  • Nice to see Gendark making excuses in advance for his previous prediction now that it's looking more likely that the game will fund. I guess a lot of people who were overly bold with delcaring the project doomed earlier could end up looking a little silly in less than 24 hours.

  • Heh, you can literally see a new backer joining every 5-20 seconds right now.

    Seriously if this where any other game, people would scream " scammers" all the way.

     

    CU campain for the last week was only "lets add more bigmoney tiers with  smokecontent" to grab more money fast... nothing about realm mechanics / conquest or somthing realated to pvp. 

     

    Again ...  for the last days they added 1k 3,2k and 3.5k tiers as a desperate measure.  every other kickstarter project that aimed or funded with 2m $  had x3 x5 more backers than CU(12k)

    I have to LOL at this!

    You just wish you were part of a community as passionate and enthusiatic about the early development of a game.

     

    They should rename the game, Houses Unchained.

    I understand you are excited, but why not wait until it actually funds before you "oh so maturely" rub another persons face in it? :p

    I wasn't disciplined enough to wait. My apologies :p

    Still no guarantee it will fund, either, but it doesn't look like failure is very likely at this point. I'd say it's "up to Amazon" right now :)

    First, i pledged it (again) some days ago, but the 25$ tier, why ? easy, some friends/guildies want to play it and i take it like a preorder but. And thats the big one, for me the CU campain has been a complete fail. 12k backers really ?? 158$ per backer is insane, updates about ducks and funny stuff and tons of concept art but not specific mechanics, because nothing is set on stone yet... i still think MJ selling policy of "let me grab your 2m$ and then i will put mine" its really a bad one.

    What they should have done its to work some time and spend some money in a decent game prototype, something to show to the crowd and keep them excited and set some concepts of gameplay in stone... classes, class mechanics, races, how RvR will work etc...  instead of just talking of posibles maybes. And finally having done all that asking for something like 1m$ - 1.5m$ and they doing updates about factible stretch goals.

    Anyway if CU is funded, then better for me, another game to play in 3 years, but that doesn't meant that the whole kickstarter campain was done right.

    wow over 1.9 million still 21 hours to go.. looking good

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

  • The way I see it, if you get $2 million dollars to make your game through kickstarter, you didn't do too bad.

    well, considering a KS campaign's goal is to raise x amount of money, that's what it should be judged on; so if it funds, then it's a successful KS campaign. You can argue on the methods to achieve the funding, but the end result speaks for itself.

    30k in the last 19 min. How i know that? It was the difference between kicktraq last checked 19min ago and kickstarter itself ...
  • boxsndboxsnd Kraxton, ARPosts: 438Member Uncommon

    It seems we will get to $2 mil way earlier than I thought. We may even hit some stretch goals.

     

    according to this page http://hive.borg-collective.org.uk/cuks.php?i=d if we keep up that pace we will end up at $2.6 mil

    21 hours to go but I do believe he might make it.

    Sorry I didn't pledge, there are just to many variables that didn't seem confident enough to me.

    To me he either started the kickstarter project too soon, or he should have made his predicted release year differently and added a few more years. I simply don't believe he will be able to develop the game in concept to a game that stands up too games also released 2 to 3 years from now.

    I know he seeks niche gamers and I am sure many of them will actually play the game, but will all of them play it, now we are seeing a shift with upcoming new MMORPG's compared to the themeparks we have seen the last few years.

    For those who have pledge's I honostly hope CU is going to be fully funded and might proof me wrong.

    Stretchgoals come later in the 30 days after kickstarter when paypal kicks in. We kinda will have two "kickstarters" as i understand it:

    1. The current official one that determines wether the game will enter development.

    2. A second unofficial one with paypal over the CSE site(like star citizen) which offers same(?) pledge tiers and determines stretch goals. Its meant to give people a chance that don'T own a credit card(mostly europeans, maybe mainly germans).

    Congrats. Only a act of (choose your deity) will stop this now. In fact i am pretty sure MJ and guys would pitch in a fund what is left if for some reason it would not get the last bucks.

     

    Looking forward to see how the game shapes up. especially with WAR fresh in mind.

    See here is the problem I having with CU being funded. If you look at Shroud of the Avatar they had 23k backers fund the game at 1.9 million. Camelot Unchained has less than double the amount of backers at it seems it will hit 2 million. So tell us CSE, which one of you guys were dumping your own personal money just so the game funds ? See right there that tells me there is really no market for this game and in the long run it will fail. Very disappointed about what is going on.

    The way i see it the extra tiers where unnecessary even, the game is now prominetly displayed on kickstarters ending soon category and many people lurk there checking for interesting projects, its also the biggest kickstarter to end soonish so it gets people attention.
  • You sound more than a little paranoid. Don't you think they would've simply set the goal lower if they were going to pour a ton of their own money into the kickstarter early on themselves anyway?

    Those are some pretty wild accusations given lack of proof.

    it's alright to be dead wrong.

    They could still be worthwhile for reaching the stretch goals.

    In essence what I hear you saying is:

    a three letter comment :

     

    LOL

     

    In fact i'll had a bit more : Since the very first day, the average amount per backer was at $160 dollars. The "few" people that believes in CU believes in it VERY MUCH, plain and simple.

    we'll be around 13-14k backers at then end, it isnt much, but i assume there will be at least 3 times that amount of actual players, wich would be a correct amount of players for a niche game, and thats what it is.

     

    And i'm suprised in a way that you said that, didnt you say this, a while ago ? : 

     

     

    Did the 110 pledge. I was comfotable with that. Hopefully many more will pledge so we can get this baby rollin.

    There are several reasons to the higher pledge/backer.. If you look through the posts they have been outlined many times..

    Wow very surprised at the progress only 75k to go I think the game will very likley be funded. About 25k was pledged in 1 hour so 75k in 21 hours seems very likley. If not hopefully they are close enough to their goal to fund the game.
