  1. Without wishing to be a hater, but that was a rather useless stream. It was billed as "Crowfall game designers Thomas Blair and Mark Halash will discuss the “big ticket” changes to the game and give a sneak peek at upcoming changes.", yet there was nothing really of substance in there. In fact, during Q&A you went out of your way to prevent answering the real big-ticket questions that people wanted to hear, such as ETAs for Live Test Server / 5.2 Patch, plans about Friendly Fire, Thrall crafting stations, etc. It should be easy to find the trending topics on the forum to get a fe
  2. Slightly deviating from the topic of this thread but, yes, friendly fire is a must for the Dregs and perhaps some of the other bandings as well. I've played Warhammer Online a lot and the mindless zerging eventually gets to you because there's no punishment mechanic that stops players from doing so.
  3. My first thought when I came to the game cold and saw the prices was, for lack of better words: "WTF? Are they having a laugh?" Then I realised that this is a game that requires big guilds to be successful, quickly did the math and thought the prices weren't so exorbitant, provided that everyone contributes or you got a few big spenders in the guild. Which is a big if, to be honest. My second thought was: "Ugh, another P2P win game!" Then I did some more research and realised that the EK is pretty much divorced from the campaign and more serves as a social and trading hub.
  4. I actually like the icons. i wouldn't have thought about what the colours represent, but the meaning of the shapes are rather obvious and I find that these help a lot.
  5. The problem with the Warhammer mechanic for the Bright Wizard / Sorceress was that the self-inflicted damage was significant enough to make you think twice when you were solo, but in a group that damage was too often easily mitigated by a simple HoT, which in turn meant that the BW/Sorc were ridiculously OP for pretty much the whole game.
  6. Indeed, with all the recent announcements it feels like they're holding back on the patches currently and then hit us between the eyes with a massive one. Zhe mother of all patches.
  7. I second these ideas. The more and more I play and read about the game, the more I'm convinced that I want to play a scout who excels at roaming, using stealth to get behind the enemy's lines and then map the territory to the benefit of his guild whilst reporting enemy movements, disrupting caravans and taking out lone players. I was never excited about such a role, as it was generally surplus to requirements in most MMOs, but with the fog of war and other mechanics, Scouts will actually have a very valuable role.
  8. Depends. You can play more passively and sell your services to whichever side is taking a beating, or you can be more active and actually start beating up the winning side. It's all about maintaining balance, and that could actually mean that you end up with the most amount of forts, as long as you ensure that the rest is spread more or less evenly across the other two factions. It's also more likely perhaps that you get picked on by the other two sides. Balance could perhaps be the most interesting one to play as you're the piggy in the middle, and that can lead to some really intriguing
  9. Will we have a decent degree of guild functionality? In order to properly test it, we will need to organise as guilds and perhaps strike alliances. Some rudimentary guild system is required for that.
  10. Some amazing videos and gutted I couldn't participate. Next time hopefully!
  11. I share Caenth's fear. i think the change is fantasic as it could create better aesthetics of the maps, more interesting landscapes and some great tactical options for landscape. However, as it currently stands the seams can be very ugly and take away from the immersion. I also worry if this will exacerbate potential lag issues during massive battles. Still, no doubt you will look into this.
  12. Thank you, I figured as much and I fully intend to play in an organised guild as that is how I have played my whole MMO life. Applied already with Caldera... waiting to hear from their officers. :-)
  13. Thank you, that puts everything in perspective and allays some of my fears. Will give Druid another go. First thing to change is to add Dryad to my Field Surgeon major discipline as both seem to perform well. The rest perhaps keep the same: Mythical Staff for weapon disc and Matching Plate / Armor of Faith / Overwhelming Odds for minor discs.
