  1. The Paladins arrive October 25th! Crusaders of Light's next huge update, Arrival of the Paladins, includes the long-anticipated arrival of the Paladin, a brand new class with the ability to tank or deal damage. But the fun doesn't stop there! Also included is the brand new Star Circle system, giving you a whole new way to use experience to grow your Character's power. We've also got tons of new content, with a revamped quest system that makes exploring the world of Milura more rewarding, and the final 2 Bosses of Heroic: Burning Skyblaze Village. If that wasn’t enough there’s a ton of other features, including new levels to upgrade Legendary gear, and the return of the Champion’s Trials. Get ready Crusaders, October 25th and Arrival of the Paladins is almost here!
  2. This is absolutely the number one issue in our priority list. We'll keep you updated later today as we have more news on specifics, but we've had people working around the clock on this one. We certainly understand the frustration; making sure we fix things right takes time however.
  3. With Team Ascension's win in the $400K USD Fastest Dungeon Raid Competition, we wanted to learn a little bit more about how they did it. Fortunately Helpmeplox and Ramono were gracious enough to join us for an interview on how it all came together! Netease: How did you hear about Crusaders of Light, what got you interested in the game? Helpmeplox: A friend of mine that I play a lot of other games with told me that CoL was similar to WoW in many regards. I had played WoW for years so naturally I figured I would give CoL a try. The thing I found most interesting about the game was how you can take a MMORPG, which usually isn’t casual, and bring it to a mobile device (which most of the time tends to be casual)... and have it work well. Ramono: I was a player on Surgewind Wilds. I heard about Crusaders of Light from my friends, they were having fun and I was getting bored so I downloaded the game on google play Netease: How did Team Ascension form? Ramono: Ascension is the guild we’re in, and Essantra is our guild leader. Ascension was originally formed in the Au server Surgewind. However, for the contest, it’s not just us… Ascension didn't win alone. There's a lot of good players that helped with the winning run. Helpmeplox: Our team wanted our group to be based mostly on merit. As the competition grew more fierce we realized that if we wanted to win, we would need the help of top players from other guilds and so we talked with those guild leaders and they compiled a list of people they thought would be up to the challenge. After a few days of just running dps checks on both heroic dummy and aoe, and weighing what would be more important, we decided who would be in the 40man run. We also had about 5-10 subs that could fill in immediately if a core member had to drop for any reason. Netease: How did the team prepare for your winning run, and what was the process for forming your winning strategy? Ramono: Me, babyjesus and Skyren asked people to check their dps with a lvl. 48 dummy. We figured that whoever was able to hit 10kdps or higher had a high chance to join our speedrun. Babyjesus was our main organizer he was like the ambassador for us, and Halie was the main strategist with other people like Baluga, Aeon and Helpmeplox. Helpmeplox: To prepare we had almost all our members running tests of their own trying to max their damage numbers by changing sets around, as well as people who were theorycrafting the best ways to move around the dungeon. For example we used a lot of predetermined grouping for adds and leader swapping. Those each required us to be in a cleared version of the raid and running around the obstacles to determine how to shave off seconds. A few of our members even drew diagrams for easy viewing for other team members that couldn’t be in those test runs, so that even if we subbed they could be current with what we were trying to do. Netease: Can you describe your overall strategy/approach, and how it worked? Helpmeplox: So the core of our strategy was to max our aoe dps as much as possible and to be able to quickly burst down the packs of mobs in the least amount of time possible. To do this we utilized the leader swapping function with scout rolls, as well as having set groups jump to the next mob pack while some of our more single target oriented dps finished off the remaining mobs health. Ramono: Carena, one of the best tanks on our server, regrouped all adds besides the magma golem 1st boss while our tank (babyjesus) endured it with Oasis or Kaiziel healing him. We made sure to remove proc sets from skyblaze.... so it wouldn't inflict damage. Helpmeplox: For bosses, we had grouped all the first sets of mobs leading up to the first boss and stacked them where he would spawn in order to have all of our sets already down. When his health got around 30% I would start heading for the barrier and get there as it was going down. From there I would run to a middle point in the adds so they would stack around me and all the dps would port in and attack them. The moment I saw them port to me and start fighting, I would leave and go to the next set and group them in our predetermined spot and call for them to jump to me again. We did this for each set of mobs leading up to Gorghana. Our strat for Gorghana was to have our most defensive player tank the boss in the middle, to allow for warrior dps and sets to go off. At appropriate times our tank would run to the lava to pick up the boss when it teleported there. We had our ranged damage dealers stay in melee range for their sets and then run to the grate between the lava and the middle of the map so when the boss teleported they would be in range the entire time. Ramono: For the Gorghana fight to work all our main single target DPS needed to be near Gorghana, and five other rangers had to be by the grate. The jobs of the tamers were to avoid the pentagrams; while the tamers were dodging the pentagrams that left other people free to ignore the orbs! With those elements down we just kept on attacking till we killed it. Netease: What was your team class composition and how did you decide upon it? Ramono: Just get the best among the rest.... because this is a speedrun the thing that matters the most is DPS. We had some mages swap to verity, some Warriors swapped from fang to exec. We did a lot of path swapping, and by the way you need forest guide even if it's level 1 path because you just need that tempest debuff for adds. Helpmeplox: Our main goal was to get max aoe dps for the mobs. After all our tests we found Mystics and Warriors to be about equal (in our group at least), in terms of AOE, with Rangers falling behind by a decent amount depending on star cloak procs. Since that was the case we chose to run with as many Warriors and Mystics as we could, but still bringing in some Scouts and Tamers for their good single target DPS and buffs respectively. Netease: How many runs did you folks make? What run was the winning one? Ramono: I didn't count, but I think complaining and discussing takes more time than running. Helpmeplox: If I had to guess I’d say no more than 30-45 runs in total. Our winning run was in the last hour of the competition when the raid had already been cleared by people and closed for the other server which helped to reduce all our member lag a lot. Netease: Were you feeling confident in your time? Ramono: YEAAAAAAAAAAAAH! Helpmeplox: We’d heard that the the Immortals Team had run some crazy fast runs, but I’d say overall we were pretty confident in our time. Regardless of whether we were going to win or not, we all were proud that we could even challenge their time. Netease: Any advice for aspiring raiders out there? Helpmeplox: The best advice I can give for people wanting to raid is to make friends in game. Find people who are better than you and try to group with them as much as possible, because surrounding yourself with better players forces you to become better yourself. Learn to take criticism and not flip out. Many people don’t mean it to be an insult when they give advice, they just want to help you do better. Lastly, you don't need to be pay to win to be competitive. Yes people are going to spend money, and yes it helps, but we have a few members who have spent little to no money on the game and were in our winning 40 man team. Ramono: I am a free to play player. Part of the reason I played this game was for the competition and of course I wanted the money. Ten thousand dollars is a lot here in the Philippines! At first when I saw Team Immortals records I was demoralized, and didn't know what to do, but I realized that we're not the only guild here in Thundercall Forest. What if we collaborate and put our best dps together? So we did it and did our best! The only advice I have for aspiring raiders is to be patient; if RNG punches you in the guts... try again. Don't lose hope and never give up!!
  4. Maybe his mic is muted...
  5. With the $400K USD Fastest Dungeon Raid Competition heating up, we sat down with Immortals Leader Br0b to find out a little more about him and his guild. How did you come up with your team name (The Immortals)? I came up this name because my friends and I were trying to think of a cool name that would make us sound "unbeatable" and instead of something cheesy like that we chose "Immortals" instead. Still kinda cheesy but it stuck ^^ How did your team get together and who is it composed of (who is on your team, where are they from/located, etc?) Our guild started just with friends, and then we started recruiting the best people on our server. The team was made out of the best of the best of our guild. I am proud to say we have members from all over the United States and Canada and I have gotten to know every member of our team and they make up one of the best communities in any game I have ever played. What do you attribute your success in the competition to so far? The success is mainly contributed to the dedicated members of Immortals. We all practice and try to find the best strategies for the fastest run. We are saving some our best tactics until the end so even though our time looks fast now, we can do even faster Do you have any advice for anyone just getting into raiding? Find a great guild who will help you. I was more of a PVP type of player before this game, but with such a great community in our guild, I love finding new tactics in raids and getting loot with my fellow guildies. What do you and your team members like the most about Crusaders of Light? We love the community and team raids. The community of this game, like I said before, is the best of any game I have played before. We also like the challenges of each raid. Getting first blood of Arunas was amazing, because at the time, there was no guides for it, and we all worked together to find out how to defeat the boss. What are you going to do with the prize money if you end up being the winner of the $400K Fastest Dungeon Raid Competition? Gorghana mounts for everyone! Just kidding. I am not really sure yet personally, I know some people are students so they probably will pay some college loans off. Some people are older and have jobs already but have talked about a much needed vacation. Whatever its used for, it will for sure be amazing to win. If someone wants to find out more about you, where should they look? My youtube is https://www.youtube.com/c/WeBbyBrOb Check it out for some guides and I will be sure to upload some more videos soon! My twitch is https://www.twitch.tv/theonebrob I am trying to stream more, its fun to answer questions and do dungeons with viewers. ^^ Thanks for having me do this interview and shoutout to TSM, Learning, Molls, SMS and Anvil for being the best admins any guild leader could ask for. Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions!
  6. Hey, Challenging us to lock threads is never productive, if you have questions or feel a mistake was made send it to Panda or myself privately. Similarly suggesting you would make an alt account after getting banned isn't going to make things better. As a result this thread will be locked. Obviously patch notes should be as complete as possible; my personal rule for patch notes is if it effects players it should be in the notes. That being said we're still pretty new at Crusaders of Light so we're still developing our processes in this area, and from time to time mistakes will happen regardless. And I don't play a mystic.
  7. We'd love it if you video creators out there would share your own tips, tricks, and recommendations in this thread!
  8. Hey Folks, We’ve seen a ton of Crusaders of Light videos out there, had the opportunity to jump into a few player Livestreams, and have had an absolute blast seeing what you all are doing in Crusaders of Light! A couple people have written in asking questions on how to get started making their own videos and livestreams, so we thought we’d write up a few tips and tricks to help you out. Capturing Video There are many options for how to capture video, depending on what devices and resources you have available. The simplest means of capturing video from a phone or tablet is to use screen mirroring and capture that footage on a computer. There are tons of apps and services that can help with this. There are too many to go through as each one is better or worse depending on the resources at your disposal, so do a few google searches and you’re sure to find a solution that works for you. If you’ve installed Crusaders of Light from Facebook Gameroom on a PC it gets even easier; Simply capture footage on your PC as you play! This is by far the least technically demanding and simplest way to get your game footage recorded, so try it out! Editing Video Now that you’ve got some game footage, you’re ready to assemble it into a video. While you can just put out a recording of you playing, the best idea is to edit out the less exciting bits. No one wants to watch you form a group for the dungeon, or run there, they want to see you beat it! Similarly, game footage without a voice over is ok, but much better is for you to add text or voice over the top of the video explaining what you are trying to show. A little bit of polish in this area makes a much better video Streams work better with you talking and appearing on the video as well, just like videos. There are lots of options for video editing software that makes this easy, again a google search is your best friend. Or ask your favorite Youtuber or Streamer what they use! Releasing your Video Now that you’ve got some game footage properly edited, and with a little bit of polish added, it’s time to put your video up on the web. Similarly if you’ve got your stream all set up and you’re ready to go, it’s time to start. What next? Well videos and streams are great, but if no one knows you’re doing it it’s going to be a lot less fun than if lots of people are commenting and giving you feedback. Make sure to share on social networks (including the Official Forums and Reddit), and feel free to tag us too. We love watching a good video or stream as much as you do! Hope that helps, and we can’t wait to see what you do!

  11. So adding more platforms is always a nifty idea, after all that way more people can play the game right? Here's a few of the reasons not to do this willy nilly however: Each platform supported/build adds more complexity to the QA process. Basically each one needs to be tested any time you do anything Each platform adds a burden to Customer Service. Each version will have unique issues that end up causing people to write in to CS. That means either longer wait times for tickets or hiring more CS folks. In this case it's not just another build (Linux), but also another platform. Steam integration is actually a fair chunk of work, and has its own issues that need to be planned around. So you can see it's a super complicated thing, which explains why this isn't in the cards right now. We could reconsider at a future point, but it's not likely at this time. Thanks, Ocho
