    I cannot believe that they are going to cut down and scale back what is available at Early Entry even MORE than originally believed.  They shouldn't charge a sub for this.  It's pretty sad.  I had high hopes for this game, bought a Crowdforger Buddy account and 2 addon Adventurer accounts.  Those were supposed to be for friends but after all this time GW STILL has not figured out how to allow those accounts to be traded so their intended recipients can upgrade and get in Early Enrollment.  Honestly, at this point I doubt I will even activate any of the accounts for EE.

     

    If the game does well, 4 unused accounts with Destiny's Twin and the kickstarter reward items should be worth something...

     

    I hope.

    Starvault's reponse to criticism related to having a handful of players as the official "test" team for a supposed MMO: "We've just have another 10ish folk kind enough to voulenteer added tot the test team" (SIC) This explains much about the state of the game :-)

    To be more accurate, they're staggering some of the things.

    But otherwise I agree, they'd do better just getting up to what it should be, otherwise from a player's pov, why pay?

    The only rationale I can think of is they want to get that date for their revenue generation come what may and/or they want more players on the servers to test before adding more features or irrespective of the features being ready immediately - which may end up providing more work.

    But tbh, I'd delay jumping in if that's how you feel. I do agree devs need to communicate better on this. Why jump in and not wait a few more weeks? Seems a better decision to me.

    I suspect they want to add more artists and coders to the team. They have the project budgeted, and a timeline is laid out, but I suspect that since the artist charged with building the physical environment was caught sleeping on the floor of his office they decided they need to generate more revenue to hire more talent. This was probably compelled by the availability of the Emerald Spire, and the consequent need for interior environmental art which is outside the scope of what they budgeted for this early in the development cycle.

    Think of it as a re-employment initiative for deserving artists and coders.

    To dream, perhaps to be.
