    its been a very long time since i last logged in (i would say it was about the same time the other darkfall was still going)
    was just looking around at some old games i had and ran across this and decided to check on it
    I was suprised it still has patches so question is what all has changed in the game and is it worth to give it a try again?

    Population seems quite low, you still get decent fights at some vcp's but roaming seems kinda pointless. If that doesnt bother you i would say its worth playing.

    it was decent a month or two ago - no patches no content it just falls off again

    no doubt ibis or neilk will pop in here with the classic quote "it's been growing since launch and this is currently the largest active amount of players we've had"...

    It depends on what clan your in and what they do. I am in Horde and we are very active. We do PvE and PvP in groups all the time and get raided quite a bit.

    Last three times I’ve gone to Dungeon Dailies, there have been 1-2 players already there. Game is sparsely populated, but depending on your gaming preferences that can be a good thing or a bad thing.

    Game's slowing down a bit. Maybe reach out to Rats in Hats, definitely recommend them as some good homies if you're coming back

    1 good patch is all it takes at this point. 2 months ago there were 50 kills a day on metrics, for weeks after the village patch there were around 1k kills per day. It has slowed down but bpg has made enough money to propel them well into 2020 from all the people buying gold and RCT's.

    the interesting thing is the villages are appealing to people in ways which they never thought before, so we might see more players going to them for 1-2 months.

    WRONG

    The population spike was because of Covid-19 lockdowns (and other MMO's spiked much higher) now that lockdowns are being relaxed population will decline.

    A good patch will change little to nothing population wise without a wipe, 2 week advertising campaign, and relaunch.

    Game also needs staggered progression with the relaunch. Can't have people maxing their characters so fast or being so rich in r60+ items

    BPG knows this is true. That's why they have been so quiet. The only solution for RoA is a lockdown from Covid-20, so they are hard at work developing the new pandemic.

    Interesting point. The population seems a bit different from a month ago. I am no longer seeing 50 players at the bank in sanguine.

    I firmly believe this game requires more attention. How much are facebook/youtube ads per month?

    Population is down, game's still fun and there are multiple active crews still. NA primetime is perhaps the slowest time of day currently, that'll change as players come and go though

    Players are capturing villages with parties of 3 to 7 on average as soon as they come up. That seems pretty low for a large scale warfare game. Things could be worse, though!

    villages arent really large scale, sometimes they can be, but its very random. large scale fights are almost always sieges, which happen mostly on weekends I'd say

    I am new to RoA and returning DF1 player. I am subbed and playing currently casual active every night with a few returning players. I don't even post on the forums but I do wanna say this. Players make the content. Players make the population go up and down. I love seeing the responses to these posts. People if you want content and people to get on to add to population. Make it worth for them to log in and defend what they own and built up. Give them reason to login and defend or farm mats to rebuild or retaliate. From being back a little over a week. Mostly I see is people care bearing it up. Risk Vs Reward people but hey I am just a noob. Really enjoying being back to Darkfall However. Cya ingame.

    yeah i like this post, people leveling extremely fast and being insaenly rich in no time can be a problem.

    Directly before the village patch there were like 50kills a day maybe overall unless there was a seige lol. after the village patch there were 1k ISH per day, and never any seiges to augment that number further.
