    scribbles reacted to calqulon in Gankers risk nothing - A broken aspect to this game   
    Play a class that has escapes?  Rats for stealth, sin for stealth, confessor for pseudo stealth, or barb for mobility.  Learn to use terrain/trees to break gap closers and how to run effectively.
    This is true if you completely ignore combat in a combat zone, although it is your choice to do so and you are suffering the consequences of taking a lopsided approach.
    Don't run around with less than 3k health if you choose to ignore all the warning signs that a sin gank is coming and want to avoid a 1 shot.
    You can't win every time.  You can however stack the deck in your favor especially by running anti stealth.
    There are plenty of ways to counter attacks as a harvester.  You just need to actually use them.

    MMO/gaming news sites were all pretty meh or lukewarm on the game, and specifically talked about low player numbers. Here's just a few from the first page of Google:

    In addition to that, the MMORPG and games/gaming reddit was also ripping the game apart in every way possible:

    Pretty much most streamers who gave it a go on Twitch were also giving it very poor reviews, most of them even quit the game entirely after less than 3-4 hours. Compare the Crowfall stats over the last 14 days to the last 7 days. Drastic drop:

    All of this happened before TheLazyPeon made his video. The word of mouth was already VERY bad for Crowfall.

    SEC filings from 2020 show that they most likely launched so they could begin work on their new project. They have probably been aware for quite some time that there was a vey big chance Crowfall wouldn't become profitable to them.

    You're absolutely right. 
    A bow shot that has 60m range is essentially a rectangle roughly 1 hitbox wide by 60m long. If this rectangle clips the hitbox of the target even the slighest bit on the edge then it will count as a hit. This makes the effective width of the hit area just under 3 hitboxes wide since you can miss by almost an entire hitbox width on either side of the target and still register a hit.
    This raycast width that is currently a hitbox wide is what needs to be narrowed. The hitboxes themselves are reasonable it's the ray cast that is super wide.

    scribbles got a reaction from JamesGoblin in New Website Design - Issues & Feedback   
    Issue-The scrolling graphic for Creation and Destruction has creation for field listed as singular and destruction for field as plural.  This does not line up with the other categories.
    Fix-Make fields singular for destruction.
    Issue-The forums pop out to a new window when clicking from the index page.
    Fix-Set it to target the current window or remove the new window target all together.
    Issue-SSO between the forums and the parent site is still broken, and requires a refresh of the community child domain.
    Fix-Lol!  Good luck.  Pay me if you want me to fix your SSO authentication issues.

    Okay, you may be on to something.  Mobile you can change it.  I just looked through now that I'm at a desktop, and it's not available.  It was previously; before they implemented the case sensitive display of guild mottos.

    Does it make a difference?  Whether the input is sanitized, converted, and stored in all uppercase, or a simple CSS field option, currently the only place you can see the motto is on the website.  If it's a simple CSS field change, then it's even easier to address.

    @thomasblair@mhalash@jtoddcoleman
    During the stream you guys asked for some video of the targetting issues, so I'm compiling a few clips below.
    Basically the major problem is that this kind of "aim assist" you guys implemented for ranged targetting heavily skews targetting for channeled or charged abilities. And to a lesser extent abilities that have a longer animation time. 
    Example 1: Ranger targetting. Whether you hit or miss is determined when you begin charging the arrow, not when you release it. This heavily affects ranger gameplay and feels counter intuitive. Pre-charging arrows is a big part of archer gameplay in all games. 
     
    Example 2: Channeled abilities like Druid Spark or ranger rapid fire (also shown in the video above). If you hit the first and keep pressing the button, all the others will hit regardless of reticle position. This is particularly problematic for Druid Spark, specially on a scimitar druid.Theoretically I could kill someone by just pressing LMB once and then running circles around and away from him. No need to aim afterwards. It feels awkward and on a scimitar druid would be really easy to cheese. 
     
    Example 3: Confessor. It's not as obvious on a confessor, but it does explain why people were thinking aiming was harder. It's really not harder, it's just different timing. Whether you hit or miss is determined when you press the button at the start of the animation. Again it feels and looks awkward with longer animations.
