EverQuest killer incoming
Darkfall: Unholy Wars is terrible. After years of begging, apparently AV is working towards bringing back DFO. Developers Axilmar and Mass have stated the biggest issue with bringing back DFO would be the transference of account information, login information, etc, which would take a month or two. Likewise, a DFO emulator is making substantial gains, so either way, we might see a return of the original incarnation of Darkfall within the next 6 months or so. I'll update the thread with relevant links, quotes, etc this evening, if anybody is as interested as I.
reddit thread where some of the devs first spoke of it, talk of a DFO kickstarter among other things. Upvote if you'd like DFO to be brought back (read first). : Darkfall

So Action RPG combat with EQ1 graphics that was released in 2009. Which was then cancelled with a month's notice in 2012 in order to boost a new version that subsequently bombed. That sound about right?
I enjoyed Dark Fall. Had loads of fun wandering around the world. Really gave a sense of fear that at any moment you could be ganked and lose all your shit. Also the fact that it wasn't a gear grind was a nice change. Upgrades were far and inbetween for a casual player.
The only fear is the company running away with your money.
That's kind of misleading. It has to do with free to play microtransactions or DLC purchases, not subscription fees or box sales. And it's from 2013, before xpacs and what have you. The fact that Hearthstone isn't on there means it is obviously pretty lacking, because that's a goddamn cash cow these days, something like 800m in 2014. Graphics had nothing to do with the shitty turnout (sub 100k at best) for Darkfall; it was a lot of silly technical issues and glaring design flaws that put it firmly into niche (and unprofitable niche at that) gaming. Not shitting on anyone who enjoyed it! But there was a lot more going on than just the graphics engine with DF.

additionally, AV is still going over the logistics of an official DFO relaunch regarding their billing portal etc, and said that will take about 2 months (read as: 6+)

Our first estimation is around 4 months.

they're not even selling DFO, they're licensing it.

These guys can hardly even call themselves professionals. Within the last 6 months or so, Aventurine's support site went down for something like a month, their ssl certificate expired and nobody could use their website for maybe a week, and their devs just say whatever the fuck they want. I might even be happy to play dfuw if it weren't developed by assholes.
I hope they also use the tagline "Become one of the Fallen"
