Didn't See a DFO thread, Lets fix that.
Also the Facebook page released some new video introducing some characters and the title was "CBT is around the corner"
Possible announcement soon?
Maybe in the next 2 days?
>No Female Slayers
Not a single fuck was given that day.
Sure, but we won't have a lot of the other second awakenings. For a long time, if we're actually going to be stuck with the D-day patch.
I'm sure you already know, but that patch came out three years ago. Really hoping the 'introduction' video isn't all we're going to be getting in terms of characters.
>Everybodys reaction when they just use the nexon client again
I don't know why everyone is using "Three years behind" as if that's the same amount of time it'll take them to push out the content to us.
Even if that's where we're starting I'm sure we'll be getting a year of content every couple months since they can just toss it at us whenever they feel like people want new stuff.
Of course, but remember that they completely redid Nexon NA's entire engine and jumped us years forwards in like what, 8 months was it?.
From here on it's just going to be almost entirely translation work which is miniscule work compared to how long it took to originally produce it.
I wouldn't be upset at all about starting off behind since as far as I'm concerned it'd still be new content to me every time we get something added and will do a lot of good extending the length of the game.
I think it'll be far more interesting than just instantly starting off at the top and then waiting several months before anything big happens, especially when most of that stuff no one will even be doing for a good long while at the start of launch.
Also, CBT is only temporary and will be going down again after a couple weeks and who on earth knows where we'll actually end up again at the full proper launch.
It's more that we were teased with much more recent content.
Knight, F. Slayer, etc. and we may not even be getting those things for quite a while.
>they can just toss it at us whenever they feel like people want new stuff.
Or they can just give it to us and not try to cock tease their players who've been patiently waiting. This is the kind of thing that kills games before they even have a chance to find their footing. Holding back content is stupid.
Making it this way, 3 years of content away, leaves space to events and update hypes, they know a lot of people stopped playing when nexon fucked up and never tried to play cdnf or kdnf, if they just translate kdnf and throw at us people that stopped playing will have to wait months for new content and with nothing to give to the played and the events will not be as good, they are doing the right thing giving it the new game treatment instead of the kdnf translated version treatment.
Not him but it polarized the community cause it streamlined a huge amount of the game's early content. It also aborted the story and changed the OST, those are the main reasons I can think of that people don't like it.
Completely revamped almost everything below level 55 and changed it entirely. Some people like it, some people hate it, same stuff that always happens when things get changed.
One of the best ways to DC your party
Shit was hilarious. The best was when I did it on first spine boss.
I loved playing brawler in general because I always managed to mount enemies at the same time as my friend playing grap.
That includes spiral and cyclone suplex.
>will be released again
it's been out, and anyone can play it. It's not like 5 years ago when arad or KDNF were your only choices, and arad had an IP ban on half of the western hemisphere and KDNF required a KSSN (now they need an i-pin which is even fucking worse, but that's not the point).
CDNF is free for anyone to download and play. If you've seriously been waiting since the closing of the nexon NA servers just for this, you've been wasting your fucking time. Don't get your hopes up for this to be a successful server. The miniscule amount of facebook likes they got during that end-of-year campaign, then a good 60% of those being removed because they were bot accounts is a prime example. The game will be filled week 1, then empty out as people get bored, or sick of the fatigue system, or decide it's not worth re-doing all the content when they have capped characters on other servers, or any number of reasons.
It happened with the nexon NA servers, it'll happen here.
Assuming you time it right both grabs happen at the same time, so the brawl gets flung around with the enemies while still executing mount, as far as I could tell, damage from both still applied just the same just with the hilarious effect of flying around while punching. Also in the case of cyclone suplex you get shockwaves on top of shockwaves.
My problem, with CDNF is that I can't understand anything.
Boy someone sure has been desperate to get more English speaking players on CDnF lately, aren't there places more gullible than this that you could be spending your time on instead?
I play arad, motherfucker. I don't want that shitty malware on my PC.
My point is that people are acting like the game's been gone for years and years when it's been in perfectly playable shape. You're hyping it up to get fucking shut down in a couple months. If it doesn't happen, good for you, but I don't see any way the game survives through the year, short of them starting a marketing campaign in the next few weeks to actually get players instead of a couple thousand people spamming facebook accounts on the game.
CDNF turns a lot of people off because they can't read shit and you gotta jump through hoops to sign up. Having a version that people can just jump in and play and easily understand makes it a lot easier to get people into it and playing who may not normally do so. Facebook likes during a wiped alpha running an old-ass version of the game are not a particularly good indication of this.
Comparing it to NexonUS's version isn't particularly useful either becuase back then we had none of the QoL changes that came with Metastasis, or shit like free skill resets. Things that would draw people in (or back) who may not have tried it a couple years ago.
It could certainly still fail, especially if Neople fails to keep up with content or hackers run rampant, but it's way too early to make that call.
I see your point as heartfelt as it is but at the end of the day the Chinese version is just that, Chinese.
The game is getting released in English and that is what most people in general are looking forward to. While it may not be 100% up to date, it will be made available to a large sum of people in which everyone is looking forward to.
While I can't speak for the success of the game going forward and if it fails(to bad I guess). It does little good to be so anal about the game's progress down the line. We'll have to wait and see.
We need to wait for Neople
First video showed Metastasis but the class video didn't show all classes that were available in Metastasis
They told us nothing about their progress because their dev team does not want to say anything yet for some reason
No, it's metastasis.
It's a thing with games that are more than 10 years old and the primary userbase bitches that things feel like they're fucking 10 years old. So they fix it. If you don't like it you're free to fuck off and not play. That's the philosophy of the devs anyway, and I'm inclined to agree.
It generally tends to happen to most things that were born in an era that tolerates different things but survived long enough to no longer be deemed acceptable by most normal people in modern games.
AKA: Old games are too hard so people bitch about it and they have to make things easier.
Would you prefer if the global release failed?
Don't get me wrong, I dislike the general user base for DFO and the clamering autis that it attracts. But I see nothing wrong in the game getting a larger release.
I'm not saying it should fail, just that it's gonna. They're probably doing this out of neople funds that would otherwise go to cyphers or GITS online or DNF updates. And if it's not profitable immediately I imagine it will be shut down. There's little doubt in my mind that the game will be low population from the get-go because that's how it was in the first CBT. Obviously CBTs won't be packed but there were so few people in the CBT last year.
I love DNF, I played on every server at one point or another. But the english server was the least interested, and this new one probably won't be different, especially if their primary userbase comes from reddit and /v/.
>I love DnF
And then you actively go out of your way to try and discourage people and reduce playercounts.
Alright bud, keep on doin what you're doin, you're saving the game you love.
That's a fair point I guess.
I'm pretty worried for the long time success too.
Especially if the majority of the player base is comprised of bots and gold sellers like during Alpha.
Seeing that really turned my stomach.
>No Female Slayer
All of my hype is dead now
>People caring about "muh userbase" and not just playing with a decent guild/friends
I know the game needs users to survive but no reason you should let a bunch of kids and BRs should drag down your fun.
No idea, anything anyone could say right now would be pure speculation.
It's not hopeless though, any sane person would realize how amazing business it would be to do events for old avatar sets.
more importantly, cross promotional avatars when?
what avatar of a vidya character you want to see in DFO?
for me it would be pic related for F.Slayers
>Vergil, Ragna and Sol Badguy M. Slayers
>Jin Kisarsgi and Ky kisike F. Slayer
>Dante M. Gunner
>Sakura F. Fighter
>Hwoarang M. Fighter
>take your pick of anime waifu for Knight
>tfw you rocked the classic Priest avas until the end of DFO but now your character is gone and they'll never exist again
Then again, Neople's been pretty cool about communicating, I bet if we shake them down enough they'll do an event or something
In KDNF they have the classic priest avatars for sale in the Mileage Shop, but they're not permanent avatars. The Milage Shop also isn't a permanent thing, it's an event that comes and goes so it wouldn't be available 24/7.
>ON OUR NEW PAGE
>AROUND THE CORNER
Well since they can't read or write english better than the average 5th grader i'm betting they don't know "around the corner" usually means a short period like a week.
So i'm sticking with march 31st 11:59 hawaiian standard time.
>beta opens on march 30th
>only open for 12 hours
>full release date revealed
>DFO goes global on march 31st, 2016
>devs say around the corner
>also confirmed that CBT is 1-2 weeks only
>CBT is supposed to be in march
huge probability of it being live next week? the official launch might be longer though. but I do hope we get official launch right after CBT
holy fuck what's with the shilling here? witholding content is exactly what ruined the game when nexon was mismanaging it. remember when we had to wait months just for the patch that unfucked priests? there's no reason to ration content when it's still being produced.
Never played DFO, could someone give me list what characters/classes will be available on release?
I watched char introduction, but heard some newest classes like shadow dancer won't be available.
There is a difference in not uploading at all to leaving some things out to release later, i'm gonna repeat it again, if they don't do this we'll not have events for new content, we'll have to wait months until something new comes out in kdnf, they are releasing the global version of the game, for people that never played or played until DFO shutdown, not a translated version for people that play on cdnf/kdnf. There is nothing wrong in giving the game some life for people to grow giving them new content slowly until it catchs up with the other servers.
Exorcist has two different builds that are effectively entirely different classes in PvE but a more varied hybrid in PvP.
You can either slap on an axe and go physical which is slow, big room wiping hits with big numbers or you can go magical which involves lots and lots of crowd control, zoning and persistent placed AoEs.
The rest of the priest subclasses are lightyears apart from each other and can't really be grouped together at all.
Only things on this page not guaranteed to be in are: All the female slayer subclasses (They may or may not be in, we don't know yet)
Both knight classes
Thief's kunoichi and shadow dancer classes.
Everything else will be available day one of CBT.
Ah, okay. The Exorcist sounds pretty fun. I'll probably be playing the game with a mate, is there any two classes that synergise especially well with each other?
How laggy is it going to be in Australia? Is lag a big issue for DFO or not so much?
The only real notable class combos are any good holding class (Things like grapplers, dark templar, asura, witch, berserker, glacial master) or party buff class (Soul bender, crusader, nen master, monk to a small extent) matched up with pretty much any other class that just exclusively does damage.
As far as exorcist goes soul bender would go wonderfully with a magic build and any of the mentioned above would do well with either type.
I don't think there is a skill for aerial recovery yet that you can BUY.
He meant peer to peer.
And yes, it is. So if you're an aussie playing with aussie buds it's all good but things are gonna be dicey hooking up with randoms if your net's not good.
PvE will be fine and PvP can generally get by with a bit of lag but things can definitely get unplayable on both sides if it really goes to shit.
He's right to a degree. People behave much differently when their actual name and photo are plastered on their posts (usually) than they would with a screen name or as anonymous.
there are basically 5 communities right now.
The casuals = facebook
The hardcores, which are divided in 3
DFO core (serious)
DFO nexus (more easy going)
DFO reddit (kinda dead, but kinda there)
DFO core and nexus are both surprisingly fine, Core for example has a a great organized database of all the lore, and nexus has some very good class guides to follow.
and finally you have the last community which is us here in these threads.
from experience, and from lurking every of those forums, I think we are a really good community, as silly as that may sound, Ive met all kinds of interesting fans in these threads, specially some very dedicated lorefags, and people who actually know the state of arad, cDnF and kDnF, not to mention some american DFO veterans too.
You talk like the majority of any fanbase/userbase is not bad, if you care so much about it you would not be posting here or are you implying the majority of people of 4chan is not stupid?
Are you one of those people in the facebook community?
If so that would explain you being more defensive than you should.
And sorry if I got on your nerves a little. All I'm saying is the most visible of group of DFO is from facebook and I don't prefer them is all.
See, you are a asshole too, why are you saying other people are bad if you act like a idiot too?
No, i never posted on facebook and this is my first reply to you so i'm not being "defensive" about anything, i'm just saying everything has bad people in it, find a group of people that are not stupid or that you think are not stupid and go on with your life.
What is everyone going to do when DFOG finally releases?
I think I'll spend some money to make some money.
If I came off as passive-aggressive that was not my intention and for that I'm sorry.
My initial point was that from observing the facebook page, I do not prefer most of those who use it.
Not that the users are "idiots"
>People keep suggesting a shitty class like monk
>But not Male Grappler who is equally disabled
Male grappler recently got a rather dramatic overhaul and are nothing to scoff at anymore. They still toss shit all fucking over the place in parties but they're a force to be reckoned with while soloing.
Ignore the god-gear and just savor how fluidly all of their skills transition into each other, male grappler is a sexy beast now.
I know about the changes, that's why i'm gonna make one but i don't think we'll get it right now, i'm just sorry about my friends who will have to deal with it since f slayers will not be out.
this wait, knowing its so close, is the hardest wait of all
how can the third most successful MMO financially take so much to release new classes?
at the current pace, we will see dragon knight, m.mage new classes and all of 2nd awakenings by 2018 or even later.
they have increased in update speed in the last years however, but still.
>how can the third most successful MMO financially take so much to release new classes?
Because drawing animations, particles, effects. Knowing how they will affect PvP. Planning how to appeal to the playerbase. Bug testing takes a hefty amount of time.
I'd rather have Neople take time making quality classes than have another rushed class like Male Grappler was back then (The staff couldn't even believe how this class even got to the live server)
Well from what i've heard, Nexon NA doesn't want them using their DFO assets so they had to make a new client. If I remember correctly, blitz was exclusive to NA so the new client would be similar to KR's and have fatigue instead. Hopefully they'll change it at a later date.
I think I may have to main a M. grappler once these changes come to our client, because holy shit that was sick
Tbh i dont mind the Facebook part, itd attract alot of people, even tho itd be alot of little shits attracted too bit STILL, if it keeps dfo around im koo wit it.
I was HARDCORE into dfo back in the day, in the " juicyfruit" guild, seems alot in the guild were beast.
Hell i say if /v/ niggas are really ACTUALLY gonna plau, we make a guild
>if they don't do this we'll not have events for new content, we'll have to wait months until something new comes out in kdnf,
and how do you figure that's better than waiting months for them to decide we deserve content that already exists?
There's no way we'd ever have parity with korea anyway, localization takes took long, I don't know why people think that would ever be a thing
Anything is better than the shit we got with Nexon at this point
They don't need to but will probably be pressured into it by those people. I don't have a problem with it personally; it gives me an excuse to level up more than one character.
I don't know, i think it's better, more events, people play more, maybe even event avatars, more xp, items, events are always good. Also, that's how any international server works, they release it with less content than the original so people can play it slowly receiving new content regularly until they catch up with the original. But thats the thing, they need to release new content, a thing nexon NA never did.
>wanting to jump through incredibly small hoops, one of which is buying a korean cellphone
I would rather have some content held back while they test the system than have it all now and have the game fail hard.
>Were getting the REAL Anton raid
I'm sure glad we will never get to experience Northern shelter when it was fresh in korea.
it's still better to be behind only a few months or however long it takes to translate things than some arbitrary ammount and have to beg for content that's ready to go. there's literally no reason to ration out something that's still being produced.
I know it's a shitty game to compare with but cosmic break was only like a week behind when I played it years ago.
Clasess I'm considering:
Female Fighter (most likely Nen Master)
Female Ranger (no idea which subclass)
Glacial Master (is he cold edgelord?)
I'm most interested in info about differneces between female ranger subclasses.
>more events, people play more, maybe even event avatars
and where is that content coming from? unless the localization team is wasting resources making original content instead of localizing, anything we get is going to be from the korean version. it's better to get everything that's availible and wait for new stuff to be translated than have it arbitrarily rationed out to us.
>that's how any international server works
you mean how bottom tier localizers like nexon work. even world of tanks gets patches only a few days later than the russian server.
Summoner a best, but Battle Mage and Ashtarte are both great.
Neople makes sure that all other version are behind to maintain interest.
You're too optimistic to believe we will be two months behind Korea. Even the 2nd most populated China is 5 months late
They're not shit but they're not great either, just solidly smack dab in the middle of "Good enough if you're more skilled than your opponent" which is honestly where every class should be.
Ranger is stylish close range shooting / kicking, launcher is full-room covering long range artillery, mech is a pet class with robot armies and spitfire is autoattack spam and tacticool gadgets and grenades.
Raw damage with auto attacks and insane crits with revolvers, heavily gear dependant
Launchers: Bigass sub weapons with various effects that are fairly simple to learn and use with less gear dependance than the other classes
Bullet buffs or grenade tossing machines (At least the female versions are) with insane room clear
Build mechs as females and endless jihad robots as males that fight for you as well as turrets and stuff.
Vid is a female spitfire
and even 5 months is still better than being multiple major patches behind. if your main server is on 2.16.1 you don't put your new server on 1.59.4 just so you can advertize a major update ahead.
Way ahead of you.
This stamina system annoys me though.
It's really laggy, when you punch enemies and pickup drops there is a delay if you are not using a vpn, not really worth it. Also takes a while to download and log in.
Was literally in the middle of installing this shit then i saw this>>285747287 and now my desire to install this shit just died. I can't take the fucking wait.
>It's really laggy
I dunno, I live in Denmark and the best ping I can get is 350+ which isn't really laggy (the combat is smooth as always)
>Also takes a while to download and log in
Depends on your connection speed really, took me an hour to download all the game files with a 40/40 connection.
This is theoretical, mind you.
In my experience, these guilds die not because of drama but lack of interest. I know some people cite drama as the reason they leave, but in my experience it's mostly been people getting bored and moving on.
DFO is a good game, but I feel like the lack of fatigue hurt it in the long run. A daily limit 1) helps keeps interest, because you typically want to log in and use all of or as much of your fatigue as possible, and 2) helps keep you from burning out for obvious reasons.
It probably also helps with the economy and stuff, but Nexon economies are always fucked so probably not as much as I'd hope.
All that said, I think a /v/ guild in DFO 2.0 could work as long as the person running it wasn't a fuckhead.
/v/ guild(s) in alpha was split into 3 or 4 ways. The guild leader for the 1st guild invited randoms cause he was advertising the guild via megaphone, which led to the creation of the 2nd guild. 3rd guild is for irc tards, and there's probably a 4th guild I don't know about.
>The update just before DFO shut down
>literally 3 years behind korea
you guys better hope this shit aint true
They did in fact remove it and replaced it with a revamped version of what the old PvP used to be like where levels, PvE gear and I believe avatars have an effect again.
It's dramatically more balanced and less impactful than it used to be though and you can still earn PvP gear through PvP'ng which is mostly on par with PvE gear but several fold easier to obtain.
Basically it just means that heavy PvE'rs can jump straight into PvP and compete with their current gear without having to farm new equipment.
We already showed us Metastasis in their video
Maybe they will just include F.Salyer at full release
Why would they translate season 3 when they need a new translation for season 4?
>but I feel like the lack of fatigue hurt it in the long run.
I feel the exact opposite is true. If a game actively tries to tell me to stop playing, I'm not going to bother starting back up again
I for one will not forsake my main. It's still fun, we just need it to be balanced. These recent buffs are great and I'm happy as all hell to hear about them, but we still need just one more step forward and they'll be perfect to me. Just make all their skills %based and give them a good second awakening and I'll be ecstatic.
>female slayer wasnt even shown with the other characters
So what? Just because were getting metastasis doesn't mean we automatically have Female Slayer enabled n the game.
Neople can do whatever they want
