As MMOs and SimCity go, the DF:UW launch was surprisingly good. A lot of people were able to get in (not all, and you had to ‘work’ a little to get in), the server stayed up for hours during the first day, and when it went down it was back up shortly. No massive bugs or exploits have been noticed so far, and AV has released one patch already to address the cause for the one server crash.
Lag and such was the same as during beta (so none for me, some for others), which is a win considering the number of people online compared to the beta population. We’ll see how things go once DF:UW is available on Steam.
In-game OTG has claimed two hamlets so far, and many other clans also have holdings.
Feels good to be playing Darkfall again.
