Darkfall Set For Launch 80

Darkfall, a PvP-oriented MMORPG that was first announced in 2001, is finally in the process of going live. After dealing with some launch-day bugs, the Darkfall team reports that servers are going up, and they're processing pre-orders to get players in the game. MMOCrunch has an in-depth write-up from the end of the beta, saying that the game is still "rough around the edges," but also that the team has created a "solid framework of an MMO that offers a unique experience that the genre has not seen in quite some time." Ten Ton Hammer had a similar reaction, tempering criticism with praise for the lack of hand-holding.

    Oh, if only... If only.

    I know everyone has their own reasons for things they love/hate about a game, but frankly, if WoW ever completely got rid of PVP, well, it just couldn't happen soon enough for me. I'd love to see the hardcore WoW PVP asshats all go find a game where they can generally amuse themselves by being twelve year old pricks to each other and leave me the hell alone. /rant

    whew, sorry.

    (Yes, I play on PVE servers, but you are sometimes forced into it. Some players who want to be world-pvp jerks but their mommies won't give them the $25 to transfer to a PvP server (now that they safely got to level cap), and they seem to excel at finding creative ways to flag themselves pvp at just the right time/place that even though you had no intention of it, you get flagged.)
