  1. Having the game devolve into 2 megazergs is kind of their goal and I can see why. In order for the campaign to end, somebody has to win. The difference is that having 2 megazergs is way better than having 1 and not even standing a chance at winning.
  2. I think in the Dregs, that process is going to happen by attrition. It happened the exact same way in Shadowbane. It was hundreds of stand alone guilds vying for control of small areas until people realized there was a benefit in creating alliances with others (whether it be for keep defense, discipline farming, etc). As soon as a single entity got too big, the others banded together in some capacity, whether official or otherwise, to shut them down. 3 faction system would have to be a forced mechanic. Theoretically, Chaos and Order should band together to topple balance because it would be mutually beneficial, but the trend I see in this game structure is that the 2 smaller factions fighter each other for the scraps of the super-giant. Also, it is inherently difficult to balance faction population based on lore because lore matters to a lot of gamers and the least popular lore will lose out every time. The one way I have seen to balance the battle a bit is to appeal to a gamer's most basic instinct... their need for 1337 loot and gold... (ex. Balance is severely overpopulated so they get hit with a penalty to gold drops or xp. you can explain it away with lore and taxation to feed the starving children of the realm. The middle population would receive neither a bonus nor penalty as a result of the same logic and the least populated realm would get a bonus because there are simply more resources than people)
  3. As somebody who was intentionally trying to let a loot ninja die last night, I can confirm what Duffy said... Little bastid...
  4. Hey Guys, Before you jump down my throat calling me negative, just hear me out. This is an observation across many games, not just Crowfall. To start this out, this is my first full run of a campaign, my first time hitting level cap on multiple characters and my first time really participating in the test in any serious fashion... With that said, I can already see that the 3 faction system in this game, like all games, is failing miserably. One of two things happens... 1) the zerg joins one faction and establishes absolute control over the map and the game is not fun for anybody or 2) population is split pretty evenly between two factions and the last one gets absolutely left in the dust... This has been seen in every 3 faction game I have ever played... DAoC, Planetside, Planetside 2, Guild wars... Are there any mechanics in Crowfall to persuade people into playing the lower pop factions (bonus to xp, loot rewards, crafting bonuses)? When the game releases Dregs, are campaigns going to go the way of the dinosaur? What are your thoughts and how would you address this problem?
  5. Hello Friends! I just got back into this game after months off. Never before has the game captured me this hard. I hit level cap today and am looking for a guild to play the upcoming campaign and "hopefully" release content with. My Playstyle: Melee Bruiser / Healer Support Old Dude with a career - so play during peak hours only and weekends are spotty Region: North America
  6. CORRUPTED ESSENCE  

     

    Corrupted Essence is always looking for so mature players, we understand that real life takes priority, but we love to play.

    We need all classes and are trying to get as big of a guild as possible.

    Myself and the guild leader are Canadian, but we welcome all.

    Join us friend,

    Reply to this message, if you wish to join us and I will get the Guild leader to invite you.

     

    Once a guild invite is sent, it needs to be accepted on crowfall.com - Community tab/guild tab.

    Thank You

  7. Mastah and his Icelandic brethren still jamming with you dudes?
  8. I was really hoping for a Shadowbane like Confessor. Rolling around in Dragon Plate with a 90% chance to block throwing holy bolts at peoples faces. so fun.
  9. I see a lot of names on these boards that I recognize from my glory days of gaming. Looking for a GvG focused guild that intends on playing the political game a bit rather than jumping straight into RPKing (as fun as that tends to be, i'm looking for a bit more out of my gaming experience). below is an excerpt from my Introduction post. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Gaming History: I have been absent from the MMO scene for quite a while... history below (in chronological order) 1) Asheron's Call (Darktide shard) 2) Dark Age of Camelot (Andred Shard) 3) Anarchy Online 3) Shadowbane (House Morier Inner Council member) 4) World of Warcraft (ashamed that this was the MMO that I spent the most time in) 5) Darkfall Online 6) Mortal Online (pretty sad at how bad this was) 7) A bunch of short lived filler... GW2, ESO, FFXIV, etc... ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'd prefer to play with a bunch of people 25+ because I really have no desire to play with overly emotional trash talking High School/College kids. (swiftly turning into an old ass man at my young age)
  10. Hey guys and gals! Just wanted to stop by and say hi! I am SUPER pumped about this game (moderately embarrassed at how much I spent on the kick starter campaign). Gaming History: I have been absent from the MMO scene for quite a while... history below (in chronological order) 1) Asheron's Call (Darktide shard) 2) Dark Age of Camelot (Andred Shard) 3) Anarchy Online 3) Shadowbane (House Morier toppled LOD baby!) 4) World of Warcraft (ashamed that this was the MMO that I spent the most time in) 5) Darkfall Online 6) Mortal Online (pretty sad at how bad this was) 7) A bunch of short lived filler... GW2, ESO, FFXIV, etc... I have tremendous faith that the leadership over at Artcraft is going to drive this project in a successful direction. Of course it heavily depends on us as a community to make the game an ultimate success! I have no guild affiliations nor core of players that I travel from game to game with, but I am looking for some people to play with come Alpha 2 and beyond. If you have a group already and are lookin for some more players, give me a shout 'Bout Me: 27, live in CT, IT guy by day, musician by night. I love whisky, having a laugh and heavy f*cking metal. Did I mention I love whisky? Looking forward to chatting with ya'll on the boards.
