Crowfall shows off the Champion’s design

Everyone has preferences about classes and playstyles in MMOs, and if you’re the sort of player who plays only characters built like trucks wielding separate, smaller trucks as weapons, you’ll be quite happy with the new preview of Crowfall‘s Champion. Yes, that’s the Champion’s deal: being enormous with an enormous weapon, and crushing everything. Several elements of design combine to emphasize the feeling of slow power ; the archetype has a three-hit combat sequence and moves slower than normal but deals massive damage once it gets into range.

The Champion can also jump directly to its target, lest you think you can avoid it. It’s a real monster, in other words. Also on the monster block is creative director J. Todd Coleman, who underwent something of a transformation as detailed in the video below. That one isn’t about the Champion; it’s more of a cautionary tale about the best-laid plans of mice and men.

I try liking the studio, but for people so desperate for funding, they shouldn’t be wasting DONATED money on making these videos. Its already bad enough they’ve actually brought on two people who’s single purpose is to create these videos using DONATED money…

Samizdat Yeah the champion seems super-neat but the reverse chain pull seems weird compared to like a typical charge.

Samizdat JayPower Did I say that they did smart guy? Just look at that picture and look at the FFXIV warrior trainer Curious Gorge. It’s the same fucking thing.

Samizdat JayPower Warrior is a tank in FFXIV actually, but your point is still accurate. We need more Barbarians ala D&D, lightly armored scary as hell powerhouses with huge weapons.

JayPower Because a game released in 2010 invented the glass cannon rage-mechanic barbarian class.

Looks and sounds like a total rip-off of FFXIV’s Warrior.
