Darkorbit.com — This game is just a cheap knockoff of EVE online
This website game is a SCAM.
Although it's advertised as a free-to-play game, everything about it is designed to either induce you to spend real money to protect yourself from in-game bullying from other players, or simply leave to create room for people who will.
I played this game for 2 months. The graphics are lousy. The content is lame. The plot is thin. The character development is cookie cutter or just plain non-existent. The in-game music is awful, nerve-wracking, and played on an endless loop (unless you figure out how to disable it).
The gameplay supposedly is centered around Player Versus Player interaction, but set up in such a way that new players are ALWAYS at a decided disadvantage. As a novice player you are limited to which maps you may play on, but any high level player can enter these map and destroy you at will, and they do so frequently while laughing about it. They are in fact, encouraged and rewarded for bullying you by higher level quests. The only way to level the playing field is to spend real money to buy a better ship, better equipment for it, and premium account status as indemnity against being destroyed. So much for free-to-play.
If you can get past this, and actually form friendships and rivalries in-game you're subjected to the next layer of the game's coercive environment: chat bans. Moderators just waiting to silence you or permanently disable your account for whatever flimsy reason they can. Free player or Paid account, it makes no difference to them. During my time playing I was chat banned several times for using every-day language or expressions. Their chat rules are hopelessly and intentionally vague. I suggested that if they were truely that concerned that they use mature language filters and parental controls, and was given a brush-off response. The simple truth: They want to ban people to force them to spend more money or to make way for people who will.
After you are permanently banned you have no way to remove your credit card information to prevent misuse by this company. Your only recourse is to contact your credit card company or bank.
So, cowardly company creates game revolving around cowardly play and uses cowardly moderators to enforce unrealistic rules, all in an attempt to grab your money. Words of advice: This game is just a cheap knockoff of EVE online. Go play it instead and leave this thing alone.
