    There is a massive investment of 2-3 years (or more) and some serious programming going on to make an in-house dedicated MMO engine.
    This is the main reason Camelot Unchained is going at the pace it is.  They went with their own engine for the very reason that they knew they were going to need to handle mass population battles.  Something they felt middleware engines wouldn't be able to handle.

    Problem is, IMO not many people will probably be playing it as the hype dies (somewhat dead already).
     That's why Camelot Unchained hasn't "hyped" their game yet. They have been keeping quiet apart from their weekly backer updates. The sites that cover the game at this point do so at their own leisure more or less. Mark has said in these very forums a few weeks ago that he is not going to dump money into advertising till he has something ready for the consumer market. He's also budgeted well, and has more than he needs to get to that point without milking the backers.

    Proof is in the pudding and the eating of said pudding. Call me when they have something playable.
    Seems odd to go to the forums of games in development when you are only interested in completed games. 
    I got news for you playable does not mean completed game. Also guess where completed games come from, oh yeah games in development...
    They can play it in their office. If you are only interested in games that you yourself can play why are you in the forums for a game that is in still up in kickstarter? It wont be in alpha for at least a year, so see you later! 
    I'm pretty sure everyone on this site is only interested in games they can play... The main reason I'm even here is because this could be something I would get to play someday...

    I'm old and jaded and don't believe half of what I see and none of what I hear so would need some serious first hand play time to make an educated decision. I've seen way too many games promise the world and not deliver to just blindly take game studios at their word.

    I mean how many times have we heard, "We will not have a cash shop." then 6-12 months later, "Introducing our new cash shop." and that's not even touching the promised game features.
    I understand the "I will believe it when I see it" attitude. It is just odd to come into a post about an article talking about the game that has only 12 months in development and say "call me when its playable." Man, they just fucking started. Give them time. lol
    Not a single crowdfunded/kickstarted MMORPG has released yet.

    Even the ones that are playable are early access/beta/alpha.

    At this point everything being made is check back in a couple years and all I give them is more time.

    I mean so far every single kickstarter MMORPG has either missed multiple dates or just stopped giving dates. Don`t be surprised if one year turns into five and your still waiting...

    Elite Dangerous has launched already.
    Elite Dangerous is not an MMORPG.

    To @Nilden's point, how many times have we heard developers claiming they will "change the X" or "reinvent the way we Y" or "revolutionize Z"? 

    At this point, as a marketer in this industry, I would avoid those phrases like the plague.  They're overused and fraught with negative emotion as most gamers have, at some point, experienced a developer boast those lines and fail to change, reinvent, or revolutionize much of anything.

    It gives me pause when I see such phrases uttered in support of a title.

    EDIT- for typos.

    UPDATE: This was posted on Reddit today so and it's potentially pretty damaging to anyone who had hopes for this game, but it could be wrong. Either way, I thought I should share it just in case.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/pcgaming/comments/6cuzwx/wild_west_online_is_possibly_funded_by_sergey/

    Big Kudos to you for being unbiased and showing us the bad news too.

    Sergey Titov...
    When I read that name I wasn't even mad - I was amused.

    Well this explains why people originally thought this was Red Dead Redemption 2 and it took a few days for the devs to clear up this misunderstanding.

    What a convenient coincedence for the funding.

  • How to identify dubious Kickstarters, EarlyAccess and Crowd funded Projects.

    There's an easier method to identify dubious game development.......
    If it says.......

    Kickstarters, EarlyAccess and Crowd funded Projects

    I'm not getting invested. But that is just me.

    If they can release a game, I'll look at it. Otherwise........

    There is no game.

  • How to identify dubious Kickstarters, EarlyAccess and Crowd funded Projects.

    Have to agree with @SEANMCAD . The little guys get stepped on hard in these conversations. I would understand if some megacorp studio was holding a fundraiser (Why the hell would they need to fundraise?) but the little guys that would never get the chance otherwise have a chance to get funded and published because of fundraising such as kickstarter. 

    Not every game is a gem, but that little guy would sure appreciate your money for his hard work and hopes of making a living for the months and years of time and effort they put into it. 

    Don't bash the method, it's just silly man. Put yourself in their shoes for a moment. Would you enjoy the flack from threads like this?

  • Five Reasons Why MMOs Are Making a Comeback - The List at MMORPG.com

    I honestly wonder why 90% of you still come here, it is all doom and gloom and the genre is dead etc. etc. You people really don't enjoy coming here or reading the articles, so why? Why aren't you gone?

    and ohh, the list, it is shitty.

    no its not important.

    this insane obbession with daddy promises is silly.

    Is the game fun? if yes continue else dont buy

    DONE...no execptions, alterations, additions and otherwise. That is the single most important part of the game and I am telling you guys you are missing out of the best gaming experiences EVER in the history of gaming because your hyper sensitive on what the developer says or does not say

    Or the other option is that we safe money to spend on real games that are finished, polished and fun. I take that over just fun any day!
    but that is the thing you are missing out on here.

    THEY ARENT FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    these unfinished games are:

    MORE FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    feature for feature, game play to game play these games that are in early accces are MORE FUN than those that are not. So when I read stuff like people are suggesting here it reads to me that its being suggested that I should STOP PLAYING a fun game and instead START PLAYING and UNFUN game.


    You can stab yourself in the head with a fork all day if that is your definition of fun. No contention here, just don't assume others find that fun or try to convince them it is fun.
    and what exactly is my definition of fun?
    Compelling game play

    Whats people definition of fun around here?
    'completed games'

    I am currently playing My Summer Car which is made by one person, the controls are terrible, its glitchy and often buggy but the game experience itself as in you know that part of the game where what you do in the actual game as a game character? you know that part we all forget out because we are busy looking for bugs? yeah...that part is very compelling and enjoyable.
    Archage (which I played) was not compelling game play ..ever...anywhere
    So do you stop playing a game once it fully releases?
