Yes, you can push people off cliffs in Crowfall

    
131

The folks behind “throne war simulator” MMORPG Crowfall have released two new archetypes today. The first is the Elven Frostweaver, a ranged DPS reminiscent of Drow; the second is the Guinecean Duelist, an adorable dexterity-oriented melee character who will have the Ratonga fans in our audience squeaking with glee.

ArtCraft has also posted a new game physics FAQ that covers everything from collision detection to friendly fire on the Voxel Farm tech platform it announced earlier this week. Collision detection, by the way, is totally happening.

Can players block other players from moving? Yes they can, which should allow for some interesting battlefield formations. However, not all characters will have the same mass, so a larger character like a Centaur will have no trouble pushing a much smaller Assassin out of the way. Also, some characters may have special powers that enable them to teleport past other players, while others may have powers that prevent players from passing them. Controlling the battlefield will be a key strategy to master!

Let’s make sure we get the really important questions answered too.

Can I use physics to push another player off a cliff? Or down a mountain? Absolutely, assuming the force applied to them is enough to move their mass. Some of the characters have much more mass than others like the Centaur or the Champion.

ArtCraft has promised a character model creation livestream next Tuesday at 3:00 p.m. EST.

Nobody here seems to dislike MMORPG’s, they simply dislike dick behavior.

Nacho Biz it’s fine, but I swear it’s a squadron of tear-bears on this forum writing none sense 24/7 – like a second fucking job.
I don’t really understand why some of u bother to use your sparetime in a thing that doesn’t even interest you…
It’s like joining HF boards in NHL and talk none sense to hockey fans, because they like the sport.
WTF is wrong with you?

Nacho Biz As a survivor of ArcheAge cart blocking, I agree.

I’m sure lots of people will love it, I’m just not a fan of mechanics that can be easily refocused into griefing.

If for no other reason I like this because it is an effective way to stop everyone from instantly opting for the shortest race with the smallest hitbox.  Now there’s a true trade off: small and harder to hit, but also easier to hipcheck over the edge or shove face-first into that wall of spikes.

A Dad Supreme SomebodyYouUsedToKnow In it’s earlier days EQ2’s PVP-RP servers actually did have a fair amount of RP on them, much to my surprise.  i just got sick of having to look over my shoulders all the time while harvesting so fled back to the safer surroundings of PVE-RP.

Maybe if the devs were at all interested in putting out a game meant for other people to play and enjoy.  But Crowfall is pretty much shaping up to be another indie vanity project.

Spesh  There is character customisation, but archtypes are locked to races. Humanoid races will have both genders.

Um…that’s like asking me to describe what my ideal MMO would be. There is no point really to that, as I am sure it wouldn’t be other players consider ideal.
Though I tend to agree with your last sentence, for what that’s worth. :)
