461. Copper in YO will always be a problem. In the MMO it can be used for vost. steel and as mentioned coins in the future. But that's endgame while copper is something that you find and mine early game. In YO it's even unassessable, because this endgame isn't reached. Will you consider making some changes for the YO version at least like the ability to make low quality nails and bands (for containers early on) from copper, or both games will always stay with the same vanalla settings?
  • Answer: We should consider some changes about copper both for MMO and YO. But that is definitely not our priority at the moment.
462. The teleporting is badly affecting the gameplay in two ways:
1) The mentioned trading - you can just go to the traders post, buy stuff and teleport home instead of carrying it on the dangerous map. This might be solved by changing the teleport that you take only what's on you (weapons, armors), but everything in the inventory like food, horse and trading goods drop in a bag on the ground. That shouldn't be so hard to implement, but the other point is more complex.
2) It happened more then once - players teleport back to defend their lands. They are out there raiding, but as soon as someone closes on their own claim they can just teleport servers away and defend. Do you see that as bad use of the mechanic also and will adding something like the resurrection sickness debuff help in this case?
  • Answer: Good ideas, though quite complex to implement in the given amount of time. As I've mentioned before, we'll do something with homecoming, although we don't have any specifics plans yet.
463. Can you clarify on the instanced battles system? We know about the field battles in order to damage the monument, but in the past it was explained that the siege itself will happen on the MMO map. Lately it was said that this will be part of the instanced battle system. If that's really the case how are you going to set the players limits? Field battle with even numbers (like 100 vs 100) is fair and interesting. But even siege sounds like bad idea - the defenders have lots of advantages anyway, even numbers sound like almost unwinnable if the defenses are prepared good. Not to mention that if it came to a siege the defenders already lost lots of field battles, will be strange if they have even numbers after that also.
  • Answer: Well, obviously IF we will have sieges in an instanced environment, we will allow x2-x4 numbers advantage for attackers. As about if sieges will be on the main MMO map or in the instanced server - as I've mentioned it always - it all depends on the performance of our servers. We don't want lagging sieges - nobody likes them.

Here is the beauty in whole interactive FAQ thing, really neato stuff

464: Playing on my last question (460) and on Sharanas question (462). If the issues with getting stuck in mines were solved (overburdened/unable to drop soil/ore and cannot escape), and once the handling on transportation vehicles are polished up (wheelbarrow/cart/etc) and buffed them somewhat to carry ores/dirt/logs/possibly virtualized furniture and someday when the horse drawn carts are implemented do you think some of the points you brought up regarding it being tedious or unfun would be remedied?
  • Answer: TBH I don't think that mentioned problems are the main reason for a tedious/unfun gameplay. Some players force themselves to grind, because they set ambitious goals for themselves. Since those goals are significant, of course, the cannot be achieved in 5 minutes. So players willingly put themselves into a grind and boredom. I don't think we can change that situation. The only way to change it would be to turn our game into an instant cookie cutter type of game, that you play for a couple of hours - receive a lot of fun and quickly discard in the end. That is obviously not our way.
Spoiler


Sorry for the excessively long post, such a simple issue has a lot of complex implications.
There's merit to both keeping the teleport and removing it, it's hard to say which is the better choice.

another feudal democracy might be good but not before all the vehicles are at a good point of polish and implementation.
I just wanted to know what you fellows thought about the homecoming skill. In the end all that matters is that the issue is simply brought up and your team makes whatever decisions most closely follows their vision.

465: Any plans to change pikes to allow for some movement while using them? The current system does add excessive vulnerability to anything but a horse. A pikeman has to ready their weapon very early to prepare for a horse charge, giving easy shots to ranged opponents. I am curious if, in-game, there has ever been a successful fight with X pikemen vs X lancers. For a class dedicated entirely to stopping cavalry, their success rate seems extremely low. On the other hand, cavalry are able to attack infantry, archers, and other cavalry successfully.
  • Answer: We want to see how pike infantry will perform in MMO large scale battles/in instanced battles.
466: I have seen mention of formation reworks around the forums. Will 'hold ground' be a viable solution to a cavalry charge? As in, would a 5-man shieldwall using hold ground be able to stop a charging horse or not be knocked down?
  • Answer: Yes, we plan to rework it this way.
467: Currently, a dismounted horseman is vulnerable for maybe three seconds before being able to remount, even in the middle of an enemy infantry formation. In addition, there is no delay between pressing E to mount and being able to gallop away. As soon as you hit the button to mount your horse and during the "pull up" animation, your horse is in motion. Are there plans to increase the vulnerability of a dismounted horseman? IE: unmounted horses that are hit run away, are stealable, can be held in place?
  • Answer: Infantry that is blocking horse way should be able to stop it.
468: At this point in time, trebuchets take up a single tile of space despite being large enough actually occupy a roughly 3x3 square. Are there any plans to increase the foundation size of trebuchets?
  • Answer: We don't want to require extensive terraforming activities to place one trebuchet, that is why it requires only 1 tile.

Hi!
469. I think that respawn should be disabled during the JH. It's unfair that people can die and respawn several times to protect their bases.
JH should be a real life simulator where you are absolutely mortal and you must care about your life, like in a similar situation in real life. Debuff after respawn is not enought, you can shoot a bow from your wall, die, respawn and shoot again. Judgment hour is a real war. If you die, you should be inactive till the end of JH. Attackers will better consider the plan of attack, defenders will think 10 times before engage in melee fight, peaceful players will suspend hunting and scouting and hide behind their walls - like in real life. What you think about that?
  • Answer: JH in MMO is a temporary solution until we have a proper battle and siege systems enabled. In battle there will be only one "life" - you will be kicked out of the instance once you die. In a siege system, we might implement some kind of a longer debuff, or a debuff with an increasing intensity.
470.
I have a few questions about craft system:
for example a training sword, for craft you need a linen rope that is a middle-tier component. (it takes a lot of time and many professions to create it). why not simplify the craft of elementary things? Two people will not be able to craft these wooden weapons, and they will not be able to increase the skill of swords to use them, it's logical to use a low-tier component (Wild plant fiber), thereby allowing 2-3 friends to play and develop fully. There are many such examples where a high-tier ingredient is required for a simple thing, you can also make a started craft more accessible, so that 2 people without a re-training could craft simple things It's very strange when we were craft an iron axe, but we could not use it without having a wooden axe, which requires much more time, studied professions and ingredients.
  • Answer: Since practice weapons do not inflict much damage, though provide a skill raise of an according weapon mastery we decided to make them a bit expensive, so training by itself will be a bit more expensive and not that easily acquirable. But we might discuss it internally and revise it.

471. In instanced battlefields, you said you'd like to limit the gap between the armies with a ratio of 1:3.
Will you let players to decide to let only one of their warriors enter this battlefield, trying to kill the 3 ennemy warrions ? or will you put a minimum limit ?
  • Answer: We will have some kind of a minimum limit of course. If some guild failed to supply at least 5-10 people to protect itself, it deserves to be zerged by a bigger amount of troops and lose some monument support/level/influence.

472: Currently, the lif wiki puts the guild claim sizes as the following:
T1: 30 tiles in diameter
T2: 50 tiles in diameter
T3: 100 tiles in diameter
T4: 150 tiles in diameter

However, later sections of the same page say the town claim, assumed to have the same rules as current guild claims, will have a diameter of 70 tiles with a T1 monument. I understand that realm claims are unrelated here, so which piece of information is correct. Will town claims have a consistent size of 70 tiles for the town or will it have the 30/50/100/150 sizing?
  • Answer: Town claims will never grow up and will stay the same as T1 monument radius. While country claim will grow with each monument level (T1 monument just don't have country claim yet).

473. I really do hope you plan on fixing the home aspect of the game. Being able to teleport home ruins many possible conflict/control points in the game.

Trade routes(also needs horse drawn carts) should be a point of protection for guild pvpers, which will also provide content for said pvpers. Being able to just teleport home after completeing a trade is lazy(dev side) and boring. Allies and trade partners need to or should need to protect trade routes and enemies should want to attack trade routes. This also helps develop a proper player run economy. This should be a must for the developers.

474. You mentioned if for both instanced and mmo map seiges? Is that an either or if? Or is ir a we may not be having seiges if? Or is it well we will do a JH seige mechanic on mmo? These are important clarifications and a source of concern as we go through beta stages with no seige mechanic except poorly timed JH's.

The IF you say is a bit of a pullback from the advertised seige mechanics you all laid out when promoting the game FYI.
  • Answer: We plan to have instanced battles. We're not sure about instanced or main map Sieges yet.

475) Are you planning on doing something about players who maximize their carrying capacity then jump on the back of a horse to move at full speed? This is no where near realistic, and abuses game mechanics around moving heavy loads. In my mind, moving resources like this should require the use of trader carts (or the upcoming horse drawn carts). Otherwise players moving resources and on horse back are able to easily get away from raiders. If an overloaded player jumps on the back of a horse the horse should also move slowly.
  • Answer: Once (hopefully "soon" (C)) we will implement trading carts, such way of transportation will not be as effective as a fully loaded trader cart. So far you can consider it as a feature.
476) While I understand the game mechanics around the need for 'pocket ponies', they should certainly weigh more then 100. A weight of 200 would seem more balanced.

477: With personal claims, can you place them inside neutral or enemy realm claims?
  • Answer: You can place them anywhere where you have right to claim. If for some reason enemy guild leader set a rule allowing you/your guild to claim land on his claim - yes, you will be able to do that.
478: Are there any restrictions other than question 477's answer for placing personal claims? Distance from other claims, clay pits, etc.
  • Answer: None so far.
479: Do personal, town, and realm claims each protect buildings from normal decay?
  • Answer: Yes, they do.
480: Is it possible to have a personal claim inside a guild claim for a guildmember with sufficient permissions?
  • Answer: Yes, see answer 477 about claiming right.
481: Will the current state of the game in the MMO beta be implemented in LiF:YO and if so, when?
  • Answer: We are working on it right now. It will be implemented - hopefully - this or next week.
482: Do we have an ETA on climbing mode?
  • Answer: Probably after start of Open Beta Tests.
483: Building off of question 473, what is the maximum size of a town claim? 70 tiles diameter? 100 tiles diameter? The wiki says 70, but seems unreliable.
  • Answer: We're still tweaking it.
Thank you for the effort needed to answer this constant barrage of questions! :beer:

484.any idea for hosting a lance-jousting,a massive arena that can hold hundreds of audience,sign up for entertainment,rules by :
hitten on head - 10 scores
hitten on chest - 3 scores
hitten on legs - 3scores
hitten on feets and hands -4 scores
hitten on horse - 1scores
,once the player were Unconscious or his horse were dead so he will lose the match,the winner will be promoted and wait for the next coming match。
inspire by the film《A Knight's Tale》
  • Answer: Sounds like a good idea. But that is definitely not our priority at the moment.

485: The previous patch notes mentioned "terrain flattening fixes". Could you expand upon that?
  • Answer: There is some issue when a certain terraforming actions would break "flattened" flag on a neighboring cell resulting in a wide array of negative side effects. We're fixing it in the next LiF:YO patch.
486: Can we expect more detailed patch notes for MMO patches and features or is the plan to continue with the current, broader style?

IE: "knight sword weapon damage has been reduced by 5%, Falchion by 10%" as opposed to "Tweaked weapon damages"
  • Answer: Currently in the closed beta tests stage, we do a LOT of different changes and tweaks, constantly shaping our game. Thus it is very hard to keep the track on all the changes that are made, reverted, made again during the development process between patches. That is why our patch notes are vague sometimes. But once we progress closer to the open beta tests or release, we expect that there will be less of such significant changes and we will be able to create more detailed patch notes.

487. what the actual effects of luck are has never been confirmed, relating to specific skills. What can a player specifically expect with a luck of 5 vs a luck of 0? Will luck-related events ever happen while not wearing any luck gear or having skill-related luck boosts?
  • Answer: There are no special fancy events or messages related to the luck. But luck is included in almost every formula in our game - both crafting and combat ones. If you have 0 luck, then you will not see any difference. But with a maxed out jewelry you might actually notice it during long term playing
488. Is the chance to wound different for each weapon and/or body part? Does the same apply for bone-break effects?
  • Answer: Not sure what exactly you're asking about. The chance to apply a wound depends on the weapon and the body part you have hit with. If your weapon has produced a wound/fracture it will apply it on any body part you currently hit with that weapon.
489. Will the game ever include actual values for weapons and such, therefore removing the need for testing to learn these things? IE: TOWER SHIELD
Passive Block at 1q: 30%
Passive Block at 100q: 60%

The point these previous questions are trying to get across is that there are game mechanics in the game that, to find out, players need to test instead of being able to find these resources from the LiF team. For example, I am aware that striking an enemy in the thigh does 91.5% of the damage that would have happened if you struck them in the torso. I am just wondering if there will be more transparency with regards to game mechanics and the values for items.

I understand the discovery process is important, but having concrete evidence of what a scimitar does vs a falchion vs a light sabre is appealing.
  • Answer: Yes, we're working on the tooltips along with an interface rehaul.

490. Are the first-person and third-person views in archery working as intended? Is the aiming in third-person going to be reworked?

Thanks!
  • Answer: Archery in third-person is 'broken' as intended. You have to be focused in first person view while shooting thus be less awarded about your surroundings.

491. Why not letting everyone to open building foundations to put in components like logs, stone, etc.. ? it would be better for the builder himself, because adding 200 logs by 2 or 3 logs, it's long and tedious :beer: (architecture could be a real hell for the builder)
  • Answer: We still have plans to implement architect's ability to admission the construction works, that would allow anyone to build materials into the foundation, while Architect is channeling this ability. Had to postpone it since there are more important things in the development.

493. Hats have something like 7 or 8 different IDs (gottlung_hat_1, gottlung_hat_2 ...) and it could refer to worldwide events (like Xmas and the red hats, or even easter eggs... hmmmm :D ;) ;) :D )
but why not provide all the hats colorswaps, even for clothes and the weaver could craft them all when he wants ?
  • Answer: Color swapping is another type of customization. Those hats in most cases have different geometry.

467: Are there plans to increase the vulnerability of a dismounted horseman? IE: unmounted horses that are hit run away, are stealable, can be held in place?
  • Answer: Infantry that is blocking horse way should be able to stop it.


495. Since this answer was fairly vague, I would like to bring it up again.

If you insist on this super unrealistic feature where a rider can get off and on his horse in moments and ride off instantly - I'm assuming we will be able to bypass the 3 minute horse claim timers during instanced battles, sieges and during the daily "judgement hour" period where people can steal from claims?
  • Answer: Well, we'd better implement horses run away after the damage was inflicted while they are standing without a rider. We actually have some AI foundation for such behavior. As a temporary solution personal timer removal during PvP events (JH, battle, siege) will do. But truth to be told, we don't want to turn our game into GTA, where pikeman will have to ride the horse away in order to prevent a rider from mounting back on the horse.

497. What are the plans for 30, 60, and 90 day premium account status packs? Will having premium status give something like a bonus luck modifier, a flat bonus of god's favor per month, or even a skill gain boost?
  • Answer: We will describe it once those packs will be ready closer to the Wave#2 (OBT)
498. Are there any plans for more outfits; farming, mining, procuration, forestry, herbalism, etc. and building more on this question, could there potentially be outfits or other clothing that increase the speed of basic labor actions like harvesting crops, mining, or even sawing logs.
  • Answer: Yes, but no precise dates can be provided yet :(

499: are there any plans to host NA servers before wave 2 starts, as a way to stress test and differentiate between the regions? and building on that question, in regard to character tickets, will they be account bound or locked to whatever region you choose? my primary concern is that NA servers won't launch till after wave 2 because of unforeseen technical and logistic reasons. Seeing as character tickets are limited, it’s important for guilds to know now how they should build their alliances and guilds. It’s a waste of time for players to make alliances with EU guilds when they won’t be playing on NA servers, and vice versa. Furthermore, you can imagine the hundreds of emails you guys will get when players sign up for EU servers only to find out that NA servers are opening soon and they depleted their ticket. Essentially I’m wondering if NA servers will get some attention before wave 2 to avoid mass confusion.
  • Answer: Yes, we definitely have plans to host NA and maybe even CIS and Asia servers right before the start of the wave#2 to test everything out. Tickets should be account bound and should be redeemable in any region. But we might review all those plans once we get closer to the Wave#2 (OBT). I want to add, that your concerns are important and completely just, we will do our best to avoid such inconvenience.

500. Hey guys, I'm wondering if you're able to expand at all on one of the things published in an interview yesterday.

"We also plan to introduce different worlds with different rulesets (Vanilla, Roleplay, Fast progression with a monthly wipe, etc.)"

I know these are probably just plans for the future and may not be fully fleshed out yet, I'm just curious, in an ideal world, when would you implement these server divisions? For Wave 2 launch? Sometime after?

Of course there are lots of questions around what these rulesets would actually entail - I'd be interested to hear anything additional you're willing or able to share.

Thanks as always!
  • Answer: You are correct, there is nothing fleshed out yet. And there are chances that we might have to scrap that idea to avoid population spreading around multiple MMO worlds. Those is rough idea that I have in mind for future experiments if we believe that we can and have to perform such experiments.

501. If CIS server will be a reality then will that happen with the start of OBT stage? If there will be such server it seems not only americans will be faced with the choice to stay EU or goon their own server.
  • Answer: As answered in 499, we have plans to host those servers right before wave #2 for testing.

502.Bobik i dont think NA server is a good idea, because Regionable server will definitely divided the population of the players into different parts(especially in the currently state), this will reduce the competition between each clan, and less interesting about diplomacy,trading,and war.one global server will keep the game alive and full of challenge and historic,believe me bobik.Those who desire it are selfish and never consider the game`s future generally :(
The MMO need something massive , mix with different culture players .if a player were truly love this game, the ping issue wont be their problem(we had played in 200+ pings as usual).

503. In the CBT, we saw 2 kinds of tabard : a very dirty one, washed, colorless... and one very beautiful, nice colours... their quality were between 12 and 17 (nothing crazy)
was it a bug, or, is there a secret in the tabards graphic quality ? :D :angel:
  • Answer: It is a "primitive" tabard that you get when running without an armor. A better tabard appears once you actually have an armor underneath it.

504. Trading post incoming in the CBT3, how the money will be implemented ? :) which skill or how a kingdom will be able to mint it ?
  • Answer: Yes, we plan to patch trading posts. But kingdoms will not be able to mint the currency yet - we plan to release it later during OBT (Wave#2). So far players will have to sell some stuff to gain coins.

505. Current town claim size seems to be a 20-tile radius, 40-tile diameter in this iteration, not the 35-tile radius 70 tile diameter that was mentioned in Question 472. Is this intentional and will it be the new town claim size going forward? If not, what size town claim can we expect?
  • Answer: So far we're looking at current towns to make a final decision about claim sizes. Cannot tell anything more right now.
506. Is there an ETA on climbing mode? This feature seems to be one that would have a very dramatic impact on how the game is played.
  • Answer: Not too soon. It is VERY complex and right now we are concentrating on horse pulled carts.
507. Are there any plans to make areas of the map such as the desert or arctic more appealing for the playerbase? Beyond regional resources, I mean.
  • Answer: Nope. We need harsh regions too ;)
508. Will horsedrawn carts be able to move over moveable objects such as platforms? At the moment, the animal AI avoids such things.

For example, if there is a moat will the player need to terraform the moat to allow for the horsecart to cross or can they simply use a moveable platform?
  • Answer: No, nothing like that is planned.
509. Personal claims have been rumoured to cost premium currency in order to maintain. Is there any foundation to these rumours? What about for town claims?
  • Answer: Yes, it is probable. Some minimum size of personal claim can be maintained by in-game currency, but if you want more - you will have to use premium one. And no, we will not require premium currency for any sizes of guild claims support.
510. Are there any plans for using the premium account status to increase skillgain?
  • Answer: We have not decided yet.

511: What are the plans about regional leathers? A tier 3 set requires like 7 regional leathers and the the procurement of such is much harder. With the current 1% if we say that one would need 100 actions on average then there is huge difference between 100 mining actions (regional iron), harvesting 100 flax tiles (regional cloth) and skinning 100 animals.
The flax harvest process is pretty passive, you plant a huge field and you are guaranteed to have few regional tiles. Mining actions are fast, so you usually get regional iron easily. But the leathers ... even with not populated server (400 players on the MMO in the latests testruns) it's WAY more time consuming to find, kill and skin 100 animals, so the process of gathering regional leathers is way more complicated then the other regional materials and the tier 3 sets require lots of regional leathers.
How do you plan to address that difference? By increasing the chance of leather drop significantly or by allowing collection of regional leathers from killing domestic animals?
  • Answer: We had a brief discussion about that in our office. We've decided to make a full discussion about that later next week. I agree that we either should drop more regional leather from animals or let it drop from domestic animals.
512: Can we expect the new castle walls later this testrun or the next one?
  • Answer: Next one probably.
513: With the initial introduction of traders posts will the players be able to use them for player-player trading (posting offers that everyone can see) or it will only be a place to sell good to the system and use the coins in direct barters with other players?
  • Answer: The primary intention of having trade posts is to enable a global player to player trade. Selling stuff to server for money is just a secondary function.
514: Can we expect instanced battles next testrun? If it's indeed going to be the last testrun is the entire system going to function - not only instanced battles, but sieges, daily vulnerability windows for guild in war to raid their realm claims etc? I hope you don't plan to skip the testing of all this and just release it in wave 2 when there will be no more wipes. After all there wasn't a feature till now that wasn't accompanied by serious problems or exploits which is normal and that's what CBT is for.
  • Answer: Yes, I agree with you and yes, we plan it.
515: Are the JHes in CBT#3 be 1h long again?
  • Answer: We will see, maybe 2 hours, but not any longer.
516: When are you going to fix the terraforming with paving that allows steep terraforming (the only way atm to get the old clay terraforming) - during CBT or when the OBT starts?
  • Answer: Before OBT.

517. As far as I remember, monuments needed minimum number of players in the guild to be able for the upgrade... something like 20 members minimum for monument rank 2, etc... (avoiding 10 people guild with tier 4 monument)

is that true ? is that still there ?
  • Answer: Nope, not really. At least should not be. 10 people technically can upgrade and support tier 4 monument if they're wealthy or backed up by some other sources.
518. What was the goal to "fix" this ?
You can no longer flatten terrain cells that are close to terrain cells with a different altitude (excluding sloped flattening situations)

It seems to make angry a lot of my builders, but I'm not really sure why x)
  • Answer: The goal was to implement proper cells blocking and flattening. The idea of flattening is that ALL parts of a certain cell should be at the same altitude. The idea of the blocked cell is that it can NEVER be altered by some nearby terraforming/building actions because it is blocked. Due to the bug, you could place wall/building on a perfectly flat cell and then "break" it by flattening nearby cell that got lower altitude. It resulted in some parts of buildings and walls to hang in the air and with some unexpected terrain deformations. But on the other hand, it allowed placing buildings close to each other no matter what was the difference of altitudes. Now you can place buildings next to each other, only if they're at the same altitude, or you have step one cell away to place buildings on different altitude. That made some castle templates impossible and lowered variety or possible castle patterns, unfortunately. It is our mistake that we had no time to fix it in time and people got used to this bug :(

  • Answer: Before OBT.


519: Can you expand on what the problem is here and how the team is planning on fixing it?
  • Answer: Such height difference is not planned and should not be in the game. We had no time to discuss it internally how exactly are we going to fix it.
520: As of now, impact damage doesn't seem to be implemented despite the patch notes. Will impact damage mean that a player hit by a horse is no longer launched backwards, but simply damaged or knocked down? If so, which?
  • Answer: No, the player will still be knocked back and damaged, but the type of damage will not be "unknown", but it will be an "impact", thus it will be absorbed by armors (especially padded). And yes, it seems that this change does not apply properly, we plan to patch it with the next major content update (hopefully during this CBT run).
