It’s a day of WTF’s around here. If the EA Bioware/Mythic news wasn’t bad enough, Aventurine decided to drop this bomb on us:
“On the American server: The American server will launch on July 7th. Characters from the European server can be cloned and moved without their possessions 3 months after the American launch. Certain restrictions and charges will apply, to be announced at a later date. In the meanwhile if you want to play on the American server at launch you need to buy the American Darkfall client.” – Tasos
Then Tasos clarified with this:
“Clarification: American players wanting to clone and transfer their characters do not have to buy another client. Everyone else needs to buy the American Darkfall client to play on the American server.” – Tasos
Basically, if you want to play on the brand new American servers when they launch then you have to buy a new client. If you want to TRANSFER (3 months after the servers launch!) then you don’t have to pay. Sneaky, underhanded, and the end. I’ll pass. I’m not going to rebuy this game all over again. I had plans to try and revive the fun this summer and play with some friends but there is just no way.
Seriously, if anyone is still playing Darkfall this was the best possible way to drive them away.
