  1. I'd prefer that tbh. WoW didn't launch with hundreds of addons that play the game for you afaik and there shouldn't be any available for Classic on launch either imo. I understand that a lot of work has gone into addons over the years and I appreciate all the effort but I'd prefer if AH scanning addons, quest/raid helpers, decursive etc weren't available (even if they were at some point later in vanilla, I wouldn't know). The ones like pfUI are another story ofc but I would imagine that Blizz will update the UI somewhat for Classic anyway. The community will cry no matter what they do.
  2. Well, the CF devs always said that this was a hobby project that they're doing cuz they like coding or something, and that they'd be content to play with just a handful of friends and family so I'd imagine this doesn't affect them. Personally, I'm super excited about the news and happy to leave all this private server nonsense behind me. In hindsight it was totally not worth it.
  3. These comments kinda highlight the fact that there have always been two separate CF communities imo: The one in discord/beta and the one here on the forums (with some overlap between the two ofc, but still). I assume that the first one is doing fine since Darkrasp says that no one has left the beta, but it's pretty obvious that the forum community has been dying due to a combination of slow progress, majority of the staff abandoning the forums, and the elysium drama(s). I guess it's understandable that the forum wasn't given much attention, especially at a stage when the server wasn't ready yet, and since it was going to be swallowed whole by the masses anyway when CF was released. Still, it sucks cuz it wasn't always the case. The announcement that we would be part of Elysium and would have to migrate to their forums (almost no one did) was the final nail in the coffin ofc. Majority of the original forum community will no doubt be back for the server itself but I highly doubt many will bother to participate as actively as they once did, let alone donate to the project, after all this.
  4. Everyone's "crawling back" to say this ofc: I was going to put Alexensual there first but figured people wouldn't like seeing him being mentioned even for silly purposes.
  5. According to Darkrasp's post the main reasons why things needed to change were: 1. Asura's lack of time to develop 2. Fears of Asura facing legal trouble for being a US citizen and in charge of CF 3. Asura's and Crogge's lack of time to run the project. 1 Will be fixed by this Niko person. No elysium involvement needed (unless he is already working for elysium *tinfoil*) 3 Could be fixed by handing different parts of the leadership to different people (1 in charge of overseeing development (niko), 1 in charge of PR (someone from CM/GM team maybe? etc.) So as far as I can see the only real reason why they "need" Elysium is to keep it safe from Blizzard. And yet the private server scene is full of projects that do just that without selling their souls to Elysium. The only notable projects that have been shut down by Blizz as far as I know were nost and felmyst. Felmyst failed because Gummy was a murican hosting in the US so yeah, no surprise there. And the general consensus seems to be that Nost didn't have to be shut down: they either freaked out or wanted to get hired by Blizz. So why is Elysium so essential to CF's survival? It's not. Convenient for them maybe, and probably what Crogge wanted all along because he's already running Elysium but hardly the only possible choice seeing how other servers and projects exist. So to answer your question, they could have asked the community they already had for help and donations maybe, and then go to Elysium if it isn't enough? Or just continue with the old plan, with new leadership structure and main dev? With Asura no longer in charge and the project hosted outside the US I don't understand what the problem would have been. Oh, and they also don't have to throw away the forums and discord they already have but they will do so anyway because reasons? Anyway, feel free to point out the flaws in my thinking. I fully admit to being clueless about most of this stuff.
  6. My thoughts exactly regarding certain staff- and community members who I thought we're cool but have started bashing and belittling other people's opinions and valid concerns instead. He or Asura should have done that ages ago to save everyone's time instead of feigning interest imo.
  7. > Proceeds to write a wall of text with 500+ words. Welcome back.
  8. Fixed for perfect solution to make the launch stable and playable! :-D
  9. This would almost be worth it just for the amount of butthurt it would cause on reddit but nah, not worth the hassle. How would you define a CF community member anyway? Post count? Post/reputation ratio? Just having a forum account? Some people have probably lurked for ages too but haven't posted anything and some people prefer discord. Probably too much effort to make a list of people who count as "part of the community". I think I've said this b4 somewhere but I'd prefer that they just give a rough estimate when the server launches instead of an exact time so that player would trickle in over the day instead of everyone trying to log in at the same time.
  10. Lock Asura in a room like in Misery and force him to finish his masterpiece. Yes, and test leashing/aggro reset range too by stabbing that bear and running away.
  11. hype

    They can't be that bad if you kept reading that long! (I do think that 1-3 were better than 4-5 though).
  12. hype

    ... I'm not a big fan of prequels myself but I'll still prolly try it. :´(
  13. Lies. Lies and slander! Without him the fishing skripts would still be in a sorry, stock mangos, un-blizzlike, post-nerf, x7 rates -state, which would take at least an extra year of development and beta testing to fix.
  14. I don't think I could handle a book release by GRRM and CF release on the same week.
  15. hype

    Been playing Life is Strange and Ironman/no reloads Baldur's Gate + leveling a paladin on elysium. The trilogy was really good. The standalone books were even better. Best Served Cold was my fav. The Shattered Sea trilogy by the same author was also great.
  16. You mean the TV show, not the book series, right? Right?!
  17. no u I won't do so until the server has launched and at least 48 hours have passed without it being shut down True, but it seems people always come back when drama happens or a promising server is released so I'm pretty sure everyone will be there for CF launch too.
  18. Alexensual says we're allowed to play there again so it's alright. ... To those who are disappointed by slow progress, keep in mind that things could be worse. Much worse: http://www.pcgamer.com/grimoire-heralds-of-the-winged-exemplar-is-now-live-on-steam-after-20-years-of-development/#article-comments That game has literally been in development longer than I've been alive.
  19. I guess so but people usually first pick popular joke/real names that are hardly original anyway. The only people that are really affected are staff members and streamers that have their names taken by trolls. That, and people with big egos who think they're entitled to a certain name because they use it elsewhere. Be original and come up with your own, RP-friendly names, I say.
  20. I don't understand why all these hyped projects always post big count down clocks and give players the exact launch time in the first place. Why not just give the players a rough estimate, like "server will launch in the next 48 hours" and then sneakily open the floodgates at 3 am so the players will trickle in instead of everyone rushing in like its the black friday at a mall.
  21. True, but they should also be praised for making games that are so easily moddable in the first place. Most companies don't bother. There's a mod called "Requiem - The Roleplaying Overhaul" that delevels the world and basically turns it into a proper RPG. You need to be like lvl 20+ to be able to kill dragons for instance, the first dragon at the watch tower is wounded and you have help anyway so you can do it at level 10 or 15 maybe. To get there you need to clear the first Draugr dungeon however and it's impossible for low level characters. It also makes the game really hard in general, character builds are more different and you can't be a master of everything. It's 1000 times better than the base game really. Only problem is its somewhat hard to install correctly but there are guides.
  22. Skyrim is still good cuz mods and pretty graphics. Fallout 4 was a garbage RPG though and the mods suck too.
