    I have to say, I am not impressed by the graphics.
    Pantheon is light years ahead of them.
    Kinda disappointed actually.

    haha, don't think they have even started to think graphic. probably just working on basic mechanics for the game still.

    It will be 2022 before this is released. This the kind of testing you do when the game is in infancy.

    Considering the fact both games started development around the same time, CoE seems quite far behind compared to Pantheon, at least in the graphic department.
    Not judging the game, just the graphics.

    Not sure why game developers (in general) don't think it is high priority to hire at least 1 Talented Artist and a good 3d Designer.
    Just browse Devianart website, there are many talented kids who would do it for free just to add stuff on their CV.

    If you want to sell a game, graphics is the way to go, see Star Citizen, there is no game but hey...ships look cool AF and voila', 150 Millions in the bank.

    Graphics is the sex equivalent of gaming...they both sell.

    Why even bother wasting resources on unequip / equip animations? It's unnecessary and what they got so far looks terrible -- the guy just pats above his head and then the helmet appears.

    I think we knit picking here,it looks ok but other than seeing very little in the video,i got nothing from the video.
    What i "thought" we were getting was a video describing how armor/gear plays a role in the game,how it is equipped and unequipped be it live on the fly or OOC etc etc.

    I did notice a high quality or superb quality but i thought,what role does that play and if you had a slightly more worn piece of armor would there really be any difference at all in combat?
    So yeah the video told us nothing.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    Indeed.  Lots of people say welp gameplay over graphics but I think that's a very outdated way to see things. 

    In this day and age I want BOTH, great gameplay AND great graphics.

    Why must this game give me so many reasons to make fun of it?

    I don't give a crap about graphics, so that's not even something I'd discuss, despite the fact the game is still in alpha.

    As for the animations, don't have any problem with those either, as again, game is in alpha.

    Overall, the video does nothing to instill confidence for future investors but I'll chalk this up as inexperienced team doing their best.

    I think we need some more 'Pre-Alpha' stage definitions... I'd call this the 'Asset-Store-Engine-Tutorial' phase.

    Don't think there is much to see in this video.. except the fact that somebody is struggling with a sub-sub-sub system of a game that apparently isn't anywhere near ready atm....

    Why are they releasing this video now? Weren't they supposed to be working with pre-alpha Release 4 stuff by now, and inventory and equipment are from pre-alpha Release 2.

    Or has their schedule changed from January?

    Don’t be negative and just look at the past.  The past is irrelevant.  All that matters are what we promise, not what we deliver.   

    Always forward!!! Never back!!

    This is crowdfunded software development, damn it!  Schedules are merely for marketing purposes.

    Apparently if a moderator doesn't like a game, they choose not to delete posts that are obvious trolling posts or warn the poster(s). Several of these comments do not add anything to the content of the article. If I left some of these comments on a WoW article, I'd have my account suspended/blocked. I also think the type of continued toxicity oozing from this particular community (mmorpg.com) is a defining point to DEVs not to show what they're working on, ever.

    To the point of the CoE article in general, I don't necessarily think they deserve the amount of hate they're getting. Do I think the video deserves a standing ovation? Maybe not, based on your personal belief system towards what an acceptable of pre-alpha is. I do believe the DEVs have worked fairly transparently with the SBS community and in some cases to their own demise. The game's overall selling point from Kickstarter has not been fully unveiled and to some degree, may never be. Videos like this don't always inspire a crowd. The video itself did nothing for the community but show what they're working on in the cubical farm and only generated more questions than answers. To a certain extent, they were maybe better off saving this video until all the UI, inventory management, and equipment were more fleshed out and complete. Coupled with a voice over explaining the overall impact different types on armor have on the character, in explicit detail. What is the big so what to CoE armor? etc.

    So on one hand you agree that this video is not doing the game any favors.

    On the other you feel that people pointing this out are hateful trolls who are conspiring with the mmorpg.com mods against the game?

    Interesting.
