    All the PR in the world isn't enough when ppl can get griefed off the game, the tutorial doesn't explain enough. Ppl need information in this game to get anywhere and actually fully experience it.

    Step 1; better new player experience, add helpful information so noobs don't get trade ganked / griefed

    Step 2; fix the delay / bugs / lag stuttering

    Step 3; make holdings more meaningful

    Step 4; PR, steam sell it, advertise, get the word out

    I understand that bringing in new players would be ideal. I just can't imagine that it's likely to actually get them to try the game in the first place.

    The whole game revolves around clans, but who is recruiting new players? Who would try a game with these graphics if they haven't played before or have a friend pushing them to play with them?

    In my biased opinion, they need to court the DF veterans. Bring back the clans, and the game needs conquest re added.

    There is a larger player base of mmo gamers that don't care about graphics. Look at EQ and UO. Thrived and are still alive today.

    The problem are broken and abusable game mechanics that certain people take advantage of. I know of entire alliances from df1 that quit because of abusing bunny hopping and water begone. I'm not saying to remove but if the game can get fixed and properly balanced then it's fine.

    Then they send out a massive newsletter with their balancing changes and fixes.

    UO is successful because they have the following.
    • Chaos/Order wars
    • Faction wars
    • Fast travel
    • Rewarding and less time consuming pve
    • Free place player housing
    • Alignment system
    Tons of other stuff just named the good ones.

    Darkfall has none of this. Roa is a huge waste of time, you gotta be nerding out to have any ounce of fun.

    Tell that to any one who was there at gulghat last night for that hour long raid 15ish vs 9

    I believe darkfire was with them and it was an epic fight.

    cool you got a fight and it lasted an hour but it's not consecutive in RoA, it's rare as opposed to uo, eq or ac.

    I don't mind getting beat due to numbers or vastly differing combat experience. What I do mind is paying a subscription just to get hard countered by something I can't even detect with my human eyes let alone my Mirdain ones.

    I recall an uncomfortable grind fest to raise my destro skills, pounded away at greatsword skilling for quite some time. Eventually I thought, damn my skills are up pretty damn high, working on the second set extension skills for archery and greatsword, and my attributes are about taken care of thanks to all that grinding/harvesting.

    Then I jump into a fight with a guy on a boat, me and two guildies wailing away on him with our greatswords, he takes zero damage. What? What the fuck? Of course he can hurt us back so that ends badly.

    I later learned its because of jewelry he was wearing stopped greatswords? Are you fucking serious? What'd he do? Go to Jared's and buy some immortality? Fuck that, unsub.

    There's also the lack of content and housing that's actually housing and not just decoration, but I'm pretty salty about that magic ring thing.

    RoA had 5000 subs at launch. How many of those were people who never tried a version of Darkfall before? I would guess less than 10%.

    I'm assuming you were a noob, so these things factor into how much damage your enemy takes:

    - The rank/damage of YOUR sword.
    - The level of YOUR greatsword mastery
    - The level of YOUR strength
    - The rank/protections of HIS armour
    - Chances are he had Ironskin, in which case, the damage mitigation is ridiculous. (Don't worry, it's only a 30 second buff now... topkek lmfao.)

    If I recall correctly, I was either hitting him with a knightblade or a justicebringer which I think were r50 and r60 respectively.

    I was in the mastery area, don't remember how high, I'd been able to get that second skill-set and was grinding it, so it was probably pretty up there.
    My strength was close to if not cap for sure.

    I don't know about ironskin, but a man should not be able to tank the blows from several decc'd out toons hitting him with greatblades and then turn around and three shot with fucking daggers.

    If you have to be absolutely maxed and using the best weapon in the game to hurt a guy, there's an issue.

    The only other thing I could think of is that he's Popeye and he was getting a special food buff from a can of spinach, and we were fools to have challenged him.

    What kind of armour was he wearing?

    Was it full orange infernal?
    Or full plate?

    Chances are he was ironskinned, which is pretty much like adding another set of armour ontop your already set of armour, and daggers DPS output has been broken since they changed them.

    They tried nerfing ironskin, but since they don't have a clue what they're doing, all they did was add 2 more necessary binds for combat.

    No ring will cause that much mitigation.

    Also a knightblade is a lot weaker than a justicebringer. Probably at least 4 points of damage weaker, which is alot when you're probably hitting him for 16's

    I just haven't been into video games that much lately, the RPG genre in particular doesn't really interest me anymore.


    Also the people who picked "No Content" aren't even real DF players. In Darkfall the content is killing other players. If you give a shit about quests or some new dragon to kill, please kill yourself instead.

    Exactly. Skin in the game, stakes. Makes every fight feel so much better.

    Group violence is good but group violence with a purpose is fantastic.

    Definitely NOT infernal. Might have been full plate, was a long time ago.
    and my companions one being our guild leader, were probably better geared than I. Lot of fucking good it did.
