    @BPG, stop with the bank space limit on freemium. It turns off veterans that still don't want to pay to play DF.

    I'm not going to pay to play DF as of now. I feel like the bank space limit is preventing me from playing because i have far too much items to sacrifice. I got 1500/500 bank space. I refuse to make multiple alt accounts just to hold all of that; it's easier to just wait for combat revert or for the expansion just to pay to play again.

    We bank stare in DF a lot. Now, i'm supposed to bank stare until i reach below 500 items just to play again?

    Why not buy a GTT with gold? Also, they said they are considering 750 or 800 items so that should help a lot.

    You cant win against stupid.

    Took me hours to drop under 500 items, but I did and it broke and I told everyone and then a GM or someone "fixed me"
    Now I have 480 some items and i just toss junk into a Clan bank.

    Still not going to buy anything off the store or eat a GTT because the game is trash, the community is trash, the Dev are cool except one who may have quit, he was trash. Server is trash, the discord is trash, and the forums are trash.

    I'm basically just wading through trash waiting for something to dig into my shin so i can dig it out and see if its cool, but it will probably just be trash and i'll probably get a hole in my pants from it.

    You just cant win against stupid. :pensive:

    Yes it is called the real world. Paying for a service. Get over yourself you are not so important outside of your home.

    You're a vet, I've seen you around playing for months now. Why can't you afford a GTT or pay for the subscription with real money?

    Why is BPG obligated to provide you with everything you want for free?

    700 would be adequate. Over 100 is taken up just by enchanting mats alone.

    Honestly I think the perfect number would be 650, but I feel a lot of people here would say it's too restricting.

    i will say, when it came time to our siege we had easily 5 people refusing to log in because of bank space

    i think we should go with dotix’s idea, everyone has 2k space and premium gets more slots

    It's not about being able to afford a GTT (in any form), it's about how the process is being implemented. Options are being taken away from players with time invested, changes are being made without proper QC. I understand and appreciate that BPG has taken on a challenging project and are doing it with minimal assets. That does not mean make poor decisions and then excuses.

    With more transparency, the community would be a lot more understanding.

    I'm not sure what you means by options are being taken away. It used to be impossible to play without playing. Now you can play without paying, but with some downsides. Options have only been added at this point.

    Proper QC, definitely an issue. I don't care how much they want to say it's a "soft launch", if people are paying money for the game and its broken, that shit don't fly. Test servers exist for a reason, so game breaking bugs don't make it into production.

    More transparency... at this point, I have completely given up on them ever being transparent. At this point the only thing keeping me going is the thought that this might be my last few months to ever play Darkfall before it's gone for good.

    Seriously these kids that expect everything to be given to them for free are fucking retarded Bernie Sanders voters.

    BPG needs money so they need a system that gets people to pay

    JFC, you rejects are STILL complaining about fucking bank space?

    Take an hour out of your week and farm 100k for a GTT if you dont wanna pay IRL money you degenerates.

    The only reason freemium exists is for people to test the game and have enough leeway to go premium through GTTs.

    Can literally 2 man a champ in 35 minutes and you retards are complaining you have to actually play the game for a little to be premium. Get real.
    --- Post updated ---
    Then go play Weeb MMO #432 so you can get off looking at a big pair of animated tits since you'll probably never see a pair IRL.

    If the game is literally free to play and it's still a chore for you to login, you're probably garbage at Darkfall.

    Hi, I am a freemium soft launch player and I have played almost a week. We now have a noob clan of 4 and are impressed with how fast we are able to level. All of my magic schools are already at 100 and most spells I use are tier 3 or 4 out of 5. Being a clever player, I'm going to freemium it up for a while till I can afford to buy game time tokens. By then I should be 100 in every base attribute and ready for the harder grind of getting to 120, I'll be using the XP gains of being premium to lessen the grind from there out.

    Fix your soft launch issues and listen to the playerbase, advertise free play on gaming sites and etc and you'll have a ton of noobs running around for me to gank.

    Most of the freemium feature are good.

    Bank space limit will obviously be exploited. As DF vets, i don't see how anyone can see the point in that. You get hit by a storm when you first login with 1500/500 bank space. It's worse when you login for the first time after freemium in the middle of a siege. When you done recollecting yourself, you make 3-4 alts for the first time and you make them carry the excess. So again, i don't see the point in bank-space at all.

    VCP restriction is highly questionable in a full loot game. Why would you want to discourage anyone from carrying their Sunday best in a ''full loot game''? It's bad enough that we still had players in robe capping VCP's when it was free. I'd rather prevent them from taking a single item type as rewards like runestones or portal shards.

    Clan restriction? Imagine your leaders going free. What happens then?
