Sounds interesting. However it will fail just like every other MMORPG that is not WoW.

Roll all that up and you'll find that MMOs CANNOT be casual. I have NO fucking clue how Blizzard got people to pay 15 a month and play a game on a computer when these people don't know what a "browser" is or have played jack shit for games. But yet every company keeps trying to create a MMO that invites casuals since it's the only way to be successful. Catering to the hardcore crowd alone with all the crazy costs of an MMO makes no sense. That's why we will never see something like UO again.

Anarchy Online came pretty close to me. Out of all the MMORPGs that I have played, starting with Neverwinter Nights on AOL up to WoW. AO was (to me) the most fun I have ever had playing a MMO game. No grinds, could solo the whole game and more importantly every time I played it felt like I really progressed. Hell my alt barely even fought PvE or PvP. It was the bureaucrat class suit, sunglasses and briefcase decked out.

I keep trying new MMO's hoping to find that experience and enjoyment again. However everything is a copy of WoW because companies want to try and cash in (literally cash in) on what WoW so successful. I think early MMO's were different (like UO, AO and Planetside for example) because studios were trying to see what would hook people and trying new things. WoW basically ruined everything.

Darkfall is just a pvp game.

Mortal is a sandbox.

Alot of people who have played Mortal make their mind up about the game after less than even an hour playing. And the big problem with that, is that it doesnt hold your hand AT ALL. Even simple crafting can be confusing... but once you learn basic things you realize how great it can be. Your character starts out like a total gimp... you run outta stamina doing anything. But after a few days playing you can excel at alot of things. From what ive seen, people give up as soon as they cant go do "leet pvp and gank noobs" right away... regardless of the fact that Darkfall is a MASSIVE grind.

Different games though. I played a great deal of Darkfall... and I wouldnt say to play Darkfall instead of Mortal, or vice versa. They are different games. If you want a sandbox with awsome crafting and a non-hand holding approach to EVERYTHING, then Mortal would be the game to play.

I could go on and on about Mortal... I will say that it is the most fun Ive had with the genre since the first MMO I played, (UO). For those who still are crying that its "broken", then they are just confused with the lack of "hand holding" which to them makes it feel broken.
