    Will the old gods rule supreme again or will new blood take over? Who will be the elite players of RoA?

    the old gods will always be at the top of the food chain but more people are going to hunt alongside them this time around

    That would seem likely, but you never know ;) I am curious if some low or mid tier vet will return and take over. Some of us got worse, some got better, it's going to be interesting.

    there isn't really a definitive "best player"

    the closest darkfall got to a best player was probably luck considering he could beat everyone with a positive kill/death ratio, but everyone below that always had someone who could beat them consistently

    That's not exactly how I look at it, just because someone has bad matchups/history with a certain player or two doesn't devalue their triumphs against the majority. I tend to think of the "best" players as the overall most consistent performers who can withstand the test of time.

    Yeah, that's just not true. Luck was pretty much afraid to fight anyone that threw endless debuffs open world. Blue Poo and Elenae to name a few.

    Also, objectively, Luck wasn't a good mage and wasn't at the top when it came to water fighting. There will never be a "best" because of the nature of Darkfall. It's too dynamic and players pigeonhole themselves into being good at very specific things, rather than being good at everything.

    Feel free to name multiple contenders, it doesn't need to be all about picking the top dog.

    the best in beta so far have been gotja/rex/flash, all three are darkfall vets but flash and gotja weren't top tier in dfo

    after that it pretty much goes to anyone

    The contenders will be whoever decides to no life the hardest in the beginning out of the elite group.

    I'll put the top three from beta as either Arrow, Myself, or Rex in no lifer mode. Gotja is too inconsistent against destros to be considered, in my opinion. (Just to respond to @Sique)

    If anything, I'd put Gorthan ahead of Gotja if I had to make a list.

    i fought him in some duels me and obee vs him and keide and we went about 50/50 but idk what hes like in 1v1s or as a destro

    Feel free to ask Flash who he thinks is better. I'd say he's fully capable of making that assessment. You're a bit jaded when it comes to decisions because you sat in Serruk and only dueled. (Which isn't a bad thing - PvP came to you guys.)

    I'm quite curious if random hero, william wallance, or blue poo will play. All 3 were quite challenging, random hero I found extremely tough.

    Gorthan Kilset. He was one of the original RP members from the DFO, but transitioned into Blackwater during the Unholy Wars launch and has stuck with them since because RP died and separated.

    I don't think i'm better than animal and i'm not sure at all if gotja is better than animal either. There's a chance animal would destroy gotja because as animal said he is inconsistent. As am I and others.

    You know so little, young one. Darkfall has always been full of competition, determination, ego, and rage. People care a lot.
