  1. Why wasn't this "niko" and other guys like niko brought in earlier? Why not reach out to the community? And if he's so good, why merge with Elysium? If hes as good but can actually contribute then CF should launch in the next 4 months easily? Right? So again, why merge? Also where did this narrative of Asura being some Mr. Robot level type coder come from? He wrote most of CF core from scratch yes but basically working with average coders at best like Dark who himself said he's quite new and average and maybe a couple others who seems to be barely active and then some beta testers, to them im sure he's amazing. Who else are we comparing too? Seems the only real issue here is time and management, not difficulty.
  2. This right here. So much bull shit about RL issues affecting the development. Maybe try interacting with the community more over the past 2 years, asking them for help, looking and reaching out for more developers, not just relying on the information of a very small amount of closed beta testers then barely opening up the doors for more testers even after repeated requests from the community when all they wanted was to contribute and help. The arrogance of the devs here. Like holy shit, it's a fucking hobby project of an ancient game that, let's be real, most people, even Blizz barely pay attention or care about anymore. Way to go CF.
  3. This is one of the biggest red flags and disappointments for me. It's constantly @Darkrasp relaying information from @Asura without him every posting or interacting with the community. If this is/was his project why can't he at least post directly and answer the questions, questions not even Dark has all the answers too and has to wait for his approval. Where is there any other contact with any other developers either? Some back and forth in the public Discord but other than that no real communication other than Dev Blogs and only from Darkrasp. And only Dark answering any and all questions on forums and Discord. You'd think if Asura cared so much he'd care about the community too which is really what the game's about and show a little more interest. We all have huge IRL responsibilities, gimme a break. And all the "concern" over any ramifications of hosting this server were answered again and again as not going to be an issue. Be more honest with us at least about what was going on as this has obviously been going on for months. And yeah i get it "they don't owe us anything", "its their hobby project they work on in their spare time", "they have other responsibilities" etc. But why even have this forum then or re-open the public discord? If that's the constant attitude then just create a nice fun server for you and your friends and stop even trying to half ass communicate with us pretending like Open Beta/Launch is in the near future. Its a Private server project of a 13 year old game. You're not developing the next MMO, don't need to go total zero-dark thirty on everything. I mean honestly, what was the point of the project? Sad too, cause it seems whenever there's a post calling the project out or just trying to steer them in the right direction, even when it's from two of the strongest and most dedicated individuals, community managers as well, @Elicas and @Outstanding there's just a shrug of the head and an eye roll response from the Devs/crazy fan bois, not seeming to care or listen with a, we'll do it our way and who cares what you think, its our project attitude and then more silence.
  4. It's almost September. So that's 4 months till end of 2017 and still no sign you're anywhere close to Open Beta. Why not at least be more honest and open about your expectations for when the project would actually get released. That's all this community has been begging for, honesty. You all kept saying you were close, what's 4 more months? obviously it's not gonna be a 2017 release. again, could have just been more honest about this a while ago. You said CF will still have it's own core. What about all the other features discussed and promised with CF. Buffed raids? Will pop cap remain the same? VPNs? etc. How will Ely implement their features like when it comes to gold farming, or building up walls in BGs... Not sure why more questions weren't answered here... for how long you had this written up. Also, i love hearing from you @Darkrasp and appreciate it, but does @Asura ever plan on saying anything ever again or answering any questions?
  5. Cool, thanks for the detailed responses.
  6. Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego
  7. Few questions. 1. A)What would you do, if even after all the raid "buffing" guilds were just breezing through the content so quickly a month or 2 after launch? Or vice versa, how quickly would you nerf content if it was not being cleared quickly or would you just let the community figure it out? B) will add-ons like bigwigs and other raid adfons become obsolete due to significant changes in raid encounters? 2. Will there be a /world channel or will chat be kept to specific zone or linked through cities? 3. How will you address AH botting and add-ons like auctioneer. 4. Do you have any plans to police monopolizing like cartels/mafia? 5. Think it was almost a year ago many of us had a lengthy discussion on ironfoe and procs/proc rates. Any official information on how procs with weapons/totems/trinkets will work together and their official proc rates that you can share? 6. On the PvE realm will PvP be flagged on during world boss encounters?
  8. @Darkrasp good points. I agree botting is a problem, should have rephrased that better, my point was just be careful not to punish some smart AH players because I don't think a few players doing it legally without botting is a real problem. In your scenarios on the searches, would that limit add-ons like auctioneer when it scans and searches the whole AH to get the price of every item on there? I use auctioneer all the time as I'm sure most people do, but if we had to just use the blizzard auction that wouldn't be bad either. I personally think the best solution would be to just ban any auctioneer type addon and let everything run through the blizzard AH. Of course making sure it can sort properly unlike on any other server.
  9. That is such a slippery slope. Whats are the limits? After 10 or 20 searches? Limit auctions after 20-30 were created? What about farmers with who may have 10-15 stacks of leather plus another 15+ different stacks of herbs or whatever else? Then what if they then want to buy tons of pots/herbs/mats/gear all at once? What are the limits on this? You can play the AH making good money just buying and selling 20 items or 50 items, limit that though and you're limiting regular farmers who may just have farmed a lot of stuff all at once or buyers who need to buy lots of mats for different professions/gear/whatever else. Example, i usually end up switching to engineering after I've farmed my gear and enough gold and then buy tons of mats off the AH all at once to get it up. Done this with alchemy before too. It works the same with lots of tailors who buy out tons of cloth. How do you limit something like this? AH bots aren't really a problem, screwed up economies come from: Overpopulation of Private Servers (this is really once of the biggest reasons) Gold selling/buying Mafias/Cartels monopolizing certain goods/products Broken nodes and spawn timers Other glitches/bugs/exploits that are everywhere on all these servers Way down the bottom of the list is a few AH players. You guys claim to you will have the best scripting and closest blizzlike experience, well then let that take care of any economy inflation. There are always people who will play it somehow, but it's such an exaggeration to blame them for inflation. They may slightly raise the price of an item here and there once in a while, but the things i mentioned above are far more damaging to the economy.
  10. Oh don't even get me started on SWTOR. Just gief me kotor3
  11. It's time to just start playing the better side @Elicas
  12. You're talking about features that aren't part of the game till at least the 3rd expansion when open beta hasn't even launched. Let's see when and if the project launches and how well it does through vanilla and onwards. you're talking years from now, worry and talk about those game aspects later.
  13. Ah, that's too bad. Been on for most of the day and haven't seen anyone on, figures lol
  14. Are you guys still playing on Darrowshire? I've been bored and haven't played in a while so may join if it's still going.
  15. Has anyone here got r14 on a PvE before? Curious how it went and how long it took
