    @Kyleran Wasn't always the case. Was only at the start of the year, I thought this whole website was a troll website. Which is how most view it. But a few of the choices SBS has made, never sat well with me. Though it's really this forum that opened my eyes, everyone making critical, well thought out posts. Compared to the CoE forums, where it's mostly "you guys are awesome" on everything. 

    CoE forums/discord may not be an echo chamber on the level that star citizens forums are. But it's slowly getting there. I personally hate you can't see who upvotes/downvotes. Could be one group doing it, who knows. Someone last night comment in discord they didn't like their vote was meaningless, low IP person. They got jumped hard and fast. People made sure that person wouldn't talk again. Which even if people feel that person is wrong, they never handle a different view the right way. 

    Where here, having some random LOL at half my posts. It's some random I don't know, unlike if there I could get -10 from who knows. If I could see the names, could be the same thing "Oh a bunch of nobodies too gutless to comment."

    Onto the map voting. I'm honestly amazed it was delayed, then it still wasn't finished. There should be duchy lines added to be the map. Which looking now, still has not been added. I would have thought when they announce map voting is coming, it's 100% complete, by the time of that post. Seems the smarter way to do things. That way they never miss any deadline/date they set themselves and everyone is happy overall. Unless some bug was to happen at the last second, but it always seems like they just never set themselves enough time.
    I came here a while back, defended Coe and was a dick. 

    I admit it and I admit I was wrong. 

    I now come here for a breakdown of Coe from someone not just echoing how great it is.

    I hate the down voting system in coe forums and will up vote someone if I think they are unfairly downvoted

    Well this "community" event is coming along nicely. So far one server has had a very public drama event, all over the forums. Another server had an private drama event between two kingdoms. Everyone is thinking OCE is trolling all the other servers, when really we don't even care enough to vote. Some are waiting for duchy lines to be added in, with Caspian replying with "they aren't important". Well clearly they are to some if they keep asking for them. So we have no idea when they are coming, apart from "soon".

    The only plus from this whole event, at least the hatred towards kingdoms has been increased. So no doubt when launch happens. Enough wars will be starting from it.

    You think this is a mess? Wait until launch.
    There will be a lot more than Dutchy Lines missing.

    I do agree there. Just this whole event was pushed as "a positive community event to bring everyone active". The point it's been said over and over "no other game does this". Maybe cause people can't even handle themselves over something so small, more so when most of the maps all look the same anyway.

    For a community that keeps saying they are more mature than the other gaming communities. It's not even funny anymore, it's just sad. Not that every community is like this, but enough.

    The community has spent around $5M on the game.  The bulk of that was securing in game advantages. The highest donor is a guy literally named “GhettoMaster”. The very first chance given, the guy with the highest influence attempted to troll another player by using his spot to select the other guys name...

    One doesn’t need to be a Harbinger to see where this is going.  Just wait until the griefing includes In game PvP with looting and loss of territory and possessions people spent money on.  Just wait until folks use their accounts to just repeatedly kill other players and cause them to lose their life and thus cost them real life money with every death.

    This game is a griefers dream...and the griefing started years before launch...

    If the game is released none of the Kingdoms will remain as they currently are, I would imagine splintering happening all over the map and loads of "robber baron" Kingdoms forming.

    Then these "Kingdoms" will form massive alliances.
    This will then involve territory being carved up, and eventually no proper wars just lots of pointless skirmishes. 

    Just like nullsec in eve. 

    The only difference is there is no high sec

    4 hours left.  41% of ELIGIBLE players have voted.  Will there be a big vote in the next few hours or a big yawn?

    Lmao, how anyone can think a PvP game created by this amateur-hour team will be anything short of a complete and utter disaster...  It's mind-boggling.

    EDIT- this is also the first time I think I've ever seen a gamer hack a video game developer's product before the video game developer even has a video game to hack.  Impressive in the worst way.

    Should this game ever get to a stage they call "released" I am quite sure it will be like what Mortal Online had.

    You know with hackers taking both the game and the website hostage and the devs being unable to do anything about it.

    These are the same people who claim to be able to duplicate SpatialOS using open source software? And will be the ones responsible for preventing hackers and exploits from happening in-game?

    And they didn't have the foresight to keep their website's API secure from direct posts? These devs need to wake the Elyria up. 

    Their target audience is full-loot PvPers, the most vicious of all gamers! Expect the worst and then multiply that by 10.

    That would only be for deep ocean. So take the islands on the OCE maps, it's already been confirmed there is shallow water between them. 

    It's more for different continents. Which is fair enough there, great rewards have great risks.

    Thinking about all of the times back in Vanilla WOW when the game would dump everyone into the sea (killing us all) while taking a boat between continents this seems like an ill conceived idea.

    Agreed, but think about the premise here. The game is not even in Alpha, continues to put resources into ideas and then scrap them, and after years of production and countless sales has less than 20k paid backers as far as I can tell (probably far less if you account for folks with multiple accounts).

    I think additional continents are a pipe dream so I wouldn’t lose too much sleep on this.  Though, given their wasteful development history I will admit it wouldn’t shock me if they started working on pie in the sky stuff like this.  Especially if they can tie to to a store promotion.  Ship jpegs are pretty cheap to make...

    Stage two of voting started. It's a bit late. The biggest problem is that the maps used for voting no longer show which biome you're looking at. So you have to go back and reference the round 1 voting maps. I'm sure quite quickly members of the public will release the new maps with the biomes listed. But really this was something that SBS should have kept. Why would you remove information?
