    Incoming changes to Rules of Conduct

    I actually take the biggest issue not with the rule, but with how menial of a job you've created for yourself. Are you encouraging people to report "Bumps" or posts of "no substance"? Feels like you'll be inundated with nonsensical reports. Worse, how do you punish these offenders? Warnings? For bumping a post? I don't think any rules can truly bring about the kind of forums your team might be hoping for. I just don't see it happening. When devs reply to the whiniest of complaints, and people who argue nonsensical points... THAT encourages the same behavior, because other people will see if they too are whiney and complain loudly, they'll also get attention. The best way to encourage quality posting is not to impose rules across the board, in the hopes of stopping bad behavior. The real truth is you need to engage your community that is having positive well thought out discussions. I've seen next to little of this type of engagement. The forums are a barren wasteland as a result. I understand the dev team is busy working on patches, and putting out fires, but your community lives and breathes by its interactions with you. Try a little of the carrot, and less of the stick.

    Thanks, man. I was about to post a really snarky comment about this update but this info solves the main issue. I think i avoided getting a warning. But I am still looking at you ACE. I expect you guys wont keep passing solo images (even cool solo images) as updates.That is wrong, dont do it. Give us real updates.

    Just like Halloween Candy this update looks good at first but doesn’t really satiate your hunger for something more substantial 😜 Don’t give us too much candy we will get sick đŸ˜·

    That's a great point. Thanks for pointing that out. We'll edit the text. The crux of this is that the same rules about personal attacks and trolling are applicable in regard to members of the dev team the same as they are for members of the community. You can say you don't agree with design decisions. What is not okay is name calling, insulting and trolling. A post, whether it's in text or image form, supporting another user's post is constructive. That's why I wanted to change this rule that prohibited all image-only posts. Historically, we have always posted here before any changes to the rules have been made -- it's what this specific forum was created for in the first place -- and it's why I have posted about these changes in advance of formalizing them. I try to pop into the Discord channel for at least an hour or so every couple of weeks. It's nice to chat in real time with people from the community. I rarely go in with an agenda -- unless it's because I have space in the newsletter and want to offer folks a chance to promote their guild or projects. This was just something that popped into my head as I was chatting that day so I brought it up. The rule revisions are something Gordon and I had been discussing for months (or longer), and with Jack on board now I finally had enough time freed up to give those changes some attention. P.S. I did a quick look through the number of forum Reports we received in October versus the number of warnings that were issued. Here are the stats: Reports: 15 Warnings: 6, three of which were for ads/spam Bans: 0

    "Death of a Game - Shadowbane"

    My single biggest concern right there. Campaigns can be adjusted by rule and time frame, great idea. Eternal Kingdoms and the crafting/gathering system should help with "Sheep Retention", which was the largest contributor to Shadowbane's failure other than performance. I'll say it again, there will be large nations, alliances and more than likely "Server Wars". There will be Two and three hundred man sieges. Optimization is paramount. Nice to see Winterblades get a mention! For any that have not read the history, I recommend it! Entertaining.

    "Death of a Game - Shadowbane"

    Seems rather relevant. I'm rather impressed, actually, after watching it realizing just how much Todd is actively working to avoid literally every pitfall described in the video that lead to Shadowbane dying. We have Campaign Worlds that allow players to choose their preferred playstyle, that being RvRvR, multi faction, GvG, or FFA (the latter two encompassing Shadowbane's original gameplay). The CWs also ensure that no stalemates occurs of only a handful of big hardcore guilds left with no more political intrigue or smaller guilds or more casual players. They're using an established engine with Unity rather than their own. But, then they're bringing in everything that made Shadowbane so good and unique in the first place, such as the rather drastic amount of individual customization of classes and builds. In interesting watch all around, makes me more excited for CF in fact.

    Any Changes To Monetization?

    Hi guys I heard that they were offering like level boosters but I don't quite know the full story. If someone could explain in further the new plan for how they're going to monetize the game that would help me understand and provide feedback.

    "Death of a Game - Shadowbane"

    "Service hacked" and "people concerned about their CC info" is not the same thing as a hack of people's CC information. Considering how quickly you left the game VN...I'm surprised you remember anything about it at all. Correct me if I'm wrong, but you never experienced mine fights, harvesters, warehouses, seneschal, realm claiming, realm charters, hermits, taxation, lore charters, lore play, Nephilim, Vampires, Nightstalkers, Necrmancers, Sappers, Saboteurs, Sanctifiers, Strigoi, Sentinels, Doomsayers, R8 Epics (like Vranaxxas, Shuggroth M'ael and Ithriana), ballista, mangonels, artillery towers, Vorgrim gear, Tears of Saedron (respecing) Bloodstone, Galvor, Woormwood, glass weapons, Dalgoth, Vorringia...etc...etc....etc. You certainly can comment on why you left the game after 3 months...or had the attention span of 12 year old with ADD...but perhaps you should leave the reminiscing about Shadowbane to those who actually played the game and know what they are talking about.

    "Death of a Game - Shadowbane"

    Yea, their service was hacked, and people were concerned about their CC info with a company that could have their entire game service hacked. I guess you just had to be in the know and have an accurate read on the pulse of the community back then to understand why people were leaving. Not everyone seems to remember things very well. Heck there are some people in this thread that even tried to downplay the problem of sb.exe before and the frequency at which it occurred in large battles.

    Unofficial Looking for Guild Thread

    LFG. EST timezone. English speaking. I want to focus/learn crafting and may make it my primary profession after release. What I need is either resources or help acquiring them from the campaign worlds. I wont need most of what I craft so any output would be donated to the guild. I enjoy the monotonous tinkering that the crafting will require so I'm looking for a guild that can make use of a crafter. If it is possible to level up a class skills in addition to crafting, I will either play a tank or a support class.

    Exploring Crafting

    Welcome to the forum. The risk/chance concept and teamplay are important principles of the later game - and so of testing, too. If you want to craft in safety, you can do so in the beach heads (campaign starting area) or in the eternal kingdoms. Otherwise there will always be a risk. The same is true for harvesting. You can reduce the risks by cooperating with other players (rove the world together) or by saving your resources as often as you can. You can for example transfer a limited amount of campaign inventory items into you account bank (press b). Otherwise you will have to trade with others or use the low level resources you can find in the secure locations. As far as i know, there are no current plans to change this. Anyways, have fun and good luck.

    No level boosters that i would have heard of (ever). And not further monetarization plans either. Maybe you're referring to the early concept about a possible skill queue and catch-up mechanic (see here)?

    Yeah I am curious what is the trying to combat? Images are already under the same rules as text so they will be moderated. But posting and image/meme/gif/or some simple reply is the norm of forum discussions. It's as common and unoffensive as "lol" and "RIP" have become. The internet has it's own language that has been developing for 20 years so I'd ask again what is this trying to combat?

    When 5.3 arrives it will be on the TEST environment first, so campaign dates on the LIVE environment don't really make a difference.

    Pretty cool that certain players manned the booth during the event. Having actual players explain and show things is much more effective and genuine than some marketing material. Also with a game like Crowfall it's pretty hard to wrap a lot of the features up in a neat little digestible package without context.

    A Crow has Fallen - Coolwaters

    He was certainly quite the character. A lawyer to the core of his being, his responses to forum warnings would put Clarence Darrow to shame, and still, in the end, we managed to wrap it up with a virtual handshake. While we enjoy getting to know most of our players online only, Cool was one of the few CF players I'd actually spoken with. MrMike and Bill spent many hours on the phone with him. Their office is near my desk, so I'd pop in and say hello. He was always cheerful and friendly despite the situation that was wonking up his connection to the game. Our hearts are with his friends, family and guildmates. Lastly -- and I hate that I even have to say this -- please be kind and respectful in this thread. It's not the time or place for shenanigans and improper comments will not be tolerated. Thank you for your cooperation.

    So no calling out of ACE? I mean, the common if not 'accepted' definition of calling out is "To verbally hold someone accountable for their words or actions." Interesting!
