Bringing War of the Gods to LIVE


Recommended Posts

In light of our announcement today that Crowfall has officially entered the alpha testing phase, we are ready to bring the War of the Gods (5.110) update to our LIVE testing environment! 

On Friday, May 29, the LIVE server will be taken offline at approximately 8:00 am CDT |  15:00 pm CEST in order to perform maintenance and to deploy the update. Initially, the LIVE environment will offer three of our five world bands: Eternal Kingdoms (the player-owned realms), God’s Reach (the starter area), and the Infected (3-faction-based campaign wars).  

We are still in the process of testing and balancing the fourth world, the Dregs (guild -vs- guild campaigns) on TEST and will continue to do so, on TEST, for now. Those who wish to test this mode – and have a higher tolerance for playtest issues – are invited to download the TEST game client and log into TEST. 

It’s important to remember that Crowfall is not a finished game. Whether you’re playtesting on LIVE or TEST, it is still testing and there will be issues. We urge you to share your feedback with us on the Testing and Feedback forums so that we can identify and correct bugs and problem areas that interfere with your enjoyment of the game. 

Quick facts: 

  • The LIVE server will go down at approximately 8:00 am CDT | 15:00 pm CEST.
  • The LIVE server will be offline for an estimated window of about 4-hours and as that changes we will keep you informed on the Forums. We will make an announcement when service is restored. If it looks like it may go longer than we anticipate, we will post updates. 
  • There will be a full wipe of LIVE, meaning all characters, passive skill training and inventory will be cleared as part of releasing the Alpha update on LIVE. 
  • The TEST environment will remain online and available for those who wish to continue playtesting there. 
  • Both the LIVE and TEST game clients are available here. Note that these are two different downloads, so be sure you’re downloading and installing the one that correlates to where you want to play.

The version that running on Live was from last July (!), so there is value in refreshing the environment and getting God's Reach and Infected in front of new players for that reason alone.  Both the D

Just as an FYI we don't always know when a wipe will be needed.  If we have to restructure training signficantly we'll need a training wipe.  If we end up with item/character issues then we may have t

Will there be a wipe when the game transitions to beta, or only now as the 5.110 arrives?  Will there be a Dregs campaign on LIVE before it moves to beta?  

Yes, there will be a wipe when the game transitions to beta. We try not to wipe unless we have to, but when there are major updates that require it, we will. This means it's not possible to project how many more wipes there may be between now and launch. And, yes, that means we will do a final wipe before the game launches. 

Regarding Dregs, the testing for that will continue to be the focus on our TEST server environment. Those who want to participate in Dregs campaigns can playtest it on TEST.

OK thank you, the reason I ask is because competitive players will want to know if it is "worth" spending time on LIVE to keep up with their gearing and leveling and skilling in case the Dregs ruleset transitions to LIVE before beta.  

 

So to clarify: Will there be a Dregs campaign on LIVE before beta?

What was the thought process to bring this to Live if you're just wiping it again soon?

The build on LIVE has been there for quite some time, and people who are new to the game were not seeing all the great new things we've added since LIVE was last updated.

Is there a wipe for 5.110 on live ? Most of us were under the impression when 5.110 came to live it was considered beta.

Are you concerned that going to Live with a wipe then another wipe soon may drop the player population until the frequent wipes are over?

From her response, given that it is accurate, it does no agree with my own logic.  The only thing that could possibly be accomplished here is that some new people playing solo see some different features than they would have seen.  They aren't really better, just different.  And it's not like those new players, for the most part, will ever see any of the changes that have to do with cooperative play if the majority of the testing population is not interested in playing.
