Game has some great factions/races. I just don't like FFA PvP.

@Palebane Pretty much the same for me. When I first came across this game it looked really good until I saw the FFA PvP part and just like that I was good and found something else.

Likewise, in the old days when I had the time I enjoyed it, but now I'm just prey so it's pointless and annoying.

Wow, I can imagine the sh*tstorm that would arise from wiping the current player character base.

Man, that would make Monoclegate look like a fart in a typhoon.

@pcgneurotic why because it would show how loud a small community in a niche game can be?

Hardly anyone plays this disaster.

@Ryukan In my opinion performing a character wipe would be a wise choice for the developers.It would mean that Darkfall 2.0 or whatever it may be called would be a full restart of the game rather than just a large expansion again with the same players still dominating.

It needs a fresh start, and even though a lot of players in the community would be upset, the community as it is generally sucks anyway. If they do a character wipe I would definately play again, and I know a lot of other people who feel exactly the same way.

From what I understand, the active playerbase is extremely small right now. They may feel that wiping characters would be their best shot at bringing people back to the game instead of trying to cater to the few current players by leaving their characters intact.

If the playerbase of Darkfall was to take a character wipe without raising a sh*tstorm then I would ahv respect for those people.

If there is a character wipe I would go back and try the game again. played it when it first came out for a couple months, but I just wasn't that fond of the FFA PvP and full loot crap. Still with a complete character wipe I would come back to at least experience the new version and see how it is different.

Screwing your loyal fanbase for fresh blood seems to be an industry standard these days.

Okay. Maybe this was hasty. But skill caps or something.

Honestly, their best shot at getting a larger population at this point probably would be driving out the current "community" that plagues that game.

I am intrigued by this, I must say, and I'm not usually one for open pvp games. I'll have to take a look at this.

Any chance of an FTP conversion as part of the 2.0 package? I'd love to have another crack at DF.

I would love for character wipes, it would be funny to hear the elitist bitch

This would make the NGE seem like a simple bug fix.

Not the same thing. SWG had a player base. This game's population is very very very low. Currently trialing. Last time I played the servers were packed.

I really liked the trial, but there were too many rough edges - particularly in the animation and artwork - for me to want to pay.

So I'll keep an eye out on this.
