    It died because they never patched at all; they simply did not care. While they said they would patch, they were instead devoting resources to UW, which eventually lead to darkfall being taken down.

    Should be some sort of list in game that shows players what they need to kill in order to get what they want. If a noob needs Greater Magic essence they won't know wtf drops it or where to go. Is something being worked on for this that I (most likely) missed or are we just going the 3rd party map route again for that kinda stuff?

    Yea, and you can generate javadocs for all of the java code in just a few mins. This is a year down the road after they've had the code, and they're still not handling exceptions and letting the server crash.

    Damn those patch notes look great. Good job BPG, glad to see the project continuing down the proper path. I wish I had more time to play :X

    Okay, so the running process receives a perfectly normal command to halt abruptly? I just fail to see how it wasn't an exception being thrown that caused the client to exit on loading-finish when there existed deleted spells on the hotbar. Interesting. Maybe anti cheat saw it as a hack and closed it down.

    whatever you say to the volunteer dev, he's just gonna reply with a smart ass remark.

    listening to his replies makes me want to not give this company another penny tbh

    I think it's your attitude that is changing the sound of my posts in your own head. Read it in the voice of Marry Poppins and see how that feels instead. I hope you have a better day today :)

    youre forgetting every UO fan and his grand father was following this game back then, then it flopped and people lost interest. This game has no way near 10% of that following, so thinking youre going to have close to the same launch is wayyyyyy over estimating yourself. No one besides old players that didnt quit know about you, then take away some of those to the other DF game and it just doesnt cut it.

    The problem with this game, the community and the game developers is this. You all live in a dream land where things "will happen" on their own with little effort, a little bitching and minor patches. The reality is, with 0 marketing, the server currently where it is and the game looking like its from 2008, within 3 months the playerbase will be smaller than what the original had in its last month.

    Now, you can all say whatever you wish or even delete this post because it doesn't fill you guys with warm fuzzy goo, but youre lacking sooooo much and youre too deluded to realise it. I applaud you for trying, i really do and wish you the best but until you guys actually fix mistakes AV did, youre running down a much steeper path without hanging rails.

    P.S, mc nasty no one gives a shit about what you say. one of the dumbest people in every aspect of the game if id ever known one.

    I'm sorry to say this.. but the current situation for Darkfall ain't looking promising.

    Working on fluff instead of working on use full noob friendly features is the other way around.

    - average 500 views on patch notes or any news by BGP team
    - 25 days till launch.. zero marketing. no hype building nothing
    - complete overhaul of loot tables promised. without testing this during beta

    Still missing the most valuable stuff for the game:

    - interactive map
    - guidance for noobs

    Where the FCK is all the money we donated to this project? 800 euro a mounth for a server aint money draining.. instead of that we pay plane tickets to people of BGP to go to some convention, which has almost zero impact on the population.

    Several wrong decisions are being made.

    Instead of above.. I prefer a programmer to get on the payroll

    While I agree with most of what you say I think it will last a good 6 months =0. Also its funny, you are one of the worst players I came across in DF1 yet you call out mc nasty.
