    Does that mean that they will wipe when beta ends? and we will all start frantically grinding?

    Do you think population will really take off? I have't played since DF1.

    Are there casual players left? can you just pop on to go looking for some unsuspecting individuals to slaughter? it used to be insane back in the day, is there any of that magic left ha

    nobody can tell the future but from what people have said there are quite a lot of guilds ready to play at launch, but nobody will know until the day comes. We can only hope it gives the feeling EU launch did, there were tons of people everywhere. Even UW launch had significantly less than original EU launch, but it still felt quite populated, at least very early on. All BPG has to do is get the initial pop/hype that darkfall has seen in the past, then maintain and grow it with future changes

    Hmm, sounds optimistic, but its a good game so let's hope it works out.

    I will give it a go at launch, I just hope its got enough player base to provide PVP and keep me entertained and i can find some people to play with

    Unfortunately more than likely it will be all veteran players and very seldomly a noob/sheep. The game needs to add alot more to entice non pvp 24/7 players.

    Very few people are playing right now with the end of beta in sight, I know I would be taking a break myself if I was on the other side of the fence.

    Instead of claiming gloom and doom everywhere, how about you make sure your friends know about release and are planning to join?

    no ones wants to here it but the fact of the matter is:
    The map is huge and needs 10k players plus minimum. Anything less and people will just duel in cities elitist vet clans will take over and dominate. People will get bored and only login for sieges, new players will get frustrated with vets dominating them. people will stop playing quicker than than new players join up. Hot spots will happen activity will be on one side of the map and not the other. Huge peices of land will have no one. Hamlets and cities will be empty because people flock to were activity happens. Population will slowly decline. Population has always been a serious problem with this game.

    You guys have been so fucking hung up on "launch will save us, lets just patch " since the beginning of rise of agon that you dont see that you should of been trying your hardest to acquire a population that can fill the map and continue to grow.
    Im 100 percent sure that launch is going to be your highest population in rise of agon ever. and then fizzle out into nothing because it just wasent good enough. You should have put advertising, marketing and building hype number one on the priority list and then patched after the massive launch you needed and will not have because you wasted all resources on fucking patching for the only 300 people that even give a shit.
    patching keeps players advertising and a healthy population brings them.

    Launch will happen then the population will decline then the game will be dead.

    There are 19 people on the forums all vets, launch in less than a month. No new players no hype no excitement, no one knows or gives a flying fuck. Im not trying to bash you guys im just 1 not delusional and 2 very sad to see what im seeing, because i myself love darkfall. What in the fuck!!

    yap yap yap yap. No one wants to grind to have it wiped, everyone knew the beta would be only the most hardcore of darkfall fans. Patches are guna keep rolling, hype will keep building. Theres 12,500 members on this forum, if 10% of those people play at launch, the game can snowball into a huge healthy population.

    There should be people on the forums excited trying out builds talking about what they are gonna do at launch discussing problems and solutions for the game, noobs asking questions. People starting up new clans recuiting. People talking shit pre launch clan beefs anything, BUT THERES NOTHING just a few hundred vets saying wait for launch cause they dont wanna grind.

    There should be new players checking out the game and questioning it all day every day up to launch but theres not, and its very discouraging, if i came here as a new player seeing this game for the first time in beta 26 days from launch and it says 11 members online and 10 guests id immediately close the tab and look elsewhere, why because it would look like just another shitter game with zero population and no hope, good game or not.
