Hey Crows!

Publish 7.300 is less than 24 hours away from our Live publish and we are super excited for you to experience it. In addition to significantly improving map loading speed, the map now has several new features:

  • Added a legend to the zone map that allows you to filter specific Points of Interest on or off
  • Added a unique Map Pin to parcels where Boss and Raid Bosses can be found
  • Added for Map Pins for Side Quests
  • Maps will now have a death maker where a player death has occurred in the last 5 minutes to show where there’s active PvP
  • Maps will now show where teammates are located
  • Markers on the zone map should now be better centered over larger points of interest

Death markers for enemy deaths only? Or all deaths? Wouldn't be bad to see where some friendlies died as well. As according to the map legend it is only "enemy deaths"

This seems like a very bad idea. I understand that you want to push people into being able to find fights faster, but this just gives up any kind of strategy that the game had left for people who wanted to do things like solo PvP, small group PvP, ambushes, etc.

Now you'll have the big(ger) groups just running on a rotation from POI to POI and death marker to death marker whenever they pop up, so that they can try to third party.

On the other side of the coin, you'll also make it so that people know exactly where fights have just happened and thus they might actively avoid that area if they see X amount of skulls and deem it to be a group that's bigger than themselves roaming around there.

It's a quick bandaid fix to a much bigger and deeper problem with Crowfall that you should probably look much more into rather than doing it this way.

"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.

This is an important feature in the EVE Online map, and something I've been wishing for. It has applications in finding fights and avoiding them.

(I am small scale pvper, fwiw).
