+1 for wipe/seasons. Darkfall has no end game. It's far and away the most exciting MMO ever made... for 3 months or so. And that excitement is 100% dependent on population. If ever there was an MMO that needed seasons, it's this one. I genuinely have no idea what's to lose at this point trying it, or at least launching a second (non-asian) server to test the concept. Some of the largest free MMO emulation communities have a line up of servers to choose from. Project 1999 launched a Green server with the sole intention of providing a new launch experience that will eventually be merged into the main server and it's popular as hell. The model is out there to follow, it's just being ignored.
