First, let me say that this saddens me. The Crowfall community is richer with -V- in it. With that being said, I understand your frustrations and in a lot of areas, share them. There are certainly areas which need improvement and assistance. Crafting is too complex, cumbersome and interdependent IMHO. WarTribe gear, at least early on, is too strong in comparison to crafted weapons and armor. AoEs are too powerful and there are numerous promotion classes that are ineffectual. With that being said, I also see the Devs listening to our concerns and making adjustments. The pig claiming alerts are certainly a step in the right direction and I truly believe that the Divine Favor cards are becoming more and more pvp focused. The framework that ACE has created provides a foundation for a game that I still believe will live up to the promise and excitement we felt back in Kickstarter. Taking a break until Beta sounds like a solid plan. I look forward to your spirited return.
