    No wipe on launch

    Hey everyone, I have a simple suggestion for a smooth transition into the launch of Crowfall. Having put so many hours into the game leading up to the launch and spending tons of resources on leveling crafter belts and discs, I'm ready to jump right into the game when it officially launches. Solution? Just don't wipe the servers. Here's a few good reasons not to have a wipe. 1. There really isn't a significant advantage for players who've put all this time and effort into testing the game. We deserve a little bit of a boost for all the work we've done for ACE. 2. The servers

    Wipe the servers. I think this is a troll post? Or at least partially? Beta testers already have an insane advantage.

The Hunger continues to corrupt. For these transgressions, D’Orion demands blood! He calls for the Wild Hunt! The Knights of the Golden vessel have heeded D’Orion’s call to action!

    I never understand how people could even consider the possibility of not wiping between beta and launch. It's bad enough those of us in beta are going to crush everyone who starts on launch day because of our experience and knowledge gap, if you don't wipe, you may as well tell everyone but those who have played before now not to bother playing at all.

  7. Putting my marketing hat on, I think a game like Crowfall would benefit from influencer marketing by partnering with some key niche-streamers. --- ACE has largely failed in that area from a marketing standpoint, from what I can see, as a lot of the feedback from bigger streamers in the MMO niche speak about CF in a poor light. CF would also benefit from some more concerted marketing in the faux-gaming news channel. I see promotional content on sites like MassivelyOP and MMORPG, but it comes across as the usual puff stuff and doesn't seem to get much attention. But at least they are p

  8. Class Name: Ranger Races Available: Wood-Elf, Minotaur, Half-Elf, Human, Elken What role on the battlefield does this class fill?: Between the 3 specs the Ranger provides a cookie cutter DPS option for all specs. A ranger or two will fit well into most comps due to its stealth detection abilities. The class as an innate perception skill built into its tree as well as access to the best anti-stealth ability in the game Hunter ( a minor discipline). Rangers should be looking to counter stealth, target low health members in a zerg, or control the enemy with overwhelming traps. Is this cla

Class Name: Knight Races Available: Centaur, Guinecean, Elken, High-Elf, Human, Stoneborn What role on the battle field does this class fill?: Knight is a very versatile class and can be built to do almost anything. The Swordsman has great damage and even greater executes, as well as good mobility with Pursuit. The Sentinel has a range of Crowd Control abilities and makes a great tank or utility character. The Secutor are the Tank's tank, using Tower shields and having a huge reduction in damage taken, they are very hard to bring down without concerted effort. Depending on your promo

  13. The 6.540 update was put up on the Test server late last night and it brings a LOT of changes and new content to the game. One of these is the first form of the Enchanting system. In this very brief and basic example, I demonstrate how the system will work. Currently the item needed to enchant is supposed to drop from what are labeled Group Boss Mobs, but they are not doing so. This should be addressed very soon, for this test, I got these items directly from a dev. This system replaces the old weapon Weights system, as well as the Seals system, and will be used to apply new cosmetic appearanc

Full patch notes will be coming next week, but we wanted to let everyone get a sneak peak at some of the changes that will be coming particularly in the continuation of the NPE into the Infected zones, Enchanting (the Enchant Recipe currently dropped by Group bosses in Skypoint,) and more.

They are going to teach me how to build my first land and structure!" > No they don't... They just makes you read the mini tutorial on how to place parcels and buildings... If you already have them... In case you don't have any, good luck with your square lifeless piece of land. I was really really disappointed at my first EK experience.

To Begin, if you have not already please read the topic named -L.F.G.- A Beginner's Guide to Gathering as this guide will not address item sourcing directly and a passing knowledge of basic gathering is essential to being a competent crafter. That guide can be read below. Alrighty! At this point you've likely had your first real interaction with the crafting system through the creating of an Intermediate Gathering Tool. That interface will be a persistent friend throughout your crafting adventures. In the immediacy lets discuss the 10 types of 'Advanced' Crafting that exist in the

    Launch is the day the game starts for everyone, not the day some people start and other people get a headstart. If you don't want to compete for early progression and resources with everyone else on day one, you have another option. Don't log in for two months and let everyone else finish before you start. You do not deserve an extra anything for testing the game. You paid ACE to do that, not the other way around. You have recieved a boatload of free skins and goodies for doing so. If that seems unfair to you, don't buy games in a prerelease state. Your willingness to do so is why you are

  18. With the update to unlimited exports, the individual rewards were removed and for good reason. Export tokens don't matter. But a replacement is needed. Having guilds bear the full burden of rewarding members for playing in a campaign can be a nightmare for leaders. So here is my suggestion. Make the random gear vendor token based. Provide tokens as Individual rewards for Dregs categories (conquest, Divine Favors). Here is one idea how the tokens could work: Give tokens a quality. Green for 3rd, blue for 2nd, purple for 1st. Using the token at the vendor provides a random

  19. First of all, I'm not asking for EKs to be spun up 24/7. What I want to know is why is spinning up EKs even a public facing thing? In every other game you decide to enter an area/join an activity and it automatically spins up an instance and never is this something the player has to care about or worry about. It automatically spins up when you join and automatically spins down when you leave. For some reason, Crowfall requires a player to choose to spin up their EK and only the owner (and I guess nobles) can do it... but why? If I have a public EK, I want it to be available 24/7. That doe

  20. Hey crows, So we're on the verge of launching Crowfall, a lot of new people will arrive to participate in this insane war that we have in this delicious game. But I want to thank everyone for the beautiful wars we had in Alpha and Beta phase, it was incredible, even with all the problems and difficulties of the game, we were there fighting like crazy, even when I played at 2fps in big wars hahahaha some know that. ACE has taken a big step with the release, and I think all guilds are gearing up for it. See you at the launch and in the big wars that this game will have. And Winterblade

Counterpoint from a guy that has worked quite closely with monetization, and no longer does, and a forum badge carrying crowfall whale: People don't want to "support" free games because they're designed to annoy you in to "supporting" them. "QOL upgrades" or "Optional Cosmetics" are in the business excercise of "create a problem and sell the solution" as opposed to the old sub model of "sell a product" The free to play model, and by extension the microtransactions we see in paid games that spawned from it including this one didn't arise out of charity. It was built because it is successf

  22. Shortly after the official launch of Crowfall in July, we will be relaunching Aerynth Traders-- one of the longest running and most popular community trading EKs. Many players from a variety of guilds have run successful vendors in Aerynth Traders and you are invited to set one up as well. We charge no fees and the owners of all vendors are Nobles with the power to launch the EK. The EK will be hosted by an account with VIP and we will keep it open 24/7.

    So, if there were no wipe, my level 34 would be in there waffle stomping level 30s on day 1? And they wouldn't be back for day 2. Even if they came up with a solution so that only crafter characters avoided the wipe, that gives a HUGE advantage to their guilds. The only fair way to launch is a total and complete wipe. We long time testers still have an advantage in the knowledge we've gained over the years.

  26. So after being very confused I asked a veteran player in the game how I set passive training only to learn that didn't exist anymore. FAQ and how to play guide made a big deal out of this and it was one of the things that attracted me (I don't have 50 hours a week to game). Lack of it isn't a huge deal but wanted to point out the discrepancy as you get close to launch updating the website to reflect the actual state of the game important! Thanks!

  27. I mean basically every major company and game company goes dark about as much info as possible. There is literally no reason not to eliminate obligations to share info. This allows you to share info when and where you want to. If you have successes then you crow to the rooftops, if you have failures then you quietly pretend they don't exist. This is not just game dev 101 but also business 101. It's not some sort of special super sleezy thing. And you do it in your own lives too. When you do something super awesome you're 10 times more likely to share with people then if you derged up

  28. Class Name: Myrmidon Races Available: Half-Giant, Minotaur, Stoneborn What role on the battlefield does this class fill?: Myrmidons are all melee bruisers with decent to great utility depending on promotion. Low-cooldown Net Pull and high mobility and CC defense from the talent tree and promotions allow a Myrmidon to get to where they'll be most effective in fights or pull enemy players out of position with relative ease compared to most other melee choices. Conquerors are the highest mobility promotion available due to Crowd Control immunity from their Berserk modifier and Whirlwind while b

  31. I'm not at all opposed to an AH but, if ACE is, and they seem to be, We could still have our vendors in EKs but solve the issue of finding things by placing a Vendor Explorer in the temple, We could search for what we want to buy by type of item and price range. The VE would return a list of items matching our request and include the EK & Vendor ID. When we find what we need, we could buy directly from the VE (and Blair will like this part) for a 10% surcharge, or go directly to the EK where the VE told us the item was and save 10%. This is very similar to what DAoC had many years ago

    I would be screwed if the game was killed by allowing the vets to start day 1 as level 34 / 35 while the newbs come in as level 1s to be stomped by the vets. My motto is, 'No wipe = No newbs = no game'.

  39. Class Name: Confessor Races Available: High-Elf, Nethari, Elken. What role on the battle field does this class fill? Confessors in general are designed to be slippery and hard to lock down with the blink-and-stealth from their Ultimate; it is a hit-and-run playstyle, evading the enemy's focus and then counter-attacking from unexpected angles. There is some access to CC with this class, but not a lot, so their aim is to dance around and neutralise threats rather than keep them at bay. Fanatic promotion focuses on massive, single-target burst from range with Redemptio

  40. Yes this. Influencer marketing. I would love to behind the scenes to know how much ACE has courted (or not) notable streamers and content producers. Younger demographics get their gaming "news" and new games to try from streamers that they watch. The older age demographic channels like archaic things called websites have value but I believe will diminish over time. Twitch and live streaming is the new form of social media, evolved from Facebook and the like. People don't trust websites like MMORPG.com very much though they can help raise awareness with additional touch points/impressions

  43. Yup, that's an example of a decent in between solution similar to ESO. It has many/most of the searching tools of a global AH BUT: - Selling is gated behind effort and $. You need a house with a porch and a vendor and that requires time and $ to set up. This significantly reduces the amount of flooding alot of items receive since most players won't bother to set up their own Vendor but most players WILL use a convenient global AH to sell literally everything. - The market actually charges a decent fee in terms of time or $. 20% is nothing to sneeze at. - You have to go to housin

  44. I think (and correct me if I'm wrong here) Anthrage seems to be getting at "The rest of the car" while ACE's focus has been on the "engine of the car" We have tested, essentially, one ruleset. Conquest. Even with variances in scoring from tug of war moon/sun with earth in the middle, to divine favor, to primary conquest the entire time we have tested exactly one ruleset and that ruleset has been conquest. In short, go capture buildings, and later on it was go upgrade the buildings and also capture some outposts maybe. Conquest has been in absolute primacy at a systemic level through e

  46. I've played the game since there was a game to play. The fact that its significantly better than it was when a 3v3 literally crashed the server doesn't change my opinion that it could probably use a bit more time in the oven, or even that it is competitive with similar products in terms of performance or feature set. Its great that you are enjoying the game. It is not great that you seem so invested in beating other people over the head with the idea that their opinions are somehow factually wrong. "Do I like the game, or do I think it needs some work" is a textbook subjective opinion. I'm

  48. Has any MMORPG ever launched been "ready" to launch when it did? I played through sb.exe, I played through F5ing the Darkfall store for days, I played through DF2 launching without 1/4 of the classes (the only healer class), I've played through countless early access failures since then. If you are a fan of hardcore PVP games you show up on July 6th and have some fun. We don't get too many of these hardcore PVP MMORPG launches anymore and as launches go this could potentially be the smoothest of the bunch. I first found out about Crowfall in December of 2014 when the play2cru
