    The number 1 issue that has stained this game for the longest time imo,

    The developers, mods and true basement dwellers are scared of negative feedback. They cant stand criticism and want to pretend that they're selling candy bars when in reality its dirt wrapped in tin foil. Look, il explain a few things for you and keep it simple.

    1. You're not a new game. Everyone in the industry all ready knows about the lack of development this game has. I mean, the owners literally gave up on this game and sold it to you based on the fact they couldn't be bothered developing.

    2. No one has ever done anything well without critics. The fact that you hire $2 p/h mods to hide anything going against the grain that god forbid your 40 man player base reads, like really?

    3. Most people who shit on this game with points are not directly shitting on this game. Theyre making arguments in hopes 1 day you get your shit together and fix proper issues. The fact that year after year goes by and nothing besides pvp tweaks gets fixed that LITERALLY ANYONE with basic code knowledge can do, like... what are you trying to achieve here?

    If you want to fix this game, fix it. If you want to update the visuals, or questing, or whatever and honestly have no idea how to, or ideas or wtf you should be doing.. be open about it, there are more than enough people that could help. But when you shut off, do fuck all and delete anything that people writes calling you out on it.. that literally does nothing and your dying game will 100% remain a dying game, no $2 mod can fix that.

    Nothing wrong with the game, besides maybe 50 active users, no content, the only way to hit high stats is from potions grinding it out. empty NPC cities, owning player cities is beyond useless. The economy is trashed, items have 0 value and crafting is now pointless. There is no grind because everything is easy and offline mode. No new players are coming in because there is no marketing, and the few that do or make reviews "hence the video in a thread below" laugh at how bad this game is. The graphics are from 2005, there is no questing, AI interation is terrible.. BUT JUST BECAUSE 2 PEOPLE OUT OF A 50 PLAYERBASE LIKES IT, GAMES ROCK SOLID. idiots.

    Shit really is not that complicated, Bound listed out a great blueprint for territory control how many years ago? not one thing he listed was implemented... but hey at least more combat changes?

    I half agree. Forum nazi mods are definitely a negative thing. Remember how popping df1 forum was vs uw which was full nazi mod vs this forum where is let’s call politically correct.

    df1 forums was by far the best. Freedom of speech.

    The biggest problem with the game is that everything is bad apart from the pvp.

    It has basically been that way the entire time, the only real differences between now and df 1 is the combat is worse, its less grindy and holdings are worth fuck all now.

    OP you're a total trash bag shitlord. Games don't last decades and not have a very worthy experience. Games dont last a decade and have players who have played the game for 10+ years.

    You have no purpose here. See your sorry ass out. Where here to talk about what we like about the game.

    I agree with OP, the combat is top notch but everything else is snoozeville.

    Ultima Online realsed in 1996, still going on countless free to play servers and paid servers.
    WoW
    League of legends
    Dota
    Runescape
    Starcraft
    Counterstrike

    and many many many more that are 10,15,20 years old constantly updating every aspect of their games and keeping long term players logging in each week and paying monthly subs.

    Besides the shitty mods, its people like you "if you don't like it then leave" who has such a bland mentality that thinks everything is perfectly fine. For all you know, This game could be 30 days away from being completely shut down forever and then what? are you going to bitch and complain "BRING BACK DARKFALL".

    Countless experienced players have made threads with solid points over the years and literally nothing has come from it. Countless "sheep" of pve/questing players have made threads about hunting being almost worthless, the world bland and no sand in the box. Countless new players have made threads about how the game isnt exciting, aimless and figuring out what youre suppose to do can sometimes waste 2 hours before they log off. Not to mention running into 0 players in that time, realising the key bind systems are the most stupidest shit they have ever seen and the fact you need to run keybind scripts to pvp at a decent level is absurd.

    Then the game reviewers stumble on this game and basically make 20 minute "LOL THIS GAME IS SHIT" vids.

    But again, just because you and 5-10 people like how the game is right now, how pathetically slow the development is, how almost nothing has changed about this version and the original over the span of 10 years, that is the dumbest shit you could reply with.

    But im sure Andrew and the dev team wont reply with insight, im sure mods wont even reply, this post will more or less be deleted within 24 hours or thread locked and your player base will continue to dwindle until the doors are finally closed. Now, unless Andrew has either somehow made more money back on his investment, or is rich enough to not give a shit.. i dont understand from a management point of view how this is a thing. How can you invest in this, believe this is going to work and make a return on your investment and be so clueless as to what is wrong with the game and hire people to delete anything going against your "vision" that clearly isnt working.

    And 1 last thing. Over a whole weekend, off the top of my head, 4 threads were made, about 30 replies and 4 of them were from me. Let that sink in. 48 hours went by and no one bothered to post anything. Game is booming.

    You don't need to use any scripts, even in DF1 the only scripts that were really required were parry and ray.

    I kind of feel like people who make posts on these forums like OP also spend time making posts online about how wearing a mask to prevent the spread of coronavirus is taking away their freedom

    We raised 50k for these guys to get toy hunts.
    Pretty sure it used to say "Funds would be used for Embers"
    Now "Funds will be used to pay development team"
    Nothing makes sense with this company anymore. Legit could of gave the 50k to Bobby and he would of fixed this whole game. Only guy that was on the team that knew anything but gave up like he should when no one was paying him. Use monster.com or something. It's crazy you guys can't code but work for a video game company. Everything besides skins were just tweaks to the game...nothing actually added. The land tower was my last straw...seeing them just dump half the sea tower in mid map was like, ya we have no idea what to do along any of our paths.

    To be fair I think having a land tower is a good idea. I don't like that they changed it to pre placed cannons though.
