    The way this world is playing out, the Silver reward is going to be more of a badge of honor than the Gold. Gold = I joined the zerg. Silver = I fought the good fight as an underdog. Win or lose, I know what one I would want to sport. I personally would be embarrassed to show off a "zerg certified" badge.

    How brave of you to offer even fights to less experienced and organized players. You are so brave. The issue isn't population. We reached out to one of the current bigger chaos guilds and they didn't even know how to get bodies and how that whole process worked. They were at the sieges last night and as you can imagine they did not know very much in a tactical sense. Just because chaos has a lot of unorganized players does not mean we can compete with the #1 and #2 guilds combined. As a new member of chaos, uXa is trying to become stewards to some of the newer guilds on this faction so we can get them up to speed. That takes time and isn't something that can be done at the snap of a finger. I can tell you something we aren't going to do, we wont leech from other guilds on our faction and then leave it high and dry because we are scared to lose. Losing is only temporary, but having the mentality of a loser is forever and it tends to catch up with you.

    I've said this before and I'll say it again. People should have the option of joining faction campaigns as guilds or solo crows. Players should not have the option of choosing their team in a setting with preset open enrollment teams. This is a standard method of team assignment in virtually every competitive system that includes limited open teams for a reason. When given the opportunity, players are not idiots, and players will stack teams for tactical advantage. The system should place said groups of players or individual players in factions as required by simply adding each new player/guild in the que to the least populated faction. This would not achieve perfect pop balance (that's impossible) but it would both prevent lopsided faction campaigns (which literally everyone said would be a problem with the faction system as is), make faction spy accounts less reliable, allow people to play with their guild, ensure each faction campaign reset is actually a mechanical reset of player and guild relationships, and be yet another push as of dregs launch for players that want to play the guild alliance metagame to do so in its appropriate arena. If you want to pick a banner and have pride in that banner, you should be prepared to do so in an arena where your guild banner and your alliances matter in a political context. Faction campaigns are not that place. Faction campaigns are an arena where strangers are smashed together under the limitation that nobody is in charge, but nobody is responsible. Faction banners are and should be meaningless outside the context of single campaigns. Faction banners exist to collect a bunch of unorganized groups and single players in to a single scoring block. They're not your guild. They're not your alliance. They don't belong to you, they don't represent you, and they don't care about you. When you play a faction campaign, you're a temporary mercenary at best. That's the point. That's the appeal. Limited responsibility, limited politics, same access to mass battles and objective based rulesets. The game should stop treating them like they're something that they are not. The guilds stacking balance currently are not to blame. They're playing to win given the rules on offer. The rules are to blame. Imagine telling people you're going to host a hockey tournament and give the winners each five hundred bucks. Now imagine telling the players they can all choose to be on whatever team they want and the teams can have as many people on the ice as they want. That sounds like a stupid way to set up a hockey tournament. That's the game we're playing at the moment. How is it at all surprising that players took the path of least resistance to the greatest amount of reward? That's literally what the game, the marketing, and the rhetoric of its developers encourages them to do. It is literally the point of the game. To win. At all costs. By any means necessary within the bounds of the EULA. The entire DNA of the sandbox PvP genre revolves around building systems for players to use to find advantages over one another, not an assumed sense of fair play. Why are people angry than in a game about winning through creative strategy, politicking, and violence players decided to win through creative strategy, politicking, and violence? They are playing to crush, and they're crushing it. Its not their responsibility to make the game fair. That's on ACE.

    That was one of the best fights I've had in this game, that I can think I can recall. It was like an orchestra, with each swell more and more intense. Thank you to all the Order who showed up and put up one hell of a fight, and thank you to our guests of Balance for storming the keep. Let's do it again sometime.

    [-W-] Winterblades

    Good fight last night, Winterblades! You guys are geared to the teeth, and tough to take down. I thought we did pretty well considering we're casual compared to the other big guilds. In the video I was pleased to see our guys pretty much always (with the exception of stealthers, of course) fighting in groups. It's awesome to see things from the other perspective. I, and the rest of Corvus Citadel, look forward to meeting you on the battlefield again!

    Are you putting in the same amount of effort? Shouldn’t somebody who plays the game in a guild dedicated to winning and puts in the needed to time to ensure they are the top of their game have an advantage? Are you out capturing camps/keeps/forts like they are? Are you out farming with dedicated farming characters after you’ve spent hours talking to people about how to min/max your harvesting time? I’m talking getting the right food, harvesting based vessels, gear with harvesting stats, high quality harvesting tools and a map that took somebody hours to figure out the maximized route. When that harvester is done they give it to a crafter who has a vessel, gear, jewelry all dedicated to crafting. After it’s all farmed and crafted it goes to a dedicated pvp char with hours of thought and practice into their build. Then they go and get points, or just pvp, with it. Are you matching the effort of 20+ people all working together to play the game as a guild? If the answer is no then ask yourself why aren’t you? If the answer is no ask yourself why you should be able to beat them.

    I think all factions should get the same colour item, which I believe will have the same stats. Same item means its less likely for large groups to ban under one faction

    5.8.3 Performance: Well job, ACE

    I still have trouble loading more than 3 clients active in campaign worlds on a single computer. Please fix, this is unacceptable ACE. /s

    Brigand is well and truly busted. 2/3 of my traps are still pointless to place in stealth. As reported in the 5.8.2 thread, Explosive and Faerie traps are still exploding on time out and revealing the brigand. Being destealthed because I failed to deal damage is not fun. having shorter trap cooldown is a waste of time when 2/3 of my traps just blow my stealth. Placing even more of them is more dangerous to me than beneficial as a source of damage. Quick arming is useless, and the overall design of brigand is unplayable in this state. Lack of weapon discipline powers seriously hampers my utility and build options. Remember how you guys put binding arrows on master of Bows? Remember how it let me choose if I wanted to be a more pokey or slashy Brigand since I wasn't forced in to a major for a root, andcould choose between great ranged utility root of great energy sustain from resto? It was pretty great. I was playing around with melee majors and all kinds of fun stuff. I had options. I was using discs I always wanted to mess with but never had a chance. Since Weapon discs are gone, that's no more restoration slash or binding arrows, two powers that are VITAL to the performance of any brigand the moment stealth is gone. Skirmisher style builds REQUIRED the bow root and unlocks for maintaining range to restealth as dealing enough damage required discs like knife grinder or poisoner for the additional DoT action. Brawler stlye brigand REQUIRED restoration strike to keep energy topped up, even while running weapon finesse. I am wearing LEATHER. My options are either kite/dot or alpha. Without weapon powers and with busted traps I can't do either properly. Now I am pretty much forced in to at least one disc with several redundant powers. I can take one of the pow majors and get redundant damage powers and my root or mole hunter and get redundant antistealth and my root. This problem isn't unique to brigands but it has effectively pigeonholed brigands in to taking bow discs if they want any bow utility on "the bow class". Why weren't weapon disc powers migrated to talent nodes, and why don't disc powers require talent point investment? This talent update has actually reduced rather than expanded build diversity for not only brigands, but for everyone. Where's Gleeful Strike? 5.8.1 brigand, after the +2 traps update, was fun. it was effective. And even then it was unplayable without slotting gleeful strike. With all of the problems you've just saddled the subclass with in regards to traps sabotaging the user and nerfed build diversity it is doubly so. Can you please return the 10% of my damage and my missing energy because you're forcing me to actually use a lot more energy and use a lot more melee and ranged powers than before anyway. 5.8.1 Brigand was the most fun I've had on my ranger in crowfall ever. You slightly broke it in 5.8.2 and in 5.8.3 it is borderline unplayable. Please return my ability to stealth trap efficiently, build diversity, damage, and resource efficiency.

    To clarify this . I will step in here. As my honor does dictate . You can ask anyone in uXa . No one tells me what to do. They can ask and i decide if i will or i will or will not. I dont say this to be egotistical . It is the same for any member of uXa they are free people to make their own decisions. The game is meant to be fun not work. My enlightenment on soulin and HOA . He never did hide the fact that they were going to join winterblades in balance to secure a win. We worked with them as we would any other sovereign guild in a faction game. Soulin has my respect . HOA does put in work...No one can say otherwise. . It is not easy leading large numbers of people every night especially getting a melting pot of guilds working together with their own agendas. We just see things differently uXa was also allied with -W- in order. When -W- informed me they were going balance i was saddened as at the time they were good allies and i had made some friends there. But, as a guild leader I chose to stay in order for the time being. My choice was the best one i felt for my team . As was going Chaos now. Soulin and HOA -W- and Dambix/Malefric have made the choices they feel is best for their team and their notoriety. That's fine. This is Factions This is Zerging this is a game of thrones... good luck to all in this Prealpha game. Have fun.. That is the reason we are here. Sorry for they typos!

    EU - Day 1 - Trial of Malekai

    The balance of power has shifted. The lords of EU, once committed to the balance of three factions have forsworn old oaths and forged new pacts. The drums of war beat as Order and Chaos march against each other. The masters in Caldera and KDS have joined forces in a grand alliance to bring Order to the realm. Using their extreme discipline and well oiled machine of war they hope to secure the favor of Malekai in this first trial. In response to this show of grand power the guilds of Old Balance have come together under Chaos in hopes to defy the might of Order. Horizon, BSF, Frogs, Northlanders, and 4g unified to compete for Malakai's gift! Only time will tell, and much blood will be spilled before this trial is complete... This is the Saga of EU. One of political tribulation and shifting alliances. One of Subterfuge and Camaraderie. This is Crowfall.

    Our druid healer uses Pixie, and I believe Field Surgeon. For anyone serious about healing, having Pixie available in the group composition, I think is hugely important. 20% increased heals received, is no joke.

    @Angelmar Since you were checking numbers on our side for the siege? How many of the chaos were actually WB spys? Ive heard talk about y'all using alts to fill the zone to boost political gain and lower the competition. Also Most of these chaos players are VERY raw and new . Most don't have vessels and as you can see from YOUR video they are even in basics. No worries you will have your victory as you can easily hold all 3 forts if you use less chaos alts and more WB alts. Most people will just let you sit in the hollow victory and let the zerg be board. I will spend my time fortifying these guys in chaos to get them battle ready. Best of luck .Enjoy the game your way . No hard feelings.

    Why would illusionist be good for healing? Does it have healing or import support abilities? Dryad, naiad, pixie, friar and field surgeon are your "healing" runes. They all have healing abilities and give you 6% healing mod. Bard, Rune Caster, Standard Bearer, Elementalist, Mud Man, Scarecrow, Militant Mage, Escape Artist and Juggernaut are all support runes. They buff or support you and or the group based off what you need to be able to withstand.

    Just stop. The curve is shallow enough. Just all the moving pieces add up. There has to be a reason to partake in the very robust crafting, and no one would if all the mats and work going into better stuff did nothing. Going from white vessel to epic vessel on my Templar net me a whole whooping: 41.6 Attack Power 4.2 FDM 1.1 Crit 0.4 Armor 1.7 Crit Dmg 2.2 Healing Mod 16.4 Support Power 260 HP And this also is considering just having an epic vessel gets your 4 attribute points per level rather than 3. Sure rolls could have been higher, but vessel upgrading isn't the massive "omg I can't compete" poorly made socks show people think it is. It's something they tell themselves is the problem rather than they are player a weaker class, in very weak gear, or just aren't that knowledgeable about fights. The single biggest issue with gear is the HP. You get a poorly made socks ton of HP from gear, but other than that, the jumps in damage are not huge at all. It's only when you put all of it together, those small bits add up to be a pretty nice boost. But it takes vessel, armor, weapons, jewelry together to make this more meaty change and asking for that curve to be nerfed even more to make weaker players feel like they have a fighting chance is just fallacy. The single biggest thing I have found for my own deaths are 1) my lack of experience and 2) fighting classes that are absurdly strong right now requiring very specific abilities to counter. So please, so us all a favor people who think like this and stop asking for more gear nerfs, stop asking for wipes to be at the same level competing, or wipes of passive to "be fair". It's a lie you tell yourselves that does nothing but hurt the game and make people not want to test because they get tired of accomplishing what they've already done over and over.

    Fairness in maps..

    Pretty sure I saw a couple of equality for all types making the same request pretty much every patch. This isn't checkers, or chess, or even a game focused on balanced design. The difference between Tier 9 and Tier 10 being the gripe point, when you can in fact go take/farm/invade/contest/capture everything in the game if it's really that important to you, is certainly one of the best salty tears mugs of goodness I have had the pleasure of reading on these forums. Resources are supposed to be contested for, by design. It's not a balanced game, was never intended to be. Everyone can't win, and some people start behind or with a disadvantage of some sort. If you want a "fair" harvesting race, go see who can mine the most slag in EK in a set amount of time. I can't wait till things get even more unbalanced with the dregs. That's where the fun is.

If you want to know who the work-horses were...look to the ones on during the quiet hours (many guilds)...Standing 20 people on a camp with two lvl 2 guards to get 20 points on the score board does not make a work-horse. Please don't belittle other guilds (of any faction) that their contribution is not valued and = where only numbers are a differential. I did not think HOA was grandstanding and waving their own flag, but your sure trying to make it look like they felt self-important. I sure hope your not HOA

    This is the opportunity for testing. Better this type of stuff happens now. What the devs choose to do is unknown. They might put in mechanics to discourage faction stacking, but in the end, they can't (and shouldn't) control what guilds choose to do in these types of situations.

    Or, more accurately, that gear is King. The weight gear has today is a bit too much IMHO. And, yes, that includes vessels. Basic and intermediary are used by most only once, ever. At this point those are noobie-traps. If they cant really be used for real what purpose do they serve? It is right there with the first level of vessels, it is there but no one who hasnt a dead wish uses it.
