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.
Started to patch last night. Failed sometime overnight. Restarted this morning. I’m guessing at the rate I’m going, I’ll get in some time next week. XD
Ready to admit DF:UW is a failure yet?
Excellent! I look forward to new stories from Darkfall.
Took me a few tries, and I had to download the torrent, but I finally got in. I am concerned that the launch was considered such a success when I had to use a torrent and download a third party torrent downloader to get the install package. The tutorial actually works now as opposed to the first ‘launch’ thoguh, and I am looking forward to trying this game out.
I purchased the game during beta, and I’m trying to update my lobby so it can patch the game.
Thing is, the lobby won’t download, and the Account management service keeps failing to load. :(
Any ideas with getting updated properly?
You are trying to patch the beta client right?
I would suggest deleting everything, downloading the torrent file linked on the official forums, and letting that patch itself.
Ah. Copy that. Thanks!
LOL. For some reason, neither the forums or the account system are loading for me. either a ton of people are trying to buy the game, or they’re patching stuff?
Forums are working for me.

Thanks Syncaine! Appreciate the links. :D
