    As title says, I'm trying to figure out if I am going to be playing this one or New Dawn. I want to play whichever one more closely resembles DFO as it was shut down.

    Is this the one that will have local banking? What new things will be added?

    Or I could ask, and maybe the devs could get the hint that people want to know this information, and in the About The Game section, it will go into detail. Until then, I think I will just ask the forum, thanks.

    I literally spent 10 seconds finding this thread. Don't blame the dev's for your own stupidity.

    Our developers have only been working with the source code for a brief amount of time. Until we have greater knowledge of the code, we have been purposefully vague about announcing any large implementations. This is not to say that we do not have extensive ideas and plans laid out, we first must establish what is possible and when.

    Our Early Development Roadmap is available, however this only cover our very immediate patches and quality of life changes we wish to make as soon as possible.

    What we can say from a development standpoint, is that Darkfall had many aspects which made it a game ahead of it's time and we feel that these should not be redefined. Combat in particular is something we wish to maintain largely and we have no wish to majorly revise. Our sights are set on areas of the game which were lacking or not functioning as intended - increased sandbox content, a viable alignment system and more robust content.

    We're gaining huge insights daily and we're learning a great deal about what we can do. We can guarantee that the end result will be something we will all be able to call 'Darkfall'.

    Thank you for the extensive response! Sounds like you guys have all the right ideas for what I am looking for with the new licensed DFO.

    The main difference I would say it is being ran by former players, which leaves an element of trust to worry about ingame in regards to favouritism and corruption within the game world from dev's and gm's

    What will work with DND will mostlikely not work here.

    They got 2 entirely different core idea's.

    One has Global banking, the other has local banking. So with this, you can tell that they're way too far apart.

    Now, i say this and i don't actually recall what will the DND system, i only know about the towers, but not sure how it will actually work.

    But i can tell, the tower system will only work because taking down the first tower is a warning shot. the other towers will be defended.

    In ROA, as soon as you attack the first towers, 40 players will teleport in to defend the first one. So destroying a tower will be as hard as taking down a seige-stone.

    I'm not sure about RoA, but New Dawn has specifically said they will not recruit GMs from the community, instead they will hire professionals. They also will restrict the GMs ability to interact with players like not being able to trade. I'm not sure if they or RoA will play the game as a player, but I remember a couple of AV played the game in some top tier clans and there was a lot of shady shit going on.

    One think about this is that RoA will be guiet good at launch and DnD will have soo much changes that i think that it will take a year after launch before you should try it, atleast thats what im going to do.
