Why New Dawn?

Postby Hytek » Sun Oct 23, 2016 1:14 pm

Just out of curiosity, why New Dawn over Rise of Agon?

Originally two reasons:

1. The dev team's vision for the game is what Darkfall always should've been: a massive game where PvP wasn't the only thing left to do once you max out, with true region control and a meaningful economy.

2. Ub3rgames has also - from day 1 - been discussing every single one of their actual and proposed changes for the game. It's clear from those discussions that they know the game inside out, upside down and back to front. And their approach to communication is totally professional - calmly responding to even the most toxic rants. (And repeating things over and over to each new player that comes to the forums and asks the same damn question!). They also don't delete posts that are critical of what their plans are - it shows they're not afraid to defend their vision.

We looked at this and compared it to Rise of Agon's approach. Even thought RoA is patching frequently now, the deep impression we're left with is of a dev team who don't have an endgoal in sight. They don't have a clear mission with what they want to do with the game. And their communication is miserable. The devs there tend either to ignore or respond waspishly to any critique of the game. And deleting of posts on their forums is very, very common.

Those were the two original reasons - and we've seen no change from RoA or DnD to change our view yet.

Sounds cool. I am considering giving it a try at final release when no more wipes are done. Darkfall is hands down the best pvp game ever made so seeing it being taken into the right hands and care is a big welcome.
