  • Star Citizen 3.0 - Refusing Refunds

    During the kickstarter it would count as a pledge, ie you are promising to pay $60 if they reach their funding goal but after the kickstarter it's not a pledge.
    You can count it as you want, does not make it so tho.

    Whether you are fundraising via 3rd party platform or directly makes no difference, pay attention to TOS.

    Consumer sales act is applied to companies when they sell goods to private citizens and the terms dictated by the consumer sales act can't be negotiated.

    name one....
    Divinity: Original Sin?
    I would normally argue because its not an MMO, but they did make it for like 5 million. But I think they only got a million from KS.

    So points for making it cheap, but not an MMO.
    If you're limiting the genre to MMO then... Albion... Albion is pretty successful so far.
    Albion online wasn't a kickstarter.
    and its not what I would call successful either. but mincing words I suppose.

    As for the list of game the other guy mentioned. I never heard of any of them.

    Also the ORIGINAL statement was "GREAT" mgames.Yet every once in awhile a great game gets made. "Yet every once in awhile a great game gets made."


     So once again I could play the semantics card and double down and claim none of them, not even divinity would qualify there. But of course everyone can have an opinion on 'greatness'. But I dont think the general consensus on Albion would be anything other than 'meh'.

    But the picture in the original post has been all over the internet for awhile now. So really nothing new here.
    The games mentioned are all well known, except for Balrum perhaps. None of them are AAA of course, else they wouldn't have used KS in the first place. Divinity 1 and 2 are actually some of the greatest games made. According to Gamerankings' meta data the second one is actually the best PC game ever made, or second place now. That is as objectively great as it gets.

    The original plan for Divinity: Original sin 2 was to never go through kickstarter.

    There was bit of a reaction to the news and the CEO discussed with the fans on whether they should go for kickstarter or not.

    In the end the positive was bigger than the negative and they went back to kickstarter as explained here.

    For bigger projects kickstarter only cover a small part of the costs and developers have to find the rest of their funds elsewhere.

  • Old school design flaws... are they real problems !

    When you are hyping a game design flaws doesn't exist for anyone but a hater.

    We will make sure that people can play the game on shorter session and we will focus on people playing with friends but at the same time we will make it take really long time for people to gather up so that you can't really play with your friends on shorter sessions.

    We will focus our attention on group content but we will also provide raid content and enough solo content, the game will primarily be a PvE game but at the same time its going to have PvP and we will make all those things on a smaller budget than everyone else.

    Low server population can be a really huge issue but we will make sure there won't be low server populations, not by technical solutions but by being such awesome people that will adjust amounts of servers so that it can't cause a problem, unlike everyone else that failed at it in the past.

    What a mess of a crafting design.   It is like they want to transport us 20 years backward.
    Given that UO just recently became 20 years I'm not sure you mean that as a positive or a negative.
