So word is, Darkfall UW is launching on the 16th of April!! I am super-excited, and thrilled it has finally come around!
The Prowess System was probably the single biggest change I introduced to DF:UW, so you can hate on me if you have a problem with it! It has been developed slightly further than my initial designs to incorporate more ‘levelling’ aspects than I had intended, but for something I had to sell EXTREMELY hard to the ‘powers that be’ in the first place I am thrilled to see they have taken it on to such an extent.
The system is designed not just to help in eliminating macro-ing and AFK-ing, but also to help players re-engage with the game, and to incentivise the behaviour that makes the game fun for everyone, and discourage the kind of crappy behaviour for which Darkfall had become famous.
