    Can we get a sticked list detailing the differences each version plans to execute so we know the differences between the 2? I already know DnD will try to implement too many changes and will be sticking with RoA at launch, but a list would be nice.

    Sure.

    RoA- Small minimal changes that are within' reasons (IE: Sword+Board, Minimize skill gains while keeping grind, fixing exploits and bugs).

    DnD- Change the entire game that shoots for the stars.

    There you go.

    RoA Crew sounds more profesional then DnD.

    Adding classes and pretty much changing everything sounds really bad to me.

    Ill stick with RoA :)

    Hopefully RoA wont be charging the same insane prices that DnD are trying to charge.

    I haven't seen their prices, but I don't think it's fair for us to expect bargain basement prices for this. Lofty aspirations aside, this is going to be a small niche game and it's going to take a significant financial contribution by the players to keep it going. I think that's just reality.

    Fingers crossed for a more freemium style model.

    U must be fucking kidding my son. P2p only. Also BPG can count on my finnancial support. Kickstarter or buying 10 copies of the game just to keep it going no problem.

    why don't people understand that DF has the potential to be huge.. the only reason it was niche was because of the shit company.

    Cool story bro, if you actually wanna get new players to try the game there can't be a box price, restrict the non paying accounts and make a sub needed to play the game for real.

    First you need to setup a game server and all that shit , it cost money. I for one am willing to pay to bring that baby to life. Ppl like u will have to wait untill all is tested and implemented to even start thinking about droping box prices. Sad but true u cant give product to the mass if u have nothing to show.

    This. Darkfall was never really advertised. It was just by pure luck I stumbled upon it back in 2008 when I was so tired of WoW TBC, so I kept searching for new MMOs until I came over the trailer randomly.

    Imagine if Darkfall was actually advertised through social media, tons of people would come to try it in beta since everything else is shit atm in the gaming scene. And out of all that tries a fixed DFO, I honestly think we could expect a healthy population.

    Yes, there's no way I'm paying $22 dollars CAD monthly for DF.

    I'm actually really curious what you have against the RoA team, namely Lars Conwall. I don't know if he ganked you and took your gear or bindcamped you in DFO, but what could he possibly have done to you that makes you think hes such a bad guy. I have personally known Lars for years, and I can assure you that he is incredibly passionate about DFO, and there is no scenario in which he would ever do anything that would have a negative effect on the project/game. If you think for one second that someone's in-game actions whatever they may have been translate to his level of professionalism outside of the game, you clearly have at least mild brain damage. If you think that the RoA team is unprofessional, I want you to look at the website and video they made, compare it to the new dawn site.

    Humor me, and please tell me one specific instance of Lars wronging you. I actually at this point just want to hear what you think he did so I can have a good laugh.
