    The title of this thread is a bit misleading to me.   Backers donate; customers pay.  The developers may have made promises to encourage backers and may be about to unravel those promises, but no one is getting 'less than they paid for'.  The correct semantic statement should be 'less than they expected'.

    I find it fascinating when the guy on the corner you just gave money to went straight to the liquor store and you are outraged.  Crowd-funding provides exactly the same fiscal and legal safeguards as panhandling.



    Therein lies the problem that needs to be resolved before crowdfunding spirals further outta control.

    There's no precedence set.  There needs to be one.  Obviously the fact that these games are often played in multiple countries presents an issue, but some judge somewhere really needs to pull the door open on this to start building a framework with which to hold developers responsible and protect consumers.
    The sooner that the Securities and Exchange Commission (and similar foreign agencies) step in and put some concrete definitions on this whole crowdfunding phenomena, the better we will all be.   Then maybe we can focus on games, rather than on how they are funded.

    Logic, my dear, merely enables one to be wrong with great authority.

    You got the number wrong. Its 50000km² per kingdom.

    And now we are at the point where the defenders criticize each other because they don't bother to read properly.
