  1. 5.8?

    LOL... it was down 30 minutes ago. So now we can all have max level characters and kill each other. Fun. Z
  2. 5.8?

    That's down indefinitely. Z
  3. Is 5.8 Going Live on Live Today?

    Ah ok, I didn't notice that. Thanks, Z
  4. I've seen the patch notes from yesterday for 5.8, and that the test server is down indefinitely, but don't see an actual announcement anywhere... will 5.8 be live when the server comes back up today at 3:00? Z
  5. Is Release any closer

    Yeah but when we put out $ in 2015 BECAUSE they stated it would be in beta in 2016 and released in 2017, we expect that to happen or in many cases feel lied to and scammed, losing trust in the game and the developers. This is trust that in some people's eyes can never be regained, and it's evident by responses on YouTube videos and other gaming forums all over the web. If you put $ down on something else in 2015 because you wanted to get the first 2017's released and in 2019 you were still waiting you'd be screaming bloody murder. Saying they "have to lie" to get buy-in is pretty damn sad and a poor reflection on the entire industry.
  6. I bought in back in 2015 and come back every now and then, and was part of the test tonight and have to say I was disappointed as I have been in the past. I was able to play fine, but my first 75-90 minutes was spent running around doing absolutely nothing but try and find a fight. The map is layed out oddly and hard to read, can't be accessed while moving, and frankly WAY too big for an event like this. Even when I knew where some action was and I gated to the proper map by the time I ran for 10 minutes (NOT fun!) to get to the fighting it was over. I would have happily stopped to fight some mobs had there been any, but it seems like a world that is still lifeless and vast. Bigger is not better without any fast travel. Once I found combat it was still as sluggish and unresponsive as in the past. There's a delay between when I click a button and my character takes action, and my biggest complaint was healing. Why, after a fight is over, does it take 8-10 minutes to refresh from 50% of HP to full? I was not hungry, was in gathering mode, and even had spells to assist since I played a Cleric. Why can't we heal and jump right back in? I have the same opinion I've had every time I test the game. I love the EK/campaign concept and number of classes, as well as the incredible number of skill choices, etc.. It's probably the best I've seen in this way. However the combat is lackluster and everything feels slow. I can get over the older style graphics but feel like everything is in slow motion... which is SO disappointing, because like I said above I WANT to like this game. Hopefully things improve in the future... I'll test again as things move forward. Z
  7. I'm Just Confused

    Unfortunately, it's not very intuitive... having to swap back and forth from one tray to another... or two others, opening inventory keeping you from moving, sometimes you can access things, sometimes not... it's really not a 2018 type of UI. Having said that, you'll get used to it. Z
  8. Importing Properties

    Cool... thanks much! z
  9. Importing Properties

    In the login menu I am shown properties that I paid for years ago when I backed the game, and have the option to import them. If I do-so, I still have access to them later on after the wipe and such, correct? I would just like to play with them and see how they work. Z
  10. But can I use more than one tree at a time or do I need to use different characters? (I watched a video about this but don't totally get it) Z
  11. Thanks much! Does the test server have a way for us to level quickly? (never mind, I just saw something in the email about weapon racks) z
  12. I got an email about the snap-test tonight. I'm already testing on the server that's been up a while, but I got the impression from the email that the test tonight is on a different build. Would I be correct to assume that the link included in the email goes to a different download? If so, can I have both on my machine at the same time, and how can I tell the difference? (I just don't want to corrupt what I already have because I plan to spend some time in-game today) Thanks, Z
  13. Maybe I don't totally get the system yet but it seems that I have to choose from putting my points into combat skills or crafting... so is there a way to do both well, or not really? (or do I not understand the leveling yet?) Z
  14. Thanks SO much for this post... as someone who hasn't logged in for a year or so, it's a huge help! Z
  15. When will CF be released?

    Thanks for the welcome BarriaKarl, and for the thoughtful answers from Surelia and miraluna. Initially I was under the impression the game would already be released by now, and then it was changed to "beta in 2018" but that obviously isn't happening either so I figured I'd ask to see if there were people here who had done more research or had some inside insight. Just doing forum research as "Mr. Personality" suggests above results in more dates than I care to copy and paste, lol. Yeah a simple question did take a dark turn... every forum has its trolls, folks with an obvious lack of people skills, or who feel they need to lash out and bully strangers on the internet because their parents didn't let them have sugar on their cereal when they were kids. I just found one sooner than later. Anyway, I'll be patient and wait. Z
