How do you feel about the next sales "event" involving recruiting new pledges?

    @Amathe

        - I too do not enjoy super greasy fried chicken. And all this talk of fried chicken has me getting a bit of a craving. Any suggestions?

    Your nearest Thai restaurant, preferably one that delivers. :)

    Shouldn't eat KFC anyway they used to (and I'm assuming still do) inject the chicken with all sorts of stuff

    Too funny.  Even their Event/Sale gets delayed.  It was supposed to be launching this week, now they are shooting for next week.

    Seriously, this is emblematic of their constant problems.  They need to over complicate everything.  Now all these dev resources are spent making complex systems for “spreading plague” and curing it...  website functionality, classes, skills, tiers.... all instead of making the actual damn game.  Why?

    IMHO this is just another reason why backers haven’t even been in Vox Elyria yet (which itself it’s a stupid waste of resources). It’s bordering on obscene now.

    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.

    I suspect they need a new influx of funds to keep the lights on. In which case... an event to drive sales isn't a bad thing for them to focus on. I also don't think this game is ever going to be remotely on schedule.

    My SWTOR referral link for those wanting to give the game a try. (Newbies get a welcome package while returning players get a few account upgrades to help with their preferred status.)

    <snort><giggle> What? Oh that's a good one!
    yeah I don't see this being comparable in time investment to what the OP is asking.

    Anyway, I don't think this is a terrible idea or use of time.

    I actually think it's an interesting way to keep people involved and recruit new players.  It's the bone which people have been wanting for. It's not KoE of Vox Elyria but it's something. 

    That said, I was disappointed to see that you could buy items from the store to aid you.  I wish everything didn't lead back to the store.

    I agree but at least this time what you can buy doesn't seem stupid

    yeah, well... as usual, the actual game is MIA. Let's see how this plays out in the long run.

    The cash shop is the game.

    I stopped buying early access after swtor came out. It isn't worth it. Everyone else should stop too. Maybe the game companies will stop being so bloody greedy.

    You should visit the "Sale/Event" at the link in the OP here and let me know what you think: https://forums.mmorpg.com/discussion/475293/new-sale-event-searing-plague-is-now-live#latest

    At some point in time, the realization that the business has failed needs to set in.  Just because a group of people have an idea and try to implement it doesn't mean they will succeed.  Congratulations!  They tried.  But this project has failed.  There's no shame in that.  About 90 to 95 percent of all new restaurants fail.  Around 50% of all new businesses close within the first 5 years.  That they've kept the door open for as long as they have (without a tangible product) is an accomplishment.

    Time to accept it and move onto something else.



    Logic, my dear, merely enables one to be wrong with great authority.
