    Darkfall: New Dawn

    Didn't play at launch, started much later, some of the things you mentioned were probably fixed by then, Cupe. But I agree that the game overall was a shitshow in terms of execution. It really had its moments though, like the first time I was on the receiving end of a bombardment from sea. And yeah the mob camps were engaging. Not all, I think the higher level mobs were all being exploited (like golems stuck in geometry etc), but as a low level fighting noob mobs it was pretty damn fun.

    Game itself is awesome (I played a bit with Howley which might have made it more awesome), but it already had issues with population back then, not sure why people would stick around longer on these servers especially since the game is now split between 2 companies....
  3. although i can never tell what's player and what's scav
  4. wow this game is amazing. just hobbled half-way across the map with a bag full of loot but not splints to fix my fucked up leg, couldn't afford the extraction point and was looking for another one.... then it got dark. 4 kills at least, 3 of them with broken leg
  5. installing... at 50 KB/s
  6. late to the party but if anyone needs a laggy, clueless squad mate, poke me on discord or pm
  7. I bought it. Honestly I'm not hardcore at all anymore, I don't even follow a lot of games anymore and this went completely under my radar, including the drama. I don't care about progression, I'm fully expecting some 12-year old to own my casual ass no matter if I'm playing Vader or not. Sorry to be enabling these people, but I just want to pew for an hour here or there when I get home.
  8. Nope, I sometimes see another person in Ginnunga online, but it's rare. I'm on US servers.
  9. Proof mounts are awesome: https://i.imgur.com/pjlxWNG.gifv
  10. I've now had a 12-hour erection thanks to the new maps and story line. Also the best-implemented mounts in any MMO so far. If you liked GW2 at launch, you'd love it now.
  11. It's Path of Fire preview weekend. Anyone can log in and try the first bit of new content an I think elite specs will be available next preview weekend in a couple weeks.
  12. Yeah, if you quit after Heart of Thorns stories and have not played since then, you basically have another expansion's worth of content to play through: 6 living story seasons with a new map each.

  14. I think I'll pick it up later just to play through Elona and the storyline.

    I have 200-300 ping most of the time, no idea about PVP but in PVE I sometimes manage to dodge red circles I think they went the Eve route with 1 mega server but it works in Eve cause the gameplay is not twitch-based and because there is a second (?) delay for all actions anyway. But GvG is based on the zones timezone, so usually GvG fights will happen at the prime time you play in, similar to Eve vulnerability timers. Lets you at least somewhat try to dictate if you will be up against other players with similar ping or not. Maybe. Dunno.

    Hard to say after just a few days and considering we havent done PvP yet, but in beta I always thought it's way too grindy, and it still is, but I actually don't mind as much. You can ignore the worst grind (harvesting) almost completely if you want. Mob grind is not bad and quite fun actually. The skill tree is cool and will keep you busy for a long time, you can specialize quickly in one line and then branch out later, similar to Eve. BDO I hated because it was super grindy + power highly dependent on gear. But here the grind is not that bad (again, ignoring harvesting) and at the same time power does not grow out of control as much. Catching up is easier, too. The real meat of the game will be in red/black zones though, and guild territory fight, which we have not tried yet. So far it's fun cause I get to play with the guild again, even though I don;t have much time. Solo I would have already quit.

    Oh... there are 2 newbie zones per area o_O Sorry, then Mountain Cross is better. Didn't know that, I started on that island and had to go to Cross afterwards.

    No, we're in Fort Sterling, which is the main city of the snow region. Mountain Outpost is the newbie hub of the snow region. So when you start out and immediately go there, it's where you would do the tutorial quest line instead of where you started.

    Daily expedition reward is shared between all of them. So make sure to do the highest group(!) expedition first before doing the rest, or you miss out on some silver and the sigil...

    When you start the game and you don't end up in the snow area (mountain outpost?), just go to the harbor master (ideally BEFORE getting your donkey or package rewards) and ask him to bring you to Mountain Outpost. If you are not wearing/carrying anything, it will be free. We are all in that area.

    Ad hominem aside it matters because they haven't managed to get that game out in a really long time. ;p So it's either revolutionary or it got stuck in development hell for too long. Meanwhile similar games have come out. You decide if it's better than those, I stopped caring years ago because they fail at hyping and delivering.

    I was very excited about this 5 or 6 years ago. Then they went completely radio silent. Now I don't even care anymore.
