    I'm all for finite ammo as long as a couple things are provided for:
     
    1) A separate inventory is provided for it from my main inventory so I don't run out of main space because I have to carry it.
     
    2) Crafters are able to add to/enhance existing ammo.  Poisons and ignition sources come to mind specifically for bow classes.  Maybe armor piercing or shrapnel for those using bullets.
     
    This will add a certain strategy to being a ranged class that is dependent on ammo.  How much can I carry?  What kinds should I carry to be most effective?
     
    In a game that will be slant towards knowledge (knowing your class, knowing your foes, strategizing, etc.) being power, I'm all for finite ammo.

    You are 100% correct.  Wolves will always need to replenish themselves.
     
    You know who controls EVE Online?  It's not the mighty fleets, it's the industrial juggernaut behind them.  The guys researching blueprints for max efficiency.  The guys creating 1000 missiles, projectile and hybrid ammo at a time.  The guys creating new ships to replace ones that are yet to be lost.  They keep that game moving.  If that all dried up, 0.0 space would be mighty empty.
     
    Me?  I'm just a Corgi.  Keeping the sheep on track and fending off the wolves occasionally.

    If you are put off to a game by reading its forums...that would probably be every MMO out there.
     
    Forums are full of trolls, boasters, whiners, complainers and generally people you would want to pat...on the head...with a hammer (and yes, I realize I'm on a forum right now writing a post).
     
    There is always going to be PvE/PvP hate.  Who are 'they'?  Those who are not us.
     
    Hardcore.  Casual.  Raider.  PvPer.  It doesn't matter who you are or what you enjoy, there will always be a group that will not like you.

    Ultimately, you have to do what pleases you.  If you're a casual and you can carve out a place for yourself in a PvP-Centric game, more power to you.  Do you, boo boo, do you.

    Waikikamukau got a reaction from Rhend in Is This Too Hardcore To Survive?   
    I agree with your statement on Aion.  The PvP Rifts weren't for PvP at all.  They were for ganking lowbies.  One player early on complained when they modified the system to provide some defense to the lowbies lamenting that his PC couldn't handle the open PvP (I think it was called the Abyss or something similar).  I dislike this particular subset and targeted him any chance I got.
     
    If you're a PvPer you're not necessarily a Griefer.
     
    If you're a PvPer you're not necessarily a Ganker.
     
    I don't particularly endorse either of those styles of PvPer but they are just as much a PvPer as those of us that prefer a challenge.  And if we all end up in the Dregs at launch, so be it.  I'm no white knight, but if I see a clear cut lopsided fight, I won't hesitate to assist the underdog.  Which is probably why I'll end up being aligned with Balance.

    The dev team doesn't have to justify anything to you.  You chose to support the game and their vision.  You don't have any rights whatsoever to dictate or demand to know how the monies are being distributed.  You purchased whatever you purchased (the promised rewards) and I'm pretty sure nowhere in there was a 'we'll be completely transparent with you on how each dollar is spent' clause. 
     
    They are spending at their discretion and moving forward their vision.  You are merely along for the ride.  If you don't like it, you can always withdraw your funding.

    Waikikamukau got a reaction from Buckly in Should Kickstarter Campaigns Be Over-Funded?   
    They are finishing the core of the game.  Caravans are part of the game.  Rulesets are part of the game.  Physics are part of the game.  Animations are part of the game.  Archetypes are part of the game.  EVERYTHING they are working on is PART OF THE GAME.  They're not putting in the network optimizations, server clustering or any of the backend necessities that will be required to make the game run.  Back it because you support the vision as a whole, not because you like one particular ruleset that may not be in at launch.  It WILL be a part of the game and if you're like me and picked a donation level that gives you VIP membership for years they have plenty of time.
     
    Food for thought: EVE Online didn't have their sovereignty system in upon release.  That came later.  EVE Online continues to grow and evolve because they have a dedicated community.  They didn't have the luxury of MMOs being as popular in 2003 as they are now.  There was no Kickstarter.  Heimar and the rest sold a board game they created called Danger Game in Iceland to get the capital to start the project.  The customers provided continued funding to flesh out their vision.  That's exactly what we are doing for Crowfall except that they get a larger portion upfront.
     
    If your guildmates aren't willing to back it because they want instant gratification on release instead of being a part of something for the long haul that has serious promise to change the MMO landscape...well, it's their loss.  The Kickstarter numbers continue to rise, so others will step up and keep this progressing.

    Sapphire early bird because the Amber early bird sold out after I told a friend who's been obsessing over a SB 2.0 for years to get on it.
