Tasos Flambouras, Darkfall's Associate Producer, checks in to talk about "Conquer the Seas," Darkfall's first expansion pack.

 

Screenshot

 

MMORPG.com: Overall what is your favorite part of the expansion? What do you think players will like the most?

Tasos Flambouras: My favorite part is the sea element because of its awesome potential to add a completely new gameplay layer to Darkfall and I think that most players will also appreciate it. I also believe that everyone will appreciate the skill extensions, and the significant monster improvements. A lot of players will enjoy the improvements to melee and archery.

There’s a bit for every play-style in this expansion so different players will like different things.

Read it all here.

I resub'd and the game is actually getting better, and this expansion will surely fix several things.

 Great article guys. The game is developing wonderfully

 

To think the haters were stating the game would shut down in 6 months....lol....they are actually hiring new people and moving into a bigger building. 

 

Unlike some games....

I have yet to play Darkfall a decision I knew I would have to make looking at this game at release as it didn't have most of what I heard about that interested me in the game.  But again I will say I have been impressed with Aventurines progress with the game since launch from the looks of things they have been very proactive in adding depth to the game unlike most mmo companies with struggling products.  I feel like within a years time DF may have the rich sandbox elements I read about and hopefully by that time the community will have grown beyond the average pvp players they have now which is another reason I haven't subbed to this point.

This game is evolving in a wonderful way. It's hard not too see the love that is being put into it.

I'm thrilled they are actually expanding their offices, and that subs are on the up. It's well deserved.

Frankly I smell more spin.

How can a game with such a low population be getting anywhere?

It's actually quite simple

WAR - 10 offices for 10 programmers
DF - 1 office for 10 programmers

Apply this philosophy for every single part of the business........and voila'
We unveiled the trick. of course you need to be a business genious to figure this out.

And by the way DF now has 2 servers as opposed as the only one they had at launch.
This too is a wicked marketing strategy?
That one won't be cheap one though, because renting 10 or more powerful servers (to make the clouded server, which is what DF use) ain't exactly cheap.
So if they opened a new server, the reason is because they had enough people to fill both, not because they wanted to show off.

I didn't play DF for 3 months, but I am back and I plan to stay for a while, I am sure lots of people did the same.

I played the first month of the EU release and beta.  I quit a few weeks after launch.

I resubbed recently and have witnessed many improvements along with great communication from the devs.  Darkfall is getting better as time goes by - ala EVE.

Keep up the good work AV.

Serious death penalties makes every close call an adrenaline rush, and every minor achievement a major victory. This alternative rule-set should be in all MMORPGs.

How can a game with such a low population be getting anywhere?

 

They spend everything on the game. they get a lot of grief for it, but they know spending money on the game is the best thing in the long term.

Lets look at Warhammer.

How much money was spent flying Paul, Josh and and Hickman in Business class around the world in  for years before the game launched?

How much was spent setting up MASSIVE stands at every games event for the year building up to the launch of the game?

How much money was spent advertising the game on all the gaming websites? Remember when they got a full screen ad on wowhead.com?

How much was spent on the HUGE number of servers that they had to close down?

How much was spent on all the Community staff who were hired to watch the forums of the fan sites?

How much was spent on all the marketing staff?

Warhammer spent MASSIVE amounts of money on stuff that had nothing to do with the game and everything to do with hype. it worked. they tricked a lot of people into buying the game, but they left a month or two later.  AV spent their tiny budget on the game. Yes it had problems. Yes they didn't communicate. Yes things have been a pain in the ass. But they knew spending everything they had on the game would be for the best in the long term.

DF has the chance to become one of the rare MMOs to constantly grow rather than boom, bust and close.
