    Kee got a reaction from Impius in How will tanks play the role of "tank" in Crowfall?   
    Back in Ye Olde Days of Shadowbane, tank-y classes were usually relegated to literally being meat shields. They'd be out front in force, keeping enemy melee engaged so they can't break the line easily. They'd also be smacked on seige weapon duty, either assembling or destroying, since they can take a beating while the enemy tries to stop them from doing their deed.
    I don't know how well that'd fare exactly here, but I can easily see a beefcake tank having a lot of utility in the battlefield! Remember in PvE, tanks are not there to be attacked by the boss - tanks are there to make sure nobody ELSE is being attacked by the boss. The same applies to PvP! You can be smart, and use tactics that make you a high threat that requires focus - essentially, taunt players. Get their aggro by making them... aggressive against you. These PvE mechanics have PvP counterparts.

    Tanks may be low-damage, but low-damage can still smush a glass cannon if they aren't stopped and they probably have utilities (stun, snare, interrupt, etc) that make them an annoying target that needs focus. High damage is not the end-all-be-all of target priority.
     
    ... Disclaimer: I'm someone who PvPs in most games as a tank, and I'm somewhat biased towards singing their praises. #meatsheild

    This community is great, and there's been a lot of people coming here recently to check out the state of development when is suuuuper duper. HOWEVER, there is a very loud subset of people who do not understand that this game is in pre-Alpha. Yes, I know it says that in many areas - but the front page, and store buttons, and package details all say in big shiny letters "Early access" - which sorta leads people who don't dig much to think that the current available server is just a slightly buggy game.
    Please, beat people over the head with big, obnoxious, flashing signs that say "TESTING - THIS IS A TEST. DEAR GOD, PLEASE DON'T GO IN EXPECTING A FLUFFY BETA."
    The people who do not do the digging to see the current state are getting upset (and yes, they should have done more digging. That's on them.) BUT their frustration is spilling over into the rest of the community. Folks feel baited into buying a full game that's just rough around the edges. They are wrong, of course - there really isn't a lot of alluding to that at all. But the wording should be MUCH clearer, because sometimes you have to hold peoples hands and explain things to them with small words and a pandering tone.

    "Early access" has become synonymous with "eh, we have to work on some more polish but it's basically done" - wrongly so, but that's the state of things. The faithful, patient, and level-headed players don't mind. The loud, upset, and frustrated players do - and their behaviors and opinions are being shaped by this inaccurate assumption. Please let the squeaky, impatient wheel get a little grease, and spoon-feed people a very blatant warning of what the state of things are. The salty folk upset that they don't have the lovably buggy beta they were hoping for are really putting a dark cloud over the community.
     
    TL;DR:
    People are expecting early access to mean somewhat-buggy, and they're throwing fits that they paid for an alpha test. Please roll your eyes painfully hard, take a drink of something strong, and then type out a condescending tagline that says explicitly "We're currently in Alpha. Alpha means glorified proof of concept. Please exercise patience and don't bark angrily about a lack of content."

    Hellooo future friends! I don't know how I found this game (Hazy memories of late-night browsing down a weird MMO rabbit hole) but I am nothing short of thrilled to over-indulge in this game and the seemingly lovely community it is surrounded by. Shadowbane was my absolute, bestest-favorite-ist-for-ever-ever game I played when I was a wee little dweeb, and I've been itching for something like it to come into the market ever since it shut down. This game seems like all the fantastic aspects of SB, with all the glitz of modern game tech and also like 900 more fantastic features I never would have thought of.
     
    Soo, again- hello! Hit me up if you want a friend to drag along in-game while we die trying to fling our characters into buggy corners for the glory of testing.

    Hah, yes I totally understand. I'd like it to be just a good description rather than another word that really changes based on context, but condensing that into a blurb that can fit on all the areas they have "EARLY ACCESS" pasted is not super easy.
    Although a button with tiny font reading "Click here to gain access to our limited content test server wherein you can get a general gist of how the game is going but you're essentially playing a trial version of the full game but with the potential for gamebreaking bugs and inconsistent uptime." would be hilarious.

    So far this game and community seem excellent, and I'm really excited to get in and try to chip in my paltry testing experience to help edge the game to the finish line. There's just so much potential here, I'm really trying hard not to go into absurd frothing-at-the-mouth-fangirl mode - but hot damn.

    Very much past the point of buy in, which is the biggest problem with the current language.

    Test is test, and connotes an unfinished product, and a user role other than that of a player. You press buy AFTER a button and language that says testing on it, you have no excuse to complain.
