I paid a large sum of money for Darkfall back in the day on a whim. Because of that, I get to play DFUW for a mere 14.99....... I played it AS A SOLO PLAYER for 2 weeks hardcore.
The game is as broken as Darkfall 1.0
The concept of the game doesn't work. There is literally no way you can get a large following based on open PvP because you FORCE players to join large clans who are active.
Even if you join a clan, ANY form of solo play is the baseline for failure. The game revolves around survival of the fit. Literal terms........... You play solo? You are doomed.... Group of 2+ will rape you! Wanna play with a friend? Group of 3+ will rape you! Wanna play with a family? Maybe 3-10 players? Great! You will be raped eventually by a bigger force.
The game revolves around who is organized and has numbers. [mod edit]
The game is nothing but a deathmatch of who has the most units.
Unfortunately, the MMORPG has come to a peak and all we get is watered down this and that and occasionally a game that tries to be different. I will give Darkfall effort for trying. This genre needs a change or a unique view, unfortunately, Darkfall isn't it.
6/10 is my final rating!

You played DF and for some reason expected DFUW to be different?
You then rag on the game as if it were the devil incarnate and then give it a 6/10.....
Expresso gave me a Hearthstone beta key.....I'm so happy :)

lol..... I cant even see the reasons he doesnt like it other then he wants to play solo.
Tip: If you want to play solo try a single player game... (Like Skyrim)

Yea, games like DFUW you don't play solo, and are not designed to play solo. It seems you understood this but still decided to play. It's like going into a themepark and complaining about all the quests.
To anyone who tries this game, and is branching out from your normal play style, remember that this is a social PvP centric game. So you need to join a guild to have long term success out of the safe zone.
Embrace that or don't bother playing; you will not be able to force a solo-centric play style onto a Guild v Guild PvP game...

"GUYS I AM MAD!
I want to be able to 1v4 good players even though I am just average in skill, gear and character level. THEREFORE THIS GAME IS TERRIBLE!"
I don't understand this logic where people are AMAZED at the fact that they cannot run around solo and defeat large groups of people without:
1) Being Very skilled
2) Using top quality gear
3) Having an advanced character
Any game that allows people to go around by themselves and be immune to getting jumped by a larger number of players is not a sandbox MMO. And yes, I have largely played DFUW solo without my clan's help.
What do I do?
1) Find isolated locations
2) Always prepare an escape plan
3) Listen very carefully and keep my eyes open
4) Never let myself get too comfortable
Have I been jumped? Sure. Has it happened often enough to make it a problem? Hell no. If you are constantly getting jumped by large groups of players you are not being careful enough. Sorry.
