OP  12/30/13 2:21:25 PM#1

I started playing MO again (now that my comp can run it real smoothly) and I love it.  Huge world, deep crafting and the combat isn't half bad either.  Im not a PVP'er but like the idea of having to watch my back all the time.  I love exploration, Sandbox PVE stuff and crafting.  Which should I choose from?  

I played DF and liked that as well.  Just thought Id get some opinions on the 2 games compared to what I desire most.

I would honestly say neither, go play Skyrim.. Lol

IMHO both of the games have good aspects, but neither is GOOD. They're OKAY at best, in my opinion. Although, I'd play DF:UW if it was F2P, or even B2P.. I kind of miss it, but I refuse to pay a monthly fee for it.

 

My honest opinion is DarkFall. I've played them both.. Although I didn't get far in MO, from what I could see, DF is better.

HAHA...yeah, played Skyrim til Skyrim told me to get a life....Way too many hours on it and don't want to play it anymore.  Also, I want the MMO feel especially in a risk reward environment, but one that has as many PVE elements as possible as well.  Call me a glutton for punishment :P

Well I think MO is more of a sandbox than DF... they have local banks, local AH, local everything while DF has global banks, etc... This creates a much more alive economy... Also, in MO, the crafting is way better and deeper... Theres alot of PvE profesions like tamers, miners, alchemists (this one is really hard for new players), cooks, etc.

 

Melee combat with MO is way better and more skill based, with directional blocking/parrying and counter attacks... but since magic in MO is a placeholder Id say DF has a better magic system...

which one would you say has more PVE content?  Not quests, but just PVE content

I thought MO was one of the worst MMORPGs I have ever tried. Haven't touched DF.

DF:UW hands down. Good game if you can find a good clan and can put the hours in.

It used to be very buggy but they fixed most of the bugs now, and the game is shaping up pretty well, next year its gonna release on steam so its getting improved alot....

and OP, the PvE in MO is not that great compared to the PVP.... some mobs got glitchy AI and pathing, I dunno about DF pve tho...

I played DF for a few years and I loved it. I just got to a point where I wanted more, so I started exploring games and now Wurm has me hooked.

I've tried both before.

I like Mortal Online's crafting system a bit better than Darkfall's, and I like how the resources are spread out through the map, and the incorporation of the ability to "steal" and the lack of a safezone is definitely a positive, as is the free to play mode (though it's obviously pay-to-win), but Darkfall Unholy Wars is simply superior. It's just more polished and has a better development team, it's more promising. 

In the end I don't play either anymore, haven't played Darkfall in around 6 months and I haven't played Mortal Online in about 8 or so, but as of my opinion in regards to memory, Darkfall is superior. Stay away from both if you can manage it though.

DF:UW isn't perfect by any means and has one of the worst developers in the world behind it (Aventurine)... but it is still a fun game and somewhat polished.

Mortal Online is a massive turd in comparison.  MO has a lot of cools ideas...but they are implemented about as well as a 10th grade computer science class project.   SV however is a much better company.

I think your pain is yours to have but dont you think suggesting that AV is worse then all the AAA developers is a bit much?

Zenimax for example perhaps?

IMO Darkfall seems more like a turd than MO... yeah it might be more polished, but the game srsly looks like wow graphics wise and their class system is atrocious, only thing I liked is their magic system, melee was really a joke...

 

Also MO devs are way more involved in their community than the AV guys... actually answering questions in the forums and such... they really care about their game

I wouldn't touch either of them again with a 10 foot pole.

Playing now: WoW, Landmark, GW2

Got a refund: Archeage. First refund since I started MMOs.

Top 3 MMORPGs played: UO, AC1 and WoW

Honorable mentions: AO, LotRO and GW2.

I bought DF:UW when it was on sale. Played it for a couple of hours and found out a couple of things:

1. AV still hasn't got the faintest clue of how to design a UI.

2. The world is still devoid of almost anything remotely interesting (it's HUGE so the interesting stuff might be just hidden really well).

3. Combat doesn't feel "right". When I swing my sword it passes through the enemy and only half a second later I know if I hit it or not. And no, it's not my Internet connection that is at fault.

4. Someon thinks it's alright to put stone walls around a city where there are 10 buildings and 6 people living in.

5. Graphics are quite pretty, especially the environment.

It's quite clear to me DF:UW is a guild vs guild PvP game and has little to offer outside of that. As someone who spent a crapload of time in UO just sitting in a tavern and chatting, building roadblocks out of crates made by myself and generally living in a world that felt like a real fantasy world, DF:UW is severely lacking.
