    Well know by who? A secret cabal? Where is this information located? Is the article I linked to incorrect? What else is there to it? Are you able to link something or do you know someone who is able to?

    Yeah, there's that guy working on Crowfall...now, what was his name? J. Todd...something? Can't remember.

    While I'm here, they just introduced personal kingdom building to player tests:



    This building tool is currently available to pre-alpha 1&2 players. I'm saying this to avoid confusion, because the current tests are, in general, for anyone with beta 2 ($70) or higher but new features are always first allowed to more expensive test groups.

    That still does not imply that a totally different universe would end up with the same races and classes (except for the hamsters!).
    That said, where are my Birdmen? :)

    Birdmen had a little...sex change surgery. Worry not, they're recovering and all will be fine.

    Here is the skill system "streamlined." Doesn't look too shabby. I'm definitely looking forward to this game now that I know it isn't shit for monkey idiots. My only reservation being the lack of ability of people who claim to have played or play this game to explain simple things, but this is the codex so it is par for the course I guess and should not reflect poorly on the game.

    The modern MMO cycle: 20 years in alpha, then released as complete shit.

    Meh, exaggeration aside, MMOs are seeing the same huge development stretches as ever, yet we're exposed to it much earlier by necessity of crowdfunding.

    But yeah, I don't like it either.

    It's the same as ever. Now you just have 100% transparency when previously, even Star Citizen would've just made it's public debut two years ago (five years out of a seven year cycle) and that's way more ambitious than *insert generic themepark MMO here*.

    Also on topic I played Crowfall a month or two back and it's fun. Definitely shows more promise than Camelot Unchained.

    Why do you think it has more promise than CU? I have not played either game (although I have played DAoC and Shadowbane), but just by looking and reading about stuff it would seem to me that CU is the stronger contender here.

    No way. MMO cycles were always long, but you got something at the end. Out of early MMOs, almost every single one was successful to some degree: UO, EQ, EQ2, WoW, AoC, AC, EO, SWG, etc. Sure, they all fizzled out or whatever in the end, but most of these games had a good run for a few years at least. These new ones are just utter shit out of the gate in most cases.

    CU is fucking vaporware. There is a reason all their programmers keep bailing

    Got any sources for that? I've checked youtube yesterday and found this video:

    And from what the dude says back in may(when the video was posted) it appeared that it's all well.

    It's still a tech demo after 7 years. Both Crowfall and Pantheon (a failed kickstarter) have more actual playable gameplay at this point

    You from the future? The last two western MMOs at that kind of scale were launched five years ago.

    You left out tons of unsuccessful MMOs that nobody remembers because they were unsuccessful

    I remember those (e.g. Vanguard), but their ratio was fairly low, compared to today, when it's pretty much 100%, other than shit like ESO and FF14.

    The studio has begun working on the last major milestone of the game (then it's bug fixes and polish).

    This milestone includes:
    • the Frostweaver (final class)
    • caravans
    • mounts
    • refineries
    • remaining disciplines
    • the Dregs (GvG campaign)
    • ability to dynamically add, move and destroy buildings
    • etc.

    Any news on "soft launch"? The only reason I don't play this is because I'm tired of progression resets.

    It's playable in the sense that there's always at least one campaign running and the gameplay loop is there (gathering, crafting, leveling, siege, PvP) but still doesn't have the polish and bug fix necessary. Some people have been "playing/testing" the game for a while.

    There are still at least 2 wipes (for 5.110 and soft launch) remaining. 5.110 is planned for February and soft launch sometime in 2020.

    The big update most people have been waiting for is finally up. Looks like backers will be able to play tomorrow.
