‘Reputation should matter’: Crowfall ties your account name to your character name
Anonymous griefers, Crowfall might not be the game for you. In May’s developer Q&A video, the team clarified that players’ character names will be the same as their account names in order to make reputation important within the community.
“Players enforce their own rules,” said Design Lead Thomas Blair about the lawless Dregs campaign world. “People who cause problems generally find that they will have a bad time. And in Crowfall, you can’t hide from a bad reputation because that’s your account name. So it’s not like, ‘Oh, I’ll go create an alt and fool more people.’ Reputation should matter.”
Other topics discussed included taking over points of interests, testing citadels, commerce in a rule-free world, and transporting materials across the world. You can watch the 13-minute video after the break!
