They changed how the Blade of the Darkmoon and Darkwraith invasions work so now Darkmoons can no longer invade downwards, and Darkwraiths can no longer invade upwards. Now the Darkmoon and Darkwraiths have the same ranges. Because you can't invade in either covenant if the target has had their boss killed, there is absoutely no reason to join the Darkmoons. These changes made Darkmoons, which were already frustratingly hard to find matches for in the original game, completely dead.

The entire point of unlimited downward invasions in Darkmoon was to invade experienced PvPers and twinks who would attack lower level players. The changes make Darkmoon absolutely pointless and and even more dead than in the original. The change to the Darkwraiths that doesn't allow you to invade upwards now no longer punishes lower level Darkwraiths by forcing them to fight high level players.

The entire appeal of this remaster was to have working mulitplayer and they've completely destroyed the multiplayer dynamics that made the covenants unique in the original. The main thing I was looking forward to when I bought this has been destroyed.




The issues in my original review were fixed but it's absurd they were even a problem in the first place. Here is the original text of my review for posterity:

{{"Fatal Error: The system does not meet the minimum memory requirements to run the application"

I have 20GB of RAM and am well over the minimum specs thanks. Seems like a good number of people having this problem and no fix has been found.

Edit: Finally got it working. Requires a bunch of crap that you should never have to do and the game runs perfectly fine now. The Negative review stays because as it is, this game is just a $20 patch that does nothing. If you wanna play some revived mutiplayer for a while, maybe you should spend the $20, but the reality is this game should have been free for owners of the Prepare to Die Edition. They barely updaded anything and introduced a bunch of bugs.}}
