The promotion will turn away more people than it will attract. If you guys don't understand why we are asking for this, talk with a veteran player about it. It will kill the game.
pussy vets crutched on presurging for years, and now that every one has access to it its bad! GSO!
Surging spells will not ruin the game, be practical. They will make it exactly how it is now, except now new players can fight back the same. The majority of vets already have surging spells and it hasnt ruined the game.
When you put Vets with spells already surging on a 4x skill increase, like they did over the weekend, PvP was unplayable. Surging occurred during regular fights 4x faster (actually, seemed even more than that). People were getting back to surge way too fast because of the increase, and it ruined pvp. If you put the skill gain back to that level permanently, you need to remove surges.
What vets will do to new players isn't even the problem. Vets versus vet combat just becomes stupid, and magic becomes even more overpowered.
Vets and newbies alike have been complaining about the surging mechanics since people started pre-surging like 2.5 years ago. It became a more central issue though the more people that get surging spells to presurge. Some people walk into a fight with multiple r90's, multiple r50's, magma, toxic, a few bolts, eye rot/pungent mist and several rays pre-surged in almost all cases. The more people that achieve that level the more pre-surgers we'll have spotlighting the issue.
And the issue has been front and centre when talking about the skillgains weekend because the gains were so fast that you would sometimes surge off a surge which was absolutely absurd. Every 2-3 spells was a surge regardless if you pre-surged or not. People just wore robes because what's the point of armour with THAT level of surging spells going off.

What they did last time when they increased the skill gain was damn stupid, every third time you casted your spell you got surging more or less, THIS they have to fix. Else people will cast surging 24/7

last free weekend was just ridiculous with everyone fully presurged. horrible.
Quote from Tasos:
-Expansion / Relaunch doesn't mean a server wipe but it may give fresh options to new and existing players
-I'll repeat that we're not going to wipe the servers in case that's still unclear
"(GM XXXXXX) : I am sorry if I am no help for you. Anything else I can assist you with?

Playing Darkfall is the most fun I've ever had on a computer with my pants zipped up and both hands on the desk.
Here is how surging will be good
Majority of you cry people sit in theyre cities all day and zerg anyone who goes in, yes? Yes, for them to not be insanely bored and go afk, they are likely to duel, ruining theyre pre surges allowing you all to pre surge and fuck up entire zergs sitting in theyre city.
