Me and my friends are thinking about purchasing the game , but we have a few questions.
Is this game playable all the time wihout starting new rounds like settlersonline and other simmilair games.
Or is it like ageofempires online where you are playing dumb missions ? I hope you got me :)

Well, it's not at all like age of empires online, so don't worry. ;) But yeah, you can just log in and play from where you left off.

In the game, you play as your city (either human, elf, or orc). You develop it and expand it, raise armies, you get the idea. There are lots of quests, especcially in the beginning; there's also lots of PvP. You have also have a hero (though hero customization isn't in yet).

It really is a good game, and new stuff is being added all the time now. So it's only going to get better.

You start the game by selecting your race, your region and your professions, after what you'll get in your town where you take quests from the adviser and he will introduce you to the game basics. You'll see that the game si not just like in AoE:O by having the town as an avatar, no her in DoF the town is the heart of the game. It lives even when you are offline (don't forget that while offline you can not be attacked) produces materials, golds builds up and whatever missions you gave to your workers to do, they'll do it with a slight speed penalty.
You not only build up your town and look at it how beautiful is, but you have to defend it from other players and you can , beside upgrades, produce the military units you need to battle with them. As i sad, the resources to buy all those are coming from peasants that works while you play or offline, quests, pvp or even when you just simply zoom in to the map of your army's position and kill every npc on that zoomed in place in a real time strategy game style. Think of it most like Total War but way more advanced...

Yes , the first thing that came in my mind was Total War. Anyway , its sounds amazing.
And my first impressions about the forum and the community are also very good :)

Oh, and one more question , how long has this forum been working ? Some players are here since 2007 :) I understand that the game is in early development or beta phase ?

This may help as it's written for new players. Currently not finished but has lots of good info. The game is post beta and I'd say unpolished atm. But the devs are working like crazy to continue to add free content to the game.

J'ai une question, voila lorsque je me connecte au mode "les royaumes onlines" j'ai l'impression que je suis seul sur le serveur est-ce normal ?
Ensuite, impossible de faire du pvp alors que j'ai bien créé un compte ?? merci
