    Dev Diary: The Winged Knight

    ACE, your marketing strategy appears self-contradictory to us. On one hand, you say you're marketing this to the non-tester masses. You release garbage news tidbits and withhold anything useful about the coming 5.110 build on the theory that you'll get more attention with an information overload when the patch hits. On the other hand, you persist with cultivating your pet streamers and you continue to push "war stories" when there's no war going on because 99.95% of your paid tester base isn't playing. You could release racial skills one race every few days if you wanted a little tease to build hype. "Aracroix knight" is a waste of your time and ours. Your absolute best marketing was when you were releasing "patch notes from the future" - your player base was engaged, and the mmo game sites whose attention you covet were writing articles about the coming changes. You have so much you could write dev diaries about: Caravan mechanics Refineries New racial attributes Discipline Changes Thralls Crafting Changes Harvesting Changes Guild interaction (subguilds, alliances) Stronghold buildings How strongholds will work in dregs (who can build where, will some sites be restricted to fort level or will all ruins be buildable to full castle / cities) How sieges will work in dregs (cost of sieging, schedules of sieging, how to initiate a siege) God-specific outposts Power changes to each class and promotion (that could get you 20 dev diaries alone) New passive skill trees and progression rates Frostweaver (again you could get 4 articles out of that, one for the base class, one for each promotion) The list goes on and on. You will get a better response from the gaming sites by releasing a long string of meaningful information drops leading up to 5.110. The gaming sites want views - they'll publish every release. They'd prefer 1000 eyes on each of 50 releases than 2500 eyes on a single news dump article. And the unwashed masses who aren't backing Crowfall are perhaps not as stupid as you think they are - they'll appreciate more actual content in their news, too.

    Pann: Blair, can I see that blog for a sec? Huh. That's odd. I thought that would be big news. Blair: What would be big news? Pann: Well, there seems to be an absence of a certain ornithological piece. A headline regarding mass awareness of a certain avian variety. Blair: What are you talking about? Pann: Oh, have you not heard? It was my understanding that everyone had heard. Blair: Heard what? Todd: Don't! Pann: A- well-a bird, bird, bird B- Bird is the word A- well-a bird, bird, bird B- Bird is the word A- well-a bird, bird, bird B- Bird is the word A- well-a bird, bird, bird B- Bird is the word Blair, don't you know about the bird?

    We are not ACE's marketing department. They have trained professionals for that that have assured us they're very good at their jobs and know how to engage the media. We are not obliged to be positive, nor are we obliged to sell more copies of Crowfall. We are not highly trained marketing professionals, we do not work for ACE, and it is not our responsibility to sell the game. This is the actual community, honestly reacting to the actions of a developer whom we have already paid for a product. It is not now, nor has it ever been our responsibility to make crowfall or ACE look good. They pay people for that like we paid them to make a video game. If their trained professionals can not manage our expectations that isn't our problem and until I get a check in the mail I have no intention of making it my problem. I'm not out to be negative for the sake of being negative and neither is anyone else. We are simply being honest. If 5.11 comes out and its the best thing since sliced bread we'll be honest about that too.

    This made me laugh really hard - First the News and after this thread - Thank you ❤️ I can feel the frustration in the active community, but these kind of responses will generate equal amounts of frustration to ACE as well and the result is just an increasing gap between the two - that will help nobody in the end. IMO Problem is not with ACE - Problem is with the active community. Let me try to explain my pov. ACE is not making/marketing this game to the 500-1000 people bothering to keep a close eye on this game. If they would do that then I would wholeheartedly agree with every post in this thread. ACE is releasing an information flow for the masses - and the fact that there are Wartribes in the game is old news for very few people. If you are part of the active community then you obliviously care about Crowfall. Then for a moment put your self in ACE's shoes and try to understand their perspective. I get equally frustrated by the 'funny' marketing news and even more frustrated that I need to pacify my own guild, but every time I do the above exercise then I see the value in the current approach. Patience is a virtue! Yours,

    [QM] Questmakers | Recruitment

    We are looking for dedicated crafters for the next Update. Crafts for you and your stands. In a cozy community without pressure and stress. PvP players are welcome, especially as a resource collector. You can chop as many opponents as you want. Mainfocus is and remains crafting and trading. A crafting guild with organization and system, where your needs will be fullfilled. Specialize in certain professions and get access to a network of crafters who all support each other. Craft your stuff craft your way to fame and fortune. The main server is US. However, trading takes place on both EU and US servers. There will be a guild kingdom. It also depends on what the next update brings with changes, so we will adjust accordingly. For more information on this or if you are interested, log on to the Discordserver. What we expect from you: A good cooperation between all guild members and other guilds is a basic requirement that we expect from everyone. Take care of your stands and stay professional in what you do. Dont flame other Players, dont troll, no racism. Like any good dealer, you should always be able to respond to your customers. He thinks your prices are bad? Then go up to him and offer him something he can use, make him a better offer, haggle! Be a good trader, be a Questmaker!

    Is Crowfall Next?

    If by 3 projects, you are referring to the Artisan Engine, that is on hold until after launch. I think it's pretty obvious by their work on this milestone that Crowfall is their priority. Yeah, the game has taken longer than expected, but there are a lot of reasons to explain it that don't involve conspiracy theories. Redoing combat twice and the race/class split were among the biggest reasons. Beyond that, I'm sure there are a lot of things that they didn't anticipate. Predicting the future is really, really hard.

    Is Crowfall Next?

    I've been following MMOS for 20 years. None of the titles you mentioned I've backed because none of those devs looked like they know what they are talking about. I did back Star Citizen and 2 years ago I got my money back because I can't play FPS games (I get dizzy) otherwise I still think it has chances. I did back Crowfall from day one as almost every single idea I heard from the devs I was in agreement with. I still am to this day, not with all ideas but with most. Can it fail? Absolutely! Do I think it will fail? If performance can deliver 150 people fighting at a decent framerate then it will be a success. Will I like every single feature? Doubtfully. Will I Play it? Absolutely.

    "Towel-snapping" War Stories

    [NOTE: This was originally posted in the Saga forum. After thinking about it further, I thought moving it here was a better idea. So, here we are. ~P~] I received this question in a private message and thought it would be better to answer it publicly. The Rules of Conduct are clear about what's allowed on the forum, and how those rules differ from the in-game rules. War Stories sort of bridge the two in that they are based on in-game action - where rules are far more flexible - and the forum rules where the stories (or links to videos) are posted. I get where this could lead to confusion. It is okay to call out a player or group in a War Story video so long as: It is a reference to the character, not the actual person behind the character (e.g. no personal attacks). There is no hate speech*. We have a zero tolerance for any manner of hate speech whether it's on the forums, in-game or in a War Stories video. There are no real-world threats. Those threats are another bullet point on our "zero tolerance" list. No private communications are shared. Clipping something said in an open chat channel is fine. Blasting something said in a private message isn't. Do not accuse others of cheating/exploiting. If you suspect someone is cheating, contact support@crowfall.com. Don't post about it on the forum or spout off about it in-game. Crowfall is all about conflict and conquest. Not all rivalries are going to be friendly, and there's going to be some smacktalk. And that's okay, so long as people don't take it too far and keep it in the proper place. HMU with questions. * From the Rules of Conduct: Hate speech, including the degrading or vilifying of a particular race, religion, ethnic group, gender, sexual preference or sexual identity, as well as any members of these groups.

    Sure then lets all leave the game and wait for it to fully launch. Cause if they only want feedback 6 months into making systems then there is no point in having any open development. Just close the curtain tell us "we will get you the game in one year and don't ask anything".But they are trying to please both, they want to be like "we have an open development that you are part of" but also "yea but we also don't want to keep you happy".

    5 years we've been following the development of this game. We've supported you monetarily, provided you with free labor in the form of bug hunting and an untold amount of feedback for the various bad ideas you've come up with. We've been patient through the dark ages of 5.110 development but now we KNOW you have piles of info sitting there waiting for some "marketing" push. Yet you give us this garbage. I just don't know what to say. I'm disappointed. I feel insulted. ACE should feel bad for how they've been treating us. Seriously custard your marketing hogwash.

    Limit non-pvp to a max level 0f 20-25.

    People that play in the safe zones all the time, probably do not want to be victims to the jackhats. Yet they are still contributing to the game, to ACE's wallets, and likely to the games economy altogether. Forcing them to get involved, for many will cause them to go elsewhere. Get more wolves playing, stop trying to only feast on the sheep.

    Starting at 2:00pm EST on 2/16/2020 Orion Knights EK is having an open house for all to attend. Vendors will be stocked with affordable gear, food, crafting resources and more. Crafting tables will be open with vendors close by selling crafting materials and supplies. PVP will be turned on for some dueling fun. Vendors will be stocked with campfires, food and bandages for quick combat recoveries. Please only mutually agreed on PVPing. We have a castle to explore. It’s a cool location for Faye's to jump from and see how far they can fly so bring your bird vessel if you got one. Chop some wood, crush some rocks, pick at some ore and craft stuff to sacrifice into our fire pit for XP points and character advancement. The event will be recorded for a video I’m making and may be streamed for any per-alpha bragging rights you may desire. Going to try and have experienced players present for helpful game hints and guild recruiting. See the next reply to this post if your interested in why I’m doing this.

    My personal goal of this event is to capture video of players having fun in a EK before the next update for future nostalgic and per-alpha bragging rights. Want to give something fun and different to new players while we wait for launch. Want to sell affordable starter gear to new players who may not want to farm. This also gives me a reason to farm which is what I like doing most in a mmo when I have a reason to do so. If this is successful I would like to do it again and have others set up vendors to help sell starter gear to new recruit. Experience players are welcome and wanted. My hope is that you will help recruit new players to the open house; give tips and general help to anyone that asks for it; recruit players to your guilds if you like and just help me make this event successful. I only ask that if the population of the EK gets close to filling up we keep a higher ratio of new players than that of experienced ones. Thanks

    Warstory : Zerg or Flop, Pick your QQ

    I am pretty new to the conflicts in this current testing phase and have only returned to this game recently in the last week or so, having been away since basically hunger dome. Some things about the current conflict and the reactions to the war stories seems a bit striking to me. Let me preface by stating that I think both this video and the one posted by the Winterblades the day before both are targeted at sparking conflict, and both make the assumption that their content infer that the the "called out" party is unskilled and inferior on some metric. I don't think either of these videos do a good job of getting the point across. But something strikes me about the follow up comments that keep popping up in both videos wherein there is this argument about using guards, and whether that makes a person bad or good. The fact that this is even an argument is beyond amusing. Guards and fortifications are an essential game mechanic, which intentionally provide an advantage to the owner. This is and always has been a valuable resource in conflict and one that games intentionally utilize because of their strategic importance. The idea that using this resource makes a player bad is beyond absurd, it's like being angry at someone for not tying one of their hands behind their back in a boxing match. You add in the contextual information that the defenders in the current video belong to a faction who is consistently outnumbered in the majority of engagements and have no way of knowing if and when enemy reinforcements will arrive, then their choice to remain close to their strategic advantage is an intelligent choice. I have played with Spectre Legion a few nights of pvp. What I have seen is strategic choices and a willingness to take risks when it is valuable to do so.

    ~completelyignoringthenewscontentinordertoretainownmentalsanity~ Dear devs, please hurry up with releasing 5.110 - we are starting to go nuts. But please don't hurry up too much - if you release a bugged 5.110 we will also go bananas. Bananas wil make us go ape - and at this point the doom loop would close the circle. And if this circle is closed earlier than the game circle ... game over might be the next term to be used. ~fingerscrossed~

    Dev Diary: The Winged Knight

    Understatement. This just makes no sense from any angle you look at it... Is this for backers? There are all kinds of references to changes made ("quality of life changes", "in addition to current methods of leveling", "say farewell to the survival tray", "a first look at the new load powers out") so you would think that the reader is intended to have some frame of reference in the current state of development. ACE posts them to the forums to bring our attention to them. However, the information is regurgitated, scarce, and COMPLETELY tone deaf to what has been going on in the community and it is precious hard to think that anyone at ACE thought these would go over well with the active testers, like at all... If not for backers, then is this for marketing purposes to attract new players? Again, half of these Dev Diaries make reference to current state, something prospective players will know little to nothing about. Of all this game will be, is coming out of the gate with this alleged "marketing campaign" with a few tidbits on the power bar, clearly intended for current testers, along with a few random tidbits about PvE (expressly stated to not be any sort of real focus for this game) really going to convince anyone new to join? If they check the forums, it will not help sell it because they will see the backers frustrated and in revolt, and taking this information on its face makes CF look like something that it is not, and will never, be because there isn't enough information in these micro-releases to paint the whole picture. If this is a marketing campaign then where is the external outreach? Anyone seen any buzz on the interwebs? Gotten any emails (not that you could count emails to existing backers a fresh outreach campaign)? Seen an add in a banner anywhere? Is ACE waiting to blast emails until they queue up the thousands of these Dev Diaries they would need (given the current content) to communicate anything of substance about the game to prospective players, all while enraging and alienating their most loyal base? It is entirely possible there is an outreach we don't see going on and that it is generating some traffic to the site, but I can't see that traffic continuing to flow beyond a few Dev Diaries given these microscopic and redundant releases. This does not pass the sniff test; it is not seemingly for anyone... I think the writing is on the wall that the active community should just plan on collecting their own information once the release drops, because ACE has made it clear through their actions that providing relevant and transparent information is no longer something they are willing to do. I'd honestly have rather signed an NDA and been well informed than to be strung along like this: #failedexperiment

    February?

    We were told February And it’s clear to most that’s unlikely to happen but this idea that you can tell us nothing isn’t going to work forever. It’s been a bad few months for CF fans and any question seems to be shut down, hard. If you’re launching another CW then that prob means no patch this month. Everybody understands if you’re running behind or late but this keep us in the dark and feed us hogwash is how you alienate your community (even your biggest fans expect so little of you at this point). Please stop snarling and gnashing your teeth when we criticize the lack of community this community has. Community is about communication, something we have we don’t have. Crowfall doesn’t have to be laughed at like NW, AoC or CU but you seem determined to be disliked by your players.

    Order of Promo Discounts

    Hi ACE, it seems that currently promo code discounts get used from "earlier to later", not from "higher to lower". So if someone wants to buy the game and has two applied codes, with the later one being higher, the new crow will still only get the lower discount applied during checkout. In order to not dissappoint/rip-off people who only decided to buy due to a new and higher discount, I would suggest to check out if this can be changed ... and call it a bug for now. Thanks Kraahk

En effet comme belantis encore je te conseil de pas jouer seul dans ton coin trop longtemps (le temps de la découverte ca peut se faire pour aller à ton rythme) car sinon tu risque de passer à coté des meilleurs cotés du jeu. Si tu veux voir qq vidéos en français sur le jeu tu trouveras des liens dans le discord et nous avons qq streamer aussi. J'espère pouvoir bientot te rencontrer en jeu ou discuter sur discord ! Heureux de te compter parmis nous désormais!

    No? It isnt at all. Before the "anyone can buy their way into beta" fad of the last 5 years, game betas were closed to the vast majority of people. The only thing we had were videos, streams and blogs about what cool things were going on that we could never experience ourselves until the game went into open beta a week or two before it was released. GW2 closed beta Wildstar closed beta and on and on and on.... We were introduced to the games and what was being added with zero chance to log in and experience it for ourselves....years in advance of the games being launched and it built hype just fine.
