  1. I wonder why this was only asked on the unofficial Discord server only and not here on the official forums as well? Not everyone reads everything there. It's easy to miss the important things between the pile of garbage posts in there. It's weird you ask something about the forum rules/moderation on a Discord server.
  2. I recently changed my email address, but I'm still receiving the Crowfall newsletters to the old address instead of the new one.
  3. They already ran out of time months ago. If you still think that they will make soft launch at the end of the year I'm not sure what to tell you. You know, the main reason I see features and the designs deteriorating is because of this. They are out of time. It feels like they are making design decisions to hasten the progress and get lost time back. The game's quality and difficulty, and overall design is suffering because of this. It just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I don't like this one bit. Announcement after announcement this game is becoming into something easier, some different game that I backed and got promised. I fully realize game development sometimes means that designs change, but we are at a point where too many crucial and big design changes are being made and the game is not becoming better because of it imo.
  4. +100 Without guild banks ... I don't even know where to begin.
  5. Faction specific info only, which I'm not really interesting in (you didn't forget about GvG and The Dregs didn't you?). Overall not really new info in this article. Still no info about guild banks at all, it makes me a sad puppy. These are the most needed in the game at the moment! Doesn't mean they won't be in the game, but we want them for a long time now. Some info would have been nice imo.
  6. The breadcrumb navigation bars on the top and bottom still look bad since the update. It is way too close to the sides of the white area.
  7. Fonts are looking weird. Tried 3 different browsers (Chrome, Firefox and Opera). Cleared cache to play it safe. The problems are not on my side. Also, still no permission to enter ACE Dev. Logged out and back in. Didn't help. Sorry, but only the dev tracker seems to be fixed so far.
  8. I don't ever see Caldera (or any other guilds) use this Discord integration. Text maybe, voice never. Guilds will use their own implementations anyway. Waste of resources to implement it imo. If people are stubborn and implement it anyway, make it so it is turned off by default or at least give me a very obvious option to turn it off completely. I do not want to hear any kiddies screaming in my ears. Not even for a second. So muting players is not an option here. It is already to late by then.
  9. I would call this race 'nothing special'. I miss something unique to this race. Something I want to pick above all else. Meh. Edit: Give me a free Pickpocket power.
  10. In most games Humans are the most played race. That said, there are more interesting options in CF, so this time it might be different.
  11. Sorry, but you are wrong. I got a private message from Todd asking me for my personal opinion in a private message after I said I was upset with the changes. And this is after I discussed the topic for months in the ACE Dev forums besides on these public forums. I don't blame Todd really. I do think he really tried to understand and read everything that was posted and make everyone happy. The problem though is, that the amount of posts and threads about VIP and general skill training were so many that the other side got drowned out. The loud and few that kept repeating the same ****ing topic over and over got their way it seems.
  12. And I hate they added that. I had hoped @jtoddcoleman would see through the combination of VIP and skill training, but alas. I argued against this from the beginning and I don't think he didn't read my arguments. So his mind is made. I don't think anything I say will change his mind at this point. He seems confident this is the right solution. I am not. In the end it is his decision, his game and his right to change the design though. I just don't have to agree with it. Imo, combining the VIP 'problem' with additional skill training is wrong to be begin with. They are two separate issues. First, the incentive to buy VIP doesn't have to fixed by adding mechanics to increase power by adding more skill training. You can give (cosmetic and other exclusive) incentives to VIP which I outlined before in another thread months ago. Second, extra general skill tree training (now called Professions) diminishes specializations and dependency. Even Todd agreed on this in the stream. In the past ACE themselves argued for strict specialization, because it creates stronger communities. This was a good reason to support this game. With that now being gone for a good chunk I'm not sure I like where this game is heading anymore. I'm very sad ACE listened to a few very persistent and loud people who conveniently combined VIP and general skill training for their own purposes. A purpose that in my opinion is not healthy for the game and community in the long run.
  13. I don't have to see the sun to know it is shining. Same with this change to the skill system, I can see where it is heading without having seen it in action. When the majority sees the problems, it is already too late.
  14. And they can both create swords. I don't want this possibility. I want what the OP talked about, I want 100% interdependence from the professions. This will ensure a strong community that needs each other to be able to accomplish anything. I even created my guild structure around this design. This change just made Crowfall on step closer to become WoW. I don't like that one bit.
  15. Yet, you can now also train combat and crafting at the same time. Removing a huge chunk of specialization. I hear you through the waterfall made of my tears.
  16. I predict people will now reach the end of a skill tree line a lot faster than Todd anticipated before.
  17. Except, more choice in this area is a bad thing.
  18. I agree with Scree on this one (can't believe I say this). Except, I don't think this one is on Blair, but on Todd.
  19. No, you are not. But they only announced it for patch 5.3. Which was still weeks (if not months) away at that time. So if you stopped training it is your own misunderstanding.
  20. This is not how I normally sound ... my voice was gone. Like most Crowfall volunteers. I had major fun working at the booth and seeing all of you who were there. I miss everything and everybody!
  21. Ugh what? You have to turn this around really. They never said we wouldn't have sieging on Live. You and others assumed it we wouldn't see them on Live. I always did. I continued training because I could and did not see a reason to stop. Plus I want to reach 100% trained on my Confessor.
