On a different note: I heard the Patherfinder Online fans are down voting Unholy Wars, and upvoting their game. So I guess they see it as competition or something.

1. Forums are up again: http://forums.darkfallonline.com

2. According to Valve - down voting doesn't currently do anything. They are only counting positive votes.

Whats does Valve have to do with the MMORPG.com hype meter?

It takes about 15 mins to collect enough gold by yourself - so I assume that 5+ players were working together to get their guild name before someone else will take it.

If duping would still be possible, all they would need is just one potato ...

as the game is still using a lot of the original code, it could be that their utilising pre-existing exploit methods. Same with other types of hacks, which it is well known that DFO suffered from.

I thought about down voting Steam greenlight. 

Hype meter showing that any indie MMO is more popular than mainstream heavyweights is either broken, or irrevelant.

Not always true. Some indie games are very well done. And every major company started as indie at one time or another. Bioware for example only had 2 people when it first started. Blizzard had just 3 to start their company. Your main stream companies often loose sight and their goals become about money making not producing quality games. 

Problem is DF1 was not very good to mainstream players, minus your dedicated fans it had a low pop. Them trying to rush DF2 out and basicaly the same has even more negativity. Perhaps a money grab or a serious attempt to make a great game gone bad. Hard to tell.

But it still has dedicated fans. I personaly do not play DF so my words are not bashing it, just by what others have wrote on these forums.

First, the game is not fun without the players. Second, you can't invest in improving the game, if you don't have income.

300k people bought DF, and 95% of them left during 3 years following the launch. Some fundamental problems couldn't be fixed by just tweaking few things here and there and adding new content. 

Current negativity has more to do with early technical problems, currently unfinished features and declaration that game was ready for launch month ago, than with gameplay changes. 

They've really dropped the ball on one thing - previous UI was mostly dreadful, but had one or two nice things about it. They've decided to design UI from scratch - and actually broke the things that were good about old UI.

The doctors say his chances are 50/50...but there's only a 10% chance of that.

Ah yeah I missed the part in NC360's quoted post where he mentioned the mmorpg.com hype meter too.  I guess that is why people could think he meant any other place where up and down voting can occur.  Such as the one Azdul mentioned.

I'm sorry everything has to be spelled out for you. Anyway, at the time of the post PFO was ranked #1 here on MMORPG.com

Well, it wasn't just me who realized more places allow such up and down voting and a lack of specifying can cause confusion.

Far better to be very vague and have people make wrong assumptions than actually tell people what you are talking about.  If that sounds stupid, it's because it is.

Anyway the forums are back up, not sure for how long theyve been up, probably all day.  However the forum is new, new avatars ect, everything relects the new darkfall rather than the old darkfall.

[mod edit]

I agree. Was announced but still its a bit stupid to take the beta forums including patch notes offline after such an important patch.

Anyway I am glad they fixed the bugs, game is running like a charm. Yesterday 6+ hours without one crash and never lost items :D

bare in mind that unholy wars was planned on release 12 november 2012.. 2 month''s later.. people are happy with the game and that they fixed the basics buggs..

 

Thats funny dude..

 

Ill tell you this: 

They haven''t learned anything this company..

when they release ill bet you that max. 20% of the content is in.. and 80% of that content is broken..

 

And they wonder why people are leaving @ start..

How can you say they haven't learned anything?  Instead of releasing broken they have a beta instead....Just because your estimate to complete is off, doesnt mean they havent learned anything.

The new site is garbage, guess we are on round two in fixing it. Entire thing has been down since yesterday, going for 48 hours this time?

There is not a single hack and since recently not a single dupe in Beta. Get your facts straight.


 

You keep thinking that.. Answer me this. How did within 10 mins of the server being up a village was captured? Within 5 mins of the server coming up there was 4 guilds already created.

People openly admitting to duping in global chat and people buying potatoes for 50g each in bulk.

As far as the hacking goes. Everyone that plays DFUW knows there are working hacks in the game. Hacks that let you teleport around and speed hacking something that is commonly used by several people in the game.

So you go ahead and keep telling yourself there are no dupes and hacks in the game. lol

[mod edit]

I fought a speed hacker yesterday. He was fucking terrible and I got him half dead with a 200 point character. He then took my 50 gold worth of crap loots.
