    @vkromas Here is a list of the problems for the archer class. It is probably easier to write a list about what is working but anyway. Character sheet - green vessel (haft-elf): https://imgur.com/kinW1Js Equipment: Blue bow (damages 41-57) Crushing quiver (damages 47-69) Stat problem: Endurance regeneration: does not work well, either does not work or you loss the regeneration as soon as 3 food pips are lost. Attack power: 250 attack power for a damage dealer when tanks got twice that (pitfighter tanks got 700 AP). Range: 34 meters, pathetic range to manage kitting when a fae or wood elf just glish/tp on you. This range is not enough to defend a fort or Keep. From my point of view, a max range between 50 and 60 meters could be good. Capacities problem: Charged attack (basic attack): hitting 600/700 damages on leather for 2s of charge when the arrow is not lost in the void. Just to compare auto attack from druid(stormcaller)/assa deal 400/500 on leather so basically with 3+ auto in 2s around 1200/1500 damages. Double shots (talent): does not work, as soon as it trigger the next charged attack do not deal 50% more damage. https://imgur.com/DcSlyhH Rapide fire: most of the time no arrows are hitting the target but the skill is on CD. Barrage: no damage (between 50 to 140), no range (35m), limited to 5 pleople and you cannot really move as you would like. This spell is updated via the talent to remove 20% of damage BONUS (so basically nothing). The area of effect does not work when you try to hit targets on wall. Moreover, the positionning circle is not visible on slope or in building. Sweep + disengage: too long, the disengage should be instant. Traps: should not explode when it times out. Suppression shot: People should not be able to retaliate on this spell. I mean it is a suppress, isn't it? Ultimate: charging too fast. This point is also true for a lot of classes (confessor, ...). Discipline bugs: Get 'em (Mole hunter discipline): the root spell does not root. Passive "all clear" (sharpshooter discipline): no ennemies within 30 meters... (should I say we only have 34 meters...) Passive "Call of fire" (archer): do not move, charged bow twice then you got a buff. Ho sry, the fight is already moving otherwhere and you only got a poorly made socksty range. Passive "Glee ful strike": this passive should increase your damage by 10%. https://imgur.com/b6K7S19 The second hit is without passive so the first hit should be around 810. Equipment problem: The exotic arrow abilities never trigger (Is it part of the problem described below?). The leather stuff bonus damage is utterly pathetic compare to the survivibility given by mail or plaque equipment. I probably found why the ranger damage suck so hard. The ranged damage given in my character sheet does not care about my quiver or my basic arrow. https://imgur.com/fbJNEh2 I did a test using basic arrow (damage 14-21) on dummy and got the following damages: https://imgur.com/UFafpLP Now, the same test by using my crushing blue quiver (damage 46-69) https://imgur.com/zwWFS5m By the way, the quiver does not have a durability bar, is it a bug? Is it part of the problem? This bug make us loss more than 50% damages as my quiver got a damage range higher than my bow. Passive talent problem: Too many useless passive talent for the archer class (power efficiency, support power) and disparity between physical or elemental penetration. The passive talent tree suck as hell. This seems to be true for others classes too. Conclusion on the ranger: Wood-elf is mandatory because of the dodge range and is the only race that could manage the Fae mobility. Warden is almost mandatory because it is using chain mail so 15k HP and high resistance and has the same range as an archer. On archer, Sharpshooter or Arcane archer discipline are mandatory to have damages other than piercing and the only root working in this game. Quiver or basic arrow are custarded (50% of the class damage does not exist). Currently archer is probably the worst class of the game. General feedback about 5.8.3: Currently, the guards are so buffed than it is impossible to take a keep when both factions have the same number of players. Moreover, the defending camp got a huge advantage because they can ressurect and disconnect inside the keep to remove the death shroud (stupid debuff). The Assassin (blackguard) + Fae combo give too high mobility, resistance, HP, damage and even sustain in stealth on the same class and I dunno why everything seems to work quite well on this class. The Fae should not be able to use his escape/dodge ability in air (during a jump), it will probably balance the race. Another solution, would be to allow all the classes on this race (to avoid confessor fall damage) as the race is not suppose to be broken most players will probably avoid using it... The fight are too long because damages are low: I mean we currently cannot punish a bad positionning. An assassin jumping in 20 people and can go away freely with only "50% HP" left after 30s of fight. Knight and damage druid ultimate are broken, some time the ennemies got ejected near 80 meters from you. Confessor tornado are abused. Fall damage and the short CD on it make it too strong in huge fight. Moreover, tactical decision doesn't mean anything anymore: I mean from a tactical point of view having the high ground is good but as there is the risk to go down with a tornado and loss 90%HP ... Conclusion on 5.8.3: I understand you really don't care about the balancing but my point is only 5 classes are mainly played on EU (assassin fae > confessor > druide > champion and some cleric). I don't care about a small gap between classes but you should show some love to classes that are really below others in term of damage or utility (ranger/knight/duelist). I apologies from my grammatical mistakes, English is not my native language.

    This game wont work if there are zone queues! Come release all defending teams would need to do is to max out a zone before a siege starts. You want 2000 players per server? with only 100 per zone limit, its not going to work!

    I mean, people have been mentioning the need for a faction balance incentive since factions have existed in CF. This isn't a new problem, and some of the people being slammed on the forums have been very vocal advocates for it. To all the people maligning Balance at the moment, most of them Chaos it seems, I have been playing on Balance for more than a year now, and almost all of 2018 Balance essentially might not have existed - pretty much after Sugoi guild leaders and lots of their people stopped playing and my club/sub-guild of Sugoi basically quit also - Balance was just a sideshow that struggled to get even a 5 man group and when we did UDL or HoA or WB would soon double or treble our numbers to put us down. For my part, I mainly settled with just being a spoiler and custard with the big groups. QQ I don't really recall these same Chaos people sharing their heartfelt concern and apologies for me and my Balance brethren while we were constantly outnumbered week-in week-out. The simple explanation for that is most folks are just full of poorly made socks. The rest of the people complaining are just new and have zero perspective and context to the bigger picture and history of Crowfall Pre-alpha. The reality is, folks expecting other players they don't even know in real life to *provide* them with a good time is hogwash. Grow up you children. I never expected Chaos or Order to provide me with a good time and fair fights in 2018, it was just the hand I was dealt, and I did my best to create new Balance guild alliances to give me a chance for content. The other reality is that ACE could have prevented this but they didn't, because I don't think they care or are overly concerned at this point. They are heads down working on v5.9 so that the sanctioned campaign can happen. These Trials campaigns are just a distraction to keep people busy until then. J Todd almost said as much during the livestream, but I have paraphrased.

    WHY DID YOU MAKE IRON A NECESSARY COMPONENT IN ALL RELEVANT ARMOR AND WEAPONS CRAFTING TO THE TUNE OF 80%+ THEN PUT <5% IRON AVAILABILITY IN THE CAMPAIGN WORLD? You have a R9x6 at the Chaos Keep, a few r6-7 random motherloads in the POIs, nothing in the rank10 room, r7x6 at a fort and some random R8x4 out in the world. This is ridiculous and unfun to levels nearing over9000. I hope this didn't come across to ragey and excited, because I'm very ragiously excited at this momento.

    Explosive and Faerie traps still explode on time out and remove the user from stealth. Being revealed by failing to damage anything makes it impossible to utilize the quick arming talent for its only logical purpose of setting up a larger/denser trap field, and makes setting explosive and faerie traps in stealth, and by extension, Brigand's entire role unplayable. Spamming nothing but concussive traps is not a sufficient opener for the brigand to kill anyone, nor does it allow the brigand to play the role of tactical stealth trap specialist. When we asked you to make Archer a comparable option with Brigand we didn't mean you should break Brigand. We meant you should fix archer.

    NA - Day 3 - Trial of Malekai

    Tark's Journal Day 3: As I lean behind a boulder surrounded on all sides, I grow tired of battling the evil balance board warriors. Feeling a weakness in my knees I collapse, I fall to the ground and ask myself, "How did it come to this?". I fade in and out of consciousness and wonder to myself, "why is this custard boulder I'm leaning up against only a rank 2?" I hear a faint voice in my head that sounds like Dolmar telling me to pick myself up off the ground. Feeling the warrior spirit within I pull myself to my feet, legs shaking but resolved to continue battle. I heard the voice again, "Tark pull out your pickaxe and hit that node". With all my might I swing my mighty pickaxe, "damn, it broke". The enemy starts to close in on all sides, "Is this really the end?" My thoughts dwell on my wife as I start to reminisce when we were last in warm embrace before kickstarter. Knowing the end is near, I feel the spirit of @dolmar putting both his hands upon the back of my broad shoulders, a thrust of life fills me inside and I feel alive once again. Dolmar whispers in my ear, "Tark, need dem purps bruh". Dolmar slaps the 8 key on my keyboard and I am recalled back to the temple. Tired and beleaguered I feel myself starting to detach from this world as I prepare to enter another. I'm going to see Quartermaster Shiner in the Shiner Kingdom. I close my eyes and I see combinations, I've seen these before and I feel comfort. My spirit starts to lift off the ground as I watch my body disappear away from this cold world. My senses start tingling and I'm right back where I started, a level 1 noob in the starting zone. I say to myself "damn, how am I going to tell dolmar I deleted another body". I log off crowfall to go cry and stuff my face with burritos while watching pornhub. I'm dead inside.

    After a recent patch, the range to see an outpost pip on your compass display seems to have increased. The outposts have the same icon, a diamond, as players in your group. Please change the icon for outposts to something else so that it is easier to differentiate.

    I don't think a method as arbitrary as points can calculate winners in a game as complex as CF. I don't thin you can track all the metrics that lead to winning. Is the best crafter somebody who makes the most, somebody who makes the best or somebody who makes stuff used the most? I don't think healing, support, leadership, logistics, morale, political, cunning or probably another half dozen of things that matter can be accurately measured by capping points. I think they need to let campaigns play out till one side actually defeats their enemies. Let there be a nuclear option for landslide campaigns but I don't think a point system can reflect who won with enough nuance. Point systems are good for bragging about KDA and epeens and who has enough gumption to stand on a capture point and not claw their eyes out. The downside to encouraging people to smash their enemies is what to do with the losers as they are pushed out. There can be bend the knee mechanics to mitigate some attrition but just like in SB people are going to lose and quit, you can mitigate this but you can't prevent it. I think defenders should have an advantage to make it hard, no matter what, to take assets but thats a razors edge balance because it means you have to ensure that cities can still be taken. Spires in Shadowbane did a good job of this, working walls will help, better guard AI and the ability to build defensively will be a great boon. As for who gets what when they win I don't think winning should reward you with something that will help you win. I don't think winners should be rewarded with more of an in game advantage, give them a cosmetic reward of one color or shade and then sell it on the store in a different color. This way winners get something special and ACE gets to sell micro transactions that aren't pay to win; money in their coffers is good for us. I can poke a dozen holes in my own idea but I don't think points will work in dregs and it's clear it doesn't work in factions. Nobody likes the mechanic, nobody likes standing on boring capture points to determine who is going to win.

    Time to activate a mount should always be longer than the pathfinding timer on racial runspeeds. Right now it's absurdly quick to mount up. Also, tested the above assertion that quiver dmg doesn't help for the ranger at the moment. I used a legendary quiver (on today's live build) and basic arrows, and as you can see from the video below, the variance in dmg suggests that the quiver isn't providing the amount of damage that it should.

    Your head is still in the sand I see. You still don't understand why "people could stop worrying about cosmetic reward" doesn't resonate coming from one of the guilds that conspired to ensure they would get the cosmetic reward. It takes a lot of intellectual dishonesty on your part (W/HoA) to not admit that maybe the move you guys did was not in the best interest of the game at this very moment. The bottom line in any game is if people feel like they aren't getting a fair shake in a video game they will simply quit. If you refuse to at least acknowledge that this is fundamental human nature then you are completely lost in your own confirmation bias.

    Oh my.../sigh More misleading dribble. 1. Out number = Possibly Yes. 2. Outnumber at the fight. Actually at the fight as you seem to continually wish to mislead people to thinking = 100% NO. Question for you: Lets put some perspective into your misleading comments, which you are purely clutching as the basis for your argument and only have that to hold onto which is numbers, pure numbers, and which also remains unsubstantiated even after repeated requests for it: How many LVL 1-10 players, inexperienced, in Intermediate Gear and Welfare Weapons (vendor), no jewelery, and no idea of a good discipline set-up.. would it take to take down a fully Geared (Blue/Purple or Gold), experienced, correctly specked, correctly disciplined, coloured jewelry wearing opposition faction combatant, just one of them. This really makes a joke out of your continued "NUMBERS" argument - consider only the FACTS, that you want to consider, and use those as your only defense. Sir, You have been found wanting! - Time for your Leaders to face the community and stop hiding. Let them post something with some maturity and less bombastic arrogance. Note to self: Must stop calling this misleading, must call it what it as now...lying!

    Silly Rabbit, games die after an actual launch,.not when testing mechanics in a pre-alpha state. Get a grip... faction play won't be the primary game. Class balance will be done in Beta after all classes (Frostweaver) have been added. How can you possibly complain like this during testing, are you that ignorant of game development? Crowfall® has not yet launched and is currently in pre-alpha testing. The game is still in development with new skills, features, and content coming online regularly. Are your expectations that content and mechanics are magically working, balanced and bug free when added? really?

    Yes, it is should be. But current implementation is quite bad. I'd suggest remake it. Start countdown right after you release your crow. Show counter while in crow form. It is really boring to get back and respawn inside the enemy without any chance to survive. Also debuff should be consistent coz current relog/going through teleport things is very poor design.

    I AM ANGRY AND JUST LOSING MY MIND... or meh whatever. I think the chatter is more that one of the bigger CF guilds wanted MORE ppl to join their side to ensure victory to get that shinny shinny. PPL that want the server health to be good and well, healthy.. wants the most ppl to get shinny shinny, It is more to show how the system can be broken in one swoop when there are shinnies around. There were plenty of good rounds that were evenly split, the only thing this time.... shinny.. and BAMMMMM super zerg. Hey, but whatever makes ya happy right. PLUS on a personal note, this post gives me something to troll.

    Incentive to even out factions

    I would agree that one of the best ways to counter zerging for a win is to force the winners to fight among themselves over the distribution of the spoils of war. Any mechanic where you get more rewards by having more people on the winning side encourages zerging. Take the current rewards for example. Every member of the winning side gets the gold sigil. The more people on the winning side, the more gold sigils are awarded. The spoils of war are actually multiplied by the number of winners with that mechanic. Compare this to a situation where there is a finite reward that must be distributed among the winners. It would be more difficult to keep a coalition together if the distribution seemed unfair to some of the participants, and if there aren't enough rewards to go around there will be conflict. That conflict destabilizes zerg forces. It encourages people to break off and try to control the distribution of spoils themselves.

    Ding! He wins the prize. Of course it creates inner guild tension, AND cross guild tension. This is supposed to be a throne war simulator right? Isn't part of being a leader who would be king, being someone who can figure out how to alleviate tension caused by having to distribute limited rewards? ACE is going to never get all the intersectionality possible options right. That is going to be like trying to push a rope. And I didn't say all, I said to some extent. The current campaigns have a rather limited set of rewards, but moving forward I expect there to be more types and options. When that happens, that should be one type.

Guild A joins Order ... HP says 50 member ..so nobody goes to order untill chaos and balance have the same Amount And thats is no MeMe ... i know that guys that run behind Gold Symbols like Hyena will mark this Post as a MeMe Post ... to make themselve feel better ..

    Game client wants to redownload the game every 2 days even though all the game files are still present in the folder. As somoene with a very slow connection that needs 2-3 hours to redownload even the very modestly sized 5 GB client this is more than mildly annoying and is currently stopping me from playing the game. I have checked that the games filies are still in the same folder and the file size (5.12Gb) seems about right so I have no idea why it would try to redownload the entire game again. This is the second time this has happened since the newest patch hit.

    Blame the players/guilds that did it, not ACE. I think it's safe to say that ACE VASTLY overestimated the maturity of the community by giving us a carrot in the first place. "This is why we can't have nice things." The important part about this is that the community just encouraged ACE to treat the all of us like children who want candy from now on due to the actions of a minority. Coach is making the majority run laps now because the prima donnas thought they'd be cute this campaign. But who cares, gold stickers, right?
