What happened to the hype?

Just wondering what happened to this game.  It had a lot of hype and now don't hear anything about it.
Are you onto something or just on something?

    Well for some on this site you can add those to their following burnout list:

    Was destined to fail as an open world PvP game anyway. They should have focused on the 'survival' game aspects and figured out ways to have Open world, voluntary and safe zones.

    Just another example of developers being totally disconnected from the player base. When they offer PvE option and see people make servers and see the populations on those servers and theyre TOTALLY populated on the strict PvE servers that should tell them something. Even servers with 'happy hour'; or whatever it was called when there was no penalty for open PvP on the PvE servers those servers were very lightly populated and most players didnt log on during the fight time, only those that jumped from server to server who are the griefer no life types who infest PvP games in general.

    Maybe the best engine and environmental interaction of any game. Where you can dig holes and build mountains if you want to (they could have improved on some of that as well) and a good weather and planting system. BUilding was a little disappointing but placement was free form.

    Built as a PvE/RP/PvP hybrid it COULD  have been a game changer, but the hard line stance of the developer(s) to refuse any talk of PvE or 'safe' spaces it killed it for a lot of players.

    Also as with all these types of game there is no content, other than advancing, and once advancing has ended then all that is left is player interaction which in most cases does in fact involve PvP. But not with a totally griefer set up like this one has.

    It's still ongoing and still going to be the greatest :) 

    The fall-off is real though. Hex was one that I backed and never even played because I was excited when I backed it and then just forgot it existed. Grim Dawn is one that I HAD forgotten about completely and then remembered only because people said it was the best ARPG ever. Fallout, I played in Beta extensively and didn't play at all on release. So, yeah, I think that hype does drop off over time. It's why I feel like you need to have SOMETHING when you come to the table. You've got to be able to hit a 1-2 year target. So your systems really need to be almost "there" before a Kickstarter. Unless you're Star Citizen, but there's always one of those in every crowd.

    This one has the potential to be the best medieval mmo ever. Lets see. Its now up to server code. Can it take thousands at once?

    No fate but what we make, so make me a ham sandwich please.

    I don't really remember there being a ton of hype.  It was a hyper realistic wood chopping sim.  With no PVE to speak of really.  Just find a ton of like minded people to bang on rocks and trees, build something then wait for someone to come attack you.

    You have to make an amazing building crafting game if that's the basis of your gameplay.  or having amazing PvP and siege mechanics.  As it stands today its a pretty dry experience.  I cant imagine the MMO version being much different.

    same question I have regarding Dual Universe.

    Seems like 'meh whatever, just give me a game where I do nothing other than kill mobs and let me complain about it' build ships? meh who cares

    Please do not respond to me, even if I ask you a question, its rhetorical.

    Please do not respond to me
