    How low does the population have to be before you stop combat changes 100% and charge ahead with content?

    Not all your developers know how to design content? Train them.

    These combat patches...you're killing your game and you don't even know it.

    That's pretty much what they are doing now. Though Relics still need to be developed and that's okay with me because it's combat and content.

    We told them this before they even started on it.
    They ignored us for who knows what reasons. Ego? Stupidity? No clue.

    What I don't get, is that these changes are meant to go with relics right?
    Why the hell didn't they wait until relics were more or less complete before doing it?
    Why did they basically create a dead as fuck game for weeks to months by forcing through a change that relied on another change?
    It reeks of extremely poor leadership in BPG land.

    Not to mention when we started this, we had MORE diversity in play styles and gear setups than we have now. Now we have 2 viable ways to play the fucking game. My favorite play styles are gone. I can either go light mage or full heavy. Boring as fuck. You basically removed all the middle ground encumbrance play styles for what reasons again?

    11 ganks across the map so far today in the last 20 hours or so. Looks like changing combat is really what Darkfall needs.

    edit: apparently 4 of those kills are on naked afk alts

    edit #2 : Fengor still has the best like game of Agon, but he's slowing down a bit due to old age. Took him 5 minutes, way too long.

    The only developer that talks to the community (Kilrain) spends 100% of the time discussing new combat ideas/changes. Forgive me if i don't have your blind faith.
    I think Kilrain has some good ideas, but none of those should even be discussed until content is addressed and the population reaches a healthy size.
    The ball wasn't simply dropped over the past 2 months.... it fell through the fucking floor.

    That's just not true. I'm actually AV's biggest critic and 100% of the time is hyperbole. Have a look at what's coming up.

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1md4Z28upHACcx9hoiyjRLDi8c-JTuK-HM7GWnxvBDm0/

    The biggest problem is that they changed combat with the promise of relics and they are nowhere to be seen.

    My bet is that relics are months away. TCS even further, assuming the game doesn't shut down before that. As bad as they butchered the combat changes I have a feeling relics are going to end up dumb as hell and break pvp when they come out as well. I am dreading seeing darkfall become reliccheesefall.

    "what's coming up"....? That's just not true. You have nothing to back up what you're saying.
    I have an empty server and an ocean of theorycraft in discord to back up what i'm saying.

    I honestly believe BPG has the ability to create the right content... i just don't know if they'll make the right choice.

    You're asking for content. I provide a document from BPG detailing upcoming content. What more do you want?

    I'd like for them to deliver on that content and stop driving people away with more combat changes.
    Why is that hard to understand?

    You realise we want the same thing, right? I'm just showing you what you want to see and you still find an issue with it.

    Fun fact: The first 6 months (May 2017-Nov 2017) has about 2300 entries. The last 6 months or so (Dec 2017 - June 2018) has about 461 entries.

    When you think of it that way, the population drop off in the past few weeks because of the combat changes is just a drop in the bucket.

    I'm willing to bet the slip started when billboards and markets were placed into NPC safe zones. There's no risk in this game anymore. There's no thrill. There's no challenge.

    I'm still amazed that billboards and markets are in these NPC safe zones.... after all this time.... after the conflict on the server has completely dried up... after people have literally quit out of boredom. There is no excuse for the blatant disregard of the obvious.
