  1. I came back for 5.8. Tried it out when they where doing tests over a year ago and thought it was a mess. I think the game is coming alone well but I have my concerns as well though mine are probably different than the OPs. If the game is planing to survive on old SB players, I shouldn't have even bothered with it and put my money on something that might be around for a few years. I think most people would like the game to have a long life with lots of players and that means catering some to more casual players as in giving them stuff to do that isn't just getting ganked. As the OP said there are some other games coming out 2019/2020 that are going to be tough competition for PvP players. I've never been much of a PvPer so i cant really comment much but to say my experience so far is getting 2 shot by an assassin and 3 shot buy a gun toting hamster losing everything I gathered the previous 3 hours. Which to be honest did piss me off but its not like i can do anything with the stuff anyway as crafting has to be learned with the passive points or what ever its called the idea of which i like but if the system is currently set to super speed like i thought i had heard, it is going to be long boring slog at launch. Why even play the game for the first few weeks, just log in now and then to spend points until you can actually do anything worth your time. I don't know, i see possibilities for good things, like the fluctuation of faction boarders and that the world will end after a few months these are things that can be great and really let this game stand out. But I can also see it going in a way were it ends up like so many other mmos. I think they really want to get the game out this year because of the whole GoT craze they've tried to associate with so much and as the last season coming out this year its got to come out now. ps. Throne War sounds dumb
  2. Winter is coming means the good times are about to end. Its gona get hard. In that universe winter can last for years , even whole generations of people can be born, live and die in one winter. It is the inevitable. Winter is coming for all of us.
  3. Here is a video of Tom Woods lecture presented at the Mises Institute in Auburn, Alabama, on 24 July 2014. If you would like to learn a little about the Austrian schools view of what happened with the robber barons and the progressive era. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-VA9VZeox3g
  4. Those were among my first choices but i thought they were to on the nose.
  5. That's why I like the name so much
  6. Austrian school for the winnn!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  7. No offence taken arthidon your right my op might have been to negative. There are good values to be had in the pledges. They are offering good things to the backers for lower prices then will be found after the KS. Yes it is about supporting ideas and projects you like. I made the post after i read what the op in this thread http://community.crowfall.com/index.php?/topic/4699-custom-unique-guild-heraldry-subject-to-approval/ got has their answer about use their own guild logo. I would like to use some of the fine artwork the folks in the guild are making. I should have waited or not posted at all. However misguided my post was I stand by what i meant by it even though I don't make it to clear in the first post. I think with my other posts what i was trying so say came out more. That is, if your selling something( that is what you doing by offering more or better items for more money) in bundles of multiple items in differing amounts you can't just say you will never get these prices again if you don't get it now even if that is the case. I say this because the person does not know what they are paying for the individual items now. I can't know what the creators value their product at normally. So i don't know if the few items I would like in the next bundle will be more or less expensive than the bundle after the KS. Some people will say this is the risk of Kickstarter. No the risk of kickstarter is the person your giving your money to has no obligation to give you anything in return. There are many KSs that have add-ons so you get a bundle of something and add additional items you would like. This helps the creators and the backers. The backers know about what the individual product is worth and know they are getting a great deal with the bundle. The creator allows backers to get more of the items they really want and that increases the amount they might other wise pledge especially if there are large jumps in the bundle prices. I would like to pledge more than I am and help raise the pledge amount to get more stretch goals. But with the next level so much more and me not caring for some of things that it comes with. I don't know if I will. Sorry this so long and for adding to what should be a dead thread.
  8. I like books and the show. the show is getting away from the books. I hear people say watch the show then read the books.
  9. Nyt you are right they will cost more but we don't know what they cost now. So is it worth upping your pledge by a lot to get a little extra land. NO. Not if you don't really want the other stuff in the bundle you have to buy.
  10. If this is true it is not a good way to do a KS. Bundles with no add ons especially when those bundles have large differences in price are not good. The only way to get more of the things you like is to up your pledge buy a lot and get things you don't really want.
  11. This is My point with this. The price could be $20-$30 or more per piece of land and technically the price is better. I've never been a fan of KSs that don't have add on with that you can at least see what the creators value the products at.
  12. Never read those i don't. I only start them
  13. Well I am not crying I am merely stating my opinion on what I am seeing right now. May they work with the prices and change things I'm sure they will but the fact is they are selling things right now and telling people this is the best prices you will ever get. Yet you only now how much the bundle is and cant make a reasonable guess at the price of things after the KS even with the prices go up. I think the people who buy in to the "exclusively" will overly defend their choices when someone questions that choice even not to them directly.
  14. lol. I know its not a dollar. Its not that The Company can not afford it. Its that The Company questions why something that for some games is inexpensive or even free( The ability to use your own artwork) and why It is so much in the other direction here.
  15. I'm not asking it to be $1 I would have no problem paying a modest amount to use the work a member of my guild made for us that is unique. I don't want to take someone who is making a game and have them make me a guild crest when I already have one. People who over pay for "exclusivity" are foolish in my opinion. my spelling is the worst
  16. Which is fine if you want one their artists to make your crest but if i have my own artwork i want to use then what. Pay the 500 bones for their guy to redo the work I have or us their creator which i'm sure will be good but we don't know whats in it so you may not get what you want.
  17. Raeshlavik I agree with you $60 for 9 acres is a good price. As to the person needs to look it over sure. Look, ok no weiners good.
  18. I'm going start this buy saying i'm a sapphire backer. However theses prices sound like they are going to be overly expensive. When I see someone ask if this or that can be gotten at the in game shop. All I see back is yes there will be many things available but not at the rock bottom prices they are now. Well my question is WHAT ARE THOSE PRICES? If I would like more things (which I do) its $500 for the next bundle and I would get 10 pieces of digital land, a slightly larger digital castle and the ability to use my guilds own art work for our heraldry. That last one I found a post where it was said heraldry would be $500 alone after the KS. Being part of a mercantile guild it is important to know when your getting a bad deal and this is starting to smell worse and worse everyday.
  19. Your answers on prices are not helpful at all. All you guys say is yes you can buy things but (sarcastically) you wont be able to get if for the low low price you can now. Everything is in a bundle even if I would like more things (which I do) its $500 more for the next bundle. So for the 10 pieces of land and the ability to use my guilds own artwork its going to be more than $500 dollars in game. If not that is what your making it sound like.
  20. We're all Keynesian now. Wait no i'm not. We're all Rothbardian now. Yes now that's a catchy song.
  21. These guys. $500 dollars for your own Guild's Heraldry. Wow so its pay $1000 dollars to get your guilds heraldry or take your chances with our system. But you don't get to see whats in our system. Now I didn't play ArcheAge but if i understand what the OP is saying. In it you could use your own guilds picture for free. From what I've heard of that game if it cost a bunch of money to do something like that they would have charged out the butt for it.
  22. I would like to know the answer to this question if it is around here somewhere but I would also like to expand this question. What are the differences in the standard and expanded heraldry options. I'm at the sapphire level right now but how much of a differences is there. Also, no what I shouldn't keep going I have so many questions about the pricing for this kickstarter and what the pricing will be for in game purchases that I don't want to seem a pain.
  23. I like the idea of appointing someone to head a campaign. As for the name I know there are folks who don't like it. I am using the EIC for inspiration. Its proper name was the Honourable East India Company. I wanted to one up them so added Most before Honorable then went further by adding Prestigious. Trade was not in their name but I wanted to show scales in the guild emblem and a T kinda looks like one and if the T is replaced by a scale the idea may still come across. This is the short explanation I don't have time right now to really make my plea for the name.
