    Fantastic update!

    UDL will be making a showing for this. I've also contacted Sinister leadership.

    By the way, I want to clarify before people get concerned that there will be ABSOLUTELY NO incentives provided during our pledge campaign that will affect gameplay. Although I can't go into specifics at this time on what those incentives will be, please bare in mind that we're all Darkfall players and giving in-game incentives that affect game mechanics goes against the very foundation of what we're trying to achieve with this project.

    Pretty much all of this.

    I think to add I think I have a unique perspective on DFO seeing as how I've never played it. but really want to from all the videos I've watched on it. (all of them :p)

    I'm glad to see that the intial stuff will be paid for and you wont need a kickstarter to get it all rolling, I would be very hestitant too put money in just because it's AV on one side of the deal :)

    Let's hope for Alpha access!

    good stuff.. finally df1 again :p

    Why not make the server during alpha f2p?

    - new players can try the game
    - proper stress test aswell.. df1 vets players alone will never crash the server ( amount of people)

    I really hope for a wipe as well. Getting everyone down to the same level of skillpoints and equipment. BUT, with that said, if aspects of the game that you mention are to be changed to minimize the gap between a player thats been in the game for a while and a newbie, it might not be required. But still, most people like to have a fresh start and making everything even.

    Controls the amount of players playing in the early stages. We can't handle 10k people in the first 10 seconds of the game. We will be ramping up to ensure quality.
