    Exactly the info I've been waiting for proof of. It's moving forward and is group centric. Now, I'm ready to pledge. Awesome. Excited.

    All those other games pandering around EARLY access is bull crap.That is nothing more than one of the many new age marketing ideas devs are coming up with to sell people crap games.
    My point is that this is actually a REAL,factual early version of the game,not some fake claim that it is.Those other games are claiming early development, but never see but a 1% improvement months or years later,they are actually selling you the official game state but just using the early development gimmick to avoid criticism.

    I fully suspect this game to be around a Vanguard state of game play,weather you like that or not is not for me to say as everyone is entitled to their opinion on game play.I happen to like the direction of this game,weather it pans out in the end,only time will tell.

    What you say is true for many games but also not true for many early access games, you are generalizing.  Ark: Survival Evolved is not "bull crap" for example, Ark makes way more progress than just 1% improvements every week, recently they added split-screen to the xbox version as well.  Anyone who follows it knows what I am talking about.

    When you charge for a game and do not wipe... the game is launched.  I don't care if devs call it Early Access, Early Enrollment, or any other wordsmithing.

    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 :-)

    Ark and many other games doesnt charge you to buy the game again when they finish its development.  I dont see whats wrong with having the freedom to buy the game in its early development especially if its just a one time fee and you like the game.  Its up to the buyer to do his research if the game is legit that its making progress.  I wonder how many of you would turn your back on your own words if they announced a early access for pantheon.

    I'm really impressed at how functional and playable it already seems to be, looks great - I can't wait 'til I get to play it myself.

    I'm hoping it'll be able to fill the void in my life left by Vanguard.

    The combat pace works for me, but I hope CC plays a larger role even in regular hunting and other situational spells / skills.  Cast times seemed a bit long on the wizard, mobs were well below 50% health by the time he got most of them off.

    I am waiting to see the advanced AI they talk about on their website. I saw none of that in the Stream. (I did not really expect to yet it is still so early, I am just curious how it will be) I am also curious how they will handle the non-instanced housing.

    The game looks good on paper, hope they can  pull it off.  I liked what I saw in the video overall, looks playable in its current state. Just needs some polishing.

    Redsalt... the other salt.

    Not sure this part - "and do not wipe" - is relevant to a launched game.

    The point is that you can call a game whatever you want.  If you are charging for it, and there is no wipe, then the game is launched.

    Why is the camera bouncing up and down like that in first person? Before anybody says anything too crazy, I want you to walk in straight line and recreate what you saw in this video.

    Is group mob grinding going to be a significant element in this game? (dont know anything about this game, just saw the guys grinding in the video...)

    It is something I am missing in modern mmos. Maybe it disappeared because players no longer want to camp spots with friends for hours to get a few % from the next level.

    it's not even in pre-alpha mode, So likely there will be changes to things like that. Also the skills of a developer isnt really something we can criticize here. I mean, sure you can criticize his skills but they dont relate to how the game is being made/built.

    "do not wipe" is the most important part.  Early access, pre-alpha buy-ins and all of that really aren't a problem if you wipe the game once it "officially" launches.  In those cases it's basically people paying to beta test.

    But, when you have people playing for months and don't wipe progress, then nothing really changes when they make their "official" launch.  They've been getting paid to play, people have been playing and progressing for months, what's the difference in this and a real launch?  The only difference is a wall of excuses to hide behind.

    I like the look of the world and it's about damn time we are getting to a point where ingame-worlds actually look and feel like "worlds".

    Yeah, people lost interest in the experience grind.  Laughably enough, they just replaced the exp. grinds with reputation/faction grinds and gold/token grinds.

    I hope we can configure it in the settings.

    Appreciate your explanation.

    This is the same Brad from Vanguard?  Man i loved Vanguard so much. I really hope this has better systems in place. That was the bane of that game. I can do group centric work no problem but please let this handle well. I really don't want to get into another MMO, but Vanguard was way to good to pass up the chance of a rightful successor to that or EQ.

    Yep. Same guy behind EQ and Vanguard

    Dude, Senadin... not even sure where you are coming from.  At what point did he criticize the developer's skills?  Are you imagining this?  

    Anyway, I do agree with Vorthanion on the cast times.  However, being that it's pre pre alpha... I'm sure they have not optimized that quite yet.  Different spells will have different cast times.  Not to worried about this.

    Regarding CC.. I believe this will play a huge role in this game.  It's always been a huge part of EQ combat and looks to be a big part of this game as well based on the video.  Really looking forward to getting back to that kind of gameplay in a new mmo.

    I agree. The best part of the stream, to me, was they were just playing. Not showcasing this or that so much as just running around the world and working together. Brad had to remind the guy streaming to show his skills and the merchant. They have a build right now that is playable. That is more than most developers claiming to be making an mmo indi or not can say. I was impressed.
    And.. this is "pre-pre-Alpha". They're a long way from even seeing the home stretch yet. Most of the races/classes aren't even in, yet.

    To the concerns about the look of things, or animations, etc... They discuss that at one point of the video, where they explain that they're focusing on gameplay and getting everything else right with the game, and that you don't need fancy graphics and such to achieve that. The graphics, animations and such will be polished and kicked up to its final look/form after everything else is nailed down. They seem very adamant in maintaining that approach, and it's a smart way to go.

    That said, there are still some really nice looking environments in that game already. The ruins area looks great. I wouldn't be able to resist wanting to explore that if I saw it, that much I know for sure lol. I probably will, once I get over there. I'm gonna be an Elf, so I'll be off exploring elsewhere for a while.

    What I loved about it was watching them do their thing, and thinking "Yes, this is what I remember from playing old-school MMOs. This is what it was like to get together with a group of people and just go out adventuring, and all the random things that could happen along the way. It wasn't all about "how many levels can I get, and how quickly". It was about hanging out with (usually) cool people, and having fun, while trying not to die".

    It also reminded me of how much I've missed it.
