  1. I can agree with a lot of the points/counterpoints made in this thread and I don't want to come off as angry at any of the people who have responded. The truth of the matter is that I personally feel dissapointed by the current development. I don't want to keep trying to bludgeon my point as I can agree that realistically it doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things. The developers will continue on their merry way despite any of my thoughts or opinions (and please don't take that as me thinking that my thoughts mean more than anyone else's). It comes down me, some random dude on the internet bought into a kickstarter and wishes this game was in a nearer to complete state(original huh). I do hope that they can deliver on this project as it would be fun to play and I can agree that at this point I should just move on as my personal grievances offer nothing constructive. For me, I just have learned that I will stay away from kickstarters/E.A. games unless I know exactly what I'm getting.
  2. Ok, so you're one of the elite few with reading comprehension skillz because obviously people like me don't. When they put on the kickstarter page that the estimated delivery is 2016 I now understand that that statement can mean 2016-2050 or whenever they feel like it because you can read gud. Look, I understand that things can get pushed back and development isn't easy. However, if you are gong to issue a statement that says we're going to deliver a product around this timeframe then within a reasonable amount of time of that timeline the product should be delivered. So if they said 2016, and late 2017 it was delivered then ok fine. However, this is not the case because they keep finding that they want to add features, or change features or some features didn't work out. That's part of development, but it leads to the thought that they really didn't have a focus from the get go. They had a snazzy idea that lots of people loved and jumped on board with it. I would like to see these kickstarter games get finished and play a game that I backed because I loved the idea when I did back it. I just don't see how many of you can look at this game and not see that the developer cannot deliver on a product that they said they'd deliver. Whether it be because they got excited by all the backing and decided they wanted to add more and more and now where stuck in a perpetual cycle of development. Or it's because they don't have clear direction as to what needs to be worked on and what should wait till after the game is complete. I agree that many AAA games have come out as utter garbage with predatory cash shop options. And just like most of you, I'm glad to see those games fail. Not because I'm happy about developers losing their jobs (which is horrible) but because those game companies need to learn that that is not what the market needs. However, that's a whole different conversation. The short of it, is no I don't want kickstarter developers to turn into AAA developers pumping out cash shop games. Realistically my point is this. They promised a game to be delivered in 2016 through their kickstarter campaign. It was not met. For various reasons, some good some bad. It sucks but that's what happened. We are now nearing 2020 and the game is still pre-alpha and does not feel like it's close to a launch. How is this not upsetting to you?
  3. The problem I have with this company is that they have promised us a game by now and we don't have anything besides a testing platform. While some of the systems are interesting and can be fun this is not a game. I personally feel lied to about this developers ability to create a game. My group of friends feel the same way and I've spoken to many others who feel similar regarding kickstarter games such as this. For me, it's not a matter of not being able to afford this, it's a matter of principle. I paid to back a game that I was excited for and believed I was getting involved in on a project that would have meaningful development. I believed that they were going to be able to create a game and be in at least beta by now. Instead we have been fed lies about why things have had to be pushed back. Systems weren't fun or they weren't ready and for some reason we kept on gobbling up these lies. It's the same cycle as Star Citizen and other kickstarter games that have no real accountability. They can take 10 years if they want, what real motivation do they have to complete this thing? Any competent developer of anything really would have goals to meet with repercussions if they are not met. I work as a software engineer and while I don't make games, I'm still held accountable for delivering my projects on time. These people don't want to hear any of this from us. They're willing to take our money but they don't give two poorly made sockss about anything negative we have to say. Either way, not like anything I say or do will really make any difference. Yes I'm annoyed but it's because I feel as though I was scammed out of my money. Obviously I won't get my refund and they get to keep on ignoring upset customers. Put this into perspective of any other business model. Let's say you go to buy a new car. You're excited about it as you were told about the upcoming features and the new look. You're all jazzed up for it and you put in a pre-order. The manufacturer says that it's not ready now but give it a year, two years hell even three years. You patiently wait but after three to four years you're wondering what's up. You check in on the progress and you find out that they're STILL in the planning phase of your car. They haven't even begun to really put it together. Would you not be upset and wish for a refund?
  4. I've been expecting a game that was developed and delivered by December of 2016 as stated in their kickstarter page. They have failed to deliver anything beyond what is pre-alpha. I'm not sure why you accept a product so minimal and basic in its current state. They are NO WHERE near having the game complete even 3 going on 4 years after their delivery expectation.
  5. Has there been any actual meaningful development with this game over the past 4 years really? This game feels like it's just spinning it's wheels and going no where like most other kickstarter MMO's. Now I understand they implement a feature here and there and then realize said feature needs tweaks and more time. However, this game is still nothing more than a glorified tech demo. Do we know of anything concrete or solid about this games development and when it will become a playable game? If not I would like to know if we are capable of requesting a refund as this game truly feels as though it has move very little towards anything resembling a release. Which was promised to be released in December of 2016.
  6. Is there a roadmap for this game at all? Seems like the game has been staying in Pre-Alpha for a very long time. I understand that designing a game takes a long time and I'm not questioning the designers abilities. I just feel as though the game is progressing at a very slow pace.
