  1. Woohoo, I wish you all the best for 2018! 2018 will be the best year ever!!!

  3. Adding friendly fire would truly make this hardcore. Imagine you can't even trust not getting ganked by your best buddy, let alone your entire guild. Imagine someone playing the spy and stealing from your guild bank, months after masquerading as a guild member, only to be friendly fired when they try to escape with the goods. Haha, that would be cool.
  4. Honestly, take as long as you like. A lot of the changes you implemented which made the development time longer, I would have been fine with if you just kept it the way you planned initially. The most important thing is that you are the boss, and you direct the game to go where you want it to. I've put my faith in you and your team, and I am confident that this is a work of passion. Thanks for everything you do ACE, even if I don't agree with all of it.
  5. I don't think I can get used to the ranged attacks for Clerics. Is there a reason why this has to be?
  6. Dashing left, right, and backward for Centaurs seems kind of hard to pull off, seeing as they are half horses and all. I would really like to see some other option, rather than dodge.
  7. XD. All jokes aside, the thing is... ACE has to compete in a market saturated with games that essentially try to mimic the current most succesful one to make the most money possible. To make things worse, competitors also mimic systems that other MMOs use to make even more money by introducing things where the richest profit most. I recently thought about how I spent 1000 hours playing a video game, where I only spent 50 dollars to purchase it, in the meanwhile, I am spending 50 dollars for another game I only played for 20 hours. You know, I kinda felt bad, knowing that a game was so good, I spent 1000 hours playing it, while I payed the same amount of money for the game I spent 20 hours in. I could feel either ripped off for buying the one I only played for 20 hours, or I could feel like I ripped off the game I spent 1000 hours in, depending on how you look at it. I feel like I ripped off the one I played for 1000 hours. As an example I will use my favorite modder. He makes the tools people use to be able to mod games. Without him modding wouldn't be possible for certain games. He has a patreon and everyone simply comes by when they need it, donate a dollar and leave. Then they make their own patreon and receive money as a donation every month for making mods using his tools, for a ridiculus amount of money, while the guy who creates the tools for modding receives close to nothing. I decide to go out of my way to support the guy, to say "Thank you for doing this for us".
  8. Can my PC Run This?

    This game runs with the Unity engine, and Unity is one of the more less demanding and friendly engines out there. Pretty much, anything ever is going to depend the most on your GPU, so you have to figure out what your GPU is, and then google the games it can run that are standard today. I googled that your GPU-->integrated graphics might be intel hd 520 and you should be able to run the game on low settings 30fps. Of course, take into account that the more players and geometry are in your surroundings the lower fps you are going to get. They are working on optimizing lag with many players present.
  9. So, you're saying that there is no visual difference between human and nethari, yet you want to make them seem different by giving them different hair choices? Please ACE, I want to play a human and have the exact same hair choices as nethari. Please, don't add artificial uniqueness to races by limiting their options in character creation. My human druid has already been wiped from existence, please don't wipe my cosmetic choices as well.
  10. Hunger in Crowfall

    I personally love the hunger system. It gives the game more depth in terms of gameplay. Originally I wanted to focus on farming (Huge fan of Harvest Moon), but I guess they scrapped that idea. Would have been cool to be able to provide food for the troops, by having your own farm. I'm a huge fan of those types of mechanics, because it makes my character feel alive and not like some kind of glorified machine. I wish more games implemented those types of mechanics like the Sims, where you even have to take care of your hygiene and social life(Could be cool to have some sort of anti social trait), but it's not really popular with most people, because I guess most people don't like to play IRL simulators.
  11. I think this whole VIP thing is being blown out of proportion. This game is for a niche market, and should be considered as well when deciding what VIP should entail. I know they want this game to grow, but let's be honest, it will never reach proportions like a game like Star Citizen. I will support a game, if I enjoy it enough to come back to it and make it "my game". I don't need any fancy things that other people don't have to convince me to give ACE money. P2W or not, and that's what I think is the problem. The community is expecting value for their money, rather than paying for something they want to support because they like it, and everyone has a different definition of value per dollar. I mean, ACE could just introduce lock-boxes if they really want to make money : P
  12. The problem is that ACE already jumped the ship when they introduced elf races into the game, that are literally traditional elves. I really loved this game because it originally shied away from all the Tolkien races. In it's current state however they might as well just scrap the idea of Stoneborn and make them Dwarves, and instead of Elken, just get it over with and make them into Orcs. All jokes aside, I really liked the original design of the Stoneborn more than it's current one. I just feel like ACE is pushing it way too hard with the whole "Nope, definitely not a Dwarf" thing, but yet we have like 2 real elf races in the game. It's really hypocritical in my eyes.
  13. These are kickstarter exclusives. Kinda bummed out that the 1% will prove a huge advantage in the long term, but ArtCraft really needed the funding back then, so I'm fine with it
  14. Thanks, I have officialy wasted half a day writing random text and copying text into google translate for chinese, then back to english XD.
  15. Class and discipline design choices. I still think every race is way too limited in terms of class choices they have. Some classes aren't spread out enough amongst races while others are. Too many races can become Knights, compared to other classes at this point. This is not a bad thing, I just believe that the same should be applied to other classes. Speaking of the Knight: If a guinecean can become a Knight, then there really shouldn't be any limits at all. I mean seriously, a guinecean Knight? I don't even have to explain why this is completely ridiculous, but I'm fine with it if other races/classes can get the same treatment, especially Duellist. The game is in alpha, so why can't the lore be? Why not adapt the lore to fit class and race compatibility. The guineceans can teach other races how to use firearms. I mean, the other races aren't mentally challenged, they just haven't discovered the technology yet. I was already looking forward to a human Druid akin to Diablo 2, but now that option is completely thrown out the window(Not a fan of elves at all, too many elves in this game right now). These are all just suggestions, and I know you are still working out the kinks and trying your best, so please look at this as constructive criticism.
