In light of the recent hype and potentially old school game we have all been begging for for years I have to know.
It's Mark Jacobs. Sorry but I keep my money to help the little poeple. That really do not have the money themselves.
Come on. The budget for the game was finished maybe a year ago? I doubt they really need this money and the budget is set in stone already. Might pre-order when more info is available and where closer to launch though. I might be absolutly wrong, but I am sure the game will be created whatever I kickstart it or not and it will be exectly the same game. Very maybe some feature will be added later or release will be a later.
DAoC - Excalibur & Camlann
When it launches on kickstarter im finally out of economy hell, so yeeeees, and then some
I have funded Elite Dangerous and War For The Overworld in the past
backers get the option to get beta access and the full game at a cheaper price than at release, so why not...
Originally posted by boxsnd This will be the first kickstarter project that I will back.
I loved DAoC but I have been playing MMOs long enough to know that they all sound amazing on paper until they actually arrive. GW2 was supposed to be the second coming of Jesus and it turned out to be just another meh addition to the MMO collection with some strengths and weaknesses. I just can't get that fired up about a game anymore until I hear whether the player feedback is good or not.
Also, this might be sort of "in the spirit" of DAoC, but it is not DAoC II, which actually would get me fired up.
Put up a Kickstarter for DAoC II and then I will drop some money with no questions asked.

Same here. I would like to get in as soon as possible, so just gotta wait to see how much it's gonna cost me now.

Im old school and desperate, but also super leery after so many disappointments. If $10 gets me beta I'm down (and it would be the first project fund on KS). If they are asking a lot, or pulling a cash grab ex. for 1000 you get X, Y, and Z to make u uber, then I'll abandon the game entirely.

I've never funded a kickstarter before. As someone who has invested in other things in my life I found the thought of investing with no stake in the return, well offputting. I always invested with my head and not my hear. I live in Vegas and it was the same rule I followed when I bet lol.
That being said this will be the 1st kickstarter I fund. While I won't receive a financial return I will without a see a roi. That return will be in the form of entertainment. Yes anyone can say the right things. Unlike other kickstarter campaigns this will see the light of day if it is funded. Love or hate Mark he has started 2 companies, sold one, and created/launched two high profile games. You might not have liked his games but they did come out and he has a proven track record of bringing things to market. If this kickstarter goal gets reached I have no doubt the game will launch. I bet and invest with my head...normally. This time it will be with the heart.
Should I donate to Hoover when I want a new vacuum cleaner or Toyota when I want a new car?
If I am giving a company money to invest then I'll be getting stock back.
I don't mind pitching into KS projects or paying for pre-release game time and items. I LOVED DAOC, but nothing I have seen about this game appeals to me.

there will be big pledges and small pledges. War For the overworld I recently backed and other games usually offer a copy of the final game and beta access at very cheap price.
If you abandon the game if someone pledge $5000 then you should abandon it now, because there will be tier for rich people. They usually get invited to launch party and get to design some of the game, like a quest as ex

Uncertain at this point.
Theres a lot I like, but theres definetly things that make me a bit leary. When MJ said if they reached their KS goal, then he would throw his own cash in well, I dunno how accurate I am, but that sort of makes me feel like I/we are stepping out on to this limb before he is. Yet he's certainly the one to benefit the most from this project, as its his project.
I definetly need more info.
I've backed enough for a while. It's time for other people to kick down and support indie mmo games if they so desire.
A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.
MJ, you have my full support. I will be a kickstarter backer. I may not have a lot to offer, but i feel that's it's worth it.
