    To be fair,what did we recently or over the past two years see here on this site?

    Crowfall concept art,other games and recently Diablo4 concept art.

    All you need to do is drop your hook line n sinker in the right spot,waver that bait a little and SNAG...GOT ONE !!!.
    oh man i think i caught a good one this time,help me reel this in,it's a big one.......awww just a clump of seaweed.
    But I think the point (at least to me) is that this is not even original concept art.  It appears to be entirely made by cutting pictures of pictures found on the internet and pasting it into one file and presenting it.

    Jesus christ, they've actually photoshopped the image in and painted over it in certain areas to hide the fact that it isn't their drawing. That's something a person moderately skilled in photoshop can do in a day... That's just absolutely dire.

    I'll give them credit where credit is due though. They're reasonably okay at stealing stuff. Y'know, money, time, content... lol. "Soulbound Studios" your soul would have to be bound, cause they'd apparently try to steal that too.

    So, even their concept artwork isn't done by their art team.  My initial thought was that the house looked like something that Thomas Kincaid might do.  I was all ready to give them some credit at least for hiring a decent artist, but now, I don't want to commit to that kind of outlandish praise.  That would be the most cynical thing I would have ever posted about CoE.  Easily.

    What a way to start the year, BTW: pretty much after they close up Settlers of Elyria...the 4th year anniversary of Kickstarter will be happening in May 2020, so you can expect fresh stretch goals and fresh items in the cash shop. The studios has proven that is all they are capable of doing, which is selling non-existent content to the Ivory Tower whales.

    When are we going to see mood-piece articles from gaming sites like mmorpg.com...MassivelyOP outlining all of this shit Soulbound Studios have been pulling??

    I am sure next week Caspian will post an apology for this photoshopped mess, he will say he wasn't aware of this and he did not approve this, one thing Caspian is great at, saying it wasn't his fault.

    From MMORPG likely as they simply take every PR piece sent to them and publish it.  Massively might post it but if you read their articles on CoE they know what's going on and take every opportunity to let folks know it.  Their last headline was:

    Chronicles of Elyria is still working on the botched Settlers of Elyria event – and future events too

    And inside that article was a bunch of stuff to let you know that they "get" how farcical this project is.

    When I read their title it almost implies / applies "botched" to the future events as well.

    Probably a good bet.

    Well they apparently hired a new guy, Ash Kain, who’s not working on the game but instead is in charge of these web based events.  Who needs a game as long as we get web based sales events!

    Surely everyone is happy with progress updates that consist of finding pictures spread over the internet and photoshopping them over a picture of a forest.  Right?

    Millions of dollars and years of development just to produce a picture comprised of a bunch of plagiarized images mashed together.

    Progress!

    I wonder how far the willingness to ignore IP rights will go.  The music industry fights this kind of issue all the time; the photographers and artists are not as organized, but photos and artwork are artistic works worthy of the same kind of protection.  What is the value of the "appropriated" images used in these mash ups?  Just because it's on the internet doesn't mean it is free to take and use.  Companies *should* know better.

    Think about how bad this is.  Not only did they take internet pictures and paste them into a real forest, but ask yourself why?  The only reason I can see would be that they have nothing in game to show.  Think on that.  Nothing they could even use as a screenshot.

    i really think this is the worst thing they have done.  Worse than Links Of Elyria.  Worse than massive delays and bugs to DSS.  Worse than the recently failed Settlers sale.   Because those were all external to the game.   IMO this is showing they have nothing inside...so they have to take internet photos and photoshop them onto a real forest even though what they show goes against what Kypiq lore says.

    Just stunning.

    I agree with everything you said, for me personally the worst thing they have done is parting with SpatialOS. I know many people will not agree with me but for me that was a turning point for this project and made me see that this will never come to fruition. I originally pledged during their KS because i was very excited they were working with Improbable and the SpatialOS tech.

    This current Photoshop fiasco is a drop in the bucket, this is nothing. Wait until they actually release something for the community to test, then the real storm will happen.

    All will be good. A mood piece is probably a lot like a mood board which literally is:

    an arrangement of images, materials, pieces of text, etc. intended to evoke or project a particular style or concept.

    So, its totally okay, nothing to see  o:)

    I have to share everybody else’s frustrations here. I too hate seeing what concepts they created months, possibly a year or two, ago.

    I want to start seeing last weeks concept art, last weeks milestones and last months achievements.

    How about we just start seeing actual in game progress?  or better yet... lets get players in there.  Significant numbers not just the 20 Ivory Tower loyalists.

    Patience my friend. It’s only been 2 or 3 years. Maybe take 1 year away after they got screwed by SpatialOS. MMOs take longer than 1 or 2 years.

    I didn't set the timeline for a 2017 release.  I didn't set the revised timeline for a 2019 release. I also did not claim to have replicated almost all of SpatialOS back when they announced they were dropping it.  So while your points may have merit, they need to be made to the person responsible for those things.  Not me.

    You can't be serious here? Are you trolling or something? The entire story of what? Who are you kidding? Caspian himself said all of this, and when we said it's not possible back then he laughed at us and said watch us be proven wrong. Fast forward to now and what do they have to show? Nothing.

    Issue reported several months ago AND they even said they are aware of it, yet nothing is done to correct this. If they can't even update their website, what makes you think they can make a game of this scope?

    Yet this stolen picture. Was basically the same as a concept art they shared around KS. Just of course looking realistic. 
    That aside, I'm starting to think some backers are shilling. It's really the only thing that makes sense. You can spot them out easily as well. Some loyal backers, even now don't say anything. Others, no matter what they do, it's the same response. "oh this is awesome". I don't believe people can be that brain dead.

    That is what happens when ppl invest so much into a project, not just money but spending hours daily, some for 5+ years...it's hard to admit to reality, that said we can't put all the blame on oblivious people, Caspian after all has a degree in Psychology and he has shown skill in keeping people as his puppets.
