    I've played maybe 4 hours so far and I'm just not sure what the point of this game is. I blame myself because I haven't done much research, but it feels sort of like Shadowbane (which I really enjoyed, but that was like 20 years ago).

    I played it for awhile. It's a major time sink. I went back in recently to see how it was doing. You move at a snails pace. Ugh. This game is gonna be DoA if they don't sort it (and the community) out.

    I played less than an hour - first time 40 minutes and uninstalled, second time 10 minutes and remembered why I uninstalled the first time and uninstalled again. There won't be a third time installing that game, even if they make it F2P, and they probably will considering how niche it already is with the forced PvP and how incomplete, boring and shallow the game is.

    Wowowow lots of serious p2w in that VIP. Those are waaay more than QoL & "convenience" features haha.

    They going straight whaling expedition right out the gate separating the community between begger & noble tiers. Maybe whaling expedition/hardcore players is the target audience though + they aren't trying to hide it so whateves..

    Many negative comments (especially at the top of this thread) are low effort shit-posting. I would ignore these. There was some good criticism in the other threads about UI flaws, combat, omitting faction warfare at launch etc.

    My main concern is whether the game will indeed perform well, since there was limited interest for the giveaway beta keys, and the population was reported to be low (which could be due to MOP giving a limitless uses key, and the wipe in a few days, so who knows).

    I tried it in the beta a few days ago and I liked what I saw, but it is not flawless. No game is. You could always give it a few days after launch to see how it goes before deciding to dive in.

    Lowering prices already? Sounds like they're worried.

    If they were targeting whales they'd make it microtransactions and someone paying $100 a month would still be at a disadvantage against a whale paying $500 a month.

    Personally I like Crowfall's style of trying to make the subscription near mandatory so that everyone who pays a reasonable price gets roughly level playing field.

    One of the perks is "+3 hours eternal kingdom uptime". I was under the impression you can visit your world whenever you want. Is the bonus uptime to make the world persist for others after you log off?

    I'm concerned that you still cannot have an EK open 24/7. The VIP just gives +3 hours to it.

    That seems... unfortunate.

    I read through the list and thought wow, they really toned the P2W down from what was discussed about 3 years ago.

    We all see thru different lenses..

    LOL. We have very different understanding about what a "whale" is. If all it takes is $15 a month for a sub then call me Moby Dick.

    If what the guy who agreed w/you @Scorchien wrote is true then why not reduce the base game price if they intend to eventually plan to go FTP? + are fishing for whales in the process?

    Have you checked out the other stuff they have for sale? That other stuff is pure whaling expedition stuff. Some of the parcels and housing are more than $150USD per. This is why I dislike when game companies create their own game currency to make it appear that items are worth more through that made up currency smoke barrier.

    It's obvious they're going for that long-term big spender demographic and that's fine & honest IMO rather than pretending to be all things to everyone.

    - P2W VIP which will be needed by any serious player
    - Housing will cost you hundreds/thousands + even more for guilds
    - Serious players will need to invest lots of time into the game

    Those are all hardcore gaming/spending things to have in a game and I'm glad they're announcing it up front so people can make the decision at the start if they want to go all in or not.

    Some folks just hate paying 30 cents a day or whatever it works out to.

    The community really jumped the shark when they started to call subscriptions P2W.  It was all downhill from there.

    I mean, you can like or dislike the model and have a preferred method of monetization, but a sub was always the baseline.  

    PS: Make sure you get that bonus payment from Walt and Todd this week. I think we did a damn good job over here.

    Can we at least have one thread where the usual suspects don't try to act like all knowing game gurus and just discuss games on case by case basis? Can we start with this one or are you jokers going to try and derail this one too like you do every damn thread where any type of real conversation/discussion is possible?

    Are there any gameplay advantages to these? As far as I could tell they are purely cosmetic.

    "Also as with many other MMOs on the market, the Crowfall VIP will offer subscribers a small token of in-game currency as well."


    LOL, happy i'm sitting this one out folks. You just can't make this shit up, $39.99 for this hot trash and VIP's get storage space, respeccing of skills/talents, in game currency?

    LOL, thank you for the great laugh.

    Maybe take 5 minutes to log into the game you claim to own or read up about it on their site? If that's too hard scroll up and click the link in the article the thread is based on..

    At this point nothing you write is worth reading for me and tbh very obvious bait material with the way you endlessly spin things just like your buddies. Your overuse of the agree/insightful feature has also become a form of trolling + possibly just a point padding account so I'm blocking you. I don't want to @Remsleep myself in a moment of weakness.

    This site should really consider removing the point system + ranks and go back to when what people wrote mattered more than this circle jerk tribalism that's going on now.

    I tried Crowfall in beta a few months ago. I'm normally willing to give most games a try. Hell, I played the original Bless Online on release AND gave the new console -> PC port Bless Unleashed a try!

    I uninstalled Crowfall after about an hour. That's about how long Bless Unleashed lasted on my PC. Just not my kind of game. Best of luck to them in their hustle though. These guys have spent a long time making Crowfall. Maybe one day it'll be fun.
