    Default New Player from AC (DT)

    Dear all, I'm a 10 year vet of AC looking for a new home. Somehow Darkfall passed my radar until recently checking out where all the blood and other players went. I'm downloading the game as I speak.

    I have a few questions if I could get some answers that would be much appreciated.

    Is Darkfall going to provide the challenge Darktide did back in the day?

    Can you use Death items to protect your equipment? If not how easily can items be replaced?

    Is the pvp as good as AC or even better?

    What's the server politics like?

    How long has it been since game release?

    Player population dwindling or growing or pretty static?

    Can you build up a wealth in the game - through hunting/crafting or pvp

    All experiences shared appreciated!

    Thanks

    - yes and more

    Can you use Death items to protect your equipment? If not how easily can items be replaced?

    - there are no such items to protect your gear, gear is very easy to be replaced, for example killing 20trolls within 10 min will yeld enough bone to make full bone armor set

    Is the pvp as good as AC or even better?

    -pvp is better

    What's the server politics like?

    -its turtle soup

    How long has it been since game release?

    -1 year

    Player population dwindling or growing or pretty static?

    -slowly growing, too many MMOrpgs out there

    Can you build up a wealth in the game - through hunting/crafting or pvp

    -yes, you can be very rich if you get lucky

    Nice to see more MMO veteran gamers around here

    Darkfall is very special and rare/unique MMORPG, isn´t perfect but if AV can continue with the post-launch development during some more months, this game will have a good growing future.

    Welcome to Agon and have fun!

    Best regards o/

    I'm too lazy to answer your question, but as a ACT vet(99-07 i think) I can tell you that this game is by far the best mmo released since AC. Darktide will always hold a special place in my e-heart, so im not sure if i can say which pvp i enjoy more, but the pvp in Darkfall is definately very intense and fun as hell. I wasn't in blood in AC, but I am with em here and having tons of fun.

    played ac:dt on and off 99-09 ac was amazing pvp but i think darkfall may be a little more fun based on full loot and fps style action

    lol you clearly didn't play AC, AC's pvp is far better than DFO.

    My impression is that since release this game haven't been growing in population, probably more like decreasing.

    Back last summer there was a lots of reds that would camp the newbie areas, now you only see them occasionally.

    It could be because AV set up another server so the population got split, but there's seems to have been alot of people quitting too.

    I quit for awhile myself, then came back since there isn't too many good mmorpg's to chose from.

    It's a decent game, not perfect, but what game is.

    There are certainly more facets to PvP than we had in AC-DT. Especially in regards to city building and sieges.

    The player vs player PvP is just as good but a bit different. Team wise DFO i better. However, AC was a bit more strategic in the early days in how you attacked. DFO has much of the same but it might actually be faster paced.

    One thing to note is that the player perspective is different This has turned many an old skool AC-DT player off of this game.

    No matter how you slice it DFO is quite good. if you loved AC then you may love this game. This is the only game since AC to give me that rush that AC-DT did.

    dunno

    nope

    havent played AC but I fucking love how it feels to control your character once you get the hang of it.

    What's the server politics like?

    never got involved and have been playing a year. I consider everyone a friendly enemy.

    How long has it been since game release?

    a year and lemme tell you something . .. this game has come a long way! you should join right now and experience it while it lasts

    Player population dwindling or growing or pretty static?

    it fluctuates. people have a tendency to leave and then miss it and come back. new people are always joining.

    Can you build up a wealth in the game - through hunting/crafting or pvp

    if you work hard for it. many ways to make money

    You need to approach this game as if you will be playing for a long time to get the most out of it. I think the 1$ trial is a joke . .. you should definitely get at least the 3 month package deal to have the most fun with this game. You will barely be getting used to your controls when the trial ends . .. 1 week is not enough time to experience anything really besides beautiful scenery while you are trying to figure out your controls. I have been playing this game for a year and I am pretty damn sure that i will sub until its dead . .. it is a really fucking awesome game but I only get to play it occasionally.


    omg its D day already!?

    DF is a strange experience, you could love it or hate it.
    Just get a trial and see for yourself.

    Ah DT... how I miss that.

    And where have you been? Darkfall was big news leading up to release.
