Darkfall Unholy Wars adjusts its economic rebalance

Oh, awesome, camping!

At times, it seems like the entire history of Darkfall is one major adjustment after another. It hasn’t been long since the game completely reworked and rebalanced its economy to make rare resources harder to acquire, after all. The game’s most recent small patch isn’t rewriting all of that, though; it’s tweaking values carefully so that players will have more ready access to resources through the rare mineral golems and various monsters in the world.

This patch also adds in some hotbar improvements to make said bars easier to use. Last but not least, two new Chaos Outposts have been introduced with high-end crafting facilities and no protections for players, which means lots of opportunity coupled with plenty of risk. Check out the changes for yourself with the patch notes.

falloutdc Zariarn Sounds similar to the plex in EVE Online.  Thank You for the bit of information.

I do not think it is possible to convert crafting based games to a true f2p model without going the pay to win route and still make the same profit as a pay to play service. 
Darkfall has the D.U.E.L item which can be sold on the market that unlocks 1 month subscription time. So once freetrial or unlimitedtrial hits you could theoretical play for free. They average around 150k to 200k+

falloutdc Zariarn   Semantics.  Many MMOs have the F2P label but they’re basically unlimited trial.

Perfect Hero I agree the only sandbox we currently have is Wurm online. Ryzom swg etc. are not sandbox games but non quest driven non linear grinders. Darkfall is a non linear freeroam openworld conquest game.
Your statement  how empty darkfalls progression is with a focus on pvp could describes every pve game there is aswell .If I replace pvp with pve and add gear threadmill and softwipe at the end we got games with a wow gear threadmill scheme and snowball pve games.

Zariarn Mortal Online is not f2p it has a unlimited trial. Darkfall may add a unlimited freetrial aswell “soonish tm”

They’ve got D.U.E.L. so they can keep the inflation in their economy rising at nice steady clip, there’s no reason to go F2P just yet.

Can we get an “emptybox” tag for this one. The worst part of darkfall is that it’s just a big capture the fort game. There’s nothing sandbox about it. Crafting is just a means to make gear for pvp. The pve is just a means to raise prowess for combat skills. Houses are just an extra bank for storing pvp loot. Cities are just pre-built structures that players capture.

I’d really like to give this game a shot, but they still do not offer a trial.

I’m surprised this game isn’t F2P with Mortal Online jumping on that ship.  I hope I just didn’t throw a curse on those who like the game as a subscription.
