Yup! It's glorious! Spend tons of time only to screw up once and have to work from the ground up again.
Darkfall fans would call me a carebear, but I have better things to do than play a game for a very long time only to lose everything and have to start over. I would be fine with some penalty, like losing a single item, but how do you even start over without anything left?
It's a different story if itemization doesn't mean much and it's relatively easy to get equivalent items, but I wouldn't know because the devs failed miserably at spreading information about this game.
