The new darkfall is quite toned down on the hardcore aspects? Quite toned down sounds like a lot. I havent read or seen any gameplay vids that directly indicates this. Just because changes and limitations are added doesnt mean it makes the overall experience less hardcore as theres always more sideeffects.
Sure there has been some changes, but for instance if you want access to the best nodes you'll have to go to risk areas - pvp safe areas near cities have no nodes with rare drops. Yes they added roles, but it wasnt any more hardcore before simply because everyone was specced the same (flavor of the year) and fought the same depending on the situation. On top of this they made the gameplay easier with scripts and macros. Pluss they even removed the instant casts now.
I'd still say DF is a hardcore game in the sense that it requires dedicated players to succeed, not being afraid to take a hit to the head.
It's still hardcore compareted to most other mmos, but not even close to what it was...and the new version not as close as MO, thats the point I was making, its not hardcore enough anymore to compare to MO.
