So much of this game looks so interesting but..

the isometric view..bleh. Not sure I can handle that. I'm sure some like that view but I just never have liked it. It feels so disassociated from your character and limiting (especially for an MMO). Game still looks interesting though so maybe I'll try it anyway.

    It's a Battle Royale,how can it possibly look interesting?Grab a weapon pew pew each other,that's it,that is 99% what players will be doing.
    The entire scope of battle Royale games is a very generic one,you can change the skin but it is still a very generic/bland game.

    Fortnite tried to add one new layer of design ideas,sure it is definitely different but imo looks silly and NOT what i want to play when comes to serious pvp action.

    They can claim "sandbox" "open world" it is still players pvping each other with mostly boring pew pew weapons.

    Wait wut? BR? Where did you get that it's a BR game? Admittedly, I have only just found it so don't know much about it but I didn't see anything about BR in the kickstarter video.

    It's not even close to a BR game. Wizardry must be having a flashback or something.

    When I checked it out there was no mention of Battle Royale . Think maybe someone's got the wrong game here. AFAIK it's an arpg loot based affair.

    I am looking forward to the game. I hope they get funded in time and make a strong push

    I'm pretty sure I didn't pledge €150 on kickstarter for an isometric sandbox BR rofl

    No, what I put money down for was a mmoarpg, a mmorpg with moba style combat. Horizontal character progression.

    I know I can enjoy the isometric view. Had it in Albion and enjoyed it very much. That game was a grindfest though, with several bad game designs on top. But the combat was cool.

    Every time I read that guys posts, I feel like I'm getting a live look at what senility online looks like.

    I hope you are talking about Wizardry and not me because when I read his post about BR I literally started wondering if I was going senile or something and had just totally misunderstood the game I just read about. Glad to find out it wasn't me losing my marbles.

    Um yeah....my home world is going to be something like 75% no PVP allowed, so not exactly a BR.  :p

    Welcome to the boards! Well done Frenchie I have not seen this guy before. :)

    I have the same issues as OP about isometric view, but lets see how it goes.

    I care less and about 'Views' and 'graphics' and more about Content, Gameplay, and community. To me Runescape(osrs)  as an (isometric) was one of the best mmos due to content/gameplay.

    I'm not really a fan of the isometric view but some games have managed to make it work. Just give it a chance ;)

    It's got most of the warning flags right in its banner ad on this site.  "Sandbox, MMORPG, Kickstarter."  When are we going to learn?

    Only warning flag out of those is the Kickstarter and it's a risk we have to take. There are no big name publishers currently working on MMORPGs so indie devs are our only source. Kickstarter is still better than nothing.

    Is it really?  Or is it just a false hope that just delays facing reality?

    No, WE don't have to take that risk. YOU choose to take it and YOU think Kickstarter is better than nothing.

    I apologize for my poor choice of words. Anyway, I choose to support indie developers through KS rather than let the genre slowly die or stagnate in WoW clones
  • benseinebenseine Member UncommonPosts: 293
    I've had really fun in 3 mmorps in the past. In all the others I just looked around if I could find the same enjoyement, and I quit after the initial month or so (or a bit longer if the ppl hanging around on TS where fun). I would gladly pay 50 €/$ a month for that enjoyement again in a mmorpg, but none of the current games really give that atm. So my 50 bucks a month stay in my pocket atm. Now I don't mind putting that 50 bucks a month or so in a crowdfunding campaign once in a while. It's money I can miss for a hobby I can't really do atm because there are no good mmorpgs atm in my opinion.
  • NeedlehawkeNeedlehawke Member UncommonPosts: 12
    I've never supported a KS before, and I decided to finally take the plunge on this one for several reasons.
    1. The devs sound like they are aiming for reasonable goals and aren't trying to do everything from scratch. They are obviously trying to be very disciplined and not allow scope creep to take over.
    2. I have been dying for a Sandbox MMO that really tries to appeal to PVE players. I got excited about Ashes of Creation at first, until I realized that the PVE in that game was just an excuse to PVP. Right now, the devs in this game are the only ones I know of who seem to really understand PVE players and don't insist that they HAVE to put up with being attacked.
    Those 2 points were plenty for me.

    I’m not pledging for two reasons:

    1. 59 hours to go and still not funded. If they’re having that much trouble...well...
    2. 110K is pocket change and I don’t see any information about how they’ll continue to fund the development to release. Business plan seems woefully non-existent. 

    I would love love to see a game like this but there are just too many red flags for me to think it will ever release.
