    Well.. stunning from a certain perspective.  Long over due from others...

    I agree though, with their recent hard pivot to Esports they are going to need a lot of help/luck.

    It is good that one of these games is finally shipping.  This one isn't a game that I'm attracted to, but a launch date is positive news.  Maybe this will start a trend.  It's long past boring watching these development teams struggle with the basics.  Amusing, at times, but mostly boring.

    Awesome news. Thanks for the update. This is one of the games I am very interested in. Now that we have a release date I can do some research on its current state and see if I will buy it. Congrats to the dev team for taking it to the finishing line.

    While not interested in playing,  I am following it in terms of indie MMO success and its nice to check one off of the pending launch column, win or lose.

    Im really interested in what the testers have to say. Im dying for a PvP MMO. I'm not impelled by their non persistent world. But it could be the thing I never knew I wanted.

    Anyone know a good streamer for this game?

    I miss the days when the difficult bits occurred after a product launched.   Will it sell?  Is the price right?  Will the customer like it?  How do we make sure the customer knows about our product?  Will it make money?

    It's good the know this seemingly bassackward business model can occasionally find the finish line.  Goodness knows they seem to worry about the post-launch issues first.  I wonder how much that really hurts businesses?

    Box + optional sub, with the sub giving quite a few significant advantages.
    Is it advantageous?  I have to go look.  Last I saw it was fairly “ehhh” for the VIP stuff.   Personally Id love to see the sub add value.  As long as they don’t nickel and dime me on top of a sub, it remains my preferred monetization form

    In THEORY its a "Throne War Simulation" where various factions fight for control of dying worlds.  Each world is being slowly destroyed and goes through seasons (Spring Summer Fall Winter) before dying.  The mobs become harder and the resources scarcer.  At the end, the winning faction (their are goals to work towards, not all are military) can export a larger (all?) of their resources to their Eternal Kingdom (instanced housing).  Losers can export less.  Theer are control points and keeps to fight over as well as mob spawns.

    There are rulesets that go from 3 way faction to FFA Guild vs Guild stuff.

    They recently made a HARD pivot in focus to Esports and added a 12 team (5 players per team) Battle Royale mode that they were pushing with a $50k prize.

    I watch CohhCarnarge on twitch... he is very honest about games (even when sponsored) and responsive to comments in his channel (you don't have to subscribe to post) as he plays.

    He said he was very interested trying this one, not sure if he'll try it at launch day (usually he does).  He's late 30s... been twitching for 8 years.. so has a great reputation, large and cool community, and mature/balanced viewpoint on games imo.  I enjoy his streams. :)

    He also posts some of his vids on YouTube, but Twitch is the best experience.

    I've waited years for Crowfall to release, played Alpha, Beta etc. But now, I don't know, I feel nothing at all. I am not even sure if I'll install it to finally properly play it. Weird how that works.

    There's never been an NDA so you can read the forums, videos, twitch streams. Plenty to look at.

    Anyone that believes it is ready to launch would be in a very small minority.

    Nothing stands out about the game and they've done little to make it a pvp mmo. Basically campaigns are long term battlegrounds that have a time limit with the top guild score winning. Get points and rewards for owning a castle or doing certain guild wide quests over time. Zergs are rewarded without any anti-zerg mechanics, that's if the server can handle their 100v100 planned numbers. Bright side is players can hop from server to server and campaigns end so players get to start all over like a battleground, just takes weeks/months instead of minutes.

    Combat brings nothing new besides pretending it is high skill because there is no tab but it's easier to play then WoW. PVE is terrible. Worlds are randomly generated but look mostly the same until they start making more biomes, so boring for now. Crafting was supposed to be a selling point but needs work. Non customizeable UI, can't even move things around. No individual achievements or rewards for PVP. Progression is typical gear color grind. No economy tools. Eternal Kingdoms, player housing, still far from what was planned.

    Overall it's okay for a kickstarter MMO, but someone looking for PVP or PVE would be better off in a long list of others that have years of content.

    Only a couple hundred total play even when they give out thousands of beta invites and something like 50k or more have bought the game over time. Speaks volumes.

    Reviews don't seem very enthusiastic. Maybe a pass? 
  • WizardryWizardry Member LegendaryPosts: 19,332
    it is not positive news unless yo ubeleive the delay meant a better game and lot's more content.
    What i suspect happened is they have not received anymore buyers,no more money so the next phase is an official launch to gain some interest.
    he might have even been pressured if the current heavy spenders feel the game is dead and needs an influx of players.
    IMO this launch will do VERY little to create enough cash flow to matter and they will need to rethink a new strategy.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

  • WizardryWizardry Member LegendaryPosts: 19,332
    Even though this is a half assed game just think that Riot and Epic and Steam and many others are making millions-billions doing NOTHING for the industry.

    You're suffering from crowdfunded game information fatigue.

    I like it best when I find out about a game that looks good and I can play it within a year or maybe two max.

    With all the info that trickles out from crowdfunded games for 5 - 10 years before release, by the time it launches it feels like old news to me... like an old game.

    Some might think that's weird but that info fatigue is real for me.

    That is a big reason I don't do early access, or play necessarily at launch even.

    I'd rather play after games have had a chance to gel properly rather than risk burning out before they hit their prime.

    I feel the same as @lahnmir but in my case it's because they got further and further from what was initially pitched.  It started with the switch of engines (never a good thing) which resulted in a big change in the destructible environments, then the new engine struggles with massive fights, and now they pivoted to 5 man Esports...

    I didnt get burned out by the game... I just felt less inclined to load it up because it kept getting further from what I was sold.

    But I will likely give it a final look at launch with my group... Haven't played in months, so maybe something will suddenly click.

    Funny, for me its different. I had dreamed of being a game developer as a kid. I have followed some games that I have no interest in playing just because they have been so open about their process. I have also found watching inexperienced teams take on more then they didnt know they can handle and its been fun watching things unravel and to watch people freak out about it. Its like  soap opera for gamers lol

    Do we know that this is the case and that it is not just a one-time event just to hype the launch?
    In Crowfall you don't stay on a particular server. You choose what realm you want. 

    Currently the servers are :

     The Dregs - Massive Throne War campaign with forts, keeps and castles                        that support 100v100 sieges. 

    God’s Reach - Perpetual 3-faction RvR server.

    The Hunger Dome - A 12-team, 60-player battle arena.

    Eternal Kingdom - player-built worlds that offer guilds and monarchs the  ability to terraform the terrain and construct spawning cities and massive strongholds.
