It seems many kickstarters are used as a way for known MMO developers to shift all the blame for their most recent failed MMO onto the AAA publisher. For instance, Microsoft wasn't breathing down Sigil's neck when they decided to use a outdated engine for Vanguard. No one forced them to make a clunky, buggy game that wouldn't run smooth on virtually any computer.
Every decision that caused Vanguard to fail rested on Sigil's shoulders alone and Microsoft pulled it's funding because the games finances were poorly handled and the game so poorly designed.Warhammer & Tabula Rasa were other disasters that had no one but themselves to blame.
So why is this blame shifting so widely entertained? Do fanboi's refuse to accept their favorite developers can no longer compete in today's market or are known developers just amazing at marketing themselves? Camelot Unchained hype vanished virtually overnight. If the 35million dollar Star Citizen fails will it damage all future kickstarters?
