    You missed the option "Neither, i'm playing a successful game with a real development team and production budget" :)

    Would you like it in a box? Would you like it with a fox? Would you like it here or there?

    Would be nice if Siege would come together on one server.
    I will try it out if my pc can manage.

    WoW is a joke. The PVP is even more hysterical.
    The game you cannot lose in!

    When I started UO, I tried to get my wife interested in it. She created a character on my account to have a look, but just was not interested.
    When we heard about DF, we both had a look at their web sight, and were both impressed. She will probably be opening a DF account as well.

    I honestly hope that this does not hit UO too hard. Otherwise I might not have anyone to sell my account to should I decide to make the jump.

    If darkfall has good crafting, good thief stuff, and a good item system, I will probably switch over. If not, I probably wont. But then again I dont really play THAT much UO in the first place.

    I'll try it out and see how I feel about it, like every other MMO I've tried. If I don't find the gameplay to be superior to UO, I'll still be here.
     
  23. I will be trying DF out, I'm doing the WoW thing at the moment, and having fun, but I really miss good pvp..although I have to admit, I'm a damn good tank driver/tower gunner.

    I think the Siege guild on Darkfall would be cool...I sugest the name "Shadow Rangers" just something I came up with, haha.

    Would fit since most of siege is stealthy. :D

    So...where is the option to vote for qqqa2 as a poll making n00b. :D

    Not sure how anyone can accurately predict if they will be dropping any game they are currently playing, for one that isn't out yet...

    I read on the previews that there is no "Stealth" as it is on UO. No being unseen while standing right in front of someone, no hiding in plain sight or out in the open. You have to use the terrain, take cover behind trees and the like. But your shadow from behind the tree can give you away, or your footsteps.

    Also no "Names of approaching players". To see a player's, or NPC's name, you have to be close enough AND put your targeting curser in him.

    Also, there is no "Mouse view" except when in "rest mode". It looks like that when in combat or just moving, you are in what I call "Case Mode".
    Your point of vies is as if you are in back of your character and slightly above him. You see what is in front, a bit to the sides and about 20 feet behind your character. And this perspective is apparently fixed. To see that is sneeking up behind you, you actually have to turn around.

    Well, they say it is a 100% skill based game, with around 500 skills, I would have to assume Yes. In fact, I seem to remember reading something about footsteps possibly giving you away as you try sneaking up behind someone to steal from or attack them.

    PS. There apparently is also a FPS view as well.

    Any body living in Vegas taking bets yet that the release will fall flat on it's ass just like AoC and WAR? Especially after all the years of phalic teasing its done so far?

    If so.. let me know.. I'm in. :)

    Its the first quarter of the year, so all the development resources from 2008 can still be written off as a loss. I'm guessing this is their opportunity to let it finally go down in flames and write it off.

    We'll see.. hope I'm wrong.. but probably not. Other companies with bigger resources have launched bombs this year. *cough* Mythic *cough*

    I am old and set in my ways. Lots of things look good, but I am too involved in Second Life to do anything else but UO right now.
