Just a note... looks like CoE could actually be a 2019 launch based on the info below. They still have to launch the Kingdoms Game and the Mud Game. Then after that it's 12-15 months. Then Exposition runs for 3 months. Then finally, if all goes well... launch.
Assume best case scenarios. Domain selection in March. Kingdoms in April. Mud in May. Then 12 months development (minimum listed). Then 3 months Exposition puts us at Aug/Sep 2018. Given their inability to hit ANY date so far... from my perspective CoE now looks like its 2 years away and a 2019 possible release
Does anyone have newer information that can update/change the timeline above?
Maybe Tim can get some feedback from Caspien for his next CoE article. I think most folks are under the impression that they were still targeting Sep/Oct this year for the Exposition(3 month no wipe head start). As far as I can tell the delay from the Kickstarter ETA was only leaked out in this random forum post. If there is a Dev Journal or some other official update please link!
On one hand that's good because its a MUCH more reasonable timeline... but they really should have made an official announcement if they are not going to hit their Kickstarter ETA (especially if it's such a huge delay). No wonder they are looking for added funding. An extra year+ of development is expensive!

Starvault's reponse to criticism related to having a handful of players as the official "test" team for a supposed MMO: "We've just have another 10ish folk kind enough to voulenteer added tot the test team" (SIC) This explains much about the state of the game :-)
