    As Slapshot said, appears Caspian is putting his Psychology degree to great use, I truly admire his ability to get backers to thank him for doing sales such as this.

    Meanwhile Bethedsa offers $11.99 a month optional subs on game content  developed with company money and they are crucified and voted by MOP as a tie for worst business model in 2019.

    Really?  Gamers are just silly sometimes.

    It was "leaked" months back what the prices would be. Just all subject to change, line was used. It be more interesting to see how they plan to value each title. Will it be based on if the title itself is rich or based on the amount of players around it. 

    The NPCs buying titles is nothing short of flat out BS. They may as well not even have a deep sale, because SBS won't let any of the good titles make it that far, that's for sure. While also their flash sales idea is laughable. Changing every 20 minutes.. what.. 
    While only having the chance to appear once. That's crazy. 
    Yup.  All tactics to try and create pressure and a fear of missing out.  There was a chart I linked a few weeks back that showed how silly that concept is.

    Most people think Lootboxes are bad.  Pressure tactics like this are even worse IMHO.

    Looks like Settlers of Elyria has launched flawlessly.

    What’s wrong is obvious. It’s called continued incompetence.

    Still a smoking pile, no one has been able to purchase anything yet, SBS team has no clue why, issues aren't happening upon test server.

    That it's stepping down from all gaming related things

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

    Yet somehow, even given more evidence of the utter incompetence of the project, some people are going to give them more money for virtual land that doesn’t even exist in the virtual world yet (Thanks MassivelyOP).
    Crazy

    And so it continues:
    Caspian: Sorry folks. I got word that an account didn't correctly reflect the purchase. I don't think it's widespread, but I want to know why it happened. I've asked the web team to take down the portal for a second while we investigate.

    Longest second ever recorded in the history of time. Wonder how long this second will last, a week or two i reckon.

    Here is an update on Settlers of Elyria, so instead of the studios enjoying some much needed off time to spend with their families next week for the holidays,  they will be in the studios dealing with this.

    RESULTS ARE IN AND WE HAVE A "SURPRISE" WINNER!!!

    The correct answer was None of the Above!!!

    All they did this week was try to launch a sale/event and fail.
    No big news.
    No State of Elyria.
    Nothing except a failed attempt at a sale.

    But SbS failing to deliver is not a "surprise" to anyone who has been following along.

    Well Caspian did say he had a surprise for us...what he didnt say was that it's delaying Settlers of Elyria to next year and starting the discount at 3%...while he promised the discount would continue even if the website was down.

    Earlier in Discord Vye said the doors at the studio are closing now for the holidays, what does this mean for the State of Elyria document Caspian said would be coming out this week?
