13

As Crowfall tackles 2016 head-on, the team behind this PvP MMO is celebrating its 100,000th “Crow” to register on its website. ArtCraft posted new 2016 backer packages as the game has reached about 25,000 backers and $2.52M in donations to date.

Crowfall has been running limited alpha tests this week. “We are running a few snap tests of the Hunger Dome this week!” ArtCraft posted. “This version has a fully textured environment, including the buildings and the keep. No updates yet on the client controller, but it’s coming along nicely and we hope to get it in front of you soon!”

If you’ve fallen behind in your Crowfall news, then it would behoove you to read the latest Kickstarter update that summarizes all of the events and developments over the past month.

Cambruin I think that every account registered on Crowfall.com should receive a weekly newsletter. If you’ve registered for the Beta in 2014 and haven’t received any of those emails yet, I suggest to send a message to support[at]artcraftent.com. They usually answer and fix issues pretty quickly.

I agree with you that many companies that crowdfund don’t prioritize ethics and morality, and I doubt that crowdfunding in general is beneficial to the players.

solipsis Ex-developers and project leaders from SWG, Shadowbane, SWTOR, and a few others. It’s shaping up to be an interesting game already if the combat prototypes are any indication.

why is this game so popular? is it being made by some famous developer like Lord British?

I’m starting to get really opposed to this while kickstarter logic. I’m an ex-Shadowbane player who got an email to notify me about an upcoming game that had several Shadowbane devs at the helm. An email that asked me to sign up for beta, which I did. This was long before the game had any coverage at all, long before the kickstarter campaign had even launched. I haven’t received a single email since. I don’t want to come across as if I’m entitled to anything, but have the ba**s to call your game for what it is and more so, what it is not; a beta or alpha. It’s a B2P whit free entry ’till official launch.

I feel like all sense of morality has left the western markets. We’re being sold nothing but air. We’re supposed to buy early without any guarantee that we’ll like the product, without any guarantee that it’ll turn out to be what they promised.

Hunger Dome is pretty fun but I’m sitting the next few out until the client-predicted controller launches. Really excited since it should be a huge improvement on how movement and attacks feel.

Only a year since Crowfall was first announced, already 100K registrations, 25K backers and +$6M in founding. That’s pretty impressive for an independent studio.

Testing the game is fun, but I can’t wait to play the real game, the Throne War MMO, with large scale battles and sieges, caravan transportation, factions and alliances, political struggles, building and crafting. Will be fun >=)

Xijit As you say, it’s probably better for you to wait that the game is getting closer to launch before trying it. 

Several things have improved but there’s still a lot of stuff to get added before it start looking as the “throne war mmo” it’s supposed to become.

In Siege Perilous test (in March) it should already resemble more to a MMORPG, with sieges, building destruction, larger teams, character progression and physical ranged attacks, among other additions.
