Thank you Todd for addressing the “us” vs “them” mentality in such a candid way. I was starting to feel my first post on here would be the nagging voice of a parent/teacher trying to get a diverse group to play nice. You summed up both sides really well. I hope we can all start to be a little more open and understanding. While we can’t (and shouldn’t) all get along and agree on things, we can start to think of all of us all together as “we”- Crowfall players-to-be.
There are a lot of KingsIsle players here mainly for the fact that we admire and are grateful to J Todd Coleman for his vision and hard work with Wizard101. KI gamers are very, very excited to see what else he/the teams’ creative hearts and minds are creating. As mentioned, it will not be for everyone as it sounds like it will be a whole new type of gameplay. I personally have been playing and loving KI games for 6+ years now as an adult (both Pirate101 and Wizard101 from Beta in fact). That said, I also play many other less wholesome games so am familiar with some of the huge differences and challenges that are ahead. Let’s try not to stereotype/lump all Wizard/Shadowbane/etc players together as we all have various gaming backgrounds and interests. Let’s learn from each other and make new friends. (Feel free to add me!)
We have all been given fair warning of what’s to come. Let’s all remember…we’re not in the Spiral or Aerynth anymore! I am looking forward to getting to know everyone on here who sticks with the game.
