Easy way we can promote DnD
By setting you discord "curently played game" to Darkfall: New Dawn, you can easily promote the game with out being intrusive to others.

Quick tutorial on how to do so :

1) Open discord User Settings (the cog wheel on the botom left) and click on the Games tab.
2) Click on the option "Not seing you game ? Add it!"
3) Select a program that's running most of the time when your computer is on such as chrome, firefox etc the clic "Add game"
4) The program you selected should appear below clic on it's name to rename it "Darkfall: New Dawn"

And voila, you are done, and now passively advertising the game !

Good to know
That could become some indirect viral marketing via discord if everyone do it

It'd be even better if someone (Ub3r?) spent a bit of time to submit the needed .xml changes to Discord and it gets auto-patched to all Discord clients.

Have tried this a few times before but DND never showed up in the list of games to add. Maybe after the last discord updates it will, I have seen it work for others.

Edit: didn't read the OP properly, apologies. This describes how to "fake" showing DND on Discord. Interesting possibility, will try that out.

Discord only recognizes the launcher and as long as the launcher is open it will show the game but as soon as you launch it disappears

simply open two Launchers ... one to play, one to advertise..
or simply take another running .exe and rename it, as suggested above...

Or we could just buy an account (or more then one) and then  the game developers could take part of that money and spend it some type of advertising.....

Why would they do that when booze and hookers are so cheap in Paris?
My dreams are all dead and buried
Sometimes I wish the sun would just explode

I'll take all ya sons of bitches when I go!

The same you can do on steam. Add Darkfall New Dawn to your Game-Library. The Link to Add a external game to your library is below on the bottom.

So always start the DND Lobby via Steam.

already did this last year and told ub3r about it and they told me they look into it, since then i saw multiple threads suggesting the same, seems Ub3r doesn't want to listen to us in this regards, not many will add darkfall like described here, so it will have only little effect but let's keep trying, also the steam thing is a great idea, i usually also do that for other games because it's simply convenient to have a steam shortcut

That is funny because marketing is more important than any patch they could do.

but you need those juicy dollars in order to be a little meaningful

Okay well if they needed money then maybe they should have made weapon/armor skins for people to purchase during Indev and use that money for marketing.
