Hello Crows!

Known as the Empress of the Sea, Maeve is the Goddess of War and the Ruler of the Oceans. As the undisputed master of the blade, she glories in conquest. In combat, she has no equal. The Trial of Maeve is already an intense battle but anything can happen before June 12th. Earning favor rewards all winners with the Sigil of Maeve including her exclusive bonus stat: +2% Elemental Armor Bonus (offering an advantage in mitigating damage from fire, ice and electric attacks). Do you have a thirst for conquest running through your blood? Join the battle!

Meanwhile, back in the Crowfall development studio… 

Crowfall's War Stories bring to life the intense Throne War battles valiantly fought by Eternal Champions in Crowfall. In May, we premiered a new War Story, "Siege at Sunset". Based on a true factional battle, narrated by the guild leader who lived it. This story follows the heroic action of the Lords of Death guild, the smallest faction in a 3-way factional battle. Risking it all  they made a strategic choice that turned the tide of battle and won the day.

Watch the video to get a first-hand look at how choices matter in this Crowfall War Story! 

The embargo system has always been a challenging component of the Crowfall® experience. Many of the proposed campaign rule sets hinge on its use to restrict the items that are brought into a new campaign, and likewise what spoils of war are taken out when the world succumbs to the Hunger. Choices have consequences, especially in worlds with limited imports and exports. Learn more about the upcoming changes to embargo and how to maximize your options.

Crowfall offers players the chance to rise as Eternal Heroes, fighting in dying worlds against time, enemies, and the destruction of the Hunger on behalf of their gods. Learn more of what makes our storytelling unique

Are you ready to face the War Tribes?

Hello Crows!

War Tribes are here! As Eternal Heroes battle to take the throne for the gods, War Tribes are rising as a dangerous new enemy. War Tribes add a layer of challenge and complication to the Dying Worlds as they work against the Crows to wrest control of the world away from the gods and stave off their inevitable destruction. War Tribes can be found throughout the lands, burrowing into the decaying remains of the civilizations once native to these worlds. Prepare for battle, as encounters with these wasteland warriors will prove to be dangerous -- but rewarding. Are you ready to face the War Tribes? 

Meanwhile, back in the Crowfall development studio… 

Life as a god can be wretched. Trial of Kane introduces Kane, The Wretched God. This trial features the addition of the new Crafting Score to the leaderboard. Now, crafters get rewarded! The score is based on the total sacrifice value of all crafted items - based on value when crafted (not purchased or not sacrificed). The trial of the wretched god ends on April 9th!

God’s Reach is a new world type within the “reach of the gods” and therefore protected from the decaying effect of The Hunger. In case you missed it, Creative Director, J. Todd Coleman and Art Director, Melissa Preston, jumped on twitch to give an overview of “God’s Reach”. We hope you’ll join us in God’s Reach!

Winter is here in the Trial of Zaleena!

Posted by ArtCraft Entertainment, Inc. (Creator)

Hello Crows!

We continue this month with our ongoing series of competitive campaigns called Trials of the Gods. In the Trials, players must prove their worth as Eternal Crows. The Trial of Malekai was a great reminder that players are ultimately utilitarian when it comes to strategic choices, and a simple reward system (like “everyone on the winning faction gets the top reward”) leads to behavior that, while totally understandable, might not make for the most interesting gameplay.

For the Trials of Zaleena, we are trying reward scarcity, tying rewards to individual contribution rather than basing them simply on faction performance. That means we’ll be giving out the Gold to the top individuals in each faction (not just the winner) and we’ll adjust the number of participants based on faction ranking as of the end of the campaign. Everyone else, in every faction, who hits the leaderboards will get a Silver Sigil of Zaleena for participating and (most importantly!) helping us test the game. Both the gold and the silver badge offer the exact same in-game benefit, a +3% Bleed Damage-over-Time bonus, so both versions are highly valuable.

Meanwhile, back in the Crowfall development studio… 

Winter is here in the Trial of Zaleena, only top players in from each faction will be deemed worthy of the Gold Sigil of Zaleena. Jump in and prove you have what it takes to be victorious!

Don your very own Sigil of Malekai -- Crows who earned the reward will now find it available in to claim via the Purchases button in the Lobby! Learn more.

If you missed March’s ACE Q&A livestream, we’ve got you covered! This week we revealed March rewards for TEST. As a show of gratitude for those who brave the TEST server to help us stomp out bugs and issues before they can make their way to our 24/7 LIVE servers, we’re offering the Life Stone tankard.

In case you missed it, watch the LIVE March Q&A with Creative Director, J. Todd Coleman and Lead Designer, Thomas Blair.

We’ve been blown away by the fast-growing legion of Crowfall streamers as more channels pop up every day. To celebrate and support these streaming superstars, we’re hosting Crowfall Streamer Week on the Official Crowfall Twitch.

Prove your worth in the Trial of Malekai!

Posted by ArtCraft Entertainment, Inc. (Creator)

Hello Crows!

As we continue on the road to Alpha, we announced this week that we are delaying the launch of the 1st Sanctioned Campaign in favor of realizing additional gains in performance. This path was suggested by our players and we took their advice. We share the goal of ensuring that when we hit the Alpha milestone we also hit the quality bar to support massive Throne War battles. With that in mind, we wanted to offer a series of fun and competitive campaigns that give players a reason to continue to login and compete on our LIVE playtest servers. To that end, we introduced, the Trials of the Gods

The Trials of the Gods is a series of competitive campaigns that pits player faction against faction in contentious Campaign battles, they can win. In the Trials, players must prove their worth as Eternal Crows. Winning and losing factions will be rewarded. Rewards will be new items delivered via a unique new system - Accessories. Accessories are the beginning of the Crowfall ‘skins’ system. The system offers players 3 locations on which to attach items; Badge, Belt and Back. 

The first Trial campaign will be helmed by the God, Malekai, Lord of Shadows. This Trial begins Tuesday February 12, 2019, at 10pmCST/ 11pmCET and finishes February 26, 2019, at 10pmCST/ 11pmCET. Winning factions receive the Gold Malekai Sigil badge emblazoned with Malekai's Spider icon. When equipped, the sigil endows the wearer with a 2% Critical Hit Chance and a 2% Critical Health Chance stat bonus. The sigil cannot be traded, looted and will not decay. Losing factions receive the Silver version of the Malekai sigil - which includes the same bonuses. It is time to prove you have what it takes to be an Eternal Crow - are you ready? 

Meanwhile, back in the Crowfall development studio… 

Get the first-ever Badge Accessories! Accessories are the newest category of equippable items in Crowfall. These items appear on your character and can offer minor boosts to your character’s stats. Join and play in our new series of campaigns, The Trials of the Gods, to earn the first-ever new sigils accessory rewards - each themed to the god hosting the campaign.

Play on TEST to earn unique rewards in February! During February, players who playtest 4-hours or more will receive a new, accessory - the Crowfall Tankard Mug featuring the Crowfall Crow Logo. We appreciate your support in helping to make Crowfall great! (Plus, those who tested 5.8 beginning December 18 through January will receive a Tankard reward, too!)

#ICYMI The new Capture Point Bonus was added in December and enhanced in January. The bonus mechanic adds a pool of Victory points to each Capture Point that continues to grow the longer a Capture point is held, giving players a chance to come from behind and "win" even late in the Campaign. The Capture Bonus gives teams a way to dramatically catch-up or flip the board, ensuring an intense and competitive Throne War battle...you can win!
