Well, it's a bittersweet announcement. I actually started my excitement by pledging $25 on kickstarter. But then I continued to watch the cast and heard richard garriott say "Not focusing MMO" and then explaining the instanced gameplay. Yes, you can see friends...but the thousands of people online will be like "snapshots" it seems. The world still will be persistent I'm sure, but this isn't the next dream in my view. I had to then cancel kickstarter because I really don't want to get burned on this one.
What do you guys think? Did any of you pledge? If so, what are you thoughts about the instanced gameplay and "overworld" type design?
Edit: Just want to clarify, this isn't to say I won't pick it up at launch. But I certainly don't feel like I should pledge at this time unless it's something I can put my soul into. This just doesn't feel right for that.
