Maybe YOU can solo "without any issues" but when so many people are saying they are having issues blaming them is not going to get more people to play the game you love so much. And without players its going to be the same small dedicated core group of a couple hundred player left.

The same dude have now made the following claims:
- That he has no performance issues at all
- That the game has no issues with low player numbers and is "filled" with players
- That the game has no issues with their NPE
- That he can play entirely solo without issues(although in another post he admitted that you need friends)

Take everything he writes with a billion grains of salt.

"Crowfall's evolution has been interesting: when we started, the game leaned much more heavily on survival mechanics. over time we added more and more strategy and pulled the survival mechanics. by launch, we'll be the most strategic virtual universe (IMO surpassing Eve Online)" - J.

Imagine being so butt hurt that someone doesn't agree with you uninformed opinion.

Dude, just go play some other game. You'll be a lot happier.

I have no doubt that people are having difficulties. It's because those players refuse to adapt their play to the circumstances that they find themselves in.

Yes, once again it is the players fault that they aren't having fun. *rolls eyes*

 

I hope the devs have a different takeaway from the information being provided by so many people who are "doing it wrong" and aren't enjoying the game.

 

And even if the devs are even listening, it seems to me that the core group has been put on their next game and only a skeleton crew from an already small dev team is left.

 

I haven't given up on this game yet but the more I learn about the history of changes and what is going on behind the scenes the less confident I feel that the changes needed to be made in order for this game to be successful can be made. I think there are some dedicated people working on it who are willing, I just don't know if they are being given the resources and support.

 

I see so much potential here, it really will be a shame if it is unrealized.

I think it is too good review. I mean how can you give a 64/100 to game where you have to pay sub to get your talents reset. And as he already mentioned "works only on specific conditions". Imagine giving "better than average" score to game that most times fails to deliver even decent gameplay experience. 

Basically you're saying that it's fine to trash the game but never fine to support it.

None of those are opinion based, my dude. That's where the problem with your way of thinking comes in. You think they are opinions, when in reality they are facts.

I am playing New World right now, while I am typing this very post, and having a blast. If anything, you should probably take your own advice and just play Crowfall instead of trying to defend it all day every day, because that makes you seem unhappy.

Your post count and forum activity is higher than the game's playerbase. No one cares about your opinion, you neckbearded basement goblin. 

Wow. Just wow.

Don't worry, there are no "potential players" for Crowfall anymore with how bad the word of mouth of this game is.

They'd need to flip the game upside down and fix like 15-30 major things(with a small skeleton crew, mind you) to even begin thinking about attracting new players.

I'm already tired of posts like this, and I've only returned for less than a week's time.

I don't know how the rest of you have tolerated this mentality this long, but I see now why the game is currently wounded. The worst wounds are in the gut.

People have been doomsaying the game for years because Artcraft has always refused to change things that needed change.

Now that the game has officially launched, with all the bad things that desperately needed change, plus a low playerbase, it's like a confirmation that Artcraft just doesn't care.

If the people in charge don't seem to care, why should the players care? Trolling the forums and having forum wars is better PvP than the actual game.

I think this game has some major issues going on. If it was really for large scale PvP they shouldn`t have taken the unity engine at all, but instead have come up with their own engine which could handel large scale PvP. The problem is  other games tried that like camelot unchained and they were building up there own engine, but that leaded to never finish the real game, because they were so busy creating the engine. I think its a general problem in modern games, that nothing can really handle large scale fights like 500 people at the same spot, like WoW has already problems when there are more then 40 people at the same spot.

 

But all the other things i can`t tell so much, i mean i have been observing the game since 2016 and they did a lot of changes and sometimes moved away from their initial core philosophy, like there was times when you were flooded by PvE drops, glad they removed that again. But there were also times, when you could just create a character, do maybe 1 hour of PvE and jump right into the action, where nowadays it taks you 4-5 hours or even 10 hours as a new player before you even see any PvP action going on. I mean they also done some good things like back then in 2016 you only had archetypes, no levels, no disciplines and so basicly no character specialisation, but now it leads to some builds beeing super overpowered and very bad balanced compared to other. I don`t know what to think of this. Its not all bad in my opinion, they did a lot of mistakes, but some things can still be fixed and reduce imbalance or confusion for new players. But some things, people gotten so lazy nowadays like when lazypeon was complaining about flying with his crow to the shrine everytime he died without even asserting the big text that was written on his screen: Press F!

 

It can`t be helped. Competion is there, there are many titels like New World or other that compete for the same audience. The question is, can this game survive with a player base of maybe 10000 (i just assume that when 3500 active people are confired at the same time, there are still some more which did not log in right now) and can they make enough money from it, to keep going. I don`t know. I have seen worser games like cubeworld with more scam to its customers and i have seen better titels.

For a launch of a game this is all disappointing because major features of the games are not accessible like Faction vs Faction. ACE might either find a way to rescue this or maybe in a half year the servers are put offline and the game is gone. Nobody really knows. For those people who like the game, maybe just try to enjoy it as much as you can as long as its still there.

Do you want these forums to be only for fanboys like your self? would you start jerking off over which one of you thinks the game i better and have vivid chats about how you rubbed your junk on a fort wall during a siege ?

 

everyone knows your a troll and a fanboy. You should really try and understand and listen to other people before forcing your own perspective onto other people.

And your IQ is showing.

I can tell I'm getting old because I'm not in a hurry to get satisfaction.

Please explain?

Because just stating your IQ is showing means nothing to anyone. Unless you have nothing to really say at all that I'm going at the biggest troll on these forums and your trying to be diplomatic by defending your buddy but you cant really make an argument to support him.

 

If you agree that Blackfeatherco is a troll like this post.

I've already put two of them on Ignore. A sad state of affairs.

Post some criticism and here comes the gatekeeper with his ever shifting gate.

Gamma behavior masquerading as critique is pretty damned obvious when you've lived as long as I have. But I know that statement is completely lost on the same people I'm aiming it at. Life is irony.

People that hate something so much but hang around to inform everyone about their hate are trolls at best and narcissists at worse. There are more F2P games and MMOs out there than I can even remember. When I was a wee lad I was happy to have PONG.

Let's all try to keep things in a bit of perspective. I for one already know I'll be spending less time on these boards after today because 1) I'll be playing CF  and 2) Like Gandalf, I don't tolerate fools easily.

Good luck to the dev team. I can't even being to imagine how well they've had to insulate themselves from the negativity I've seen here in just a few days.
