General Discussion / Re: Let's just pretend...
In order for me to start playing semi-activly again?
Any sign that the server wont shut down in the next weeks and a patch to show the game is still being developed.

But if you want me to recommend this game to anyone who hasnt played any darkfall version yet.... i wanna see a new interface, fuck those brower things. Free trials or f2p-system, better grp pve viability, better beginners questline (current one is stupid, doesnt explain shit), territory control for clans and races, market overhaul with buy orders and only one regional market system per race territory and not 9 differnt ones.

Problem is, people who enjoyed playing dnd will have a hard time enjoying roa. I tried it for a week before i gave up on it and there is a good reason not a single one of my clanmates has any interest in roa and rather plays league or some other crap :/

Honestly, give it another go. It's free for now. I played at release and hated it. Gave it another go over the past week or two and love it, it's how Darkfall should be, it like 10x better version of Darkfall, with a pop to back it up! DND has been dead for time, with only action once every few weeks because of the SHIT village system in DND!

The sieges I've been involved with over this last week, have been 100x more fun than any DND siege. Once you get a taste of ROA, you can't bring yourself to log on DND again.

If you guys still enjoy pve in DND, then fine, carry on playing. But if you like PVP, there is only one server to play!

No one is pve'ing. The only thing we do are some grp duel sessions once a week :/ Mostly play lol or other games now.

I bet it would be fun joining those sieges even tho i dont enjoy the general gameplay feel much but those timers... checking clan empires  i cant see a single recent siege before midnight (only checked largest clans). Most are between 2-5am our time. There is no way i could have joined any of those anyway.

And if you cant join sieges i dont think roa is any different from current dnd. Played a week in alfar lands and saw a total of 3 players all in shoal. Actually went out of alfarlands and captured a few villages in primetime over there.... no one showed up and i got like 200g for each xD Besides that my clan doesnt want to play it and i dont feel like playing with strangers :P

The only cool thing is how easy it is to get game time tokens... farmed and sold some q3-q5 skinning stuff while leveling and got around 160k gold and one token is only 90k.

I never understood why people complained about extra casts/swings with the queue system. I mean as long as your previous action isnt finished, you can always overrite the queued action with another one. Cant say i ever did any extra casts, arrows or swings ever.
Well obviously they complain about it because it does happen, if it didn't happen they wouldn't complain about it.

We had around 50 different players since launch and not a single one ever complained about that. Maybe its an issue that happens with a higher ping? Dunno

BPG does a number of things better, but they lean hard towards severe unprofessional "stunts" like public in-fighting. That's not to say Ub3rgames is a good example, they live so far with their heads up their own arses that they had to ask us if we were trolling when we expressed frustration regarding their lack of communication.

But I just cannot get myself to play RoA however. High ping, no melee due to said ping, ray spam, no weapon bar so you got to macro that functionality, limited or no action queueing (I cant get solid info on this one), repetitive combat system, a removal of alignment of any relevant sort, etc.

And AFAIK just like New Dawn they haven't really added ground breaking new content pieces or systems which change the way you play the game on a daily basis (for the better). Correct me if I am missing major content pieces and systems here.

You do not need a macro at all for RoA, you can pretty much put all skills / spells on one key and pick first available, so you can have for example the v key do disable parry with every weapon and also have spells on it.

Also I hate the action queue system in DnD I occasionally do an extra swing / bow shot / spell because of it, I would love for an option to disable it.

You can put everything in one slot but you cant fucking draw a staff while selecting a spell. No, every damn fucking time you gotta press that staff key over and over again. I found some workaround via first available option. Works better than burst for that purpose but you still have to double press hotkeys when not having a staff equiped. Its freaking annoying. And what you gonna do when you have to switch a staff... switch it on EVERY hotkey??... Best solution would propably be a macro.
And then you got that weird delay between everything and have to wait for your character to lower their hands to do another action... eh yea, no queue either, so you still got ping delay after animation delay.... and btw while your character is lowering his hands you cant jump cause reasons.

Playing roa i noticed soo many small things that just ruin the gameplay experience for me... like no decent autosorting, no dropping stuff in bags without having to open them. Chat being overall broken and always selecting non existent tabs after every teleport for no apparent reason. And whats with those millions of trash items in every fucking grave, god damn its annoying accidently looting them, opening paperdoll again since it is closing all the time (yea dunno why either), having to open lootbag and trashing all that crap.... and whats up with those scrolls, essence crap, etc if i can max a school with 600 reagents in 30mins? Oh yea, cant move spells from one hotbar slot to another either. And opening the map makes my game freeze for a sec, even with everything diabled....


You can say whatever you want to ubergames current non existent presence. But you cant deny they did a pretty damn good job laying the groundwork. Now if they ever continue patching....
yea jk its prop over.

I PvE'd for about 10 minutes yesterday.
I'm currently ranked 43 on the server.

By my reckoning 100,000 points of ranking is 30 minutes of PvE.
10 people > 100,000 points at the moment.
1 person > 200,000 points.


That statement is very wrong. And the daily statistics are not actually daily. 10k in 30mins farming non stop yellow mobs is more likely.
When i was still activly pveing, i could easily farm orange mobs for hours and get nowhere near the 100k mark.

Lists are fucked. Wolf-Orc have a guy listed on the "daily" who race changed weeks ago.

They give a fake impression there is a population behind them, there isn't.

It has nothing to do with a ''fake'' population. The race change just never got updated on those lists. Only the player race icon but those characters never got sorted in the right category.

General Discussion / Re: Whatever happens, thanks Ub3r
Shut up Hyld you fucking loser.
They lie to you and spit in your face and you thank them like a little slut getting daddys load.

Lol. It's entertaining really how people in this community brainwash themselves into mindless fan-drones. It's really these people that got us in this position to begin with, yes-manning and allowing such behavior from them in the first place. It's some form of comforting, telling themselves that everything will be alright just as long as we keep a positive attitude and support Ub3r no matter what! /unicorn_rainbows

Fuckin carebears bunching up to cuddle each other as always. This time they ended up strangling each other by hugging too tight.

The irony. What yes-men? You talking about that vocal majority of 5 yes-men? Stop cuddling with your retard buddies and let this game die in peace.


Btw, i am still gonna play dnd to the end, cause why not? What else is there to play? Nothing, exactly.
Rather do some solo pve and the occasional vcp wipe than play some of those other ''fun'' games.  And who knows, maybe we'll get a patch next year or something but i dont rly care at this point anymore. Whatever will happen, will happen.
Game is still live, play it now or never.

Im on a crusade to keep money out of lieing shitbags hands. If my posts kept 1 person from buying this game it was worth it.

If my posts have people so affected that they don't want to play a game they say they love and is amazeballs then perhaps it isn't as good as they think?

Plus the forums are my homepage it takes seconds for me to read. every time I open my browser I get to see that @Ub3rgames and @Ub3r-Communication  haven't posted any updates, patches or vacation pictures.

Suggestions / low level gear and non mastery crafting
Lets be honest here. The moment a new guy joins a half decent clan, he will never ever wear something below studded/plate/bone/extra level again. Having low level gear might make sense in your average game with a normal level system and specific areas bound to a set level range but in darkfall? Doesnt make much sense in my eyes.

So heres my suggestion! Equalize all non mastery armors and weapons! Make it possible to craft most of them at level 25 and increase non mastery armor and weapon crafts skillgain dramatically.
Some obvious beginners gear (current level 0 crafts) could be increased to have r20/30 stats. Everything above 25 would be r40 level. Of course crafting costs have to be adjusted accordingly.

That would make aquiring decent gear for your average newbie or solo player more easily and would give people a lot more options to customize their characters early on with mixes of different armors (yay fashionfall!).
