  1. https://forum.elysium-project.org/topic/52889-legacy-crusade-the-journey-doesnt-end-here/ I just do not see how this isn't the final nail in the coffin for us. The only way this works out for Crestfall is if the realm is released within the year, but I have a feeling IF, it is released it will be near the release of this TBC server and being overshadowed. And thats a big IF they even release Crestfall on elysium anymore at this point.
  2. Hello one and all. So there is an awful lot happening at the moment, more of this anon. Darkrasp has updated the FAQ here: To make it slightly more relevant and change some of the details that were being misinterpreted, sometimes willfully. But nothing and nobody is perfect. Would you all do us a favour and scan through it quickly and leave any comments or constructive criticism on this thread please? We'll take the suggestions on board and make any changed deemed appropriate. The FAQ should be the first thing people read on the forums and it's important it makes the right impression. I'll be back later.
  3. So just in case... there is no video in this thread this thread does not suggest or imply that any video will be released shortly this is just a fact-finding, opinion orientated thread to get feedback Right, now that we've got that out of the way we have some simple maths. This is the 21st March, if our devs deliver on their aspirations then CF will release in the next nine months, worst case scenario. Our expert media people will be required to provide a number of promotional events to highlight the server and its capabilities. The most potent of these formats will be by video. Looking at the timelines and based on the continuation of beta testing (now with vastly improved numbers), as a community you'd hope that we'd get our first new video before the start of the summer. That being the case, a list of very simple questions: What would you like to see in the video(s)? Why specifically do you want to see these things? Should the videos contain a number of different things or concentrate on one specific element? How long should the video be? Would you prefer the videos to be low-key, technical and minimalist or OMG flashy neon awesomeness? Somewhere in between? Lastly, should the video just let the facts speak for themselves or should we compare and contrast with stock MaNGOS servers? Again just to reiterate, the expectation is that the community here gives this some thought and comes back with some good ideas and suggestions. Not saying that we'll implement any of these, but I'll pass them on as a suggestion box, hopefully stuffed. I'd prefer to open this topic up early now, rather than have people put a lot of hard work into a video that the community give a collective meh to. As always, thanks for your time.
  4. Hi everyone, i 've read a bit about that serveur, but it stays confuse for me. So i would have a simple question: When this server will come out, will it be in vanilla version or already in TBC version? Or maybe there is already a vanilla realm that will evolve to BC? Sorry if that subject has been talked about, i just couldn't find answers to that and didn't quite get it ! Cheers

  6. Ladies and gentlemen, our Alpha preview is online! Share and like this video if you enjoy the content. Feedback is welcome
  7. Hey guys , Yesterday I made the Facebook and Twitter profile pictures + banners and I recorded it turning it into this speedart. So if people want to see the progress of me making these banners and profile pictures here is the video ! And don't forget to leave a like / comment if you like this kind of stuff would also be nice if you can comment on the forums or on the video if you would like to see more of these types of videos in the future for bigger projects. Kind regards, Audio / Rhythm Designs
  8. I did this logo while we're all waiting for #CrestfallHypeTrain. It was just for fun, and i though it could be nice that people submit their own logo ideas. Ok, mine is quite classic/unachieved, but i like old recipes and i had to spend time . I assume that some guy can do it waaaaay better, so DO IT. So, if you use Photoshop/Illustrator, just post here ! What's yours ?
  9. Hi, just started following Crestfall and really interested in helping with testing. Does anyone have any information on how to sign up?
  10. Dear devs, Please give us some clue when to expect server opening... so players can see, if there is any point to play in other servers or not...dont want to waste time on other servers if this is opening soon. Please
  11. Greetings. Recently the members on the Crestfall forum went over 1000. As such I thought I would give a review of where things stand currently. Under normal circumstances, I would expect the administrators to be looking carefully and parsing these figures because they are very important. Activity on the forums are an accurate indicator on what the chances are of success with the realms, provided they are properly scripted and meet generic expectations. The important part here is that growth on the forums tend to be exponential, and so therefore we can expect to see a rapid growth in figures as we go from closed Beta to open Beta and then PTR. While the administrators should have better facilities to check the numbers out, any member can see these for themselves under the 'Activity' drop down menu on your top left main page, select 'search' and then use the 'member search' tab on the right hand side. The search member button has a 'sort by' option where you can get the information I gathered. This might work as a direct link here So the first topic is # of members... So to explain: 'Placeholders' number 623. This is the term we use for people who want to join the forums by reserving their chosen name only. A lot of these names are nonsense names as a considerable percentage will never end up being players. We will only truly know what that percentage is when the realms are launched. If Crestfall require membership on the forums as a perquisite to play on the realms, we can easily extrapolate the # of players compared to # of members. 'Avatars' number 175. This is a step up from placeholders as these individuals bothered their collective arses to create an avatar. Yes, I know it doesn't take long but we call these the '50%ers' meaning there is a 50% chance that they will end up contributing in some way. This could mean one post, or it could mean playing on a realm. 'Posters' number of 351. So these are members that have contributed at least one post to the forums. This pretty much 33% of the member population. From experience I can tell you that this is both very high and very encouraging. 'Staff' well duh. Our second graph is join dates: So as expected, there was a sharp take-up on member when the forums launched in April. This is the usual collection of bored camp followers committed players that join after every new realm announcement. Thereafter we had drops to 80 in May and then 47 in June. While taking into account the push back from the original hype, if I was Asura and Darkrasp at this stage I would be showing signs of stress and concern. Thankfully in July we had a sharp take-up of 167 and then as you can see August the spike of 623 and counting. One of the reasons for this is that the summer holidays are actually beneficial for forums like this, as people are bored, have time on their hands, and are prepared to make an effort for these social activities. There is a long way to go. Nostalrius had over 78,000 members on March 2016 before the C&D announcement. But considering there is another 4 months to go before realm launch I am pretty confident we'll get to between 10k and 20k before that point. A median line of 15k should be enough for viable populations on both realms.
  12. Greets. So this topic came about from a number of conversations I had with other forum members, sometimes here, sometimes in Discord. I won't mention any names owing to the fact that I don't want them to be guilty by association, but happy to credit/debit as required. This is a reasonably serious topic. It's about what the community feels constitutes Crestfall becoming a success story. There's no one answer, there are many. Also, success is likely to be based on a number of different components, not just one. For that reason we have a multiple choice poll. I was doing some experimentation today on that on the basis, but my limited understanding of private servers will ensure I may miss some important topic. So, if you don't see something that you consider critically important to the success of CF, just drop a post below and I'll add it if deserves inclusion. Just remember not to actually vote until I amend it. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ POPULATION There's been quite a debate about the population on Crestfall, mostly in connection with population caps. Both revolve around each other. Clearly, for a server to be successful a reasonable population is critical. You really need ~1000 people online on a consistent level to constitute a popular server. This is currently the case with K2 and Elysium. The pop cap at present is seen to be 5000-5500 with 3000-3500 seen as being ''Blizzlike''. High populations mean a number of good and bad things. On the positive side, high populations ensure community, PvP, instances, elite quests, the economy and at a later stage, raids, are functional and successful. On the negative side, too high a population can lead to lag, log on issues, contention on quests/mobs/items and gathering resources. It seems that CF will prevent most of these by clustering and dynamic spawn rates, but the potential for issues are still there. Now everyone wants a healthy population, so from my viewpoint if you take this as a priority, it's because you prefer Nostalrius-type numbers. So by picking population you are saying that 5000 should be the minimum we aim for on the realm at any one time, and more is preferable. RAID FUNCTIONALITY So we all now that raid progression is linear in terms of difficulty. Therefore Molton Core for example is pretty easy for 1.12 talented, equipped and specced toons as MC was never retroactively fixed to take into account these changes. As we move to BWL, ZG, AQ and Naxx, the difficulties increase but not to the point that will cause huge problems for high end raiders with their knowledge, skill sets and min/maxing. But that's just it, these elite guilds want a challenge, they don't expect to be constantly wiping and failing but they do want to see bosses put up a big fight so they can have some fun. This seems perfectly reasonable to me. In addition, on other servers the scripting and functionality of the bosses including loot drops goes from the appalling to the laughable. For Crestfall to be successful therefore, it needs to find some balance in remaining ''Blizzlike'' and yet provide this challenge. Therefore, changes are proposed in tweaking how bosses function so to maintain the element of surprise and thus provide a challenge rather than taking the easy option of just doubling the hit points. Critically, elite raiders are small in number but large in impact. If the top tier guilds think CF instances and raids are well scripted and challenging, it will be worth its weight in gold in relation to good publicity. For scrubs like me that would like to do part-time raiding, having functional and well-scripted raids is also important. This is a self-evident priority, but there are those that don't particularly care about end-content and may just give this option a miss PVP What do I know about PvP? Not a lot. But there are times that you just want to get to know your toon/class much better and play under demanding and stressful conditions, so I understand the situation only too well. For the record, I like AB and AV. I would love to play the original and best AV. For die-hards, playing real AV and world PVP may be the only reason why you want to play on Crestfall. Unless there is cross-BG's you're unlikely to see me. If we do have cross-BG's then I'll hire myself out as a decoy as I know you all want my head on your mantelpiece. So if functional PvP is your priority vote here. PATHING When I was in Nostalrius even a scrub like me saw a lot of bugs, most of these involved pathing for mobs in caves. In nearly every starter zone, there is a cave system where you have to enter to kill x mobs or an x elite boss etc. This is designed by Blizz to challenge your skillsets as you need to be aware of aggro radius, mob respawns , mana/regen etc etc. Not a huge challenge of course but if the mobs don't path correctly you may find yourself in constant combat, or have mobs which pulse other mobs through roofs or all sorts of unwarranted actions. On the reverse side, correct pathing of pets is also an issue for Warlocks and Hunters if their pets exhibit the same issues. You could end up aggroing an entire cave system if your pet doesn't path correctly. This is a absolute MaNGOS issue, so if CF can get this right from the get-go it positively reinforces the perspective that this is an original, new and fresh emulator, better than all the rest. If pathing is an issue for you, it's because you want CF to show how much better it is than MaNGOS or because you play a class that required this as a bottom line. ECONOMY This is actually a very complex subject. A functioning economy is based on so many different factors I don't know where to begin. But for example, it includes putting in preventative measures against Devilsaur/Black Lotus cartels, banning of Chinese accounts, modifying bosses in DM to prevent solo farming and so forth. The developers have ensured that the worst proponents for exploits in Nostalrius have been recruited to play test the server to ensure that all the old tricks don't count here. This should make the servers fair for all. What you put in you should get out. If a functioning, fair economy is important for you, tick this box. BUG FIXING, FEEDBACK, CM's So we all know the issues with MaNGOS servers because we've all seen this issues before, right? So CF will do away with these issues as it's a completely different core, right? Key thing here, as some wise people pointed out is that CF is likely to have its own unique issues. At server launch, things will not go smoothly. It's the way of things. Even after open Beta and PTR when the realms go live with the population demands, we will find that there are issues unforeseen by the developers and the realm testers. This is perfectly normal. What's critical therefore is how quickly the devs respond to these issues. Encouragingly, because the devs have developed their own core and not copy/pasted it from somewhere else, they can identify the issues and resolve them very quickly based on anecdotal conversations. What's critical therefore, is how this works on live realms. Does CF have the staff and expertise in place to deal with multiple bug fixing played out under reddit conditions? The first month of this server will determine it's lifespan and success. As Roy Keane said 'Fail to prepare, prepare to fail'. If you see community response and bug fixing as a priority, tick this box. PTE Which stands for 'Progression Through Expansion' or in other words, after 16-18 months we get catapulted into The Burning Crusade either by choice (PvP) or by default (PvE). This in private server realms has never happened before and I think this is the very large Ace card the devs have burning in their back pocket. Let me put this into perspective for you.....to be truly Blizzlike you have to have PTE. We all went through this process in retail so why not do it in CF? Doing this potentially prolongs our involvement to multiple of years. 16-18 months to TBC, 16-18 months to WotLK and then if you have any sense you would stop right there but hey, sense can be in short demand. Just imagine this, the same players, the same friends/enemies/guilds, together for a decade or so. It's awesome, and it's awesome for this server only. Vote for the awesome. COMMUNITY Does exactly what it says on the can. Mostly on these forums. Enough said. Proud of being Crestfallen? Vote here.... JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING So this is for the scrubs like me. On Nost, I could forgive the pathing in caves. I could forgive the DC on the boat to Feathermoon Isle. I could forgive the fact that you would end up 30' above the flightmaster on landing. What I couldn't forgive is that the fishing bobber wasn't working on 35% of the catches meaning you had to guess when the bobber worked. People like me are 'generalists'. It means that we are happy to work in buggy environments but certain things drive us over the edge. So it's that lack of testing that makes the difference between a great server and an also-ran. I talk about the weather in vanilla and people just don't get it. For people like me, having functional weather and fish bobbing is what will make this a proper emulator. But I can understand if others go meh. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ So go ahead and vote. Please be kind so that I can rewind the voting topics if you feel it doesn't include your own priorities
