Sorry not gonna happen. They already confirmed Friday its launching next week. Last time they delayed it was 6 days before launch. Most it will get delayed is maybe a few days IMHO and that would only be cause the servers crashed due to too many people trying to play.

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

Where did they say it would be launching next week? I thought they in fact DIDN'T make an announcement.

All that effort just to end up as a failure.

 

So I'm guessing someone in Darkfall ganked you two years ago and you are still mad?

Hi,
One point to make before the developer diary: I know that I said in the MMORPG.com Q&A that pre-orders were to launch this week, and we really tried until a little while ago before having to accept defeat, a combination of things (most we could not control since there are 3 companies working on this) made it impossible. Obviously our main focus is on the actual game, but this was important as well, so it’s frustrating for us, as I’m sure it is for you. So will we still do a pre-order before launch at this late date? Perhaps if this can be done on Monday so we can break up the buying traffic before the launch day and make sure everything is working right, and give you the ability to reserve your character name beforehand. There will be people working on this over the weekend here, at the provider and at our billing processor’s, so we hope we’ll be able to have the option on Monday.

Above is from the Darkfall Blog. Bolded area is what makes me certain they are still aiming for 12/12. They did not mention a push back also.

As messed up as it seems to most of us especialy people in North Americ, the game will launch on 12/12/12.

It blows my mind that this close to release there is no pre-order, or better yet there is no big PR push like we are used to for all recent releases in this social driven media age.  Where are the tweets hyping the community or the facebook crys for like this pls?  I dont know but AV is from Greece and this is just how they roll.

The first darkfall launch was a nightmare people couldnt even buy the game they had major problems with simple selling / starting subs so people could play. 

This is a very big game brought to us by a very small company and I really hope they manage to make it go smooth despite the lack of PR / hype I am personaly very hyped and ready to play some darkfall.

Expect a pre-order this monday if possible to help with the sales traffic of release but honestly this could be like some old skoo 2000 game where we actualy have to buy it the day the game comes out not pre-order with incentives / pre download a month in advance and patch fully ready to hit the button at 12.  Hey its greece lets get old skoo with it the games gonna be a blast

I can't wait to see what other troll dumb shit you have to say when we are all preloading it monday.

Thanks for your repetitive non sensical comments that you keep posting because apparently you have nothing to do all day but talk about how darkfall is awesome and probably gonna be the best game ever and how you're mad about it.

Sorry kid but find something better to do with your time I guess maybe you dont have a real PC to play games on or something so you troll around forums all day hahahaha!

Wow dude rage much? You find something to do with your time instead of troling people who are giving their opinion. He didn't say anything that warranted anything you said to him.

Plenty of games offer pre orders days, weeks, months, and sometimes years before they come out.

The underlined portion doesn't mention when launch day is, just that they think "PERHAPS IF" it can be done Monday, it'll help WHENEVER the game actually does release.

 

It's kinda sickening to see them treat their customers this way.  Very unprofessional by them.

If my comments are non sensical, and, as you say, are about how 'awesome' darkfall is, then I suppose you could be right.

Darkfall being awesome doesn't make sense.  I'm glad we both agree.

 

Not sure even why my PC was brought up though?  It usually doesn't affect my enjoyment of games.  The quality of the game itself does that.  A tidbit about my PC though - I play games at around six times the resolution of a 1080p screen.

Common sense says if they haven't mentioned a delay then the previously mentioned date is still the target.

People are determined to hate this company on these boards its actually quite amusing. The simple fact that we have this game to play is a mircale knowing what Aventurine has gone through and how small and underfunded the company was in the beginning.

The latest release date I can find on their website is in last month.  Did we all miss the launch somehow?

If you actually paid attention to the forums and Darkfall blog where all the current information is, you would know that on the 14th of last month the game was delayed. Please stop trolling with incomplete information.

 

Edit: FYI their actuall website is old and outdated. They know this as well as the players who actually follow the game. It is getting addressed but they have a small team and they are focused on launching the game. This isnt some triple A company with millions in funding and hundreds of people working on it.

That is where I got that date, the blog.  Is there on their website an official release date after that one?

Edit: there is, the 12/12/12 one.  I found it.  Go me.

You have to realise how small of a company aventurine is, they might not have the ressources/manpower to get all these things ready before release. It's hard for such a small company to be able to handle this huge amount of hype/interest that this game has built up. I'm sure they're trying they're best to get the preorders out in time and they even stated that they have people working over the weekend to try and get it ready.

No worries about them being a small company.  If they are unsure if they can hit the date, they can do several things -

1.  Mention nothing until really close to the date, and then delay

2.  Mention they are struggling, but still trying to hit the date.  Communicate.

3.  Mention as soon as they have doubts a slight delay so they can be sure they can hit it.  Possibly release a bit earlier or allow preloading if they get done sooner.

 

Seems they are going with option 1.  No communication.

Honestly, it doesnt matter how small a company is. It is quite clear after several years of experience with AV: they do not know how to properly communicate with their community. Im not here to tell them how to do their job, it's up to them, all I'm saying is that they could have done more of it, which would've resulted in a lot more happy faces. For instance, things always seem to be unclear, there's always obvious questions unanswered.

Or..

4. Work on getting the game out. Not worry about communication because they already have communicated the game is launching on 12/12/12. 

Seriously do you want hourly updates on what they are doing? Live streaming of them working on the game? I'll admit that would be cool and I always welcome information from them about whats going on, but realistically I would rather them bust their asses over the weekend and into next week to launch the game that I really want to play instead of baby sitting whiners on the forums.

It does not take much time at all to write a sentence or two.  I've done it several times in this thread.  AV could easily say "We are on track for the 12/12/12 release date!  Info on subscriptions and time of day for release coming tomorrow!"

It doesn't take much at all.  If they seriously have to spend every second to work on the game from now til release with NO time for two sentences, then they should delay.
