That makes no sense. If you supposedly corrected the areas, the players wouldn't be submitting bug reports on it.

 

The game has been in full debug mode for a while now until recently, meaning that everything a player does is being logged so the devs can look over it.

Thus, they can correct things that the players don't even realize are being recorded.

One other thing. Are you going to be the one left out and not abe to play when the game launches. How long will it take for you to get in? I have never seen that in any launch for any other mmo. Does anyone know if that has ever happened before?

ARAC stands for Any Race Any Class. The "class" part doesn't really apply to DF but the overall meaning of it still holds for the topic. Some games have had limitations on which races could interact peacefully, such as the racial servers in EQ. If I remember correctly on those servers you could only group and guild with players of your own race (Dark Elf, High Elf, Dwarf, etc.)

When you have loads of cash, yes, but it's obvious that Aventurine is lacking the money and resources right now to support all who want to play. If I can't get in at launch and have to wait for them to get more servers up and running, so be it, as long as they keep patching like they have been the past month I think the game will do just fine.

Cool, good read.  You guys serious in this thread though?  Man the amount of time you devote to being negative about this game is just insane.

Good interview, Tasos is a nice and cool guy actually, making a new different mmorpg in spite of all the hatred and mockery he is constantly subject to.

I like how he's always answering calmly to people who think they have the right to demand anything and bitch hysterically for ages about a game they don't deserve to play anyway, and not knowing aught about developping but what they read from other haters.

Tasos you're the man, keep firm in the eye of the cyclone, lead your ship through this ocean of mud, don't listen to trolls chanting and cursing, when we'll eventually touch the shore, a new era of sandbox mmorpg will begin and true players will be at your side and thank you gratefully for what you have been through and what you brought us.

You can't just throw up more servers when everyone logs into the same place.  It's ONE world; so they have to have an infastructure able to support 10's of thousands of players at the same time.
 

So no, you can't use the typical strategy of push as many boxes as you can.  You gotta go with, push as many as your infastructure is able to handle, and add more as you're able.

500k boxes doesn't do them any good if no one can play the game cause the servers don't work with 50k+ logged in at once.  Just because you can fit 1k people into a nightclub at once doens't mean you should allow more then the 300 allowed; just ask P. Diddy.

Player housing consolidated into guild housing?

The one shred of hope for this game that remained has now been snubbed out forever.

Buhbye DF.

Can you give us any more details on pre-order plans?

Ummm this doesn't sit well with me...  It's going to be a RAGE fest when 250000 people don't get in to the official release.

Zayne3145 spreading his WoW propaganda BS on every forums and hate posts whenever possible. As if carebear players like you were really interested in DF except for trolling amock. This new distortion of facts doesn't surprise me, but why do you pretend to care about housing when your favorite game offers the least freedom imaginable in a mmorpg and is the total opposite of sandbox?

Dude you have no customization, RP is inexistent, no house, no nothing for your guild except a chat room... and a guild bank 3 years after launch. So wtf are you here to lie about the feature of a game you don't even want to play?

Are we really back to comparing DF to DnL after all the beta leaks?  Or are you just trying to stir the pot..

Oh come on, you seriously think they're going to implement it? I would bet my life it'll never see the light of day again. Everything Tasos says needs to be taken with not so much a pinch, but rather a deluge, of salt,

And yes, you're right - I did say goodbye to DF long ago, but a tiny part of me was still interested. This news has pretty much cemented my view on the game now. I'll still follow these threads, though - nothing beats DF drama for entertainment.

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.


 

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."


 

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?

 
 

CCP broke the 50k people last weekend on their event, they have been creeping up daily over the last few months.


While I understand that many people here are still sceptical after Tasos interview, much that he's said like they are changing things daily happens to be close to the mark, as I have a few RL friends who I have played games with for a good few years in beta who are keeping me updated daily.


I have been hearing that they are have had issues with the likes of the towers but are resolving these and that they implemented them to prevent bank ganking by clans and forcing players to run back to their starter cities and have to waste time running back to their previous place all the time.


As for many people who appear to be disappointed that we have not heard any feed-back, now we have some plate feed information it appears to still be insufficient to at least quash the fact that it's vaporware.
I think it must be difficult for someone who is clearly not a PR expert to turn off his tech head and put on a PR head to please the masses and I am glad I am not in his position as he is unable to please anyone. While everyone can see he's made mistakes and god knows none of us ever do that's for sure reading these boards!!


I think we need to give this guy some slack, obviously they are working flat out to try and provide a game to please many and okay he may not please 25% of the people who are waiting for this game but at least he is fully committed and that has to be a good thing for the potential players wanting to invest in this product.
I wish I could be as excited as many of the people who really want/hope/expect this to be a brilliant game and successful too and I too hope it does at the very least achieve what CCP have managed to do and provide something new for folks to try.


Listening to many of the comments from the NA side of the pond, many of you intend to be there from day one, the question is how will this effect the servers, now I am aware he has already said they have many in beta from NA. It would be nice for people all over the globe to get a chance when it finally goes live, not just limited areas and I hope they do look at this to get a fair balance as with time zones ect it would be good to have active people 24/7 to keep this game rolling.


I'm not sure if this game will be a hit or not, but I hope that it gets a fair jury when it does go live and that people don't bash it for the sake of not looking like plonkers after being on one side of the fence or the other. I am sure that the fact some people feel Tasos is a serial killer rather than a game developer having read some of the post on this site over the last few months.


Though I doubt he's even read or bothered about the comment/insults and other derogative things which have been directed at him personally, I have been smiling over the last few days reading a few old posts and it appears if he was in court he would of been found guilty of more charges than most of the people who have committed many sad offences in our cruel world to date. Seems he would of had the chair many moons ago...

Funny how we tend to judge and persieve how people are without even meeting them.
