Darkfall’s next patch nerfs fast travel, tweaks mounts

    
27

Aventurine is teasing Darkfall’s latest patch, which is currently scheduled for the “last week of February.” A new clan perks system based on the player perks system is in the works, as are leaderboards, mount changes, and significant alterations to the PvP sandbox’s fast travel system.

“Instant travel makes the world feel less populated since players can and will avoid to their advantage other encounters, or congregate massively and instantly to places of action, ” Aventurine explains. “Removing the easily available summon friend capacity, as well as rune stones, will increase player movement out in the world and give more meaning to [the] traveling-faster-on-roads risk-reward mechanism.”

CazCore Well he utterly failed to mention that he knows people playing the game. Had he made such proper statement, I would’ve taken him more seriously.

im not sure how to feel about these changes. 

i suspect they will just make the game way more grindy.
the upside is that its more of a virtual world sim now.
but my priority is always on fun and minimal grinding

CthulhuDawg yeah see my prior message.
to add to it, this latest patch could be another population boon.  i wouldnt guarantee it, but it seems like most people wanted these features.

Perfect Hero if you go in and sample one day, you can’t get an accurate idea of population.

the playerbase fluctuates wildly over the past 4-5 months.  depending on the patches.  they have been making lots of changes, and it has weeks at a time when there are quite a few people running around.  ive seen it cycle back and forth between lifeless and full of life 3-4 times in the recent past.

this latest patch might be another wave.

I really wanted to like this game, it was fun for about a week, I liked the graphics and animations. I just felt like the game was missing something, and didn’t have as much time as other players to continue advancing in it to stay competitive.

This is actually historic. EVE and DarkFall both nerfing fast travel – I don’t thnk any MMO has ever gone in that direction before. I like it.

Same old darkfall. No population with the exception of a very tiny group of fanboys that run from site to site saying the game is better and the population is good. It’s not.

Reihen  This is comedy, you say its growing yet you haven’t played it in awhile but you follow  it.  Me thinks you’re believing the biased forum hype.

Caec CthulhuDawg Since around Sept, the population has been steadily growing as people quit ArcheAge. There are a lot of actives! The game is now free and only requires a monthly subscription.
I would also venture to guess that all this recent talk about hardcore PVP mmos has a lot of interested mentioning Darkfall in the boards.
