    Siege Perilous Questions

    Great list. Outlining this system will be the focus of one or more updates between now and SP 1.0. and remember that some of the answers, just like Hunger Dome, will be short-cuts that we are taking right now, just for testing. We're still not going to be using generated maps, so that means by default there will be a handful of things that we know we have to come back and revisit for the actual game. (just like the item drops in Hunger Dome, which were dropped in due to the fact that we don't have crafting or resource collection. Todd ACE

    Siege Perilous Questions

    I'm itching for more information about Siege Perilous (SP) but since I can't get my crowcain fix I figured I'd indulge in some rampant speculation with fellow addicts. The only things I know about SP come from this post http://crowfall.com/en/news/founders-update-testing-2-0-siege-perilous/ So...two team session based test of capture mechanics and destruction. I think its safe to assume that much of the team mechanics from the hunger dome will move to SP in that we can pick which of two teams we will join. The destruction will probably be in the same map layout. My questions: Where will the Siege equipment be?Are they already placed in the world - SP 1.0 Catapults spawn 3 at a time in the world. After SP the plan is to have build times and resource requirements for each that craters will manage with a limited number of bays to build siege equipment Can I buy siege equipment from vendors Do we have to loot siege equipment from mobs How are the bane circles and trees placedSame locations every time - SP 1.0 Tree of Life (TOL) is always on top of the keep and the bane trees are West, North, and East of the keep. Random selection of # locations each What are the siege mechanics likeDoes "entering" the siege equipment grant me a new set of skills - SP 1.0 Does clicking the siege equipment just cause it to do its thing Do they have pet controls and AI runs it What kind of siege equipment is available to each team? - SP 1.0 has catapults for the attacking team. Plans to add more in the future. Will the hunger still be the upper limit for the duration of each match? - SP 1.0 A time limit is set but it is adjusted by deaths for defenders and attackers. Destroy the TOL and attackers win. Destroy the Bane Trees and defenders win. The team that has done the most damage to the TOL or all 3 bane trees wins when the time runs out. Can the defenders repair walls and other defenses? - SP 1.0 not yet Is siege damage a new kind of pool? - Yes, but magic damage from players will remove the magic barrier on wallsFor clarity-do walls have HP that my sword of fireball can reduce or does my ability need to have some new kind of damage factor Edits: In Bold

    Yeees A contest <3 Here are my "creations" depicting of the famous Australia routes. (I love these landscape) The long road of waiting for Crowfall. I do not know if I further transform this photo. Otherwise written "Beware Unfenced MMO For Next 150 Days" for exemple. It would be better? Protecting crows, save crowfall ! (Sorry for my (so) poor english, i'm a french fan ^^'. I prefer read than write )

    Hello Crowfall!

    Hey guys, I've know about this game for awhile but just decided to back it. I used to play a hell of alot of Darkfall and I'm excited about a game that can offer the same type fun with the choice of FFA pvp and loot without the massive time sink to stay competitive. Can't wait to see some familiar faces and hopefully recapture some of the same good times without the hassle of farming all day and macroing all night.

    Well I didn't know ya'll were gonna post this great big 'thank you' when I gave ya some more money this morning. It really wasn't necessary, but I appreciate it anyway. I personally haven't played a persistent MMO in years, yeah the developers call 'em persistent, but in most games after launch, in the first 3 months the Clan has quit, by month 4 my friends have quit, by month 5 the fall back guild has quit playing, and by month 6 I'm looking at server shut down and consolidation, so I quit. Not much persistence I'd say. I'm investing in your vision specifically because ya'll understand how fast your target market gets bored and moves onto the next game. And building that into your game by utilizing win conditions and server destruction was pure genius. Now if the Clan gets bored in 60 days and quits the game, I can start over on a new server, with new people, and keep my character improvements. And if you get combat right and tweak the new servers enough from the old servers, the game may stay fresh for much longer than six months. That is my hope anyway.

    Love it or hate it I backed it because I liked the ideas presented. I was tired of the same retread ideas and this was something different. Even if this game crashes and burns the noise has been made that there is an audience out there that wants something different. The MMO scene has been lacking innovation for a while as they all try to copy WoW with some tweaks.

    Hallo zusammen, ich habe ja quasi erst 2016 gepledged, gefunden habe ich es aber durch puren Zufall eigentlich. Von Zeit zu Zeit durchstöbere ich die mmorpg.com-Liste, bin aber schon seit Jahren nicht mehr auf der Suche nach dem kommerziellen Hype wie WoW, TESO und Konsorten sondern habe da ein recht klares Genre bzw. Genre- bzw. Aspektemix bestehend aus a) möglichst Open-World möglichst sandboxy c) möglichst viel PvP-Content (in jedem Fall aber nicht ausschließlich Mass/Zerg) d) möglichst FullLoot oder eben möglichst harte Konsequenzen (XP-Verlust, etc.) e) möglichst "nischig" (beispielsweise Darkfall, hatte mMn nie zu viel Community) CF war dann eines der "hyped" Games auf mmorpg.com die dann doch irgendwie nicht wirklich hyped sind, ich bin jetzt nämlich drauf sensibilisiert und lese noch immer kaum etwas abseits der einschlägigen, CF-spezifischen Seiten darüber ... vielleicht hat das aber auch sein Gutes? Von Anhieb hatte ich so meine Hürden, die physical Collectors war für mich quasi unbestellbar weil man meine Adresse im Shop nicht so recht erkannte (keine Ahnung ob das bislang behoben wurde), jdf. habe ich dann kurzerhand einfach Gold geplegded. Auch beim ersten möglichen Test war das mit dem Einloggen nicht sofort reibungslos und bedurfte manueller Freischaltung nachdem Shiro kurzerhand Gordon anhaute : - ) (Danke dafür nochmals) Trotzdem habe ich mich v.a. durch Gordon seitens des Supportes extrem persönlich, extrem zeitnah und extrem freundlich betreut gefühlt. Ich glaube so habe ich das noch nie erlebt. (in gemäßigter Form noch evtl. bei Shards Online bzw. Sota) Die gesamten Illustrationen sind hammer und erinnern mich vom Genreeinschlag total stark an Numenera (http://www.numenera.com/) auch wenn das ein PnP-Rollenspiel ist, aber trotzdem, einfach schön ... wirkt auf mich sehr immersiv. Ich mag es wenn man bei Fantasy das klassische EDO durchbricht und wider bekannter Klischees auch mal anderes bringt. Ich mags vom Mood her eher Grim, Gritty und Dark und glaube aber auch, dass das trotz Hamster gut funktionieren kann :-) Nehmen wir mal die Warhammer Welt von Games Workshop, da gibt's auch humanoide Ratten und das ist auch alles andere als Kinderkost ... Die Community wirkte mir auf Anhieb sehr zugänglich, Shiro war sicher so der erste Anlaufpunkt, dann habe ich mir kurzerhand bei den Northlanders aufgedrängt weil Community für mich ein sehr wichtiger Aspekt eines MMOs ist. Ich glaube viele meiner MMO(RPG)-Erfahrungen scheiterten an der Community oder sagen wir's mal weniger arrogant, an der Community wie ich diese subjektiv empfunden habe *smile* Damit meine ich zum einen die Community im Gesamten, als auch die Community im Kreise eines Clans, Gilde, was auch immer. Ich hau mechanisch total gerne auf's Aug, vielleicht weil ich div. reale komplexe kompensiere, vielleicht aber auch einfach nur deshalb weil ich digital eben gerne auf's Maul gebe *fg - Fakt ist jedenfalls ich möchte meinen Enthusiasmus teilen können. Ich glaube das kann ich hier. Und ich habe das Gefühl als würde es hier erwachsen sportlich zur Sache gehen können. Und das mag ich. Was diese ganzen Abgänge bei ACE angeht kenne ich mich in der Branche zu wenig aus. Mein bester Kumpel arbeitet zwar hauptberuflich als Level Designer in der Gaming Industrie und der meint auch ich solle dem da nicht zu viel Beachtung beimessen, aber ich denke wenn eine Community durch - etwas - verunsichert ist sollte man es mal grundsätzlich erst nehmen. Ich denke hier geht es v.a. um ein gewisses Grundvertrauen, ACE hat keine Referenzen, ich finde hier also eine möglichst transparente Haltung für gesund. Wenn ich an 2005 zurückdenke konnte Blizzard zB damals nicht viel falsch machen, die hatten vor Release des Branchenvernichters WoW eine so große Community eingefleischter Fans die im Prinzip alles schluckten - völlig egal welches Genre, dass man ihnen natürlich ein viel viel größeres Grundvertrauen entgegenbrachte. Ich selbst kam damals auch als der Diablo + Starcraftecke - konnte bis heute nie wieder ein Hack+Slay oder Echtzeitstrategiespiel spielen, aber es war Blizzard, damals hätte ich von denen alles gespielt wenn die gesagt hätten "Das isses jetzt, kauft das!" Bisher sehe ich aber gar keinen Grund dem Projekt zu misstrauen. Ich habe keinen Vergleich, plegden ist für mich irgendwie Neuland, auch wenn ich es in letzter Zeit sehr viel tue. Ich habe auch keinerlei Ahnung ob die Fundingsumme realistisch ist und ebenso wenig Ahnung wie realistisch Ende 2016 ist. Ich hab aber auch kein Problem zu warten, mein Fokus liegt aktuell sowieso auf The Divison und Albion Online. Mir erscheint in den Foren generell wenig Leben, auf der anderen Seite - wenn man den Status des Spiels bedenkt auch wieder relativ viel. Ich hab heute in der Arbeit ein bissl durch andere Spiele in einem ähnlichen Entwicklungsstadium gesurft und die scheinen mir viel weniger belebt. Die Internetpräsenzen stinken gegen die von CF regelrecht ab. So das war jetzt eh schon viel zu viel Schreibe ohne erkennbare Struktur, sorry dafür, unstrukturierte Grüße

    Dear ACE Art Team: Lets talk about Legionnaire Armor. Specifically Stalwarts/Bruiser Scale and the Plate models. Please explain why Centaurs would wear saddles as part of their armor, if no one is going to be riding them? Is there an oppressive overclass of two-leggers coming to the lore, that mandate all Centaurs must be branded with a saddle as a badge of dishonor? See example of the offending model below. At least on the Blade-biter set, the saddle kind of looks like its just additional decorative stuff. In the alternative, I think JTodd should own up and confirm Horse Taxi Service will be implemented in game. Sincerely, A Concerned Legionnaire. The Mark of Enslavement--The Saddle:

    I would never in my whole life even get to the idea, to draw a picture for the people at EA or any other game publisher these days. I think nobody in the whole world would ever come to this idea, no one, not even their family members. Its totally awkward, isnt it?! But for you guys I did, because I really felt like doing it, because its really fun to be with you guys. Keep up the good work. We can reach anything within game creating together, what EA and their likes never ever could, even with all their money they got. Because money doesnt make games. I didnt know the people of ACE before (Gordon Walton and JTC). But I have to say they are seemingly an outstanding shiny last hope for the future of the gaming industry. They are totally different from the rest of the gaming industry, its so much necessary, so much needed and so refreshing to have interesting people, who love video games, developing your game. The rest is really upsetting. If Crowfall comes to be anywhere near from what I expect, and so far it is looking pretty good, I am gonna support them in anything they are going to do in the future.

    I remember Malog. I think it was us (SotD) and Societas Daemonica that were the last fighting CN on that heap. I guarantee there were probably around 350- 400 players on the fields for some of those. Slide show banes. We lost Malog. Thurin kept the threat out through a collective effort and the fortune of CN never having established there. The funny thing is back in the day on Mourning, during the bane on Pleasure (DHL) I was part of the "Rainbow Alliance" against UDL/EQ/DHL. There was 24/7 asset destruction back then. People logged in in shifts almost. I think the entirety of pre-bane seiging and bane live lasted around 18 hours. It was crazy.

    Zuiderzee Works The Zuiderzee Works (Dutch: Zuiderzeewerken) are a man-made system of dams and dikes, land reclamation and water drainage works, in total the largest hydraulic engineering project undertaken by the Netherlands during the twentieth century. The project involved the damming of the Zuiderzee, a large, shallow inlet of the North Sea, and the reclamation of land in the newly enclosed water using polders. Its main purposes are to improve flood protection and create additional land for agriculture. The American Society of Civil Engineers declared these works, together with the Delta Works in the South-West of the Netherlands, as among the Seven Wonders of the Modern World.

    No, this is a sand box game where there are no missions, so trying to limit what players can do would be a bad idea. Also adding more work would take away from other game systems tha work better for Crowfall.

    It's all relative, we'll just have to see. "Zerg" is what exactly? 20 to your 10? 50 to your 30? 120 to your 50? There is this false narrative that is being floated, almost as an absolute, implying that large groups of players cannot communicate, coordinate and execute skilled game play. Is this psychic friends network? Will there be mindless zergs? Absolutely. Will there be large groups of experienced people that play as a skilled, cohesive unit? You bet. Don't kid yourself, big numbers does not automatically equal "suck".

    Description on imgur: Under a Cawing Moon (cookie for those who get this game reference) Edited shot of the Capitol building in Austin Texas with the stages of a lunar eclipse superimposed over the Goddess of Liberty. Imposed on the eclipsing moon itself is the symbol of the exciting upcoming MMO Crowfall. The symbolism here is that every campaign in Crowfall has phases, just like a lunar eclipse, that ebb and flow like the tides. In Crowfall gods are critical to the plot and the goddess statue represents one of the gods directing the campaign (i.e the eclipse). The redness of the moon represents the peak of the bloodshed during the campaign that slowly fades away as the campaign ends - just like the crows that inhabit the game world itself fade away into nothing.

    na dann... lass ich mich halt aus Um ganz ehrlich zu sein, bin ich kurz davor meine Accounts zu verscherbeln. Wenn mir jemand genug bietet, würd ich mit Freuden einen abgeben. Aber dies nurmal um meine derzeitige Stimmung zu unterstreichen. Combat: Mir scheint es so, als wäre unser wehrter Herr Blair unfähig, was das Entwickeln der combat engine angeht. Das was wir bisher gesehen haben, erinnert enorm an dieses superhelden spiel an dem er zuvor gearbeitet hat. Sehr statisch und dann einfach "action combat" drauss gemacht, anstelle des Tab-Targetings. Die Tatsache, dass er mehr oder weniger von Todd ein paar auf die Finger bekommen hat, macht mich etwas optimistischer, aber ich bin sehr skeptisch was die Umsetzung für SP angeht. Wenn ich bis zu dessen release dann keine Schritte in die richtige Richtung sehe, werd ich mich wohl verabschieden (was hier wohl paar leute freuen wird ). Diese Trusted Trader werden einen zwar preislich übern Tisch ziehen, aber was will man machen... Wegfall / neue Mitarbeiter: Seh das nicht als sonderlich schlimm an. Zumindest bis auf Thomas Sitch... das beisst ACE evtl noch in den Arsch, wenn dem seine Tornado Engine nicht so funktioniert wie sie soll. Der wird sich seiner Vampir Totgeburt widmen und ob die Engine jetzt funktioniert oder nicht, wird ihm wohl ziemlich sacke sein. Was die anderen angeht... meh... denk so leute gibts wie Sand am Meer. Release Termin: Es scheint ja, als ob sie am Dez 2016 festhalten. Beim derzeitigen Tempo und selbst mit äusserst optimistischen Aussichten, ist der Termin absolut utopisch und selbst wenn sie, wie sie immer sagen, den Termin einfach wahrnehmen und nicht mehr wipen, wär imo ein Release zu dem Zeitpunkt absolut katastrophal. Ich hoffe, dass die sich das nochmal ganz genau überlegen und lieber ne Beta nen Jahr länger ziehen, als irgendwas Halbfertiges zu releasen und dann lauter 40er Wertungen auf Gaming-Seiten kassieren. Ansonsten... gibt ja nicht viel neues oder überraschendes. Die News der letzten Monate haben jetzt nichts weltbewegendes oder unerwartetes offenbart. Bin weiterhin der Meinung, dass ACE's Marketing unter aller Sau ist und sie immer noch nicht realisiert haben, was ihre eigentliche Zielgruppe ist. Die Leute, denen sie Interviews geben, oder die Artikel schreiben sind sowas von abseits der Zielgruppe, ist nicht mehr feierlich.

    As we're headed into black desert, this is one of the rare opportunities that another guild can get in good with us long term. Because I will be leaving bdo once crowfall launches there will be a different guild leader for bdo. However as I am still the community leader I still hold significant influence over the relations and directions of the guild. Please look for me or Reiko on black desert we'll see you there.

    Low budget "trailer" to end campaigns

    After playing these poorly made socksty MOBA today again I reverse my statement. Please no statistics anywhere in thsi game. People are clearly far too stupid for statistics. Statistics ruin your game, because these idiots lose games because they only care for a number in their statistics. People are so damn stupid. Please hurry and bring this game out. I cant take it anymore, seriously!
