    adreu reacted to Pann in A little something   
    We know everyone is waiting with baited breath for the War of the Gods to be released on TEST. In lieu of that, we wanted to share a couple of things with you for theorycrafting and discussion. 

    As you explore the Crowfall worlds, you’ll spot these intriguing podiums here and there. When you spot one, the “F to Interact” option appears. Interacting with them will give you a buff of some kind. 
    This particular one is next to the Tree of Life in the Sun Temple. When you interact with it, your food meter (aka “chicken ticker”) will be completely filled. This is a wonderful quality of life benefit!

    Someone recently asked me how saddles slot into the new power bar, so I wanted to give you a peek at the slick revisions were made. On the right end, you’ll see the Mount icon (hit O to summon) and the Recall icon (Alt+P will take you back to the temple). 
    Thank you, thank you, thank you for your patience!

    adreu reacted to jtoddcoleman in Update on getting 5.110 to Test Server   
    Yeah, I know.  It's frustrating.  It's frustrating for us, too.
    Here's the deal: we have a build, and it hung at the 99.99% bar.  There is one issue that has proven to be incredibly elusive, and it's causing a massive lag on the server.  Overall, the game feels pretty good.  We're still working through power-related bugs -- all the underlying system changes we made this milestone have caused a crop of them, but frankly that's expected and we're working them through at a good clip -- but I'd be OK with putting those in front of you.  Overall, I think combat is in a much better shape than 5.100, even with these new issues.
    But the server performance issue is a killer.  Any kind of reasonable player load (and I have reason to suspect we'll hit that) causes this problem to emerge, and it makes the game unplayable.  Which would be even more frustrating.
    As to "when", the truth is, we don't know.  We have top men working on it.  ("Top. Men.")  We continue to be in a day-for-day hold pattern until we get this issue resolved.
    Thanks for your patience.  Hopefully it'll be soon.

    Hey folks,
    Unfortunately, as the title says, today is not the day that 5.110 goes to Test.  
    We hoped it would be. We wanted it to be. We pushed really hard to make it the day. 
    This was a crazy week. On Tuesday, Gordon and I decided to institute a mandatory work-from-home policy for the entire team. That meant a quick scramble to get everyone equipped with machines and webcams and microphones and, in some cases, even desks at home. We started sending people home in waves.  By Friday, the entire team was up and running in sixty different locations, with access to slack and email and source code and bug tracking and server monitoring and everything else. This morning we were even able to do company stand-ups like normal, only via webcam. so, really, not like normal at all.
    In spite of that, we made a valiant run to get you a build, because we know you guys are chomping at the bit to test 5.110 (and believe me, we are, too!) But after our end-of-the-day playtest, we took a hard look at the remaining critical issues and decided it just wasn't ready.
    So: we're not quite there, but we are so, so close. Thanks again for your patience, but -- as always -- quality is paramount.  We appreciate your understanding.
    Todd & Gordon & the (widely scattered) team at ACE

    Interesting article on mmorpg concerning New World & its final backtracking before launch, after all those years of promoting a PVP centred mmo sandbox.  The article goes on to state other mmo's that have come up with solutions, instead of giving up.  In particular, Crowfall is mentioned positively as a solution.  Click here to read the article:  New World, Old Problems

    Sorry but they won't remove things only because you don't like them.
    Crafting/Survival aspects of the game are in since Kickstarter, @thomasblair is one who take part of the crafting system in SWG, we tested the crafting/harvesting systems for 3 years + from now and because you just got into the game you are asking how we can remove it? I must say 🤣
    It seems you only focused your attention on one part of the game and clicked the buy button without knowing all the other stuff around it, it's not their fault that you made this mistake.
    The leveling part is way easy and if you don't want to craft just be part of a guild and have Crafters working for you, simple as that.

    You would be surprised at the amount of companies who don't give any kind of reward for their beta and alpha testers. Really nice to receive a reward for testing.

    Most people are experimenting with builds at the moment, as well as waiting for a more substantial patch, which should precede Beta & give a better indication of what will finally make it to Beta & Live.  True, there needs to be more happening with pvp.  Hopefully, that will pick up once we know what we can substantially focus on.

    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,
