DKLond said:I don't know how many times CIG have to explain that the server can't provide better performance for the clients until they implement the new netcode they've been working on for a very long time.
Originally, most of that was supposed to be in 3.0 - but it was postponed for 3.1 I believe.
Meaning, even if there's going to be SOME performance improvement in 3.0 (LIVE version) - it won't be until 3.1 that we're going to see how the planned netcode integration will improve the performance.
Also, it won't be until they have a solid frame-rate that they expand the player count.
This, too, has been made public several times - and yet it seems the detractors are still conveniently forgetting and pretending that this early Evocati build is, somehow, representative of the best CIG can do.
It's the same old bullshit

Gdemami said:Yes, that is precisely what pledging makes of you - a donor. It is an entire principle of fundraising/crowdfunding.rpmcmurphy said:
Making a pledge on the KS website does not necessarily make it a donation.
I am done with this conversation, you are trying so hard it goes beyond stupid...
Gdemami said:Lucky backers are not consumers then, they are donors.rpmcmurphy said:The TOS doesn't really mean much though, they can write whatever they want but if it attempts to break consumer law then it has no bearing.
Again, whether you are fundraising via Kickstarter or directly through your website makes no difference - you pledge/donate, you are a donor.
