    orange got a reaction from chancellor in Ingame Names? Character Customization?   
    So lets just jump straight to the point, are we going to have to use crappy as automated names where we get little to no choice like in p101/wiz or it depends on our class. Because if that's it I'm going to be a bit insulted -.- I've always hated that about games. It's minor but just something that I hate. I want to see this game have the old fashion pick your username and if you don't like it pay $ to get a better one/make a new account (pretty much the same as handing over $ if it's a B2P/P2P system which it most likely will be) because I just think that picking your username is a HUGE decision in any community as those stick with you forever. For example in the P101C community I'm known as Technomage so whenever I play Pirates instead of being addressed by Jeremy my actual name/char name I'm known as Tech/Technomage because that's the name I made for myself. It's no different with any game and I feel it's just a minor thing in reality but something you gotta think of and I find it easier then getting mixed up with 1,000 Jeremy's in a game. 
     
    Idk this just bothered me to ask, as well as if we'll be forced to a character specific on the class/race/whatever we pick if that's how it is. Honestly I would also hate that, a huge part of a game is that originality behind your own character. Same thing as with the name that's what you're known/recognized with. Lets be honest in a PvP based game you just need that flare and originality. Plus I hate having to look like the ten to thousands of other elves or Jeremy's in the game along with possibly sharing a similar name. These minor but starting things also will take a huge role of first impressions of new members to the game as they might just decided off those 2 little things. "I already hate how this game is turning out and I haven't even finished getting the tutorial started". 
     
    Surprised also no one else brought this up yet being, yes a small topic that couldn't mean as much but also still important.

    I like this idea, one thing I was worried about was the whole endless conquering world thing if this was going to be like SB so instead of turning me away. You just pushed my 2 steps forward. So far I like it, I always wanted a game that takes that whole conquer and win into a reset style of a game. Just my style of a game if I had to walk outside of Wiz/Pirates and one thing I was depressed was for most campaign matches or so on most games are well time limited to 30 minutes, or an hour. But being able to have a solid campaign world you want to conquer but it seems like you'll be able to contact other campaign worlds or even go to them for resources, etc. (Still wasn't fully sure if this was the case, if it is extremely happy) But now everyone can not feel rushed or time limited but at the same time work and dedication w/ a lot of time will bring out the best results. Big guilds/clans ofc. 
     
    I'm digging it, not much more to be said. I like the idea of a timer using the calender, we've seen seasonal changes in games before but you took the most out of it. So props to you, can't wait for more information!

    orange got a reaction from jarlaxle in Shadowbane guilds going to dominate this game?   
    I just love how cocky the SB community is about this game. All I say is good luck because SB was like ages ago and ya died because of WoW so why would you try to recreate something that killed off its own player base? Obviously open world doesn't work as you don't draw in new players, it will forever be the Vets who own the game. That's just a recipe for failure. Why create a system like that, that had an instance where it legit killed off some of its players base. You have to make that mix where there are pens for the sheep to protect them against the pack of wolves. Now if this sheep decides to go out into the forest, let the wolves get it. But my point is they need to find a balance for where new players who join the game months after everyone is settled and guilds dominate, etc. But still a new group can come in, learn the game and dominate.  Open PvP just all together sounds bad from what you guys are looking for. 
     
    Community's like SB from what they sound like just looking at there posters, those don't last long. I have personal right hand experience on that. So just saying, you're getting a bit full of yourselves. But that's to expect from players like you.

    Hey folks,

     
    It's that time again!
     
    On the menu today we are serving:
     
    - The fourth installment in the "Banner Concepts" series. The inclusion of this scene is probably not huge surprise to anyone -- it's basically a "reverse shot" (and a prequel, I suppose) to the "Ramparts" image that we dropped last week. Internally, we refer to this image as the "Calling the Banners" image, for obvious reasons.
     

     
    - Next up is an example Fealty Chart.  This isn't a guild org chart -- we support guilds (and guild structures) but we've laid a different system on top of that, which ties player fealty directly to land ownership.   More on that system, and how it ties to siege conquest, will be coming soon. 
     

     
    - Lastly, presenting the 2/2 page of character creation -- in which a few more questions are answered.  In this one, you get a glimpse of the "Advantages" and "Disadvantages" system (which SB players will recognize as a direct descendent of the talents and traits system, only with more customization.)  As an interesting side note, we're actually in the process of going over these two pages (again!) right now, looking for ways to further streamline the interface.  Next time you see these screens, we'll likely have split it into 3 pages (to split appearance customization out as a separate step.)
     

     
    Hope you enjoy this update, and stay tuned -- we have a more substantial update coming later this week.

    orange got a reaction from dixiegirl in Can Solo be a Thing?   
    So there are always going to be those new players and people even who will come into this beta and want to play solo. Because lets be honest, it's the internet. We came on here to get AWAY from people or problems or whatever your thing is. But there is that section of Solo players. I mean I personally am in NZ timezone so unless they make AU, US, separate servers (I hope not) I'll most likely be playing during hours where only a few people will be on and most likely hoping off. Honestly that's fine by me because then I don't have to deal with getting asked to join a call/ts all the time. But I was wondering, do you think you could play this game and solo?
     
    I hope so personally but my situation would be like this TBH: I'm apart of a clan but I only get on for scheduled raids/clan battles/etc and help there and do my part. Other then that I farm, grind, rank/rep up or whatever the system is but by myself and only with friends if they're on and join me in what I need done or join them if I need something from what they're doing. Do you think I could survive off that in a game like this? I just wanna hear opinions.

    There are plenty of activities that can be accomplished through solo play. Unfortunately at this point I can't cite examples since we are still revealing the game and I wouldn't want to give it away. I can assure you though there was no meeting where we sat down and drew an X through the words solo play.

    Personally I agree, it looks like LoL artwork which I admire a lot TBH so IRDC if they took that style of it. But in an article I would like to stay away from negatives so early on. Maybe as the game progresses and we get a full blown look into it completely I'll start to add it negative points as well. 1st screenshot ever released, why look towards the negatives right away?

    01/13/15 - City Siege Concept

     

    For our second update, we have a concept by Lead Artist, Dave Greco. You may have seen a small sneak peak previously.

     

    This is actually the second image we are releasing from the "Banner Concepts" series. The first was the 'explosive rune', which you can find toward the bottom of the website homepage. 

     

    The goal of the series was to create a number of unique images, each of which capture a single moment of gameplay. These images were not intended to be generic; we built these scenes using our characters, in our environments, acting within the scope of our vision. A single Banner Concept is the end result of numerous ideas, discussions, illustrations and sketches compiled over the last year (or so) of pre-production.

     

    While each image was crafted to detail a single element of the Crowfall experience, the goal of the Series is to present a more complete picture.  By combining all of the Banners together, you, the community, should have a feeling for the focus, tone and the scope of the overall game .

     



     

     

     

    More to come...

    Screenshot #1: Character Creation 

    Since this is the first screenshot we're releasing of the game, we thought it would be fitting to make it a preview of character creation -- the first thing most players will encounter when playing the game.     Why show character creation first?  A few reasons:   - This a functional prototype of character creation (with actual 2D and 3D game assets), not just a mockup. The character (the Knight archetype) is a fully modeled and animated avatar.     - That character will give you a small taste of the Character art style.  Compare this character to our concepts, you can see that we're shooting for a fairly literal translation of the style.   - This shot shows off the initial class (archetype) selection options, exposing the wide array of base characters (archetypes)   - It also provides solid hints at the inner working of a handful of core systems: Combat, movement, skills, advancement and (of course) character creation / customization   - It showcases the user interface style.  As you can see, we're going for a streamlined and modern look -- emphasizing quick access to game information over the standard "parchment and leather" fare.   There is more to this one than meets the eye... the clues are there, for those with a solid design instinct and an eye for detail.      
     
    Happy hunting,   Todd ACE   P.S. btw, don't take any of these numbers as gospel.  Many of these values will change (probably have already) -- and in fact, the scale will even change -- as the various systems snap into focus.
