  1. Disciplines (and Passives) were mentioned in our last ACE Q&A. What are your thoughts on the changes Blair spoke about?
  2. You can either fill out the Influencer form or drop me an email - community@crowfall.com. Happy to take a look at your site and see how we can collaborate.
  3. Sharpen your wits and your axes! Decapathon 2 is set for October 29 - November 5, 2019. FULL STORY
  4. FYI - After the stream, I chatted with Blair about doing a write-up on the Discipline changes. He's in the middle of some high-priority work this week, but hopes to have a first draft done sometime next week. Stay tuned for that!
  5. The spoils of war aren't always about gold (though gold is generally a very good incentive). For many, securing a prestigious place in history is equally important. The history of Crowfall is your story. We want to help preserve it through War Stories. There are a number of ways to tell your story: through videos, gifs, screenshots and battle reports. You can then share them on Twitter (with the hashtags #crowfallgame and #warstories) or the Crowfall forums.
  6. I wanted to let ya'll know that DebySue is carefully combing through the survey results. Your responses have been very helpful and we appreciate the time you spent sharing your feedback with us.
  7. Mark your calendar: the ACE Q&A for October is set for Tuesday, October 15, at 11 am CDT on https://www.twitch.tv/crowfallgame
  8. Crowlinks can be used to purchase starter packs at the time of registration only. They can't be applied to an existing crowfall.com account. Your Crowlink is "crowfall.com/join/USERNAME" (so, in your case, crowfall.com/join/Zislatik). Each person you refer who registers using your Crowlink will receive 10% off purchase of any starter pack purchased.
  9. UPDATE 10-3: After reading comments and reviewing the poll results, there are no wipes planned -- neither skills only or complete wipe -- ahead of the War of the Gods. Big thank-you to all who participated in the conversations.
  10. Heads up: From time to time, ArtCraft sends surveys to our backers, so we want to give notice that we have sent out a survey to some members of our testing community. Recipients are a random selection from among those who have been actively participating in playtesting. In accordance with our Privacy Policy, the information given to us in the survey is for ArtCraf’s use only and will not be shared with a third party.
  11. Cranking it up higher than a 3% speed increase (as it is now) is not a possibility at this time.
  12. Hearing you loud and clear that you don't like the poll. I talked with Todd and QA about our options. As Todd mentioned during the stream, we *must* do a full wipe with 5.11. For that reason, we don't want to do one now; it's not cool to do two full wipes back-to-back like that. As far as doing a passive skill wipe and then adjusting the training speed, we can set it at a 3% speed increase again, but we aren't able to tweak that number. (Doing so would require some backend work and those take attention away from the actual development of the game).
  13. UPDATE 10-3: After reading comments and reviewing the poll results, there are no wipes planned -- neither skills only or complete wipe -- ahead of the War of the Gods. Big thank-you to all who participated in the conversations. -------- During the ACE Q&A for September live stream, Todd spoke about the possibility of doing a passive skill tree wipe. (The segment begins at the 19:30 mark). As Todd stated, passive training has been running for quite some time now, at an accelerated pace. Simply bumping everyone up to max levels isn't an option. That would require engineering time that we don't want to divert from development of the game itself. Note that this would be passive skills only. The wipe would not include characters, Eternal Kingdoms or banks. Please vote and leave comments in the thread if you so choose.
  14. "We’ll be working on this milestone through the end of the year and launch [alpha] in early 2020." Read the full interview with J. Todd Coleman on Ten Ton Hammer. https://bit.ly/2m5JLq7
  15. This is a standard campaign, not a Trial of the Gods. Therefore, there are no special awards. We said from the beginning that we wanted to offer a variety of campaign types, win conditions, Imports/Exports, etc. Based on feedback from our community, now seemed like a good time to start adjusting those dials a bit. As always, we'll be watching carefully for your feedback once you've had a chance to play under this ruleset.

  18. Thanks for the heads up. I'll tell the web wizards.
  19. Join us Thursday, September 26, at 10:30 am CDT for the ACE Q&A for September live stream. FULL STORY * UPDATE: Please note the new start time. Traditionally, our streams have started at 11 am CDT, but we need to start a little earlier for this one.
  20. On it! Thanks for the reminder!
  21. Shutting this down because it's devolved into the opposite of a constructive conversation.
  22. From the Terms and Conditions: 24.4. IN ADDITION TO THE FOREGOING, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT, EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE SET FORTH UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, YOU WILL NOT BE REFUNDED, RECEIVE MONEY, OR BE OTHERWISE COMPENSATED FOR UNUSED VIRTUAL CURRENCY OR VIRTUAL GOODS WHEN AN ACCOUNT IS CLOSED, WHETHER SUCH CLOSURE WAS VOLUNTARY OR INVOLUNTARY. A forum warning point goes away after 30 days. If you receive multiple warnings in close succession, those points can accrue to the level that you will be suspended. We always let people know when they are close to the danger zone. Warnings for in-game actions do not go away. As stated, it takes something drastic to get a warning for something in-game, so the punishment is severe. An exploit is using the game in a way that's not intended and/or gives the user an unfair advantage.
  23. The Rules of Conduct have three parts: General, Forum and In-Game. The In-Game rules are intentionally lenient in comparison with the forum rules, allowing for players to be more aggressive. Still, there are some actions that simply won’t be tolerated, chief among those the use of hate speech threats of real-life violence. Based on some recent player feedback, Gordon, Jack and I sat down and reviewed our warnings/suspension process for infractions of the in-game rules. Since we three are the ones who handle disciplinary actions, we wanted to be sure that we were totally aligned in order to deliver fair and consistent punishment. Here is the system we have in place for forum warnings and will continue to follow: WARNING POINTS – ACTION 1 – No action (“verbal” warning) 2 – 24-hour forum suspension 3 – One-week forum suspension 4 – Permanent suspension from the forums and the game The reason why game accounts are also affected by permanent suspensions is from Gordon’s expansive experience in the video game industry that’s shown him that players who can’t behave on the forums don’t make for good “MMO citizens” in general and should be removed from the community all-together. After a 90-day cool-down period, players under permanent suspension may contact support@crowfall.com to request an appeal. When an appeal is granted, it is under the condition that any further infractions of the rules by the user (either forum or in-game related) will immediately result in a final, irrevocable suspension of the forum and game accounts. Furthermore, since trouble is caused by a user, not an account, all accounts linked to that user will be affected by the suspension. Since the in-game rules are more lenient, the penalty for crossing the line is more severe. No elements of speech related to race, ethnicity, religion, country of origin and/or lifestyle preference are allowed in-game. If any of these behaviors/actions can be reasonably seen to be directed or intended outside of the in-game role playing context, the Rules of Conduct will apply. All other prohibited behaviors, such as using exploits or making real world threats (as noted in the General Rules of Conduct) are still considered actionable offenses and may result in disciplinary action against your game account. We make a distinction between “general” and “targeted” behavior. “General” is when a statement is not directed at a specific person or group while “targeted” comments are clearly directed toward a specific person or group. Note that these are the minimum penalties; the severity of the situation may result in more harsh punishment. GENERAL HATE SPEECH – ACTION First-time offender – 7-day suspension Second-time offender – 30-day suspension Third-time offender – Permanent suspension TARGETED HATE SPEECH – ACTION First-time offender – 30-day suspension Second-time offender – Permanent suspension The offense count is comprehensive, meaning that a user who has been suspended for seven days is a “first time offender” and will receive the “second time offender” punishment for any subsequent infractions of the rules. REAL-WORLD THREATS (INCLUDING DOXING) - Permanent suspension Holler if you have questions. I'll do my best to answer them.
  24. I pinged the Web Wizards yesterday to nudge this back on the radar.
