Scheduling Update

Hi everyone! Today we got word that Crowfall is currently looking at a mid-2017 date for ‘soft start’ versus our assumption of an early-2017 point in time. And this is a good thing! If ACE feels this thing needs to be in the oven for a few more months, we’re behind that 100%. Given this, and the need-to-be-in-alpha nature of Big World testing, we will be re-structuring our goals a bit and moving open recruitment out to 01JAN17. Our goal is to start bringing in new people right about the time...

R-170 Update

Howdy everyone! With the recent announcements from ACE regarding Crowfall's transition into a more persistent scenario, we're kind of in a holding pattern for R-170. Rumor has it we'll have an announcement from ACE this week with details on the "Big World" phase, and some idea of the scope of what will be available. Once we have that, I'll gin-up a post for all of the various media points with our designs on how we'll tackle it - which will dove-tail into our open recruitment initiative.

Site Updates

We will be doing critical maintenance on the systems that power the Vigil community to maintain and improve the security and stability of the service today, Oct. 21, 2016.

The site will be functioning normally for the vast majority of the maintenance. We apologize for the short notice, but due to the critical nature of this update...

Gate 2 (R-170)

Good morning everyone! As Raeshlavik mentioned, we have edged up to the second gate on our road to Crowfall's release. At this threshold (October 15th, R-170 from release), the general idea is to start waking up a bit. Perhaps not entirely alert, but we are at least considering making coffee and socializing with one another. Bad analogy aside: we are right on track. Our goal for October 15th was to pre-select and privately recruit 20 individuals, and then transition onward to open...

News for 14OCT16

It’s time once again for a Vigil News Update! The last two weeks have been a period of rest for Imperious and I while we do diligence on our day-to-day mundanities and bank up some energy for Vigil’s next gate of open recruiting – which is coming at the end of the month. As we've mentioned previously, our operational schedule is designed to work around our best-guess as to when Crowfall will offer certain functionality – and the big news this week was, of course, the “Big World” announcement...

News for 29SEP16

It's been a few weeks since the last update, but things have not been static for Vigil – we’ve merely been focused on the official Crowfall forums while we get our message out in front of people. To recap some of the things that have happened: We introduced the guild on the Crowfall forums , then we started introducing ourselves. So if you want to read a bit of Imperious’ or my thoughts on this whole guild thing and how it will work with Crowfall, check out the posts over yonder. If you feel...

An Introduction to Vigil

History: Crowfall is projected to offer gameplay scenarios that the traditional MMO does not offer, such as time-limited PvP campaigns, fealty trees, guild-level city building, and detailed empire-scale economies. Because of this, and after much thought, Imperious and myself (Vigil’s Core Leadership) have decided to ‘start fresh’ with a focus entirely upon Crowfall’s unique features versus trying to get our existing guild organizational structures and systems to fit it. For example, given...

News for 05SEP16

It’s Labor Day here in the States, which means it’s a three-day weekend and the biggest grillin’ day of the year! This week has been pretty quiet here at Vigil as Imperious and I worked on lots of little things, but mostly worked our day-jobs so we could have a 3-day pass. We’ve been kicking around the order of operations to get to the recruiting phase, discussed the various leadership roles and the qualities of the people who should fill them, and roughed out a timeline from now until...

News for 27AUG16

Imperious and I have been hard at work this week as we continue to move through our task lists for this venture. Imperious has penned the first versions of the Leadership document, our member Recognition Systems , the Order of Battle , and some Common Battle Drills for the group to exercise with. This is a literal shit-ton of documentation, but it behooves you to get familiar with it as this is the very core of our organization and how things work. Some of the more operational elements, such...

News for 21AUG16

The various bits and pieces of a fully functioning guild continue to be hammered into place both here and around the various external web sites and social media outlets. Here on the forums, the Operational Formation Document has been updated to include the actual org chart as well as @Imperious' first brush at responsibilities and task requirements for the S-1 through S-9 offices. And as illustrated above, @mentions are in and working now. When in a post dialog here,...
