This will sound cold, but facts are facts,
Developers are lazy, incompetent and refuse to use modern graphic and coding tools available for the year 2020, their stuck in 1999 and feel compelled to reinvent everything. I talk about lazy, it's deeper than that, no passion, they seem to refuse to work for free. A huge project such as this, you would think they would have at least 25% done before they announced the project and sought backers. No pay me first !
Re inventing everything puts a huge delay in production because its not going smoothly as they hoped.
It shows too,
Each "segment of game play" is highly censored, choreographed and tailored as a stand alone program. Proof being their are not many of them. Proof being were all in speculation on everything.
I follow CohhCarnage and many of his streaming game plays. I feel I know him well and have a lot of respect. He's invited to all Pantheon streaming game plays, yet he has a look of disappointment each time as he is going along with the mess he is asked to overlook. I don't think he really backs this game, however that's only my opinion.
Where are towns and villages, where is that level one player, where is that solo player gathering materials to craft ?
A family member ask the kidnapper, show me proof of life ?...... Where is it for Pantheon ?...... 6 years ?
