    It's been about an 8-9 year journey for me. I miss the days when I could actually tolerate other games for more than a month, but Darkfall ruined that for me. Is there anyone hanging around here who has been following since '01?

    Since about 2008. I'm in the same boat as you, I'll try to get into a moba, or a different MMORPG but the braindead gameplay makes it impossible for me to enjoy. I actually miss when I was one of those sheep that enjoyed a game for what it was but Darkfall changed that in me.

    Started following the game in 2003 and entered Forumfall circa 2005 when Alpha was announced :wink:

    I knew the game since 2008 because of my father, but only started following it and playing it around late 2009.
    I was 12/13 years old that time hehehe.

    Late 2005, though ill admit for quite some time it was just the occasional check up on the forums.
    It was hard to actively follow because of all the vapor ware rumors and wide spread debates with no basis for arguement.

    I first heard about DF somewhere around 2006, but I didn't really start following until mid-late 2008 when I found a video made by some beta NDA breakers. Before that I was wary about getting excited about vaporware, but then I was hooked when i saw that there was a real, semi-playable game getting ready to release.

    2008 found the game, bought it as soon as i could post-launch past the whole disaster that was. Joined forumfall in 2010 after that.

    I first heard about it from my good friend Meshuggah Wardrummer (lol) in 2008.

    I was heavy into WoW at the time. Didn't like PvP, never imagined myself playing a PvP game, and now here I am.

    I first heard of the game in around 2006-2007, but I only joined the Forumfall train when beta registration opened in late 08. God damn it's been a long time.

    Since 2003 in Shadowbane era (the first DFO image I ever saw was an alfar with a spider mount way back then), but then I couldn't do games for many years. Played DFO for 2 months in 2011 then shattered an elbow, got 5 or 6 months in 2012 before it went down. One of the saddest days.

    Kind of the same Story here ... i came with Bewahrer der Welten into DF in beta and i didnt want to pvp at all. But i wanted to Support my clan. Was my first free aim game ever (some hours halflife do not Count i guess) and moving and firing at the same time where a big Task for me.
    Add to that that i am really old and started gaming with the Age of 21 and you know why i Play how i Play.

    But the Special Magic of DF got me and made me not beeing satisfied with any other game. I am still bad at the game and will always be, but i dont want to Play anything else. Maybe i should swith Name to Walking lootbag^^

    Vanguard was actually a decent game if you played on one of the FFA servers. Of course, its horrible launch overshadowed this and people avoided the game like the plague.

    I heard about it sometime around 2001 - 2002 when they announced it. I was still playing EQ1 at the time and was so damn excited for the information they had, like capturing dragons to defend your cities. I followed it ferociously for a year or so after signing up for beta (2005-2006). After that I just browsed the forums once every 3 months or so until real shit started happening.

    Vanguard was an amazing MMO on the FFA server for people that stuck with it past its ugly launch. Truely a hidden gem. (My avatar is Vanguard)

    Followed DF since 2005.
