    So much excitement for a game that doesn't exist!

    The community has already created a more interesting game than the developers ever will.

    This whole story is funny to me because their is no game. As far as I know there isn't even any land at the moment. So how exactly does this work.

    It's funny because as much as people call Ship of Heroes, Pantheon, Crowfall, etc... as Vaporware they at least show considerable progress at least once a month. CoE shows nothing. Even if Pantheon goes no where I will give  them props for making a workable PA and all that. CoE is the true vaporware. They have nothing to show and people keep giving them money left and right

    Edit: Also the money being thrown around is insane. 10k dollars pledged to become a king and queen and 60k they raised altogether. Jeez.

    What happened with the previous demos?! This is not even the same aesthetic as the parkour, combat nor the very first demo showing weather, aging system and the inventory system.

    Honestly, it only looks like a 2007 browser game.  And I'm being nice.

    I think they mentioned scrapping it and moving over to new engine so they can make the game faster but someone would have to fact check that. Normally I would but this game makes me sad haha

    Game is not even in Alpha yet. I am sure that by the time this thing gets to release (if ever, have SEVERE doubts) that there will be plenty of Kingdoms who's players have left. Maybe even Kings.

    Seriously, who buys and picks land YEARS before a game releases? This is what happened with Revival, and then they folded. Same Lead Designer... Hmmm...

    From the look of the demo it seems to be approaching Greedmonger level quality already.

    Pre-alpha graphics are place holders so we can test mechanics while they work on art. I've seen delivered promises in recent videos - such as questing, and persona and identity which is a big part of how the deviants, costumes, and crime / bounty hunting system will work. While I cannot say much more due to NDA... as a high level backer from 2015, and before kickstarter, I am happy to say I regained my faith in soulbound studios recently. The project is really coming together and I think the NPC dynamics will be out of this world.

    Actually if they are showing something of substance to the higher level backers its good to know and helps to explain the continued and enthusiastic financial support, thanks for the update.

    looking for affordable properties? visit here at #flatxph
    The chance of your properties being real is bigger then the chance that they are in this game ’Throws bot 10k for non existing stuff.’

    But there are many. You can play them entirely solo, and even offline. Also, you are wrong by default.

    These CoE threads never fail on the comic relief. As so many have pointed out, their original videos they revealed like 3 years ago make this video look like crap. Even if they did move to a different engine, why would they reduce graphic quality? Wouldn't the reason for moving to a new engine be so you could maintain quality or improve it? Thank you for the laughs.

    I point you to these very forums where high level backers (King even) said the exact same things:

    King Detherus April 2018:
    "now i can't break NDA, but i will say that things are moving, and that alpha and beta backers received news that has them excited"
    https://forums.mmorpg.com/discussion/comment/7314033/#Comment_7314033

    Plenty of others going further back.   We heard all about "NDA Stuff"  with VoxElyria (canceled) and ElyriaMud (canceled). 

    I also found it interesting that this exact same non-event (4 players "rebelling" against a "king" on a forum 2+ years before a game releases is on multiple sites (Like MassivelyOP). Did someone actually think this was good publicity and spam all the MMORPG sites?  Wow... if that doesn't speak to the state of the game... 

    So much for Caspien's statement that he was banning MMORPG.COM and MassivelyOP and would take all his updates to PCGamer.   Looks like the last CoE article on PCGamer was June 2016.

    Caspien declared that "This year, we are the storm."  Well, we are 2/3 through the year.  Is the storm really 4 players on a forum made a post that they didn't like their absent "King"?

    Where is the actual playtest with players?

    As the Harbingers pointed out years ago (but was denied by the Ivory Tower), there was no actual game behind those demos. They were simply avatars walking around.

    This is starting to remind me of that one game that was full of deception and lies that a mmorpg.com member posted on that ended up becoming one of the longest threads ever here. Anyone remember the name or have the link to it?!
