More information on the American server will be available in a few days.

Darkfall will launch a massive free expansion update the first week of July, something that the Darkfall team has been working on for a while now. This expansion includes major new features and major content, PvE, and PvP updates.

In the last few patches we had implemented several major optimizations making it possible to support even larger battles and sieges and more concurrent users than ever before. As a result, massive battles now run smoother than ever. Weve seen some of the largest and the highest frequency of massive battles this past month, which has helped us find even more ways to optimize the Darkfall experience.

As a result of these optimizations weve also been able to keep sales open most of the time. Were still being careful because Darkfall resubscription rates remain very high even though this is a time for exams and/or vacations. Its still difficult to buy Darkfall but we hope that after the US servers have launched it will be easier for new players to learn about and to buy Darkfall.

To that effect, a new site is coming, along with new forums for Darkfall players only. These forums will be readable by the public and only players with active accounts will be able to post in them. The current public forums will remain active for anyone to post in, but moderation will be stronger. This because were getting people from other communities with the sole intention of disrupting our forums. The Darkfall community has always been a source of good feedback, constructive criticism, and inspiration for the Darkfall developers and we'll keep it that way by doing away with the non-constructive elements.

Our next major patch will be included in the Darkfall expansion the first week of July.

Thank you for reading
The Darkfall Team

Clarification Post Replied in same source from Tasos:

Everyone else needs to buy the American Darkfall client to play on the American server. The European rights and the American rights to Darkfall do not belong to the same company, therefore you cannot freely transfer between the two territories, as is the case with most MMORPGs. Our offer of character cloning / transfer to American players is because we had said that we would try to accommodate them should they want to start playing on the European server.


How do you feel? What now?

Does this mean that I, as a European, have to buy the new client and don't have any chance of transfer/cloning?

If this is the case, I don't think I'm gonna move to the NA server. I don't wanna spend more money on this game, to start all over again, unless they make the grind A LOT faster. If I can transfer for a reasonable price, I might consider it.


Kind regards

You can transfer after 3 months without any possessions and restrictions/CHARGES apply, it is not necessary to buy the new client if you want to wait and transfer. Keep in mind that they will be implementing the soft cap in this release. Who knows what that will do to transferred characters.

For myself, I refuse to pay for the client again in order to start fresh on the NA server.
My subscription is already canceled. Unless AV changes their ways, I will be looking for either a different game. Or staying on EU-1 server. I haven't decided yet
