 All I can say is Tasos talked alot about darkfall 1.0 as well and most of what he said turned out to hype or flat out untrue.

 Those who don't learn from the past are doomed to repeat it.

Lahuzer writes: I liked most of it. But didn´t get the part about him defending the portals to dungeons not being instances. If they are underground, and you have to take a portal there, isn´t that the very definition of a instance? You can´t get there any other way then through portals. Maybe I missunderstood it, but to me it sure sounds like a instance. Fri Nov 30 2012 11:33AM Report
ProfRed writes:

An instance is a loaded seperate instance of some place in the game world, created for a specific player or specific set of players.  These are open dungeons to everyone in the world, there is just a portal to access them.

1000 people could go into the same dungeon (and crash the server) without creating a seperate instance of the dungeon aside from the one residing in the real world.

In most MMO's this dungeon would be instanced just for each player or group that accessed it creating numerous instances of the same location where players actions only affect those in their instance.

/\ Thats the long answer.

The practical answer of instances is: In Darkfall, if 200.000 guys go to the same dungeon, an the you enter, you will see 200.000 players.

With instances, if 200.000 players go to an instance, and then you enter, you will only see the max players allowed in that instance, or only your group, or only you.

The reason of making "teleports" to dungeons is matter of visual work. Instead of making your player climbing down stairs, they put a loading screen.

Lahuzer writes: Gotcha. Still would have prefered if there were no loading screen etc. The immersion is way better when you "run down the stairs" to get there. But I get what you mean. Thx. Fri Nov 30 2012 12:28PM Report
GKnyght writes: lol "passionate" is an overly polite way of describing the Darkfall community... (Obsessed raving fanatics maybe?) Loved the interview though. I thought they did a good job of asking and answering the more important questions. Well done Garret and mmorpg.com. I can't wait to get my hands on Unholy Wars. Fri Nov 30 2012 1:06PM Report

Darkfall dungeons are the same as in Asheron's call 2 or lineage 2, you have to portal inside but there still open to all.

Instance are private dungeons eather for raid group, small group or solo player.

Best way to implement dungeons this way, instance to me are no fun there way to private and protected and boring.

So every account can have a character both on EU and NA.

That's a pleasant surprise :)

another aspect of Darkfall dungeons thats unique (whether you think its better or not is another matter) is that, you can't leave them by retreating back to where you came in.

 

the entrance portal takes you to point A in the dungeon.  the exit of the dungeon is at point B, and (unless you bindstone recall) so in order to get out, you have to run thru much of the dungeon before finding the exit portal (usually at "the end").  i believe this was to prevent people from camping the entrances.  i've never seen anybody camp them, so i guess it worked.  8)  and i did enter quite a few dungeons where i ran into people or vice versa.

Ragnarok_del writes: A instance is a closed place out on "another" server where nobody else can enter. For that idea of an instance, Darkfall doesnt have one. You could have 50 groups of 10 enter the same dungeon and kill each other all day long if you wanted. Fri Nov 30 2012 11:48PM Report

That was fucking awesome, shame I couldn't watch live but I had some class work to do followed by a massive bender so I watched now.

I'm very happy with the answers to.. all of those questions infact. Less than 2 weeks 'till UW now and I'm buzzin' for it! :D

The teleportation idea is really bad.I prefer a more realistic travel system.To keep combat feeling realistic,you NEED the feel of long travel and perhaps meeting enemies along the way.Warping around to HOTSPOTS imo cheapens the realism of combat/pvp.

Most of all his responses are good,i agree with his thought process behind this games choices.

I love his response to the NO end -game,i can't stand that geeky/nerdy modern term that really ruins gaming on a whole.

very hard to follow what he actually said about it but apparently crafting is going to be complete crap?

not sure since he talked pretty much in a circle without saying much at all - other than he isn't a crafter and doesn't like crafting (that bodes well)

Melgaroth writes: 1000 players going into a dungeon wouldn't crash the server anymore than 1000 players being at the same siege. The dungeons are simply built below the world and connected to the top with portals, like elevators going into a deep deep basement. Sat Dec 01 2012 7:58PM Report
