TL;DR - they're good devs and deserve all our money.
I've been keeping an eye on Crowfall since the Kickstarter three years ago. I've watched every single YouTube video update and read every article, so I'm very much a fanboy but at least I'm informed. The devs aren't just some upstarts with lofty dreams and promises built on nothing. They are hardened veterans who are very much the old school gamers from the demographic they're building the game for. They know how to make the game, they know very well what their technical and financial limitations are, and in my eyes they are keeping their word to the T. Only the impatient are complaining about release time.
Every third party news site passing along their updates seems to elicit this knee jerk response from children without perspective. These guys are making a new type of MMO on a budget, and in a reasonable amount of time considering the target scope and quality level. They are directly avoiding the bland WoW formula without flying into the sun like Darkfall.
At this point, the game is fluid, concise, and mostly functional near the end of pre-alpha. The devs are smart, funny, cool and absolutely hate FTP and PTW. MTX isn't inherently evil if approached legitimately for cosmetics or DLC.
The game isn't done yet, and they have to pay the bills. They do not have 50 million just laying around to fund another WoW or Everquest clone. I hope in two years, the game is very successful and popular, then all the naysayers are eating their words with a tall glass of STFU and a seasoned side of I Told You So.
Those can be summarised in two consistent themes (dead horses?)nariusseldon said:wow wow wow .. what ONE specific issue?MadFrenchie said:Unprecedented levels of consistent trolling about one specific issue that you constantly bait people into arguing with you about.
old school MMORPG static spawn is boring?
whales support f2p games?
f2p games are dominating p2p games?
community is not needed in MMOs?
virtual persistent world is not needed in MMOs?
Devs are not interested in old school MMOs anymore?
The list goes on and on. Which ONE specific issue are you talking about?
