I see people claiming this a lot and it's perplexing to me. SOE selling founder packs for alpha access in no way makes this crowd funded. Sure they have a more open earlier development but that doesn't make this crowd funded, there was no kickstarter, SOE had the funds to start this, players are not investors or backers.
Just seems like pulling the wool over peoples eyes so they can get more money by emulating kickstarter.
Feel free to enlighten me on the subject...
Don't get me wrong this has nothing to do with the game which I think has some cool concepts but the way it's being branded. I'm not even sure SOE called it crowd funded but they hammer the help us build the game thing all the time which seems a little disingenuous.
So to go back to the title: How is this game crowd funded?
