  1. This discussion is leading me to flashbacks to past MMORPG's I've alpha tested that failed. This game's development needs testers that question development not blindly follow along saying everything is great.


  2. Cliff notes please ? Now I see how someone can have 3k post yet Ive never fought them during any test run dating back to hunger dome nor seen them on any test server on any region. Just curious what guild do you belong to ? 


    Keep this real simple to avoid further confusion on what we are saying.

    There is ever growing viral confused and incorrect opinion among the mmorpg communities regarding what Crowfall's soft launch is or isnt as well as an incorrect consensus on what pay 2 win in a pvp game like Crowfall is. Even original pre alpha testers are confused still on what the difference between beta, soft launch, and official release is. Any and all information out there from Artcraft is over two years old, hard to find, or in clips here or there on dev streams. At some point, in my opinion sooner rather than later, it should be addressed head on with the mmorpg media outlets as well as hosted in a clear and easily seen area on Crowfall's website.

    were 1st and 3rd paragraphs at me, i'm just putting relevant links here, not getting involved in this! :P


    Nope neither were directed at you brother. Ive actually logged into a server with you on it in the past. Nothing but respect for all you contribute to the community. I appreciate you finding that two year archived link defining the soft launch. Ive been looking for it for a while. I know the message is out there but it's not easy to find. 

  4. I must have forgot unless one has 3k posts and a name I dont even recognize as a tester you cant voice an opinion or provide feedback regarding Crowfall. 

    Tinnis's link is a perfect example of what I am speaking of. Some buried almost two year old soft launch definition that absolute no one can find unless you search web archives except Tinnis because he is Tinnis. 

    Also you are confused, me saying there are quantities of mmorpg players, gaming communities,  and streaming personalities growing in their labeling of Crowfall as being a p2w soft launch scheme isnt the same as agreeing with them. 


  5. When time allows publish a clear statement, easily found on the website, and provided to gaming sites, perhaps even as a news article, stating what is or is not Crowfalls soft launch, how it is not pay to win.  


  6. Arguing with me ? Posting concerns is considered an "argument" ? 

     I am telling you there is a bubble heading to a big pop regarding this soft launch and pay to win label, right or wrong, that will continue to grow across the mmo community unless it's handled better. I have access to multiple large gaming communities. The general consensus among all of them is Crowfall is soft launching in order to capitalize on a pay to win scheme. I dont agree with it of course but it is a real opinion many have.  

  7. The misinformation is sprouting up everywhere though not just youtube.  Other games are soft launching but not receiving anywhere near the negativity nor label of p2w that Crowfall is. Why is that ?

    Why? Seriously.

    If the game is fun, those articles and comments will turn right around when real players that are actually enjoying the game start talking about it. Streamers will play it, and enjoy it, and come back for more.  Problem solved.

    If the game isn't fun, no amount of trying to drill a hole in the ocean that is criticism is going to make a dent in that reality anyway.

    A company could spend all it's time and effort on how the game is perceived, and still come up with a craptastic product nobody wants to play.

    Like this veteran crowfall tester streamer ?

    @moneda, this may be the most brilliant thing I have ever read on a forum in all the years I've been working with online communities. o7


    You clearly dont know our guild members. Trust me their opinions are valid and not alone in their concern across the mmorpg player base regardless if they come here or not. Kinda condescending as well to label a few of us that care enough to voice a concern as not able to represent our guild's concerns. 

  10. My biggest concern is the mmo crowd, right or wrong, walking away from Crowfall due to Soft Launch misinformation before even giving the game a chance. 

    Just one example of hyperbole below, but this type of discourse can spread like wildfire. Especially in the current of landscape of posting hyperbole for clicks. Ive seen this discourse on reddit, youtube, and other mmo gaming forums as well.  


    Those of us that lived through sb.exe days  know how quick a game like Crowfall can go from a live great population to ghost servers. 

    Just so much miss information out there right now. Even if @jtoddcoleman has addressed what a Crowfall "Soft Launch" is publicly it needs clarity and it needs to be made clear among the various news mmorpg gaming sites and streamers. 

  11. 'However, I think building CC immunity into berserk would put it over the top"

    Most Myrm's are hitting juggernaut cc break now during zerk anyway. But sure maybe an increase in cc resist or a protective resist vs knockdown and stun only would.work as well. Something needs to give in the forcing Myrm's to take the juggernaut disc just so they can properly use their core mechanic.

  12. Spot on ..

    I test the Myrm, without bow, because it's a challenge as reflected in Makkon's descriptions of the Myrm's limitations.

    My suggestions 

    - Berzerker- increase the timer to really reflect eight seconds plus add in the juggernauts anti cc mechanic during the zerk timer. Myrm's already have to react to the crash as well as making sure taste of blood etc has procced. With opponent cc, which is endless, interrupting the crash as well as the Myrm's multiple other requirements to break the crash something has to give. As it is now Myrm's are forced to take juggernaut disc just to be able to use a core mechanic. Not sure any other class is so major disc dependent. 

    - LMB is the prime dps as Making describes. Berzerker should have an increase dps component. This would also need to be balance vs the half Giants Blood of the giant skill. When I think of zerkers I see slayers who not only soak damage but also increase their damage output.

    - Bloodied Swipe and it's follow ups feel the weakest on the tray. To aid mobility I would suggest the Bloodied Swipe provide a speed movement buff applied to Myrm. At the very least at a snare component to the gore follow up.

    - Not sure how I feel on the all the other tanks having heals. Perhaps a disc for Myrm only, a passive, that allows for applied bleeds to proc a small self heal dot.

    As a side note, without changes, the vast majority of Myrm's will be Half Giants due to the advantage of blood of the giant being able to prevent crashing as well. Kinda like everyone playing centaur champs ?
