imageCrowd-Funded PvP Extravaganza a Columns at MMORPG.com

This week Tim Eisen crams too much into one column as he attempts the unheard-of feat that is covering Chronicles of Elyria, Crowfall and Camelot Unchained at the once! In case you are wondering, in the interest of fairness he drew names from a hat to decide which one got the lead in image.

    "I suppose that part of the backer appeal; the content that is created as the story of a crowd funded game develops. "

    It's also fun for non-backers and creates lots of content for them as well!

    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 :-)

    Mark Jacobs basically lives through those words.

    [Couldn't blame you if you had a certain partiality towards that direction, though; RvR territory control, together with predesigned (though obviously customisable) classes, is the secret to a good MMO - the world just hasn't quite had the chance to see how rewarding its teamplay and objectives can be.]

    I do favor a MMO, her name was Star Wars Galaxies and I'm still not over her.

    Naw, we just don't care much about the other two.

    On hiatus from EVE Online since Dec 2016 - Screw off-grid PVE boosting changes

    Pouring on extra "Salt" for 2017

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    Don't just play games, inhabit virtual worlds™

    People do not care about CU either...there is no player base for MMO with antique mechanics and devs living in the past...

    Might not be large, but there is definitely a player base.

    Besides, go away, I was just messing with Kano.

    I lost all interest in Chronicles of Elyria when thy announced they were doing a single player first.  I see that as a complete waste of development resources.  I just do not believe they will make the expected money from such an endeavor.  

    I am still watching the other two.  Could be some really decent pvp coming down the pike.

    As to Gdemami, waste of time replying to any of the posts, when you are clueless and determined to stay that way it serves no purpose.

    Wait...I thought they were doing a single player demo first...wasn't that just a demo? Are they doing a full AOC thing now?
