    They must know that every time they talk about BR fans are going to ask about the actual game they were supposed to be making. It also raises the question, after the test how much more ongoing time will be spent checking and coding for issues found in the test? When the next test occurs how much more then? Make the MMORPG, park the BR.

    First mistake, using the unreal engine for a mmo.

    are they actually making a br or mmorpg? i mean say said they are testing combat with this BR game..

    The goal is still a mmorpg right?

    Allegedly,  though there's little recent evidence outside a few flora and fauna info shares.

    Thankfully I don't have a horse in this race, but it got me thinking ...

    <tinfoilhat>

    They're running out of money and hope this will help fund them so they don't completely fail.

    They've run out of money and are hoping to pull a Fortnight where the BR takes off so fantastically they can just ignore the MMO.

    Something dramatically bad happened during the dev cycle (lost talent, HD fried, whatever) that this is all they could salvage and hope they can pull a Fortnight.

    This is what those warhammer 40k devs did..promised an mmo, said they were just testing systems then they changed it up and made it a lobby shooter

    Trolls? I remember the day this game was announced on this site. I remember the lofty goals and grand plans. Plans that seemed improbable if not impossible for a team of 1000 developers, all to whip up some crowd funding. The people who wanted this game are the ones being trolled.

    Full disclosure: I didn't think the game sounded like a successful MMORPG as proposed.

    That's not really it at all. What they promised was a Lineage style PvP MMO. What they're screwing around with is a Hexen style arena brawler (only it's not fast shooting mayhem). I'm not saying don't make arena brawlers, I'm saying don't tell me you're making an MMORPG and then make an arena brawler instead. That's all.

    I get it man.

    All these hardcore PvErs complaining when the game is a PvP game is just silly to me tho. Even sillier if they pledged.

    Why should they even care about what those people think. The will not like the game no mater what. 

    Edit- Since it’s a PvP game shouldn’t they get that right before they put in some quest? Lol

    I guess it could always be worse.....say you're going to launch whatever the hell Star Citizen was supposed to be and only produce a flight sim in the end for 'testing.'

    I just cannot see this game ever coming out. They originally pushed the BR as a combat test, but even then, how stupid do they think their backers are? They developed an entire game mode / stand a lone to test out combat and PvP balancing? That's insane and if true, a giant waste of money.

    Is this for real?!?!?!?!

    How can anyone support this project?! This is just too nonsensical.

    I hope the fans stay with the game and the game still manages to hold unto the original promises they made. God bless.

    Basically clicking away text windows ruins every MMO, try to have fun instead of rushing things. Without story and lore all there is left is a bunch of mechanics.

    "100% optional flaggable PvP system" is what was promised originally. ;p
