  1. There seems to be a lot of micro stuttering on the EU server. Skips of the camera and when you run. It's pretty annoying to play with. You notice it especially when you pick up things.
  2. Round up error on Confessor tree training?
  3. In most games Humans are the most played race. That said, there are more interesting options in CF, so this time it might be different.
  4. Sorry, but you are wrong. I got a private message from Todd asking me for my personal opinion in a private message after I said I was upset with the changes. And this is after I discussed the topic for months in the ACE Dev forums besides on these public forums. I don't blame Todd really. I do think he really tried to understand and read everything that was posted and make everyone happy. The problem though is, that the amount of posts and threads about VIP and general skill training were so many that the other side got drowned out. The loud and few that kept repeating the same ****ing topic over and over got their way it seems.
  5. And I hate they added that. I had hoped @jtoddcoleman would see through the combination of VIP and skill training, but alas. I argued against this from the beginning and I don't think he didn't read my arguments. So his mind is made. I don't think anything I say will change his mind at this point. He seems confident this is the right solution. I am not. In the end it is his decision, his game and his right to change the design though. I just don't have to agree with it. Imo, combining the VIP 'problem' with additional skill training is wrong to be begin with. They are two separate issues. First, the incentive to buy VIP doesn't have to fixed by adding mechanics to increase power by adding more skill training. You can give (cosmetic and other exclusive) incentives to VIP which I outlined before in another thread months ago. Second, extra general skill tree training (now called Professions) diminishes specializations and dependency. Even Todd agreed on this in the stream. In the past ACE themselves argued for strict specialization, because it creates stronger communities. This was a good reason to support this game. With that now being gone for a good chunk I'm not sure I like where this game is heading anymore. I'm very sad ACE listened to a few very persistent and loud people who conveniently combined VIP and general skill training for their own purposes. A purpose that in my opinion is not healthy for the game and community in the long run.
  6. I don't have to see the sun to know it is shining. Same with this change to the skill system, I can see where it is heading without having seen it in action. When the majority sees the problems, it is already too late.
  7. And they can both create swords. I don't want this possibility. I want what the OP talked about, I want 100% interdependence from the professions. This will ensure a strong community that needs each other to be able to accomplish anything. I even created my guild structure around this design. This change just made Crowfall on step closer to become WoW. I don't like that one bit.
  8. Yet, you can now also train combat and crafting at the same time. Removing a huge chunk of specialization. I hear you through the waterfall made of my tears.
  9. I predict people will now reach the end of a skill tree line a lot faster than Todd anticipated before.
  10. Except, more choice in this area is a bad thing.
  11. I agree with Scree on this one (can't believe I say this). Except, I don't think this one is on Blair, but on Todd.
  12. No, you are not. But they only announced it for patch 5.3. Which was still weeks (if not months) away at that time. So if you stopped training it is your own misunderstanding.
  13. This is not how I normally sound ... my voice was gone. Like most Crowfall volunteers. I had major fun working at the booth and seeing all of you who were there. I miss everything and everybody!
