I know lots of other people have said this already, but I've been playing DF for years. I like it the way it is. I like being able to play on my own, instead of having to wait for someone else to help me with all the bosses. I like the art as it is, always have, always will, so I think we should keep it the same. DF is my favorite game out there and I like it just the way it is.

How much longer is this poll going to last? I mean people are still voting, and we already know which won.

If number 1 doesn't pass, everyone prepare for MechDragonDuelQuest Worlds :P

If that actually becomes a new name for a new game... Don't blame me.

To be honest, I'd prefer DragonFable to stay the same. It's gotten my attention over the past 2 or 3 years just fine, I don't want it to change.

And I definitely don't want it to become another AQWorlds. Edit: Or 3D for that matter.

keep it as it is, i think if oyu use the make it into a mmo with a monthly subscription i will just quit completely. although if you are going to add some thing maybe more voice acting and possibly an online option in which you can battle monsters with other online players in a team

If DragonFable does revamp the engines, one thing i would love to see is a necromancer re-vamp. I was fairly disappointing with this armor, though i may of had my expectations too high. One thing I'd like to see is necromancer being able to summon undead into the guest slots during battle, and each turn when they attack, they take up the users mana. different skills summoning different types of undead and such. That would be interesting to me. Changes like that to make each class a bit more unique so that it can stand out from the others.

Personally, I think more voice acting and flash-movie cutscenes would be fantastic, and Epicduel gameplay in the Aeris Battlespire ONLY would work well too. But a DF MMO? HELL no. DF/MQ mash-up? The same. 3D graphics? They'd have to be extremely impressive, and you'd have to be able to turn the 3d on and off so weaker graphics cards can still run it. But otherwise, don't change Dragonfable. Seriously. Just don't go there.

The main reason you don't just change a game upside down is, your audience has already been "naturally selected". The players who stick around and play right now do so because they like the game how it is. Any poll you make talking about major changes like some of those mentioned is necessarily going to end up with a vast majority of "keep the game as it is!"

You can change a game upside down, but prepare for risky times because the audience is gonna shift heavily and be "naturally selected" again from almost scratch. Sooo, what should be done in this case is bring A LOT more people than the current amount of monthly new comers. (because if you don't, you're going to have a smaller audience in the end)

So I guess, with good enough advertising and marketing, and with changes planned well enough, you could do anything to DF. Except for the issue of long time players who were loyal to DF and AE and will feel screwed. If respecting your current player base is important, the only thing to do is then to keep DF as is and build a new game.

(developing PvP and guilds isn't major change technically, it's long planned features that keep being pushing back and back. players who don't like PvP nor guilds won't mind if they're developed, though they might mind that there are fewer storyline releases during those times)

Please keep it the same. It would be interesting to see what the 3D version would look like, but all the other options are not favorable in my opinion. I understand how AE would want to grow or mature a game so it doesn't become stagnant but there are already MMOs with AQW and HS and ED's engine is just not a very pretty thing right now. Who knows how long it'll take to make it work better than it's running at the moment. If you're looking for ways to keep things updated or new or "fresh" in DF, I'd say go with adding new features to the current engine or the 3D route but don't morph it into the style of any of the other games. Those other games were created for that reason, to fill some sort of idea gap y'all thought needed to be filled. Completely redoing this game that fans have invested years of time in would be a travesty.

If done right, 3D could make DF truely epic, which is something that has been lacking for a while in AE games.
I can see it now, Grand vistas of sky-scraping mountain ranges looming towards you as you tread the golden fields or scorched wastes of Lore, before plunging deep underground where the caverns encircle you and your light only serves to cast gigantic shadows of rocks and crumbling ruins, while undefinable things and beings scuttle around just behind...

Failing that just keep it as it is :P If it were an MMO the story wouldn't feel so personal, thus ruining the experience (not to mention causing lag), and if it were a mix between DF & MQ... well... that'd just give us Final Fantasy DF, which would cause a fountain of deep, black hatred to form in my soul for this game and anyone who helped that nightmare to become reality.... :3

the only changes I'd make is either being able to heal allies with the magic circles like you do yourself, I know I've seen done in one mission, and then fell by the wayside, and/or adding your friends characters to your party like we were able to do during the fire war, but in a more permenant capacity, that way you could play with your friends but not really. I love the game the way it is now, keep it the same as much as possible with only minor updates and bug changes, keep up the good work guys.

I like Dragonfable just the way it is. So, no changes for my vote.

Dragonfable is a great game with a wonderful storyline, but people are being way to hasty to say they want absolutely no change whatsoever. The game is quite good as is but there is always room for improvement, the pvp aspect itself has always been one of the least appealing parts of the game and could use a few major improvements. Now some other users such as Dracelix, a member of the games community that many are saying they quote "Love the most about the game" have been completely overlooked for the most part despite some great ideas they've given. Maybe converting to a full mmo would be a bad idea, I for one agree with this, but this is great chance to improve some of the parts of the game that are dragging the rest down and instead of instantly saying you want NOTHING to change, you could instead give some suggestions to make the game even better.

Just saying

For the love of Xan, leave it as is. Although, I think it would be cool to have at least one quest in 3D, maybe Cysero's experiment gone wrong. Your character becomes 3D, saying "OMG, I've gotten so fat."

Wouldn't the DragonFable Team have to change the whole game script for that to happen, though?

@BladeEdgeE: You're stuck in your own reasoning. Nobody say they want "NOTHING to change" nor do they say they want "absolutely no change whatsoever". You're preaching the choir man

the only things that have really been said is that of the options given, the most liked is the first, everyone has things they'd like changed it's just the options given are such extreme changes as to be unappealing to the masses.

I say keep as is! I LOVE Dragonfable. The only thing I could see would be having major events from Adventure Quest come into play. I don't like the graphics of Adventure Quest or the inability to pick gender so I like Dragonfable. Plus I LOVE the story line. And 3D might be cool but I still would like it to stay the same. YAY!
