    You can currently press W and steer with the mouse.
    Crowfall doesn't really have what you think of as the derogatory keyboard turners since our AD are not "slowly orient a direction" but rather "instant turn and run in a direction". The player who uses the keyboard effectively in Crowfall to instantly change direction in combination with primary attacks and reorienting their camera at the same time has better character control than those who rely solely on mouse steering and forward movement. Oh the irony!

    Darkboo reacted to ren in TEST FEEDBACK Friday and Sunday, Sept 25 & 27 Tests   
    What happens once your ticket count reaches zero? There were at least two testers last night who were already into single digits and were discussing rationing their testing time. I believe there were 1.5 games going on the West server and 0 on the East - seems a bit early to tell people to go away until the next milestone.

    (Edit: Ooops Sorry, I had missed the conversation already underway!)

    What blows my mind is that there have been at least 3 AAA mmos that I can recall that have launched in the last few years that did not implement or poorly implemented a queue system for launch day, and there were tears.

    Please work on a queue if you are starting to limit testing spots.  One of the most aggravating things gaming companies do is not having a queue and forcing users to spam their servers.

    Darkboo reacted to NostrusUK in FLASH TEST, Sept 15th, 9:30am CDT   
    Well the lag issue seems to have mostly cleared up - a few spikes here and there but nothing that can't be dealt with. Good to get some proper testing done. So what bugs did I find today?
    Loot bug - repeatedly after killing someone or coming across the aftermath of a battle, I was unable to loot corpses. Not even an empty loot container showed up. If this is working as intended, I do think we should get empty containers. Team chat - after the game starts, I have to Alt key to go between camera and mouse mode, then click on the chat bar. Certainly not ideal. And that was pretty much it, aside from realising how much I have to learn.

    Yeah, folks, sorry that last night's test was so bumpy.  
    We're diagnosing the problem right now; it felt (to me) like some kind of odd race condition where things are great up up to X players but as soon as you cross that threshold, performance gets worse exponentially with each additional user...
    ...but then again, I'm not an engineer.  We'll find out for certain with a bit of forensic analysis.
    As a word to the wise: keep in mind that there is only so much "artificial" testing we can do.  At some point, we can only find problems like this by subjecting the system to increased numbers of ACTUAL players, and looking for fracture points.
    It can be kind of frustrating... but it's also not unexpected.  
    You test it, you break it, you fix it.  Repeat.  That's the process.

    Also from a pure business standpoint it makes no sense.
    I can always pay more, but I can't go back in time and pay earlier.
    You still have an advantage for having paid early, because within the respective brackets pledge # reigns supreme.

    Bwahahaha, this cracked me up. Now, really, did we ever have had the same opinion? Well, i think i dimly remember a situation somewhen in march or april ... but i am not sure about this.
    Initially i thought the access would be graded by pledge-included test level, then pledge level, then ks/15. Pre-Alpha over Alpha 1. Emerald over Ruby. KS sapphire over 2015 sapphire.
    The fact hat i agree with you (that this would be common sense) and the fact that noone else seems to share this opinion, seems to lead to the conclusion: Andere Länder, andere Sitten! xD
    I was less then not happy with the actual arrangement. I expected to already be in the tests and to make videos and and and. I am not. ~shrug~
    My final thought was: Well, it is a nice thing that lower pledge levels will have a good chance to be in the tests. This will enthral more people from the medium pledge levels. Thats good. Those with the higher pledges are already bound, hum?
    And: It is much easier for ACE. Categorizing more complicated will need more time. Saving this time is good for the game.
    I was so in comfort in the end. End now you show me that this is just a Andere Länder thing. Dang you!

    This statement holds true with a lot of possible variations.
    If high end backers only got a more colorful forum badge, it would sitll be true.
    Noone here is saying they should go back on their word and not reward earlier backers.
    I'm saying they should prioritize money on time sensitive rewards and then within those brackets reward the earlier backers.
    They'd still be doing the exact same thing they promised with the potential to earn more money. Everyone should know that early/alpha/beta access is a huge factor for what pledge level people chose.
    We're looking at a buy2play game WITH voluntary monthly subscription AND a cash shop.
    Be realistic for a second, will ya...
    They're using all emans possible to generate money and I'm not faulting them for it, but please don't act like they're some kinda saints that only do this out of kindness in their hearts.
    More money is always better. Especially when they can earn that money by doing something they previously promised in a slightly altered way.

    Thx for stating the obvious. We already know how it's currently being handled.
    I'm saying that this method can be improved upon and maybe further incentivise people to spend more money in case they want priority within their respective bracket.
    ACE still is a business. They need money. Accusations of money grabbing in respects to prioritizing high end backers shows a lack of understanding of how the world works, sorry

    by rewarding money over "loyalty"?
    can't make a game with loyalty, you need money.
    Pledge level should have precedence over pledge number. You can still reward lower pledge numbers within the corresponding pools. This is not exclusive to the current test. This should be the case for all rewards that are time sensitive.
