Apparently they are going to bed and the website and store will be down again until at least tomorrow. Dev had the time to remind people that being critical of their utter inability to hit their 1st post kickstarter deliverable with 3 delays and then a website meltdown really doesn't help anything.
" we recognize this process has gone on longer than we'd have liked, and we really appreciate all those who recognize that being critical of us, or the fact we don't have dedicated web developers yet, really doesn't help anything. So thanks again for your patience."
As with all Kickstarters it comes down to the company's ability to deliver on what they promise and in the time frame they promise it. In no way, shape or form can this fiasco give anyone confidence in their ability to deliver. So far they had one deliverable post kickstarter and they have utterly failed even after multiple delays.
Edited to add this "important" information from poster @Drakenhoff which just seems like a list of excuses to me but in the interest of "fairness" here it is:
But if you actually explained the whole topic of conversation people would know.
1) one remote developer had a power outage which caused issues. 2) unforseen errors happened in the backend.. Do projects have unforseen issues. ... yes 3) a team members family member was in hospital which again caused issues. 4) caspian had been up 20+ hours trying to fix issues when he made that statement.

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 :-)

My ignore list finally has one occupant after 12 years. I am the strongest supporter of free speech on here, but free speech does not mean forced listening. Have fun my friend. Hope you find a new stalking target.
