    Not a place for "stuffed shirts" or the politically sensitive. If you're into that kind of thing I can PM you some recommendations! We've got some really good peeps!

    To catch up with the history here, since I'm newer, I've been watching through all the videos on the Crowfall Youtube channel, form older to more recent. It's really been fascinating to see how much has changed over the years of development.

    dolmar got a reaction from JamesGoblin in Rising Challenge: Moving From Live To Test   
    Is anyone playing on live at this time? Cause last I seen it was like 5 people on live tops? Its kinda a confusing embarrassment . I understand trying to shuffle people to the populated areas "Test" but dunno this is the way to do it. Possibly just bring down the live server until you feel Test is done cooking . ?

    It’s exciting to see how many new players are entering the Throne War each day (remember, only Backers have the ability to join and play now - once we hit Closed Beta registered players will be invited to join and play by Beta group based on when you registered). We know that getting started can sometimes be confusing particularly when there are two servers to choose from (see “Choosing your Crowfall server”) that each offer a different gameplay experience. 
    LIVE SERVER: THE ADVENTURE STARTS HERE
    Our recommendation is for new Crows to first wet your beaks in the LIVE test environment. Here you’ll find the content from our previous update, The Fortunes of War (5.100), offering a smoother, more predictable gameplay experience that’s had the benefit of months of playtesting by the Crowfall community. The Getting Battle Ready guide will help you advance at your own pace and get familiar with the cool powers and skills your character can acquire and master!
    TRANSITION TO TEST
    When you’ve attained or passed level 10 and you have an understanding of the basic gameplay mechanics used to move, interact and fight in Crowfall, you’ll be ready to install the TEST game client and jump confidently into the new, but still familiar, War of the Gods (5.110) gameplay update. War of the Gods includes the Dregs ruleset, supporting Guild vs. Guild campaign wars, a new Class, the Frostweaver, and significant UI enhancements. 
    Once you’ve mastered the God’s Reach starting area and hit level 15, you’ll be ready for the Infected world, where you will get your first taste of PVP and the ability to earn and collect higher quality rewards and resources! (There is no looting in Infected.) At level 20, you can enter the Dregs. In the Dregs you will experience a world dedicated to intensely competitive guild vs guild PVP wars sure to get your adrenaline pumping.
    Moving from the LIVE to the TEST server is a great way to continue to build your knowledge and expertise in Crowfall. It is also a good way to continue to meet the Crow community and connect with other players - a key to success in Crowfall! 
    QUICK TIP: On both LIVE and TEST, after creating your character, immediately begin training your Passive Skills. You can do this from the Game Lobby, which is also where you will select the game world you want to enter -- Eternal Kingdom (personal player housing), God’s Reach (a safe haven for new players) or one of the Campaign Worlds (Infected or Dregs - as available).

    In my opinion, it doesn't make any sense to recommend for new players to familiarize themselves with obsolete gameplay mechanics (e.g. the survival tray system) or old game graphics at this very moment. "Smoother and more predictable gameplay experience" just isn't a valid argument with a development gap between Live and Test environment this big.
    It's not like the Test server has major downtimes from constant patching that would lead to an inferior gameplay experience.
    In fact, New players ask why the (live client) servers are empty and get directed to the Test environment client on a daily basis.
    I really think you should temporarily direct new players to the TEST environment until you transition the 5.110 build to the Live client. That would almost certainly produce less confusion than that announcement.

    Also, I am curious how attaining or passing level 10 will give you any insight into the basic gameplay mechanics. You will find yourself with roughly two abilities on your hotbar and have killed about seven mobs. But hopefully people haven't noticed the survival tray before they transition to the test environment :)

    My thoughts exactly. I'm honestly baffeled ... literally dumbfounded at the disconnect....

    As far as the original post, I have this to say...At this point, to be honest, given lack of updates, dev interaction, and with no real direction of any kind regarding any semblance of community development or meaningful involvement.... after five years.. to see this post?!.... You seem ... lost frankly. You scream, by this post. that you do not even remotely know the game you wish to "promote" (if you can even use that term given the collective effort) otr the community invested.

    I'm honestly not trying to be rude here, but i have never seen such a lackluster job by a project this far along in development. Hire someone that plays the game.. please. 

    I don't want warning points please (or a ban)... but this is horrible.. honestly.

    Delete topic please and start over.

    Some new players that are joining my guild, told me that if I haven't recruited them and passed a basic guide, they will ask for a refund. This on the TEST server, imagine a player entering LIVE and then going to TEST, with a difference that exists between servers.

    Honestly, I've been baffled by the fact that the LIVE client is even active. I have to agree that this is a confusing post and set of guidelines.

    I've seen a lot of comments over the years from devs/companies that make me scratch my head and this is definitely up there.
    Experiencing Live currently, including passive training, seems to offer zero value that can't be experienced on Test. Playing an outdated, "soon" to be wiped, even more empty server then Test makes no sense to me.

    This thread suggest a way to approach the development state of Crowfall starting with LIVE environment and then focusing in TEST.
    Players more expert than me pointed out how this approach is possibly flawed.
    Meanwhile I figure the expectation new players are going to spend meaningful time in LIVE means 5.11* is not going to be deployed in LIVE for a meaningful amount of time (months?). 

    We are NOT expecting players moving from LIVE to TEST, we are expecting features moving from TEST to LIVE.
    That's all.

    A lot of people are in a holding pattern as you cant even get runes at this time. Many things are currently broken . I think they are pushing some serious updates "hopefully".

    Or.. you could look at it as a way to get people in to get a "first look" and start setting up their EKs.... or you could just subscribe to "dull"

    This. Even if the world is not ready, allowing people to start training (I have seven accounts), log into an ek, look over the new changes, log in a Frostweaver and bacically just hooligan around would not change expectations or deliver a "broken launch".

    If they are willling to spin up EKs and training i see no real harm. The regular worlds are dead.

    There is nothing to do during the night . So if you do not play at the active times then the game is dead and boring. The map and siege schedules were designed by Anglemar and Blazzen so of course they support it. IMO Ace caved to the -W- since balance streams and makes the most videos. It saves them on advertisement. Just my two cents.. uXa will be back.
