    i think this is why people bash it, because it looks god awful for a game in development for 5+ years

    No worries, i might have been harsh. In all honesty, I hope it does well I would like another option for a MMO. I just wish someone would buy DAOC off EA/Mythic and release DAOC to SI x pac, and OF. I would play that for years:(

     

    Origins is coming.  There aren't many times i'd sub to two MMO's, but Origins server releasing is one of them.



     

    Well yes I hear it is, so lets hope. You never know, but i know at least 20 people going if it does :)

    You are standing in a hallway of locked doors; each door has a small window you can look through.  Every door also has a plaque that describes to you what you might expect to find behind that particular door.
    Many people gather outside these doors, waiting for them to open.  ...
    One door in particular seems to be attracting a large crowd.  Evidently, the plaque on this door claims to open a world like no other; with truly unique sights and adventures.
    Of course, some people don't just believe everything they read so they decide to take a peak through the little window.  ....

     

    Okay OP.  To use your analogy...

    Many of the people looking through the window have not only looked through the other windows but also have quite a bit of experience opening doors.

    Some of them have entered many of the other doors off the hallway and have quite a bit of actual experience in the other rooms.  They have seen how what you see through the windows translates to actual in room experience.

    So, some of them can actually make very good calls about about what sort of environments a skunk (or a cat?) might be happy in, and what other animals it might get along with.

    Some of them might say... it doesn't matter if it is a Skunk or a Cat because the room has been filled with water and Sharks! 

    They actually tried that behind doors 3 and 5 and it really didn't work...

    If they add some land like behind doors 7, 11 and 19 then it might work... but they have to make sure there is still food for the Sharks or they will starve...

    But that involves a whole lot more work and a bigger room like behind door 22!

    And contrary to what you apparently believe OP.  The people here don't want the game to fail.  They want to play behind the door and for it to be awesome.

    But they know that if you have a Skunk or a Big Cat behind the door then filling the room with water is not going to help or make it more fun to play with - so they say so.

    Nothing says irony like spelling ideot wrong.

    Because they can.

    Because it makes them feel important.

    Because they are pasionate about what they believe.

    Because it is all they have in thier life.

    Because it's all they have to offer.

    The theme park game fans fear Darkfall's success because it offers an alternative to their preference and challenges their choice. Ignorant people want conformity and lash out at anything different.

    why would someone fear that a game might be successful, if darkfall is a great game all gamers will benefit from it..your fanboyism has clouded your judgement.

    I don't see how this has anything to do with him being a fanboy.  You come off as a troll with this, while he just comes off as someone stating an opinion.  This is a perfectly valid reason for bashing, and it happens more than you would like to admit.  You seem much more emotionally invested than any of the people you are calling fanboys.

    Well,

    fortunately I am blessed with sight, sound, and all that jazz. I don't need to press buttons on a keyboard when I can see first hand videos that show Wolfenstien quality graphics and animations. The game is completely contentless, you wanted sandbox? You deffinently got that, just there is no sand.

    my main problem, is not with the game, idea or concept. My downfall to skepticism came from the company themselves, and the fanbois coming to other forums touting stuff like "Your game sucks...check out darkfall". It's the only real reason i still hang out on the darkfall forums. I could be in the eve or tor forums, and then you will see the inevitable post "bleh, i don't like this game, i am gonna wait on a real game like Darkfall". If you don't want haters in your forums, then keep the fanbois out of other forums....call it a simple truce.

    This pretty much sums up how I feel about DF. It's the attitude of some of the 'fans' that get my hackles up. The whole 'your game is carebear, play DF and be a real man' mentality is not the way to gain supporters.

    Oh and Tasos, obviously.

    Watching a video is hardly first hand.  Your comment comparing the graphics to Wolfenstein is woefully ignorant.

    maybe because we are also sick of forumfaller's invading the forums of every other game on this site? Love all these newly registered people with like 20 posts count, 1 in darkfall forums saying how great its going to be, 19 in other game's forums saying they suck and darkfall is going to rule them all.

    Everytime they post, i am gonna post here! ha! payback! (not really...but i am getting tired of it as well...i can't wait for this game to release already and get these damn forumfallers off of here)

    The best story-telling thread related to Darkfall is the one where it is compared to a Christmas morning. Though fanbots may call it trolling, it's still funny.

    Yours is good too OP!

    Fun fact, if you're sprayed by a skunk in the eyes you can become temporarily blind.

    --------------------------------------
    A human and an Elf get captured by Skaven. The rat-men are getting ready to shoot the first hostage with Dwarf-made guns when he yells, "Earthquake!" The naturally nervous Skaven run and hide from the imaginary threat. He escapes. The Skaven regroup and bring out the Elf. Being very smart, the Elf has figured out what to do. When the Skaven get ready to shoot, the Elf, in order to scare them, yells, "Fire!"

    It's because the owner of that skunk has promised a white-tailed cat (?) and has offered little to no proof to show that it is in fact a white-tailed cat.  That skunk definitely had potential, but you can't change a skunk into a cat with only paint.

    Oh, not to mention that a good amount of the beta-testers' reviews are overly negative.  But really, I'm just upset that Aventurine has dropped the ball...From what I've found out so far.

    First a fraps video drops your frame rate quite low, and then even with that raw footage a short 3 minute video can grow to 5+ gigabytes.  This has to be compressed to all hell.
    Is it that hard to wait for the game to come out and judge the reactions by the masses then?  I don't mean these forums either cause I guarantee no matter how good the game is they will turn into a trollfest. 



     

    Why do you keep implying the game is good, and hint you might know more then the rest of us...and cant back it up? That is as bad as what you say about people you attack here on the forums not knowing ABOUT the game ASSERTING it is bad. If you cant prove what you assert, dont open your pie hole, kk?

    Oh and the game dosnt need you to defend it. I saw your post in another thread about how you have so kindly donned the mantle of the troll slayer so you can protect the new folks coming here for information...the game will stand or fall on its own merits, irrespective of your intentions, and frankly you cannot contribute one shred of evidence to support your positions.
