    In a few months of course, once theyve ironed out a chunk of their pile of issues?

    FFA PvP ftw.

    Haha no it's not it's ****ing useless. It's buggy, unbalanced, and crippled by TF2 syndrome - that is, you have to be reliant on players to a point where you are unable to do anything without them.

    UO had at least some independence, so you could have fun on your own if your teammates sucked **** (like they usually do in WoW).

    Darkfall is interesting but not very holding, even being closer to a FPS it still ends up being just another keyboard mash MMO like WoW and AoC etc.

    Not to mention the graphics are just painful and the amount of exploiting/cheating going on makes UO look tame.

    Well U do bring up some good points...1 tho its NOT WoW :p LoL..but also two..they are working on it..heck the games been out since when Oct? At least no non PVP shard has been made yet. give it time I say. Plus if U have a problem the GMS are really good...Yeah it has bugs..then again UO has buggs too..and its 11 years old..give the game a chance..its fun...frustrating GOD I can't spell right now LOL..but still a fun game to play.. Remember how many people stuck with UO from the start..and the memories they hae..besides major lag...banks being full..and Heck not being able to log on for more than 5 minutes a day?

    Now back on topic..Darkfall..I really dont know.. I like EA games..again warhammer..But with UO..its my favorite..but still.....its 11 years old...that is alone is amazing in itself..Yeah WoW may have 11 Zillion players...most of them have 5 accounts tho...But UO is 11 years old..and still going strong...

    warhammer online isnt even what warhammer online should/could have been, let alone being what UO could have been.

    EA took what was a really interesting and original character development system, some great ideas and went "LOL WOW IS TEH GUD GAME IT MAKES LOTS OF MUNNYS LOL" and turned it into yet another wow clone, because the people makign decisions at EA have no idea about games in a business context and think copying the market leader (which works in many other contexts) is the way to go.

    theyd have been more successful if theyd have gone with UO2.


    im gonna try out DF, still. but not for a few months. i think the full looting, and the heavy focus on free for all pvp will be tops.

    yeah, but darkfall is out now, and will be playable in a few months. MO will take a while yet.

    Much better graphics/dev team/more money.

    graphics mean nothing to anyone who has played UO and liked it.

    well, cant comment on dev teams, that remains to be seen. the DF guys seem to be ok, if underfunded.

    money doesnt necessarily mean good. EA has LOTS of money, and it keeps failing at mmos. wow has even more behind it and is probably blizzards worst title (despite being their most successful).

    ---

    i think the full looting, and the combat and skill progression systems to be close to UO and as such worth checking out.

    (will probably look at MO anyway. i think DF is one of the more promising titles ive seen yet, it just needs 3 more months to look like being really playable.)

    Jesus christ learn how to type so you don't read like a blithering fool.

    I gave it time - 4 months plus beta, in fact. I gave it a chance. It failed to live up to anywhere near my expectations and therefore I quit. It was a chore to log in to the 'game' by 4 months. There was no fun and it was a grind.

    Were you actually planning to go anywhere with that or was this yet another aspergers-style fact-statement-without-any-purpose?

    Are of course, because it takes an experienced exploiter to notice the instant kills, unbreakable stealth, bots, toons "walking" faster than mounts, instant lvlers and severe duping.


    I was contemplating adding a "/sarcasm" remark to help you, as previous experiences like witnessing your inability to do mundane tasks; like count, have made me question your basic understanding of literacy and arithmetic.

    You forgot Elly woods inability to x heal, though his ability to run is 120+ :thumbsup:
     
  22. Elwood

    Yes, you highlighted my point perfectly, thank you.

    Oh, and I wasn't the only person that commented. Funny that Dal agreed and I don't even know him. I think 90% of the fel community (outside your ex KOV dog archer guild) would agree too if asked. That's a nice reputation that you have, congrats.

    Btw, what is 'severe' duping?

    Nice little deflection but I find it funny that you would comment on my 'basic understanding of literacy and arithmetic' and you start your first sentence with " Are of course, ". What does this mean? Maybe you're a pirate and you mean to say "Arrrgggghhh of course?" LOL


    @ JHoward - You play, and have always played a dismount archer as your main pvp char. Your opinion is worthless.

    LoL Elly Wood,nice little deflection from the truth there son:next:.

    I havent, nor do i now only ever play a dismount archer,i play a few different pvp and non pvp templates, but thanks for trying:thumbsup:

    Also was he ever even in KOV?, and if he was dont be jealous that you would never have been good enough to join its a fact deal with it...:violin:

    Yeah I was in KoV, I originated KoV lol

    Elwood, you're turning into Pet; when you don't have an argument at all, you sit and pick on technicalities that have nothing to do with the original point.

    I'm not going to argue with you further. It's pointless trying to understand the point of view of someone like you, and even more pointless trying to change it.

    Actually dain, you brought up the point of cheating/exploits etc, all I did was point out the obvious and others agreed with me. In fact, I would wager that if I asked all of the fel based players outside of your guild 9 ot of 10 would agree with me.

    Honestly man, what the hell does this mean? I am assuming that you think you will sound smart by talking in this philosophical tone. I hate to burst your bubble lad but it didn't come cross that way to me.
