I'll speak mainly about the grind thus far. 1) PvE is boring and has to be done solo. This is boring. It's very boring to PvE in darkfall and making it nearly mandatory to solo spawns or duo them adds to the tediousness that is , gaining resources. No new players are going to stick around for the borefest that is DF1 pve. 2) Harvesting - City nodes were giving too much Shit . (almost) glad that is fixed. Regular harvesting is the most boring thing I've done in a game. Terrible change making it an "ACTIVE" activity. Listen .. I want to be mage in this game.. But I dont want to harvest for 2 hours to get 1 or 2 trips of regs to level my magic. And for those of you who say "Well go get gold and buy regs" .... Ok so kill harvesting? I dont see anyone ever harvesting outside in the wilderness anymore.. You've killed harvesting.. because it's fucking boring.. Even actively harvesting , I can't stomach it for more than 3 trees without totally forgetting what I was doing 30 minutes later and ending up with like 30 logs. And I have all day to sit here and try to make the game fun.. But you killed it a lot for me with the harvesting change. Now that the city nodes will no longer provide an amount of regs that makes the aforementioned grind tolerable .. I'm placing things on the back-burner unfortunately. You cannot make this game grindy. We are too old to grind in games now. Think i'm wrong? I hope you you have a financial plan - B guys. You're going to be left with very little wolves and no sheep... in no time.. Will keep my eyes on things for a while longer but I'm deeply upset at the grind. Besides ,the only players who have killed me so far have been the ones who have exploited mobs.. I know this because they were casting spells far stronger than mine and wearing R60's... this was the end of week 1... Week 1.. I dont think I'll be playing after the sub runs out. Main reason: The fun is gone. The grind has taken it's place. And believe me .. it really didnt take much for me to like this game. I like harvesting , then going out and hunting. But being forced to actively harvest and then PvE these mobs that just have seizures all the times while fighting you.. nearly dodging everything.. wasting all your regs.. Umm .. no thanks. Not fun anymore. I understand this is beta and this is my feedback thus far. Just feedback that's all. We all have different play styles.. Mine is more like the , hoard and help noobs kind of gameplay. And all I've seen in terms of PvP has been people wardecking NEW players in towns to steal their shit while they go exploit mobs. No I'm serious .. put a stop to the gayness. The noobs are being run straight out of the game by either these people , the grind , the boring PvE , or the realization that there is literally no incentive to play other than learning the game before launch. As far as what you are doing right? - Adding better loot to mobs and making changes to the UI that requires nobody use auto-hotkey. The patching speed and frequency is great. The communication with the community. Just remember that this game doesnt have to be a grind and it doesnt have to be boring. The more mats people have.. the more PvP there will be. Nothing will turn people away from a good game more than having no direction and noticing an early grind. DF1 is currently plagued with both problems. I know you are working on 1 of those right now. To the trolls: I dont really care about you. Flame on.
