  • Von den Entwicklern

    • Hey folks, I mentioned in our last Q&A that it might make sense to do an off-cycle “bonus” Q&A session this month -- but given the severe weather in Austin this week (with power and/or water being out for more than half of our team) that doesn't really make sense any more. The next one is only a week and a half away (March 2nd), so I’m going to suggest we hold off and cover everything then. A lot of you have also been asking about getting a Dregs campaign on Live -- we were
    • Sounds like you are playing a ranger. You only get the stats from the weapons that match active Power Tray you are in. Ie bow weapon stats in Ranged, sword weapon stats in Melee. This is to prevent dual tray classes from double dipping on weapon stats. Zum Beitrag
    • No fix for the crash in this version, still working it. We can use player.log and client log pairs sent to support@crowfall.com while we're working on it please. Thanks! Zum Beitrag
    • As part of 6.400 we can now on a per recipe basis set the recipe to bypass the take button. This ultimately saves you 2 clicks in crafting. The downside is if a recipe is flagged to do this, you can no longer re-name the resulting item. We have already flagged most items that don't have a serial number to bypass Take, however Based on what you have seen on 6.400 Test Server, which recipes do you think you don't need the ability to rename? (ie Do you need to be able to rename Rivets, P
    • Many thanks to everyone who has responded so far. We're combing through your posts and creating a player feedback report to share with our vendor so that they can improve the quality of the translations. We will continue to monitor this thread for any new posts and will incorporate those responses as well. Zum Beitrag
    • Hello Crows, The German translations received an LQA pass that should be reflected in the 6.300.0 LIVE client. There may be some translations missing because they tend to lag a bit behind our data changes, but the German translations that are there should be substantially improved from previous versions. If they are not, we'd love to know what needs to change. This feedback will be collected and forwarded to our localization partner. Previously, @Kraahk stated "the current translation
    • We're still digging into this issue on our end. No current ETA on uptime, but watch this space for updates. Zum Beitrag
  • Fragen und Antworten: September 2019

    In addition to answering questions from the forum and stream chat audience, the devs will talk about “Overall Team Competitiveness”, a formula Creative Director J. Todd Coleman devised for measuring the competitive strength of a team.

  • Crowfall enthüllt "Die Infizierten"

    Prepare to be infected as Crowfall introduces a third world type, The Infected, an eternal battleground where Crows compete for territory and premium resources across an infinite timeline. The Infected offers players of level 15 and above a mid-level risk/reward environment and a change of pace that sits perfectly between the safe-areas of the God’s Reach and the harsh brutality of The Trials of the Gods. 

    The challenge that players must overcome is gaining and retaining control of highly-contested strongholds and respawn points without which they cannot achieve success against factional enemies. 
    With a scoreboard that is updated on a 15-minute timer, The Infected features three siege maps (each home to multiple keeps, forts and smaller control points) as staging areas to a single resource-rich continent in the center of the map. Resource zones become the center of the conflict as Crows compete for valuable resources with everything from wild beasts to enemy combatants.
    The Infected: catch it now on a Crowfall server near you!

  • Fragen und Antworten: Juli 2019

    he ACE Q&A for July live stream took place on July 23, the same day the Fortunes of War update was released. 
    In the stream, Crowfall Creative Director J. Todd Coleman and Design Director Thomas Blair discussed the improvements to the new player experience in the game world called “God’s Reach”. One of the most significant changes was the rollout of the Magic Loot system, introducing juicy drops from PVE monsters that can be used to either outfit your new Crow or sacrificed to level your Crow more quickly. 
    All of this means that character advancement for new players is faster, easier and more fun than ever. It also means that by the time players are ready to brave their first campaigns, they will be familiar with all of the powers and talents their character possesses.  
    Other topics the duo covered in the stream included vessels, milestone momentum, banking and much more. 

  • Kriegsglück

    Das Update "Kriegsglück" ist bereit für Crowfall!
    The Fortunes of War marks our newest update, centered on items and equipment.  Two major features are included, both of which will drive advancement and conflict. The eagerly-awaited update includes a few other surprises so be sure to check it out. Read more about it at MMORPG.com and Massively Overpowered.

    The next Trial of the Gods will be announced later this week. To participate in that campaign, characters will need to be level 20 or higher. Crows are encouraged to use this interim time wisely to ensure their vessels are in tip-top shape and battle-ready.

  • Von Kreuz zu Pik

    In the article Ein freundlicheres Willkommen, we highlighted some of the improvements we’ve made to help new players get off to a solid start in Crowfall; however, once you’ve successfully navigated that first gauntlet of spiders with your new weapons and powers, what comes next?
    That all depends on you and what sort of Crow you wish to be. There are many paths to choose from and each has a veritable cornucopia of customization choices that open new possibilities in how you play, your look and the special abilities you acquire. Since the choices are vast, it helps to get an introduction that gives you insight into the different paths, providing a framework through which you can navigate to create the character that best fits your play style. So, let’s break it down into a more simplified view by taking a look at some of the familiar player types and which Crowfall activities are best-suited to each of them. 
    Von Kreuz zu Pik
    According to Richard Bartle’s Taxonomy of Player Types, the primary categories can be represented by the four suits found in a pack of standard playing cards: 
    Clubs - fighters Diamonds - fortune seekers Hearts - socializers Spades - diggers for information Bartle himself will be the first to say that since most players prefer to mix it up a bit the theory isn’t failproof. Still, the basics are still relevant and meaningful enough that game designers continue to use his findings as a reference point.
    It’s all interesting stuff, especially for those who are interested in game design theory, but many of you may be asking… 
    Was gibt es für mich?
    Crowfall has an innovative, multi-faceted character advancement system. As you play the game presents players with meaningful choices to advance your character through the selection of Disciplines, Skills and Talents. Through selection of these you tailor your character’s special skills and talents.
    When you start playing Crowfall, your Eternal Crow enters the Dying Lands ready to fight for glory, wealth and power. No doubt, your Crow will need some skills, right? The game world is full of possibilities for every player type, you choose your path - and that’s why your choices matter. 

    Clubs - You’re a fighter. Not a scruffy, scrappy mutt, no. You’re a savage killing machine, assassin or perhaps, a mercenary. Fighting other players is the optimum way to prove your mettle, and you’ll scratch that itch when you plunge into clashes over the control of forts, keeps and outposts. But don’t saddle up and head into the battlefield just yet, cowboy. You’ll need some training first so that you can become one with your abilities.
    Pairs well with: Diamonds - You’ll help them by swiftly dispatching enemies, they repay you by providing the best weapons and equipment.
    Getting started: Hone your skills on the creatures of the Gods Reach such as spiders and the undead, then whet your appetite for PVP with a siege or two before striking out into your first full-fledged campaign world Throne War.

    Diamonds - You don’t simply want everything, you want it all in multiples. Your ambition drives you to build a reputation that tells others you have the best of everything and are willing to share it with them… for a price. Through harvesting, crafting, trading and collecting, your empire will begin to grow once your well-stocked vendors start raking in the sweet, sweet gold you'll happily count from the comfort of your very own kingdom.   
    Pairs well with: Spades - They know where to find the good stuff. Bartering the information they provide for the resources you have is a worthwhile return on your investment.
    Getting started: Even as a new Crow, you can earn collectible tankards by spending some time on the TEST server and you can earn a God Sigil, imbued with magical power, by participating in the Trials of the Gods. Venture into War Tribe camps to fill your inventory with fat stacks of loot that you can use, sell or trade.

    Hearts - You’re a people person, a social butterfly that finds contentment by interacting with others. While your primary motivation may not necessarily be to become embroiled in politics and intrigue, you’ll inevitably build up a database of who knows who and who’s doing what. These can be powerful tools should you decide to throw your helmet into the ring of guild management or coordinating events. 
    Pairs well with: All player types - You’re basically the wild card in any deck since the knowledge you hold is valuable to all of them. Who would make the best ally? Who’s not to be trusted? You know the answers, but you’re also savvy enough to know how to use that information in the ways that best suit your own purposes. 
    Getting started: Your hobnobbing can begin even before you log in by perusing the Guild Recruiting forum and the Unofficial Crowfall Community Discord. Regardless of where you are in the world, you’ll always find Crows to flock with, day or night. Within the game, you can strike up a conversation in a variety of ready-made chat rooms (accessible from the lower right corner of your screen) or create a channel of your own.

    Spades - Hey, trailblazer! The burning desire you have for discovery drives you to leave no stone unturned, no hill unclimbed. Few things make you happier than exploring every inch of the terrain to see what’s out there. And, since Crowfall’s Dying Worlds are dynamically-created to be different when the world resets after each Throne War campaign, there will always be new maps to explore and conquer. Knowing where the points of interest are is only a drop in your adventure bucket. There’s more than one way to cross a map and you’ll know all of them. You’ll also know where to find a fight if you’re looking for one and alternate routes if you’re looking to avoid conflict.  
    Pairs well with: Hearts - The information they gather from other players provides a handy shortcut around a lot of missteps and backtracking as you explore new areas. 
    Getting started: In studying the terrain and architecture as you investigate the world around you, you’ll quickly learn to identify the safe areas, the unsafe areas and everything in-between. Familiarize yourself with the locations of runegates and you’ll be able to pop quickly from one place to the next, leaving more time to do the exploring that you love. 
    Spiel mit einem ganzen Deck
    Having a variety of player types is important to creating an online world that’s vibrant, inviting and exciting. Taking it a step further by giving players ways to mix-and-match the activities they enjoy adds even more depth, and that’s what we’ve set out to do with Crowfall.
    What’s your ultimate desire? To command an army of elite fighters? To rule your own kingdom with the support of loyal vassals? To build a robust empire connected by trusted trade routes? To create rare and powerful items that earn you the most sought-after maker's mark? All are attainable goals.  
    Which player type do you identify with the most, and which aspects of Crowfall appeal to that facet of your inner Crow?
