DarkFall: Unholy Wars was never, ever close to release... despite what Tasos told us in the video interview posted here on MMORPG.COM at the end of November, 2012.  (And was predicted by some). 

Over a month and half since DarkFall was supposed to release.  We have Tasos' own words telling us it is release ready months before... and now silence.  I guess now we know what it sounds like.  

 

I think this clip from Fargo is more appropriate: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5gwc4UizUc

Still nothing from Tasos for the general public on their official web-site and the NDA is firmly in place.  Nothing inspires confidence in a MMO like an NDA!

I played Unholy Wars from the beginning of beta til about 4 days ago, and have no plans on playing again.  I know a lot of folks who feel this way, and it makes me sad.

Yeah I agree, I just dont like UW.

The NDA is what is saving this game atm, silence is the best thing for UW atm.

Of course, that could be cool for me since I live in Asia with the ping and all, but at the same time, f2p pvp is kind of sketchy. Also, who knows when and if that will ever happen considering what's going on with DFUW. The only way I see it done is if the Korean partner already has the game (DF1) as part of the deal for the financial backing of DFUW, and they are refitting it for f2p. I just hope it's not p2w... 

They won't launch old (DF 1) as F2P - it will be the new one (DF:UW).

No matter how old players praise DF 1 - it wouldn't have any appeal to F2P audience - it doesn't look great and is needlessly complicated.

 

nope.  it will be the old DF1.  PWN_FACE heard right.

i don't expect to like Darkfall, altho i may like it MORE than other MMOs. i know it is gonna have a very frustrating level of grind to it, even if its significantly less than most. waiting for a pure FAST action virtual world. dice rolling & character levels (even "skills") IN COMBAT should have never carried over from pencil & paper to a computer that can reasonably model 3D spaces and objects

Well you almost had a good point.

Sadly though, this is just not true.

There is another full loot massive pvp conquest with FIrst Person view, among a massive amount of far more innovative and impressive features, MMORPG being created.

It is called Embers of Caerus.

There are other, better, options coming.  There's no real need to get suckered and support incompetent devs

Look through the features in the link, and you'll see a staggering difference in what is being attempted by both companies.

Aventurine had their chance to do it right, and had to shut down Darkfall.  Why give them another chance on a worse version, when other devs are creating better games?

Because like I said.... they're the only game in town. when does Embers come out......? Like 2015 or something?

There seems to be a big influx of sandbox hardcore mmo's coming out and that's GREAT. But they're not out yet and they can't be judged. You can't say that better options are coming until they're here because a big part of the darkfall hate is the hype/promises that they didn't live up to. I'm not sure why you think embers is immune to this.

Remind me again when Darkfall 2010 was released?

Or is there even a release date for it at all at this point?

What? You know the beta is out? And I've played it? Not to mention darkfall 1... You're not making any sense. We're talking about AV and the games they make. 

How exactly can you say Embers if better if it's not even CLOSE to being out? There's like what 1 dungeon test concept video?

I'm going off the proposed features - since neither game is released, or has an exact release date.

You know the beta came after two seperate months of AV saying the game was release ready and a blatant lie about Steam?

I'm simply noting that it is possible for Embers to come out before Darkfall UW sees a release.  Even if UW comes out first, the chances of it having anywhere close to the features of Embers, or even having a positive, fun, bug free experience is extremely slim - and I'm basing that simply on Aventurines past games :)

 

lol

i thought you had a small shred of intelligence until i saw you're last few posts on this thread.  rofl

Although I agree with most of you and while Tasos should be receiving flak due to a buggy unfinished game the fact still remains that it is the only FPS full loot sandbox available to play by pre-ordering. Games such as The Repopulation and Archeage have barely been announced and will probably release around q3 q4 2012, which still gives people a huge downtime in between while craving a sandbox. 

 

If you drop the "pre" from pre ordering, Mortal Online makes Darkfall no longer the "only" one.

A FPS doesn't have over the shoulder POV.

 

The funny part to me, is how DarkfallFanatic doesn't even know what year it is.  Might be a side effect of waiting for Darkfall 2010 so long ;)

Picking on a guy for a typo? I really wouldn't expect anything else from you at this point. You're nothing more than a typical, angry, snide, entitled forum dweller. How sad it must be to spend so much of your time talking about a game/company you hate.

I'm sorry you feel so strongly about this video game that you had to attack me personally.

I'd prefer to just discuss gaming though in the future.

 

lol   how deliciously and absurdly ironic!  on several levels.

here you are devoting a large amount of time to saying shit about Darkfall, as if it was a PERSON that you hold a great grudge against.  

perhaps a PERSON that touched you in a bad place.

 

and your faith in Embers of Caerus while talking about what a deep wound Darkfall left in your psyche, is astonishing, hilarious and semi-disturbing.

the game isn't out and could end up being even more of a disappointment than darkfall.

I read that bit, and thought "the same could apply to Darkfall Unholy Wars"

But yes, because you said there was nothing being created with those features, followed by me showing an example of an mmorpg being created wtih those features, I feel that showed your statement was incorrect.

I mean if you want to write a new statement and focus it more so it eliminates any possibility for any other game to be included, I'll let ya go ahead and do that.  But with what you said earlier, it was a perfect counter example.  Just how it works.  Feel free to say a different version that specifies an exact phase of the development cycle that darkfall just happens to meet, that should make it seem like there are no alternatives a bit more hehe

No there's no weaseling around here, it's obvious what I've been saying from the beginning. I look at games practically. All things considered, would you rather play a hardcore full loot large scale conquest pvp game with problems or none at all? It's downright silly to think I would be talking about any game being created because the point is that darkfall had high expectations and ended up being disappointing. Why would I compare a game that's mostly out (we at least have a good idea of how it works) to a game that is purely conceptual? It's apples and oranges. I'm dumbfounded that I even have to explain this to you, it's very obvious you're just trying to save some dignity after all of the dumb stuff you've said.

Go back and reread this conversation. The fact is you tried to argue the point for a while until it was clear you had no leg to stand on, so you start arguing semantics. 

 

yep.  altho anybody with half a brain who reads what he/she has to say in this thread will be ignoring his/her posts in the future.  

so maybe it all turned out for the best.  8)

 

its hilarious how he/she argued with me about the danger of introducing bugs, as being something to be afraid of when considering whether or not to add a bubble chat feature to Darkfall.  

and here he/she is going on about Embers Of Caerus, like its a sure thing.

and EoC is one of the most ridiculously overambitious MMOs ever.    lol

i didn't spend much time reading about all the supposed promises that Darkfall made, but from everything that i recall, EoC is FAR more unrealistic in their publicly stated goals.

 

and yet Darkfall is vapourware, while EoC is on lockdown.  hahahahhahaha
