Title says it all. I looked. I really looked. Still, baffled why there aint a demo. Hoe am I supposed to commit without a demo?

MMO's mostly work with trials, not demo's. If you want to check how smooth Darkfall runs on your PC the only solution is logging into the game (be it with a new purchased account or with a friend's account). It would be wise to check the minimum pc requirements (if they released those at all) to see if your rig meets the reqs.

I don't have a badass PC myself, but I can do everything everywhere. I have around 2,5 GHz, Win7 OS, 2GB RAM and 9800GT GeForce GFX card. I only get problems during medium-large sieges (which involve more than 80 people). Keep in mind that there are two servers around, and you want to pick the server closest to your location.

Trials dont work in a ffa open pvp full loot game. Too many ways to exploit.

(one would need an extra island or something with no access to the mainland)

Duh..
There are already trials in the game man.
Get a clue.
They're just local for Greece and probably soon to be expanded to other countries.
What is to exploit in Darkfall with a trial account? Are you serious? It's a PvP game, you just kill the damn alt, problem solved.

When you want to have spy alts or alignment alts etc. today, you have to at least pay for it.
With free trials everyone could make quick alts for alignment farming or alts just to grief the shit out of people without any risk.

So hard to understand?

*edit
And dont forget the whole haxx issue, that would come with it.

Make a free trial account any time you want
use haxx to cheat yourself gold and gear very quick
dont care about possible punishments, cause its just a free trial, what do you care

You can do the same with a payed client. In fact probably some are already doing it.
Its an MMO, things like that happen sooner or later.
Better to fix alignment system and the haxx issue THAN having empty servers.
If someone is arguing it is probably because he might be paying for doing all the haxxes you mentioned and don't want to feel scammed because some others might be able to do it for free in the future.

His point was that right now, if you hack on your account, and get caught(you will get caught, just takes time) you lose your account and you are out the 50+ dollars you paid so far.
Implement free trials anybody can sign up for, and suddenly you get a ton of people hacking/exploiting on those trial accounts and shoveling the profits to legit accounts. they get caught/banned, no biggie cuz they never paid for that acccount in the first place. Ya, AV could turn around and ban the accounts that reaped the benefits of the trial account hacking, but that brings up a whole list of possible problems, for example: What if a hacker just decides to randomly donate some exploited gold to a newb he just runs into, with the sole intention of throwing AV off his tracks? Sounds dumb,but it does happen.

Not only that, but Aventurine actually ban more than just individual accounts. Other (hack-free) accounts a banned player owns end up banned as well.
