    Waikikamukau got a reaction from valor in Ask The Team (Personal Questions) V2!   
    I haven't read any of the GoT books or watched the show.  Too busy reading Valor's posts and watching Crowns and Crows....

    Rangers do not wait on good weather. Rangers do not wait for a bright, sunshiney day.  Awww naw, Rangers are trained to operate in the worst possible conditions and use said conditions against their enemies.
     
    Rangers lead the way.

    Love the looks.  Absolutely fabulous concepts.
     
    As a complete non-artist, merely looking at the aesthetics, I would say the transition from spring to summer to fall is great but the winter doesn't seem...enough to convey the menace of the most dangerous transformation of the creature.  There are sizeable transformations (color, deterioration, crystal progression) from spring to summer to fall but winter is a more subtle final push than the previous.  Something more skeletal...bone white I think would be incredible and make it pop a bit more.  Again this is the impression of a non-artist eye.  So feel free to tell me to shut it.

    I do feel for you on this, Gordon.  I am...exceedingly...aware of PCI DSS 3.0 compliance especially with card not present transactions.  It's a crazy balancing act between merchant, processor and bank over who bears responsibility if something goes wrong.  I'm in the process of assisting with its implementation in the hotel/gaming industry in Las Vegas.
     
    I did open a ticket both with ACE and Payplus when my 'errors' happened.  Payplus' answer: change the e-mail address associated with my Crowfall account.  Seriously wrong answer.  Let's inconvenience the customer when they are trying to initiate a transaction that will result in revenue for the third party processor's customer.  Most people take the path of least resistance: well if you're making me jump through hoops to give you money, I'll just take my money somewhere else.  This results in lost revenue due to no fault of the merchant but the processor completely creating the situation all in an attempt to avoid responsibility if, and that's a big if, something goes awry.
     
    Luckily, ACE has some accommodating support personnel which allowed me to a) purchase a KS Amber and layaway a KS Emerald upgrade via direct fund transfer utilizing PayPal.
     
    Payplus, not ACE, needs to re-evaluate their policies and develop new procedures in order to verify e-mail addresses.  We already have to put in CVV2 codes, correct billing addresses, zip codes, etc. to purchase goods online, I think they could find a better solution than 'you need to change the email address you associated with your Crowfall account'.

    You mean like real life hunting?  Picking off the weaker, slower of the group?  Using tactics that have proven effective for predators since the dawn of time seems to be an obvious choice.
     
    Why will this ruin the game?  Because you have a chance of losing?  The group with more "x" is always a danger (players, damage, tanks, AoE, snares, slows, etc).  There are, of course, going to be flavor of the month builds that will be crazy effective and will need to be rebalanced by ACE.  From the looks of where ACE is going with character creation/development, there are going to be trade-offs for everything.  Sure, you can be super fast flitting around the battlefield but this may result in you having significantly less health or damage or range or whathaveyou.

    Can I just say, I have not ever had a harder time trying to give someone money.
    Tried paypal - ERROR Tried mastercard - ERROR Tried diff browser - ERROR Tried enabling 2FA - ERROR (also could only get that set up by using a QR scanner) Tried checking out from my phone - ERROR Tried disabling anti-virus - ERROR Emailed payplus, they told me I needed to change my email address... Seriously?  - ERROR Emailed payplus a second time, they made "other changes to my account" - SUCCESS The bit about needing to change my email address is just mind blowing.  I've had this email address for years, used it to purchase from 100's of sites and have never had a single issue.  I'm a programmer for a large e-commerce corporation.  I've built payment systems, and I've never ever seen anything that would make an email address stop a payment from capturing.
     
    I don't know what kind of operation they are running over there but.... well I'm not allowed to swear in the forums so I'll just leave it at that.
