    Hello my fellow Crowfall enthusiasts. I go by TacoTamer in most of the online games I've played over the years. I'm always looking for some friendly and fair competition in an MMO. MMO's have always been a favorite type of game for me because of the great friends and occasional enemies you can make. I've played Maplestory Europe for a long time in my early highschool years   and then picked up Archeage a bit after release, thoroughly enjoyed being the friendly neighborhood pirate (unless I caught you out in the sea)! Once I first heard of Crowfall I knew this would be the next great game for me and others to really enjoy, I've been a bit too busy to keep up with the forums as I normally just play the games, but since we do not have that option yet I will try to pop in every now and then to see our progress! Hope to see you all around in upcoming tests and the Dregs!

    TacoTamer reacted to Herithius in Crowfall Character Art (Group)   
    Hi everyone. Over a month ago I posted a sketch of artwork I was comissioning to help design a fan site. This is how this particular piece of art turned out. Have to say I'm pleasantly surprised!
     
     

     
    This was the original sketch...
     

     
     
    Part of this artwork (and a LOT more), is part of a new guild/fan site I launched today for Crowfall.  Everyone is warmly welcomed to visit. It contains the collaboration of several artists, including Lesmana (best known for doing the official Shadowbane comic series), who did a mini comic series for our community. Of note, the work attached is not drawn by Lesmana.

    TacoTamer reacted to Scree in Currency in Crowfall: Why I Don't Want To Be a Goat Trader   
    Currency in Crowfall: Why I Don’t Want To Be a Goat Trader 
     
    I’d like to take a brief moment to throw out some consideration towards the design of Crowfall not having any established in-game currency. I’m sure there are plenty of unique rational reasons for wanting to stand apart from other games and not implementing an in-game currency. I’d almost support it if it wasn’t just seemingly a design choice meant to make the games economy stand out from the crowd.
     
    There is a very real economic reason for a currency based economy versus a bartering based economy like the one presented in Crowfall. Instead of paraphrasing, I’ll just use a quick example/quote I found as to why currency is so beneficial;
     
     

     
    Why is this important in a game? It might not be. I can’t think of a modern or historical MMO that didn’t have some sort of currency built into it. Is the decision to leave up the evolution of a currency in Crowfall merely meant to be a test? I hope not. There is a reason we evolved beyond cavemen to adopt “money”.
     
     
    So what are the inherent risks to a bartering system? The largest that I can see is probably the most important from a unique perspective. Take a look at these headlines;
     
    Massive ‘EVE Online’ Battle Could Cost $300,000 in Real Money EVE Online Player Loses A Spaceship Worth Approximately $9,000  
    Those are pretty interesting aren't they? Definitely might grab the attention of someone wondering how something as innocent as a video game could have the potential to be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. There’s a reason the press and other players are able to determine this value (fictional example math); 
     
    An expensive ship is worth… lets say 5 Trillion ISK (in-game EVE Currency).  You can buy In-Game Subscription Time (Called PLEX) for 700 Million ISK. 5 Trillion ISK / 700 Million ISK = ~7142  7142 * $20 (USD value of PLEX) = The real USD value of internet spaceship $142,857  
    See how that math works? It’s only possible because of the unifying value of the in-game ISK (Interstellar Space Kredits? I think) currency.
     
    Try this example and apply Crowfall’s current design to the formula. Substitute a random amount of Goats, Wood, Stone, Iron and Food for ISK. Now let anyone come up with what they believe is the estimated value of those items in exchange for a VIP membership. How do you come to an agreed on value of that VIP? Every person might value a goat differently than someone else? Maybe I live in goat central and they breed like rabbits. They’d be worth less to me. Maybe I live in player country and they eat goats as candy. Might be worth more to that guy right? That’s the inherent problem with a bartering system.
     
    Some of you crafters may be applying this to your fantasy world of 24/7 crafting you envision yourself getting into. We already know from a recentish news release that we are going to have vendors in the form of “thralls” helping us sell goods. Explain to me how exactly that’s going to work. Are you going to list your Sword of Never Ending Death for 5 goats and a log? Really?
     
    At a certain point all of this bartering novelty will wear off and quickly will become tedious. I don’t want to have to deal with a middle man to exchange my raw resources into something tradable with a merchant. Nor do I want to get ripped off because one merchant values something that isn’t easily convertible into something I actually have to trade. If I have to convert my goats into iron and then again into wood, just because you make bows … when does it start to become a problem for the seller as much as it is for the buyer to facilitate these transactions?
     
    Crowfall has a lot of great ideas, but lacking in a central currency is not one of them. Imagine the potential headlines that could be garnered on a server wide-basis when real life dollar values can be assigned to what was generated or destroyed in a campaign. Imagine how much easier commerce could be in the world, when resources and final products could have a quantifiable value assigned to them.
     
    Let’s pray the developers (and you players claiming this is a great system) realize how untenable this situation is in the long run for the average casual player and hope it in encourages them to incorporate a currency everyone can deal in.
