    AFAIK Mark does refunds in batches so the totals on the website probably went down because he processed a batch of refunds not because he reacted to one particular backer demanding a refund.
    That *generally* is what happens.

    But I don't think that's what happened in this specific case - based on the hostility in the initial post asking for the refund, and Mark's reply, and the account being closed around the same time the ticker went down.  Edit: also, I have yet to see an account disabled before the refund has been issued.

    I think Mark wanted to make this a solved problem ASAP, and did so.
    Any idea how much the funding ticker went down? Was mentioned as a significant amount, that could be $2K (20 people at $100 each) or some amount more. (Or less)


    It was about $2,000, maybe a bit more?

     I'd love to see some facts that corroborate this theory of yours.  This is probably 1 of maybe 4 crowdfunded projects that will actually come out with some form of finished product remotely in line with the original pitch.  Whether it's fun/successful will be a different story entirely though.

    What a pretentious baby.  I'm guessing they are better off without them.

    I can definitely understand people being frustrated after 3+ years of delays to the original schedule (even if they have legitimate reasons for the delays). 

    But demanding that alpha testing meet this person's schedule, when that isn't practical or useful for the team, is way too demanding.

    This game did not appear nearly ready for a beta test last I checked so I'll be interested to see how the impressions from beta are. I'm also curious to see if the funding they received will help accelerate development or not. Any new beta testers have thoughts on their progress?

    That's true in that Mark Jacobs is more likely to follow a traditional development model but I would be more likely to estimate the release in 2019 or 2020.

    Do not invest in this game.  Yesterday they sent out an email saying a beta test was going to start in two hours and will only be two hours.  This is only the third beta1 test I have had an email about.  What grinds my gears is they know people  who can afford to buy the beta kickstarter of this game would be working during this time.

    Then after I bring this up in fourms what do they do?   Block me from forums and delete my post. If how they treat their investors is any indication of how this game will come out we all should be getting our money back.

    Has anyone felt like they are worth the more and more money they keep asking for with no respect givin to those that helped them?  Sorry posted this in the wrong thread.

    It might be you. I sense none of that in this game.

    The feeling that long term testers gain a sense of ownership happens in every single online game and it's no worse in this one.

    BTW Beta 1 officially is starting possibly tomorrow. The posts above about beta 1 emails saying testing is only for a brief test is just that ... brief tests in preparation for the real beta 1. 

    Real Beta 1 will likely be over entire weekends and brief open tests for beta 1 players during the week. Otherwise week day testing will be typically open to IT and alpha testers. 

    Anyone wanting solid beta testing with more content should wait until later beta stages. This has always been stated as the case.
