    With the rise of “classic” games such as wow classic, old school runescape and Starcraft remastered. Would be great to see a DFO classic server. There are thousands of players that hold DFO as there favorite game would be great to see a specific server dedicated to DFO classic.

    Do you remember the original grinding process? I’d kill myself before it

    to each there own. I think most players enjoy player character progression vs no character progression ‍♂️

    At least the grind forced people to go out farming long term (thus allowing much more open world and dynamic pvp to occur)

    Aventurine literally did it the right way, start with too high of a grind, then lower it over time.

    This gave them more time to finish development before players maxed out and got bored with nothing to do, thus quitting

    It also made it easier for people who joined late to catch up.

    Long term REAL/ necessary progression is vital to sandbox MMO's, and the fact that BPG never understood that (despite many of us painstakingly spelling it out for them) just shows how incompetent they are

    I'd much rather play a classic DF relaunch

    YES to classic darkfall, would love to see it. However I much prefer the grind the way it is here in ROA (nonexistent). Grinding for weeks just to be able to use some of the spells I can use now would probably turn me off or kill me before the end.

    They need to enact a stat grind just by playing the game and killing mobs. The 120 stat pots are good for instant gratification but not fair for smaller clans or groups of friends playing.

    These "big clans" farm it with 3-4. Its laziness more than anything

    Be more wrong anyone can do a champ after a test run, its so easy heck the espenhal one only requires a pair of daggers and a staff capable of casting eldritch sphere for the duration imagine thinking smaller clans are suffering cause of it.

    drinking potions is just not an enjoyable way to level your character. Nothing more to say lol there’s a reason why no other successful games do it

    You guys should think of why you want DFO and see if that can be implemented here as this player base isn't really meant to be split.

    Make a classic darkfall server and let the community mod it, rather than bpg

    The population of this game has never come anywhere close to vanilla darkfall at its lowest point. I don’t understand why not just make a classic server. Classic servers have worked for so many other games!

    The issue is we all wanted more sand in the box. Not constant xml changes to stats, skills, spells, armors, weapons.

    don’t get me wrong. Bpg has added some sand. But they also did it by changing some of the core mechanics of the game. For example. Changing the village capturing system. That just made black powder and spikes and siege hammers more useless. They could of just added new places to capture and use the king of the hill system for those place of capture, for example maybe mines in the wilderness.

    RoA is a classic server, just with some improvements. Releasing a "Classic server" would accomplish nothing, other than the usually population bump that a new server gets.

    I shit on BPG as much as anyone for the current state of RoA, but it's undeniably a better game then "Classic Darkfall". Just blowing it up is not the answer.

    Anyone who wants an OG vanilla DF Server either never played actual OG DF (EU-1) or wants it so they can exploit or cheat, or bank jack clans (clyde frog). and be on the top for a few months because of it, to have some fun. and then watch it die out again.The original game was good for its time and those of us who were there for things like shard carrier sieges with 500+ people involved will always remember it fondly, but it literally could not come close to being a reality right now.

    I’m not talking about blowing up ROA just adding a classic server. Also this isn’t classic darkfall.................
    --- Post updated ---

    Not sure you have played any of the other classic games I have mentioned, they are a great model to follow. And none of them recreated the game how it was day1
