IF you are looking for a great game i would try Darkfall online .
Just like to say that Darkfall is up and running and you can play it now. Had a hard time getting in the game when it started even tho i was a beta tester ,,, I could not get in the game ,, because the store was always down.
So i gave up on it, even tho , the game has everything i wanted in a mmo. Then i heard all the hacks and said forget the game now .. to my girl.
So months go by ,, then i get a email say darkfall online is up and running in the usa. So i buy the game and start playing, and its the best mmo ever made as of today . No hacks that i see,, and if you do see a hack just do this /gm_report first name here last name here>>then a message about what the person is doing.
This game has reason, and with out reason a game is no good.
So now me and my girl are both on the game she loves it i like it . Lots to learn in this game . Its a game where you watch and see your toon get a name for them selfs.
But if you are the TYPE that likes a game to end ,,, then this game is not for you ,,, you would be better off playing games that start at the end of the game!
This game is for someone to live in it not get mad because it takes you along time to get something.
Takeing a long time to do something is very rewarding when you do get something ,, because everyone in the game has to work just as hard to get the same thing you just did .
I dont know why anyone would ever stop playing this game . I been on the gameing world for about 13 years or more, and played every mmo out to date.
All other mmos are all the same mmo with a diff name,,,, BUT >>>>DARKFALL ONLINE<<<< IS THE BEST GAME YOU WILL EVER PLAY !
Darkfall was at first a bad game , now it is the best game ever made trust me . There is a north american server .
I played all most every mmo out and this one is the best . I was the beta tester for this game but after beta i got mad because i never got in the game. Store was always down.
Now there is no problems and the skill system is great. Everything is great dont know how in the world that someone could not like the best mmo ever made .
But if you do come on DARKFALL ONLINE. then here is some starter info for you , the game is hardcore, but you dont have to be hardcore , you gain str from lumberjacking and mineing and swimming, you gain stam. to from all the diff types of skills.
Dont hit your team mate back in this game more then two times , two hits from you will make you roge long enought for them to kill you . Best place in the game is the Dwarf lands , they tend to stand by each other better then anyone else.
Just come give it a try i know you will love it , Because there is reason in this game for everything you do, not just going around asking any enemys around to kill for nothing hehehe.
This game you take what you want and lose what you dont want. Fighting for land and sea is great . just try it you will love it!

Anyway, the PvP is realm vs realm. From 1-20 there is basically no PvP outside of duels. At 20 you start heading into zones where "rifts" open. Rifts basically are gateways that allow players from the opposing faction to raid your faction's "PvE" areas. There is almost always a rift open somewhere, although the presence of a rift is easily identifiable. This, in my opinion, solidifies this as a PvP game. After level 20 you really are never truly safe from the PvP aspect of the game if you want to continue leveling up.
At 25 you have access to a huge area called "The Abyss". It's a huge, open world PvPvE zone that both faction have access to. This basically means that the combat is between two players faction, the Elyos and the Asmodians... as well as an NPC faction that adds a random element to the gameplay (and acts as a balancing factor). The Abyss mobs/quests grant more experience and are generally weaker than like level mobs in "PvE" zones. The idea being to reward players w/ participating in an open PvP zone. Also, both PvP and PvE inside the Abyss grant Abyss points(AP)... which are used to buy the best PvP gear and items in the game. The more AP you have, the higher your rank. The higher your rank, the more AP points your worth to your enemy. When you die, you lose AP points(the higher your rank the more you lose). This creates a sort of player skill cap where a person balances out (your earning/losing). Some of the best Abyss items require lots of AP, so only good/smart players who can obtain higher amounts of AP will be able to afford them.
In the Abyss there are also Fortresses and Relics each side fights for control over.
Relics have unique powers that, when used, affect all players of the controlling sides faction. These powers are impressive/useful enough that they can really play a factor in the outcome of battles, so its in the interest of both factions to control as many relics as possible.
Fortresses have time-span's where they are seizable. You do this by laying siege to the fortress, breaching the outer door, and then killing a raid type boss that lies within the fortresses interior. There are also forcefield type generators in fortresses that prevent air raids, these are important to defenders because it creates a choke-point of defense. By taking out the shield generator the fortress can be breached from the air as well, which causes it to be intensely difficult to defend. Successful fortress sieges award medals, which are used to buy some of the best PvP Abyss gear. Owning a fortress grants the capturing Legion(guild) a large monetary value which basically simulates "taxes", as well as provides your faction with a local trading/crafting(? i think) hub deep inside the Abyss. This is important because the game's fast travel system can be a real drain on your bank account. The reward system is good enough to drive the siege system continuously, which is a great thing.
As for the level grind, its not too bad. Worse than some games, better than others. There are enough quests in the newer versions to take you to cap w/ a minimal amount of grinding. The Abyss + Rifts break up the grind pretty well by adding a nice random PvP encounters to the game. I'm not terribly big on the PvE leveling grind "fun factor", as I've never played an MMO where I actually found that particularly interesting... but its not horrible. Individual fights move a little slower than I'd like (ie the time it takes to take down a single mob, not the speed of gameplay). I find levels 1-25 to be pretty painful, not because they take a long time, but because its all PvE and your characters skill-sets aren't fleshed out enough to really "enjoy" them yet. That's just my opinion though.
The real grind is going to be from getting AP and siege medals to buy Abyss gear, or collecting enough materials to make the best crafted armor(which is really good). Also the money/item grind to enchant all your stuff to +10 and properly socket it with the appropriate gems is going to take forever as well. However, if you -enjoy- the PvP, it really shouldn't be that big of a deal. It will definitely keep PvPers busy for along time.
PvP combat is fast and interesting, but not so fast that the game is frustrating. Movement and kiting are encouraged and rewarded, so its not the slug it out non-movement type of PvP that a lot of asian game's are. Arial combat adds another level of strategy to the game, although melee is somewhat at a disadvantage in this aspect. Heavy consumable usage rewards the prepared, which may or may not be a good thing depending on the type of gamer you are. The combo system requires the player to make unique choices based on the situation that can largely effect the outcome. Class balance is pretty solid, better than most games. And the game touches a nice balance between actual player skill and gear affecting the outcome.
I don't have much opinion about the PvE raids or dungeons. I think they are a weaker part of the game on the whole, but NCSoft seems to be pushing more PvE content into the game. Some of them combine PvP elements into them, and some of them combine performance based rewards that seem pretty interesting (ie the faster you clear the dungeon the better loot). But I haven't actually got to play w/ any of that stuff so I can't tell you how well its really done.
As for the preorder, I'd recommend it. You can try out the game in the beta tests and see if you like it. if you don't, just cancel your preorder. You also get a 3-day headstart on leveling (being ahead of the leveling pack will be a boon in an open PvP environment like the Abyss), and if you preorder the collectors addition you get a couple nice items... most noticably a unique set of level 30 wings that will end up saving you a bunch of gold as you won't have to spend a ton on the level 30 ones you buy in-game(kinda like getting a free epic mount in wow).
Thats good that the zone is for lvling because this way you need your race to fight for you so you can lvl .
PERFECT PVP ASPECT, NOT JUST RUNNING AROUND KILLING FOR NOTHING . YOU AND THEM ARE KILLING SO SOME CAN LVL THERE CHARACTOR . EVERY GAME THAT HAS PVP MEANS NOTHING IF THERE IS NOT A REASON BEHIND IT. LIKE GAURDING OR TAKEING SOMETHING .
