    Question: What would you guys say to someone who is interested in the ideas of the game, but hesitant to buy it due to rumors of the game being a grind/grief/gank fest, dead, poorly managed, only enjoyable for pvpers, dated (graphics, UI, etc.), don't understand why there's been so many Darkfalls or any of the other critiques that are brought up when Darkfall is brought up around the Internet?

    Obviously, the answers not for me and I guess this is probably a couple questions combined into one, but I think the answer(s) is important to be able to point to when people, especially interested newbies, make comments or ask questions related to any of these criticisms.

    Also, you guys should try to get sites like MMORPG.com to post an article about the stream and link to this thread, and/or make their own thread. Along with the various gaming subreddits.

    What is there to do for people that aren't as interested in picking pvp fights, roaming, deathmatching, etc?

    Is there a chance of an in game lottery system? Players could purchase tickets and a draw would take place daily, I think it would be really fun!

    Are you going to do a profit sharing with twitch streamers who get people to sub? Like say 3.00 per person a twitch streamer brings in, might be worth it for all sides.

    Would you rather fight 100 duck sized horses or 1 horse sized duck?

    I'm more interested in how much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? Or at the very least if a man is in a forest alone without his wife around is he still wrong?

    What design challenges do you face with having players from various parts around the world and not just the US?

    Which new features are you most excited about, and how do they address the concerns of people who have tried Darkfall and quit?

    Are there any plans for some kind of mentor/guide system for players who want to help out newcomers? Tibia, for example, has the "tutor" system for the help channel.

    question: would you consider taking the glaive (r40 polearm) and switching its rank with either the imperial halberd (r70) or the taelis (r50)

    it looks so much cooler than these 2 and it'd be awesome if it was a pvp viable option past the first 2 weeks of launch.

    I'd literally do anything for this change. ANYTHING

    What kind's of things do you plan to add in order to make Darkfall feel more like a living world? Is this something that is part of BPG's vision for the future of DF?

    Will we be able to bind multiple skills to one key on launch or soon after? Currently I have to use a macro have skills and mount leans on Q/E. The same goes for parry and rays on right click.

    What has been done in terms of player retention? Whats going to stop bank staring/city camping/friendly duels only from happening after a few months?

    New content will be released monthly, if that's not good enough then feel free to stay in your city all you want.

    Follow up on this, what kind of content, specifically, will be introduced? Any time table you can share? Are we talking about dungeons, scripted events, hotspots?
