Lost in Crowfall’s alpha? There’s a video for that – three videos, in fact

If you’re a Crowfall backer currently logging into the game’s current test phase for the first time because you are too impatient to wait for the game’s delayed soft launch, you’re not alone. And if you’re lost and wandering around trying to figure out what the heck to do because the game has changed so much since its original Kickstarter design docs, you’re also not alone. ArtCraft has a plan, however.

“Although we have a wonderful How to Play page that we work to keep updated, often it gets overlooked, or people are too excited to jump into the game to read it,” says the studio today. “So we set about creating a series of tutorial videos that cover the main aspects of Crowfall. These videos are meant to be brief overviews that will get a new player started, but will still allow for discovery and theorycrafting as they delve deeper into each of these systems.”

Fun fact: You can actually watch the vids from inside the game lobby, so no need to exit out to look up what the hell is going on. The first three are down below, including the basic welcome vid, the harvesting vid, and the gear vid. Enjoy!

I don’t get it. How is the Racial Discipline “permanent”? Is it not the same as the vessel slot? I thought that players could essentially find and/or craft new vessels in order to gain different racial abilities and/or ‘super powers’ related to rare vessels that were once heroes of the battlefield fallen.

So…how does a ‘Crow’ make new vessels and make it a professional task at that? And how do players equip new vessels if they’re not shown in any of the equipping slots or anywhere relative to the videos?

This will be another hard lesson for devs trying to focus too much attention on the PvP player. Fail incoming…

umm it’s specifically a PvP game and always has been… not everything has to be a wow clone catering to the PvE crowd, there can be many different types of games existing in the overall MMO category.

Is this game releasing anytime soon? Seems like it’s been kinda rambling along.

Sitting on the fence with this one. Want to see how some of their systems work out like player looting etc.

I login and get put in this field or something with statues and have no idea what I’m supposed to do so am just waiting until it’s further along.

I’m with you. I don’t recall the video that prompted me to back this on kickstarter mentioning that I would enter the world without even a starter weapon or abilities, and would have to harvest trees to make my own weapon. I don’t want hand holding as such, but if I wanted to play a survival game I would be playing one already released. A basic tutorial would be helpful, and not one of those three videos was helpful.

Make a weapon. Very easy. There are multiple tutorials on doing so. If you don’t want to watch them, ask in Chat in game. Community is very helpful.

I actually got going today, decided to install after the posts here today. Made all the tools and some gear but the lag got bad. My net is like 26ms but the msg number was huge and I got disconnected a few times. Not sure if this is happening for everyone or just me. Asked on their forums but got no reply yet.
