    Maybe now you will wait for a game to be released before spending money on it...

    Buying into early access has not guarantees.

    Just consider EA as you gifting money to the developer and you won't feel bad about it.

    Well, in my world games are very often completely free to play when released! But before they're released people can buy access to or items in the yet to be finished game for hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

    It sounds crazy, I know, but at least, that's what's happening in my world. How's it going in yours?

    it happens. while the correct answer is that you should wait till a game is released then pay for it, i understand the feeling of wanting to support/paying for something that you feel good about. that is why with these stuff when you do put money into them you just have to be ready for anything including disappointments.

    most of my posts are just my opinions they are not facts,it is the same for you too.

    Way to do your research, OP.  The game is in alpha.  If you were expecting "a very good beta", you've got the wrong game.

    Actually, this makes a lot of sense to me. Games, before being released are whatever the player imagines they are, or "will be."

    Early access with "ideas" is easily the best game ever, to each and every individual "consumer", based on a few tidbits of "We will have <X> feature" statements. It is only AFTER the game's release that the game is a known quantity, in it's semi-finished state.

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    I stopped long time ago to buy into beta or early access, I rahter wait for release and read player reviews.

    I bought in for only 19.99 the other day. I have not played much, but it is not as bad as you are making it out to be.

    Odd, for some reason I have never been burned by these early access/kickstarter/pre-alpha games. I guess I must just be lucky, right?

    What skin is it off of either of your noses what other people do with their money?  Cancer? Lesions?  Really?  Could we be a little more dramatic here?

     

    These are not AAA games being published here.  And you two  are probably some of the first ones bitching about the state that MMO's are in today.   If we want Indie devs to develop games without corporate money influencing the design, then the money has to come from somewhere , right?   What is wrong with people who believe in a game, from trying to support the development of that game?  That makes us a cancer?

     

    Seriously I don't get how you people seem to think that these games just grow on trees or that the stork will deliver them to you.  Grow up!

     

    Having said that,  the OP's whining is just as childish.   You got what you paid for OP.   If it wasn't to your liking thats too bad.   Say what you want about the game but don't come here complaining that you got ripped off when you should have known exactly what you were paying for.    A chance to play a game in Alpha.

    No content, did this poster even try the game?  This game has more content then some released games, actually for alpha game this is the best I've played... it's very good... yes it needs some polish and work... but I think poster didn't put much time into try the game out.

    "No content" is a code phrase that means, "This game doesn't have any/enough of the specific type of content that I want to play". What it is that he wanted, we don't know, but apparently not enough of it.

    I do not care what YOU do with your money, YOU can do what you want. What I have issue with is gamers as a whole buying into this crap. Buying access to alphas/betas, working cash shops in alpha/beta, these are problems we gamers have made worse. Instead of telling companies to launch finished product, they just lie to us and say it is alpha or beta. How low must the bar go before more gamers realize they are just exploiting us with clever buzz words and paid reviews.

    There many ways a company can get funding, selling alpha/beta access for a broken unfinished game isn't one I think we as gamers should support. You are not really buying alpha/beta, nobody can be so blind to believe that? They are selling the game they intend to fully launch with, they just lie to us calling it alpha or beta so we don't get mad and demand refunds. I do agree that the the OP got what he paid for and crying about it is childish.

    Specifically to this product I kind of disagree. While what you are saying is very much true for AAA multi-millions titles and publishers, I do believe that indie studios need support and selling early access means both more financial resources to support development and free testing resources. If you want to help or not comes down to your personal choice, but this is what you do with early access buying.. help. You don't get to play the game before others... you help to actually build the game.. sometimes for many months and changes to come.

     

    This is actually quite a playable game with many many things to improve/polish/balance, but a lot if not most of the features are in game and functional. I guess we will see how this game progresses in 6 months and we can re-evaluate your affirmations.

    alpha/beta who cares!  When I give $40 to a game that reviewers are giving an 8.3 I expect to see a game that has a good chance to be released.  This game only has enouph content to to get your money.  The content reminds me of 80s graphics!  During the time I played thier was not one update to the game.  I dont expect this game to be released!

    First cancer, then fools and now butt-hurt.   Sure just keep throwing out the insults. 

     

    You still haven't told me exactly how someone spending money on an alpha, affects YOU in any way whatsoever.    Why are you so butt-hurt if we do?  Because you want to try it for free but are too cheap?     This is the first game I have done this for,  and I did it because I was curious about it and I liked the direction I thought they were taking.  And what the heck , give them a little support.  I will definitely think carefully before I do it again.  But if I feel like it, I will.

     

    How the heck that gets your shorts all in a knot, is beyond me.

    I agree with Iugal, but you probably knew that if you read many of my posts. No legitimate source came along and said, "hey! indies have the right to build massive games without proper funding!". If you're professional enough to engage such a project, you're professional enough to get some legitimate backing, and I mean backing with consequences for failure, not just based on promises to the impulsive public. It's a terrible state, this method of development.

    Surprise! A couple of these games are, without a doubt, going to be successful. I imagine that's absolutely true, but here's the rub. This has created an environment so that every Tom, Dick and Harry with a smooth delivery can make promises and give the rest a bad name. This culture of rampant crowdfunding, although it's "good" in premise, is ill with problem participants. We are all contributing to this sick state of affairs, and the more we bury our heads about it, the worse it's going to get.

    Some people are smart about it. Some people are altruistic. Most are impulsive and possibly ill in that fashion. I wouldn't feel good if my income came from peoples' problems. I wouldn't feel good contributing to a situation wherein someone's income came from peoples' problems. I don't want this, I don't like it, and I won't play along and say it's ok.

    I guess you somehow missed the alpha part.

    Let this be a lesson for you.

    The real information is out on the internet so there is no excuse for your ignorance.

    Come back in a year when the game releases.

  • TalonsinTalonsin Member EpicPosts: 3,619

    I bought the game for $20.  I dont play it often as I know an Alpha is not a finished product but I do jump in once a week and mess with the crafting to see how it is coming along.  I would have to disagree with the OP as I think the game is coming along well for the size of the team involved and I have no worries about the game actually releasing. 

    I will be emailing the OP when the game releases just to let him know that he did over react quite a bit on this one

    Thanks to Repopulation I have finally awaken from beauty dream about poor indie companies requiring my support for finishing their products. Also lured with excellent reviews I have bought this title. As someone who rather do not paying attention to the graphics Repopulation is just too much for me. Environment reminds me more clunky version of early korean mmos from beginning of this millennium.
    So as I mentioned before, no more early access/ pre alpha/ betas and all that crap. Thank you Repopulation for waking me up
