If people are wanting to see a video containing a large number of players in open field combat then this is one to look at. Its a video I made about 1 month after NA1 release, we were all still fresh characters and bearly had any high level magic at all. My character was a crafter only, and had no PVP skills to speak of. 

Technically this is just a crafting character standing back and filming an epic fight.

Adun, we need the story to be completed!  Often simply surviving to fight again another day was a massive achievement, one sadly lost in so many MMOS where once a fight is joined there is no possibility of escape / evasion.

A master archer in action

Some players in Darkfall 1.0 were truely lethal with bow, Adun was one of them.  Our clan orders were "if he goes near water, mount up and get away from him".  While I am not in this video, some of my friends are, and as the video demonstrates it was a mistake to underestimate a skilled Archer in Df 1.0.  With the improved systems, one of the community's greatest hopes is that archers will again be able to hold thier own, which due to changes in magic (some of which are confirmed as being removed from Df:UW) was not the case in the late game in Df 1.0.

Easy mode PvP with a godlike character spamming rays with a darkscepter. Post worthy these days?

Yes, because it shows how much of a big deal it is that Darkfall : Unholy Wars will not have attack ray spells any more.  When people say "this is the same game with a couple new animations and pretty things added" you can point them to such videos and inform them that actually Darkfall 1.0 suffered from some serious design blunders along the way in the life of that game, and then point them to the Q&A on Darkfall's Forums where you can see that Aventurine has stepped up to fix the rubbish like the instant ray spam.  This really will be a new game, and promises to be what Darkfall always should have been but never quite was.

The ozzies are comming to Darkfall : Unholy Wars!  Woot :)  I remember these guys from a long time ago, sure they terrified the heck out of me but then a game needs "qualtiy reds" :)

It is awesome to see some of the old names dusting off thier old FRAPS in anticipation of the glorious carnage that will ensue when Df:UW opens.

Want to listen to someone discussing roleplaying and Darkfall?  Check out this podcast interview with Lord Zannul, the Hero of Mercia.  No kidding, this guy was one of the legitimate "good guy" heros on the NA-1 server.  Other players gave him the nickname, and he earnt it.  Df-centric from about 25 minutes in.

It's still basically the same game.

 

(which was pretty bad)

Actually it wasn't bad, just really horrible new player experience and some really bad design blunders over the life of Darkfall 1.0, which Aventurine has actually fronted up and discretely admitted really screwed up the game (instant ray spells in particular).

 

The simplest way to "pidgeonhole" the game would be a "pre-Trammel UO style" game. If you liked Everquest and hated UO, then you likely would prefer GW2 over Df.  Nothing wrong with that, just very different games.

If you want to see how truly epic and dynamic sieges in Darkfall can be watch this series of three videos.  I was there for these sieges, they started around 5 am pacific time (done on purpose by the attackers so there would be less defenders) and lasted for the next 4-5 hours.  We are talking constant movement coordination and massive battles on multiple fronts.  4 cities of ours all were attacked 4 cities all were defended.  Epic battles around the map involving 100's of players on each side.   NO OTHER GAME OUT THERE WILL GIVE YOU THIS TYPE OF DYNAMIC ENVIRONMENT IT IS F'ng AMAZING!

 

Part 1:

Part 2:

Part 3:

These events are just the happenings one morning in the world of Darkfall. 

 

PS.  Make sure to watch the beginning of part 2 if you don't understand the tactics used in part 1 as the current game mechanics have changed since this occurred.

i actually can't wait for this game to launch. i played DF for about 8 months but, since i was abot a year late  in starting, i was never competitive enough to be part in any sort of semi fun pvp.

pvp was always a huge disappointment, where i would be 2 shot by pretty much everyone.

i really hope DF UW will prevent that huge nube-vet gap from happening again.

No you dont need a great computer. Just one with good processing power on individual cores since it only uses 1. An expensive multi-core computer with low power in each one performs like crap. They may have fixed this in UW though, but havent seen them discuss it.

My PC ran me about $900 a year ago and can run the game on max settings without a single problem

In my opinion, this is one of the greatest DF videos ever made.
