Crowfall - Throne War MMO Catch All

Ah vague packages, what the heck am I buying exactly; alpha 2, closed beta 1, 2, 3 ? currently pre-alpha 5?

Alpha has been expanded... currently Alpha 5, but as far as who has access the last test included Pre-Alpha 1 through Beta 3 test groups

alright I'm in on a Patron Starter Pack, a bit hesitant to do much until the final wipe has occurred but might as well start exploring and learning about to make it easier later.

eta: hmm, is bloodline race changeable? yup! not seeing where those initial rocks to kill your vessel and start over were., found it, just took a bit to understand the map and such

I believe that Bloodline passives are based on your race choice.

Haha yes, I was summoned by some GWJ's email-notification about something I don't even remember now - after couple years of absence.
So I checked Crowfall, Camelot Unchained and R.I.P. Shroud of the Avatar threads (the last one obviously just for funsies).

The development of this game is still going and the final milestone is expected to launch February 2020.

It includes:
- the Dregs (GvG campaign)
- the Frostweaver
- caravans
- mounts
- refineries
- ability to create, move and destroy buildings
- remaining disciplines
- etc.

Just got my closed beta invite. Any GWJ activity in this game?

I'm an early adopter. Still debating on jumping in or not.

Arise thread. So just got an invite to the closed beta for this. Started playing. It looks like it still has a long way to go. It has a lot of the fundamentals. Combat, crafting, PvP, bases. But all of it is is pretty bare bones. I like the idea its going for. Almost makes me think of planetside.

That said i think its at least another 2-4 years away from being done. There just not enough content. Balance and design needs a lot of work. Enemy types are pretty few. Lots of basic UI and inventory tweaks then need to be done. Besides the tutorial no quests at all. Overall I'd say this is still an alpha game not a beta. Still has potential though.

This is being launched this year according to them. I'm also not a fan of them adding a BR mode. It undermines what they initially were going for and will pull players away from the main mode.

I don't think it is too out of whack with what their plans are for the realms. You had different tiers that were, realm v realm, factional, and free for all. Battle Royale seems like a good testbed for FFA.

If anything, all those modes will split the population already or waste dev resources by creating a mode that only a tiny minority wants to play or is abandoned after a few weeks.

That just seems plain unrealistic for me. I could see one year and then early access not a release. Except that sort of are already doing that. They have a pretty solid base and really just need polish and content. But they need a lot of it. Especially for a MMO. Like I watched that video from the 2018 post. It's not a huge difference to what's there now.

While adding BR? Little late for that trend and pretty sure there's already MMO style versions of that which are probable way better. The PVP realm vs realm stuff seems way more interesting.
