Star Vault: Mortal Online Steam Launch - update

See the news

We now have sufficient information regarding the number of players, cash flow and 
estimated earnings to give a first preliminary assessment of the outcome 
of the Steam launch. 

As the players waiting to pay when they play for free up to a 
certain level, it is a natural lag before new players 
reason to subscribe. There is also a lag of about one month 
before income becomes available to us. Therefore, we have been 
careful not to go out with a premature statement about Steam. 

We have, as mentioned earlier, had a lot of pressure on the game server where 
very many players have wanted to try out Mortal Online. That was the 
big goal with Steam, to be able to reach considerably more players 
to get interested to find our game. The first "rush" has 
now subsided and we focus on having a stable growth of paying 
customers. We got a greater pressure than expected, which is positive. 
This caused some stress problems on the game server but as we got 
control over shortly after release. 

It has been a good increase in donations and subscribers in September and October. 
Because after the trailer shown above is Steamreleasens impact on the Q3 report marginal. 

As it is natural that the first "rush" adds the card after a 
Steam Launch we will follow this development closely and 
analyze the areas that players are most interested that we 
should keep up a keen interest in game as well as a recurring 
interest to the players.

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 :-)

    So basically they said nothing of significance other than just some vague speculations and excuses..

    "We now have sufficient information regarding the number of players, cash flow and 
    estimated earnings to give a first preliminary assessment of the outcome 
    of the Steam launch. "

    But where is the assessment of the steam launch?  Where is the estimated earnings?  WTF is the purpose of this announcement?

    I've been playing this game on and off for the past few days, it's not bad, though if Darkfall didn't mess up their free weekend for me, I'd probably be subscribed there instead of MO lol.
