    Perhaps you should consider this:

    There is no game.  No gameplay to review.  What he in essence is writing about is his experience as a person who Crowdfunded the game.  It’s a review of the journey.  It’s the difference between a travel journalist live blogging about his trip as it happens and someone else making a post about the destination based on pictures and info from other people.


    Hell, its not even that. Its the difference between a travel journalist live blogging about his trip as it happens and someone else making a post about a not yet created destination based on promises and concept pictures and info from other people whom might not be trustworthy at all.

    I loled pretty hard when I read this. That might be my next move! I'll be the first Instagram "world traveler" that books trips years in advance to resorts not yet built then covers the mundane day to day until I finally go to the airport. 
    You can even open a KSer campaign to get you started.

    Also, go ahead and check the crowdfunding buttons on these project websites.  "Add to cart," and "Buy" are the words used.  Remind me again: is "buying" something viewed the same as "investing" in something?  Where else do you take an investment and "add to cart"?
    You mean like on CoE's store page?


    They don't even make art for half of it! I mean...saving some cash I guess. Or do the finished items resemble silhouettes?

    I'm just waiting until Tim realizes that the COE poster basically plagiarized him.  It was a copy & paste of the entire article, instead of a link, with absolutely no credit to Tim (through 4 pages, anyway).  There are even several posters that seem to think the cut&paste member was the author of the original article.

    Let's see how well SBS disciplines its membership in the face of a legal violation.  Heck, even MMORPG.com might have a valid complaint.



    Man they didn't even link me? How do they know the poster didn't change my words? How do they know it even exists? I hope they had the insights to come here to confirm it was the legit version. 

    What I fail to understand is, if the game is doing so well behind that $1,000 paywall why wouldn't they flaunt it? If its that far along it would only serve to get them more subscribers? At the least they could allow a legit MMO site to do a preview which again gets them more money by proxy.

    I've backed enough of these to know the studios that have something decent behind that NDA flaunt it. They can barely contain themselves. They are proud, excited, and doing so makes them more fans and from those fans they get more dollars. The studios that don't give any insights, the ones that use the unknown as their crutch and hide behind the NDA do it for a reason. 
    I used to have access to the CoE locked forums before I sold my account last spring. I think there are (or at least were) two tiers of locked forums, which I had access to the lower priced one.

    I can't say what goes on in the VIP locked forums, but the one for barons and counts was useless. It was pretty much just fellow players talking to each other. No secret reveals or even dev interaction. Maybe every other week a dev or moderator would post a comment in a thread, but nothing worth while happened in there. It was so dead I stopped checking it after a while. 

    No one who paid to get in is going to admit that though. They just want you to think all this secret stuff is going on in there, so they don't feel foolish for buying in. 

    Perhaps things changed since last year, but I honestly doubt it.

    Always valid to get frustrated over the development of a game and constant delays. I supported 7 days in the early days and progress is sometimes slow. However, CoE seems to be making progress, maybe not as fast as their optimistic estimates just starting out. Everyone wants to think that their revolutionary idea will succeed quickly and that often isn't the case as logistics and real life come into play.

    That said. What these people are attempting is well worth supporting, especially if the features look appealing to you. Definitely not going to appeal to everyone but SoulBound has some of the most thoughtful design on mechanics I have ever seen and there are going to be bumps in the road but I am fully confident in their ability to get there.

    Welcome to the forums.

    Hopefully you'll consider visiting for some of the other content and just not in COE, as after all, looks like there's gonna be a bit of a wait.
