    There has been a lot of discussion about Darkfall having a tainted name. I don't know the terms of the contract between Adventurine and BPG but if it's possible I think it'd be worth looking into re-branding the logo.

    Whenever people search Darkfall on Google they're met with a flood of negativity. I'm not saying get rid of the name Darkfall, but rather go by Rise of Agon : Darkfall. Here is quick 2 minute concept I made to show how ROA can grab the attention right away rather than the current logo which makes the reader see Darkfall first.

    It might be contractual that they HAVE to keep "darkfall" as part of it.

    But that logo is amazing!

    Pretty plain- needs some more graphics. I made some adjustments.

    Thanks, and yes I would assume that is true.

    Rearranging the wording would allow ROA to pop up in search engines rather than the old Darkfall/New Dawn.

    Rise of Agon: Dark Falls, Light Rise. (joking)

    If they have to keep it than it may make little difference if its moved to the end of the title since I figure the search engine will still bring up Darkfall's dark history, though I get the intention to try to minimize it. May be best to ensure on the ROA site an explanation on the stigma from the old game, though it may also be against the contract to say anything around, last company really blew it. (even though anyone can look it up and see) Should just try to state that there was alot of controversy and things took a big change with 2.0 and since then old players always wanted it back, and now the old players brought it back.

    My suggestion was to cover the Darkfall in some thick smoke, so you could barely make it out, like a captcha.

    I think darkfall is shown to much , maybe Rise of Agon (all up front and personal.)
    Then underneath in small font, A Darkfall Game.

    Make people think darkfall of the engine more than the game itself.

    good post I agree. Googling Darkfall shows that the game released in 2009 and has a bunch of shitty blurry pics

    Yeah that's another big aspect of it. Everyone searching for darkfall videos are met with outdated UI and horrible video quality. Many Rise of Agon videos on the other hand have great quality and show off cool new features.

    Or rename it to Dankfall. Attract the meme crowd.
