The game is having trouble taking off, they have a bit of a fan following. also when the pre-order is only put on sale several hours prior to launch, and only limited copies, it makes life difficult
snyways, how are you ment to knwo when shop is online, when you are not allowed to refresh page, and forums where we are to be notified aint working because they are being hammered?
i doubt that
You have received a 10 minute block as per our warning:
"Users who refresh before timing out, open multiple windows or tabs, and hammer the system will be temporarily blocked. Please do not refresh unless you have timed out or you will lose your place in the queue".
Please try again later.

iT is a matter of money and business.
they are a small comapany trying to launch a game with limited funds and support. on this note, I am sure they will spend maximum available funds on providing slots for players. They would do this is to maximise future profits.
Risk vs Return
Why fund and support more servers then required, increasing bottom line. This is why most companies would implement a preorder, to just market demand. Also this is companies usually have a open beta.
This company though is on limited funds, meaning they cannot meet initial market demands. Once they have a stable income from launch, the number of servers will be ajusted for market demand. They would do this as soon as humanly possible as it will be something thet they whole income share is from.

Have you read the NDA? I believe if you had you would find you technacaly just did with this post in multiple ways, 3 atleast.
You think you haven't? well telling people, or leading people to the knowledge you have/had access to beta/alpha is in itself a breach of NDA for starters.
NDA is not just about sharing your screenshots and demos, it is also about sharing or expressing your knowledge, mechanics, opinions, experiences or involvment in the game.
Not that i really mind, i would like to know more, as i am smart and mature enough to make my own informed decisions, and not be influenced by others. But in doing so you could destroy public opinion of the game, and kill the game even before it launches.
Darkfall IS NOT for you if:
-Hate Indy (Independantly developed, aka non-industrial level) games
This could lead hundreds of people not even trying the game beacause they once bought an indy game and didnt like it
Hence why you agree to NDA that most companies place on its protucts in this market. It is not just put in place to protect the companies secrets, but you. They could not only kick you out of beta, ban you from playing on their game ever, or any of their future products. They could also sue you to damages for changing public opinion on their product. All they need to do is proove from your comments they lost possible future subscriptions, therefor revenue from their company.
I am sure they wouldn't in this case though, but this is to let you know how serious you should take a NDA. Instead of preaching to the public about the pro's vs con's of the game, you should maybe be getting more involed in the game, playing your part as a beta tester. Find flaws, bugs, areas of needed improvement of the game, log them, and post them on beta forums for the devs to look at.
This way, when the rest of us finally do get to play the game, and every beta tester has played their part, the game will be this bug, glitch free, sexy as, fun game to play. We can then all play together and enjoy the game to its maximum potential.
I just went through and read this whole thread and have finally decided to say something I have noticed over the last month or so, not just from this forum, but that of several, eg MO, DF.
You (some) people are publicly stating 'facts' from creditable sources like, 'YouTube' and 'Wikipedia'. /sarcasm. You (most) were all even to busy to notice that what seemed to be MO devs joined this thread and tried to get involved, and everyone just ignored them and tried to force their own concepts of the game onto each other. You want to know about the game, stop speculating, ask the devs, listen and demand answers. Developers are only going to publisise facts about their game for a few reasons I can think of. Basically advertising, and getting fans involved, and interested. To calm the mob, aka fans. Give them information, keep them quiet, let word of mouth spread
