CoE wins coveted "MMO with the Stormiest Future" award from Massively

https://massivelyop.com/2018/12/22/massively-ops-2018-awards-stormiest-future/

Some highlights:
Chris Neal: "I am hard-pressed to think of a developing game that spends more time talking about almost nothing than Chronicles of Elyria. "
Elliot Lefebvre: "So let’s give the nod to Chronicles of Elyria, which just… yeah, I honestly don’t see this coming out well. Heck, I don’t see this coming out, period."
Brianna Royce: "Taking a look at the field of incoming games, I find Elyria is the one I’m most worried about"
Andrew Ross: "Like SC, they’re selling items for a game that doesn’t exist yet"



They also posted a followup about the less than exciting progress plan:

Looks like more and more industry people are starting to see where this is heading.

    There's so little of interest these days going on in COE it's not even worth slagging on anymore.

    To the contrary... I think it’s just the eye of the storm over us.  It’s about to get quite stormy again.

    Only issue I have with this is the low amount of actual votes.

    526 votes in total is piss poor in anyone's books. Although they could all be industry experts I don't really care anymore...

    The article mentions the 2018 End of Year CoE report.   Any info on that, @Slapshot1188?

  • GeezerGamerGeezerGamer Member EpicPosts: 8,622
    COE? Who cares these days. It's like it was mentioned a couple years ago. This game will take so long, that if somehow it miraculously does release, it will be so far off, it will already be outdated and have no interest.

    Know what though,he could have released it the same way as the rest  by building up some great videos and marketing hype,likely tons would have bought in.
    The scummy devs/publishers,they just DO IT,they don't ask us or refer to anyone else,they just release it and call it Early access and make a lot of money from nothing.

    This guy sort of half assed it,he only went half in,so everyone was unsure,skeptical and so never panned out.

    Pretty sad really when the best business plan is to outright just lie  and scam everyone,worry about the bad press while your counting your millions.

    You know hes sitting with the wife,having a coffee or cappuccino lmao,oh hun you know there is a lot of bad press out on your game,people seem really mad.Yes dear,now can you help me with all this money,i have nowhere left to put it all.

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

    You expect me to read their propaganda myself?  You're not supporting my laziness.  Besides, I don't know if I have the right shots.

    OK I will summarize:

    "We sold stuff"
    "We showed concept art of armor"
    "We sold stuff"
    "Here are interviews with people who invested a LOT of time/money"
    "We sold stuff"
    "Soon we will tell you how one of our 'adventures' in development went"

    Riders on the storm
    Into this house we're born
    Into this world we're thrown
    Like a dog without a bone
    An actor out alone
    Riders on the storm

    What a fit.

    I think this song excerpt fits even better

    "And in the naked light I saw
    Ten thousand people, maybe more
    People talking without speaking
    People hearing without listening
    People writing songs that voices never share No one dared
    Disturb the sound of silence.

    "Fools" said I, "You do not know
    Silence like a cancer grows
    Hear my words that I might teach you
    Take my arms that I might reach you"
    But my words like silent raindrops fell
    And echoed in the wells of silence

    And the people bowed and prayed
    To the neon god they made
    And the sign flashed out its warning
    In the words that it was forming

    And the sign said, "The words of the prophets
    Are written on the subway walls
    And tenement halls"
    And whispered in the sounds of silence"

    I'm not entirely sure what the purchase options are tbh, but he bought into the kickstarter for him, his two nephews and a friend - and when I started reading about the game I was a tad shocked :(.

    But there are many. You can play them entirely solo, and even offline. Also, you are wrong by default.
