    Not to beat a dead horse again, but if any of you thought a patch like this was going to bring anyone back to the game... Then you haven't been paying a lot of attention.

    Instead of caving to the 25 people who voted on some poll a literal bloody year ago, work should instead have gone into making an actually meaty patch with additions and refinements to the game. Instead, we get this "revert" patch that ends up skipping the "additions" component, the first proper game update since "freemium" launched is shockingly insignificant and completely fails to resolve most of the gigantic issues brought up this year, since everyone in this echo chamber is too far in the past to see anything else.

    Is this patch going to bring in new players? Nothing really changed for them besides a terrain texture improvement and some default binding changes. This doesn't solve the fact the GUI as a whole is a train wreck, that combat takes far too long to get into, and then catching up to the established player base is outright impossible.

    Is this going to bridge the New Dawn players over? Nope, and far too late on that one, those players already quit RoA again months ago.

    So who was this patch aiming for to return to the game? Just those 25 people who voted on some polls in 2018?

    BPG is leaping from one missed opportunity, right onto the next. It is a frustrating sight to behold. Get some proper project management.

    Edit: I checked in on my clan, no one seems excited for this patch. The siege windows should have arrived months ago, now the guys already lost all their holdings to NA time sieges, and they no longer got a way to siege them back since NA clans will be having EU primetime as their off-peak. That's one hell of a death grip. So much for "siege windows just make it more expensive", huh?

    They are trying. That's more than we got from AV during the last year of Darkfall.

    There do seem to be various ninja changes. I understand frustration buts it's also interesting to figure out the new situation. It's a work in progress for sure.

    You need to calm down. Play the game if you want. There will always be playa haters out there. Shake it off. Shake it off.

    R.I.P

    Casual players to be camped at chaos stones, since that is the only way to affordably recall to that location now.

    Dumb changes

    • The roles are:
      • Member: Default member status allows use of facilities. (nothing functional here, will add later)
      • Security Officer - Can operate city gates
      • City Manager - Can add or remove individual players ability to bind at a city.
      • Auditor - Can view member roles.
      • Communications Officer - Can set clan message of the day. - (More love planned for this:D )
      • Construction Auditor - Can view clan city elements list.
      • Construction Manager - Can build clan city components
      • Personnel Auditing - Can view the full list of clan members and roles.
      • Personnel Manager - Can send clan invitations, accept applications, and adjust player roles.
      • View Diplomacy - Can view clan diplomacy settings.
      • Diplomat - Can set clan standing toward clans and individuals. - (more features coming for this!)
      • Warfare Specialist - Can manage warfare.
      • Director - Includes all other roles and can assign roles up to Director. Can only be applied by the Supreme General.
      • Vault One Query - Can view items in vault 1.
      • Vault One Take - Can view and take items from vault 1.
      • Vault One Container Take - Can remove container and their contents from the vault 1.
      • The same options available for Vaults 2 and 3

    What a huge waste of time and so unnecessary

    Ya that was a headache for sure. Think most of us just wanted to make custom roles or have old roles but custom bank permission

    Lol imagine someone looking at the game and learns that he can become "director" of a clan in a medieval/magical themed pvp mmo.
    That sounds so horrible and for anyone interested in immersion well.. hopes were just dashed in a big way.
    Makes me sad the direction the game has taken recently as I really enjoyed this game and all of its versions over the years, thinking FINALLY a company that knows what the players want because they themselves were players at one time and now we have "roles" instead of ranks and I can be a "director" I mean, did they steal that idea from Eve? I just do not get it and my interest in the game has declined even further and you can bet I am not the only one.

    I wish all my runes from my books could be unmarked. I wish delays on switching skills and weps was back. I wish eye rot was like the way it was before this patch or bring back screenshake at thr very least on it.
