    I personally dislike this fort/siege schedule as it only fixed a few minor things like back capping, and created a slew of new headaches. 1 - yes night capping forts is dead.....bc no pvp allowed at 98% of forts lol, theres only one objective fort to fight over for 17 out of 24 hrs of the day.... in 6 zones......really, really, boring and anti sandbox feel going on. This also removes any strategy for map movement or control as you are literally forced and pointed to what you have to fight over or care about. This directly helps the faction with the more active player base as now they know exactly where to stack their troops and what they have to defend. (as admitted by most balance they are having an easier time keeping stuff capped)(reference scoreboard) The 5 man fort group now cant use geography and movement as a weapon to get around numbers, they are forced into non winning fights or, to not pvp and farm n craft to try to eliminate any numbers advantages with gear n vessel upgrades. Also now the “night capping” is just towers and gy’s, it definately still exists, as shown by wb roaming group doing towers last night at 2 am in marq with 7 dudes (not funneled to active fort bc forts are pointless still) This directly ties to why the campaign map is dead, pvp has no purpose for character progression or reward and you can make epics in gods reach and campaign temple and eks, why would any one trying to get geared up risk getting slaughtered when you have designed the game to have more safe havens than pvp locations? No one is on campaign because of this, it is by design advantageous to not pvp or be in pvp locations. 2 - i agree on back capping being dead and this being a good thing, shorter fort timers might make the last ten minute strat be less viable if fort windows were only 30 mins? more people might d up for 25 mins over 55 mins etc. 3 - reduced pvp siege burnout is now replaced with pvp boredom. fort locks and less towers have removed almost all campaign map participation, with a main reason being they are all still absolutely pointless for account/character progression. Why would me and a buddy go try capping towers when we could be farming up gear or vessels for guildmates or factionmates, there is no reward to pvp only risk and detrimental gear hits. The game in current format is minecraft with a 5 hr pvp window. 4 - circle standing time is much improved, good job 5 - Respawn cap points have all the same problems forts n towers do, usually they have no strategic purpose bc, capping alerts enemies to the zone, usually not near a valuable objective, and also again they do nothing for a characters development. gy’s are pointless, besides in siege zones during 10-11 if you dont have a fort. All in all im really surprised how vocal some are in support of these mechanics because it sure seems like its killing the pvp and world persistence. There are far to many hideouts for people to progress outside of pvp, and far to little pvp objectives with meaningful purpose that people care and want to fight for. Fights for just points on the scoreboard hasn’ t worked for 6 months. Make pvp have a purpose towards something and people will pvp, until then, this is what crowfall campaigns will look like.

    News cycle— disappointing —

    On June 20th Pann said we'd start seeing one news story a week and occasional blogs. News sounding like fluff for the general public and Blogs being more of what I assume most of us expect "News" to be. Been about 10 weeks since then and we've had 1 Q&A (2nd canceled), 1 "News" fluff piece, and 5.100 update info. Unless War Stories are considered News, they seem to have changed their plans without saying anything. Curious what you mean by "huge" as a post on ~2 game sites and an email blast is the typical milestone "big news" format. While companies are obviously always marketing, actual throw money at it seemed to be on hold until post soft-launch, at least that is what they've said. We aren't even in "alpha" yet so spending resources marketing to a likely minuscule group doesn't seem useful. Not sure how ignoring current population in hopes to make a big push to bring in a smaller group and then continue to repeat the cycle is smart business. Maybe it is just semi cash grab in some regards to get that initial $50 before people get bored and leave? Again this doesn't seem wise with the ripple it causes. Hyping up the Dregs prior to actually testing it at all or seeing feedback from the dwindling active fans seems like a poor move as well. Inviting in a fresh group or bringing back folks that have left to have them leave disgruntled after being exposed to yet another bug filled and broken update doesn't sound like good marketing. For a company that some claim "is the most transparent ever!!!!" I have to ask what they believe transparent means.

    feedbacks and opinions

    A few days ago the infected was set up on crowfall and I wanted to share with you my feelings since this launch and on the game currently. It's sure that I will push open doors and repeat things already said, but sting of wakeup call is always good! I know that the game is in development and that things will evolve but I give my player's opinion because crowfall looks more and more like a real game and lots of new players arrive and give up too quickly sometimes. In my opinion the first thing to do for the game got meaning, is to balance access to resources. Currently too many high-level resources are reachable. Indeed the god's reach should not have ranks as high, for the war tribes and for harvesting resources. A player who starts crowfall must start with the god's reach to learn the mechanics of the game but very soon he should be confronted with the infected. Indeed have a zone without pvp with as much benefits that the current god's reach is totally the opposite of the basic idea of the game (or at least what I understood). We could imagine that the god's reach offers resources up to rank 4 for example to access the lvl 15 and then, we would naturally go into the infected to continue the progression, but finally having the pvp aspect. Infected it could go to the 7th rank for example and the higher ranks would be reserved for campaigns. Restore meaning to the risk / reward choice is for me an important thing for the future. Then, after several years of testing and several reset we notice the same thing every time the passive skills have not been reset since a long time, new players have the impression of being faced with an impassable wall (which is not entirely true or totally false). The passive progression should be much more horizontal than it's now. The latest levels of harvest are a good example of what should be made for passive skils, a star-shaped tree. Like that a new players can "quickly" be good in ONE branch of the tree but will time to be good in ALL. This would allow new players to feel quickly useful (within a guild or not) and thus to have fun and the desire to play. So I think a restructuring of the "form" of progression would be important and really beneficial to CF. By doing this kind of progression, we can imagine a new player choose runemaker job and be an axe specialist then pick specialist etc... This would also allow the dev to "add" branches easily when the game will have several years operating. For the economy, I think we should remove the vendors from the temple and leave them only in freecity to give life to this area that could allow rp for those who likes and boost the trade of more players. Even if I admit that the top would have been an access to EK directly since the GR in order to give meaning to the ek but it may be difficult technically. Moreover vendor's location can become reward from campaign like that war will have sense and alliance between guild in a faction can be a negotiation for bigger guild which give 1 or 2 location to smaller guild for their help. For new players also a recurring problem is felt, a feeling of being lost when you start the game. I think a "tutorial quest" would be welcome to guide the players in their first steps and teach them the different aspects of the game. An example that marked me is a player who discovered that you could sacrifice after 3 days of play! The starting area of the god's reach would be perfect for that. We could even start the game in crows to understand a little better the lore of the game (I dream a little there). I think it should be the only quest in this game to understand who you are (ig) and how to play. You can tell me we already have the little bubble info but they are so fast that new player forget and dont take time to read it . Finally I will finish there because it is already long all that poorly made socks, in terms of fighting, the possibilities of having an impact when you're outnumbered are too low, indeed the lack of aoe (or their effectiveness) doesn't allow a small group to worry or kill a larger group unless it makes big errors. Even if @Belantis made a great post of the different strategies u can use, when u see big fights on the videos or stream u see ppl turning around and some fights become boring cause of that. (it's just an opinion and i can understand ppl dont feel like me on this point) thank you if u have read everything!

    A Reason to Fight

    Despite the circus that thread is boogis does have a point, fighting to fight is great for the winners, i dont feel demotivated to seek out fights right now but the sheep will so we need to give them a reason to fight besides them being forced too, and one of the greatest ways i have seen a game pull sheep into pvp was ESO's pvp ranks, they locked the best stamina healing behind alliance ranks and the best shaders such as legate black and palatine white. Rprs enter cyrodiil to get some shaders, pvers enter cyrodiil so they can heal themselves in dungeons, continually creating a pvp cycle. Currently pvping outside of a fort or keep costs everyone, no one wins these fights in reality because nothing is gained, only gear dura being lost and a 2 minute fly back to a respawn for the losers gets handed out. If during these fights you gained say 1k pvp points towards your next rank even a loss wont feel as bad since you made progress and a victory will feel so much sweeter seeing 5k pvp points pop up at the bottom of your screen. For dregs i dont imagine we'll have a problem finding enemies to fight but incentivizing fighting in factions probably will be hard, adding pvp ranks with rewards will help alleviate faction stacking, avoiding fights, and backcapping in just one change. PvP ranks do promote zerging for points but they also promote small scale at the same time, in ESO i ran solo most of the time because i didnt want to split my points with others, the sheep i hunted had a chance against the greedy lone wolf as opposed to rolling in with the entire pack and getting a paltry amount of points. Another great thing with the pvp ranks was it also made fights around keeps or keep resources valuable due to extra points being rewarded to the victors at the end, a current problem we have with fort windows is chaos doesnt show up until the last 5 minutes, i bet theyd show up to try and fight before that if the longer we fought and the more died during the window meant getting more points to whoever owns it in the end. You can even reward special pvp ranks to winners of certain campaigns like "General of Cybele" for the top 3 guild masters on the winning faction. BUT we dont have to stop at pvp ranks, we can make harvesting ranks and crafting ranks involving the sacrifice process and giving it meaning past level 30. A problem crafters and harvesters will have is eventually they wont have something to do, whether it be because theyre stonewalled by passives or their guild just simply does not need more mats and the trader life doesnt appeal to them. Heres some possible examples for those ranks to hopefully keep them occupied during these downtimes. crafter rank 1- sac 5 white daggers with 90 max damage crafter rank 984- craft a blue dagger with x max damage with only 1 damage reroll crafter rank 200974883- sac 3 legendary 2h maces with +20% crit damage and 138 max damage harvester rank 1- sac 200 white ore/50 white leather/ 100 white wood/ 200 white stone harvester rank 984- mine x amount of nodes in 30 minutes harvester rank 200974883- sac 20 legendary halite and 20 legendary grave goods

    Sorry to interrupt the show, but I'm gonna shut it down. This thread makes my head hurt and I think my eyes are bleeding.

    It’s very complicated and deserves more nuance than they are incompetent. I think at its core CF is trying to be too many games, appeal to too many genres and doesn’t clearly identify itself. Is it a moba heavy mmo? No. Is it a PvP mmo? No. Is it a PvP survival game? No. Is it a group PvP siege game? Sometimes but then part of the pop doesn’t want that. Is it a solo gank/harvest simulator? Some of the time yea but that’s not what it was marketed as, what it claims to be and where it comes from so it’s confusing. I want to trust the dev team but I struggle with seeing some of the influences of the game devs that directly clashes with what I expected (a spiritual successor to Shadowbane with deep character creation, player driven politics and player driven conflict being the major driver for the game) and what I am getting isn’t that. I’m getting a game with overwhelmingly complicated crafting and harvesting systems that detract from the PvP (and they’ve toned it down as the community almost universally agrees it’s too much). I’m getting a game with next to zero customization as there are very clear choices as to what’s best. When I do have choices they are normally illusions of choice: letting me take disciplines to give me powers that I can’t slot because each there’s a finite amount of bar space and some classes have some 100% have to take abilities. The other illusion of choice is the vastly unbalanced discipline choices but I understand that should go away with balance passes but after years of many remaining the same I’m not exactly expecting it tomorrow. The passive training is meaningless for combat chars and then literally the most important thing on a harvesting/crafting char. I’ll make another post tomorrow, I’m getting my thoughts more together. I’ll tag you. These long winded, ivory tower rants are what the dev boards typically are. There’s a few legitimate conversations that have actually benefited the community but mostly it’s the same 10 people showing off our lexicons.

    I agree with this 100%, when the crafting system was recently tweaked so that common quality was more difficult to experiment on and legendary easier it skewed the lower tier materials into worthlessness. Add onto that change that a new crafter or harvester is going to have little to no training and the end product of your labor is going to feel like a lot of wasted time. I reported this in the feedback thread before it even hit the live server but since most of the people involved in the conversation had their training maxed already it barely even got a second glance. There are three main issues working together to make this situation bad: 1. While I do appreciate the addition of item drops such as armor and weapons for lessening the stress of crafting, it also completely negates the value of anything crafted at lesser quality levels or training. Common quality crafted gear should be at least as good as the vast majority of item drops. 2. The experimentation difficulty on the lower tiers ends up giving less than competitive results. The quoted "30% difference between lowest and highest tier crafted gear" was made using a fully trained and probably geared crafter. Anyone less than fully kitted out for their chosen crafting specialization is going to have depressing results trying to work with low tier mats. And if new crafters can't use the piles of common and uncommon materials then who is that mass of resources intended for? 3. The passive training system is a huge turn off for anyone that wants to primarily be craft or harvest focused. For a guild like Eldritch that doesn't even have any members max passive trained the two problems above contribute to crafting results that are enough to make people give up the game. This isn't posturing from someone threatening to take their ball and leave this is something that actually happened, and it isn't the first time. I think the best solution is to either rework or remove the passive training requirements from craft focused play, there is already a huge grind getting the crafting vessels and gear online without the need to time gate a new guilds ability to even participate.

    At this point I see little about Crowfall that is very ambitious or steps too far away from the mold. More of it is a bare minimum MMO design with some nice twists on traditional features, but lack of content and features doesn't make something special. To me it seems like it has a ways to go but between what is in and what they've said is planned, I don't see the game design as a whole really changing or improving greatly to the point is blows enough people away. I've backed other projects and while they too have a long way till release, I have more faith in them breaking away from the norm. Camelot Unchained being one of them has some great ideas that Crowfall isn't going to match.

    3m melee, why not skill shot ranged

    3m melee is taking some adjusting. I can work on it. Am I the only one to notice you can miss at 1m? So you can be 4m off and hit someone with range, but melee would miss a basic attack at 4m. Can we make ranged more of a skill shot? Sorry for the edit, I need to clarify this a bit. At work and shouldn't be posting 😋

    The problem isn't that some players are hardcore, the problem is that not enough hardcore players have decided to stick around and play Crowfall. I keep seeing casual guilds and players pop in. Lot's of new and soon to be gone names I'm sure. Sorry, casual doesn't fuking cut it here, this game requires way to much logistical grinding for casual to have a chance. Dude keeps complaining about faction stacking, but I'm guessing hasn't been around long enough to know any real context. Factions were decent at various points but also one side gets completely outnumbered all the time. 1.5 years ago Balance amounted to like a dozen people while UDL was the zerg. But this year some groups decided to quit because the game was too much hard work, or the people that were doing a lot of the work for them switched sides. The people who decided to neckbeard and work hard on the logistical grind won, a lot. How is any guild supposed (much less be demanded of) to balance out the game for every one else when people just quit all the time and can switch factions every two weeks. This game is enough work already to have to work on the behalf of other lazy players demands. 2 months ago I was averaging 30 hours a week in Crowfall, running 6 accounts constantly. Fights in this game are 90% won before the fights ever happen. Numbers, group comps, gear. You can sit there and mash buttons but if you out compete on those 3 components you will 90% win. People aren't going to win sht running around in groups half full of assassins wearing green wartribe armor. /rant

    opinion et feedback

    voilà je viens de faire un post sur des suggestions et mon ressenti actuel ici : si jamais vous êtes anglophobes ou si ma traduction anglaise est à chier (c possible), voilà une version fr. N'hésitez pas à commenter dessus en fr ou en ! Voilà quelques jours que the infected a été mis en place sur crowfall et je voulais partagar avec vous mon ressenti après ce lancement. Il est sur que je vais enfoncer quelques portes ouvertes et rappeler des choses deja dites, mais des piqures de rappel ca fait toujours du bien ! Je sais que le jeu est en développement et que les choses vont évoluer mais je donne là un avis de joueur car crowfall ressemble de plus en plus à un vrai jeu et bcp de nouveaux joueurs arrivent en abandonnant trop vite desfois. Pour moi la première chose à faire pour que le jeu est du sens c'est d'équilibré l'accès aux ressources. Actuellement trop de ressources à haut niveau sont accessibles. En effet le god's reach ne devrait pas avoir des ranks aussi haut, autant pour les war tribes que pour les ressources de collectes. Un joueur qui débute crowfall doit commencer par le god's reach pour apprendre les mécaniques du jeu mais tres vite il devrait être confronté à l'infected en effet avoir une zone sans pvp avec autant d'avantages que le god's reach actuel c'est totalement à l'opposé de l'idée de base du jeu.(ou du moins ce que j'en avais compris) On pourrait imaginer que le god's reach offre des ressources jusqu'au rang 4 par exemple permettant d'accéder au lvl 15 et ensuite on irait naturellement dans l'infected pour continuer à progresser, mais en ayant enfin l'aspect pvp. L'infected lui pourrait aller jusqu'au rang 7 par exemple et les rangs supérieurs seraient réservés aux campagnes. Redonner du sens au choix risque/récompense est je pense une chose importante pour l'avenir. Ensuite, après plusieurs années de test et plusieurs reset on remarque la même chose à chaque fois que les passifs n'ont pas été reset depuis longtemps, les nouveaux joueurs ont l'impression d'être face à un mur infranchissable (ce qui n'est pas tout à fait vrai ni tout à fait faux). La progression passive devrait être bcp plus horizontal qu'elle ne l'est maintenant. Les derniers paliers de récoltes sont un bon exemple de ce qui devrait à mon avis être fait pour les passifs, un arbre en forme d'étoile comme ca un nouveaux joueurs peut "rapidement" être bon dans UN domaine mais mettra du temps à être bon dans TOUS . Cela permettrait je pense au nouveaux joueurs de se sentir rapidement utile (au sein d'une guilde ou non ) et donc d'avoir du fun et l'envie de jouer et de persévérer dans le jeu . Je pense donc qu'une restructuration de la "forme" de progression serait importante et vraiment bénéfique pour CF. En faisant ce genre de progression, on peut imaginer un nouveau joueur qui choisis de faire des outils en commencant par être expert en hache puis en pioche etc... Cela permettrait aussi aux dev de "rajouter" des branches facilement lorsque le jeu aura plusieurs années d'exploitation. Pour l'économie, je pense qu'il faudrait retirer les vendeurs du temple pour ne les laisser que dans la freecity afin de donner de la vie à cette zone qui pourrait permettre du rp pour ceux qui aime et de dynamiser le commerce de plus de joueurs. Même si j'avoue que le top aurait été un accès au EK directement depuis le GR afin de redonner un sens au ek mais c peut-être difficile techniquement. De plus les emplacements de vendeurs pourraient être des récompenses de campagne redonnant du sens à la guerre entre les factions et aux alliances à l'intérieur d'une faction.Une grosse guilde pourrait vendre/donner un emplacement à une plus petite guilde contre leur aide. Pour les nouveaux joueurs également un problème récurent se fait sentir, une sensation d'être perdu quand on commence le jeu. Je pense qu'une "quête tuto" serait bienvenue afin de guider les joueurs dans leurs premiers pas et leur apprendre les differents aspect du jeu. Un exemple qui m'a marqué c'est un joueur qui a découvert qu'on pouvait sacrifier après 3 jours de jeu ! La zone de départ du god's reach serait parfaite pour cela. On pourrait même débuter le jeu en corbeaux pour comprendre un peu mieux le lore du jeu (je rêves un peu là ). Je pense que cela devrait être la seule quête du jeu pour comprendre qui est notre personnage et comment on joue. Je sais qu'il y a les "info-bulle" mais celles-ci sont trop petites et disparaissent trop vite du coup bcp de gens les zappent ou les oublient. Enfin je finirais là dessus pour pas trop m'éparpiller, au niveau des combats, les possibilités d'avoir un impact lors de sous nombre sont trop faible, en effet le manque d'aoe (ou de leur efficacité) ne permet pas à un petit groupe d'inquiéter ou de tuer un groupe plus grand à moins que celui ci ne fasse de grosses erreurs.Même si @Belantis a publié un excellent post des différentes stratégies que vous pouvez utiliser, lorsque vous voyez de gros combats sur les vidéos ou que vous regardez en streaming, vous voyez des gens se tourner autour et certains combats en deviennent ennuyeux. (c'est juste un avis et je peux comprendre que les gens ne se sentent pas comme moi sur ce point).

    Interview with Soulreaver When did you become a Caldera recruit? Aug 2016 Why did you choose to join Caldera? Caldera was at the time the most active guild in EU, we were playing hunger-dome and often either allied or opposed each other. Tinnis then recruited me. What activities do you take part in as a member/recruit of Caldera? Ouch.. Recruitment, Interview, Making sure there are activities for members to take part in, Siege leadership, Guild management in general, Farming dust and gear for all ranks, Roaming, Relations with other guilds, Classroom training of certain classes (Ranger and Assassin), theory-crafting, assisting where needed in general so there is no one task. Just a long list and if you ask me tomorrow it'll most likely look different than today. Jack of all trades... If someone asked you about joining Caldera, what would you say to encourage them to apply? If you're looking for a guild which shares everything, in-game goods, knowledge. Whom do their utmost to help each other. Whom are a bit rough around the edges, but where there is room for all kinds of players... young and old, inexperienced and pro. Then this is the place. We don't have a huge online time presence, cause we also take care of our RL, and as such when on - we're on cause we choose to be and cause we choose to aid and assist each other. Any advice for new recruits during their trial to become members? Be active, be open, be informative and listen. Most of all, don't be disrespectful. What would you consider to be your main passive tree(s)? Combat What is your best memory while being in Caldera? Ouch there are many… Memory 1 - Dash to the Fort Memory 2 - Vs Champions Why do you like Crowfall? The seasons change how the game is played, meaning there will be time for each aspect of the game, and how you manage those aspects is what either makes you successful or brings with it failure. Any advice you would give to testers looking at Crowfall? This is a test version of a potential game... Join cause you think the potential it has is good, but don't expect it to deliver yet. There is no such thing as class balance, there are many yet to be implemented features, a lot of the time you will be encountering bugs which are game-stopping and annoying. Despite all that though.. it's a fun "game".

    "You filthy custard bastard.” “I didn't find out till today that you're a filthy traitor”, Pakkrat said. Chaos is a bitter, passionate faction filled with hot blood and traitors. Defeat stings but it stings even worse when you find out your close friends betrayed you… friends you thought would never leave. “I really thought you had more gumption than that....” Pakkrat lamented. The siege had went really well that spring evening. Really well if you were a part of Balance, if you were a member of the House of Avari, which I am. I had rained down arrows with my new vessel, empowered by my fellow traitor Heartsteel. Her avatar and my arrows brought more kills than I had ever garnered in any campaign prior, and I earned them all in a single fight. Balance is good. Malekai is the patron god of traitors. He watches over and guides me. In my mind burns one desire, deeper than friendships, stronger than allies, and more ferocious than betrayal. It’s a madness really. Quite uncontrollable... the words haunt my mind: I will adapt, I will overcome. I will fail, I will succeed. I will work, I will find a way. I will not stop, I will not relent. I will dominate. Fear is the enemy of the mind and death is a sweet song, a ballad I now play with my bow or occasionally with my bombs. Royal Kitsune, “custard you Tae!” His bitterness was well deserved. I had trained with Royal Kitsune on how to use the full power of the Archdruid. We had bonded as I explained the vessel’s strengths and weaknesses. I had been a friend, a mentor, and now I have just blown him up. It was quite precious to me. My first kill of this campaign. I came upon Royal Kitsune shooting at a bane tree, trying to take it down. My smile turned wry, he was all alone, and I was behind him. Seeing it as a teaching moment I placed orb after orb atop his head. Spinning while I conjured the deep magics of the earth. Then after my final orb I stared at him surprised that he had not noticed anything at all. He was so focused on that one bane tree, and then I just blew him up. “Bada boom”, I said. Favor to Malekai.

    @Pann ty for info ! As a quick feedback,the idea of this kind of map is great but too much ressources in siege map and their rank are too high compare to ressource map (7 on siege ). With low ressources (rank 3-5) on siege map and put cairns active it can be perfect.

    How to build Houses?

    You can craft all the land parcels and buildings in-game in CF, using harvested resources and the Stonemasonry skill. It's not necessary to purchase unless you want that convenience. The housing in UO and SWG was amazing, the biggest downside being the worlds eventually ran out of space and new players would not be able to find a spot. Crowfall's system is a compromise in that it is instanced so that everyone can build if they want to, but it's not just a house - it's a whole world that can be shared with friends, guild or merchant community using the permissions system: https://crowfall.com/en-US/faq/fealty/3IbfChnulaCMuUGmq8aGiw

With limited imports and only 100 world bank slots especially, guild banks or shared storage of some kind are highly needed at this time!

    Cheers. I don't know why I couldn't figure that out before reading your comment, but I've got it now! Turns out, a piece of bread in my inventory was my 13th item...

    @KatzeWeiss I guess staying constructive was out of the question after a couple hours lol. At no point was I, or am I "salty'. I listed all my concerns with factual backing not emotional accusations. You also fail to realize that at 2 am the fort changed to a different zone......you stayed in Marq with your roaming 7 man capping towers instead of being funneled to the active fort at 2 am, bc I'm sure you all realized as does everyone else no one is going to fight for a fort at the start of a 15 hr window lol Thus FURTHER proving MY point that fort locks aren't funneling people to the forts, and also as an example of how people just hit the current based schedule in the last 10 mins. (Marq was 1-2am est) Thank you again for your in game factual support of my points being addressed. I thank you and welcome your opinions, though would again say, staying away from pointless mudslinging or disregarding someones opinion as "Salt" does not help the game of Crowfall become better.

    The thread is about some specific changes. Its not about how safezones are ruining world pvp, how objectives like forts don't feel useful, etc. The thread isn't about how everything is great now. Its about how less sieges per week is a welcome change, having less outposts is a welcome change, and not having all 12 forts flip every night to whoever stayed up the latest is a welcome change. Those changes are not killing pvp. There are a variety of other factors that might be, but the specific changes discussed in this thread are not.

    Having the Duelist Saltpeter Rounds buff makes it to where your Pepperbox Shot doesn't stun. Pretty easy to reproduce. Put Saltpeter Rounds up, try to stun, does nothing.

    For other classes it's the main hand that determines the weapon damage type outside of special exceptions like Divine Light.

    When my Cutthroat Assassin loses the holy aura from a cleric he is booted from stealth as if he took damage. I do a lot of stealth scouting for our roams so this has forced us to switch to Vengeful Aura much to my clerics dislike =).

    Decapathon ?

    All eligible players (those who found their way into the scoreboard, in all factions/campaign-worlds) will get the skull of the winning faction. black skull, read eyes, if order sacrifices most skulls; bone skull, green eyes if balance wins; grey skull, blue eyes if chaos wins. https://crowfall.com/en-US/decapathon

    Excuse me sir but my vessels are hand selected from only the finest... uh... hands. They are without unforeseen flaws as I have meticulously constructed them from only the best parts of as many corpses as required to leave them bereft of all weakness. My clientele would accept nothing less. These are not fly-by-night corpses of opportunity sir! The mere insinuation that my high quality inventory of flesh-husks is concealing hidden imperfections that I myself am not aware of is a grave insult to the profession of the necromancer.

    3m melee, why not skill shot ranged

    You are only focusing on the two extremes of this discussion, pro esports pixel pinpoint accuracy and high floor low ceiling spam combat. There's plenty of action combat MMOs out there that managed to do a much better balance act between these two extremes and put all due importance on both sides of the coin. ESO for example has very complex build, ability and gear systems and its action combat is fairly generous in terms of hitbox and so on, but it still has considerable more mechanical skill involved (at least it used to before proc sets and champion points, haven't followed it in years). BDO is the same with a more fighting combo style. More recently Conqueror's Blade with root motion combat and troop management. The latter two are sandbox MMOs as well. The games exist and are out there, I wasn't asking for any sort of esport extreme.

    I know that. I replied to your statement about trinkets, which was a reply to a post about trinkets and nightcapping. If you want to admonish me about going slightly off topic in page 6 of a thread, that's fine. But it seems kind of wonky to me since you would be doing the same thing by your logic.

    A few things I've noticed this campaign: Opening the map while auto running removes the ability to use your mouse on the map I have ambient sound volume set to 0. Every time I restart the game the ambient sound comes back. I have to go into the sound menu (where it still shows as set to 0) in order to disable the sounds again. I don't actually have to adjust the slider, simply going to the menu sets it back to 0. Druid bombs often appear invisible until exploded (https://youtu.be/sWvBrAYKPag?t=541) Mousing over certain things such as inventory items clears anything you may have typed into chat (makes it hard to hover over stats and type into chat) General chat tab often disappears completely 98% Success on crafting produces a failure rate much higher than shown Occasionally running over loot doesn't pick up the loot but makes it invisible/unable to be picked up. It still shows for other players in your group and they are able to pick it up. I notice this most often when motherloading, but that's probably just when I'm looting in a group the most. Vault noises are amplified when adding and removing many items without restarting the client. Confessor Meteor Purge often visually hits the ground 20 meters in front of the targets but still does damage to the targets you were aiming at. Certain spells seem to damage keep walls (druid bombs, confessor spells) Rapid fire (ranger and duelist) will always hit the target once channeling regardless of LOS. Assassin toxins now work without being reequiped on zone entry but the graphic on the pip doodad remains white Mouse turning seems to glitch and 180 whenever frames dip (Fix your delta time calcs!)

    Map Idea to Promote PvP

    That’s how the advertised it during the Kickstarter. There’s only 3 planned campaign styles (gods reach, faction and dregs). Gods reach is intended for noobies. Factions is intended for casual play/less organized guilds. Dregs is supposed to be for the big fish. That’s not hyperbole, that’s the intended players for each CW type. Should they have the same resource quality knowing one is for noobs, one is for casuals and one is for the most organized guilds looking for gvg?

    New and have some questions!

    Every player gets their own Eternal Kingdom (EK). Each EK is its own server, so from that perspective, housing is instanced. However, each Monarch (owner) of an EK can invite other players to place parcels, buildings, defensive structures and vendors. So a guild could have a single EK where everyone has something they own (up to a point). CF is very much a sandbox game, with deep harvesting and crafting systems. Guilds are extremely helpful, though you can be successful as a solo player (again, up to a point). There are some things where you will need the help of other players.

    5.100 LIVE Feedback for 8/16/19

    Just hit some of the new addditions after taking a few months break. Here are a couple things I noticed. First, not letting players into the campaign until level 20 means players can't join their friends; don't like this move. Updated graphics are nice and character controller feels a lot smoother. Not able to name your character felt hollow after being able to name them in previous versions. Not sure I like the removal of the altar/XP trade in at the Pre-Earth starter area. New players should get a chance to level up higher before even going to "Earth". Changing the "F" to interact with the gate to a hold and press didn't feel right. I liked the simple press "F" from before. Love the "Throwing Hammer of the Irekei" great to see more nods to SB. Pulling items out of the Account Vault should be a right click anywhere on the bar, not just the little 1/2" x 1/2" icon. I was trying to take items out and it wouldn't work until I accidentally hovered over the image icon and it worked. The Account vault is one of the biggest negatives currently in my opinion. I'm not sure if I missed it, but when entering into God's Reach I didn't get the option to choose which faction I wanted to belong to. Previously you could be seperate of your guild. I'm not sure if I'm part of one big faction in this round of testing, or it was auto selected for me.

    3 Faction Systems Don't Work

    At least you admit it. I feel bad for 5 man guilds that expect to compete in system obviously designed for much larger forces. The only sovereignty a guild will have is what it can maintain through force, guile, cunning and good ole shenanigans and some of these small guilds are about to get smashed. going to be miserable for them to play with no assets.
