    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 play2crush.com website launched. I've been waiting over 5 years for this. For better or worse I hope to see you all on July 6th.

    Hear Ye! Hear Ye!
    Come one, come all! And let me ask you a question, “Do you hear the whispers of D’Orion?”
     
    Gaea has been slain! Arkon has been denied Justice! Kane roams Unpunished! 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! We shall once again take up arms for his Conquest! We shall bring Glory, Wealth, and Power to him with the skulls of his enemies!
     
    But we Knights can’t do it alone! We call upon experienced and mature individuals to join our ranks! If you seek to mete out Arkon’s Rage, Join Us! If you seek to extinguish Kane’s lament, Join Us. If you desire to see D’Orion sit upon Yeamir’s back, JOIN US! Under the leadership of coolster50 and cremdalacrem, we shall take what is D’Orion’s!
     
    The Wild Hunt is near…. Will you be Hunter, or hunted?

    blazzen reacted to cyjax in Mortal Online 2 vs. Crowfall?   
    MO2 is badass! If you could zoom out during melee combat Last Oasis style it would be my top pick for most promising sandbox mmo.  I personally like the FPS combat, found their minimalistic approach to magic effects and directional combat to be pretty fun and certainly scales up really well.  There were a few battles with over 120 players on screen and most people maintained 50+ FPS with little to no server queue issues.  I'll definitely be playing MO2 once there are territory battles and keeps to fight over.  The world is Darkfall massive too, ran with a group of buddies out to Jungle Camp on foot and it took literally 3 hours to find the damn place.  Next to Ark I've not experienced a more immersive game world.  One of my biggest gripes with Crowfall is their world design, it feels like a damn paintball field compared to other Sandbox mmo worlds.

    I don't follow Lost Ark but Ashes won't be out for a while and is faction based. The OLD New World (with FFA PVP, Full Loot, Free City Building, No Instances) would've been a direct competitor to Crowfall for the hardcore PVP niche. I know because I left Crowfall to play it from Oct 2018 - July 2019. Unfortunately NW went mass market and it no longer has a hardcore PVP focus. It's an ESO copy at best. Great if you like that sort of thing but it's not filling the hardcore PVP niche.
    Probably the next closest thing to Crowfall in this hardcore PVP niche genre that is coming out anytime soon is Mortal Online 2.

    What other MMORPG's with a hardcore PVP focus are there? I'm seriously asking, because I think I've played them all, and I keep coming back to Crowfall. 
    Eve Online = spreadsheet combat
    Albion = cell phone game with 1997 click to move combat
    Conqueror's Blade = okay, but has a bad cash shop and no open world
    New World = gutted their PVP ruleset
    Last Oasis = no longer an MMO
    Darkfall Rise of Agon = no population
    Mortal Online 2 = has some promise but won't be good for a while
    Star Citizen = will be fun to play when it comes out in 2050.
    I'm probably forgetting some other forgettable titles but you get the picture. Crowfall isn't trying to directly compete with the WoW's of the world they're trying to fill a niche that needs filling which is hardcore PVP MMORPG. If there was something that filled that niche better, I would be playing that instead. Simple as that. In fact I've taken several breaks throughout Crowfall's development to try out many of the games listed above. But I always end up back here.

    blazzen reacted to SirEmery in 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 will likely be crowded with all the new players hopping into the game. We could reduce some congestion by simply not forcing the old players to do the crafter grind again. The 
    3. People are already prepared for a long grind that isn't very fun. How about we allow those people to jump into the fun part of the game immediately instead of making them work on a second job? Work/life balance is hard enough with a fulltime job without having Crowfall become a second one. 
    4. People did quit the game over the difficulty of the grind. We shouldn't put them through that again. No one wants them to quit the game forever after a terrible grind. Player retention is something we can all get behind. 
    So before you go telling your guildmates to get back to hitting rocks. Give this post a like and share with ACE why -you- don't want a wipe on release. Lets bring the community together on this one and send a clear message to ACE.
    Thanks for taking the time to read my post and have a good one. Good luck pleasing the gods! May your enemies fall before you!

    blazzen got a reaction from Oaths in FEEDBACK: Bring Back Equipment Dropping.   
    As much as I'd like equipped item loot in Crowfall I just don't know that the game was designed with it in mind.
    We've gone over the easy come, easy go thing a million times. We've gone over the lack of guild banks and storage. We've gone over the lack of a real auction house. All of these things are needed for full loot.
    Another angle I considered recently was that the amount of deaths people take in Crowfall is insane compared to PVP games with full loot. 
    There's people dying 100+ times in a week campaign. I doubt I died 100 times in a given YEAR in Darkfall (or Darkfall 2 aka. DFUW). 
    Crowfall is closer to an ESO Cyrodil or GW2 WvW in the pacing of it's PVP. I took a look at the size of the DFUW map vs. Crowfall and DFUW map is about the equivalent of 100 Crowfall zones. There's a lot more constant action in Crowfall whereas Darkfall was much more sparse. But anytime you increase the map size in Crowfall people complain about not finding fights.
    Despite having equipped item loot in the kickstarter I don't think the design decisions they've made overall are conducive to equipped item loot. It could still be done but not without significant changes still.

    I agree Blazzen and that about sums it up... There is nothing else out there large group PvP oriented.
    I might add whether success or failure, starting on July 6th the best 60 days anyone will ever have in Crowfall is here. My advice to everyone is to suit up and take advantage of what opportunity is available. Provide me content and I will provide it to you in return.
    Heads will roll... I would hate to see some of you miss out because your panties are all twisted up thanks to not getting the pony you were promised.
