    That "old dude" has a very enviable game resume btw. And I'm absolutely sure he's passionate about the Elder Scrolls. He had approximately zero input in their business practices is my bet.

    I'm hoping for more stretchgoals that focus on drumming up activity and developing/keeping a stronger community here, especially with testing around the corner. Hiring a person dedicated to putting out videos is a good start.

    The Dregs Community has just launched a much needed directory that features both streamers and player-submitted videos in preparation for the upcoming Crowfall testing phases. As of right now it features play and view online status on hover, user comments and ratings, as well as displaying your schedule and region. We will soon have it sorting by who is online, as well as featuring (the large banner you see displayed) online streams who have the most users. This will be a great community resource for players who are unable to get into the alpha to experience the game, as well as picking up tips and strategies...all while giving streamers more exposure within the community. Our Streams & Videos portal is located at http://www.thedregs.net/video/ , you can add your stream by clicking "Add New Content". We look forward to helping this community grow and becoming a resource for all players. If you have any questions, let me know. -wc

    Testers forum not entirely read-only?

    Sorry for the cornfusion. The uninteresting truth is that Friday was chaotic. I didn't quite achieve Full Hunter status, but JT and I got our wires crossed and I launched some stuff a little earlier than he wanted it made public. The plan is to have all of it visible to you again in the very near future.

    We do keep track of your total purchases. If you total purchases equal/exceeds a new pledge tier, you can use that level badge and if it opens up a new testing tier you get that too. You don't get all the rest of the stuff of course. Example: You are Amber ($250) and you buy another $250 of things in the store, then your total would be $500. You'd get the Sapphire badge and Alpha 1 testing. I hope this helps!

    It may be impossible to predict, but once players have found a spawn point, they will likely take care to let allies know and camp this spot for 2 months.

    As far as I understood every $ you spend on the shop get's counted (check your account - transactions). If you pass the next backer level in your case Emerald level you get the emerald badge and pretty much nothing else (I guess - maybe a bonus castle or w.e. not sure). IF you pass Diamond you get Diamond and Pre-Alpha Access I guess. [edit: slowpoke]

    I think at this point the best goals are going to be backend, support and logistical type stuff. Any more features at this point I think will just be bloat and add to the length of the dev cycle. So add a dev or two, secure publishers, and localization for other countries, that sort of stuff. Sure its not as sexy as game features and fluff items but at this point its much more important, IMO.

    Crowfall Pledge Reward Comparison

    There's a lot of confusion between all the different pledge bundles versions (Kickstarter and 2015). So, by request, I made a spreadsheet comparison with all Crowfall pledge Rewards. You can find it here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1LCUtaFNMAuHuhLXmB3UkoIiK3vR-9eVbUTo4uOeIi8Q/edit?usp=sharing It's entirely possible that there are some errors or mistakes in the spreadsheet, so please reply to this thread with the corrections. I will correct the data if needed! Any feedback is appreciated!

    You don't understand, it's a stretchgoal. All of the 70k doesn't go into the new archetype but contribute to all Crowfall's costs ... I think =p Stretchgoal are just a way to motivate people to pledge

    Its going to take all the art and all the animation to make this happen. 70k sounds reasonable to me.

    New stretch goal: Male Assassin

    This is honestly something I was expecting as the given lore made the fae an extreme matriarchy but ACE is calling them halfbreed which is making me think they are doing something different with the males. Still a nice addition for variety thought.

    I assume it has something to do with it being the weekend and all, but Pann or Todd are the only ones who can answer this.

    Yes, items bought in the Crowfall Store will add on to the total amount in your transactions list. If the total reaches another level your access level to the Alpha/Beta tests will increase. Edit: Tyrant was faster! For once.

    This is just a great way to include the community in the development of a game, I hope that it goes well. Rather than doors wide open and adding features in iteratively, you are setting the context, making it time boxed, setting expectations, and what the goals are. Im happy with this decision and hope that it proves fruitful.

    These upgrades are pretty complex, because they are all increments over which package you start from. Here's what the increment was planned to be from Kickstarter Sapphire to 2015 Ruby: VIP X 20 Forum Badge/Frame - Ruby Patron 15' Credits - Ruby Patron 15' Alpha 1 Launch Party Invite cottage Stronghold-medium castle/CountCountess-15' 15 x Tax-free Parcels 7 cell Stronghold-large keep 15' Stronghold-small castle/BaronBaroness-15' Villa When I give myself a KS Sapphire for testing and then look at my upgrade to Ruby, here is the increment I get: The KS Sapphire to 2015 Ruby Upgrade grants these additional items*: 20 months VIP membership (1 year 8 months) Thanks in the credits as a 2015 Ruby Patron 2015 Ruby Avatar Frame 2015 Ruby Forum Badge All 2015 Badges and Frames up to Ruby level 1 cottage for your personal Kingdom Exclusive stronghold (Medium Castle 2015) for your personal kingdom and the starting title of Count or Countess 15 bonus tax-free parcels of land for your personal kingdom 1 villa for your personal Kingdom Exclusive stronghold (Small Castle 2015) for your personal kingdom and the starting title of Baron or Baroness Exclusive stronghold (Large Keep 2015) for your personal kingdom So our goal with these hybrid updates were not to make them equivalent to either the Kickstarter or the 2015 of that level, but to give a meaningful/valuable increment for the pledge amount involved. For example you get slightly more VIP going from 2015 Sapphire to 2015 Ruby, but you are starting with a lot less VIP with a 2015 Sapphire (24 months) than with Kickstarter (72 months). I hope this helps!

    None. You got upgrades instead of an extra stronghold. As a Ruby KS backcer you should have a Small and Medium Castle. Excellent idea! Ask and you shall receive: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1LCUtaFNMAuHuhLXmB3UkoIiK3vR-9eVbUTo4uOeIi8Q/edit?usp=sharing I just made this earlier this evening, so there might be some mistakes or errors in there. I'll make a separate thread to get feedback from all Crows so I can make adjustments if necessary.

    CF and Esports

    The thing is, the MMORPG genre has become all about game features and mechanics. Factions of players have gathered around different features/mechanics and demanded that games cater to them (we are raiders! we are casuals! etc.). Once upon a time, MMOs used to be about worlds. The more ACE can make CF about its core theme and the campaign worlds (and even EKs) the better the game will be. Let the players create the content through conflict and do not inflict unnecessary rule sets and extraneous additions upon them in order to cater to an additional type of gamer. Stay true to the mission of the game--that is the only way you're ever going to have something worth playing.

    I'd like to thank ACE for giving us a spot in their recent newsletter. We are still continuously updating the wiki (I'd like to take all the credit but Jihan has been updating it almost the instant news comes out), and I expect to see a lot more info as we get our hands on testing.

    Testers forum not entirely read-only?

    That shows how much trust some backers have in ACE and how much drama they want to cause. We all got screwed over by devs before. And we donated some crazy amounts of money also. So I understand it to some degree. But so far ACE has given us no reason to mistrust them in any way, so I assumed it was a simple permission mistake/error. Which is confirmed by Pann now. You'll have to put some trust in the developers some day.

    I'd call this emergent gameplay and the CF forums is the good place for it! Now that we've glimpsed the bug report section, I'm sure people are even more enthusiast about the tests.

    1: only if I can turn it off. 2:no thanks 3: this is a given, and ACE knows that 4: this is not feasible, when do you think they will actually work on the game if its constantly up and running?

    While I agree with this, I also realize that (a lot of) people won't see it this way. We've already seen what happened at former goals like the Asian localization with people arguing that they didn't get any benefits from it. While I certainly don't want any feature bloat that would postpone the release, I also wouldn't mind some new in-game features or upgrades of existing ones. Maybe there should be a mix between these two types of goals?

    One reason i cant see it being an eSports thing is because there is no consistency between the characters of the same type. What i mean by this is people are always gonna be confused if they see a knight in one match using nothing but their basic swings and knight abilities, then in another match seeing a knight shooting fireballs because he just happened to have the Pyromaniac Discipline. Then in another match watching a knight shooting multi-shots with their bow and arrows because they had the Archery Discipline. There is no way for any person to follow how each character is playing when the scales of what that character can do is constantly different. Cause now they not only have to learn about the knight t o understand the combat flow, but they have to learn every possible discipline combination the knight can use. MOBAs work decently well because even a new person can see Character A in one match and watch how they decimate the enemies, then the next time they see Character A in a match they know exactly what character A can do, then the player themselves can see different scenarios in which they as a spectator can say "ahh i see why character A did this instead of that" or " aww man if character A woulda had its ult up right then, they coulda defiantly secured those kills" Shooters also work well because at the base level, literally everything is a gun. You point you shoot, most people dont know the stats of guns anyways, different types of players like to use different types of guns. If there was some level of consistency it could possibly work, but to get that level of consistency they would be tearing away other parts of the game. So the eSports version would just be a watered down and diluted version of actual CF.

    While I will agree that this is possible, I would argue that it is not desirable. It is not desirable because anything that takes the emphasis off the essential concept that CF is founded on is detracting from it. Depending upon how e-sports were handled, there could be a ripple effect that causes other aspects of the game (which without the addition of e-sports function very well) to be modified to cater to the e-sport contingent. For this reason, arena and raiding are also detrimental, as I mentioned above.

    Character meshes aren't hitboxes. Period. I'm pretty confident saying they have never been, in any game, ever. There's just absolutely no value added, and anyone who thinks it's "worth a shot" is severely underestimating the technical challenges presented by the idea. Here's a little math problem. If I give you the points of a triangle in 2-D space, could you (with some time and scrap paper, maybe a calculator) tell me whether or not a dot was inside the triangle, given it's position? How about if instead of a triangle it was a square? An octagon? Seem reasonable still? Well how about if it was a star? Or a cross? Or a block-letter "F". If you just went from going "I think that sounds plausible" to "wait...umm..." then you're seeing how quickly the complexity of the problem increases. Now make it 3D and imagine that you aren't even using well-defined shapes, but rather an amorphous 3D object represented by a few thousand-million XYZ coordinates which also bends due to animation logic....and then realize how impossible you've made the problem. Not to mention, the value added, like I said, is virtually nothing. We aren't threading needles with silk, we're slashing a sword at someone's torso, or dropping a fireball on an area. An abstraction will still effectively define what you're hitting, and it won't need to have all the detail of a character mesh. That's not to mention physics concerns, when you have to start realizing that the art design is now going to have unexpected impacts on physics ("Oh crap, it turns out this character get's stuck in the door in this edge case because the tip of clothing on his shoulder stuck out too far and clipped the wall.") Now that said, I imagine a single pill also isn't really their long-term hitbox for all characters (purely because obviously the Lego is shaped in a way that isn't...well...pill shaped). If a character is having clipping/collision issues, then they can add a few more components to the hit-box. They may end up using a pill for the torso, one for each limb, and a head pill. These are pretty standard collision-detection strategies in game development, and they work. TL;DR: Trust that these devs with years of experience understand how to do collision detection. It's not a new or unique problem in the field, it's already been figured out, and they are doing it right.
