    Seeing people banned for political banter is debilitating to the game imo. Jay  walking no matter how many times should not constitute the death penalty. If you get enough tickets ie drivers license sure they may take your license. But they do not ban you from going to the store .  We are consumers in crowfall . We have spent a ton more money than we would a regular game. 
        Ace has listened to the gaming community on the entire creation of the game. Accept where these forums are concerned. They ignore us in this instance . We have begged for more softer policy's and that has been rejected at this time. None of us feel that saying a simple thing such as soso guild "sux" should be a point and be the final straw on someones account. Ban them from the forum sure its your forum. In game  ? Their $1000.00 of dollars with no chance to recoup the loses is not what the player community desires. But, This is apparently not up for debate and they do not want or desire our input on this matter. So the choice's are.

    dolmar reacted to Sloppy in Item bloat   
    I missed some of the earlier rounds of testing so I don't know what happened.  But we need to be able to get rid of stuff.
    At a siege last week there was a bunch of balance guys, that literally filled their inventories with stacks of wilted scraps.  I don't know if this was a protest, an internal joke or some trick to lag out the server during the siege.  But just the fact that some dudes were willing to lose 50 stacks of this crap shows the need for that item to create value.
    So I really enjoy Noric's idea of sacrificing for a buff!  I even more enjoyed the original idea of trashing stuff for XP!  But eventually everyone will be maxxed out!

    dolmar reacted to Noric in Item bloat   
    Sacrifice pit is not dealing with all the extra white resources/trash. Ideas to deal with it. 
    A way for factions to "sacrifice" to the tribes, sending a strong force into zones mostly controlled by another faction.
    Sac to a god to buff faction controlled points (or even a low grade buff to players) for X time.  Guard group to patrol a local zone?
    Those options should not be cheap and easy, just a way for everyone to pool all the extra stuff together for something.(leader board entry?) I don't mean for this to be player A sacs 1000 points of items for X. More like faction A sacs 100,000 points of items, God/Tribe takes/uses all or part of it to do something.  
    Dont even need a complicated menu to chose what you are sacrificing for, at most you would just need a pit style item for tribes or gods. Effects would be semi-random or in the case of patrols they show up after a random amount of time. Dont need them being called in 5 min before a siege....

    The only inter-factional cooperation was kill the defending force. No point in fighting it out at the bane tree or out side the tree room....  I can tell you there was plenty of "friendly fire"

    dolmar reacted to blazzen in Tree of Life rooms are too small   
    I think the Trees of Life should be at ground level with space round them, similar to how the ToL's were in Shadowbane or the bind stones were in Darkfall. 
    We had two fights at the top of the keep last night. Won one, lost one, neither one was enjoyable. It's just a giant clusterfvck in the tree room.

    dolmar reacted to Remlap in Petition - Simple Fixing You Can Do Today!   
    Limiting content in a game with such scarce content by making it even scarcer would be a terrible decision for this game. So unfortunately these days it stands to be implemented, catering design this early on around a small handful of disgruntled and vocal players(compared to the amount that backed the kickstarter) is ludicrous. Further the legitimacy of the feedback on this thread is questionable at best, lots of new accounts are coming in and offering nothing but +1.
     
    The score system is fundamentally broken in this current iteration of it, however removing all of the small groups of peoples ability to have an impact on the game is nothing but a recipe for a ghost town. I'm not seeing very many people advocating that the current system is perfect or even good, but it at least allows for some constant impact and score changing by the majority of players. I sincerely question the motives of those trying to limit others ability to even play the game through the use of time gates.

    Another self-serving "contribution" (the OP), conveniently timed when the swing is against the "control trend".
    IMO, the original post does not contemplate a game improvement, merely an admission that now they have to do what everyone else has to do, instead of pack-roaming and wanting not to have to WORK for a win.
    What's really the problem? You run in packs of 2 groups (minimum) most of the time...how long does it take to flip a camp with 12 people? - LOL
     
    Lots of up voters...wonder which guild they are in mostly (already a biased petition with results nothing more than utterly useless) ..., must have lifted the "forum code of silence" from within.  
     
    This is more like...We aren't really winning this capping war...lets start a petition to change the rules to ones which suit us.
    We can see right through this and I hope ACE does to. There is movement at the station!
     
    PS.
    Has anyone published the siege videos of the last couple of days? Must have missed seeing them

    It's not who, it's what. 
    There are all sorts of other things that could have been suggested and have been in the past, (shorter cycle times for camps or, different capture mechanics based on killing/destruction) that won't cut out a significant portion of the games population.  The above suggestions favor one type of group, one type of play style, that frankly belongs in the dregs, not in faction play that is supposed to be by design more inclusive.  
    Dregs not having camp points, great.  Dregs having longer period windows on keeps and forts so large guilds can rally the troops, also great.  That is not what the factions are for, so I would prefer it if the people pining for the dregs don't try to convert the faction world into them. 
    Factions by nature are not as much play to win as dregs, so it's not factions fault or rules that a play to win team is burning themselves out trying to cram a square peg into a round hole.

    This. This. This. 

    I am probably a dirty casual because I have a job and a child. I'm OK with admitting that. 

    What I don't like seeing is WBs leading a petition and skewing the votes (at least, that's how it looks on the surface) to push for a change that would potentially alter the rules to better benefit their inherent organization. On top of it, my small group and I (and others like it) would have literally nothing to do but lag during siege fights and then go craft on week nights. And maybe get into a fort fight that would end up being just a laggy siege fight all over again. 

    Either standing in circles or standing by the fire waiting for your guild to lead something is still standing around. As casuals, we at least don't have that problem lol.

    The Hunger is the AAA publishing industry. The shattered worlds are what happenned after shadowbane got cancelled and the mmo boom busted and destroyed them all. The gods are aging and dying game developers. The crows are crowdfunders scavenging the remains of dead games to build an eternal one. The gods pit us against each other to supply them with resources required to build these worlds.

    Crowfall is a metaphor for the last 10 years of ACE's careers.
    Change my mind.

    Exactly the harshness that we are trying to avoid on the forums . Even if you do not care about the community , the game or its future. Others do that is why this is being debated. Anyone that is banned no matter the persons "most feel" should not be banned willy nilly . I see that you would only care if it comes to you and yours of course. Most in the community do not want any one banned for "banter" . Unless you are talking about a specific case? My statements are generalizing the forum rules ToS.

    This. This right here is my ideal plan. Will it happen? I sure hope so. Will it happen within the next update? Probably not, but I'm trying my best to get some more fun things out there to vary up buffs, procs, and make alchemy sexy again.
    I love the idea of transmuting stacks of things; I just don't know if it's doable at the moment. Let me do some more digging and see, but no promises.

    Just saying Why is Alchemy not been given the same treatment as food that requires 0 skill? All these buffs would normally be regulated to Alchemy in any other game. While im glad that more stuff is being added .. Why is alchemy the skill that is forgotten? You mind as well do away with the skill completely roll ambrosia into a food product and put philosopher stones in necromancy....
