    My review of Darkfall Rise of Agon, after spending some time trying the game and giving it a fair go during the past couple of weeks during it's free trail.

    I'll start with first impressions.

    Creating account process: Smooth
    Downloading the game process: Smooth
    Rise of Agon launcher style: Slick
    Load Screen: Could be faster
    First time entering into the game under the new UI & Textures: UI thoughts where you can't polish a turd, it is very similar and I forgot quickly the UI had been altered, it's styled very similar to Unholy Wars, it's very modern generic trying to look slick type of vibe. Textures alterations made me want to alt f4 within 30 seconds due to my eye balls beginning to bleed.
    Starter Quests: No change other then an item that gets your stats up to 25 quick, considering you made characters start with lower stats seemed very tedious especially as you hadn't even bothered to alter the quests themselves, with them being the same boring ones from over 7 years ago.. Firsts words in my mind where, "very lazy".
    Hotbar changes: Expected more
    GUI Responsiveness: No improvement from DFO.
    Re-sizeable Health Bar: "Was this supposed to impress me?"
    Combat changes: A lack of them.
    Community: Same handful of no lifers from at the end of DFO NA Server, majority toxic or mental health issues.
    Political Warfare Status: Non existent
    GM's: Arrogant and obnoxious.
    Forums: Overly moderated, highly censored, more then the WoW forums. #CarebearOverload #CantHandleCritcism, Lack of real discussion of meaningful content within the game.
    Skill Ceiling: Lower then Unholy Wars.
    Likely Hood of trying this version again: If you pay me.


    You're welcome.

    Sounds to me like you would not have played this game again regardless of what they changed.

    Technically if you take Destroyer VS a pure melee archery UW build from 2015+

    He's got a point

    You think I LIKE saying that? Cuz I don't

    Hybrid vs Hybrid or mage vs mage it's not even close though

    stampede, expl. weakness, salvo, pulverize, bandage, primalist robes, etc etc etc...

    sorry i agreed with 99% of ur posts but imo dfuw was entirely shit.. too easy, too cheese...

    i still think destro dfo is harder than everythjng on dfuw. even being lit op atm

    We're talking skill CEILING right?

    Literally None of that shit would be in my skill CEILING build except bandage and MAAAYBE stampede but only in some patches and it definitely wasn't required

    Now was the skill floor much lower, imbalanced, and cheese? YES

    There were some decent periods though and more melee/archery abilities assuming they aren't cheese definitely raises the skill ceiling imo

    I can link you a video if u really care

    I knew I would be accused of trolling before I posted this thread, because as I mentioned in my review this community is toxic and cannot handle constructive criticism of it's game.

    The biggest irony is none of your replies match my post for length or detail.

    Which would usually conclude that you guys are the trolls not me.

    maybe because 95% of your posts on this forum have been to trash other people and be toxic yourself, very few of the posts I have seen have had any sorta positive message in them, yet DnD in yours posts can do no wrong,, extreme biased reports come out of you and non stop trash talk about the people and the game itself when it comes to a topic regarding roa. but we are all trolls and toxic.. you are the very thing you claim others to be, a toxic, biased troll.

    What part of more abilities (trueshot, vampstrike, heightened reflexes, flurry, Lunge when it was made pinpoint with the range reduced) , disable only working if someone is blocking, intricate armor for fast attack low tank, faster movement, faster attack speed, = higher potential skill ceiling than left clicking + ww do you fucks not understand?

    You know what fuck it imma say it

    DnD will have a higher skill ceiling than RoA too if everything they've told me actually gets implemented ESPECIALLY when it comes to melee/archery

    good then go there and play, cause you live in a fantasy world where you are actually smart, and king and in the real world that is just not true.
    Part that is not a higher skill ceiling, is those skills were super easy to land, power attack was least 70 times easier to land. you think it took more skill, but some of the worst players in df1 actually became good in UW. why? because it was dumbed down and easier. simplified, less critical thinking or strategy, you did not have to play as smart as a warrior, cause you could simply stampede and or roll right back into the fight
