I'm an Eve Online veteran (started in 2003) and I recently got banned for some nasty stuff. I can't find another MMO which offers the same sort of depth and player-driven experience. I like the sound of Darkfall (it is one sexy feature list), however I have two main questions before I buy:
1) I am in the EU - if I buy an account on the EU server, what will the population be like?
2) How complex is the current political system between player-run clans?
