Did Darkfall also see a surge of players because of the EVE scandal?

Not really. DF isn't really a replacement for EVE; they're both classed as sandboxes, but at the end of the day the setting, scope and features of each game are so vastly different it's hard to pigeonhole them both into one genre.

Perpetuum, however, did see a huge splurge.

A thousand times this. Darkfall, while not without its problems, is a solid sandbox game. That being said, the community is by far the worst I have ever encountered in my entirety of playing MMOs. They seem to have created some giant magnet for egocentric manchildren. Few and far between were the people who didn't act like complete assholes who are self entitled to boss everyone else around and then threw a giant hissy fit when you didn't agree. I would definitely give Darkfall another shot if the people playing it weren't so completely obnoxious.

@Ghostspeaker I don't really understand this sentiment about DF. Sure the forums were harsh, but I've never seen forums that weren't. Maybe DF's were worse, but only marginally. Although I'm not currently playing DF, I did in the past, and almost every player I met in-game was cordial and friendly. Even the reds I PM'd on occasion were friendly.

Interesting.

I wonder what a 'new game' entails exactly.

I'll be keeping my eye on this one.

Would you say that the old game is seeing some kind of "Enhancement" that would make it a "New Game"?

$10 says it's a F2P version that will be run side by side with the P2P one.

I guess the big questions are if a current subscriber needs to buy the game again, AND if there will be a character wipe.

Very excited for this, I stopped playing a few months ago just kinda waiting for the new content/expansion. Can't wait for more info and it's release!

Is Darkfall third person or first person view?

@Halldorr
It is a mix of first person and third person. Third person for melee combat and first person for casting and ranged combat.

Or it was last time I played it many moons ago.

I really liked my first month in DF - reminded me of Morrowind in many ways. Would LOVE to see a free version.

quick random question: how did you get your userpic to upload? Every time I try it never works and I've been unable to google any solutions
