Crowfall cuts together a highlight reel for its recent Eternal Champions esports event

    
15

Who has time to watch an esporting event from start to finish? Some of us work during the weekends. Some of us have other things to do. And there are those who would just rather have the whole affair summarized for the sake of convenience. Whatever your reason, Crowfall has made it easier for fans to get the gist of the recent Eternal Champions 2021 event thanks to this highlight reel.

The reel in question doesn’t necessarily put things together into any sort of chronological order, so it doesn’t explain how the rounds of competition shook down or that YggBrasil won it all; you’ll have to check the series’ brackets website for those details as well as VoDs of each leg of the tournament. What it does have is a lot of shots of frantic PvPing and shoutcasters talking about hungry sharks and how it’s all for the money. If you really want a minute’s worth of PvP sizzle reel, you can check out the video below.

If they’re already chasing after that eSports carrot, then I don’t expect this game to have much of a lifespan.

This is a pretty bad video. A lot of random scenes of random fights and a lot of random people being shown at the end where you cant even read their names because of how fast they are shown. Any person from Fiverr can do a better job of making a better video for $20.

Everytime i look at this game i get a “Gigantic MMO” feeling and i feel good.

Then i see the gameplay and i feel really bad.

I was asking myself: Why can’t i get into this? Now what i ask is: Who is this game for?

What even IS this game? What’s the concept behind it? What does it want to be?

Idk but with this art direction (not the spell effects) and alleged focus on crafting I feel like this game should’ve been a smaller scale pve centric game. Maybe it is just wishful thinking.

I guess I see game after game march down the hardcore pvp route only to whither and die before they’re realized. I have little hope.

But like, it’s not even the hardcore PvP route, is the NPE that leads to that route. The NPE to this game is, for the lack of a better term, completely dogshit. It has nothing to do with the game itself because it’s PvE, it ends abruptly and forces you to grind on a PvP focused game, the entirety of the game PvE zones feel i don’t know, useless?

Like, what do they want to build? A world? The way i see it, as long as the focus is this hardcore GvG gameplay, the rest of the game is superfluous and lackluster.

Wow. Lots of circles!

This was my main takeaway from the video. It’s a game about circles. Good circles? Bad circles? Neutral circles? Malicious circles? Who knows, but there sure are a lot of them!

the VO didn’t seem to match up well with what was going on, or maybe like I just didn’t get what was going on in context to their chatter

I don’t know who’s the target audience for this game. If it’s some PvP- focused game with no significant questing or options to escape PvP, I won’t even bother even if it was F2P.

Are you in the top 1% when PvP is concerned?
Do you enjoy supporting the top 1% with crafting/gathering?

If not, the game is not for you.

Crowfall is a MOBA now?

Can anyone explain what I just watched? I honestly haven’t the foggiest clue, nothing is remotely visually clear – just lots of AoE effects and circles everywhere. I guess this is nice for the fandom (still weird to have esports competitions for a game that’s not launched IMO, but maybe I’m an old fart who needs to get with the times), but I’m not sure it’s very effective as a marketing asset.

Still waiting on these smaller crowdfunded MMO’s to finally launch so I can give them a spin.

I think you can try to join Crowfall’s beta.

I’m sure there are ways to do so without buying packs, even. But with most of these crowdfunded MMO’s, I’m not invested (monetarily or otherwise) so I’m mostly just following them as they’re in development. Happy to let others do the testing now, and I’ll give them a spin when they’re “finished” and ready for launch.

As someone who played this, your approach is the best to take. The NPE of this game is absolute garbage, and if you wanna get into this, wait for better times indeed.
