We have lots of great examples of how to raise money to make a game, just no examples of really good games being made out of all this money. At least not in the MMORPG genre. When I start seeing that happen, then I'll be interested.
I'll give them one thing, this has been a smart campaign. Steven Sharif knows just what to say to people who follow MMORPG's. He certainly hits all the right chords when talking about pay to win and lotto boxes ect. I'll be keeping my money for now though. I remember this other guy that did a kickstarter way back in the day who was a one time successful game developer and a great salesman too. He had some amazing ideas and talked a great game. Well 6 years later and 150 million down the drain and nothing to show for it yet on that one.
I won't be handing over any money to a guy with no game development experience and who made his money selling 40$ bottles of orange juice to suckers who though it would make them immune to cancer or some nonsense. I'll be taking a wait and see approach on this one for sure. I hope he makes the game he is pitching because I would play it and be happy to pay for it, but not until I see it first.
