I am surprised this game is still going strong as subscription-based MMO. I keep holding my breath waiting for it to turn to subscription-free. I got plenty of patience.

seems like they're making DF less hardcore?

@Kaoss

The issue isn't really about it being less hard-core - it's about attempting to fix a badly broken system.

Eg. under the old system if you got negative alignment from killing members of your own side, all you had to do was kill X number of players from the opposite side.

But there's nothing stopping players from making an arrangement to let them kill opposite side players X number of times to fix their alignment.

At this point negative alignment - as a disincentive to kill members of your own racial side - becomes completely meaningless.

"Enough with killing other players... I know that's the whole reason 99% of you play the game... but enough with killing other players!"

Context ftw.

If you don't leave out the second half of the quote, it makes a lot more sense.

I call practical joke:

"Enough with killing people", go to church and repent instead. Tasos is winding us up I think.

Church? Will there be different faiths? are they monotheistic? This game is about to get real hardcore... :P

Oh come on people, it was a throw-away line, a bit of the old humour at most and just a lot of knee-jerk reactions clouding your interpretation of the text. Crikey.

But I thought Darkfall is all about being a deathmatch arena.

i love how many jaded trolls reply to any post about darkfall. no other game has this many people spending time of their life telling others how "bad" it is.

that said, the allignment changes are a much welcome addition. wile 99% of players play to pvp, that has not changed, what has changed is that players now cant have a alt/friend they can kill for free allignment fixing, after they have broken the racial-rules and gotten negative allignment.

this is a good change that will result in more consequence then asking a guildy for his alt to kill and go blue again after you have killed a ton of racially allignmed players.

@Temko

Aion gives DF a run for its money in the jaded troll department.

The funniest thing about this post is that people seized on the first half of the quote and conveniently leave out the second part because it doesn't jibe with their "omg he said there's no more pk'ing" fallacy. Pretty chuckle-worthy.

Agreed on the alignment changes though, good job AV.
