    You must know something we don't know @BillMurphy!

    We're still in Early Access pre-alpha. Release #12 drops in March (tentatively), which is when we are adding questing/harvesting/crafting in their first iterations (tenatively), and it's about the same time we'll be turning off our pre-order store and transitioning to alpha (tentatively), but we're a long way from a released product. Our official release date is still "TBA"

    Though thanks for the wishful thinking and mention :) 
    LOL, I was actually reading the website and saw the part about:


    WHEN WILL SAGA OF LUCIMIA BE AVAILABLE?



    MMORPGs typically take between 6 – 8 years to develop.

    The project started as an idea in early 2014. Our programming began in earnest in mid-2015, with our Early Access kicking off September of 2015.

    We have the benefit of being self-published, which means we aren’t working against any timeline other than our own. We’ll let you know when we have an estimated window of launch.



    AKA, someone didn't do their research! *eyes @BillMurphy *
    He got all overexcited again!

    Looking forward to Torchlight and remaining curious about Anthem. The rest of these, either won't make it to the West in 2019 or are PvP build/destroy games (call it sandbox all you want, destroying/defending what others/you have built is the basic gameplay).

    Really only thing here for me would be A:IR. High chance it will be a cash grab/bomb at launch but one can hope it wont be. Really need something to no life!
    Heard rumor that it will be tab target (which I prefer) and classes wont have gender locking (which drives me up the wall. IDC if you want to play as a female character that's up to you, got nothing against it. However give me the option to play X class as male)

    The black desert team makes me weary but blue hole has been pretty good with there cash shop.

    None of those titles apeal to me at all. The only game I'm looking forward to so far for 2019 is a SP story driven game on the Play Station. I have pretty much given up on MMO's that don't focus on open world PVP and come from the west.

    Oh, I'll be on Phoenix for sure. I'll probably check out CU and SoL as well, IF they launch this year.



    We won't be launching this year. You'll know when we are ready, as we'll have an official press release and statement from sagaoflucimia.com and our associated social media/newsletter/etc.
    No worries. At this point, I think most of us are used to waiting.
    True, along with the fact SoL never solicited funds using blatantly false pretext such as was done by almost every other crowd funded / indie developer out there.

    Backed CU. Hope it turns out well.

    Lost Ark looks like a fun arpg and I'll definitely try it.

    I'll wait and see on Crowfall. Otherwise, looking forward to more on Pantheon. And yeah, were is Star Citizen? Still 2020 or beyond?

    Most of the games like Crowfall and Camelot Unchained I would dearly love to play but the combat is something I am unable to do well in. I don't mind the PvP since that is what those games are about but the fast action combat in Crowfall made me crestfallen as it excludes me definitely. Nobody will want a player like me in their group even to carry their ammo or boots.

    Bless Unleashed? OK, I am sure a year is long enough for people to forget that fiasco, being quite serious as gamers seem to have the memories of a goldfish when it comes to buying games.

    Yes at this point Crowfall is way too complex for a new gamer. I am starting to get concerned with the lack of things to do. At this point all they have is grinding resources and pvp (which I love PvP). Just worried about the longevity of the game.



    I've been looking for look forward to Crowfall for a long time now, but recently got worried. Was playing in a current MMO a D a discussion broke out about it that was focused on how Pay 2 Win it was. Can you tell me if this is accurate or hopefully overblown?
    Crowfall has never been pay to win, but some people claimed it was for a couple reasons. First, VIP subscriptions provided more passive training than non-VIP. This extra training provided more options to the player, but not more power, as you couldn't simply train twice in the same thing. You had to choose different races and classes. You couldn't even train multiple crafting professions at the same time, instead having to use the second training for exploration or combat. A VIP and a non-VIP playing the same race and class, and both training in combat, would be 100% equal in terms of power, assuming they both started training at the same time. 

    Whether or not this was P2W is all moot now anyway, as they have changed skill training with the introduction of talents. Both VIP and non-VIP train the exact same number of skills now. There is no difference at all.

    The second reason was because Artcraft sold stuff like castles and other things that can be used in Eternal Kingdoms. Eternal Kingdoms are glorified housing. Players can set up markets in their EKs, but they can also set up vendors in campaigns now, and none of the buildings/parcels that can be bought in the store can be used in campaigns. EKs will depend on exports from campaigns as the resources needed to craft the things you will sell are only available in campaigns. Buying a bunch of parcels and buildings for your EK doesn't even give an advantage in terms of EK markets, as you still need to craft the stalls and vendors and you need to craft all the things that will be sold on those vendors. It's too much for one person to do by themselves. The biggest, most successful EK markets will be groups of people working together, and everything that can be purchased can also be crafted in game. Any group wanting to have an EK market can pool their parcels/buildings together and upgrade them via crafting. 

    Artcraft changed what they were selling in the store a year ago. They used to sell castles for $8,000. The castles were there for guilds to buy and not really intended for individuals. And again, they gave zero competitive advantage as they can't be used in campaigns where the actual PvP competition happens. A year ago, they stopped selling anything that cost more than $200. Now the only things you can buy are skins, game packages, guild kits, and some houses and parcels. All of these items, except for the skins, can only be used in EKs. The skins are for mounts, but you have to craft the mount first. 

    So, anyone telling you that CF is P2W is uninformed. They probably watched a certain video by a certain player who used to be very into Crowfall, but decided that it was heading in the wrong direction and used his youtube platform to misinform a bunch of people.

    We're waiting right alongside everyone. Nothing on the market that any of us really want to play MMORPG-wise, although there are a TON of great console games to feed the gaming need (this year was phenomenal with God of War, RDR2, Spider Man, I'm currently working my way through AC: Odyssey, and my brother and I are waiting patiently for Anthem to drop as we happily pre-ordered and are looking forward to February). 

    The only titles that our team are actively interested in are Star Citizen/Squadron 42, and Pantheon. And of course, our own game. Beyond that, we're dabbling from time to time in older titles. LOTRO Legendary presently, and we're set to head into WOW Classic this summer with our community. 

    Crowfall, CU, AoC and others are great titles in their own right, to be sure, but they feature PvP so aren't really on our list of "games we want to play".

    Didn't you get the memo? Our Early Access is only there as a scam to fund our private island purchases, and we're going to eke it out for another few years until we pull the rug out from under everyone and run off with everyone's money.

    There's enough diversity here that something will probably catch my fancy upon release, but I have to admit, nothing excites me in the way such impending releases used to. Part of it is the tired old reliance on formulaic themes. Yet another survival game, and for god's sakes, why so many PvP titles is beyond me. non-consensual PvP is so niche. None of the most successful MMOs (Wow, ESO, FFXIV) require you to submit to non-consensual PvP. There's a reason for that.

    If all those games don't offer something that might appeal, then I think there are many ppl who don't want to find something. (At least in the fantasy sphere). This list has a bit of everything. Sandox to theme to survival. It has AAA and upstarts. The list goes on.

    I recommend ppl stop looking for the perfect game (which doesn't exist) and find some enjoyment in something slightly less than perfect.

    Do not think it is about that as much as most on the list will not release in 2019 and the ones that might in the west are not overly appealing or to little is known to be excited.  There are a couple of good possible games on the list but they are likely a bit off in release such as A:IR or Lost Ark here.

    New World I still think to little is known.  CU is in development hell with news that trickles out.  Crowfall is niche at best.  SoL will not hit this year and is very niche for the nostalgia crowd.  Bless Unleashed...yeah wonder how that will pan out.

    So not about looking for the perfect game as much as the list has some challenges.

    A "SLEEPER" is about how i would sum it up if any game comes out really good,i defintitley am not seeing it right now.

    I am not trying to knock others opinions but when i see Spiderman as a potential GOTY or even top 20,i am thinking,that was a REALLY bad year for games.Then i look at the design,fly around through the trees,then start with ridiculous ADD type combat and i look over at Anthem, i see the exact same thing.

    It seems there ar VERY few gimmicks going around the entire industry,a Hero,flying,survival,Esport,cash shops,crowd funding,heavy marketing,loot boxes,hand holding markers, i think about raps up game design in this era.

    perhaps there is an argument that most creative ideas have already been thought of so now it is a long period of rinse and repeat.I say no way in hell,i personally could think of TONS of ideas in almost every game i see come out and i just one person,i feel devs are not even trying to give us a good effort,just bare bones get it out for sale.

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