2 Year Anniversary!!

Slapshot1188Slapshot1188 Member LegendaryPosts: 10,944
It's the 2 year anniversary of the Chronicles of Elyria Kickstarter! (Well in 2 days it will be)

Go back in time to those days.   Remember how the game was supposed to launch back in Q4 2017?
How many of you, honestly... thought that we would be sitting here in May 2018 and not even have entered Alpha yet?

    I had doubts, their plans were very ambitious during the KSer and they didn't really have a team yet. 

    Having seen how CU struggled at first to get properly staffed, it did not inspire confidence that progress would be rapid.

    Didn't think for a second that it would launch in that time (at least not in any sort of polished state)... but yeah, would have expected something playable by now.

    Yeah that's kind of how I felt.  I knew there was no chance in hell that they could launch in 2017... no matter what Caspien's gantt charts said... but I figured they would be well into testing by this point.

    Celebrating the anniversary of a Kickstarter? This is a thing? Is this a serious post or mocking? Cause either way it made me laugh.

    There a big thread on their forums that made me chuckle... To "celebrate" one of the Kings was having lunch sent over for the team so that they could keep coding without disruption :)

    In a strange coincidence (or is it...) Ashes of Creation just sent out some Emails commemorating their 1st Kickstarter Anniversary...

    Funny stuff!

    PS: It also turns out that one of their Rank 10 supporters is such a fan of my posts here that he is incorporating my Harbinger avatar in his.  Good stuff!

    I'd rather have them release a more polished game later than have a Bug fest now. I'm glad they didn't release nor even started Alpha yet. Keep polishing, make it better.

    The people that complain about why it's not released yet or in any Alpha or Beta stage are the same people that would complain if it were released already with Bugs that make it unplayable.

    Keep up the good work SBS.

    What type of person would NOT complain about a game that was released "with Bugs that make it unplayable"?

    It's mind boggling to think that some people actually would not complain, but you are probably correct.  Some would accept an unplayable game and cheer at the progress every time it became less unplayable.

    Change is inevitable....but if change is like this, can we not simply change it back? That's been the line for the mmorpg genre for the past decade.
  • ShaighShaigh Member RarePosts: 2,002
    Most people understood that there was no chance in hell that the game would be done in two years, some of the people defending the project said that the timeframe was unrealistic. My thoughts on the project two years ago can be summed up by three quotes but you could simply replace CoE with any other kickstarter developer that promises the world on a non-existing game budget.


    "I'm almost certain that CoE will be in development in 2020 and still be far away from an official release."


    "Fast-forward 1.5 years in the future and you have the standard excuses of development being hard and that these things take time."



    "What I find troubling is that they will still lack the capital on finishing the project, instead they rely on investors climbing on-board after they showed a proper build to them. If that doesn't happen they will rely on their fans to gather more funds"

    Did I think there was a chance? No

    In fact I do not expect CoE to launch till around 2020.

    I expect them to soon announce that they are opening “VoxElyria” to the highest donors.  It will be under NDA and likely simply consist of moving your Creepers around in a Minecraft environment.  Probably a few dozen people.  This will be hailed as a great success and major milestone and be accompanied by a made up “Lore” event to support a limited time sale.

    Although abitious, I chose to trust SBS at their word when they said it would be launched in Q4 2017. After all, Caspian was very adamant at the time that it was very much achievable. 

    If you don't believe the studio's promises in one area, how can you believe them in any of others? It doesn't make sense to me that anyone would back the KS knowing the release date was a lie from the start. 

    And after they missed launch, I decided to no longer be a backer.

    rofl - you use the same con tricks as a cheap psychic pretending to see into the future

    you have claimed in the past that you have access to all the NDA/Exclusive access info

    this being the case:

    you KNOW that they are opening "VoxElyria" to Alpha I backers

    it won't "likely" simply consist of moving your creepers around, you KNOW that it has clearly been stated that will be the case

    you KNOW it is a minecraft like environment

    you KNOW it will initially be to a very small test group 

    you KNOW that yes it will be chalked down as another significant step towards development of the game

    you also KNOW that you have intentionally left out a bunch of the other NDA stuff that was in that announcement and Q&A which for obvious reasons i can't share, and which explains the reason for the initially small group, and why it is a significant step

    you also know that by making a statement like you made, you set up the stage like any good con man, to make it look like you have some amazing insight into the industry and can predict the next moves of the devs

    taking NDA stuff and saying you 'expect' or it is 'likely' when you know it is certain is nothing other than a con job on your part

    what is hilarious is that you accuse the man with the gantt charts to be a con artist when you yourself are pulling off the scam of 'predicting' the future when you already have information about it - too funny

    am glad i now only check in here every week or two since until this thread was created (same typical 'they promised the game would be out in dec 2017' being puked up each time) it looks like  there were 2-3 posts in the last 2-3 weeks

    'psychic' drama queen stirring with wooden spoons as usual

    i'll catch you in a week or two and enjoy reading your response, because i expect you will make one, and it is likely to be dismissive - wow - look, i can see into the future also, and i didn't have to have access to NDA material to do so - AMAZING!

    Is there an estimate for when it's actually coming out? I didn't realize they tried to say it was launching in 2017, that would have been insane. 

    This game sounds like a good idea, but it seems like it wont be out until 2030.

    I'm not sure if you know what does con man mean. Slap can be labeled as a hater, liar, nagger, maligner, vilifier, mud slinger, scolder, even an old lady with no sex life. But not as a con man because he's not planning to take our money.
