I feel that giving money to CoE will be a good learning experience for some people, so I don't mind if my own "hate" posts make those type of people decide to check it out and donate to it against sound advice. The hard way is the best way to learn!JustDrake said:Well it' good to see that the folk here who "hate" the game and the dev team actually follow it more than me.
I mean the publicity that your hate gives must be helping swell up SBS coffers.
I mean come on I would check out the game just because of your distaste. It would pique my interest just to find why you have an obsession on slandering a game in development, I would be wondering:
1) Is your hate justified?
2) Is your hate fair?
3) Is the game looking good and you work for a competitor?
Charities are required to provide financial statements to their donors to make sure they're spending the money responsibly. Large crowd funded ventures are only exempt from this because crowd funding is a new concept and the law hasn't gotten around to them yet, and it probably won't until a major disaster happens.IsilithTehroth said:They really need to hold people that "donate" to a games production accountability. Seems like all these kickstarter mmos are just cash grabs that promise the world, dont deliver and end of selling things before they even have concept art made.
Yes, they were supposed to give up. Sometimes you need to admit when a project isn't doable (and that's before the whole thing about CoE not being doable from the start even if it got the money it wanted considering what it was promising).StaalBurgher said:Ok... so they didn't get an investor. Are they supposed to give up? I just do not get the logic. They want to make a game. They have to get the money some how. Clearly they have found a way to do it.Slapshot1188 said:They were supposed to fund the company by using the Kickstarter as seed money to attract an investor. That apparently has not happened and thus the over the top, ($10 votes for king, buy your name reservation, etc...) continued focus on the cash shop.
YashaX said:@Slapshot1188 OK Slap, so here is a challenge for you. Using the same conditions as your OP states, can you list positives for a different "indie" mmo that is also in development (eg: Crowfall, CU, etc)?
As pointed out by Kyleran, the actual list was for the most DUBIOUS transactions (again, dubious means "uncertain" and "doubtful"), in which case, transactions for a game that isn't even out apply even MORE than a game that's out.mgilbrtsn said:Those ships aren't micro transactions and how any game can make these kinds of lists without being 'out.' Since we don't know the final product, save it, at least until it's closer to release.
