With the sad state of MMO's these days I have been looking at places I wouldn't have touched a few years ago. I gave Salem a try the other day and that was a waste of time. I'm now looking at this game for my crafting focused survival game. We shall see how the launch goes and the news after words before I would purchase the game.

Any game that is by indie developers and is made to appeal to the niche community of consequences for your actions is worth  the hype.

The origional Darkfall was quite a paradox.  It had one of the most epic pve progression curves out of any game, would take years to max your toon out.  Tons of PVE space, and endless need for gear could feed any crafter with stuff to do.

It was a game completely populated by hardcore FPS pvpers who wanted nothing to do with progression or pve.  Where complaints about "grind" were met time and time again with reductionin progression...all of which never increased the pop size, despite the origional cries from pvpers that grind was why no one played.  Even after they went full retard with 20X skills per use the pop didnt budge.

Also was the complaints that "whaa i can never catch the vets and they dominate noobs" when vets avoided noobs and one miss from a vet would negate his damage/defense advantage...yes been done many times, a max character with no skills will die just about every time to a well skilled noob...still was ignored and assumed that stats were that important.

The games only saving grace, and will be in 2.0, is its never ending endgame of clan warfare and politics...why more games dont use this as their endgame is a tragedy.

 

But mind you that the people who have had AV's ear all these years during the patch to fix everything...aka DFUW are the very people who make a game like GW2 possible.  They just want a quick easy trip to endgame then pvp a button click away.  AV wont make it that themeparky...however they did reduce...yes reduce the world size to make pvp easier to find...and are implimenting soft cap roles to make progression faster, on top of what im sure is a reduced leveling system.

 

No sad was added, jut lighting, shrinking the world + noob safe zones...slight crafting tweak, soft classes...well actually a lot was done which i consider fluff.

Will still be a fantastic game if for only its clan seiges.  1.0 was a game built for a community that never existed unfortunately, no matter what the forum cries for a game like it would lead you to believe....those people always found an arbitrary reason not to play 1.0...and i fear 2.0 is a big step away from that hardcore sandbox game and a bit step towards easy mode / easy graitifcation.

 It may not have full loot ( which is cool btw ) but to me a REAL PvP game is Planetside 2 , where being social means you taking bases and keeping them ect, massive sandbox world and has THE best game world I have ever seen , even better than the first Darkfall.

 

Oof! The best game world you've ever seen is a huge statement. While it's purely opinion, I have to disagree with this, for me personally.

Planetside2, much like Planetside1, has a very stagnant and unchanging world. The colors on the map definitely change, and the feel of each base is different depending on what team your on, but other than that it really isn't all that interactive. The buildings are copypasta from here to there and the bases have a very similar feel (most of them). The two continents I played were identical in playstyle.

Guild Wars 2's is vastly more detailed, albeit as instanced as it is. Even WoW's detail trumps anything Planetside2 set out to accomplish.

 

More on topic, without being social, you can't so much as own a hamlet (small player holding) in Darkfall. Sieges take immense planning and players are there for a purpose. In smaller-time non-zergy sieges, each player holds the victory and if they do their best, either they win or they walk away from a great fight and learn new strategies for next time.

Planetside2's world is one without loss. It's PvP is without loss. No fear. You die with little no penalty to your character whatsoever. Aside from that, you can play the game without saying a single word to anyone and succeed (not recommended).

 

Darkfall:UW and Planetside2 are almost too different to compare. Darkfall's depth is beyond Planetside2's, and that's just regarding personal belongings/inventory.

 

Clans in Darkfall define the world, whereas Planetside2 it seems that the whole entirety of the massive armies defines it. Darkfall is more personal, and rightly so. 

 

Planetside2 is an MMOFPS and D:UW is a MMORPG/FPS/thing. They're two different types of games, at least in my eyes.

 While i'll agree with you that DF:UW and PS2 are two different games, but saying the world in PS2 is stagnant and saying that WoW's world is better? Really? Come on, at least in PS2 you have thousands of players in a persistant world either flying , running, or driving, and the detail put into PS2 is actualy very nice and polished.

Thing is when you talk about Depth you went as far as items/inventory, thats not depth at all , thats a form of progression ,by defeating a player and looting his corpse , it's relative at best , because when you die to another player he will take your gear and the gear you just looted so no real depth at all.

But yeah your right , I guess dying afew times in PS2 and not able to take back a base that has resources for flight and mechanized transport is not a loss because you don't loose anything like you do in DF, and I don't know about you , but when someone kills me , I go out of my way to find that person LOL.

As far as player bases are concerned they are actualy putting that into the game, but I wouldn't go as far as saying copy and paste , because DF used alot of that, from the boring combat, horrible combat animations ect the list goes on and on, but hey , at least since the launch of PS1 2003 , the game is still going strong, can we say the same about DF? Last I checked that game was a ghost town because of those issues I mentioned.

I do hope they get it right for DF:UW , but seeing the combat and the " World " it leaves much to be desired , nothing special , hell even GW2 was fantastic for alittle while but got boring fast just seeing the same old same old combat animations of every other MMORPG all tied into one game , at least in games like PS2 you have a sense of team work, constant battles, and yes there are tactics that work and some that don't , you can have a well organized group of players take on anumber of bases against an army and still win depending on those tactics , so to answer your question, yes PS2 has alot of planning in squads to determine what is the best course of action.

The only thing that will turn alot of people off of DF is the griefers, but if they release a PvE server that might off set it abit, but then the players will see how horrible the animations are and wonder why they are playing this game in the first place.

Sory for the wall of text , but after playing DF , and after all the exploits , bugs and glitches the game had , you can't blame me for being careful with another one of Aventurine's games.

P.S A good example , take a look on how The Warz is doing, people hyped the crap outta that game and it frigan sucks! There's aleady petition going around about people trying to get their money back. Just be careful is all, because Aventurine's first forey into the mmorpg genre didn't go over very well.

 

What I meant about WoW's world being detailed was precisely the detail of the world. Each zone was different from the last, unique music, unique languages, cultures, dialogue, the list goes on. PS2 does not have a world, it has landscapes with buildings on it. If you think that Planetside2's world is as detailed or more so than that of WoW, AoC, LoTRO, GW, GW2, even DDO, then you do not know what the world detail is.

This is not me bashing PS2's world. I don't think diversity and detail of their continents was a goal of the game, the fighting was.

Depth in Darkfall is largely what is in your inventory. Depth is being able to possess massive amounts of equipment, boats, mounts, and crafting equipment to prepare for hundreds of different scenerios you will encounter. Building a great bank in Darkfall was difficult, especially in the beginning, where we saw players stealing mounts from each other out of desperation. We saw (and I personally witnessed) spies infiltrating enemy guilds and wiping a guild bank clean, essentially resetting the guild to nothing.

That is depth, and if you don't think so, then we have to agree to disagree. You say it's progression, and I agree with that. You don't start out with depth in many games. You build it.

 

I do not doubt the team management that goes on in Planetside2. What I do doubt is that it is more complex than Darkfall's. The clan system in Darkfall leads to harsh, "high school kids controlling armies" politics. It's rough. You may think you have been prepared for a fight, only to be ambushed by old "friends" that got paid to do so. The fights in Darkfall have a lot more riding on them than getting 30 points for infantry so you can run in a MAX suit.

 

That's my two cents, anyway.

No. The game has 5000 total subs which is different from 5000 on the server at the same time. I dont think it has ever had 5000 people on the server at the same time but I dont know how many subs the game had when it was released.

However it did originally have only one server and then added an NA server for a total of two.

At launch there were 10.000 concurrent online (server cap, when the queue was on 24/7).

I was in single battles that had over 400 participants. Wars with over a thousand at the same time, spread over different conflict areas.

 

So yes, the game supports 5000 people on a single server, no instances.

 

Here's a video from the early days. People lagging back and forth was severely improved since then. The first minute is really ll you need to watch, the rest is uninteresting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nso1eercZD0

You noly had to disable your sound and you got smooth FPS in battles with 1000's. If you set up your virtual RAM right you didn't even disconnect.

Heh, and people wonder why DF is criticisized as being a buggy POS?

Not only should things like that actually not even happen, but to have to use those as workarounds tell you what kind of amatuerish job was done coding in the first place.

It boggles the mind...

It gets that reputation from idiots who never played it.

Wanna name me another game that even attempts to have 1000 players in real time FPS combat? If the coding was amatuerish, the game wouldn't function.

Say what you want, but Darkfall is technologically one of the most advanced MMOs on the market. Most MMOs start to shit themselves when even 30 players are on screen. Darkfall manages thousands, with real time combat, without loading, zones, or instances.

mainly because the poly count is low and the graphics rather poor.

 

The better the graphics the more peoples pcs will shit themselves.

 

 

there are 2 types of mmo, imitators and innovaters.

planetside 2 barely handles 50 people on the same place(lag all over the place) and graphics are superbad imo

 

soooo I dont really understand how you can shit on Darkfall when it is the top concurent players on the server game(excluding EvE online because the commands there are really simple and it isn't FPS type like df and ps 2 are).

So, you are saying that SOE can't program? No s*** sherlock.

Not a good comparison.

And yes, Eve is the game to compare it to, since it is the only other single server game that comes to mind. Other games have many servers, instances and that stuff, so can't really compare those.

And comparing just the game functionality to Eve really shows how far AV has to go...

Basicly every game that tries to break the WoW trend has gotten top hype, i think this just shows the Dev that everyone it sick of the same old rubbish they been throwing our way.

Well i think thats just you having issue then with 50+ players in one place. Ive had 17 tanks + 38 players +12 aircraft on one side of a 3way battle in PS2, otherside had a little less players from what i could see and didnt lag at all. All in all there was 120-150 players in the one Outpost/short distance from it. With setting on High if i recall correctly.

 Then you need to upgrade your system stat, because earlier today I was in a battle with 14 tanks , 4 sunderers , and about 20 planes in the sky from three factions and about 400 people on the ground fighting for one base, and my FPS?40-50 , with all chaos breaking out, so what your saying is that, your computer needs some work , and if you think PS2 was laggy, then DF:UW will be worse, DF:UW has some great concepts sure , but the company just can't be trusted at all, the first DF was a unholy buggy mess of a game yet , people still bitch at SOE, Blizzard ,Ncsoft ect even though they had some SOME mess ups but not nearly as bad as the company working on DF or for that matter Hammerpoint interactive, yet people back the shitty companies up, and then complain about how they got ripped off , well then stop buying their freakin games, but noo they buy them and then further support them. Also you might want to turn your graphics up to high for PS2 to get better graphics , some textures are not in place yet , but very minor ones, I would'nt use the term superbad when talking about Graphics regarding PS2 , the DF Engine looks terrible compared ti newer better engines out there, maybe there's a reason they are not doing beta's? Because if they did people would avoid this game like the plague.

Then I am sorry guys but when I played PS2 2 months ago I got huge lags in battles 50+ and I have good PC + overclocked proc to 4.5ghz.

Also there is a HUGE difference between spending money on df subscription and spending it on other games. Df is pure adrenaline once you get used to it and is nothing like other games on market. So yeah even if it was the biggest shit engine/whatever I would still play it for some time because of the experience that is unforgettable. Too bad they are softcoring darkfall for the 99% population instead of catering to 1% that really like the game and can't imagine other mmos anymore.

Heh, and people wonder why DF is criticisized as being a buggy POS?

Not only should things like that actually not even happen, but to have to use those as workarounds tell you what kind of amatuerish job was done coding in the first place.

It boggles the mind...

Gotta love how everyone is comparing massive ps2 battles to massive DF battles.  There is a major difference however, its call CHARACTER CLIPPING.  In PS2 in a big battle the clipping is horrendous, yes they keep you over 40 fps, but the real problem is YOU CANNOT SEE the enemies just 50-100 yards in front of you, there are now invisible things shooting at you!   In DF they give you the OPTION to turn on clipping or not, either see your enemies and get some lag or not, in PS2 they just auto disappear the enemy, that is horrible.   The easiest way to see this in action is to use a jump pad, when you land all of a sudden who knows how many enemies, and friends all of a sudden pop up around you, problem is you can't see them before you jump, so you just don't know are there 0 guys or 20 guys YOU CANNOT TELL.  I like ps2 and will play it when it releases, but only until DF2 comes out, then planetside will just be another fps to play an hour or two a week when DF2 servers are down.  Planetside just doesn't have the depth that DF does.  

Think about it this way, in ps2 if your in a big battle and run out of ammo what do you do?  You suicide of course and are back in the action in less than 20 seconds.  In DF you would NEVER suicide, especially in a big battle.  PS2 the battles are fun enough but they are absolutely meaningless.  Just trading one static base for another over meaningless resources that unless your very bad at flying or driving YOU WILL NEVER RUN OUT OF.  DF you sieges are fought over resources all the time!  The world changes depending on who controls what.  Planetside is just zerg v zerg v zerg its fun, but nothing like DF and will lose its shine very quickly.

Also, you cannot compare the sieges in DF1 to PS2 as we are talking games made 4-5 years apart, if you wan't to compare you'll have to wait until DF2, where with multi-core support and only 1 character model massive siege warfare is looking less laggy than ever, but we'll have to wait a few weeks to find out.

After GW2 failed to keep their promise with the introduction of the gear treadmill this week...I started looking around for new game again since I was there for the WvW with no gear grind. Was pleasantly surprised when I found out about Darkfall  Unholy Wars! I will definitely be looking into this!

 

Oh btw, very interesting that this got top hype...the very same day that the information about the new gear tier in GW2 started to come out.
