Darkfall is a game that you either love or hate. It is completely up to your personal preference and your decision shouldn't be based on what other people think.

Beta is beta though. There are frequent wipes and bugs. Not much of a point to play when you know your character might get wiped the next day.

You should preorder only if you are sure that this game is for you and that you are gonna play it when it releases. ( You also get a discount with the preorder so thats another plus)

Darkfall offers a unique set of features that you cannot find in any other game out there.

  • Completely open world with no instances.
  • True action combat, with friendly fire, no tab target, no autoattack, no lock on spells...
  • FFA PvP. You dont like someone? Kill him, even if he is in the same clan as you. Unless ofc you are in a safe zone. :(
  • Full loot, everything you or other people carry is lootable.
  • Every single item you can wear is craftable.
  • You can change your role at will. Be a warrior at one moment then be a mage the next. You are not stuck with one class forever like in most mmorpgs.
  • You can progress your character how ever you like. You dont follow a predetermined path like in themepark games.
  • It is pretty straight forward. You have fixed roles/classes. Atm it is only 2 roles per class so nothing much to combine
  • Build your own city, your own house, your own boat.
  • I wouldn't call it "building". Everything is pre set and you cant really influence the looks of it. You basicly only farm materials and are allowed to add a pre-set structure to your city. If you dont like the layout or the structure your city offers your are fucked. Houses are also pre set and there are limited spots in the world. Adding stuff to your house depends how lucky your chaos chests drops are
  • Clan warfare, sieges, naval combat, territory control, huge epic battles, political meta-game.
  • naval combat is limited atm and only offers one ship with one canon. There is no real territory control. You can live out of player cities and naturally you will meet more members of a clan that lives in this area. But there are no benefits of controlling a certain area. Villages are a joke


These are basically the features Darkfall has to offer. Dont know about you, but i cannot think of any other game that offers all the above combined. If you think this type of game is for you, then go ahead and preorder.

The game is shit keep away from it.

Maybe if it were launched in 2006 it would be "decent".

While yes, this is a beta, the pace it is moving at is snail like. Game is in no state to be fun at this point and seems to need atleast 6 months more in beta even at a fast development pace. Your question is should you pre-order... the answer is: not if you expect to have much fun in the game. My advice is to wait until it is launched and see if they actually make anything of this mess. From my years of experience with Aventurine... my hunch is it will launch as a buggy, incomplete piece of crap. They have done nothing recently to convince me otherwise. Quite the contrary, I think they have sunk to an all time low as if they don't care how the game turns out at all.

P.S.. I loved original Darkfall and subbed until it shut down. This is not Darkfall and is not at all what they promised their long time customers.

You cant correct facts. :)

Yea obviously there are limits, its not minecraft, but the functionality is there. You do build and upgrade your house, you do build and upgrade your city and it can be destroyed or taken over.

Also, come on now, yea the roles and boats are not all in yet but they will be at some point and you know it. Might take a while since this is AV we are talking about, but yea...

If you need attention, or just someone to talk about your feeling with, pm me and I will help you. You cared enough to post in the thread about not caring, so you must be trying to meet some internal need.
Speaking of internal need...

Why do you need someone to convince you of anything? Make your own decisions. 



QFT... the OP basically says, spoon feed me, I can't think for myself.

The scary part is one day the world will be run by adults who were never spanked as kids and got trophies just for participating.

Agree 100% this game is a big piece of turd and you can't make a POS shine.  Anyways remember back when they said they were ready to launch?  Well what a big load of *&^# , they were never even close to it and we aren't dumb and all knew that they decided to extend their "beta" to give us a chance to put in our feedback.  Their goal according to them was to fix up the final parts and polish up the game.  Well again that was a load of you know what, the game was no where complete and was bugged beyond bugged and how can anyone believe the game was even close to launching.  This supposed "beta" has turned into them buying more time and in this case and based on how things are moving (super snails pace) along, the game will need a year at least to fix and when it does come out it will be bugged beyond belief.

In short don't preorder it and just wait and see.  Also the game is no where near the Sandbox they claim it to be.

He is banned from the Beta forums, etc...

It's easy to get banned on Darkfall forums since Darkfall moderators is corrupted and ban people they dislike.

Happened to me.

So telling us not to care cause he is banned failed bigtime.

 

Really dude? Come on now...

In the DF forums people curse and swear on AV 24/7 and they remain untouched.

I can find like 10 posts from that guy where he is crusing and swearing right in the open. 

If anything, the DF boards need more strict moderation.

My guess is i was banned cause the moderator didnt like my political view and he wrote reason for banning was a puncture. Reason was a puncture cause he didnt have any reason for banning. So i was banned cause a corrupt moderator had a powertrip.

That is not serious moderation. 

I asked them 5-6 times why i was banned and never got an answer back. This problem goes all the way to the top of moderators cause the ones responsible for the moderators working professionely do nothing.

 

Ok Mr. innocent, whats your nickname on the DF forums?

Can you point out where the website lies to you :) ?

Here  for starters

 

Enjoy the largest seamless, zone-less and non-instanced MMORPG world ever created. Explore five continents, countless small islands, trackless underwater depths, and a sprawling underworld. Hundreds of dungeons and adventure areas await. It takes many hours to simply travel from one end of the world to the other.

LOL - classic....  How about when they ninja edited their websit in the past few weeks removing all the abilities from the 50% of each class not ready for launch?  That way they can tout it as brand new game update in the future....

Yup ..

 

Its actually smaller than Darkfall and i dont just mean the water area.. the actual landmass is smaller.

There is only 1 continent and 4 big islands, then some little pointless islands.

Trackless underwater depths? well yeah you can go nuderwater but you will die when you run out of air.

Spawling underworld ? no idea what thats about..

Hundreds of dungeons? err no

I dont think it takes hours to travel from one side to the other.. but yeah it takes time..

As I said in the other thread young man, trolling for the sake of it, they re named a lot of stuff.

 

Ok I'm the main man from DF1 anyway, I was bummed about this game, wobble was crap, it didn't feel good, it just felt lame, a few epic changes, actually listening to the playerbase's feedback has changed my mind, everyone wants a game like this at there comes a time when you just have to get behind them, I'll be playing at launch anyway.

 

If it gives half the fun/adrenaline from DF1 then it;s worth a shot.

There's no lies in there Mr Hancakes, quiet a few people have already praised AV for the world design. Hundreds of dungeons is clearly hyperbole before you say that...

You go link me where on their site they now have the list of classes and their skills.  They took it off or maybe I am just the one who cannot find it.

Call it what you will, but it ISN'T THE TRUTH!  Period...

Your attempt to defend this is rather telling.
