    It is

    But It's combat needs more diversity.

    Less grind.

    More content.

    Etc etc etc

    Whether it's a chore depends on your mindset. I enjoy soloing for 30 to 60 minutes at a time, and then hitting a dungeon with my clannies for another hour or so. If we get pvp, cool, if not, cool. When we're done, I log off and get on with my life.

    I'm not I a rush to max my character, or fill up my bank.

    So I'm fine with the game the way it is. I'd love to see a lot of the pointless tedium (6 different regs, skinning, enchanting...) removed, but it's nothing i can't live with, and nothing else on the market even comes close.

    No matter what they do or change Some of you will still see it as a chore. It is this new society that is just plain lazy.

    Interesting.

    You know, I wasn't able to see the other side of the grass when I was younger. I've played since beta. Df1.

    When I was younger, all I had was Darkfall. I didn't have any responsibilities or anything taking away my time.

    Now that I'm older I understand why many of my friends left. They were usually older as I started playing when I was about 16.

    I play quick games now. Dota 2, pubg. Why?
    I have no fucking idea, but I enjoy it ALOT more. I'm not smart enough not do I care to really think about it further than "its a chore to play Darkfall". It just is. It feels like a fucking ton of effort for very little value.

    Darkfall is definitely a lot of work, for short 3-4 minutes of bang.

    This isn't opinion, it's fact.


    The task system was a piece of the pie, many more pieces left though.

    Last edit: I realise I'm coming off as a blaphemer and I can't help it. My eyes have been opened. Or perhaps closed. Either way,

    Like so many things, it is these 3-4 minutes that keep us coming back for more.

    Definitely, the task system is by far one of the best ideas yet.

    I wouldn't mind it being a "chore" if holdings/ territory/ items had more meaning like in EvE

    In EvE there's TONS of shit necessary to run a clan empire aside from just pvp. It takes all types of players to have a successful clan empire in that game including pure crafters/ manufacturers, haulers, logistics, miners/ refiners, scouts, roaming gangs in that game the clan/ alliance you're in actually MEANS SOMETHING and there are tons of sandbox/political tools and other ways to play/pvp than just straight up fighting on the battlefield

    I agree. If it felt meaningful to me again, i wouldn't mind the chore.

    Is it because this iteration of darkfall isn't made by aventurine? I don't think so. It's something else.

    I'm still having a good time. I love the huge and open persistent world. I like the combat. I like the game.

    After a rough start of being ganked (which I didn't mind btw) at every spawn in the beginning, I kind of just kicked back and became a harvester/crafter. I'm very proud of my mining mastery 100 thank you very much. Now I'm getting back out there, finishing up some title quests.
    Yes, I'm still working on those. Total noob and learning the game for myself, but I'm still here.

    I found a nice spawn out in the middle of nowhere and have been there the last couple of days. I haven't seen a soul until the other night. Out of nowhere, this red player comes in and does a /wave. He buffed me the rest of the night and we had a nice chat, while he sat there and watched me kill trolls. Trolls you guys. I'm still killing fucking trolls.
    I've also run into Try Hard and he generously forked over some Papyrus, Limestone and Mahogany when I was mining ore in Heart of Enna.

    I like the in-game community so far, but I don't like seeing all this negativity on the forums. I know I am just a fresh new player that never played DF1, so maybe the entire experience is different for me and I see it all in a different light from the vets.

    Keep in mind that BPG made it happen...they actually brought Darkfall back! It just feels like everyone has their pitchforks and torches out already and the forums reflect very poorly on any new player considering to come to Agon.

    I love you all.

    That's certainly not a bad thing and we could use more of around here. Please never aspire to be like the vets. We're jaded assholes.
