    But here's to hoping.

    When it's ready... I am sure the Dev's understand the consequences of putting out an unfinished game.. With AV's past, a bad release will destroy Darkfall forever....

    It was "ready" when the game shut down, it should be so still. No reason it should take a long time to put it live in a beta status.

    When the game shut down... Why put out the same damn game that failed? They want to make the game better, so Darkfall doesn't shut down again.... "I feel like I am taking crazy pills....."

    So you don't want to play until they have majorly overhauled the game? Like around christmas time or something?

    As of Wednesday, they still didn't have the source. I would guess 2 weeks from next Monday is when we get to hear the splat

    I'm sure now that they have the code they are not only trying to work on some initial fixes that they can find, they are mapping out and cleaning up the code where they think they can.

    Then they have to set up the sever infrastructure, account systems so people can even log in or create their accounts, then they will probably start getting more detailed with their time tables and what they may wish to direct their alpha testers to collect data on.

    This is all the while collaborating amongst each other to develop this game on their own resources alone, continuing to develop their work-flow *Something AV never had* and finally put their plans into action.

    I'm sure this doesn't even come close to describing what they are actually having to deal with. So how long should this take? I'm no Dev. So unless you are one and know how all this works on a very detailed level for a long-term project in game design, I wouldn't go making declarations on how soon this should come to fruition.

    That being said, I need alpha, give me alpha. Alpha, pls.

    Even though the game was launchable when the server shutdown these guys have to more or less do everything that the DnD guys have to do in relation to getting the supporting services setup. That being said it may be a while depending on how well things go for them.

    Stop trying to troll and actually listen.

    Both developers stated they will be releasing DFO 2012 as an alpha, with the idea of learning how to patch it and tweak it. The actual release will be the first step of their intended version.

    So, the statement of "it was ready when they closed it down in 2012, what would make it take longer" (paraphrasing) is a perfectly reasonable statement that could get a perfectly reasonable answer. We want to know when they will be releasing their alpha/DFO2012.

    But you didn't do that, and decided to post that response.

    there is enough content in the game to last at least 6 months with 2012 df

    they should launch the server first then work on updating it

    agree. a lot of us tried Unholy Shit for months.

    obviously we can deal with any kind of DFO again.
