The March to First Campaign - Official Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

You really should have communicated this out prior to announcing the servers coming down. There are going to be a lot of really disappointed people who expected 5.8 was today.

Now it sounds like we're about a month away from the first campaigns?

Once we feel good about how these unofficial Campaigns are performing, we’ll trigger our first “sanctioned” Campaigns. These will include guild and player spotlights, updates “from the front” and unique rewards… plus, of course, the bragging rights to say that you were part of the winning team on the first “real” Campaigns for Crowfall!

When you say "real" campaigns and unique rewards... we're still getting wipes before launch, right?

Erm, thanks for the explanation, I'spose. I gotta ask though...

Quote

To make these tests a good indicator that we’re ready to initiate an official campaign, they need to run the entire duration of the campaign in the pre-alpha LIVE environment with a higher population of players than what we typically see on TEST.

Is all we're expected to do is fight? In an "official campaign" I'd expect people to harvest and fight over resources in addition to territory, which is not going to be happening.

This test environment will not fly as a "real" campaign...   because all of the materials are free in vendor.
and the wipe.

There will be no harvesters nor small scale PvP
The major guilds have already made late game gear and fought over forts

If you free level and free mats there is no longer any motivation to test, nor would there be if the game is not for the long term.
Do not expect the same number of testers to play as the last few weeks

We are in a holding pattern until the actual LIve and long term campaigns
I am sorry, we want to help, but you will not likely see higher populations in Test anymore...   it is stale without harvesting but won't work for that without full length long term play.   Catch 22

well to be fair, it had never really been officialy announced. yes many hints lead to the expectation i guess most of us had. but, in real the only thing that changed is the name of the server/client. there we go...

Yes. Download the separate TEST patcher to log in.

I thought they weren't using the test patcher. The Live patcher will connect to the test server, from what I understand. Things just got more complicated.

Why do you think that?

Good point. 

You guys can forget about getting more ppl to the test.

The whole article is disappointing tbh.

Why does a pre-alpha even need a "TEST-SERVER" ? Nobody expect the game to be fixed, balanced and working completly in this selfclaimed "pre-alpha" (even if I think you are hiding behind this declaration)

Now you want a working version on the testserver, before you start testing on the liveserver to get a real "first campaign" on? Maybe make a new serverinstance inbeween and call it LiveTest-Server?

Everybody has access to the Test-Server right now. Whats the point to keep it there, if everybody can play and not only a dedicated testgroup?!

  1. Redirect all players to the TEST environment.

They really need to clarify, because this communication is confusing.

I am pretty sure that ACE have redirected us to TEST with that news. I don't think that statement means we'll use the LIVE launcher to get to TEST.

The campaign is up on TEST right now. You use the TEST launcher to get to it.

Interesting. I still get "Cannot resolve destination host" if I use the LIVE launcher. But the TEST launcher works for me.
