Yeah. It was pretty obvious that if they had their "soft launch" this year they would have crashed.Kyleran said:This indie team seems to be the next best at raising funds after SC, looks like they'll make it to the gateJamesGoblin said:CU total budget was ~$9M at some point last year, as hinted by Mark Jacobs in comments, here on MMORPG.com. That's before licensing (which Crowfall did partially, for $2M so far), before possible equity (which makes lions share of CF budget, ~$14M as you can see below), before any major "outter" investors and before any hype, say in beta - especially pre-launch.Syphin_B said:This game is making Camelot Unchained look like vaporware. They're over there building a engine for a couple of years with no release in sight with a budget of 4,477,842 so far. Always felt like that team was just too small to take on something like a in-house engine including a 3 faction RvR game, a lot of work for a team that small. Kudos to the Crowfall guys
PS for anyone curious, here you can see Crowfall's funding breakdown (~$20M total) - https://crowfall.com/en/funding/
I have not had a chance to read the template, but he seems to be spot on with the term "gambling mechanisms". By making this illegal for those who are under 21, gaming companies will sit up and take notice. No doubt they will fight this, I understand EA earns billions just from FIFA using gambling mechanisms.
Early days, but some hope for those who consider gambling in gaming as a shameful aberration from gaming ethos.
Yes. Two simple rules were too hard to follow: only things that actually exist (not promised to someday exist) and nothing related to stuff you can buy.mystichaze said:Why bother, from the way things are written in your op post you only devalue what players say with your tone. I am seriously tired of attempting logic with you people. It is apparent you have your minds made up no matter what someone says. And to be honest I am glad you are not part of the CoE community.
I am done with your forums and your narrowmindedness.
Despite attempts to derail... this thread exists to discuss the concept of raising money through a Patreon to buy copies of a game (eta 2 years from now) for people than cannot raise the ~$40 on their own.Panther2103 said:What even is this thread, it's like a bunch of personal attacks and random arguments going on between two different forums. This is crazy.
