  • Aori said: Tried the beta, I like the games but because of vision related issues, I can't play it. The Droids on the beta map blended perfectly into the terrain for me, I literally couldn't see them. As with other Dice games in the modern era,…
  • cameltosis said: I would be extremely surprised if we're still waiting another 2-3 years for CU.  If I'm remembering correctly, Mark wanted his beta tests to be as close to the finished product as possible. Beta 1 will be a minimum viable…
  • Octagon7711 said: meddyck said: The only thing that really has gone wrong is that the company keeps telling people that Beta 1 or the announcement of Beta 1 are coming "soon" when in reality they have proven unable to estimate dates at…
  • Kyleran said: I've become far less forgiving with the lack of any sort of high level timelines. Even if the final release date is still murky, this far into the project (4.5+ yrs) there's no good reason to not have a published beta 1 date. We…
  • Kyleran said: Maybe your donation will permit them to publish a delivery schedule. I gave them mine over 4.5 years ago and am still waiting. Software isn't like a package shipped from a warehouse to your home. A delivery schedule woul…
  • The only thing that really has gone wrong is that the company keeps telling people that Beta 1 or the announcement of Beta 1 are coming "soon" when in reality they have proven unable to estimate dates at all accurately. They should just be quiet a…
  • cameltosis said: It will have PvE, it's just limited to The Depths.  So, if you are going to play, might be worth waiting a month or two after launch and then just pick the most dominant side on a given server, thus increasing your odds t…
  • If you don't understand why somebody would want to play an RvR only game for years, then CU probably isn't for you. Many CU backers also can't understand why anyone would want to play a PvE heavy game for years. News flash: different players have di…
  • I think ignoring the game until much later in beta is a good idea for backers or potential future players who aren't really interested in actually testing the game as it develops. Launch won't be happening anytime soon and when Beta 1 starts is stil…
  • Kyleran said: Perhaps you are confusing CU with another title as it's not available yet to play. We've been waiting almost a year now for the open beta announcement. Likely they'll have more payment options once they fully launch,  which…
  • Theocritus said: Are there even 500 people playing it? There are roughly 25000 backers so at launch the answer to your question will be: yes.
  • Copperfield said: severval developers working on this engine for CU have 500 years experience with coding.. Yet on mmorpg.com some people claim here to know better. also i dont think any player who is intrested is this game mind the long deve…
  • No announcement of a date nor even an announcement of a date to announce a date yet. Work on getting the game to beta continues at the same steady, methodical pace as always. When there is something to announce CSE will let everybody know.
  • The small s servers can even be smaller than an entire island. I.e. a very large island could be broken into several servers which players would cross between seamlessly. So island 1 could consist of servers A, B, and C while island 2 contains serve…

  • That was an...interesting...read.
  • Possible? It already does that! Yes making their own engine is the big reason aside from difficulty hiring programmers until they opened the Seattle office for how long development has taken. Redoing the ability system took like 6 months. That…
  • Actually CSE has repeatedly declined to give out exact numbers for the amount of vertical progression in CU. We don't know whether it is 5%, 15%, 25%, 50%, or more at this point. They have only said that there will be much, much less vertical progre…
  • Galadourn said: Oh, I just realized I had chipped in 50$ for this project via KS back then ...wonder when it's gonna release The only real answer at this point is: eventually. Hell that's also the answer for when Beta 1 starts althoug…
