OP  11/23/12 11:35:08 PM#1

I am worried because the game is 3 weeks from launch.  Why is it not available for preorder?  Other then the blog videos there is no advertising.  The game looks amazing and finally made it more streamline but the darkfall website is beyod basic, we have no information on how we are going to obtain our free copy being a former darkfall owner, and there is no way for people interested to purchase the game yet.  Some people are going to be strapped for cash during the month of December (not me but just thinking from a financial perspective) and the earlier you get the pre-order ability out the better for AV.

Anyone else Hyped, will be playing this for a long time if they hold true to what they have been advertising.

The game is only being advertised to the people who already own it because AV only has 2 servers that can only sustain 10k concurrent players, which means an avg of about 15k players from multiple time zones, or about 30-50k total. They probably won't sell it to the general public for at least the first month.

To the poster above me, you will have to buy it. DFO didn't go sub only until development for that game stopped completely.

You weren't clear in your post. I thought you were saying that others wouldn't have to buy the game. My mistake.

Indeed the reason why it is not for sale is because all you must do is have bought Darkfall. If you have bought Darkfall 1, all you must do is subscribe to login and download the new client once it is released. Patience my friends, this is going to be the best mmo sandbox to date!

So they never would have updated darkfall to the point they are updating darkfall without charging people for the new game they are calling a new game, but giving away to those that bought the old game?  Still doesn't make sense.  It is like they have withheld updates from darkfall in order to say new game, but really it is just a massive update to old game.  It is even being sold like an update to the old game, because it isn't being sold to those that bought the old game.

It doesn't make sense to you. Heres why its being called a new game. Think of how different GW1 and GW2 are in terms of game play and some core design features. While the difference between DFO and DF:UW isn't that drastic, enough core features have been changed or altered to make it a new game. Furthermore, another resaon why its a new game rather than an expansion is because the core code has been fundementally altered as well.

Based on what they have shown and described so far, it does indeed look like an entirely new game. Kind of sucks for those of us who have played for years, had a fatty bank and so on, since we lose all the time that we put in to the creation of our awesome characters, but on the flipside, DF 1 was dying a slow and painful death.

The new order of things looks like it will give a few carebear aspects, user friendly GUI, enhanced crafting system and a defined role system that will likely go a long, long way when it comes to attracting "normal" MMO gamers and encouraging long term play. While it may seem "dumbed down" for those of us that got used to and embraced the "hardcore" aspect of the game, the overall changes are dramatic enough that it should attract a lot of newer players, as well as some of the older ones that got fed up and left before.

As for why it is not on sale yet, I am going to guess that while AV is happy to accept the community wrath (and subsequent publicity) that comes with missing an announced date, be it for interviews or release,  they are wise enough to know that puling the same stunts after you have taken money leads to an entirely different outcome.

You are not the only one who is confused sometimes Tasos calls it a "expansion" or "patch" also in interviews but always adds how it is a "new game".

Its a marketing stance , all this hype wouldn't have been created without all this  "new-ness" .

Beside that  now he could shutdown the server for a month without much explanation ..i would say it was a win-win for Tasos to call it a "new game" ..for the customers tho ...well Av don't care about them...

You are absolutely right, they indeed withheld updates from the game and for the paying subscriber for like 2 years...

WTF??? Really???

I cannot buy or play this game unless I have the original????

This is the dumbest decision I could think of (from a marketing point-of-view)

To hell with you - players and game - you don’t want me and I don’t want you

I will play other games who do want my money and time....

Just my 2 cents...

What makes you think you wont be able to play on launch day? obviously you can play the game like everyone else only exception is you have to buy the client if you didn't play the original version.

Because there is a very strong possibly that they will do a limited launch, just like the first time around and if I was them I might consider making the new game available first to the returning player base and then to new subscribers later if initial server performance is going to be a concern. Remember, it appears they are going live without a stress test, it would be only prudent for them to carefully monitor and control the rate in which players join the game, especially if they get unexpectedly greater demand.

Arrogant, Condescending, Dismissive, Elitist, "Meany", you speak as if these are bad things?

You guys are blowing this way out of proportion. You are creating false rumors.

Let me tell you the truth, as simple as it is:

You will be able to play the game at launch. If you did not play Darkfall 1 (if you did not buy the game) you WILL have to buy the game to play Unholy Wars. It's that simple! There is nothing else to worry about. If you have bought DF1, you can download and play Unholy Wars. If you have not bought DF1, all you must do is buy the game and boom! You're playing.

Calm down and be patient.
