    I believe that they are sincerely trying to make a game,  which is why they have still kept their loyalty base as it where. There is something about a passionate dream that makes you want to root for and believe in them.

    JW has bet his house, and many others on his team have no doubt taken pay cuts and bet their dependable jobs for this venture, just as a new studio, they really don't have the experience to understand what they have gotten into, and have put unrealistic expectations on what they could accomplish.

    Much in the same way I have seen people bid on projects, and while  my employer wanted to take them because they were a low price and offered a good completion date, I had to flatly turn them down, because it was clear from their bid, that they really had no idea what the project entailed.

    Happens with many "dollar and a dream" businesses, no surprise to me that it would happen with KS MMO's.

    But.. I still wish them the best.

    I am worried about the project, the delays/team attitude have turned me from an optimist to a pessimist in regards this project.

    Also the amount the game has changed from pre ks is very upsetting to me as I was eager then.

    I joined the kick starter in a hope we could show that popular trends are not always the best way to go. I don't regret that decision because I still hope we can show it is viable to build a game people want instead of what's best commercially.

    Do I think CoE will do it.... 

    Ask me in 2025 when it's released...

    It's OK.  Caspien has been working on a new "event" tied into fundraising and will contribute a portion to charity. The event will start in about 2 weeks and run to around Labor Day.  Look for updates on the monthlong sale shortly.

    Sigh, 

    Well at least I've got £19 store credit for pre kick-starter influence

    Seeing as his entire pitch was based off of an extremely unrealistic time frame for a unrealistic kitchen sink game

    Probably never. Honestly, he should just come out and say "We don't know when it'll be finished.  Our timeline was unrealistic, coming soon™."  If you are just entering developing stage/funding stage, the worst thing you can do is give people a timeline for when things will be expected to be up and running because you can not predict bugs, syntax errors, features that simply will not work with each other; so now you have to push the timeline back.  And make people angry.  And then more bugs, and push the timeline back, and make people angrier.  Tell people when it is coming out when you actually have a completed, bug-tested product, instead of putting a rope up to hang yourself with by giving a date that is wholly unrealistic when you have barely even started to work on the project.


     If I was to go off the adage of a dollar an hour for entertainment though, I'd be bankrupt from how much enjoyment I'm getting watching the drama continue
