone else still around here who remembers that?Let's see how else history repeats itself.
Darkfall always looked like bunny hopping aim bot mess to me. Never felt like the combat had risk versus reward meta. Plus it looked absolutely terrible IMO.Pass then, pass now.
Can't get my pen to write in this space.

Yes many was banned, also if you do not use auto hotkey you are at a
severe disadvantage. Just look at the pvp videos and watch the spells
cycle without even being on the hotbar. That is autohotkey, cycle all
spells with E and Q. Unless ofc I am completely wrong and this revamp
included spell cycle into the game.
