    nordsense reacted to Ryse in Is crowfall fundamentally boring?   
    I feel like this thread is both logical, based on the point at which the game is in development, and the time it's taken to get it this far. I also feel as though the thread was designed to be inflammatory to get people to read and post... and I suppose it worked. 
    As I get older, I am constantly confronted with the view that generationally, gamers are going to repeat the same feelings at the same arcs within game development cycles. And that there's a dual bladed nature to opening your Development to the General Public. 
    Harvesting, Generational Terrain, Temporary Campaign Worlds, and Tier Crafting are core elements of the game. As such, they've been around in their most basic forms since the inception of the Pre-Alpha... *cough* Pre-Alpha... which we're currently in. Therefore, these are both the most Stable... and linear elements of the game. As well as the elements we've been exposed to for the longest.
    There are definitely some balance issues in the game. And there are sound points presented across the posts for this thread. But I feel like the general frustration at the lack of flare and interactivity in Crowfall as a whole is like getting mad at a cereal company for making really healthy Cheerios. Yes, it's not Musili, and it's not Honey bunches of oats... heck, at times it's not even frosted flakes... but that's because our proverbial Cereal Factory hasn't opened its doors to the general public.
    We're several builds behind Development... and a multitude of unstable features haven't even seen the light of day yet. And I think that's largely because the Developers don't want to commit the ultimate sin and overpromise / under-deliver.
    And I'm grateful for that. I've sunk a lot of time, and a lot of money into this project, because I believe that Crowfall is spun from Talent, and from a desire to see a thriving game world. But I fight hard to make sure that I don't try to see the game for what it's not. Yes, this may be year three for me playing... but the clock hasn't even hit Day one on the actual game creation.
    At year three, Crowfall will be a highly connected, feature rich, niche MMORPG. It's Sandbox elements, and PvP to PvE ratios will be balanced. It will be filled with lore, and a smooth running, well oiled machine with a high lore base and dedicated custom content generating community. But all of it begins with that simple, stable, functional, boring bowl of cheerios. 
    Am I... are WE... hungry for more? Of course. We can all see ACE for what they are... a foundation of something we had thought dead in the gaming industry a decade ago. Do we crave to have that completed project in our hands now? Yes. I want to be building Quests, Smashing the ground to build a river in my EK, and running with friends to avoid the coming of Winter long enough to build one...more...damnable... sword... before that world falls into the Abyss of the Arch of the Nine Heavens. But I know that I've spent thousands of dollars on failed MMOs in the last few years who had shiny content out of the gate, and were dead in both gameplay and community a month in...
    When I see the community here, I see a very intelligent, and passionate group of people who crave what this game has to offer. And I can understand the impatient at the lack of depth and flare in the system. You can poke over to my most recent suggestion thread and see some of the overall suggestions I've been working on creating functional mockups for the Dev team on. Believe me... I get it.

    Voxel Based, Content Hacking Farming is boring. Tree based Crafting with no diversity in ingredient or variation of recipe is boring. Having your gear decay and then spinning another clone of it, all for a world that will die in a month is boring. But most of the parts of your Television are boring on their own too, and don't do a damnable thing until they're assembled into a 4k on which to play Gears of War.
    I recommend trying to keep this in perspective. And to attempt to keep suggestions upbeat and positive. It pays to never judge the quality of the flour being used until after the cake is being baked. Our job is to help tweak the flavor and the overall design to make it as palpable for the general public and hard core fans as possible. We paid, to step in for a small studio and help with QA, and community building. If sitting at the table, waiting for scraps of food to evolve doesn't suit, perhaps it's time to leave the table for a bit, and wait for some more hearty progress.

    But the initial point stands; the core stable elements, in their current form, are a tad droll. Fortunately, I doubt it will stay that way. Perhaps, a suggestion in the self named forum with potentials to increase the overall quality of the experience might be in order. Offer up some tidbits to increase the enjoyment of what is, by its necessity a grind, and we'll see if we can't grow the idea instead of just bashing it.

    This happens with most games of this nature. Albion online forum and interest was near dead and the game is alive and well. Once they release this and a few streamers start into it to give it more coverage along with write ups and youtube videos the game will fill up. It is not going to die it has not been alive yet.

    nordsense reacted to rhone in Paladin Class   
    Honestly, I like the traditional bane of the undead role of a Paladin with some healing aspects.  I also feel Paladins should be able to sacrifice themselves (in part or in whole) to protect people.  I'm hoping they decide to add a shield to the Pally, and maybe they already have, but if not then not.
