    I know it will get a chunk at the end, but right now the kickstarter appears to suffer from premature ejaculation.

    Some good points here, both ways. No one's changning any one else's mind on either side. One funny part, some loathe it because this game keeps "spamming" their recent thread feed on the front page. Solution: Post in said sub forum. Who is helping create this buzz lol? So wierd

    Not sure how you can "hype" a game that hasn't even been determined if it will actually be made at this point.  Until CSE commits fully to making CU (by reaching the $2m kickstarter goal), no point in hyping it.

    Furthermore, the kickstarter campaign is designed to test whether or not there is enough interest in having a pure RvR game.  If it can't get $2m in committments, then it shows that there aren't enough people who want that kind of game, and MJ will not have to spend $2m of his own money on the game.

    So, hype meters might be interesting, but the ultimate hype meter is the kickstarter campaign.

    well its gameplay gets back to holy trinity, its pvp its focused on RvR (which kills the competiton which is the heart of pvp) and its low budget which means no artist or anything serious with some aesthetics ...

     

    i dunno why to pledge or get hyped ???

    Very well written and interesting observation. Lots of things to consider in your intuitive analysis of the subject.

    Ah cool, thanks for the reminder to check the hype boards today.

     

    It's kind of a weak argument to say only people who love CU get to vote.  Free will.  Oh well, voted.

    This happens to every game that hovers near the top of the Hype meter.  I suggest living with it.  It's not going to hurt the development of the game.
  • KarteliKarteli Providence, PAPosts: 2,646Member
    Aye, just intriguing because it has the opposite intended effect.

I think if it was at the top, it would help the Kickstarter fund as well, hopefully people stop doing this, or what not, so it can stay at the top.... It's unfortunate that people are trying to keep it down on purpose. I wish there was something we could do about these false ratings, that are in favor of other games, or seem to be...

     

     

    ....a epic fail is a fail, its that simple friend.......They are providing us with with nothing and expecting tons of cash in return.  Look at the recient kickstarter from Chris Roberts, for Star Citizen.  He has a working video demo, laid out basic structure for his game world.  This had well......

    People seem to be kicking this game up for some reason now.

     

    Maybe fake accounts, who knows.  It's weird.

    How is someone hyping it at 1 any less valuable than you hyping it at 10?

    Sorry dude but there's nothing to see here. You're hyped, you give a ten, some other people aren't hyped at all, they give it a 1.

    Freedom of speach, bro, this isn't USSR.

    I have absolutely no interest in playing this game, in which I would typically not bother to participate in it's hype meter.  But I guess that if people only vote on games they intend on playing, it skews the hype meter results.  With that logic I had better add my rating.

    All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

    I get banned in the forums for games I love, so lets see if I do better in the forums for games I hate.

    I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.

    Ask yourself, why does the game get #1 in the first place?

     

    They've nothing to show for their claims, beyond claims and promises.

    People on these forums (and others) have had their fill of 'promises undelivered', so why should a game that promises stuff (yet shows no proof whatsoever) get rewarded with praises?

     

    I doubt everyone is 'kicking it down' on purpose, but you sure as heck need to have something to prove your claims in order to stay up top the hype meter.

     

    I, amongst many others have wasted too much money on claims and promises to believe in them at this time and age, last few examples being SWTOR and GW2.

    Currently playing: -

    Waiting for: Class4.

    Dead and Buried: ESO, NWO, GW2, SWTOR, Darkfall, AO, AC2, Vanguard, CoH/V, EnB, EVE, Neocron, FE, EQ, EQ2, DAoC, FFXI, FFXIV, SWG, WoW, and billions of eastern junks!

    if it makes the Op feel happy,i did not vote on this and i think it will be a complete dud.

    FYI OP,from what i unbderstand they might use a median scoring system or at least that is usually how any creditable system works.

    Basically meaning yo umay have hurt the game more than help it's hype meter by voting 10/10.People that vote 1 or 10 are probably eliminated from the scoring.

    No matter i find it extremely funny that the OP is worried about people giving it a low rating and he gave it an unfounded 10/10.

    10/10 is not only biased and  an unrealistic score but it is saying you expect that god himself is making this game.

    Scarlet Blade dont count!

    It's in the Hype because it is the hype! We are super excited about being part of this and actually having our voices heard for once!!!! :) :) :)

    This isn't a AAA mmorpg.... it's a niche, and you're fooling yourself if people aren't 1 voting this game to kick it down. It doesn't go from 8.37 before DEPTHS is announced to 8.41 back to  8.39 without some manipulation by others, and it's backings go up to 3k an hour... when it was at 1100 on a good hour the last 2 days. That's all the proof you need that the haters gonna hate. or the carebears are going to stare, i should say~

     

     

    now back to 8.42 time to go spam your ESO forums for more votes guys!  lol
