OMGGGGGGGGG

 

I dont believe how dumg some of you can be. 

Tasos isnt a dumb guy - he knows exactly what hes doing!

The whole DFUW relase debate was done on purpose! the game was NEVER READY for a release, they just needed money to keep going, thats why the annoucment. Youve all been fooled twice!

They needed your crowd funding to pay the bills!

DFUW will probably release in 2y. by then one month laterDF3 will be annouced. And you will be fooled trice!

Let me say this again: you have been tasosd.

They would of had to put something in the field temporarily for payment to go through and that was there goal date of release how ever do to bugs in beta they couldnt meet that goal so it will be changed before the next payment date. Again they never gave an official release date so they did nothing wrong just get over it.

When you wait until a week before release to say that there are few things to iron out and that you will allow people to prepurchase / sub and test those things before launch then yeah.  Waiting until a week before launch suggests that they were actually close when it seems obvious now they were nowhere near that.  It is either dishonest or they have learned nothing about game development over the last how many years.

I was a fan of DF and played it off and on.  I would rather play DF1 right now.

You say they never gave an official release date and to get over it.  People have been mislead even if it was not through an outright statement.  Everyone else, even fans of the game like myself can see that.  If someone punches you in face but you didn't see it and there are no witnesses and you can't prove it - doesn't mean it didn't happen.  It still sucks.

Well AV will do lots of damage to the games chances of success, its what they do well.  The killing blow will come from the old verteran DF 1.0 community who will tear the game apart (and are doing so now) because they didnt get the quake arena game they had hoped for.  They will kill it with both negative word of mouth and by rampant botting and hacking (like they did to ruin 1.0, using the excuse that its not a quake arena game so its ok to cheat)

 

Anyway.  Game does exist.  Its a far better game sill than MO, Xyson, whatever earthrise is going to turn out to be, and better than all its other competition in the full loot ffa pvp sandbox game.  It still has this going for it.

 

The question is...how badly is AV going to damage the games chances further.  Theyve done a fantastic job killing the hype that had build up to its decembre no launch.  How badly will the veteran 1.0 community destroy whats left come launch by botting and hacking?  I forsee AV doing quite a number based on delays and lack of communication to really dampen the launch numbers, then forsee the old verteran community botting and hacking like no other, guranteeing no new players trickle into the game.  This is really the story of the origional Darkfall but now happening again, nearly identically to what drove that game from having a large shot of success to no success..

Mind you very few new players joined 1.0 though out its life, most of the pop fluctuations were returning players and veterans leaving.  2.0 needs to get a new playerbase, one that wont kill the game because its not the game they want, as well as get a constant trickle of new blood through out its life.  That was the big killer of DF, lack of new player traffic and lack of new players sticking around.

I'm not a massive fan but fake game?  Did you just post that to get your forum post count up?  Darkfall was not a fake game and they decided for the good of the game to beta test it, good for them I guess.

Well it sure seem to be "fake" considering it seemingly was not the slightest ready for launch when launch day was some months ago. Im sure there is a game but definetly not a finished one. We were told there was just some minor issues which would be solved within a week and now it is february.

My guess is they needed all these preorders to continue develop.

Why tell us the game is close to go gold when it was not?

Why not tell us the real status of the game?

And where is the info Tasos?

Why so silent?

I can't imagine they did this to keep the development funded.  They would not have shut down DF1 if that was the case. . people were still playing that.

Not enough were playing to pay the bills though.  At the end the servers were pretty dead.  They kept the players stalled on the wipe or no wipe as long as they could, otherwise it would have even been worse.

DF:UW releases today, completely broken, cue the outrage.

DF:UW releases when it's ready but delayed, cue the outrage.

The only real issue is the lack of information, but it's in closed beta with an NDA in effect and AV are known for complete lack of info so i wonder why people are so surprised?

Expresso gave me a Hearthstone beta key.....I'm so happy :)

 ...

You say the part high-lighted above as if DarkFall was a released game.  It's not.  It is brutally harsh BETA.  

 

Does Mortal Online or Xyson wipe your character at any time without warning?

Are you forced to continually repeat newb content because your character is starting out at ground zero... AGAIN?

 

No matter how far you progress in DF:UW your character will be wiped at least one more time.  Until they release... you have the "heart-warming" knowledge of knowing you get to go through this progress again.  

 

No matter how great your items...

No matter how sweet your "spot"...

No matter what you have achieved...

It will be wiped out.  That is how BETA works.

 

Nope, I strongly agree with you.  No matter the state of Mortal Online or Xyson, at least they are released games where a player doesn't have to worry about your character being wiped out and you have to start all over again.

So it's no big deal that Tasos said it was ready for release months ago?

It's no big deal that on the day of the supposed release he instead announces BETA?  

For months Tasos and ardent supporters have been telling us that BETA isn't needed because they took care of that internally.

None of that is an issue?  Really?  It's just all lack of information?

 

I disagree.  I think all of that is a huge issue.  Tasos has shown again and again that whatever bile spews out of his mouth has no basis in truth.  

Sure he has issues with poor and/or lack of information as well; but let's start with the stuff that does come out is at least truthful.

Loving the chumps defending aventurine. Love that Tasos straight out lies about the game being ready for launch and people lining up to defend them. DFUW is a year away from release easy and nobody in the actual beta can argue against that statement.
