My favorite was this in the answer to Question 1...

"Our first priority is getting the game ready for release."

WHAT WHAT WHAT? I though Tasos said the game was ready to release, better yet that it was ready to release and in better condition than any other game at release, back in November? Was he lying? If it was ready back then, how can he still be getting it ready now??

Seems like they think they already have an "open" beta but they say there is no place for everyone... I wouldn't call 10K people or so an open beta when 300K want in.

Let's just hope they release the game this time because if they don't Avi will loose all the credibility they had after this.

I agree.  I whish Jon would have called him on that one.

Sooo, whatever happened to everyone will get to try this game for free before buying. The 'trial' is nothing more than a closed beta and from the look of all the patch notes they're still fxing/tweaking stuff like mad. This game was supposedly in beta with professional testers who couldn't find the hundreds of bugs reported in the closed beta? Seriously?

So, no OPEN beta, no free trial, still no NDA lift with 12 days to release. Then a limited number of pre-orders, no word from their publisher at all, no word on what the limit of pre-orders is.

This has to be the most bizarre way of running an on-line game company. Besides the fact that Tasos said they would never do pre-orders, wouldn't you want an unlimited number of them to gauge how much infrastructure you need to scale to? Did their publisher pull funding and aventurine only has enough hardware to start a limited release?

There are a lot of features of this game that appeal to me. The way the the release is being handled, not so much.

"We will of course facilitate the migration of N. American players if they choose to join the N. American servers when these become available. There will be more information on this shortly."


Thank you, someone finally asked the question I've been wondering since I heard about everything being based in Europe. I used to play WoW from Japan, never had any issues what-so-ever with the distance. Hopefully this will be the same way.

This project is the biggest joke ever.

It's going to end up making Dark and Light look like a masterpiece.

Limited orders????  Is that for REAL?

So basically....

They do not have the ability to launch or support a MMORPG obviously but yet they are still going ahead and taking limited pre orders so that all the morons who do actually pre order can help them pay for development and support?

Don't forget its not only a limited number of pre-orders...its a limited number of copies at launch as well. You'd better be first in that virtual line I guess

TASOS: "There will be a limited number of pre-order copies of Darkfall offered, and a limited number of copies available at launch."

"If we don't attack them, they will attack us first. So we'd better retaliate before they have a chance to strike"

Hate to break it to you Tasos old boy.. but there's no way in hell your game will EVER make it to North American servers.

MMORPG.com: Has any progress been made in moving toward a North American launch date after the European date of the 25th?

Tasos: We’ve been looking at this, but we don’t have anything to announce yet. As I mentioned above, this is a serious commitment in resources and infrastructure, and we need the time to do as good a job as possible.


 

What's real funny is that this same guy not so long ago was saying that he had to turn down several offers from high profile publishers for the USA.

and on top of that it looks like AudioVisual is not even involved with them anymore. smart move by them.

I guarentee the "Limited Pre-Orders" is just a ploy to get more people to buy them... People will think "Oh my there is a limited number, I better buy mine right  away so I get one!"

Well if it's going to be released on time then start planning what game you will be waiting for next... I see DF failing big if they release it but it's going to be amusing watching people that praised it complain about it.

Of course, we’ve also added hundreds of extras to the game that the players are not expecting and will continue to do so throughout the lifecycle of the game.

 

 

But he couldnt name atleast one...I believe this whole interview was just another way to get people talking about the game.. cause it seems  the forums around here were starting to forget about dfo..

PATHETIC!

Either that or they're running low on cash and it's something like a pay for beta thing.

Are they planning to tell folks how many this may be?


 

         Isnt the usual strategy to try and get as many people as possible??/ Its hard for me to beleive that they will turn away any paying customers.......I dont know its just hard for me to believe anything Tasos says..... He just strikes me as your typical phony salesman that you cant beleive a word he says.......

"If men were created equal, then what happened to game developers?"

 I was kinda rooting for DarkFall, but after that interview, it kind of left a bad taste in my mouth. I thought this game was feature complete and ready to ship? If so, what the hell is going on with them. And why was AudioVisual dropped, or better yet not mentioned at all. Ive never hated on any game is this forum because I like games in general. I dont ever take them seriously. But this game is really starting to turn into a mess. Do they even want an MMORPG, or are they just wanting to create a game thier family can play, and just there family. I mean seriously, Ive never heard a company who sets out to make money say they will only have limited pre-orders and boxes at launch. They basically just made it impossible for thier game to succeed. I mean, what was the talk about 10,000 concurrent users per server. I guess they only want one server? I'm just so confused. Does Tasos have multiple personality syndrome or what?

The intervue also made it pretty clear that simply, "throwing up more servers" isn't a solution.

The infastructure is a lot more complex when you're talking about getting 10k+ people playing at the same time.  Ask the guys at CCP about it, they've been working, and developing technology for the same thing. 

I dought they want to find themselves with 50k people all trying to get into the game and play at the same time.  Anyone know what CCP's record is for concurant players?  How long have they had to work on thier server tech?
